{Series Mini Review} The Moreno Brothers by Elizabeth Reyes @AuthorElizabeth

September 25, 2015 New Adult, Reviews 2 ★★★½

So guys, I have a confession to make. I am way better at reviewing “review” books than I am about books that I buy for myself. Books that I buy for myself often get pushed to the bottom of my TBR or, like in this case, get read but do not get reviewed. I read these books in 2012. 2012 guys!! and they were never reviewed. I made some notes for myself when I reading them, so I know why I didn’t review them. Because I didn’t really have a lot to say, but still.

So I decided to combine books 1 & 2 and do a mini series review because this was a good series for upper ya/na and I think it deserves a little love.

Also, I get to try out the multiple books feature of the Ultimate Book Blogger plugin. I love how easy it was to display all the info for each book.

Seventeen-year old Sarah’s life is turned upside down when her single mom is sent to jail. She’s forced to move, leaving behind everything she’s ever known, including her best friend Sydney. Lost and bitter in a new school, her one goal is to save money and move back home. Then she meets Angel Moreno.

Enigmatic but gorgeous, Angel is almost too good to be true. Except for one thing, his archaic belief that guys and girls can never be “just friends”. The problem? Sarah’s best friend Sydney is not a girl.
With their unexpected romance intensifying to places neither ever experienced, how long can Sarah keep Angel in the dark about the guy waiting for her back home?

After one heartache too many, Valerie Zuniga vows to never let Alex Moreno hurt her again. A year later, she is forced to reunite with him at a party where one unexpected sizzling kiss tells her she’s far from over him. No way will she allow herself to get sucked back into that torment. She’ll resist him even if that means using the one thing that’ll stop Alex dead in his tracks: another man.

Alex is coming off one of the worst years of his life. He spent so much time wallowing in self-pity, he never realized how much he’d missed Valerie. That is, until that kiss. Now, he’s determined to get her back one way or another, and no other man will stand in his way. Especially after discovering that Valerie may be in danger, a danger he blames himself for.

NA Review My Thoughts

Forever Mine and Always Been Mine are the first two books in the Moreno Brothers series. They are both really great romances, with the first one being a little more on the sweet side and the second one being a little more on the saucy side. I think I enjoyed the first book, Forever Mine a little bit more but both were good. As you may have guessed the series follows the Moreno Brothers. Alex (from Always Been Mine) is much more intense, and he matched the tone of his story.

Forever Mine follows Sarah and Angel. Theirs is a story of sweet love. It had a first love kind of feel and is the perfect book for summer. On the other hand Always Been Mine follows Alex and Valerie. Theirs is a story of second chance love. They have a very volatile on again off again relationship that led to a more drama and angst filled story. I liked that though both books focused on the Moreno Brothers, they couldn’t have been more different. You don’t need to read them in order to understand them, but it would be good to see all of the characters. But if you are in the mood for something a little darker and sexier, start with book 2. If you are looking for sweet, go with Forever Mine- book 1. And if you just can’t get enough the brothers, don’t worry there are almost 10 books and novellas in their series, so these are great for binge reading.
