“Leo Loves Aries” by Anyta Sunday

about

A new person will enter your life in the early year, Leo. Look past any moments of frustration they might bring and laugh—this could be the start of a thriving friendship.

Theo Wallace usually laughs at the horoscopes his mom sends. Still hung up on his ex-girlfriend and practically friendless, this one begs him to reconsider. Because a friendship that stuck, that thrived…

Well, that would be a reason to leave past pains behind and look to the Bright Future.

When his sister Leone challenges him to find her the perfect date for a spring wedding, Theo uses it as a chance to make new friends. Theo’s ex economics tutor and newest roommate Mr Jamie Cooper seems to be a possible and convenient match. Real convenient. Like written in the stars, convenient.

All he has to do is make sure this Jamie is good enough. Could really be the one for her, and the friend for him.

But watch out, Leo, the stars have a surprise in store…

review

I love it when an author rocks a trope and then owns it. Anyta Sunday is the star of slow burn. She knows how to delay gratification and deliberately teases until you are ready to burst. By the time you think the flames are just beginning to lick, *blink* you are surrounded by an inferno. I’m not sure your take on it, but it’s a skill I admire.

Theo and his twin sister, Leone are in need of a new roommate. Leone is blind and Theo demands nothing but the best when it comes to his sister. The lucky new roomie must be neat and considerate to his sister’s…limitations. Most of all, he wants to ensure she doesn’t lose her sense of independence. Their mother is a fortune-teller and her world revolves around astrological forecasts. She warns her Leo’s their axis is about to tip but Theo is not convinced his destiny is written in the stars. Silly boy…mothers are always right.

Like

Anyta’s book are always a lot of fun and filled with great humor. I’m animated when I read her books; I smirk, chuckle and wiggle in anticipation. It’s like a rollercoaster ride. The impatience of the thrill builds and builds and then suddenly I’m holding my breath. It’s exciting! I love her style and she’s quickly become a one-click author for me. If you’re not acquainted with her work, this is a superb place to start.

I loved Theo. I loved Jamie. But I LOVED Theo and Jamie together most of all. They are so cheeky and bicker *ahem..flirt…* like nobody’s business. Theo is completely oblivious when it comes to Jamie, but I found it adorable instead of maddening. However, I’m not sure Jamie would agree with me. Theo is persistent and lucky for him, Jamie is patient. Oh my gracious, is he ever patient. I loved their protectiveness and their jealousy. I loved their quirky games and constant challenges. I found the secondary cast to be extremely strong and solid. I just….loved it.

AND! Don’t forget the short story, Leo Tops Aries *squeee* SO good!

beware

The astrological influence is strong but not oppressive, you don’t have to be a believer yourself but be prepared for those that are. And instalove does not exist in Anyta’s vocabulary. It may be slow, but it’s clear there is only one ending…and ohmyshit what an ending it is!!

bookisforNew Age or Young Adult readers looking for an amazing love story told by the stars, those in the sky and a certain Sunday star.
