Book Talk Review; Sweet Sofie

 Elizabeth gives us another fantastic romance is Sweet Sofie (The Moreno Brothers #3)

 
 
 Her entire life, Sofia Moreno has dealt with overbearing brothers. With her three older brothers always lurking, no boy would dare reach out to her. Luckily for Sofia, the one boy she's got her heart set on has always been within reach: her brother's best friend Eric, even though his loyalty to her brothers runs deep. Sofia knows there is only so much he can do before giving in to her.

 Two years older than her, Eric Diego has always known there would be hell to pay if he messed with his best friend's kid sister, Sofia. Through the years, he watches as she blooms into a beautiful young lady right before his eyes. With teenage hormones raging and Sofia more than willing, Eric agrees to the unthinkable: a forbidden secret romance. Feeling emotions and a feverish passion that's new to them both, neither is ready for how quickly their romance spins out of control.

 YA Mature/ New Young Adult
 
 Here's a short expert that goes along with the amazon Synopsis:
 
 Sofia pulled out the whip cream bottle and
walked over to the pie in front of him. She squirted some on it, then some in
her mouth, licked her lips and smiled, wickedly. Those big eyes of hers seemed
to taunt him so much lately.

 At seventeen, Eric
had no control over his raging hormones. He panicked, feeling the development
in his pants. If Mrs. Moreno or anyone walked in, there'd be no way he could
stand up without it being noticeable.

 Sofia giggled, and squirted a little more in
her mouth again.

 "Sofie." Eric glanced
around. "Stop."

 "Stop what?" Those
big innocent eyes appeared genuinely confused.

 "That." He pointed
at the can of whip cream in her hand, then tried, unsuccessfully, to adjust
himself in his pants. "I'm not gonna to be able to walk for a while thanks to
you. You better hope no one comes in here."

 He'd never said
anything of that nature to her, but things felt different lately. It took a
second to register, but when it did, instead of blushing like Eric thought she
might, she smiled again. She squirted some on the tip of her finger, then
slowly, licked it clean. Eric squeezed his eyes shut, sitting up straight. "You
evil little girl."

 Sofia laughed and walked back toward the
refrigerator. "In case you haven't noticed, I'm not a little girl anymore,
Eric."

 "Oh, I've
noticed." Had he ever.

 She turned and
smiled. "Good, now can you please tell my brothers that?"

 Good luck. They
all still spoke of her, and treated her, as if she was this fragile little
flower. The only good thing about that was it kept the guys away. Guys he knew
had to be watching and waiting.
 
 Eric Diego... sigh, Elizabeth is the kind of author who knows how to write a hot sweet sexy guy. Eric is more mellow that Angel and Alex, but he is still a hot and sexy Alpha male. 

 Eric has been in love with Sofia since they were kids, but she is his best friend's little sister... off limits due to her over protective brothers; of course that means that she is off limits to all the other guys too, so thats a win.
 
 Sofia has only ever had eyes on Eric; and when she knows he has the same feelings for her, they begin a secret romance, something her brothers would forbid if they ever found out.
 
 But as soon as she turns seventeen  she is allowed one thing; a boyfriend, and there is only one candidate in mind. Eric.
 
 But of course things soon turn rocky...
 
 Eric's dad ends up getting him an internship in L.A. that's two hours away from La Jolla... And from Sofie

 OF course they try to make it work and that works for a while but it is hard for both of them. 

 Eric and Sofia are in love with each other, that is obvious from the beginning. The way they look, they way the speak, the way they act. It isn't hard to see that they are in love right from the beginning.

 It is like they were made to be together... of course there is a few things that happen in between before they get their happily ever after.

 Like Brandon Billings, the neighbor hood boy that they grow up with and has a crush on Sofie.

 And the fact that Eric ends up going to Spain for an internship... SPAIN!

 Eric and Sofie have a strained relationship during that time, and it looks like they might not get there happily ever after during some of it.

 It was so stressful for both of them... it was stressful to read. Here are these characters that you know are meant to be together, and they are countries away and aren't at the best terms... 

 Like all of Elizabeth's books Sweet Sofie is an amazing sweet romance with hot sexy alpha males and relate-able sweet loveable female characters. 
 
 *Quote- "I'm over it now, but I'll never be over you. I was stupid to think I could ever be over you." - Eric Diego
 
 Catch me on Saturday when I finish the Moreno Brothers with #4 Romero, and #5 Making You Mine
 
 
 

*Notice- Saturday I will finish up with The Moreno Brothers, since I have yet to read Forever Yours (#1.5) I will jump into the Fate Series on Tuesday.... Then on Saturday February 8th I will Start in on The 5th Street Series... This is fun, I love Elizabeth and I can't think of a better way to express it then to spend ten days talking about her awesome books!

Book Talk Review; Always Been Mine

 The Moreno Brothers book 2 Always Been Mine, If you loved Angel Moreno in Forever Mine, Be Prepared to fall hopelessly in love and affection with the hot sexy and totally alpha male Alex Moreno...

