A light hearted, sweet, and fun read, The Truth About Leo was a wonderful historical romance I really liked this book It was entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable.Dagmar was a good heroine She refused to let anyone, even the king of Denmark, tell her what to do with her life and she was clever or perhaps impulsive enough to figure a way out She was a likable heroine and I thought she was great.Leo was a total sweetie He was the definition of a gentleman, totally adorable, and utterly ende A light hearted, sweet, and fun read, The Truth About Leo was a wonderful historical romance I really liked this book It was entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable.Dagmar was a good heroine She refused to let anyone, even the king of Denmark, tell her what to do with her life and she was clever or perhaps impulsive enough to figure a way out She was a likable heroine and I thought she was great.Leo was a total sweetie He was the definition of a gentleman, totally adorable, and utterly endearing I really liked him I thought he was perfect.The romance was lovely Dagmar and Leo were great together and I liked how they both didn t bother to hide their feelings for each other And, the chemistry between them was hot, considering how they both could keep their hands off each other or, at least, couldn t stop thinking about it I thought they were great together.The plot was well paced and I was hooked the entire way through, though the story did start to drag near the end The story was delightfully funny and entertaining and, though it did cross the line to silly at a few points, it kept a smile on my face There was a surprise in store that I never saw coming, about one of the characters I really enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely.The Truth About Leo was a wonderful, light, and fun romance I really liked this thoroughly entertaining read From the sweet romance, to the surprising secret, and the endless fun, this book was lovely Romance lovers, this is a book worth checking out I received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review nope DNF at 2% Terrible reader Literal Cat Saving in the first 2 min Annoying My boobs are too big conversation Mediocre at best other reviews Not wasting my time even though it is a library find.
