    Authentic Conversation From My Teen Years Setting A backyard hammock as a friend and I lounge around talking about our plans.Me Whatcha wanna do today Friend Dunno Go hang out at name removed s house I heard a few guys are gonna be over there You know who might show up Those two hot guys that name removed is friends with Me Okay Let s do that 2.5 stars So that s about what happened in the first half of Forever Mine Except it happened with book characters and not me and my best friend But it didn t matter The first half of this book read extremely pedestrian, as if you were just having another random day in your life and not actually getting to live vicariously through book characters who might be doing something far exciting Hell, I m pretty sure my own life was infinitely interesting than the life these characters were living Maybe it s time to leak my own Behind the Music story to the worldLet s transition to the second half of the book Lying about the sex of your best friend is NOT cool If I had a friend from childhood who just so happened to be a guy, any new boyfriend of mine would have to deal with it Period I could see where things could get sketchy if you started hanging out with a guy after you had started a relationship if you were being secretive about it, but come ona friend that you knew BEFORE you got involved in a relationship Is there any reason you should need to hide that this friend isn t a girl If you re that freaked out about how your boyfriend will react, you might be dating the wrong guy I hate to insert the overused phrase just sayin here, but if the phrase fitsCreepy Stalker Coach did make the story interesting, but I felt like this was sort of used as a reason to justify why Angel was borderline possessive Because after all, if your girl is in danger, then you have a reason to be upset, right I should have paid attention to the tile of the book You have permission to smack me The title is Forever Mine Yes, I stupidly walked into this one Authors quit pairing up kids in high school by making them promise forever to each other Seriously Stop it.I loved all of the side characters ALL of them Regardless of my feelings about this book, I will be reading the rest of the series because all of the additional characters out shined the main characters I m excited to read about Sofia and Alex the most This series can only go up from here I ve heard the other books are better and wicked grin they get steamier This is an early writing from the author and I have read other books by her that were good I m going to cut some slack here and not keep any harsh feelings toward Forever Mine because many authors take a book or two to get into a groove I know that this author can write a fun story with lovable characters Noah was a great read Reyes style is easy to fall in to She is capable of writing an exciting and sweet romance.Honestly, this is not the worst effort I ve seen for a first book There are no real big complaints from me I actually liked the read fineit was just a basic and enjoyable romance with not much else going on.

