Leo is such an emotional rollercoaster. It's about two kids who grow up in the foster care system together. As they get older, Leo and Evie realize the relationship is more than platonic. When one gets adopted and had to move, they lost contact.Evie basically spent the years pining for Leo, although he'd broken her heart. Then along comes the handsome Jake.
I'm going to be the anomaly and say I knew what Jake was up to from the start. The way he was acting was a huge flag. However, his big twist and tragic backstory really worked. It wasn't so far fetched to be unbelievable yet shocking enough to keep you on edge. The story was well thought-out and made sense. I really understood the characters, their relationship and their motives. This is the type of story that will make you feel emotionally invested.
Maxine Mitchell was great. Joe Arden is one of my favorite narrators but we don't get to hear from him be much as 90% of the story was told by Evie's character

Evie was 10 and Leo was 11 when they first became friends in Foster Care then, by the time they were 14 and 15 they had fallen in love with each other and even dreamed of a future together. But the unthinkable happened when Leo was adopted and the two devastated friends shared their first kiss and promised to keep in touch..... a promise that Leo never kept. Years later all grown up Evie was being stalked by Jake a handsome, sexy, deep brown eyed stranger....... but he had some bad news for her.
This story, that went back and forth in time to tell their love story, gripped me from the start even though I had my doubts and suspicions about the stranger who soon became Evie's whole world as their sizzling chemistry quickly boiled over. But the tragic story of what happened to Leo was a chilling and heartbreaking revelation. There's drama, angst, humor, heartbreak, secrets, revelations, romance and lust filled sex.
Worth a credit? Dual POV's, very good dual narration, a well written captivating story with likeable primary and secondary characters and a romantic sweet Epilogue makes this a very creditworthy listen. And Mia Sheridan is an author whose imaginative and romantic words have made her books an auto download for me.

Truly thought provoking and heart wrenching. This was the first time I'd read/listened to Mia Sheridan. I was impressed by her style of writing and, in this case, the content - a subject very empathetically and sensitively covered.
The story was brought to life by Maxine Mitchell, Narrator - in my opinion she is in a class of her own.
I would certainly recommend this book
