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.


Highly entertaining and addictive! Lani Lynn Vale is known for her quirky characters and “out there” scenarios sometimes, but her characters always work and pour their heart and soul onto the pages to addict a reader to their plight and have us rooting for their happily ever after from the start of the book until the finish. The second book in the Welcome to the Circus series by Vale is utterly delightful. We’re thrown for a loop in several instance, but we’re delighted with the instant connection between this super fun couple and adorable little girl who steals our heart. I’m loving this series super hard and cannot wait for more!

Slone and Ari are attention grabbing and really sincere people and I loved every minute of their romance. I’m hooked on them and can’t wait to see more of them as the series continues.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys a close knit family who works hard to support each other even as family drama plays out behind the scenes as love finds one sibling after another and their family grows.