    I end up with a lot of free Kindle books The Moreno Brothers series ended up falling in my lap and the first in the series ended up being yet another book to throw on the It could have been good, but pile Forever Mine begins just like any other YA fiction story After her mother is sentenced to three years in prison for embezzlement, 17 year old Sarah is sent from her home in Arizona to southern California to live with her aunt, uncle and cousin On the first day of her senior year in a new school, she catches the eye of Angel Moreno, football god and general high school rock star Angel s never had a girlfriend of course not , but Sarah s captivating eyes snare him and he just has to get to know her better The two meet shortly thereafter at a party and thoroughly cheesy, gag inducing romance ensues That s where the story begins to come together Or fall apart, depending on your outlook What I liked about this book 1 Character detail There is a catch that I will get into later, but Ms Reyes definitely put thought and effort into her character than some authors bother to 2 Length It wasn t so short that I felt like I hadn t really read much at all and, while it did teeter on the edge of being a bit too long, it ended quickly enough for my taste Now let s talk about the problems with this story warning they are numerous The most glaring problem is the characters themselves While they were detailed and well written in that regard, I just couldn t bring myself to like any of them With perhaps the exception of Sarah s best friend Sydney, I found them all to be pathologically dysfunctional and irritating We ll start with Sarah Sarah is a weak, naive mental midget Seriously, the girl is just plain dumb She nearly gets herself raped hanging around with a teacher who literally everyone including Sydney has warned her about Ms Reyes briefly alludes to the fact that Sarah feels the way she does about her pervy but caring coach, Rudy because she never had a strong father figure in her life, but this issue is never explored further While it could have served as an eye opener or warning to other girls about the effect the absence of a father can have on a young girl, the entire incident was treated as nothing than a setup for Angel to flex his super Latino muscles and rescue poor wittle Sarah from Coach Pedo.Aside from being completely stupid, Sarah is also dishonest She spends three months hiding from Angel the fact that her best friend in Arizona is a guy Why Well, we return now to that whole weak thing I mentioned earlier The girl has no backbone She knows Angel won t like the fact that her best friend is a guy believe me, I ll delve into that topic shortly , so instead of risking upsetting him, she just chickens out and continues letting Angel believe Sydney is a girl Her cousin, Valerie, is continually nagging Sarah to tell him because she knows the longer the charade goes on, the worse the fallout is going to be, but does Sarah buck up and do it Of course not It s been a while since I ve felt this venomous toward a female protagonist I loathed Sarah Angel Where do I begin Angel is a misogynistic, insecure egomaniac who needs serious therapy and an anger management class At 17, he s shaping up to become what my younger brother refers to as a Stair Pusher translation a guy who pushes women down stairs He loses his temper often than is healthy for anyone, often over completely inconsequential things If Sarah pays any attention to anything with a penis aside from him, his family, and his friends , he becomes instantly enraged, asks her what the hell she thinks she s doing, and physically threatens the male Reading Angel s reactions to other males was like watching a psychotic peacock on the verge of a nervous breakdown The fact that some females find this kind of behavior endearing makes me a little nauseous, and while I m sure some would defend Angel s actions by claiming he s just overly protective , that excuse flies out the window when you consider Angel s reaction to Sydney He is, of course, insanely territorial and angry At first, he flat out refuses to accept Sarah and Sydney s friendship even after he discovers Sarah isn t in love with Sydney When he meets Syndey on somewhat positive terms toward the end of the book, I kept waiting for him to cock his leg and piss on Sydney s shoes Absolutely ridiculous This is yet another YA romance that is shoving in young girls faces the idea that a controlling, abusive relationship is somehow ideal But he s just so dreamy SnarkHow does Sarah deal with the Angel Sydney conundrum By distancing herself from her best friend of eight years to appease lover boy But it s OK because Sydney has a new girlfriend and she too is uneasy about the close friendship of Sydney and Sarah SighMe thinks Ms Reyes knows a lot of very insecure people The peripheral characters consist of cousin Valerie, Angel s brother Alex Valerie and Alex start up their own romance , older brother Sal Moreno, a younger Moreno sister who is treated even worse than the Moreno boys girlfriends, and Angel s two best friends, Romero and Eric Eric is conducting a secret relationship with younger sister, Sofia which nearly gets him killed by Alex Side note I ve read the second installment of this series, Always Been Mine and am working on the attached Novella, Sweet Sofie, and my reviews of those books will go into detail regarding the bizarre, abusive treatment of Sofia The parents parental figures are predictably absent in this book, only appearing occasionally to either interrupt various shenanigans or to dole out life advice like they ve been involved at all in these kids livesever This book just went completely off the rails and over the top.and pretty much every other euphemism for too much you can think of It glorifies abusive relationships and is sexist on a level not many books can reach Mostly because the sexism is subtle I ll never understand how female authors manage to craft fictional girls who are so completely repulsive as to make it impossible for anyone with even half a brain to sympathize with them or their plight Sarah brought all of her problems on herself, first by choosing to date an overbearing, irrational, violent douchebag, and then by deciding that dishonesty was just plain easier than telling the truth A weak plot, sloppy writing grammatical errors galore , loathsome characters, and disgusting behavior come together to make Forever Mine a thoroughly disturbing, infuriating read.

