In Leo, the author brings you back in time through stories to when the two main characters were young. These stories are important to both characters as individuals and to their relationship. It's is very rare for me to want to read a book that is simply a change in POV but this book was definitely worth it. I can't imagine not getting the benefit of both sides. Hope this helps and that you enjoy one, or both, whichever you decide. (less)

"Why are you looking at me?" ...
"Because I like your face."

Leo (A Sign of Love #1) was one of the best books I've read this year. It was a complete story start to finish that told a beautiful, emotional love story with a twist. The story was told primarily from the heroine's perspective though and despite it reading very fluidly as a stand alone romance with a happy ending, we didn't see any of the hero's POV. So this book, Leo's Chance, gives that story. It is not a sequel and it is not

“We all deserve a second chance, don’t we?”
Leo’s Chance is essentially ‘Leo’ from the male pov... I know, I know, we’ve been getting a lot of these lately. This was actually BETTER for me than the original. There was so much I needed to know from Leo- so it really helped getting Leo’s side of things. And the ending... there is a nice extra scene or two from Evie’s pov!

If you haven’t read Leo, and you are planning on reading Leo- you might want to skip this review. In

Even though this book was a retelling of 'Leo' from Leo's perspective, I found it to be highly enjoyable. Let's face it, if you've read 'Leo', then you know that these two had enough chemistry to fill several books! Reading Leo's version of events didn't feel redundant, like many alternate POV books do.

Hearing more details about exactly what he went through in his years apart from Evie was enlightening. I felt like the extra details that were provided in this book really helped complete the pic

Kudos to Mia Sheridon for bring to life Leo's Chance, Leo's POV of the story Leo, in a manner that was amazingly fresh, unique, and insightful. Not once did I feel the author simply regurgitated the dialogue and narrative from Leo. In fact, I had to remind myself that this wasn't a new storyline but the same one only told from a different perspective. How UNUSUAL and AMAZING is that!!!

It is hard for me to write a review for this book because if you haven't read the first book Leo, I really do not want to spoil it for you.

First I need to say that I am a sucker for male POV in any book, especially if the whole book is his POV!

I loved the first book and I really loved this one.
I love books about second chances, about traumatized pasts.
I love when main hero is keeping secrets, and they make him insecure. I also love wh

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to meet Leo and Evie's love story in Mia Sheridan's Leo. I loved every word of it so I wanted to read this book as well. I waited a little bit because I was afraid to read the same book again. However, I have to say that Mia Sheridan rocks because she is able to tell the same love story, from a different POV and still make you fall in love again with it.

The main question regarding this book being from Leo's POV is whether or not it's a rehash of the original story. And my answer would be yes...and no.

Yes, because there is a lot of rehashing with the exact, same dialog. And no - because it's so much more.

A lot happened to Leo that couldn't be explained in the first book. I think even if M.S. had written Leo as a dual POV, it wouldn't have had enough time to do him justice. There's just something enchanting about reading a story while getting t

Well, I finally (after two years) sat down and read this one! I am very glad that I did and am kicking myself in the butt as to why I waited so long for it! Actually, I am kind of patting myself on the back as to waiting, and the reason is that this book is in Leo's POV.

Emotions came slamming back, making it feel like it was only yesterday that I had kissed her on our roof, and told her to wait for me and that I would wait for her, come for her, love her forever. But I had failed.

With a name like Leo ~ I just wanted my typical alpha/caveman/more wild animal to come out. I was just breezing along and I realized that i was at 70 % in the book and I still wanted a lot to happen !!!! Grrrrrrr

Evie and Leo's story is heartwarming and beautifully written and I really enjoyed reading Leo's side of it. But I think I would have enjoyed it even more if I would have postponed reading it a while longer, because it hasn't been that long since I've read Leo (Sign of Love, #1) by Mia Sheridan and I already knew pretty much everything that was going to happen. Still, I always enjoy reading a male POV, even if there aren't that many new scen

… “My lion tamer, my Evie, my love.”

Leo’s Chance is a follow up to Leo and while I loved the first book, I’m so glad to get Leo’s perspective! It grabbed me from the get go and is so much more than what I initially thought. I became totally immersed and didn’t want to stop until finished.

