Shelves: my-book-babies
Writing this book, I pushed out of my comfort zone.
And I have no regrets.

Every word, every scene, is there for a reason—for the characters and the readers to experience them. To drive them toward that ending. You'll know what I mean.

This is an edgy New Adult novel—with soul and purpose.

About it:
Stunning club owner Leon keeps his world on a tight leash. He subdues his past by means of twisted sex, his martial arts, and his motorcycle. But when destiny throws him curveballs at the hands of a beaut

Thiiiiiiis boooook. So many feels! Hot, dangerous Leon + sweet, responsible Arriane + one sexy night = the beginning of an incredible romance. As usual, Sunniva Dee has done it again!

What happens when a one night stand with a sexy, dangerous man goes wrong? Arriane, employee at Smother nightclub, hooks up her boss, Leon in a moment of weakness. What the two of them never planned on was that this night would be the beginning an amazing journey.

Throughout the novel I had no idea what was coming ne

Leon is so hot, I mean this book is so great ;) Full review once released!

A great book keeps me glued to my seat until the end, and Leon's Way did just that! The characters made laugh, yell, and cry. A roller coaster of emotions filled with highs and lows, but so worth every minute it took to reach the finish line. Leon captured my interest from the beginning, and OMG was he hot!

I liked Leon in Pandora Wild Child. I just didn't like him with Pandora. I was really excited to read Leon's story and it rocked! It took me literally one chapter to fall in love with Leon. His story is dark, edgy, and gripping. It was sad, funny, and crazy at times. I couldn't put it down and to be honest I couldn't get enough. This series is awesome. I love it!! ...more

In this companion book to Pandora Wild Child, Sunniva Dee takes us into Leon's dark and dangerous past, brightened only by his potential future with the only girl he cannot break, Arriane. Leon's history threatens everything and everyone around him, and one decision could cost him everything. Sunniva really pushed the envelope on this book and it really pays off. I was on the edge of my seat during this entire novel. I can't wait to see what she writes next!! ...more

Having read Pandora Wild Child and meeting Leon, I was intrigued by his bad boy personality and would have liked to have learnt more about him. I was so pleased when I learnt that Leon's Way was being released.

Leon is the owner of two clubs and his business skills and the way he treats his employees are second to none. When it comes to his personal life it's a different story completely. He had a tough childhood upbringing and the psychological effects haunts him. He copes with his issues by ha

Leon has a specific taste.

He demands respect and likes things a certain way—his way. He prefers his girls damaged, because damaged is exactly what Leon is inside. For each girl he helps find herself, made stronger by his vehement attention, Leon closes off more and more of his heart. And once his girls are no longer on the same “broken” level as he is, they are no longer of use to him.

Until her.

It isn’t often Leon is unable to bend others to his compelling charm, so when it finally happens on Ne

Here I thought that Pandora was my favorite book of Sunniva's! Then she goes & changes my mind.. She has a habit of doing that with each book that she writes! Lol! This book, although 'tough', has so much heart!! Way to go, Sunniva, keep pushing that envelope & do what you do!! Love it! I can't wait for your next book.

Sunniva definitely did not disappoint with Leon's Way. I was hooked from the first page!!!
Arriane was perfect for Leon. She was so strong willed and definitely a strong female character. While she did have her flaws, she was able to be the woman he needed to help him in his dark t

DNF at 19%
I know 19% doesn't seem like a lot but I really did try. I just couldn't bring myself to like Leon, at all. He sought out broken girls and broke them harder and I just couldn't. Obviously he had some horrid back story that I hadn't read about yet but I just didn't think he could redeem himself.

Destiny is a funny thing.
It’s tempting to focus on the scalding chemistry between the title character and his loyal employee Arriane. To discuss how his hot, protective, devil-may-care attitude frustrates and attracts her responsible, calm presence. But that would be doing a disservice to the depth behind that swoon-worthy stare. There’s history there. Hidden secrets and suppressed pain that take this book from sizzling romance to a powerful story so many (too many) can relate to. Leon’s way of

Before I start on my thoughts, let’s just take a moment to look at the cover. Those eyes….sigh. I could just drown in those eyes. Such agony and deep suffering within the depths of those pretty blues. Makes a person just want to reach inside and give that sexy man a hug. You get the feeling that you are about to embark on an emotional roller coaster ride of emotions - and you would be correct. So, let’s give a big round of applause for the Cover Designer!

This book ended up to be a lot better than what I had imagined when I started it.
I wasn´t sure when I first started reading where it would take me.
Very often when I start reading a book I get this giddy feeling in the first few pages and I just know that I am going to really like it. I didn´t get that feeling in the first few pages of this book, but very soon it built up very nicely and just kept getting better and better.
This book has a very good story and goes into some hard issues

I just finished Leon's way, and I am pleasantly surprised - I absolutely loved it! My favorite book by Sunniva Dee has been Shattering Halos, but now I just adore this one! (And boy, are they different!)

Arria's exciting journey is fascinating to read, and most of Leon's mannerisms are so sweet, I love that he is such a complex character. Funny thing, as soon as I finished the last page I felt myself immediately considering "Should I start it again from the beginning right away?" And I kinda laug

Adrianne has loved Leon from afar for a long time now. She knows his moods and what he needs. She has watched him with these broken girls and knows she's not one of them. One night changes the course of both their lives. Leon has demons he's fighting, but he just can't let go. Adrianne love's him, but he has to find a way to bury his past before they can truly move forward. It's a bumpy road, and I was waiting for the other shoe to drop most of the book but there were only small diversions. The ...more

I devoured this book. The dialogue and characters were so realistic, I couldn't put it down.
A heart- wrenching, emotional read which also had some light hearted moments thanks to secondary characters.
A story about leaving the past behind and trying to move forward...will be reading more of Sunniva's books.

I've read a few Sunniva Dee books and they all bring something different. This is the second book in a series, but standalone which is good, because I didn't realise until the end that I was starting on book 2!

Arianne is conditioned to treat potential heartbreak as the ultimate evil. So she loves Leon—a heartbreak on gorgeous legs—from afar.

Leon is so broken, he goes only for broken girls, shatters them and moves on. But with his own personal demon on a deathbed, even his broken girls can’t smother his angst. On the night he reaches an all-time low, channeling his tormentor in a too-obvious way, Arianne takes the place of a broken girl in an effort to stop his descent. His angst is indeed smothered bu

Leon's Way 5 fabulous stars!

I was not expecting to love this book, after reading Pandora Wild Child (and loving it) I got a glimpse of Leon and I was sure I wasn't going to like him. Well let me tell you I was wrong, so so wrong that I even think I loved this book a little bit more than PWC. I even noted something about 20% in on my Kindle that said "I just fell in love with Leon." Now I'm not the type that has to love characters to lo
