Evie and Leo met in foster care as children and formed a bond of friendship. As they grew, their bond turned to love, and they vowed to make a life together when they turned 18 and were no longer a part of the system.
When Leo unexpectedly gets adopted as a teen and moves to another city, he promises Evie that he will contact her as soon as he gets there and come back for her in a few short years. She never hears from him again.
Now eight years later, in spite of the odds, Evie has made a life for herself. She has a job. She has friends. She's content. Then a man shows up out of the blue, claiming that her long lost love, Leo, sent him to check up on her. The attraction between them is undeniable. But, should she trust this sexy stranger? Or is he keeping a secret about what his connection to Leo is really all about and why Leo disappeared all those years ago?
THIS IS A STANDALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY LEO. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
Cover: Simple but for some reason I'm just drawn to it.
I read Archer's Voice by Mia Sheridan last year, and it instantly became a favourite. Then earlier this year I picked up Stinger. I enjoyed it- but ti didn't quite reach Archer's Voice.
So I decided to pick up Leo (I had already decided after reading Archer's Voice that I needed to read everything Mia Sheridan ever writes).
And I loved it.
Evie and Leo were the closest of friends. Helping each other through the foster system. As they grew up, it became something more. Until Leo was fostered, moving away. But he promised to return for Evie.
Years later- no sign of Leo.
I love Mia Sheridan's writing. She just sucks me write into the story. Until I don't want to put the book down.
This was another great New Adult book by her. And I loved it.
I did wish that we had both protagonists points of view, but I can see how it may have spoiled the suspense a bit.
I also love how her books are all connected by being based on star signs.
