Leap of Faith Audio Review and Blog Tour Stop

Leap of Faith is a May - December slow burn at the Circus.  Sometimes all you need is a little push


About the Audio Book:

Running from his shattered gymnastics career, Charlie Avrill’s one hope for redemption is the strange and colourful world of the circus. His skills should make him a good fit for seasoned performer, Darius Lungo. But Darius won’t compromise his high stakes act for just anyone.

Still mourning the loss of his performance partner who unexpectedly abandoned the show, Darius’s heart can’t take another temporary filler. No matter how perfect Charlie might seem at first glance. But the circus is dying, and Darius owes his bosses a stellar act to sell.

Putting their differences aside to recreate the star attraction, Darius and Charlie grow closer with each rehearsal. But Charlie’s only in the ring for a one-night-only performance and the circus is due at its next stop—off the island and into Europe.

Can Charlie push aside his fears and take the leap of faith to change his entire life? And, if he does, will Darius still be there to catch him?

Leap of Faith is a standalone age-gap, enemies to lovers, mm romance where the twists and turns don’t only happen in the ring.

Laora's Review & Rating: Narration 4,5 , book 4,5 All round 4,5*

This book is a stand alone and is well written and paced with a sweet story about two men who are trying to find their way to their true self and each other.

Charlie Avril (22) fled to his mom and younger sister's home in Jersey when his dreams came crashing down. He is a gymnasics scholarship student his university at Loughborough University. However he does not want to tell his mom about his situation, so he hangs out with his childhood friend Josh (his unrequited crush from his youth) at his job in the local hotelbar. 
Darius Lungo (40), is a grumpy, cigar smoking trapeze acrobat who is still after twenty years not over being left by his trapeze partner. 
Darius is 'forced' by his Circus family to celebrate his birthday in a local bar.  and there he is intrigued by Charlie who reminds him ofhis trapeze partner. Charlie also has eyes for him, however they have an unfortunate contact.
Charlie is searching for work and finds a job at the circus,  not long after he is asked to join Darius in the trapeze. 
There is a little twist in the story which was kinda expected. This story has a hea

The narration by Piers is well done and makes the story even more pleasurable to listen to.

About the Author

Brought up in a relatively small town in Hertfordshire, C F White managed to do what most other residents try to do and fail—leave.

Studying at a West London university, she realised there was a whole city out there waiting to be discovered, so, much like Dick Whittington before her, she never made it back home and still endlessly search for the streets paved with gold, slowly coming to the realisation they’re mostly paved with chewing gum. And the odd bit of graffiti. And those little circles of yellow spray paint where the council point out the pot holes to someone who is supposedly meant to fix them instead of staring at them vacantly whilst holding a polystyrene cup of watered-down coffee.

Eventually she moved West to East along that vast District Line and settled for pie and mash, cockles and winkles and a bit of Knees Up Mother Brown to live in the East End of London; securing a job and creating a life, a home and a family.

After her second son was born with a rare disability, C F White’s life changed and it brought pen back to and paper after having written stories as a child but never had the confidence to show them to the world. Now, having embarked on this writing journey, C F White can’t stop. 

So strap in, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
