    One thought on “Convincing Leopold

    1. Ele

      Review for the second edition.Convincing Arthur ended with a rather satisfying HFN. Arthur and Leopold admitted they had feelings for each other, and decided to give their "relationship" a chance. I was hoping, though, that we would find them in a better place in Convincing Leopold. It didn't happen.Actually, the two of them seem to be facing some serious problems.Lack of communication. Arthur and Leopold don't communicate at all. They never discuss their problems, thoughts, or at least, the thi [...]

      ~3.5~This book is a follow-up to and gives us a HEA for Arthur and Leopold.The first book ends with a HFN after Arthur finally decides to give Leopold a chance to prove that he can be a faithful partner. But once Arthur and Leopold return to London from the country, Arthur gets caught up in his work as a solicitor and starts pulling away from Leopold. Noticing that Arthur has become distant, Leopold uses sex as a way to bring them closer. Arthur gets to the point where he dreads seeing Leopold b [...]

      This short story follows up the events from Convincing Arthur. Arthur and Leopold have been together ever since Leopold managed to convince Arthur to take him serious as a potential lover and that he has been in love with him for years. Now, after a couple of months, Leopold has turned his life around. He stopped drinking, whoring, gambling, and generally being everything Arthur has always disliked about him. But now that he has nothing to do all day, he is growing restless, desperately clinging [...]

      En la línea del anterior pero algo más flojo. Leopold definitivamente es el más interesante (y dirty) de los 2 #TeamLeopold

      Favorite Quote: Glancing over his shoulder, he winked. “Have at it, Mr. Barrington.”The very first book I ever read by Ava March was Convincing Arthur, and I really enjoyed it. However I thought it had a very abrupt ending. So I was very happy when I heard that she was going to write a sequel, Convincing Leopold.Convincing Arthur leaves off with Arthur Barrington and Leopold Thornton, or “Thorn” happy. They found each other after ten years of missed opportunities, and are in love. Now ab [...]

    6. Kassa

      Convincing Leopold is a decent sequel to Convincing Arthur. You should really read the first book to fully appreciate the main couple and their relationship but I found that the same frustrations I had with the first book are still present in this sequel. It’s an easy novella to read and March is a good writer but my main annoyance is with Arthur and those issues aren’t solved in the sequel. If you’ve read the first book and quite liked the couple, definitely continue with this one. Other [...]

      Review originally posted on The Book Adventures of Annelise Lestrange :)The StoryArthur couldn’t be happier with his lover, Leopold. Without the threat of coming home to an empty and cold apartment, Arthur is refreshed and working even harder than usual. Except that Leopold seems to be restless of late and just won’t let Arthur rest at all during the night… And not in a pleasant way.Leopold couldn’t be happier with his lover, Arthur. Without the threat of losing him again to some other m [...]

      Review for the 2nd EditionThree months into their relationship -- after the ending in Convincing Arthur -- and we found Arthur and Leopold trying to find balance and working their relationship. Unfortunately, this was also the case of two men who couldn't actually speak what they actually thought or felt and ended up causing problems. For Arthur Barrington, who still bears the scars after his break-up of a decade relationship, he wonders if Leopold is eager to return to his freedom, that he will [...]

      Once again Ava March created a masterful m/m historical romance. She's an all time favorite of mine in the historical sub-genre and for a very good reason, she rocks!In this one, Leopold Thornton has been in love with Arthur Barrington for a very long time and the man is finally his. At first their relationship is blissful and the two seem to get along marvelously, but then work and the struggle of everyday life start taking their tolls on Arthur, pulling him further and further away from Leopol [...]

    10. ⚣❣☙ Michaelle ❧❣⚣

      4.2 StarsEven better than the first one! I loved this because it focuses on the established relationshipe growing pains, the adjustments, the expectations and even the failures. Yes, it has that oft-overused lack of communication driving the dramabut I think that - given the time period this is set and the typical way men (especially well-t0-do gentlemen) of this era aren't really reared to be in touch with their feelings (stiff upper-lip and all that) - it's an appropriate plot device choice.An [...]

