Overview on the Aerial Ethereal Series by Krista & Becca Ritchie

It enthralls, captivates and strikes you like no other. That’s what a circus is. And so much more.

Aerial Ethereal introduces us to a stunning cast of gymnasts and aerialists tasked and paid to entertain in front of a live audience. But the story focuses more on the personal struggles of central characters, their dreams, family, psychology and mental issues that are too relatable to ignore.

Amour Amour tells the story Thora James and Nikolai Kotova. Thora, a girl who dreams of being a part of the fantabulous Aerial Ethereal and Nikolai who is a star of the company – naturally gifted with the ability to hold the audience’s attention. Two individuals sharing the same passion in the circus. Two individuals with very different skills set.

Theirs is a love that started as a simple attraction, turned passionate and deep in time.

Infini is the coffee to Amour Amour’s cream. It’s angsty, dramatic and tackles some real psychological and mental issues that many of us today may easily relate to. It focuses on Baylee Wright and Luka Kotova’s story. Both already active members of Aerial Ethereal but performing on different shows. Both aching to strike a conversation, but are legally-bound not to.

Theirs is proof that first love never dies – it stays. And the more it’s drawn apart, the stronger the feeling stays.


I’ve finished reading both books and I can’t help it! I crave for more. There is complexity in its beauty and I hundred percent love to read more (if any.)

As to my thoughts on both, we’ll have to save that for another post!

Mark Your Calendars! January 17 – ‘Tangled Like Us’ (Like Us Series Book 4)

Like seriously. Never have I  been very excited waiting for a book sequel!

Damaged Like Us, the first installment, was an accidental find as part of my Kindle’s free ebooks and it’s amazing! Needless to say, I had to purchase books 2 and 3 because I just had to. There was no debate. No second thoughts.

So when I learned how book 4 was on its way, HURRAY!

Yes! I need more and the Ritchie sisters don’t disappoint!

Patience isn’t my strong point, but I’m being tested. Two days more. Just two days more and Tangled Like Us will officially be available! I can’t wait.

Here’s a sneak peek of the book’s first page from Krista and Becca’s official Instagram.

Damaged Like Us (Book 1) by Krista & Becca Ritchie -A sizzling series debut!

Honestly, if there’s one special, accidental find I consider on this year’s random reading list, THIS will be IT.

Damaged Like Us came as a free read in my Kindle device, and it’s practically more than what I expected. Way, way more. Even better than some books I purchased for more than the entertainment it offered.

I never read the synopsis. I went and dove into the book for the sheer interest I had with the title and the book cover. Yes, cover design matters.  I like visuals.

Surprise, surprise!

First 3 pages, I knew it will be romance. Good-looking protagonist, with a hot bodyguard and all that’s missing, is our guy’s romantic interest. And I was so damn sure it’s a woman. A cool, highly-trained female bodyguard for our American billionaire – and he has no idea. Interesting start. Quite predictable, but interesting.

Dear World, stop fucking with me. Sincerely, an agitated human. – Maximoff

Exactly! Because while I was dead sure we’re looking for a lady bodyguard, a solid buff walks in the scene and my surprise-slash-confusion skyrockets to a maximum level. And it doesn’t help that I’m grinning so hard for that twist.

So this is what it is….

Like right now, I try to ignore his overwhelming presence, and I slowly cap the juice jug again. My gaze stays on him. No matter how hard I say look at the juice. – Maximoff

And the initial flow of the story is so beautifully written, characters well described that I have all the reason to jump on the same boat as Maximoff. Because he’s being too overly affected that the emotions metaphorically seeps out of the book! (technically, the ebook).

So yes, I was surprised by the twist, but I was all in for it.

The Maximoff-Farrow chemistry

Is more than just a theory. You see, ALL protagonists for romance stories have to have chemistry. It’s a need to keep the interest up – the fuel to the plot’s engine, the spice to the potentially bland monotone of a plot. Without it, romance dies.

And this ship, whatever it’s called at this point, is far from dead. It is sailing first-class!

TENSION is overwhelming, I dare say. And there were more instances that I could count when I wished to get a knife to cut the tension myself. And when it finally came to that point when tension has to be broken, it was just plain EXPLOSIVE! Maximoff and Farrow are memorable characters, but they’ve elevated themselves to a whole new level when placed in a romantic ship with them both as captains. And I was in for the ride!

This is the first book in the Like Us series which dedicates at least the first three books to Maximoff and Farrow’s story. Needless to say,  I’m grabbing myself a copy of the next installment!
