Melissa reviews Leo Loves Aries (Signs of Love #1) by Anyta Sunday Published December 4th 2016 by Anyta Sunday, 268 pages.
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…

Why I read this book: Some of my friends had read this book and they LOVED IT, and I loved Rock by Anyta Sunday – plus the blurb didn’t hurt. 😉
This is only the 2nd book by Anyta Sunday that I’ve had the privilege to read. I do own a few other books by her, I just haven’t read them yet. This book right here, Leo Loves Aries, is proof I need to get busy reading those books! Anyta is such a brilliant writer, it’s unbelievable how clever her writing is.
Theo is such a cutie pie!!! He’s like an ADHD cat – constantly moving and talking, and he LOVES to cuddle. 😉 Now, I’ve said this in other reviews about characters who are “straight” and yet have no issue with flirting with another man (regardless of their orientation), or “cuddling.” Where can I meet a man like that? Clearly I am meeting the wrong people because I know of NO MAN who would willingly put their feet in another man’s lap, and let said man remove their sock and tickle their feet. I found this part of the story between Theo and Jamie to be super cute and giggly, and I DIDN’T MIND IT!!!! I wanted more; I wanted to see them really get silly. And when Theo put his peanut butter covered finger in Jamie’s mouth? HELLO!!!! 😀
Theo and Leone are twin siblings. Leone is Theo’s twin sister who suffers from a sort of ocular disease which has severely limited her eye sight. They are both in college and looking for a roommate. Jamie is the perfect roommate, and also a potential date for Leone to an ex’s upcoming wedding. Yeah, it’s complicated. Theo’s ex-girlfriend and Leone’s ex-boyfriend fell in love and are getting married. Theo and Leone have decided to get over their ex’s and find dates for each other to take to the wedding.
A lot of hilarity ensues between Jamie and Theo as Theo tries to set up his sister and friend. Watching Theo be possessive of his “best friend” Jamie is hilarious. He’s never had a friend like Jamie and he doesn’t want to do anything to spoil it. But when Jamie kisses Theo, Theo’s eyes are opened to possibilities. This was such a sweet story about these cute men who are clearly unable to just talk about what they are feeling.
I highly recommend this story. It’s cute, sweet, fun and made me laugh. There is no angst and the drama is negligible. This story will definitely put you in a good mood. Now I am off to mark the rest of my Anyta Sunday books as “must read NOW!”, LOL.

A bit about me: I’m a big, BIG fan of slow-burn romances. I love to read and write stories with characters who slowly fall in love.
Some of my favorite tropes to read and write are: Enemies to Lovers, Friends to Lovers, Clueless Guys, GFY/OFY, Bisexual, Pansexual, Demisexual, Oblivious MCs, Everyone (Else) Can See It, Slow Burn, Love Has No Boundaries.
I write a variety of stories, Contemporary MM Romances with a good dollop of angst, Contemporary lighthearted MM Romances, and even a splash of fantasy.
