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.

Krista & Becca Ritchie can do no wrong! <3
Krista & Becca Ritchie have cemented themselves as my FAVORITE authors!! This book was brilliant. I connected with every single character. I loved Thora! She has so much courage. I loved how she followed her dreams. Her character development was great. And Nikolai was so swoon worthy it was ridiculous. I loved how he pushed Thora to be better. How he never stood in the way of her dreams, even if it meant he would lose her. Their relationship was great. I loved the whole Kotova clan. I need more Timo!! Timo and John were so cute together. I would love to read more about them. And i can't for the next book to come out, Infini. I was intrigued by Luka so i can't wait to learn more about him. Overall, this book was amazing. Everyone should read it. Krista & Becca Ritchie can do no wrong! <3
This is one of the best books I've read in awhile. I couldn't put it down. It's written from Thora's POV (though I'm in serious need of a chapter or more from Nik's POV). She's a 21 yo who leaves her safe life in Ohio to try out for a part in a Vegas circus acrobatic show. Things don't quite go the way she hopes and she has to choose between her safe life with family and a college scholarship, or the life of a struggling performer pursuing her dreams. Along the way she meets some great friends and Nikolai, the second half of the acrobatic show that she dreams of. Nik protects, teaches, encourages, respects her, and takes things at her pace.
The writing was great, keeping the story constantly moving. Funny at times and I caught myself smiling a lot. It was sexy, but now that I think back there was very few actual sex scenes. Mostly just seduction and love. A true romance. I want more.
Love of life
I cannot express how amazing this book is. I have read 300+ books in the last 2 years and this probably makes the top 10 list. The main characters interaction and sense of voice was amazing. Seriously buy this book. Though I do recommend you to be at least a teenager.