      Convincing Leopold picks up about three months after the end of Convincing Arthur. More than just a sequel, this book is really Part II of the story of Leopold Thornton and Arthur Barrington's relationship. It focuses on the real life that happens at the end of a typical romance novel, after the characters commit to each other and ride off into the sunset. As much as both men care for each other, their relationship is struggling, mostly due to the anxieties and insecurities each man brings. (As [...]

    12. Trix

      Frankly, Leopold annoyed me somewhat in this volume. His behaviour was too frenzied, he practically pushed himself on Arthur, (one scene almost felt like rape). And again, the focus was more on their sexual relationship than developing their emotional connection. Other than Leopold's visits to Arthur's office and occasional meals in the evening, I can't remember them doing much else (and I just finished the book this morning).I understand all about propriety and the awkwardness of a new relation [...]

      Being in a gay relationship in Victorian society is stressful enough, but when one lover is an exhausted workaholic and the other is depressive and needy, the problems can get serious. This sequel to Convincing Arthur is more interesting and believably emotional than the first book, and gives the pair a stronger happy ending.

    14. Chris

      Very good historical m/m romance following up with Arthur and Leopold three months into their relationship, as failure to communicate is causing some problems. Far from frustrating me, that failure to communicate made everything feel very realistic - not a Big Misunderstanding, but the slow accumulation of stuff from everyday life.

    15. Didi

      Review for the 2nd edition3.75 starsThis novella took place three months after Convincing Arthur ended in which Arthur and Leopold - or Thorn, as Arthur was fond of calling him - had settled into a relationship. Or so it was supposed to be. When they were no longer secluded in the country and Arthur being busy with work, Thorn's old anxiety raised its ugly head again. The reflected behavior disrupted the fragile bond these two had.The story was told alternately from Arthur and Thorn's POVs in th [...]

    16. Plainbrownwrapper

      I found this sequel more satisfying than the first installment. This is Leopold and Arthur in the middle of their relationship, so my concerns about how they fell in love in the first place don't apply here. Also, I could understand and empathize with the feelings of each man here (insecurity and general lack of self-confidence on one side, preoccupation and job stress on the other), and I could easily understand how their feelings could strain both sides of any relationship unintentionally. Of [...]

      Main Characters:Arthur has come far in the three months since he and Leopold began their relationship. Work is as taxing as ever, and his new secretary, Fenton, isn't helping to alleviate the load as much as Arthur had hoped. The bright point is the time he spends with Leopold, whether at his bachelor's apartment or Leopold's townhouse. He's ruffled by Leopold's constant pressure for sex, but can't find it in himself to turn Leopold down outright, leaving him exhausted and tetchy, wondering if h [...]

      A copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review. The review was written for, and originally posted at lovebytesreviews.Convincing Leopold picks up a few months after the Happy For Now ending of Convincing Arthur. These books focus on Arthur Barrington, working Lawyer, and Leopold Thornton, spoiled younger son of a wealthy family. When we last saw them, Leopold had convinced Arthur that he had been in love with him for years, waiting until Arthur ended his relationship with his [...]

      Originally posted at: whippedcream2/201Life has a way of getting in the way of love. At least it seems that way to Arthur. His soliciting business is booming and he’s busier than ever, which means he has less time to devote to his lover, Thorn. Since Thorn stopped all his vices at Arthur’s request, he’s been craving more and more time with Arthur. Yet Arthur’s business seems to constantly be in their way despite Arthur’s promise not to let it. When small misunderstandings pile up and c [...]

      Let me say up front that Ava March's Bound series is an all time fave of mine. This book is a follow up to Convincing Arthur with the same couple three months into their relationship. Thorn is one of those delicious rakes who is reforming for love and Arthur is the serious working guy not quite believing the rake could love him. We left the couple in the last book just having commited to their relationship. This book is wrought with the misunderstandings of a new couple who don't know yet how to [...]

