My Rating: 5 Stars
When I read Leo I was blown away by the writing, the characters, the story... I loved every single thing about it. To say I have been eagerly awaiting Leo's Chance is a huge understatement. Then, when I was asked to be a part of the Blog Tour, I was over the moon excited. I just knew that Leo's Chance was going to be amazing, and it makes me so happy to say I was right. Leo's Chance is brilliant. We not only get our favorite scenes of Evie and Leo together from his point of view, but we learn so much more about Leo himself.
But the full details of Leo's past is not all we learn about him. Mia Sheridan wrote this book in a way to not only bring us those alternate perspective scenes, but she also managed to expand the original story. There is so much that was going on in the background of Leo, that we just never got to see from Evie's point of view.
A lot of Leo was from inside Evie's head, there are a lot of times that she and Leo were not together. You will be stunned to learn what was happening during all of those times, honestly it felt like a brand new book, there was just so much more to be told.
Everybody who knows me, knows that I cry at books. I cry happy tears, I cry sad tears, and quite a few times I cry ugly tears. I experienced all of those while reading Leo's Chance. This shows just how powerful Mia's writing is, and just how powerful this story is. We already know the story right? Why would we be affected by it again? Because it is written so beautifully.
We all know how damaged Leo is, we thought we understood where his hurt, anger, shame and guilt were coming from. Well, we knew the over all cause... but you just can't appreciate him and his story until you have seen it through his eyes. And it is not only the heartbreak that you feel for his past, but also the passion and love he has for Evie. His emotions are raw and unbridled. Honestly, I could go on and on... Everything just comes together so perfectly, and if you thought you loved Leo before, you will fall even more head over heels in love with him now.
So, again... if I can stress anything it would that this is not just an alternate point of view retelling. This is Leo's Story 100%. Even the scenes you already know from Evie's point of view feel fresh and new as Leo tells the story. And again, there are just so many new scenes that you never knew took place during the time frame of Leo.
There is also a new epilogue, written from Evie's perspective. This takes us into a nearer future than the epilogue that was at the end of Leo. So for those that were wanting a continuation, you do get a further glimpse into their future. I can not recommend Leo and Leo's Chance enough, I can easily say these are two of my favorite books.
