1. The hero "met" the heroine by stalking her. This wasn't even necessary to the plot line and it just made me creeped out by the hero.
2. The storyline is EXTREMELY predictable. I'm betting most of you knew the "twist"/outcome just by reading the description. I know I did.
3. Basically the entire story is the hero lying to the heroine, making up an excuse, the heroine saying "oh I'm never going to forgive him and fall for this again" AND THEN SHE DOES. And repeat. The heroine has no backbone whatsoever. It drove me insane.
4. Instalove. I know one 5-star reviewer is trying to claim that (spoiler???) because the hero and heroine knew each other from before and were in love from before, it wasn't instalove. But the heroine didn't know this when she fell in instalove with the "new" hero. So yes, it is still considered instalove. There was no connection whatsoever between the modern-day characters.
5. The heroine never had sex because she was "saving" (blah) herself for her true love. While her true love was out having sex with a multitude of women. Yay, double standards that also appear in 99% of romance books?
6. Because of the above points I really wasn't rooting for the hero and heroine to get together. Which is a must for me to love a romance book.
So yeah, I was disappointed with this one.
“I've heard people say they lose themselves in a kiss, but it was like we found ourselves the second our lips met. It was like he took me apart and put me back together with that kiss.” ― Mia Sheridan, Leo
“And the thing about falling in love is that no matter where you are when it happens, you can't help but to color those moments with beauty, even if you're in a location of ugliness. He made what would have been a place of nightmares into a place to dream.” ― Mia Sheridan, Leo
“Maybe I’m an open book, or maybe love is like a magnifying glass straight into the souls of those who own your heart.”
― Mia Sheridan, Leo
Recently, I listened to my first Mia Sheridan read — Archer's Voice — and decided I had to read more of her work. So I decided to grab her first book Leo. Like Archer's Voice, it was beautifully written, with well fleshed out characters. The story alternated between the past – Evie and Leo, and present – Evie and Jake, as I learned why Evie was so broken and quiet, and why she seemed alone in the world with only a few close people in her life.
I enjoyed seeing the relationship develop between Evie and Leo. They began as two kids in foster care and grew close at such a young age. They both had been through hard times, but were able to open up to one another and would protect the other with everything they had. It was sweet to see them together, but sad when they parted, and I just wanted a HEA for them.
The relationship between Evie and Jake grew gradually, as Evie finally let someone new into her life. She was heartbroken after losing her best friend so many years ago. She slowly opened up to Jake, but it irked me that Jake was holding so much back from Evie. I kind of figured out what was happening, but it was still a bit of a surprise when it was all revealed. I kind of don't know how it was missed, but it was explained away throughout the story. If you look past it, and take on the explanations, it really is a beautiful read.
The narration was done well by Maxine Mitchell and Joe Arden (epilogue). I enjoyed Maxine's voice, as she told 98% of the book, and I could feel the emotion and passion in her voice. This was another fantastic read by Mia Sheridan; it was gritty, intense and sweet, and I can overlook the part that I found a bit unbelievable, to enjoy the book as a whole. I'm continuing to enjoy my Mia Sheridan experience; bring on the next book!
