Leo’s Chance by Mia Sheridan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I waited a little while to read Leo’s point of view so that I could experience this story all over again. It seemed to the same to me. I did not feel like there was much more added to Leo’s side of the story. It just picked up right where Leo started. The flashbacks helped fill in some of the holes. I just had a hard time buying into the story of someone’s face changing so much and knowing you loved them so much that you would not just recognize them. If the love was as true and deep as the author wants you to believe then would the eyes have not been enough for her to recognize?
A companion (alternate POV) novel to the USA Today bestselling book, Leo. Does everyone deserve a second chance? Even someone who lies and deceives to get it? Do we all have a second chance coming? Even if we play a part in our own destruction? How hard would you fight to have a second chance at love? A second chance at life? Another chance to tell your own story? Every love story has two sides. Evie told hers. This time it’s Leo’s chance.

I have been told by a fellow book addict to read the books by Mia Sheridan on multiple occasions. I finally got around to getting the books in the Signs of Love series and this was the first one. As I started reading I found myself wondering why I waited to so long to read these books.
Leo is book one in the series. I feel it is the perfect introduction to the series. I am writing this after I have read all the books except Leo’s Chance. I really enjoyed Leo. There were some parts where I had to just let the obvious go, there were some instanced which just seemed too incredible, but once I overlooked those instances I realized the core story was really sweet.
I didn’t read Leo’s Chance right after I finished Leo because I wanted to wait a little bit before I read his point of view. I have noticed when I read the other POV right after the original book I do not have the same feelings for the book. I have read several books since Leo and I finally feel it is time for Leo’s Chance.
Evie and Leo met in foster care as children and formed a bond of friendship. As they grew, their bond turned to love, and they vowed to make a life together when they turned 18 and were no longer a part of the system. When Leo unexpectedly gets adopted as a teen and moves to another city, he promises Evie that he will contact her as soon as he gets there and come back for her in a few short years. She never hears from him again. Now eight years later, in spite of the odds, Evie has made a life for herself. She has a job. She has friends. She’s content. Then a man shows up out of the blue, claiming that her long lost love, Leo, sent him to check up on her. The attraction between them is undeniable. But should she trust this sexy stranger? Or is he keeping a secret about what his connection to Leo is really all about and why Leo disappeared all those years ago?
THIS IS A STANDALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY LEO. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
