Published: September 6th 2010
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?
Forever Mine is the first installment of The Moreno Brothers Series by Elizabeth Reyes.
This is a very nice story that deals with the fierce emotion of a first love. Elizabeth Reyes wrote a well paced romance about two teenagers who fell in love for the first time. And as first love goes, it's explosive and intense because it's the first time you feel it, you tend to do things clumsily and Ms. Elizabeth Reyes caught that emotion and wrote it well for the readers.
Angel and Sarah have an amazing chemistry together and you'd feel it as you read it. They were nice and very effective as a couple although they frustrated me. The plot was also nicely done, it was really simple when you think about it. Sarah left Angel in the dark about Sydney being a boy, though some readers questions why Sarah couldn't just tell Angel the truth but I think it's due to Angel's intense possessiveness and her youth. She didn't know how to deal with her dilemma and when she did it's too late.
I actually enjoyed reading this book because besides the main characters there are other characters inside this book that made things more interesting. Intense characters like Angel just gets to me. Although, there are some typos that bothered me, the angst and the chemistry of Angel and Sarah made up for it.
This is one series I'm sure I'll be following.
