It’s no easy feat transitioning from the disciplined arena of competitive gymnastics to the artistic whirl of the Cirque du Monde. Kelsey Martin finds secret inspiration in Theo Zamora, a dark, taciturn trapezist--until his partner dies in a tragic accident and he decides to leave the circus for good. Theo doesn’t understand why Kelsey reaches out to him, only that she compels him with her unique combination of innocence and recklessness. Before long the two are collaborating on an aerial silks act for a new production, the Cirque du Minuit. Theo’s impatience with Kelsey’s naivete is matched only by his passion for her, and the two soon become embroiled in a tempestuous, consuming romance. But some still blame Theo for his partner’s accident, and danger wraps up the two performers as inevitably as the scarlet silk of their act. Theo and Kelsey must find a way to connect and trust one another as he leads her deeper and deeper into a dangerous world of control and desire.

Theo is dark, ruthles and confident, with small instances of accute asshole behavour :D I loved every minute of this bo...
5 HUGE Stars!Full review coming soon, but let me say this ... THIS IS WHAT ROMANCE IS ALL ABOUT!
"Go away from me and do what you do. Bulldoze on thru life, eating colored sugar and shitting rainbows out of your goddamn ass"I liked this one. Especially the end. Theo is different in an obnoxious lovable way. It's a little bit like Shannon Miller (olympic gymnast) meets Baryshnikov or the Zsar of...
I love the artistry of performers. I love to hate all my French friends--I'm so American and unabashed that we just end of chatting and spitting sly insults all the time. This book reminded me of restraining the urge to slap. Entertaining and this maybe Joseph's strongest female protagonist to-date.
