Logan Whitmere, the handsome owner of Cirque des Miroirs, is full of red flags. Secretive. Commanding. Dangerous.
I know better than to trust him, but I’m desperate for a way out of my small town.
He offers me a job as the fortune teller.
What does Logan know that he isn’t telling me? He seems to want to protect me…from the performers. From himself. I fall for his possession. I’m afraid of his obsession.
There are secrets even the crystal ball won’t reveal.
When the truth is unveiled, I’m forced to confront my dark past.
Here is the potentially sensitive content that I observed while reading this story:
- Child abuse
- Death of a parent
- Domestic Abuse

Red Flags swallowed me whole! I was absolutely consumed by this story. The unique circus setting and captivating characters kept me interested and entertained! I loved all the reveals and cast and the SPICE! Logan can boss me around however he wants! This is a secret billionaire romance. There’s an age gap. It’s very angsty. It’s also forbidden because the romance is between the owner of Cirque de Miroirs and the person he hires as the new fortune teller fo the circus.
I loved Logan so much! He’s the tortured hero who’s possessive and bossy! I loved the quiet vicious way that he handled conflict and how he never allowed Sienna to feel bad about herself. Logan is aggressively empowering but he also kept his mouth shut if he felt like he was overstepping. I could not get over the high regard he held Sienna in!
Sienna! Oh, my heart broke for her! She struggles with many complicated factors in her home life including abuse and rumors from her hometown. As she works for Logan, she starts to hear more about this man and she realizes that she doesn’t know Logan that well. There is something about this man that may be a little bit dangerous because he seems to get his way a lot. However, he is the only person that truly sees her.. that makes her be honest with herself with him and it’s sexy!
This is book 1 of a trilogy, so be prepared for a cliffhanger at the end of this one! I can’t wait for the next book, White Lies! I need to know what happens next. I highly recommend this book to those who like spicy forbidden romances! Thank you so much to the author for an advanced copy of this book for review!
There are several open-door scenes in this book. Minimal innuendo throughout.
Setting / World / Universe
I loved the circus setting of this book. It was basically like its own city that stayed consistent throughout the book. Each attraction the main characters visit was very interesting and I think the Cirque de Miroirs is basically its own character. Loved this setting.

“I’m not going to pretend with you. We only have three more days in town. There isn’t time to pretend. I do have an ulterior motive for giving you that VIP ticket. It’s that I wanted to spend time with you. Whether that’s to talk or kiss. Or fuck. Whatever we do, it’ll be because you decide to give it to me. Understand?”
“I wanted to see you.”
“And what about what I want?”
“You want me… But you’re scared of it.”
“You’re a beautiful liar, Sienna… Maybe one day you’ll trust me with the truth.”
“There are some upsides to the terrible things humans do to each other. Like the way I learned to hide everything that I’m thinking. Like the way you learned to lash out at anything that comes close.”
“You have no idea, do you? How much I’d give you if you let me. How much I’d do for you. How far I’d go to bind you to me. You should get the fuck out of here while you still can.”
“There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for you, Sienna Mae. I think I’d even kill for you.”
“You’re part of the circus now, which means you belong to me. You’re mine. It means no one can make you do anything you don’t want to do.”
“I’ve been dreaming about you since I met you… I want you open and begging, sunset, but you aren’t ready for that. You aren’t ready for a damn thing.”
“Unfortunately, you’re already bound to me. I’m going to break you.”
“You’re beautiful, sunset… Light and dark at once. So goddamn hot I can only breathe you in and out, in and out, memorizing the scent of you. I’ll smell it every time the sun sets, every day for the rest of my life.”
