4 Sexy Stars
A sweet sexy read between two ex-friends to lovers. I have read one of Sarah's books previously and this one is know different, a joy and gives you a happy smile at the end.
So what's it about?Leo Maddox has money, and lots of it he's polished works hard and smiles when he needs to and answers to his father but he isn't happy, when he was a younger man than he I now his mother disappeared not handling the loss of her best friend and Clara and Maggie's mum so she ran and left Leo and her husband behind with no thought to Leo and his feelings whereas Leos dad may be cold and goal/money oriented therefore alone but Leo is no way like that inside.
Leo's best friend is Maggie-Cara's twin sister and they may be identical in looks but no-way are the same inside whereas Maggie is calm nurturing and caring, watching out for the people around her and not making fights with people namely Leo Clara does and Clara is the feisty one and the one that clash's with Leo maybe in the best ways but maybe not also.
Clara is hurting and is always fighting with Leo there is banter but there is also hurt and pain underneath those layers and walls that she has put up so the likes of Leo and maybe even her sister can't get inside until now.
The thing is once those layers start to come down there's a sweet lady underneath who loves Leo the way he loves her, this is there story of coming together. I will say don't expect lots of plot twists but this is definitely a happy go lucky read, sweet tender moments, friendship, past and present moments.
I would explain Leo as polished, a millionaire who takes care of his loved ones, takes pride in his appearance but at the same is willing to change to become his true self with the people he needs to impress. Caring, loving and goes after Clara once he knows what he wants. Dark hair, gorgeous eyes and a true friend and family man to the family he has known his whole life.
Feisty, rebellious, hidden but soft and sweet underneath. Blonde hair naturally but likes to change from time to time. A twin and the other half to Leos soul but at the same time the twin to Maggie.
My ThoughtsIts always a joy to read Sarah's books and that is exactly how I would explain my experience in reading Leo cause he has the qualities I love to read when reading sweet reads like this one. The writing flowed well and I grabbed hold of the story from page 1.
