AITA: Am I the asshole?
Five years ago when she left, she broke my heart. No warning. No hey, this isn’t working out. No nothing. Just poof. One day she’s there, in my bed, and we’re talking about our futures. The next, she’s gone.
So when she shows up five years later and acts like she didn’t leave me with a broken heart, I get angry. So. Freakin’. Angry.
Of course, this is where I spiral. When we went through medical school together, we were on equal footing. Not anymore. Now I’m her attending, and I’ve made it my personal mission to make her life hell.
She wants to finish up her residency and finally become a doctor? Well, she’ll have to go through every single bad thing I can throw at her, first.
Seeping, maggot-infested, pus-filled bed sore? Yep, that’s hers to take care of. Man shitting every three seconds uncontrollably? That’s also hers. Man and woman having a baby while also in the throes of a divorce? You guessed it. Hers.
If I can make her leave after what she put me through, I’ll feel accomplished.
Only problem is, I forgot how determined Valhalla Singh was. Guess she’ll be reminding me.
Because Valhalla wasn’t named that for nothing.


Highly addictive drama! With the fifth book in the Welcome to the Circus series we get Valhalla’s story and it had me hooked from start to finish. I loved Val and Felix and the drama surrounding them, but I did feel like there was a bit of a disconnect from the series with this book. We don’t get a lot of detailed backstory of the family, and there’s an event with one of her sisters that never gets developed as to what happened, so if you are only reading this book as a standalone, you’re going to be a bit lost. Overall, I love the angst LLV pours onto the page with every series she delivers, but think there could be more cohesiveness to support a more standalone deliverance.

I recommend this book as well as the rest of the series to anyone who enjoys a close knit family filled with drama and turmoil who stand by each other through thick and thin as each sibling finds their forever love.