    Such a beautiful cover Too bad the story isn t as beautiful I m not even halfway done and already I can tell where the story is going.Sorry, but withholding information about a male best friend from a boyfriend is not enough to hold this story together Getting jealous about past relationships that had nothing to do with you in the first place isn t enough to hold this story together Getting jealous over every little thing and detail about someone s life whom you ve barely known is childish, especially when the teens in this story are old enough to know better All we have here is a good looking girl and a good looking guy who are too insecure Maybe that s enough for young high schoolers but, for me, it s pretty stupid.For someone who cares about Sydney the way that Sarah is claiming, there shouldn t have even been a secret to hide Sydney s always been there for her when she needed him, and still is, so what s the problem If he s that important to her as she says he is then Angel should be the one who has to accept that, not the one who s providing the ultimatum Then she s the one who keeps saying she s leaving, so why is she letting Angel have so much power over her life This is THE MAJOR PROBLEM I have with stories like this Looks, although important, should not be the only basis to the actual story.Secondly, where s the so called spark I don t feel it between these two because of all the problems that shouldn t be problems getting in the way That would be fine if they were sophos They re seniors I ve never known any seniors who ve acted like this You d think that Angel would be ready and willing to abuse Sarah if he didn t get his way It s petulant and childish, another thing that doesn t even bring enough support to the actual story.whatever the story is.Now I have to finish this just to see if Forever Mine can be salvaged If these imaginary issues are the plot, then this is a big FAIL already I d take Beautiful Disaster over this any day.Oh, and both boys have WOMEN names Angel Sydney Even playing that route is ridiculous.Thirdly, too may of them are in each other s relationships Valerie giving Sarah advice about keeping a guy when she s fooling around with who knows who Yeah Okay Then when she gets a Moreno, she s hooking up with Romero I get that she s trying to protect her feelings, but who is she to say who Angel is when she didn t even know the Moreno brothers knew her all that well Doesn t hold up.Then, what s with the wording When you re telling us something that happened, there s no need to put it in dialogue when you ve already said it happened For example She wasn t sure it was a good idea She didn t know if she could keep it secret any longer I m not sure this is a good idea I don t know how long I can hold this secret Um, no You ve already told us this Unless you re planning to change something about what you ve already told us, there s no need to repeat it This story, as a whole so far, is full of contradictions, inconsistencies, and the holes are just forming And let s not even talk about the terrible grammar and lack of punctuation when needed.LATERI m a bit past the half point in the story and I m still not satisfied When Sarah was informed of Sydney s accident, why would she STILL keep lying about his identity What if they said Sydney was dead Would the alias still be important to her I m sorry, but I might have to discontinue this story and give it a big fat F.I may need time to finish this one, even though I know where it is going Hell, it took me 3 days to even get this far Now I m just suffering through the rest I need a break Or I may not finish this one at all LATERI m done with it Seriously I can t say I enjoyed it, either This story just couldn t hold my attention the way I wanted it to and I knew exactly how it would go down.I won t be reading anything by this author any of that I m positively sure.It gets an F Final answer, Regis.

    This is probably one of the cutest books I ve read in a long time This is my first book by Elizabeth Reyes, but I ve already started on the second book in this series have bought the rest of them This book brought back soooo many high school memories some good some bad , and truly made me feel like I was friends with the characters in this book.The good I truly fell in love with Reyes characters I would love a Moreno man of my own Like I said before, the author really makes you believe you are right there with them throughout the story To me, this was a perfect summer read just an all round sweet storyThe bad When the big climax happens I won t spoil it for you, I promise , I really wanted to slap both Angel Sarah They were both sooo stupid at certain points, that I had to stop readying take a break or be forced to destroy my kindle Luckly though, this is not the majority of the book nor does it take the majority of the book for them to figure out what morons they were Overall, I would rate this book a 4.5 It is going on my favorites list I have to stop this review now, so that I can finish the second book I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a fun, nostalgic, sweet book.

    7 27 2014 2.5 stars for the audio version One of my favorite bks turns out to be a dud on audio The voice the narrator uses for the guys in the story makes them sound like cartoon character meatheads And she uses the same dumb voice for all the guys Moreno s, Eric, Romero UGH Skip the audio version and read the bk Such a diappointing shame 9 22 2011 This series was the absolute best surprise Have had this first bk for a while but kept putting it off, now I can t stop telling people about it Gotta re read Angel and Sarah s story again WOW Elizabeth Reyes knocked me out with this one The Moreno family is a hot, intense, passionate, fiery, interesting bunch The banter between the brothers and their friend is hilarious Make no mistake, just because Angel, Sarah and their crowd are senior s in high school this is no YA book Or maybe it could be labeled VERY MATURE YA By bk 2 of this series the group are all in their early to mid twenties and any YA label can be left far behind Angel is H O T and sexy and his and Sarah s story is definitely one to re read The story makes the reader feel involved, the dialog is real and the characters make you care This series is a keeper

    What a great start to this series Sarah and Angel s story was so wonderful and beautiful I just want to hurry up and get to Alex and Valerie s story NOW so I can see them again Angle Moreno is the unattainable jock that every girl dreams about He s gorgeous, sexy, thoughtful, respectful,and responsible Oh and Hispanic, my kind of guy Having fun at school and hanging out with his friends he wasn t really looking for any kind of permanent relationship with anyone He especially never thought he would fall so hard and so fast for the new girl in school, Sarah It s Sarah s senior year and she is adjusting to so much since moving to California to live with her aunt while her mother is incarcerated back in her home town Missing her best friend Sydney like crazy she really isn t looking forward to the attending a new school Her plan is to get through the first semester at La Jolla High School until she turns eighteen in January then move back to Flagstaff and live with Sydney s family This all seems like a good idea until her relationship with Angle gets pretty serious Now she may be having second thoughts about retuning home until Angel finds out that Sydney is actually a HE and not a she Like most Hispanic I know Angle has a very huge problem with Sydney being a boy He also feels that it is impossible to have a platonic relationship with a boy and of course imagines the worst about Sarah s friendship with Syd.This series is going to be one of my favorites The Moreno brothers are very dreamy and so much fun to read I know I m going to read these book over and over again

