So we all know the story behind this since this book is a re-told of Evie and Leo's story, this time from Leo's POV. Of course, we are all hungry for Leo's thoughts right? Who wouldn't want to read what's his take on things? :)

I loved Leo and it has become one of my favorite 2013 reads and became a fan of Mia Sheridan's writing. Leo is her debut novel and all I can say is this is how writers should write their debuts. Mia wowed me. If you want to read my review of Leo click here.

I got an eARC of Leo's Chance from Mia but life got in the way and I wasn't able to write a review earlier. Oh, I actually have a life huh? Didn't know that, either. ;)

Like the first book, Mia didn't disappoint with this one. To be honest, I loved this book more than the first. Maybe because I am partial when it comes to guy's pov? Maybe Leo is a better story-teller than Evie? Or maybe because Mia outdone herself? Or maybe all of the above? I don't know. You, be the judge once you read it. But one thing's for sure, this book is wonderfully written that you will find it eliciting emotions you are trying so hard to suppress. I shed a tear or two over this book. Okay, I downplayed that one. Fine, I ugly-cried. Yeah, yeah. Snot and all that. Why, I can't help it. A good story will do that to you, right?

Evie's story is so inspiring and having Leo telling the readers her story makes it more special. He adores her so much and it vibrates in the way he talks about her.

"She pauses and I hold my breath. The last time I was nervous about asking a girl out, I was a teenager and it was the same girl."
"This is the second most incredible kiss of my life. The first one was with the same girl." 
"It wouldn't matter if I didn't know any more than what it took to figure out in a week and a half. And I know that for a fact, because it took me fifteen minutes to know she was someone I was going to fall in love with when I was fucking 11 years old."
"She's my air, my reason for existence, the only thing that matters to me in this life or any other." 
"Home. All along I thought home was a location, and it turns out home is a person. Home is Evie."

Is it possible to worship someone and love them at the same time without adoration being confused with true love? There's a fine line between the two, but I am pretty sure it is. Leo showed us that possibility.

Now, Leo has some asshat side too. And I loved that. :)

"Did I really got through everything I did, all the hell, all the sessions with Doc, all the surgeries, all the struggles, to be sitting in my car, dying slowly of death by cloying perfume, with this clingy, uninteresting Fembot?"
"You're a spoiled, thoughtless bitch and so fucking boring, I can barely keep myself awake when you're talking. Christ, you should bottle your personality and sell it as sleep aid."

After reading Leo's Chance, I fell in love with Mia more. I love how she's able to make inspiring quotes.You know the warm feeling when you read something that touches your heart? Like a literal warm, fuzzy, bear-hug feeling? That's how I feel every time I think about Leo and Leo's Chance.

Both books are beautiful. I don't know how to describe her works exactly. I wish I could tear my heart open and let you all feel what I feel about this book. There's just something in the way it's written. Ugh. It's frustrating how sometimes you can't put into words how you're feeling. Maybe that's why it has taken me too long to write a review for this book, because I don't know how to write down my thoughts about it.

Thank you Mia for letting us read this wonderful story once again and having Leo tell it. This book feels like a complete bonus. Since reading Leo, this author has become an auto-read for me, meaning, any book she'll write - I'll read. This woman is one of the sweetest woman I know. Love you, Mia! ♥♥♥

P.S. Bonus quotes! Yay! These are some of the quotes that melt my heart. These would make good life lessons too!

"I realize now that there are a lot of paths in life. Some we choose, come are chosen for us. I was dealt some shit, just like a lot of us are, and I made a lot of poor choices too. I have to take responsibility for those. But the only thing we'll get from trying to figure out where another path would have taken us are questions there are no answers to, and heartbreak that can't be healed. Regardless of how we got there, all any of us can do is move forward from where we are."
"Knowing in your mind what the right thing is and doing it can be two completely different things. Realizing what is right is the first step, but the follow through can get hung up on so many personal variables."

P.P.S. Can't wait to hold these two babies (Leo and Leo's Chance) in my hands! Why do I have to live in the Philippines in times like these? I. NEED. THE. PAPERBACKS. NOW. lol
