Until Leo

(Happily Ever Alpha World)

4.15  ·  Rating details ·  1,777 ratings  ·  257 reviews
Having been burned in the past, Leo wasn't sure he believed in the boom. Not even seeing the happily married Mayson couples had him convinced...until he met Carrie and felt it for himself.

Carrie wasn't looking for love when she crashed into the hot cop, but that's exactly what she found. Then his past reared its ugly head, and she found a strength she didn't know she had.

It's live!

The stories I've read so far in this Happily Ever Alpha Kindle World have been great and Until Leo was no exception. I have hoped that Leo would get a story way back when he was the hot cop in Until Nico (my personal fave) and having one of my all time favorite authors write it was awesome!

HERO~ Leo has been one character that I've been waiting for. Sexy, alpha, protective and an ovary popping single dad. He was amazing with his little girl, Lynn. What a daddy should be like. He was a
Mindy Lou's Book Review
Nothing makes me want to swoon faster than a single dad that takes care of his little girl! When Leo meets Carrie because he is taking a daddy/daughter class that teaches the dads how to fix up their little girls hair, well...I was done for and so was Carrie.

I really don't know what it is about men with kids but I love these kind of stories. Leo hit all the buttons for a great alpha Hero. On top of being a wonderful dad to little Lynn, his pursuit of Carrie was just as appealing. He knew the min
I absolutely loved Leo! As an all alpha hero, hot cop to boot, the moment he lays eyes on Carrie he felt the boom he’d only heard about. And from that instant he was all in. Add the fact that his baby girl, yep Leo’s a single dad to a little girl (squeee!), is as taken with Carrie as he is and you’ve the makings for a perfect little romance.

This is a short little novella that delivered a whopping punch! Who doesn’t love some insta-love when done right? And Rochelle Paige certainly did it right.

My first Happily Ever Alpha book and I loved it! I've read Until series years ago and though I can't remember much, I remember to really like the series and of course, 'the boom'.

The story is about Leo and Carrie.

He's the hot cop, single dad from Until Nico. She's the one to teach at the daddy daughter hair class.

I loved that his daughter, Lynn was not just mentioned in the book. I loved their father-daughter time. Also Carrie's time with them. Lynn's so adorable! I had so much fun read

I've been reading a few of these HAPPILY EVER ALPHA books over the past week. None of them have inspired me to pull out my pimp it up review style...sigh.


This one was pretty sweet until we got near the end and I had to suffer through yet ANOTHER over the top cartoon villain ex. Not quite as idiotic as the crazy OW loon is Until Susan, but yours truly is beyond tired of every ex of the hero in romance books being a psychopath.

Carrie and leo

What a great sexy book. I loved how Leo was an alpha male and a sexy cop. Carrie was new in town. They bumped into each other and that was that. Kris daughter Lynn was adorable.

Seriously awesome. I feel like I am gushing all over this series. But it has been such a treat to read these stories.

I loved that Leo found his BOOM! He so deserved it. And I loved the concept of a Daddy/Daughter hair styling class! Although I can say from experience that Mommy/Daughter classes would not be bad either!

Carrie was the sweet Leo deserved. Another fun read.

Leo, Carrie and the plot moppet.
My mind just went blank on what the plot was, even though I read it just a couple days ago...
Oh that's right, there was no plot.

They meet, insta boom, bada bing bada boom, cute shit from unrealistic 5 year old.

His nasty cartoonish ex who conveniently creates her own doom.

The end.
Safety is good (view spoiler)

Awww... This was the most perfect single dad story!

I can't resist a good single dad, and like Carrie describes herself, Leo was the perfect, panty-melting, ovaries-exploding daddy! Impossible to resist!

“Those panties that’d just about melted out in the parking lot? They were joined by my ovaries that went boom at the sight of those muscular arms lifting up a dainty girl with long, dark hair and blue eyes that were a perfect match for the hot cop’s.”

Rochelle Paige gave us in Until Leo the perfect

This is going to wrap up my trip down the Until series; I can only take so much of “Your mine, now give me your eyes, Babe” 😂 I haven’t read any of these novellas from the Happily Ever After Kindle World, but stumbled upon this when I was finishing my re-read of Until Nico. We met Leo in Until Nico, when he responded to Sophie’s assault. (he was the cop) We later learn that he caught his fiancé sleeping with her HS sweetheart, and split. This one is really short (88 pgs.) and the length doesn’t ...more
I love Leo!!!

