While I am a fan of Lynsay Sands, this was not one of my favorite works from her. I was excited for the circus theme, but I just could not get into it. This read was a lot of stop and starts for me to finish it. I didn’t find moments of humor in this romance. It was actually a bit sad. One of the scenes I particularly didn’t find enjoyable was when Divine hits Marco in his genital causing him to bleed. I found this more alarming rather than funny or interesting. But it was referred to many more times throughout the book as a joke, though I did not get it. The best part of the book for me was the ending. The last quarter of the book was the best, but I was sad that as soon as the action started to happen, the book ended.
