Review: RINGMASTER by Brianna Hale


Ringmaster by Brianna Hale
Genre: contemporary romance
Publisher: self published
Publication Date: May 13, 2020
Rating: ★★★★✰

*This story contains triggers that might be upsetting to readers.

I haven’t read a good book with a travelling circus in a long time and boy this just ticked off all my boxes.

It’s not always easy to write an age gap romance, but Brianna Hale always does it with such flourish and talent that I can’t help but fall in love. The reason I absolutely adored this story was because of the genuine connection between the protagonists. It was more about love than lust between these two.

Ryah is the purest soul ever and deserves the whole world. I adore her strength, her spirit and the fact that she never lost her reason to love. My girl came to slay, and SHE DID IT SO GOOD!!!

Cale is just the type of man you make a life with. My heart was breaking for him, but I just knew he’d be perfect for Ryah.

This story was very different and just so wholesome! I always read Brianna’s books in a mad rush and this was so different. It’s always a pleasure to lose yourself in one of her beautiful stories.

4 Stars!

Cale has the circus in his blood. As ringmaster and owner of Meriful’s Traveling Circus, his world is the arena, the spectacle and the heat of the spotlight. He looks out for his ragtag troupe of performers as if they’re his family, because after tragedy struck, they are.

Ryah’s been battered and bruised by life and is ready to give up. Then Cale finds her, and she runs away to join Meriful’s Traveling Circus and becomes the horseback acrobatics star she’s always dreamed of being.

What ultimately calls to her is Cale’s dangerous knife-throwing act, and the thrill of putting her life in his hands. Soon, she doesn’t want to be just part of his act. Cale’s doing his best to resist the fragile eighteen-year-old. He’s the ringmaster, but lately he’s been wondering… Who’s running rings around who?
