Book & Author Details:

Leon’s Way by Sunniva Dee
Publication date: December 19th 2014
Genres: New Adult, Romance


I’m Leon , number one object of Deepsilver’s rumor mill. Owner of student hotspot, Smother.
Since I was sixteen, the world has been mine. I do everything—
My way.
Every co-ed in town clenches her thighs over me, but most don’t fit the bill. See, I like my girls broken . Once I detect my shade of don’t-give-a-fuck damaged, I fight hard, I fight dirty, and I don’t give up until—
I conquer.
Drunk fathers and frequent beatings don’t merit attention, but when my despicable dad starts the process of croaking, I’m forced to remember. Thus, the downward spiral begins: my latest broken-girl turns the tables on me and splits. My hot-as-hell employee, Arriane, throws me the curve ball of a lifetime. And suddenly—
I’m out of control.
But at the center of my chaos, she exists. Always close, always sweet, and so beautifully fucking… wholesome. She represents everything I’ve shied from in a woman. Still—
I crave her.
I’m Leon, and I don’t deny my cravings. Just—this girl is not surrendering. So here I am, fighting harder. Fighting dirtier. And goddammit all, I will—


My Review:
ARC provided for an honest review.
Leon's Way 5 fabulous stars!

I usually don't comment on covers but I love this cover and the model is gorgeous.

I was not expecting to love this book, after reading Pandora Wild Child (and loving it) I  got a glimpse of Leon and I was sure I wasn't going to like him. Well let me tell you I was wrong, so so wrong that I even think I loved this book a little bit more than PWC. I even noted something about 20% in on my Kindle that said "I just fell in love with Leon." Now I'm not the type that has to love characters to love a book because in reality everyone has flaws. And I know this is fiction but you need a little dose of reality thrown in, not everyone is perfect. So Leon is deeply scarred from a very traumatic past and he can't seem to let it go. He was abused by his father repeatedly and witnesses his sister being abused. He holds on to it and the only way he knows how to keep control is to control others. But does this really help him? Or is it making him worse, digging a deeper hole by trying to control everything? He works out in his (punching room) obsessively and uses broken women. If you've read PWC than you know how Leon totally lost control. What I loved is this book picks up from there. Arriane (h) is loyal bartender/party planner tries to calm him down (on that night ) but he can only be calmed in one way and he uses her as his outlet.

Arriane is sweet, loyal and was raised with a wonderful caring mother. Her parents are divorced and her mom made sure that Arriane knew she needed to rely on herself only and not to depend on anyone especially a man. "Love only causes heartbreak." Arriane has been in love (secretly) with Leon for three years now, she has suffered watching him bring many broken woman around and she has heard about his kinks. She knows she isn't compatible with him because of this but there is so much more to the man than he shows everyone, she has seen small glimpses of his other side. After the one night of being Leon's outlet everything changes.

First off I loved the mixing of cultures I wrote that in another review because I find it refreshing to read about interracial couples. Second Arriane was awesome! I loved her, I wanted to hug her and comfort her and even strangle her at times. Ingela and Cam put a lot of light into this deeply emotional book, what great secondary characters! Leon and Kat my heart goes out to them and what a strong female character Kat was. She was so beautiful and forgiving (I would love to get a book about her). Leon was so completely broken he didn't know what to do with himself he wanted to save Arriane from his tendencies but couldn't stay away. To me right there that showed me he wasn't the evil person he thought he was. I really could go on and on about the characters and how well developed they were but you really just need to read the book to understand.

There is a quote about 75% into the book where Leon and Kat are visiting his father and it was then that I think the light bulb went off for Leon. His father made a statement about not be able to control their mother. It gave me the chills. And the last page before the epilogue made me cry. If you like it steamy you've got that too, as early on as chapter two I was fanning myself. ;)

This is such a involved and emotional book I really don't think my review can do it justice.

Sunniva Dee does write with soul, her characters are deep and complex and you can't help but hate to love them or love to hate them.

I highly recommend this book!

Originally from Norway, I moved to the United States twelve years ago. I hold a Master’s degree in languages and taught Spanish at college level before settling in at the Savannah College of Art and Design as an adviser.

I write New Adult fiction, sometimes with a paranormal twist—like in “Shattering Halos,” published by The Wild Rose Press in February 24th 2014 and in “Stargazer,” released November 2014. The first book I’ve self-published was the New Adult Contemporary novel “Pandora Wild Child,” which made me a proud indie author in October 28th 2014.

I specialize in impulsive heroines, bad-boys, and good-boys running amok. Then, there’s the intense love, physical and emotional attraction beyond reason—sensory overload for the reader as well as for the characters. Like in real life, I hope you’re unable to predict what comes next in my stories.

Yes, so I write what I love to read, and depending on the reader, you’ll find my books to be a fast-paced emotional rollercoaster—or disturbing because the struggles of love aren’t your thing. Here’s to hoping you have the same reading vice as me!
