A new person will enter your life in the early year, Leo. Look past any moments of frustration they might bring and laugh—this could be the start of a thriving friendship.

I absolutely LOVED Anyta Sunday's latest release, "Leo Loves Aries." It was full of snark, humor and loads of banter, which was right up my alley.

Theo and his sister, Leone, were finishing up their undergraduate degrees, both heartbroken after their latest love interests had fallen head-over-heels in love. With each other!

I know! WTF, right?

I ADORE Anyta Sunday, especially when she writes these delicious friends-to-lovers, slow burn stories! Let the sexual tension party begin!

This is a sexuality-discovery kinda story, and I'd describe the MC (Theo) as a pansexual, or someone that falls for the person, not the gender. First time gay experience stories are a HUGE weakness of mine, especially if they are done really, really well, and Anyta Sunday nailed this one!

Thank you Anyta Sunday for teaching me what love is....

Not to humanize myself but uhh I've smiled so much reading this book I might as well have been wearing pink plastic heart glasses on. I wish this otp was real and they get married on a faraway beach and pay for my flight out there just so I could toast their love from an open bar.

Anyway. I'm happy to report that slow burn romances are still the reason I struggle everyday.

Also, please do pick up this book whenever you need to feel uncommonl

This is just adorable.I've had it on my Kindle for a while but it wasn't until I saw a friend's status update that I decided to read it and once I started it,I couldn't put it down.
Theo....what can I say,I just loved that boy....completely clueless in the most endearing way.

This was a gem. Not a diamond, more Ruby Red. Hot and sizzling!

Leo Loves Aries was brilliant in its simplicity. The premise of a friends-to-lovers/hetero guy falling for a non-hetero has been done multiple times. What Anyta did however, was to infuse this with a well thought out plot, multi-dimensional characters, with prose that sparkled.

Heather K (dentist in my spare time)'s review says it all.

I loved Theo and Jamie! Yum!

This is an amazing best-friends-to-lovers story with a heaping scoop of sexual discovery and a side of family love.

Theo was so NOT in tune with his feelings, I wanted to smother him with a pillow. Repeatedly.

The connection between Theo and Jamie was obvious to everyone but Theo. Theo went from trying to set Jamie up with his sister to pretending they were merely BFFs-with-benefits.

All the love for the banter, quotes of the day, silly astrology predictions, slow burn, lingering glances, a

It's been a while since I wrote a novel, thank you pregnancy! Gah, that really, really knocked me out of it. I was one of those that felt dizzy, nauseous, and tired throughout. Fun times. (All WORTH it. Love my baby boy!)

It felt so, so great to get back into writing; and it felt particularly good to write Theo and Jamie's story. After all the horrific news of the year, I needed to put my energy toward something lighthearted and sweet. I needed to write this no-angst, lighthearted, clueless, does

I wasn't supposed to re-read this... I truly wasn't (I just re-read it for christ's sake), buuuuuut, I recommended this book to a friend and I couldn't help myself opening it. After that, it was a lost cause. I adore the characters, I adore the story, I adore the laughs, I adore the chemistry, I adore it all. I - with everything I am - hope that the author will give us a sequel for these two. One book isn't enough. I want more!

This was un-put-down-able. Seriously, I have only read a couple of shorts by Sunday, and I was hesitant to try the full-length (couldn't explain why), but I'm an official fan now.

Theo, and his twin sister, Leone, are living together and still dealing with the betrayal of their exes. Yes, their exes, not just one of them. Theo and Leone thought they'd each found the one they'd spend the rest of their lives with. Unfortunately, Samantha and Derek discovered they belonged with each

2.5 stars for the Audiobook

Theo was satisfied. He wanted to curl up and stay in bed with Jamie all day


-The story is so cute and fluffy and had me smiling.

-The chemistry was hot even with Theo being so clueless to the point i wanted to shake him and point him to the right direction i.e towards Jamie.

-The writing stellar and the slow burn is so well down.

The Audiobook was a huge miss for me. The narrator sounded so robotic, the only voice that i thin

No one writes a delicious slow burn romance like Anyta Sunday.

Honestly, there is not a single thing I would change about this book. That pretty much says it all.
Theo, Theo, Theo! What ever shall I do with you?

Leo Loves Aries was brilliantly done. Humorous, original, and the banter was nothing short of epic! I loved this story from beginning to end.

Theo Wallace and his twin sister Leone have been - unsuccessfully - trying to get over their last relationships. Their significant others decided they wanted to be with each other instead of with Theo and Leone! Needless to say, I didn't like them anytime they came into the story. Well, now, Theo and Leone hav

Loving this book took a huge weight off my chest. I'm so happy I loved it, because after being slightly disappointed in True Colors, I was really scared that Anyta Sunday was a one-hit wonder for me (yes, I'm talking about rock).

While I think rock was still better in a lot of ways (the writing, the conflict, plus it fed my love for geology sorrynotsorry), this one was pr

4.5 Stars!

This one had a lot of my favorite things in a book.