Experiencing this romance through Leo’s voice conveyed a deeper, more emotional aspect to his and Evie’s relationship. Both have endured a painful past while living in foster care and they

LOVE Leo sooooo much!!!! Seeing his side of the story was awesome and swoony and everything I wanted it to be. Definitely my favorite of the two. I recommend these books and I hope to get them on paperback soon. The covers are HOT HOT HOT and plus I need Leo's book on my shelf. :)

Great book, Mia!

WOW!!!! This cover is HOT!!! Oh Leo, how I love thee!!!! Can't wait for this book!!!!! It's in his POV and oh how I'm salivating at the mouth for this!!! SQUEE!!!!!!

She walks around to my front now and takes my chin in her shaking hand, lifting my face so that I’m forced to look into her pain-filled eyes.

"Why are you looking at me?" she asks, void of any expression in her voice, but her eyes wild with panic.

My eyes search hers for long seconds, looking for anything resembling love or understanding, but finding none.

I know what she wants from me though and so I give it to her. "Because I like your face."

This was a good story, but you absolutely must read Leo first or you will have no idea what is going on. I read it several months before reading this one and I wish I had read them back to back. I think I would have enjoyed this one more because I couldn't remember all the details from Leo. Of course this is the story of Leo and Evie from Leo's POV. In my opinion it is much sadder than the first book because you know all the whys behind their separation from the beginning. I enjoyed

Finished "Leo's Chance" 3 days ago and I still get misty when I think about this book. It was beautifully written. This is a very emotional story about two children, who are lost souls, that share an innocent love for one another. Their paths in life separate them only to reunite and fall in love once again.

Props to Mia Sheridan for doing what other popular authors have failed. She has successfully re-told a story from an alternate POV in a way that is refreshing & new. Break out the tissues fo

This book is a companion novel to Leo – it’s essentially the same story, but from the hero perspective. I admit that when this book came out, I wasn’t all that excited to read it. I was happy with Leo and didn’t feel like I needed an additional story, but I picked this one up on a whim, and OMG, I loved it! Maybe even more than the first!

The storyline of Leo has a twist to it, and in this book the expectation is that you know that twist right from the beginning, so make sure you have re

This book is really good, but I enjoyed Leo way more :( ..
I think the reason I liked Leo more was because I read this book just a couple of days after reading Leo and it felt like I was re-reading Leo, therefore I got bored at some points..
So I believe if I have read it after a long time from now, I would have enjoyed it more :( 💔..
I loved that Sea snail story he told her, it had so many meanings❤..
At first, I wanted to read this book before Leo.. But, now that I have read it, I think it

Gitte: So, how excited were we Jenny, to finally get to hear Leo’s voice on what happened to him; the strength of his feelings, his emotions and life during the missing years. Also, his reaction when he sees Evie again eight years later. It truly was an emotional and heart-breaking journey.

Leo’s Chance – Mia Sheridan

5 stars!!

Just a reminder that this is Leo (Mia’s first book in this series) told from Leo’s POV, so therefore you need to have read this first for this book to have any meaning. Leo was always going to be a hard act to follow as it was a gorgeous book, but Mia outdid herself with this one. I always thought it would be extremely difficult for a woman to write a man’s POV and some authors have tried and miserably failed, but this author is not one of them.

still I cant believe how she cant recognised him.

second, i cant believe why he was not jealous of himself. he should have been jealous of himself. he should think himself as "she just forgot about me and now making sex with me and loving me. i hate myself, i hate him and i hate her." or something like that. he should have been jealous of not-being-Leo but being-Jake.

This is what I needed all along. I was dying for Leo’s POV more, and I actually loved this one more than Leo. You have to read Leo first before you read Leo’s Chance due to all kinds of spoilers that really make the book! Two friends that grow up in Foster care, and pledge their love for each other sealing it with a kiss...vowing to wait for each other. Fast forward 8 years! What in the world has happened.

Leo's Chance is Leo's story told from his POV. It might seem redundant and although there were definitely areas that were, there was also enough new stuff and revelations added in that prevented boring you out of reading the same book twice.

I loved "Leo's Chance"!!!!
Mia Sheridan has delivered another winner.
"Leo" was an incredible story told in the voice of Evie.
I loved that story so much and was so excited when I heard we'd get this story in Leo's POV.
Sometimes when an author tries to retell a story in the other leading character's POV, it comes out sort of lacking.
This was not the case with "Leo's Chance"
I feel like it made the story "whole"
I loved Leo in the first book, and now I'm 100% gaga for him.
