    What s worse than reading a corny, predictable romance novel Reading a corny, predictable romance novel about an abusive pig and his clueless, irrational girlfriend Always Been Mine begins roughly three years after the ending of Forever Mine Valerie Zuniga catches her on again off again boyfriend, Alex Moreno, entering his house with a scantily clad co ed carrying an overnight bag She is enraged, confronts the cheating bastard and storms off, refusing to listen to any of his lies Alex swears up and down that the girl is just a tutor which Valerie, of course, does not believe End of relationship Cut to one year later Alex s younger brother, Angel, and Valerie s cousin, Sarah, are getting married Since Alex and Valerie are both in the wedding party, they can avoid each other no longer I m sure you can guess where things go from there What I m willing to bet you can t guess is how unbelievably ridiculous things get Do you know what pisses me off than anything else in a story When characters actively refuse to communicate with each other Is it a way to keep the story from unfolding too quickly Sure Is it lazy as all hell and completely uninspired Pretty much Despite Valerie s vehement refusal to listen to anything Alex has to say, she does eventually cave and let him explain himself They are back together before the book is even halfway over OK, they re relieved and happy now, and they ve learned their lesson about not communicating with each other Right WRONG In the twelve months between her break up with Alex and when they finally get back together, Valerie has managed to acquire a violent stalker and a boss who has a crush on her She casually dates the boss, thinking it might help her get over Alex, but then breaks things off after an embarrassing bedroom incident in which she calls him Alex Whoopsie doodle Her stalker, Bruce, who was serving a three year sentence for brandishing a kitchen knife in the general direction of his wife, has been released from prison after only nine months and is now back in Valerie s life, texting, calling, showing up out of the blue Every communication from Bruce alludes to the fact that he believes Valerie owes him for ruining his life when Valerie found out Bruce was married, she told his wife Bruce s idea of payment Sex Of course What else could it possibly be Valerie is, after all, completely irresistible Despite the knowledge that Bruce is a complete whackadoo, Valerie refuses to believe he s any real threat So her bright idea is to completely downplay the entire situation Oh, there s this guy I used to date harassing me, BUT IT S NO BIG I m sure he s just playing around What Oh, what was he in prison for Wellll Valerie will not be winning any prizes which reflect her intellect any time soon When Alex catches wind of Valerie s predicament with Bruce, he goes into Knight in Shining Armor Mode, telling Valerie she needs to be careful, following her around, eventually hiring his friend Romero who owns a security firm, conveniently to have someone follow Valerie to make sure she s safe And the hilarity ensues Valerie goes on living her life as if nothing is amiss, only occasionally worrying about Bruce Her occasional run ins with her boss whom she has to see on a fairly regular basis since he is, you knowher boss are reported back to Alex, who becomes increasingly worried about their relationship I didn t think anyone could top Angel Moreno s obsessive, controlling behavior in Forever Mine, but big brother Alex definitely wins the award for most controlling, jealous literary douchebag At one point, Luke Valerie s boss drives her from the office to the hospital after she receives a call that her father has collapsed Alex has been informed that not only has Luke taken Valerie to the hospital, but that Valerie also met Luke that morning and the previous morning for breakfast without gasp telling Alex SAINTS PRESERVE US These people, fictional though they are, piss me off So what does super hunk do He rushes to the hospital, sees Luke rubbing Valerie s neck, and blows his steroid fueled smokestack Yes, her father has possibly had a stroke and there Mr Romantic is, screaming at her in the hospital about her relationship with her boss Smooth move, Ex Lax It s at this point that the fact that Alex has been having Valerie followed comes out and she thinks that Alex had someone dig up dirt on her and Luke because, even though she never had sex with Luke, she did spend the night at his house once and Alex knows about it She is disgusted with his behavior, disgusted, and feels totally violated Alex actually got that particular tidbit from stalker Bruce, but he doesn t get the chance to explain that to Valerie until a couple of days later because Ms Reyes apparently decided