 
 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.

 ADULT contemporary romance
 Wow. That pretty much sums up my thought process when I think of Alex Moreno, we see him a little in Forever Mine, he is Angle's older Brother, and we also see a little about the relationship that he has with Valerie.
 But we really don't know anything besides that. We don't see how sweet and caring and kinda Alex really is especially with Valerie, and we don't really see that much who he really is, besides just a very big very handsome alpha male. 
 They are complete opposites, Valerie is this cute small petite little thing, and Alex is this huge tough buff guy. 
 They fit together so well that it works. And we all know that all the Morenos are sexy and good-looking, and have you seen this cover? If that is what the real Alex Moreno looks like hell yeah I don't blame Valerie for wanting him way back in high-school.
 After a on again, off again relationship, Valerie finally cuts Alex off for good and has no contact with him for a year. 
 Then at Angel and Sarah's Wedding Shower they are forced to come in contact... and come in contact they do, they end up sharing a amazing kiss. And realize they are so Not over each other.
That is where their blissful romance starts.
 Alex clears up What Really Happened the night that Valerie broke things off for good. 
 We also see other guys trying to get in Val's good graces... something that doesn't go over well with the protective Alex.

 If you thought that Angel was protective of Sarah in Forever Mine get ready to rethink that in Always Been Mine. Also Alex has a temper on him that falls into the whole Alpha male thing as well.

 Someone that Valerie came in contact with in the past year becomes dangerous and threatens her...

 There are scary parts in this book. There is one big scary part in the book and everyone, the reader, the characters are all affected by it. My heart literally stopped and I was l freaking out...

Alex and Valerie are great together and it is like they were meant to be together. I talk about them as if they are real people because to me as a reader they are, they take on this life inside me and I can only imagine what Elizabeth feels when she writes these characters that we love.

 This is an Adult Contemporary Romance so take note with younger audiences because there are situations that are deemed inappropriate  for them 

 I love this series and Can't wait until I get my hands on Forever Yours (1.5) Angel and Sarah's college years.



I'll see Ya'll Thursday for Sweet Sofie Book Talk

*Notice- Because of the schedule change and the fact that I only do Book Talks three days a week now, and that I have read 11 out of Elizabeth's 12 books it will take up more time than usual to do them... but thats okay because Elizabeth is awesome and her books need to be appreciated! <3

Book Talk Review; Forever Mine

 Forever Mine; book 1 in The Moreno Brothers series...

 
 
 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?
 
 This book is the first in its series and what a way to start off a series (all the books can be read as stand-alones but it is best to read them in order)

So Sarah moves in with her aunt and uncle and starts school with her cousin Valerie. There she meets Angel Moreno.. *sigh* Angel is hot and sexy and a total alpha

 Angel and Sarah start off a romance that is sweet and sexy and Just ahh

 Angel is hot and sexy and protective, but his view on guys and girls being friends is a big factor in this book.. Sarah's best friend is a guy and she doesn't tell Angel that right away.

 Actually it is quiet explosive when he does find out and I just Cried and cried when that scene came up.

 *Note- Just because I cry during some books does not mean that everyone will.. I am just an emotional reader who cries at EVERYTHING But there are some books that you will cry to and some you won't... this just happens to be one of those books that I did because I am a weirdo...
 
So I read this book a while ago... I forget exactly when but it was when it first came out, and then I did a reread of the series but that was a while ago too.  But I remember almost everything I read...which is why I rarely do rereads unless the book is like Epic (like when it happened with The Sea of Tranquility which i reread weeks after reading it the first time) Or i just get bored and pick something that calls out to me... which is why i never get anything done.

So some parts are a bit blurry for me but I do remember parts that stuck out or major points... i remember everything but forget little details... but not often do i forget... in most books I can recite whole lines, sometimes i mix up a few words but i get them right. 

 Like the fact that Sarah's cousin Valerie is a small petite blonde who can eat as much as the big buff  Alex Moreno (Their book is #2 Always Been Mine)

I also remember what a fucking bitch this whore Dana is, her and Angel messed around in the past and she tries to get to Angel and tries to piss off Sarah... fucking whore tramp slut-bag bitch...
 
 You can guess that Sarah being friends with Sydney doesn't go over well with Angel. But of course they can't be apart because love always wins in the end.
 
*Quote- "He always felt like an untamed animal around Sarah, but lately it was different. She was all he ever thought about now, and any time away from her felt too long. Angel closed his eyes and kissed her. Then the words came without warning. 'I love you, Sarah'" - Angel Moreno
 
 Aww I love Angel and his 'untamed animalness' 
 
Right now Forever Mine is FREE!!! So Go out and Buy it!!!
 

Tune in Tuesday for a New Book Talk Author and the Always Been Mine Book Talk (#2 in Moreno Brothers Series!)



this book had its funny parts and its emotional parts and its wtf parts and its omg parts...
