Slone Day, defensive end for the Longview professional football team, has a lot on his plate.

He’s at the peak of his career, he’s a single father raising a girl that’s border line genius and can’t seem to find the time to date. Let alone see someone seriously.

He’s perfectly content living his life as it is.

Then he goes to a circus.

There, he meets a woman that literally takes his breath away.

And in one bold, crazy, this is probably going to backfire move, he not only asks the woman out. But he invites her to spend the next two weeks with him while she’s recovering from an incident.


There she is, a practical invalid who can’t go anywhere without being babysat, experiencing a crisis in the middle of a public setting, when she spots him.

The moment that Caristonia Singh meets Slone, she realizes her life is about to change.

Meeting men when you work in a circus is practically impossible. That’s why she’s the inexperienced girl that doesn’t know how to act around a hot guy.

A really big, really sexy, holy crap he could toss me over his head and make it look easy, guy.

From the moment he comes to her defense—family can be dicks sometimes—she starts falling.

But nothing good ever lasts when it comes to the circus life.

People come and go. No one ever stays.

But Slone is dead set on proving her wrong, but she’s learned firsthand that nothing good ever lasts.

freak showFreak Show is book two in the Welcome to the Circus series featuring Caristonia. All the siblings have weird-ish names, so I was glad when Slone started calling her Ari. It was just easier in my head.

Ari has a twin sister who is bat crap crazy. She is also MEAN. These siblings show that not all families are meant to be around each other all the time. After another issue with her sister, Ari takes some time off from the circus and travels with the Longview Liner’s football team and Slone. These two have a fast love, but both have complicated lives. Ari is tied to the circus and her family, especially with some of her sister’s issues. Slone is a single dad and a professional football player. I really loved them together and loved his daughter and teammates as well. Plus, we get a cameo by Banner and Perry, and Trance and Viddy! If you have read all of Lani’s books (like I have), you love these little cross over moments.

The story deals with some serious issues and I appreciated how all the characters handled it. Slone was always protective of Ari, which is something I adore!

  1. I really love the idea behind this book and this series. Sounds like they have a unique dynamic. and I adore the circus theme. Although the covers are kinda weird lol But I have enjoyed this author in the past so very curious about this one.
