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)

“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 Leo

"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 a

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!!!

This book was far more enjoy for me than the original story. The prose felt sharper, the edit

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

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 when

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.

Sharon ∞❥ is an emotional book junkie ❥∞
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. Yes it is kind of the same story as the first one; (it was written in the heroine's POV) but seeing as I hadn't read the first one in years...this was a great reminder of the whole story in general.

"Why are you looking at me?"

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 scenes or

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

… “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

Neyse, fazla uzatmayacağım çünkü okuldan yeni geldim ve modum düşük. O yüzden şunu diyeyim, hayattaki en büyük hayalim ruh eşimin olması ki Leo ve Evie kendilerini çok küçük yaşlarda, yaşanılacak onca şeyin en başında buldular. Bu harika değil de ne? Evet lan çocukluk aşklar

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!!!!!!

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 tissue

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

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

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.

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.

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.

Sorry, but I cant get over that. Its just not plausible.

The other really big criticism I have with this book are the sex scenes - we really dont need that amount of detail Mia Sheridan!!!
