Amour Amour →

Rating: 4.5 Cups of Coffee

Goodreads’ Book Description:"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--acrobaticpartners, 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.

Natasha’s Experience:This right here is a good book. No, scratch that. This is a great book.

You know that feeling you get when you read and all of a sudden it’s not just a bunch of words on a page, but a movie playing out inside of your head? That’s what AMOUR AMOUR did for me.

Krista & Becca Ritchie are a power team. I’d like to pay rent and live inside their heads eventually, if that’s all right?

The attention to detail swept me off my feet and landed me directly in Las Vegas. Seriously, being able to describe an acrobatic show the way K & B did, giving the reader a front row view to a performance inside of our own heads completely blew my mind.

The connection that Thora James and Nikolai Kotova share is addicting to say the least. You become so enthralled by their interactions that you can’t wait to see what they will say or do next.

Nikolai was so patient and selfless when it came to training Thora. He was hard and demanding, but only for good reason.

“Why are you so patient with me?” I whisper.
“Because every part of me wants to take care of you.”

My favorite part about this intense love story wasn’t even just living through Thora’s eyes and falling completely in love with Nik—which did happen, I can attest to this. It was meeting all of the other secondary characters –Timo, Camila, John, Katya, Luka, etc. They transformed this story by adding their own bits and pieces of personality.
