Ok so I think I'm going to do a joint review of both Leo and Leo's Chance, cuz I really think it should have been one book. Where to start.... Leo was a little bit of a let down for me. I saw all these great reviews and it had a really high rating so I went in thinking I was going to love it. And don't get me wrong I did like it but it wasn't enough for me. There were some pacing issues and grammatical errors, but not enough to draw me out of the story. And let's face it when was the last time you read a book with no mistakes in it?? But something was missing, as it turned out it was book two, Leo's POV. I know the author wanted it to be a big reveal (view spoiler) but come on didn't we all know that was coming? It wasn't the best kept secret and the first book would have greatly benefited from his POV. I know we where supposed to root for Leo but all I seem to do was wish that Evie would leave him, that was until book two. Having that second book really helped me forgive Leo and even though I knew how the story would end couldn't help rooting for him this time around. I also found that I liked being in Leo's head more than Evie's. Whether or not that was because it was the authors second book and her writing got better or if I liked that I just plain liked Leo more at that point I'm not sure. And I'm grateful for that second book, because without it I would have left Evie's story with a bad taste in my mouth. If like me you were left wanting after the first book, then you owe it to yourself to read the second installment. You'll be thankful that you did. And if you loved the first book and got all tingly after Leo's tease of a POV in the epilogue in book one you also owe it to yourself to read Leo's Chance.
It takes a lot of guts to put a part of yourself out to the world and that's what every author does when he/she writes a book. No one should have to suffer through just plain rude or hateful reviews of what may be something equivalent of their baby. While I may not like or enjoy a book I would never write anything to make an author think less of themselves just because I may have not like what they wrote. My opinion is just one of hopefully millions that have read their works and will differ greatly. My point in saying this is that I see a lot of author bashing going on and it makes me sad. It reminds me of bullies in school. Shouldn't we be past it by now? It's ok if you don't like something but there are was to expressing your opinion without belittling someone in order to do it. Ok I said my piece and I'll get off my milk create and put down my 'stop the hate stop the violence' sign.
Your gift with story telling Evie? It's not about you getting lost in your own mind, or living in a dreamland. It's about being able to rise above even the worst of situations. It's one of the reasons I've loved you every single day since I was eleven years old
We all know that the system is flawed when it comes to placing children in foster homes.
Sometimes the disadvantage gets taken advantaged by the people who were trusted to care shelter and love them. Some children and teenagers who grew up in an adoptive families setting fall off the system because the wrong person were given that position to care them. It’s such a vicious cycle. They were taken from an abusive home to be place in a more worst of situation.
Evie & Leo went through all these worst experienced. Leo’s Chance is a part 2 book. This is in Leo’s POV. I like this book a lot it explains more of what happened to him during those 8 years that they were separated. This book is about Hope, Kindness, Being able to rise above even in a worst of situation, that everyone deserves a second chance falling in-love to the fullest, that you’re worth fighting for. This is such a beautiful beautiful story.
Anyway, I had a DNF and felt like I wasted a whole weekend so I needed a pick me up - Leo sprang to mind as the one who could make it all better.
I knew the story of course. Leo and Evie meet as children in foster care and believe they have found their soul mates. When Leo is adopted and moves his swears to keep in touch and they will reunite and become one forever and ever.
Evie is crushed when Leo doesn't keep his promise.
Leo's Chance gives us what is going through his mind when he finds his true love again. We feel his turmoil and disgust at what happened to him as a child and the perfect love he feels for Evie.
A sweet, sweet book. Mia is totally ace.