      After reading the first London Legal book, Convincing Arthur, I couldn’t wait to pick up the sequel Convincing Leopold. I had to know if Arthur and Leopold would last. I mean, I KNOW they will get a HEA, this is the land of romance after all, but I needed to see it to believe it. It’s been three months since Leopold Thornton has confessed his love to his good friend and lover Arthur Barrington. Three months since Leopold has given up his vices of drink, gambling and brothels. For a while, Le [...]

      Leopold Thornton is not happy. It’s been three months since he started his relationship with Arthur, but after an amazing first month, he can sense Arthur’s detachment. Certainly, he’s realised Thorn is worthless and is already moving on. Besides, he has a young and sexy new secretary who seems so interested in his boss… and not only in a professional way.Arthur Barrington knew that dating Leopold was a bad idea. He’s getting more and more demanding and reckless in his affections. Arth [...]

      Note – I read the first one before reading this one. And if you haven’t I would suggest you do, it just would make more scene.It’s no secret I love Ava March;s work…. all of her work…. but for some strange reason I’d never read these before?! Bad stalker fan….Back story, Arthur and Leopold met very briefly ten yrs prior, had a drink, Arthur leaves, Leopold gets up the courage to approach Arthur but finds it’s too late. Arthur has fell in with someone. Ten yrs later, Arthur and sa [...]

      More angst than I like, but it’s well writtenWarning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS. Rating: 8/10PROS: - I liked that we got to see more of society in this installment than the earlier. I didn’t feel claustrophobic with the first story, but essentially the entire thing is set in Leopold’s country house, whereas this one includes a variety of settings in and around London.- In addition to the broadening of settings, this story contains more secondary character [...]

      Convincing Leopold is the sequel to Convincing Arthur by Ava March. Convincing Leopold takes up the romance between these two young men after they return to London and the real world. Both men are faced with obstacles to forging a stable and lasting relationship. Arthur Barrington is overworked and Leopold Thornton doesn't have anything to do now that he reformed from his rakish ways.March deals with their jealousies and insecurities as they try to build a strong bond in a society that punishes [...]

      Perfect EndingThis one carries on from "Convincing Arthur" most splendidly and sticks pretty much to the outline blurb. What is not mentioned, however, is how stubborn each man is when it comes time to communicating what's really on his mind--exactly the same fault they displayed in the previous book. Only this time it gets almost out of hand.There are some wonderful scenes here in which Leopold (Thorn) manages to turn polite society into his feeding ground, and some exceptionally hot sex--well, [...]

    27. Julesmarie

      I tend to not enjoy stories about established couples as much as I do stories about people becoming couples. I think it's because I'm not such a fan of the misunderstanding/miscommunication plot devices. That held true for this story as well.For much of the story I wanted to reach in and shake either Leopold or Arthur--or both--and force them to sit down and actually TALK to each other. I wanted this badly enough for part of the story that it got to the point it wasn't really fun to read anymore [...]

    28. Emmie

      Well, this was a nice follow up to Convincing Arthur. I have to say I think I liked Leopold's internal dialogue better than Arthur. But, he is a more extravagant character than staid and reliable, if a bit dense, Arthur. I will say though that I wish Fenton the new character would have been a bigger storyline. He almost doesn't seem that big of a deal for Leopold to get nervous over. Ava March has written a nice novella that draws you in and allows you to get emotionally invested in the protagon [...]

    29. Tamela

      Even better than the first. I truly love Leopold. He is so vulnerable and needs Arthur so much. It was hard to read how he felt, the fear of rejection and his depression eating away at him. I love Arthur also, but he made me so mad when he let Leopold go and then thought that giving them a few days to cool off would be a good idea.I'm happy that Leopold realized that he needed something to keep himself busy and that he took the steps to ensure that they would have time together just the two of t [...]

      I really love historical romances. When they are mm books they are even more interesting because of the serious repercussions that could happen if lovers are discovered. This seems to add to the overall spice of a story. I hate it though when authors publish 80 page books and then continue the story in another 80 page book. Just write one long one!I liked the characters in this one - I didn't love them but they were entertaining enough. I recommend this one for anyone who is a fan of the genre t [...]
