"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.

5 (I LOVE THE KOTOVAS ) STARS
"When I was fourteen, my mom took me to the circus…
I fell in love with it."
What an amazing book! Everything wass just perfect! I can tell you that I found the story very intriguing as it has to do with life in the circus. Krista and Becca are two amazing writers and I honestly love whatever they write! In this book I was captivated by the way Thora and Nikolai developed their relationship, to the story and to the secondary characters!!! The Kotovas stole my heart!!I hope the authors will consider to writing about Nikolai's family!!!
Thora leaves her family, her best friend and college to follow her dreams in Vegas.She hopes to get a role in Amour, a famous Russian Acrobatic Show. On her first night in Vegas, she encounters the lead performer of Amour Nikolai Kotova. From the very first moment they meet, there is attraction. The next day is her audition and unfortunately she ends up failing. Nikolai will be there and after this he will ask Thora if she's willing to let him train her for the next seven months so she can be ready for the next auditions. While they spend time together...they develop feelings for each other...
But what is more important for Thora?
To follow her dreams or to love and give herself in him?
I wanted to know more and more about them!! Nikolai is hot, loyal,determined and responsible. I loved Thora for her passion and her determination to achive her dream!! The chemistry between Thora and Nikolai was passionate and electric. What I loved about these two is that we see them grow throughout the book and become better people right till the end of the book!
"I trust this man.With my life.My heart. My soul."
The secondary characters are amazing and they match very well in the book. When I said I loved the Kotovas I mean it!!!Timo and Luca are amazing and funny!
