Booklist 2017: Leo Loves Aries by Anyta Sunday
Full Disclosure: I rarely read books that are outside of the realm of "Fantasy" in some capacity. Generally, they all have magic or supernatural creatures involved. That being said, I decided to take a leap out of my familiar pond and read something that didn't involve ghosts, vampires, witches, etc. Although, it did include horoscopes which is probably why I felt like it was the perfect way to ease myself into "normal". *wink*
I'm so glad that I fished in new waters. Supernatural-centric stories will always be my favorites but this book was a delightful romp nonetheless. Leo Loves Aries by Anyta Sunday is an adorable and charming love story about navigating the signs life gives you and trusting your gut enough to take chances.
Theo Wallace and his sister Leone are both heartbroken but very much want to move past the people that hurt them. Inspired by one of the horoscopes that their mother sends them, they intend to do exactly that. Theo and Leone make a deal to find each other dates to a spring wedding, giving them the opportunity to liven things up and make some new friends. Enter Mr. Jamie Cooper, practically perfect in every way. Theo is determined to make a love connection for his sister and finds himself endlessly surprised in the process.
I had a hard time putting this one down and would quickly pick it back up again at every opportunity. Theo was incredibly relatable to me, so it was fun to read a character that I saw a lot of myself in. Leone is a badass! Such an inspiring lady. I love her. Can we please talk more about how much I love this woman? *grin* And Jamie? Well, Mr. Jamie Cooper makes me want to be a better person; eat right, exercise, learn to fold my laundry properly. Ha!
All in all, a super fun and insanely sweet read. It's labeled as the first in a series, so I'm looking forward to more! I also plan on checking out Anyta Sunday's other books as well. I hope you will too!
**Bonus: There's also a free download of a sexy follow-up to this book entitled Leo Tops Aries which you can also find on Amazon**
Thanks for reading!,
