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…
“Leo Loves Aries” is a sweet slow burn M/M romance with HEA. This New Adult college friends-to-lovers novel can be read as a standalone.
Have you ever watched or read something that left you in a complete hangover? The type of show/book that you need because an instant favorite of yours? It’s happened to me with a few shows/movies/books and there’s always this type of nostalgia. Yeah, that’s the only word I have for it—nostalgia. It’s this feeling in the pit of my stomach, and which I know I’ll never be the same, as cliche as that sounds.
Theo: It’s destiny.
Jamie: What is?
Jamie: Come again?
Theo: It’s written in the stars.
I’d just finished watching Skam for the second time, and I did this back-to-back binge with it. And the thing is that Anyta Sunday’s Rock is a favorite of mine, and so I was absolutely stocked about Leo Loves Aries, but something kept me apprehensive. Little thing called Expectations. Except I should have had them, because it surpassed all of them.
Twins, Theo and Leone, had the worst year. Think about your girlfriend and boyfriend, respectively, breaking up with you only to start dating each other and then getting engaged, and sending you their invite. I mean, they do have to thank you for basically introducing them to each other….yikes. Well, that’s exactly what happens to Theo and Leone. With a perfectly timed Astrology newsletter from their mother, Leone and Theo are ready to move on, and ready to find dates for their ex’s wedding.
