Amour Amour by Krista & Becca Ritchie
For those of you who don’t know already, Krista & Becca Ritchie are some of my favorite writers. The characters they develop NEVER leave you. And I mean never. I’m so addicted (no pun intended) to every book of theirs. Amour Amour was no different.
Empowering. Motivational. Inspirational.
This book was relatable for anyone who has dreams that seem unattainable. For anyone who wants to take a risk to make their life what they’ve always hoped for. For anyone who wants to follow their heart, not their mind.
Thora wants to follow her heart. No matter how much it may be a better, safer decision to stay in college and finish for her degree. She has a calling. A chance. A once in a lifetime opportunity. Risk or regret. She doesn’t want to regret.
She takes a chance on a big city. A big dream. And an even bigger Russian.
Romantic. Stimulating. Enchanting.
Thora works at her dreams. She never gives up. She falls in love with the art more and more each day she trains, while Nikolai makes her feel things she’s never felt before. Passion, art, and love, all wrapped up into one exhilarating story. And as far as Nikolai is concerned… My damn. He’s sexy as hell.
I don’t want to give away too much information on this story, but WOW. This story has everything. It reminded me why I fell in love with the Ritchie twins’ writing in the first place.
And every time KB Ritchie called out the characters from the Addicted series, I got all sorts of tingly. Read all KBRitchie books. You’ll fall in love.
“I’d help you every day so that you could see a better tomorrow. I will never give you less than that.”
“We’re not going to fit together.”
“We are,” he says lowly. “In all ways.”
We all traverse in and out of people’s worlds, leaving footprints. Some larger, some smaller, but there is always a mark. We can’t sweep it away.
“I’m in love with you,” I whisper.
He tries to smile but his eyes flood instead. “Don’t love me more than your dreams, myshka. Because I love you too much to let you give them up for me.”
“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.
