Once upon a time, circus artist Trix Lane was the best around. Her spark vanished with her confidence, though, and reclaiming either has proved…difficult. So when the star of The Festival of Masks is nixed and Trix is unexpectedly thrust into the spotlight, it’s exactly the push she needs. But the joy over her sudden elevation in status is cut short by a new hire on the makeup team.
Leo Magasiva: disgraced wizard of special effects. He of the beautiful voice and impressive beard. Complete dickhead and — in an unexpected twist — an engagingly good kisser.
To Leo, something about Trix is…different. Lovely. Beautiful, even though the pint-size, pink-haired former bane of his existence still spends most of her waking hours working to annoy him. They’ve barely been able to spend two minutes together for years, and now he can’t get enough of her. On stage. At home. In his bed.
When it comes to commitment, Trix has been there, done that, never wants to do it again. Leo’s this close to the job of a lifetime, which would take him away from London — and from Trix. Their past is a constant barrier between them.
It seems hopeless.
Utterly impossible.

I finally read the 3rd book on the London Celebrities series. It took me ages, but I finally did it, eheh. To be honest, I do think this series works best as audiobooks for me, and so I was kind of waiting for the audio to be available on Scribd to jump on it. I'm glad I did. I'm sure I would have loved this book no matter what, but the narration is wonderful.

Once again the writing is awesome! And Billie Fulford-Brown just brings the book to life. Love it. 

Another thing I loved were the characters. Trix is a force of nature, who was dimmed by a terrible experience. I hated that her stupid ex had dimmed her light, but I loved that she was able to get past that, even if at extremely slow pace. Step by step she started coming out of her shell again, believe in her capacities and giving so much sass to everyone. She's awesome, and I love her. Also, she has pink hair... I love pink hair.

Leo was such an awesome surprise. I loved his strength and the way he loved Trix, and was willing to help her and support her, and his goal was always to make her believe in herself. And even though he was scared a lot of times, he still moved at her pace, because he understood she needed that. <3 I love Leo! 

The banter between these two was amazing and so well written. The romance was also fantastic, their chemistry was off the charts. I just loved every single moment they were together, because it was so so entertaining.

The epilogue was beautiful, and I was so very glad to see a little of Lily and Luc on this story too. 

I highly recommend this one, and I have to say it again: the audiobook is fantastic. Also, if you want, here is LISA'S REVIEW of this book too.
