Along the way she meets Graham. He is a former Navy SEAL and the Sheriff of the local town that her circus has stopped by. Living in the shadow of his brother, always being made to feel that he was not good enough. Graham helps to raise his nephew and tries to ignore his overbearing father. When he gets one look at Belle, he is sunk.
But circus life does not allow for relationships. So they decide to see where it all goes, knowing that it will end eventually. Throw in some crazy characters and a kink, that I never saw coming. And you have an awesome refreshing story with great characters and a unique story line.
Will Graham and Belle be able to find a way to make a relationship work or are they doomed before they even have a chance to start?
When a book starts off with an intro like that, you know you are in for a fun read – I mean how could a book with clowns in it not be fun? But there was also a lot more – lots of romance, lots of mystery/suspense, and some real colorful characters that drew me right in to the story from the first page (ok, it was the clowns, I admit it!)
I loved Belle and Graham. Belle has been looking for stability her whole life. She ran away from the circus to put down roots, and all she really wants to do is have a place to call home. Graham has come back to the small town he grew up in to be responsible. After running away to New York City and then enlisting with the Navy and becoming a SEAL, he feels a sense of obligation and duty to the people of Buck Falls – especially his brother’s widow and his nephew – and just wants to live up to everyone’s expectations. When Belle and Graham first meet, sparks instantly fly between them and you can tell they are just so right for each other. Of course Belle has been burned before by the local boy who only wants to use her, but when the circus settles in for a bit of an extended stay – thanks to Tiny the Elephant – they agree to a temporary relationship.
Of course even at the circus things aren't all fun and games, and it quickly becomes obvious that someone is out to sabotage the Black Shadow Circus. And when Graham thinks Belle might be in danger, he makes sure he does all he can to protect her. Of course when emotions run high and priorities must be re-evaluated, Graham and Belle find themselves with more than a big top between them.
This was a really fun read that I thoroughly enjoyed! I loved the use of the circus as a backdrop to the story – it was so unique and allowed for the inclusion of some really colorful characters and issues that you normally wouldn't come across in any other story. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone!
I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
Belle Black was raised in the circus life. It is all she knew. Her family had founded and ran the Black Shadow Circus for generations. Her mother passed away when she was a young girl leaving her to be raised by her father. When she turned 18, she dreamed of a bigger life than that of the circus. She left and started her own life. Belle worked hard and was successful. She had her own place and was co-owner of a tattoo parlor. Then tragedy struck when her father died and was forced back into the circus life. Belle was struggling to keep her family’s legacy afloat due to the extreme amount of debt her father left for her to handle.
Pulling into the small town, the circus was going to do a weekend’s worth of performances to help raise funds to hold them over for the winter season. Graham’s father, the mayor, was not happy with the intrusion of circus folk in his humble town. To appease his father, the police chief decides to check it out and assure him that one weekend of circus performers will not cause havoc.
Belle and Graham’s first introduction didn’t go over well and continued on a roller coaster ride after that. They were immediately attracted to each other but Belle knew all too well that people from the circus and townies did not mix. She was only there for a few days and knew nothing would come from her attraction to Graham, but that didn’t stop the magnetic pull that they felt for one another.
Circumstances changed causing Belle and the circus to stick around longer than planned. Graham and Belle had to address the elephant in the room (or rather the elephant found running loose in the town-seriously there was an elephant in the town that didn’t belong to Belle’s circus). Will temptation become too strong when Graham and Belle are faced with more time together? Read to find out! I loved this book. It was such a great read. I was entranced and stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to finish it. There is danger, suspense, romance, evil twists and turns, clowns with rubber noses, and lots of fun! I definitely would recommend this book to a friend.
