Retro Review: Leo Loves Aries by Anyta Sunday


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..

4 Stars

Theo and his sister, Leone, have been looking for a new roommate, but it's not going well. They can't find anyone that they feel they'll be compatible with, until a chance conversation with Theo's former Econ tutor, Jamie. The Stars all seem to align perfectly when Jamie agrees to move in with them.

This was a cute story. Theo is so oblivious to what is happening between him and Jamie, but I loved that naïveté and sort of innocence he had about him. He was very immature, but in a sweetly annoying way. I absolutely adored the banter between Theo and Jamie, they were hilarious together.

The chemistry and sexual tension between Theo and Jamie was off the charts, and while the story is a slow burn and only had a little bit of spice, what was there was sweet and passionate. You could practically see the hearts flying above Theo and Jamie's heads.

This was a sweet and well-written story. I loved both Jamie and Theo and I absolutely adored the care they showed for Theo's sister, Leone, who is legally blind. They made life easier for her while not taking away her independence or making her feel handicapped in any way. This story was loaded with some amazing secondary characters, including Sean, Jamie's best-friend and Leone, as well as both sets of parents, Jamie's and Theo's.

Now, Sam and Derek, Theo and his sister, Leone's exes, like what the ever loving f@@k?! How callous were these two to break-up with them for one another and then keep rubbing their relationship in their faces,  especially Sam!! I wanted to throttle her!! I mean who invites their exes to their wedding?!?! Ugh!!

All in all, this was an enjoyable and great story I'd definitely recommend!!