the drama needed to be stretched to maximum length Are you getting a pretty good idea of the general tone of this book Dainty girl who s supposed to be independent and strong is really nothing than an idiot who puts herself in danger merely because she doesn t want to trouble anyone else with her problems, and her controlling boyfriend can t offer much besides a caveman attitude and a large penis Those Moreno boys Absolutely captivatingMy pick for most infuriating scene in the entire story Hands down, the pseudo bachelorette party Valerie, her roommate Isabel, Sarah, and Alex s younger sister, Sofia, have all gone out for a little girl time the night before the wedding Alex gets a call from Stalker Bruce and Stalker Bruce tells Alex he s watching the ladies This, of course, sends Alex, Angel, Eric who s dating Sofia , and Romero who s dating Isabel into fits and they take to the cell phones, texting and calling to make sure their womenses are OK Yes, I said womenses Typing that sentence, I got a mental image of four burly idiots jumping around with cell phones, trashing an office and screeching like howler monkeys But I digressAlex calls Valerie and tells her about Stalker Bruce Warns her to keep the windows and doors locked, not to go outside, etc Valerie agrees, then tells Alex she won t tell the other girls because she doesn t want Sarah to worry unnecessarily the night before her wedding Cough I think the imminent threat of being stabbed to death by an obsessive stalker is something you should probably worry about Maybe that s just meThe big manly men haven t told any of the other girls about Bruce, but they do keep checking in with their breeders, making sure Bruce hasn t slashed them to bits Sofia and Isabel, thinking it s all fun and games, decide to confiscate all cell phones, declaring that they are going to ignore all the texts and calls from the guys Valerie knows nothing will send Alex and the rest of team Scooby on a bitch hunt faster than not getting answers to repeated calls and texts, so she attempts to surreptitiously grab her cell and text Alex quickly that all is well She of course does this by shimmying sexily over to the end table while the girls dance around.because, you know, when women get together and there s alcohol involved, we have nothing better to do but dance seductively for one another We have pillow fights in our jam jams, too Anyway, Valerie is caught trying to text by Sofia, who then takes all the cell phones and shoves them into her purse, giggling the whole time It was at this point that I was tempted to get out my Walther.380 and end it all Imagine my shock, then, when it actually got worse Valerie, with what I m sure she thought was a sheer stroke of genius, decides to go out to her car, get her laptop, and email Alex Yup, crazy, homicidal stalker following her around and she just pops out to her car real quick after dark It s at this point that the studs show up, clucking like crazed chickens because their bitches haven t been minding their leashes I was going to try and finish this review with a detailed explanation of what happens, but I just don t think I can do it I still have one of Ms Reyes books to review and things haven t gotten any better I did promise that future reviews would deal a bit with Sofia, the youngest Moreno sibling, and while she isn t in this book a whole lot, there is one scene which gave me pause When the girls first start mentioning having a sleepover, Sofia gets very excited and says she never went to a sleepover when she was a kid One could assume it just sort of happened that way, but no, we hear through Valerie s inner dialogue that the reason Sofia never got to go to sleepovers was because of her brothers overprotective attitudes Mmhmm On top of the fact that the story is silly, the drama forced and illogical, it s also just plain badly written The grammatical issues first encountered in Forever Mine are still present in Always Been Mine Typos I can forgive, to a point, but this is than typos Ms Reyes can t seem to grasp simple concepts like the difference between worse and worst The two are continually interchanged, with worse being used when worst would have been correct and vice versa Typos are bad enough since they can and should be caught and remedied during re reads, but someone who considers themselves a serious author not understanding the simplest of concepts is both infuriating and insulting In summary, Always Been Mine is one of those books that s OK to waste a little time on as long as you re OK with a bad story and bad writing I find myself enjoying terrible books because it helps polish my own writing skills as I contemplate the kind of review I m going to write I m just glad I didn t spend money on this one.

