This is the first book in this trilogy. The author does a nice job of setting up the atmosphere and characters. Setting the heart of this story in a circus just reinforced the idea of who would run away to join the circus as well as the circus’ reputation of attracting those who are a bit unusual.
The romance is sweet and a definite slow burn for the leading characters. The simmering undercurrent of their chemistry comes through even when Stella is fighting against it. With supporting characters that help secure the foundation of the plot, this is a very good read. I feel like Christine and Ruby could be a whole other book.
The only thing I would have liked to see was a little more background on Stella to help me understand the why and how of her life changing decision. Why did she believe it would make a difference for her brother and how it would come about.
This book does end with a question but lucky for me, I have the next two books to seek the answer.
She needs a miracle. He can literally do magic. When their paths collide, will they be each other’s soulmate…or each other’s destruction? Find out in this exciting paranormal romance trilogy, all in one complete box set!
What if the chance to right a wrong came in the form of one extraordinary man?
Stella Burberry has sworn off bad boys, wild nights, and the lifestyle that goes with them. She blames herself for the pool party that landed her teenage brother in a coma.
Of course, that’s precisely when Ben Ware shows up in her life sporting bruises from a fight and a devastating smile. Stella knows he’s going to test her ability to stick to the plan: avoid all temptation, even if it comes in an enticing and mysterious package.
Soon, however, she uncovers an explosive revelation about Ben, something that might help her comatose brother. But the harder she tries to convince Ben to use his gifts, the more she risks falling under an entirely different kind of spell…
Ben Ware believes he’s cursed. He possesses telekinesis, the ability to manipulate matter with his mind. It’s an ability he’s forced to conceal unless he wants to risk worldwide exposure and having governments or corporations wield his power as a weapon.
But Stella’s devotion to her brother makes him question his beliefs. And his attraction to Stella is an unstoppable force, pulling him closer and making it hard to deny her anything.
Can he take a chance and stretch the boundaries of his skills for her sake? Or will helping her be his ultimate downfall?
