Review Amour Amour by Krista & Becca Ritchie

Title: Amour Amour
Authors: Krista & Becca Ritchie
Series: Standalone
Release Date: December 12th 2014


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.

*standalone & no love triangles—recommended for readers 18+ for mature content*

Author Bio

NYT & USA Today Bestselling Authors Krista & Becca Ritchie are identical twins—one a science nerd, the other a comic book geek—but with their shared passion for writing, they combined their mental powers as kids and have never stopped telling stories. Now in their early twenties, they write about other twenty-somethings navigating through life, college, and romance. They love superheroes, flawed characters, and soul mate love.

They are the New Adult authors of the Addicted series and Calloway Sisters spin-off series, and you can find them on almost every social media, frolicking around like wannabe unicorns. 


I really wish this book never ended. I really wish there were more about Thora and Nikolai. And I'm not usually one to read several books about and with the same couple. Of course, there are exceptions. Another book with these two would be one.

The heroine, Thora, decides to risk everything to chase her dream. To be in the circus. No, not the regular circus. Think Cirque du Soleil. But everyone tells her that it's insane, she's not talented and wouldn't make it. And after going to Vegas to try out her luck, she doesn't. I think that's one aspect of this book I liked. No, not that the heroine didn't make it, but the realism of it. It would have been too idyllic for her to go there and bam, land the role of her dreams, just like that.

Of course that she doesn't give up. That's something I really loved about Thora. She chose to always get up, dust herself off and try it again. And again. Hence why our hero, the very hot and intense Nikolai decided to be the one to help her out by training her.

Now Nik... He has his own baggage - three younger siblings that go crazy and he has to keep them under control. Hard feat. But I love them, and I love the Kotovas. They stick together, through thick and thin and they embrace and accept Thora, like she's one of their own.

"Some days I still wonder if I've found me. Maybe we never stop searching. Maybe we evolve the way seasons change, seamlessly without really knowing, not until all the leaves have fallen."

To be honest, this book spoke to me; some things really resonated and maybe that's why I loved it so much. Nowadays, I just go into a book, expecting to like it. Sad, but what can you do? Not this one. It will also stay with me, for a long time and I'll be rereading it, too.

Oh and really, I need a Nikolai Kotova in my life. Everyone needs a Nikolai Kotova in their lives.

5+++ stars and I really, really wish it never ended. Looking forward to more.
