Our Review

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.

“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, love her forever. But I had failed.”

I loved Leo already but this instalment just made me love him even more. Yes a lot of the story is repeated from Leo’s POV which surprised me slightly.  However, we do get an insight, through flashbacks, into his life with his adoptive parents, his struggles and how he faced them with the help of the amazing Dr. Fox.

And wow the epilogue told by Evie rocked, I cried! Second chance love is always sweet though isn’t it…?

The moment they meet again….in his voice.  I felt every single word as he struggled on the inside; the moment so big and so touching. So overwhelming.

“My heart starts beating faster. I can’t mess this up. I’ve come so far and now the only girl I’ve ever loved is right in front of me. And she might hate my fucking guts.”

If there was ever any doubt in book #1 about Leo’s love for Evie, then hearing his voice express just  how deep his love for her runs, and has done, since they were kids….Well….the strength of his emotions are so intense and real they’ll make your heart melt.

“My Evie, my heart, my savior. My lion tamer.”

“You are my dream.”

“My Evie. So sweet. My Evie. Mine.”

I do love Mia’s writing style, it’s flawless and sweeps you up and carries you through the story in an addictive flow. I want to stress though that you do need to read Leo first before moving onto Leo’s Chance.

“I choose you. I choose you, Leo. Always.”

What did you think Jenny?

Jenny: Gitte, we were certainly over the moon when we heard this book was in the works. I was so looking forward to hearing from Leo himself and was hoping he would fill in the missing blanks from Evie’s story and Mia Sheridan didn’t disappoint in that regard. This author made us feel everything  Leo went through.

“I didn’t know it was possible to hold your breath for eight years, but apparently, it is.”

Leo’s voice certainly exposed the pain, loss and heartache he endured in those missing years and you really did get to experience the despair he felt over leaving Evie. It was beautifully handled and I devoured every moment.

Their first meeting. I held my breath. Even though I knew what to expect, that first meeting just took my breath away.  I felt the yearning, the want in Leo’s voice as he restrained himself from being close to Evie.

“After years and years of pining  for her so intensely, she was right in front of me, and yet she was still a thousand miles away.”

Whilst yes, I did find a few of the interactions a bit repetitive from the previous book, there was plenty of substance in Leo’s Chance to allow the reader experience a new journey of sorts.

The scenes between Leo and Evie, whilst we did know what to expect, nonetheless they felt new and raw hearing them from Leo’s perspective.  It did bring a new level of emotion to the story that’s for sure. Did it still knock you for six Gitte despite knowing what the reveals would be?

“It’s as if all my emotions for her are in living color now and coursing through my body at light speed. I’m home.”

Gitte:  I have to say that even though I knew the ‘reveals’ and twists from book #1, many of them have stayed with me so they still had such an impact. The scene I was most waiting for was ‘the tattoo scene’, I wanted to know how, why and what Leo felt and I inhaled every word. To me, this is one of the most emotional and poignant moment from their time apart.

“And as the needle plunged in and out of my skin, I relished the pain. I deserved the pain. The physical pain made the emotional agony take a backseat and I finally felt a peace that day that I hadn’t felt in a long time.”

The ‘Who do you hate?’ scene with Dr. Fox blew my mind; I got goose bumps and felt every bit of the emotion that literally rolled off the pages.  It was utterly heart-breaking and incredibly tense and emotional.

“We all deserve a second chance, don’t we?”

“You’re worth fighting for.”

Leo’s Chance truly was a powerful, raw and heart breaking ride yet the hope, love and passion shone through it.

“Despite all the pain that we had endured to be where we are, in the end, love won.”

Jenny:  The scenes with Dr Fox were so insightful, so powerful and so heartbreaking. This was written extremely well  allowed to experience so much of what made Leo tick. Oh Gitte, the “who do you hate?” scene. My god, every word and every emotion was felt completely in that scene and seemed to come from somewhere so deep.  Honestly, I held my breath and had to have a moment. One of the most powerful and devastating scenes I’ve read. That scene absolutely packed a punch and the feelings it solicited within me were incomparable.

“She is my air, my reason for existence, the only thing that matters to me in this life or any other.”

Yes, Leo’s Chance did contain a bit of repetition from Leo but it most certainly did not drag this book down at all as the flashbacks we got from Leo through past experiences and the raw emotion felt from him when he met up with Evie, together with the intensity of his feelings managed to bring the reader something new in this very moving account of Leo’s life.

“..the risk of looking like a fool is a hell of a lot better than living with regret.”

This book is a must for readers who loved Leo.

“That look will forever be etched into my soul. That is the look of my Evie surviving.”