    I m not even going to bother with an in depth review I read the first half and skimmed the second Most of the book was boring, even when I got to the part where there was supposed to be some sort of conflict I found the entire character of Luke to be completely unnecessary and his parts seemed like they were only stalling the reader, while we waited for something to happen later The only reason I didn t give one star is because I wasn t necessarily upset over anything I just found my mind wandering because I wasn t interested.It s strange that I enjoyed the 5th Street series but haven t connected with the Moreno Brothers, especially considering that both series have similar character backgrounds Note At the time of writing this review, the first 5th Street book Noah was free for Kindle US.Because I m interested to see how Sophie s book will be handled one little sister having to deal with 3 overprotective brothers This could get messy and or interesting , I ll probably continue with the series Normally, I d throw in the towel after stumbling through two weak books, but since I know that Reyes books can be good, I ll just consider the first couple of the Moreno Brothers a time of trial and error.

    Ok it s almost 6 AM, so I am not even going to try for a coherent review right now, I just want to get some thoughts down before I pass out and forget something looks at all the 4 and 5 star reviews My god, did we really read the same book First off editing Horrible Missing commas, run on sentences, even a couple of words that I don t think really exist blaringly obvious I think she meant glaringly Alex s body Chiseled Rock solid Sculptured Hard Delectable Strong Bulging muscles Massive Very impressive Beautiful Muscled We get it The guy is built He s also way over the top on the possessive scale Plotting a way to get her to leave her job, simply because she used to date her boss Even though she swore it was never serious Hiring a guy to act as a bodyguard because she has a stalker, but not telling her about it Slut shaming The guys can t have a bachelor party in Vegas because no way do the women want their men around money grabbing whores WTF Misunderstandings So stupid He d rather let her, and everyone else, think he was screwing other girls in college, rather than tell the truth, that he was behind on his school work, and had hired a tutor Ok, there s pride, then there s downright stupidity Of course, he did try to tell her the truth the night she caught him with his tutor, but she refused to listen to him She was so sure he was sleeping around, she jumped to the wrong conclusion about everything and wouldn t listen to him, even a year later, til he finally MADE her let him explain.And then there s Valerie She knows Alex is the jealous possessive type She stays with him anyway, but she keeps not telling him stuff Big stuff that she knows he ll take the wrong way if he doesn t hear it from her first Does she tell him No She keeps talking with Luke, the boss Having breakfast and lunch meetings with him, letting him come to her apartment Is this smart I think not If you re going to commit to being with a jealous guy, you have to take his feelings into effect before you do stupid shit.She and Alex both know there s a stalker after her He made threats to her on a particular night the night before Sarah and Angel s wedding The girls all want to do a girl s night in, drink, and play Truth no one felt very daring apparently Valerie knows how worried Alex is She knows there s a stalker out there She knows he was following them THAT NIGHT But she lets the other girls confiscate ALL the phones because the guys keep calling and checking on them Doesn t insist on them letting her at least text Alex that she can t talk Doesn t tell them she has a crazy stalker who just might show up tonight, a crazy stalked who mentioned two of them by name Instead, when she knows there s a stalker out there she SNEAKS OUT OF THE HOUSE ALONE, to get her laptop out of the car to email him It really would have served her right, if she had been grabbed Stupid stupid stupid.I know these people are supposed to be in their 20s, but often than not, if felt like a typical high school story, only without the high school They didn t act like mature adults, college graduates It just felt.juvenile.But in spite of all this the author DID tell a good story I finished the first book, and figured that was it I wasn t interested in reading any But they kept getting good reviews, so I kept picking them up And this one did pull me right in I read it all in one sitting And in spite of all the freaking eye rolling moments, bad editing, and new words I learned, I still kinda want to read Sofie and Eric, Romero and Isabel, and Sal and whoever s stories.But I ll give this one time to fade in my memory a bit first, just like I let a year pass between reading the first one and reading this one.

