Hers & His
Leo by Mia Sheridan
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 he 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?
Leo's Chance by Mia Sheridan
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
Rate & take (for both)
Heat Index 1 ☼
The books above are are number 1 and 2 in the Sign of Love series. I have seen that there is a third book planned and I am very curious about what's to come since the combination of these two sewed up everything very nicely for Leo and Evie. Guess we'll have to wait on that.
Now for my review...I liked both these books, the story in Leo is from Evie's point of view and in Leo's Chance we get the male side of the story. The only thing that frustrated me and which often does with this kind of dual perspective, is that 80% of book two we learn nothing new. I feel that if you are going to take on another book make it as near to an original as you can while giving people just enough connection back to the first story to follow along the time line. O.k. that was it for my rant. The 20% of Leo's Chance that was new was really good stuff and I am glad I got a chance to read it. It gave me so much more depth and insight into the story.
So, as you can see I gave both of these books 4 skulls. I think they are worth a read. If pressed and someone said they only had time for one of the books, I would suggest Leo's Choice for the reasons I mentioned above.