Great banter.
Great chemistry between the MCs.
Slow burn.
Likable side characters - loved Theo's mom.
Low angst.

Rounding down because Theo was a bit too clueless about his own feelings and I wish he'd figured it out a tad sooner. But the ending more than made up for it.

Highly recommend this one.

Actual Rating: 3.5 Stars. I really don't have much to say; this is a cute, but fairly typical romance.

It would be nice if just one romance novel could use the word "bisexual". Let my soul rest, for the love of god. It's one thing to have characters who haven't identified themselves yet, or characters who don't really use labels. But in romance like this? The lack of even mentioning bisexuality is a trend, and it's a problem.

I don’t know. It was really cute, but it had this feeling at points of
**Audio Review ***

Dreadful. DNF. Never heard of the narrator before, and certainly wouldn't buy anything of his in future. He is monotonous, and about as interesting to listen to as watching paint dry must be....I was COMPLETELY & UTTERLY underwhelmed. His Jamie sounds as though he has a stick up his pompous, and Theo is wooden...but not in a good way 😉.

I've been quite fair I think and listened to a quarter of it, but enough's enough. There is no way I can listen to another chapte

You know, I’ve given out the best boyfriend award to a very precious few, but I think it’s time to whip it out again and award this coveted prize to Jamie Cooper, because hot damn!! This guy?! Ah-may-zing. I kid you not. If anyone was going to change a seemingly straight Theo to the other side, it was going to be Jamie, and he did it with kindness, charm, confidence, and caring. Unf. I mean, seriously?? This guy is obviously a work of fiction, he was so freakin perfect.

Audio Review Update: 6/19: Audio is OUT!! I've learned a few things since buying and listening to the audio...
1: Anyta is pronounced Anita and not the jacked up way I was pronouncing it.
2. I'm still just as in love with the story as I was the first 4 times I've read it.
3. Sub-par narration didn't take the enjoyment out of the story for me. Let's talk about the narration by Rudy Sanda. His voice for Theo was the most "enjoyable" of the voices used. The one for Jamie grated on my ears and didn't

Sometimes you read a book, and it hits all the right spots. This book was sweet, funny and full of snarky banter, which made me giggle throughout the story.

Theo and Leone Wallace are twin siblings trying to get over the betrayal of their boyfriend and girlfriend that broke up with them and started dating each other. When their mother calls to discuss their latest horoscope, she insists that her Leo’s will be compatible with an Aries. When they receive their exes wedding invitation in the mail, t

Wow, I loved this one. There is a definitely GFY element here. Theo and his blind sister, Leone, live together at college. They need a third roommate. Theo invites his economics tutor, Jamie. At first, Theo is thinking of trying to hook up Jamie and Leone. It takes quite awhile for Theo to realize that Jamie is gay and the sparks that are flying in the house are between he and Jamie, not Jamie and Leone.

The tale is sweetly written and the characters are beautifully flushed out. Theo's mom gives

Books like this remind me of how much I love a slow burn, lighthearted, fluffy romances.

"The more time and emotional dollars you invest in a relationship, the more you inspire trust that encourages the other person to spend more of their own emotional dollars. In a positive outcome, this spending will lead to more emotional wealth. Or, translated, love."

I adore the soft boy funny Theo! Jamie, on the other hand, was fine. He's not a bad character but maybe I was just expecting something diff

I started this off with the audio and had to return it. The narrator's performance did not do justice to these amazing MCs.

I really, really enjoyed Theo and Jamie's relationship development. Theo's cluelessness was so endearing. What I loved the most was the lack of awkwardness, even after Theo was clued in to the fact that Jamie was gay and they shared their first kiss. I have to say it's one of the best friends to lover's stories I've had the pleasure of reading.

Holy shit guys, this was funny and cute as fuck. I literally just spent the last three hours sitting in front of my computer with a smile on my face. Literally the only possible explanation is that reading this book replaced my personality with someone else's because I, Emma Manos, never read contemporary romance but I enjoyed this SO MUCH.

The plot is pretty much like any other fluffy romance but somehow the characters were all really cool and not overly cheesy ??? also, the main character is bi

Leo loves Aries and now I love them as well because all the signs of love were there.......

I'm not a patient person, so normally the smouldering slow burn doesn't work for me, but Anyta Sunday made it worked. She kept me simmering away, but I knew that boiling point was going to come and be all bubbly and hot. She didn't let me was.
So why did the book work so well? For me, two things. Firstly, Leo and Jamie. Secondly, the banter, I just loved that banter (ok, technically that's 3 thin

This was a very cute "friends to lovers" story, that was low on angst and high on the "feel good" moments.

Theo and Leone are twin leo's living together. Now normally, I would say that a horoscope sign isn't very important info to have about a character, but in this really is :P

These twin Leo's are still trying to get over the hurt, of their exes running of together..
