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 "nonexistent" relationship, but 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 remain in the background of his spellbinding show.

I read, A LOT. I have a very high expectation when it comes to books be it audio, print or ebooks.
I absolutely love this book. The plot, the characters, just everything, it worked for me. I'm not a fan of the authors' other books really so you know, my love is based 100% on the book. That being said, I felt like the narration was not really up to par.
When the narrator is reading Tora, it's fine, no issues. When she reads male voices however, that's when it falls flat for me. Her voice goes a little stronger (more male like) speaking one line to a softer one (more female) in the next. There is a line where it reads "... he says in that low husky voice" yet he sounds just like Thora does. It's not as if I'm expecting the narrator to sound exactly like a man, I just think the way she read Nikolai was not consistent throughout the book.
Still, it wasn't horrible or hard to listen to. I do think I'd rather read the book again as opposed to listen to it.
Great perspective on an unsalted theme. I really liked the main characters. Nikoli a great alpha lead without being too mean or the character overcooked. Thoras internal dialogue of self doubt but gritty determination was refreshing to read. Loved the whole book.