Leo, who we were introduced to in Until Nico, fianay gets his book and his Boom! Leo and Carrie crash into each other outside the school where Leo's 5 year old goes to kindergarten. Carrie is there to teach an after school class for single dads to learn how to do their daughter's hair - put it in a ponytail, braid it, etc. Carrie teaches this class because her dad was a single dad and had to learn how to do this and Carrie wants to pay it forward.

Great story, well written, likeable
Rochelle Paige has been a favorite author of mine since her debut novel, Push the Envelope (currently free as of 4/1/18). Every successive book has met or exceeded my expectations, and Until Leo is at the top of the list.

Despite seeing the clear and instant love and devotion between Nico and Sophie every day, Leo doubts Nico’s claims of the infamous boom. At the very least, if it was true, after the mistakes he made in choosing a woman the first time, he’s too weary to believe he could b

Best novella I've read yet. This must have been written in correlation to Aurora Rose Reynolds, because two of her characters were in this book. I'm so glad I discovered this little alpha series.

Leo - oh Leo. I just adored him. I'm a sucker for a single dad trope, and this one did not disappoint. He meets Carrie, who is teaching single dads a class on how to do their daughters hair and he feels the "boom" (also an ARR thing). Their relationship moves at lightning speed. His ex was a real bitch,

Short, sweet and oh so sexy:) Absolutely LOVED Leo and Carrie!!!!!! Only wished it would have been longer!
Leo has not met a woman he has interested in since his ex betrayed him. Now a single dad, his daughter is his everything and when he signs up for a class to teach him how to do her hair. He sees Carrie and is hit with a feeling he has never had before. Can a man who was burned badly take another chance on love?

Short and sweet. I liked this one, thought the premise was unique. Another great addition to the Happily Ever Alpha series.

Absolutely loved this story!!

When I realised Leo from Until Nico's book was getting a story I was so excited. I loved his character and wanted him to get his BOOM!! HE gets that and more with Carrie.

Hot Cop ✅
Single Dad ✅
Cute daughter ✅
Sweet and funny heroine ✅

This one's the perfect blend of sweet, heat and laughs. Definitely recommend if you're looking for a great novella about a single hot Cop dad. It's just what I needed.

I received an arc of this book.

Great story. Great writing. Loved it. Love when they are together the whole way through. Little ow drama, but it was over quickly and didn't cause any relationship problems. Short and sweet.

Cute premise-woman teaches dads how to do hair
Characters were okay-not super well developed but I think thats common for novellas. Enjoyable and quick read (maybe 35 min)

I loved "Until Leo" so much! <3 Leo is such a great daddy to his little girl, Lynn and she's his first priority apart from his job as a cop; to serve and protect... until he meets Carrie ;)

He was hit out of nowhere by how Carrie makes him feel and he knew that she was special and every time he spent with her, made him realize that she was his BOOM... the BOOM, he's always heard talked about by the Maysons' (since Nico's his partner at police department) and now he knows that's real and nothing

Here is another fabulous read in the ARR Kindle World Happily Ever Alpha ---- Until Leo by Rochelle Paige. Leo meets Carrie because he is taking a daddy/daughter class that teaches the dads how to do their daughters hair. I was so happy to read Leo from Until Nico was getting his own story. I really loved his character in Until Nico and OMG Rochelle wrote him just perfectly in his novella. I fell totally head over heels in love with him. Its like Rochelle was channeling ARR while writing this bo

This is my first book by Rochelle Paige. It was a nice little taste of her and her writing style.
I really liked the book...these kindle world novellas are too short for me though! I'm always left wanting more!
I felt that some of the meat to the story/their relationship was missing due to the short length but you can't really help it with these things.
I'm looking forward to trying more from this author!

I so loved this one it gives a girl with a sexy hot cop dream come true.
Leo is one hot cop and Carrie is sweet, girly, and together they have the "BOOM." Leo also has a 6 year old daughter that is adorable.
But along with that there is some just enough suspense also.

Great story and the characters are oh so good together.

Until Leo was a fun and fast read. Sexy single dad, Leo, and sassy woman, Carrie, meet when she does a class for dads. The two BOOM.

I loved Leo, Cassie, and Lynn, Leo's daughter. The three of them are so sweet together. While Leo and Cassie click, Cassie and Lynn have a special connection as well. Until Leo is a quick novella, with a lot packed between the covers. The characters are interesting, and the plot is adorable, with one of favorite meet-cutes ever!

4.5 Star review.

I absolutely adore reading - always have and always will. My friends growing up used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.
