The Failed Audition
Love is a circus
Thora James has one dream. Become an aerialist in Amour, the sexy new acrobatic show on the Vegas strip.
Her dreams do not include:
1.Meeting Nikolai Kotova the night before her audition
2.Losing a bet to that confident, charming, and devilishly captivating six-foot-five “God of Russia”
3.Letting that devil pierce an…intimate part of her
4.Walking into her audition and seeing himthere
So when Thora fails the most important audition of her life and refuses to give up her dream, Nikolai feels compelled to protect the innocent, Midwest girl with dark-as-night eyes.
But Sin City is ready to swallow Thora whole, and with Nikolai being her ultimate protector, Thora starts realizing her dreams might be changing.
And that’s her greatest fear of all.
This sexy and unputdownable Contemporary Romance can best be described as Cirque du Soleil meets the steamy, athletic romance of Center Stage.
This book was previously published with the title Amour Amour.
Great romance read!
This book is a great read filled with a pure romance and has a great family aspect. Also has a nice diverse character representation. Would definitely recommend.
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.
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.
