I was so nervous to read this book. I make no secret of my love for these authors, the Addicted Series is one of my all-time favorite series, and I was so nervous because I really wanted this book to be just as great. And in a world filled with generic NA books, these author always manage to make their stories unique and beautiful. The Ritchie sisters know how to write amazing characters. One of my favorite things about the Addicted Series are the characters, and their relationships between each other, whether it’s familial, friendly, or romantic. Amour Amour is no different, this book has an amazing set of characters, and their relationships with each other feel genuine and realistic. Thora James has one more year of college to go before she decides to leave it all behind and follow her dream of joining the show Amour in Las Vegas. The Richie sisters always write such amazing female characters (I mean they created the Calloway sisters, goddesses all of them.) Thora was wonderful. She experiences so much growth throughout the story. I mean, quitting college to pursue your goals while everyone doubts you takes some serious bravery and I found it extremely admirable. In her first night at Vegas she meets Nikolai Kotova, one of the stars of Amour. His relationships with his younger siblings and his unconditional support for Thora made him a memorable hero and I loved his brutal honesty. The side characters are incredibly well developed, specifically John and the Kotova siblings. They felt so real, and you could feel their ambition, kindness, and talent. They bring humor into the story and fill it with heart-warming moments. With themes of self-discovery and following your dreams, Amour Amour was a brutally honest read. Thora pushes herself, both emotionally and physically to get to her goals and the amount of road blocks she faced was heartbreaking. And while there is a romance, hello it’s called Amour Amour, it never took over the story, and it wasn’t the main focus. Overall, this is an NA book that avoids the typical NA cliches and I highly recommend it. If you haven’t checked out any of the Ritchie twins’ books, well, you should. P.S. I really think a John and Timo book is needed after Infini. (I hope and pray for this) But that’s just me.

5+++ Stars  Krista & Becca Ritchie have cemented themselves as my FAVORITE authors!! This book was brilliant. I connected with every single character. I loved Thora! She has so much courage. I loved how she followed her dreams. Her character development was great. And Nikolai was so swoon worthy it was ridiculous. I loved how he pushed Thora to be better. How he never stood in the way of her dreams, even if it meant he would lose her. Their relationship was great. I loved the whole Kotova clan. I need more Timo!! Timo and John were so cute together. I would love to read more about them. And i can't for the next book to come out, Infini. I was intrigued by Luka so i can't wait to learn more about him. Overall, this book was amazing. Everyone should read it. Krista & Becca Ritchie can do no wrong! <3

