Title: Forever Mine (The Moreno Brothers)
Author: Elizabeth Reyes
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?
Thoughts on the Book:
I've read all the books in the Moreno Brothers Series except Romero's story and this is my favorite. I love the other books but this will always have a special place in my heart. I love Angel and Sarah and even though they have a mini story which is included in Sal's book, I still felt deprived of their story. It felt "bitin". I wanted more. It is so good that you'll want to find that special someone who'll make you feel loved and whom you'll love in return. Angel and Sarah's story will inspire everyone that true love is real and it can be found. It'll make you feel giddy and excited that you'll want to read it all over again.
Angel is the perfect epitome of campus heartthrob - a playboy who found his perfect match and became a one-woman man after meeting Sarah. He is my favorite among the Morenos. I have read this books weeks ago and every time I remember Angel, it still puts a dreamy smile on my face. I fell in love with him the moment he was introduced in the book.
I love Sarah. She's so unpretentious. She doesn't seem to notice how beautiful she really is. She doesn't want attention that's why she tries to be invisible. She always seem to look for a good attitude in an every person she meets. She doesn't dwell on their negative side. She always try to justify an individual if he/she acts badly.
What I don't like about this books is the fact that Angel Moreno doesn't accept the idea that a guy and a girl can be friends without malice. For the record, I have guy friends too. I just find it absurd that he finds the friendship thing unacceptable. A guy and a girl can have a just-friends relationship without crossing the border line.
This books tells how important communication is between a couple. A couple should avoid keeping things from each other. They should be open about whatever they feel.
Anyways, you've got to read this books so you can meet the Moreno brothers together with Romero and Eric. I promise you'll enjoy their company.
Quotes from the Book
"We may not all have a great start, you know, but it's where you end up that counts."
"So what happened last night, did you score? What? You're kidding me? She shot you down?"
"No, she didn't shoot me down. We just talked. That's all."
"Losing your touch, uh? I thought for sure I'd be hosting the backseat of my car down, the way you were looking at her."
"How was I looking at her?"
"Like you wanted to swallow her up, that's how. Come on dude, I can't believe all you did was talk."
"Nah, man, it wasn't like what you're thinking That's not what I was going for with her."
"What? Angel Moreno is into talking to chicks now? When did you turn into a total wuss?"
"I don't know, dude, she's just cool to hang with, I guess."
"So, you're not into her? I thought she was pretty hot."
"I'm into her, you ass, just cause I didn't bone her the first night. Not all girls are like that, you know."
Rating: 5/5"So you did get shot down."
