Review: Leo’s ChanceLeo


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.

Kyland by Mia Sheridan

Kyland is the last of the Sign of Love series which I have read. True to Mia Sheridan’s style it pulled at my heart strings. The love story is just as endearing as the rest of the books in this series. The only thing I did not like about it is that it ended to soon. I think there was room for more development of character and feelings. I could be wrong, it could be because the other books were longer and more descriptive, this just seemed shorter. Not that it seeming shorter took away from the greatness of the story, it just could have been more.

Dirt poor. Hillbilly. Backwoods hick. Mountain folk.

Tenleigh Falyn struggles each day to survive in a small, poverty-stricken, coal mining town where she lives with her sister and mentally ill mother. Her dream of winning the college scholarship given to one student by the local coal company and escaping the harshness of her life, keeps her going.

Kyland Barrett lives in the hills, too, and has worked tirelessly–through near starvation, through deep loneliness, against all odds–to win the Tyton Coal Scholarship and leave the town that is full of so much pain.

They’re both determined not to form any attachments, but one moment changes everything. What happens when only one person gets to win? When only one person gets to leave? And what happens to the one left behind?

Kyland is a story of desperation and hope, loss and sacrifice, pain and forgiveness, but ultimately, a story of deep and unending love.

THIS IS A STANDALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY TAURUS. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Finding Eden by Mia Sheridan

Finding Eden is the continuation, and conclusion, to Becoming Calder.

When the world as you know it has ended, when all that you love has been washed away, where do you find strength?

When the new world you’ve stepped into is as isolating as the last, when your heart is broken, and your future is unclear, where do you find hope?

Finding Eden is a story of strength, discovery, forgiveness, and undying love. It is about believing in your destiny and following the path that leads to peace.

THIS IS THE SECOND PART, AND CONCLUSION, IN A TWO-PART SIGN OF LOVE SERIES INSPIRED BY AQUARIUS (BECOMING CALDER SHOULD BE READ FIRST). New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and graphic sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18

Becoming Calder by Mia Sheridan

Becoming Calder blew my mind! It has been a while since I was overly WOW’d by a book. I did not read the synopsis or any reviews of the book before I started reading. I just loved Leo, Stinger, and Archer’s Voice so much I new this would not disappoint. It took the series to a whole new level. I finished this book in a day because I could not put it down. And then I found out there is a book 2!

This is a book you MUST READ.

Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan

Archer’s Voice has got to be one of the sweetest books I have ever read. My friend has been telling me to read this book, I can’t remember how many times. Finally I started reading the series because I wanted to get to Archer’s Voice. I want to slap myself for waiting so long to read it and I want to high five myself for finally reading it.

The story is just so sweet. How can you hear so much without a word being said? That is exactly what happens in this beautiful book. I can not think of one person who I recommended this book to read not liking it.

When Bree Prescott arrives in the sleepy, lakeside town of Pelion, Maine, she hopes against hope that this is the place where she will finally find the peace she so desperately seeks. On her first day there, her life collides with Archer Hale, an isolated man who holds a secret agony of his own. A man no one else sees.

Archer’s Voice is the story of a woman chained to the memory of one horrifying night and the man whose love is the key to her freedom. It is the story of a silent man who lives with an excruciating wound and the woman who helps him find his voice. It is the story of suffering, fate, and the transformative power of love.

THIS IS A STANDALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY SAGITTARIUS. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Stinger by Mia Sheridan

Stinger is the second of the Signs of Love series and it just keeps getting better. Sweet and funny is what I thought of this book. From when Grace and Carson meet til the very end it is a wonderful beautiful story of love and loss.

Stinger-Cover-430x687

Grace Hamilton was the girl with a plan. She knew exactly where her life was going and prided herself on always achieving her goals. It was who she was, and how she lived her life. She never stepped outside the lines, and never considered what she might desire and whom she was actually trying so hard to please. Until him . . .

Carson Stinger was a man who didn’t play by any rules except his own. Working in the adult entertainment industry, he didn’t care what others thought, and took each day as it came, no direction, no plan. He knew what women wanted from him and believed it was all he had to offer. Until her . . .

When circumstances forced them to spend several hours together, they walked away changed. But for two people who never should have meshed, overcoming the reality of their vastly different lives wasn’t possible. At least not yet . . .

THIS IS A STANDALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY SCORPIO. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Leo by Mia Sheridan

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.