I'm going to keep my review for Amour Amour short and sweet since I read it over two months ago. Believe me, my failure to write a review has *nothing* to do with my enjoyment of the book. Because, really, it was absolutely spectacular. I just suck at writing reviews sometimes... especially when I love a book as much as I did this one. I've been a fan of Krista & Becca Ritchie's books since I first picked up Addicted to You and binge read it while chomping on my fingernails because it was so freaking intense. I've fallen in love with all of their books and each of their characters. If you asked me what my favorite series is right now, I wouldn't hesitate before saying the Addicted series. It's everything. I want it to be a TV show. All that said, I was most excited about Amour Amour because I couldn't wait to see how they wrote characters that *aren't* Lo, Lily, Connor, Rose, Ryke and Daisy. I wanted to see if they could keep that same magic with new characters. And boy, did they ever.  Everything about Amour Amour was incredible. First and foremost, the characters! I loved Thora. Her character development throughout this book, as she chased her nearly impossible dream of performing, was phenomenal. Even if a reader can't relate to her specific dream, they can understand how she feels about it. Who doesn't have a dream to do what they love most? Nikolai is one of my new favorite book boyfriends. Hellllllo, sexy Russian. Gawd. He was strong and demanding, but a softie underneath. He was totally swoony. The secondary characters in this book? I loved pretty much every single one of them. This is one of the best casts I've read in a book so far. They're all totally worthy of their own books and I hope they get them. Not that I'm greedy or anything...  I loved the setting for this book. It was downright magical. The world-building was fantastic and I felt like I was living every performance with them. I could visualize every move. I've seen Amour Amour described as Cirque du Soleil meets Center Stage and that's just about the most perfect way EVER to describe it. It would make an amazing movie. The performances, characters and their development, romance and hot Russian men would make it the total visual package. I'd watch it. Over and over again. I was completely enamored with everything about this book. I seriously couldn't walk away from it. Amour Amour can definitely stand on its own, but I would LOVE to see books from the perspectives of some of the other characters. (Or, you know, all of them.) And if I can't have them all, can I at least have a Timo book? Please? He was easily my favorite secondary character. But the others were fantastic too. Everything about this was. It was more than a book. It was an experience. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Oh, the two wizards that are Krista and Becca Ritchie! Their books have moved and touched the deepest parts of my soul and I will forever hold them dear and close to my heart. After finishing their first stand-alone novel, I can tell you that I found Amour Amour to be exciting, and the circus setting most definitely added to the otherwise fun, humorous and sensuous story. "Some days I still wonder if I’ve found me. Maybe we never stop searching. Maybe we evolve the way seasons change, seamlessly without really knowing, not until all the leaves have fallen." Thora is a great heroine to follow, because she’s so passionate about what she does. Yes, she has her doubts: people constantly tell her that she isn’t good enough, she will never make it yada yada yada, but she always proves them wrong; her determination not foolish, but admirable. Of course, she has her fair share of little [or not so little *cough* pun *cough*] helpers and I believe that this is a very crucial part of being successful. Eventually you do need someone to root for you; to give you a helping hand every now and then. Here’s where John, Camila and the Kotovas come into play.  The secondary characters are what made this book for me. I love sibling relationship so much—especially the complicated, yet loving ones and the Kotovas could give everyone and anyone a run for their money in this aspect. These kids made me cry and laugh out loud more than once. Their friendship with Thora was so endearing that I wanted to squish them together, put them in my pocket and keep them forever. Thank goodness for re-reading, yeah? I loved their personality quirks and there’s so much to explore with each individual that I sincerely hope we do get some companion novels one day.  I loved the setting! There were parts that took my breath away—a prime example being the first time Thora visits the Amour show. It’s described beautifully and makes you feel like you’re not just reading the scene, but rather watching it there alongside her. Also, the romances were pretty darn hot. I liked Thora and Nik together, but there was another couple who brought my obsessive shipper side out and OH. MY. CONNOR. COBALT. SERIOUSLY THIS OTP YOU GUYS!!!!! I WAS ROLLING ON THE FLOOR GASPING FOR AIR BECAUSE THIS COUPLE! I AM SO HEART EYES YOU DON’T KNOW HOW HEART EYES. THEY NEED THEIR OWN BOOK. PRETTY PLEASE. I am willing to bring out the tears and puppy eyes if necessary. Even though it wasn't my favorite book by the twins, I liked this story a lot and thoroughly recommend it! While some parts of the novel were predictable, there were A LOT of parts that made me gasp and say “GET OUT OF HERE! NO WAY! DID THIS JUST HAPPEN?? *wipes back a few pages and reads again* OMG THIS DID JUST HAPPEN!” out loud, so you can say that there are quite a few coup de théâtre’s here and there. Amour Amour is a chemistry filled story with a lot of passion, heart and character growth. You can see, feel and almost touch the passion Krista and Becca have put into this novel: there are so many pieces of them in Amour Amour for the rest of the world to see, if only you know where to look. It’s inspiring, enthralling, brave and admirable! I hope we do get to meet the Kotovas again in the future and get a front row seat from different povs to all the acts bound to happen in their crazy lives. Overall rating: 4.5 out of 5.0

Every now and again, you'll encounter an author (or two authors as the case may be) that just blows you away. Every single book they write is astounding and you fall in love with everything of theirs that you read. You find yourself anticipating their next book before you know anything about it. Doesn't matter what the book is about, you've got to get your hands on it ASAP. Every time you finish their most recent book, you're counting down the days until the next one is released. You might even be a little obsessive. Obviously, Krista and Becca have staked their claim on my list of Favorite Authors. And for a very good reason. Amour Amour is a fantastic book! There's so many things I could talk about that make this book great, but I don't want to give away any spoilers. However, here are some great, non spoiler parts that I enjoyed... The characters. Krista and Becca always craft such wonderful characters. They always feel like real people to me. They have flaws and make mistakes, but they are still people we love. Thora's got amazing determination. Nikolai is super sexy (not just looks, either! Who doesn't like a family man?), but still very realistic. Nikolai's family is awesome, too. I love Timo and Katya, especially. All of the secondary characters provide depth to the story, none of them fade away or seem like they're just taking up space. The scenario. I've never been to Vegas, but I certainly want to go even more now! Oh, and the circus? It's always interested me a little bit, but after reading Amour Amour, I can see myself watching videos on YouTube for hours on end. Krista and Becca make these things come alive in their books. I really enjoy a book that makes me more interested in things in the real world. It's clear that Krista and Becca's success isn't limited to their amazing Addicted series. They've absolutely hit the nail on the head with this book. Of course, everyone likes more story, but I'm perfectly okay with this being a standalone book (though I would never turn down a sequel... or three). And, as always, I look forward to reading their next book (no matter what it happens to be!). You can read all of my reviews on my blog, KDH Reviews.