    I made it almost halfway before giving up on this story It s engagingly written and the characters are evocative and interesting It s a strong YA romance Probably.But I can t get past Sarah Her narrow minded zeal to return home is na ve and emotionally broken Her attachment to Sydney is weird, with key parts of it unexplained like why isn t Sydney interested in the hot chick who practically lives in his pocket And the answer to the last tease in the cover copy how long can Sarah keep Angel in the dark about the guy waiting for her back home is way longer than I can tolerate and still respect her She knows it s only getting worse the longer she supports the deception And she graduated to outright deception very early And everybody who knows about it is saying the same thing that she had better tell him soon.So she s an emotionally broken coward and I find very little to engage me there and that s making it impossible to continue.But don t get me wrong This is very well written and I love the characters, primary and secondary And the banter is good and the situation complex and Sarah is young and this is exactly the kind of weakness someone figuring life out will make So I m DNFing this without prejudice i.e rating because a lot of my stopping is mood and personality based and I think a lot of people will really connect with this story and don t want to prejudice that based on my reaction.

    My God I LOVED this book It was amazing I ll stop gushing and go to the point Reading the plot you can immediately associate it with the Perfect Chemistry novels by Simone Elkeles Good Girl falls in love with Trouble Mexican boy Yes, they do share this in common but they also could have not been different Angel Main character of Forever Mine is a Mexican boy that doesn t know Spanish xD and he is a good guy, just a little bit of a Don Juan he goes out with a few lotta girls but when a girl with sad green eyes enters his life, everything changes Meet Sarah, who just came to live to La Jolla in San Diego I spend most of my time there D because of some problems her mother s in, she s determined not to get too attached to things because as soon as she can she goes back to Arizona to live with his Best Friend Sydney.But obviously things never go as planned She s soon completely and hopelessly in Love with Angel Moreno But still, there are things both have to work out and discover that it is not easy to come clean and also to forgive.Angel and Sarah s relationship goes really quick, too quick I d say I wasn t buying it, but then they date and and and some and you just can t help but thing they are PERFECT for each other The story is predictable you can tell how things are going just by the summary but it still takes some twist and turns you just don t see coming and how things unraveled is just beautiful.But I really think that what makes this novel so strong and powerful is the support characters They are all just so beautiful and unique that they all make a chain You take one out, everything breaks Eric, the voice of reason and in Angel s words dumb Romero, the one that always gets drunk and says stupid yet hilarious things in Angel s words dumber Alex, Moreno bother number 2, total flirt, hot till the ends, sparks definitely fly Sydney, Sarah s BFF and her voice of reason, he ll always have her back Valerie, fearless and she s part of Sarah s straight Sofia, she adds the spark and also becomes your best friend and of course there s Sarah, she s so much worth than what she gives credit to herself and Angel, whom is determined to show her her beauty and also he s afraid of what he feel, but is still giving it all to Sarah he can be sometimes possessive and goes into macho mode, but he learns to loosen up.If you love Romance, some romance, a little bit of romance and some romance, this is the book for you I Loved it I recommend it I gush about it I Loved it DD image error

    I am confused I liked the book in bits and pieces It is light hearted romance novel It s not bad but there is nothing breath taking about it either.SARAHSarah is either too naive or just plain stupid Everyone warned her about that coach yet she went with him alone to a secluded place I mean she almost gets herself raped by that pervert Being a damsel in distress is not cool any.Sometimes it makes sense but here it didn t I like it better when the female character is strong and can stand up for herself.She also lied to Angel about her friend She let him believe that Sydney was a girl NEWS FLASH Hiding the truth is lyingShe was scared about how he would react to it because Angel believes that a girl and a boy can never be just friends But lying is never a solution and really, so what if her best friend is a boy. Just because she is in a relationship with Angel doesn t mean he gets to decide who she can be friends with I didn t like her much I couldn t relate to her.ANGELI liked his name That s all.He started out nice but as the story progressed he got irritating He was just too insecure Possessiveness is fine It s actually romantic but there is a limit to everything.The writing is good I like how the characters are written There is depth in them Also, I liked the secondary characters so maybe I would read the other books in the series.Check Out My Blog For More Reviews.
