Love is a circus "Every day,” he says lowly, “I hold a person’s life in my hands. The circus is based one-hundred percent off trust. I give it all to someone, and they give it all to me.” The best aerial technique won’t land 21-year-old Thora James her dream role in Amour—a sexy new acrobatic show on the Vegas strip. Thora knows she’s out of her element the second she meets Amour’s leading performer. Confident, charming and devilishly captivating, 26-year-old Nikolai Kotova lives up to his nickname as the “God of Russia.” When Thora unknowingly walks into the crosshairs of Nikolai’s after-show, her audition process begins way too soon. Unprofessional. That’s what Nik calls their “non-existent” relationship. It’s not like Thora can avoid him. For one, they may be partners in the future—acrobatic partners, that is. But getting closer to Nik means diving deeper into sin city and into his dizzying world. Thora wants to perform with him, but when someone like Nikolai attracts the spotlight wherever he goes—Thora fears that she’s destined to be just background to his spellbinding show. This sexy and exhilarating New Adult Romance can best be described as Cirque du Soleil meets the steamy, athletic romance of Center Stage. *standalone & no love triangles—recommended for readers 18+ for mature content*

This was such a great book! I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of it. This was my frist time reading one of their books that takes place outside of the Addicted/Calloway Sisters series. Before reading this book, I was looking for a good romance to get lost it and I remember that I had this book on my Kindle and that I had not had the opportunity to read it so I randomly decided to pick it up and I’m glad I did. While I’m not a huge sports fanatic, I did enjoy the aerial elements of the novel. It was interesting to read about and learn the skills needed to perform in a show that contained all types of aerial choreography and equipment.

I did enjoy the romance of this novel. It was cute watching the Romance develop between Thora and Nic. At first I did not know how I would feel about Thora, but I grew to love her. She comes off as indecisive sometimes, but she’s passionate and I loved that she followed her heart and her dreams even when everyone around her tried to convince her that she shouldn’t. It was heartbreaking to continuously watch people doubt her capabilities as a performer, but I’m glad that she always had Nic and his family rooting for her. The side romances were also entertaining and I can’t wait to learn more about those especially Timo and John. I know there is a second book that focuses on Luca, but I would to see Timo star in his own book.

The writing of this book as easy and it flowed naturally. I wasn’t surprised as I’ve always felt that way about past books that they have written. However, what I did appreciate about the writing in this book was the descriptions affiliated with the acrobatics. I’ve aerial shows like cirque du soleil before; however, I don’t usually describe with any details except amazing : ) so it was definitely rewarding to see that these two authors studied the artistic nature of aerobatics enough to be able to write about it. That’s not something that every author does so I enjoyed it.

Overall, it was an amazing book with such a nice love story. I knew that I would like this book as much as their other novels.
