Forever Mine (The Moreno Brothers #1) by Elizabeth Reyes

Book Description:

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?
Christina's BookReview
"This is my fault and I intend on fixing it. But I won't let you back out now, sweetheart. I can't. It may not be too late for you but there's no turning back for me."


Sarah has just been forced to move after her mother is unable to take care of her. Leaving her best friend, Sydney, the and home she has lived in for the longest behind is the hardest thing she has ever done. Now living in La Jolla, CA  with her uncle and his family, she is determined to save up enough money to go back home to live with Sydney’s family. Nothing will prevent her from going back home. Not even Angel Romero, the guy she happens to fall in love with. 

Angel Romero doesn’t have a worry in the world. He is the star of the football team and has the greatest friends. He and his brother are the cover guys for “overprotective” guys. Angel doesn’t have time to be wrapped up in a relationship with any girl. That is until he locks eyes with Sarah. 

As the two spend time together they can’t help the growing attraction for one another. Things are perfect between them. Think again. 

Angel doesn’t believe in guys and girls being friends. Sarah’s best friend Sydney, is a guy. During a series of misunderstanding the two have to finally face the ugly truth. Will their love be enough? 


Forever Mine is the first book in The Moreno Brothers series and it wasn’t my favorite at all. I liked the book but thought that the insta-love was too clique. I wanted there to be more depth to Sarah and Angel’s relationship. 

The whole deal with Sarah keeping Sydney a secret was pointless and made her seem like a very weak character. The reasons behind her keeping the secret were terrible and at the end she got what was coming. I thought that when it came to her relationship with Angel she just did what he wanted and let him take over her life. The fact that she started talking less to Sydney was a huge disappointment to me. He was her best friend and she should have stuck to her guns and showed Angel that they were just that and nothing would change. I like a headstrong protag and she was not one which was a bummer. 

Angel was too possessive for my liking and at times I wished that his love interest were someone stronger. I thought that the way he interacted with his family and friends was really sweet and other then his possessiveness I enjoyed reading about him. 

We also got to meet Alex Moreno, the second oldest brother and By God I LOVED HIM from his first appearance! He was hilarious and such an Alpha male that you automatically craved his story. I knew that Valerie and he would make the perfect match. Their story continues in, Always Been Mine. 

Angel and Sarah’s story is a sweet romance. It was a quick read and introduced you to some of the upcoming characters of The Moreno Brothers series. It’s not a book I would re-read but it was good.