    I hope I m not developing a habit because I ve always read every book from the beginning to the end and tried really hard to finish it no matter what, but I really couldn t make myself finish this book Since I spent many hours browsing the internet, searching for the books by Elizabeth Reyes because the blurbs for the books reminded me of Fuentes brothers like every other Goodreader and I was desperately trying to get my hands on them, I was very dissapointed when I started with Always Been Mine I couldn t find a proper Forever Mine version so I skipped to book 2 The beginning was shabby and so was the rest of the. first half of the book I managed to get through We ve all heard and read about a guy and a girl who lacked conversational skills and f d they relationship up by letting a missunderstanding come between them and of course, seperate them Only this was such a poor example of what happens next Really bad execution as far as I m concerned I was baffeled by how sick Valerie and Alex s relation was He loves her, moping and brooding all day long, his heart skipping a beat whenever Valerie s name comes up in a conversation or whenever he sees her And why did they break up Did he cheat on her No Did she cheat on him Noo Did. I dunno, he beat her up or threaten to kill her favourite cartoon character No Something even absurd view spoiler Valerie saw Alex with his TUTOR, assumed she was his lover and promptly left the building, refusing to let Alex explain And that dumbass was too ashamed that he needed tutors to help him with his school stuff that he just let her assume whatever she was assuming That he was cheating on her with other women For Pete s sake, if I could, I d kick Alex s behind so hard he d instantaneously be cured of his temporary stupidity hide spoiler

    I devoured Always been mine, it was intense, fast paced and completely addictive I have to say sigh Alexhotheaded, intense, alpha, protective, possessive and so very yummyReyes sure knows how to write her male characters Always Been Mine is once again written from both characters perspective and I LOVE that Also I LOVE that Sarah, Angel, Eric, Sofia Romero are so involved in it because they are such a big part of why I love this series so far I ve got to say though that I have a sneaky feeling that Alex will be my overall fave cause he HAS IT ALL Total CAM I loved that we got this story a few years later when Alex and Val were older and that we have been with them since their first real interaction This made the ride that much intense and the realization of true love and belonging, the yummy moments alongside the dramatic story line of Bruce made Always Been Mine a fabulous book

    Great second book in this series Where the first one was a sweet teenage, low heat, romance, this was taken to a different level, and very enjoyable Terrific chemistry between Alex and Valerie, and the secondary romance with Romero really added to the overall story I liked that the focus was not only on Alex and Valerie, but the characters we loved from the first book were brought in to the mix and we got a taste of where they were in their lives My only complaint was the issue with Luke, it seemed to be resolved and it just went on and on It got old for me and little repetitious Other than that, a great story with a sweet epilogue I am really looking forward to Sophie s novella and Sal s bookI think he has a lot to tell.

  7. says:

    Not as good as Forever Mine but still a really great read I can t wait for Sal s story and Sofia s novella.

    such an awesome story there were only a few things that bothered me about it but I m pretty sure its cuz I m zoo picky about, romance timing but besides that it was great Alex is the alpha male i love He knows what he wants,, when he realize s it and goes after it Val has been in love with Alex for years. On and off the couple was for a while and then she catches him with a girl at his house and breaks it off A year later their paths cross for Sarah and Angels wedding Val is determined to keep away from Alex and Alex isn t having it. and the plot only thickens when Val s history comes to light and things start to get dangerous.From beginning to end, i was completely into the book Yelling a few times and embarrassed as well for the characters, especially my girls Alex and Val s relationship had me at ends. like good stories, its sooo irritating when two characters are mad and not talking thus the relationship falling apart but as the reader your aware of the reasons and your screaming at them, to talk to each other and tell them to just say it..LOL i literally had to walk a way a few times and calm down. lol it was GREAT I love the family setting the plot of the story was great and i loved how Sarah n Angel where still apart of the book, it only makes me want to read the next one .if you enjoyed Forever Mine, you ll love this one

    Val and Alex s story was so intense and so passionate my heart is still racing It is so much fun reading this series because I have fallen in love with all of the characters The interaction, horse playing, and relationships between everyone feels so genuine You can tell they really love and care for each other I felt that this story is a lot intense than Forever Mine because Alex is so intense His presents, his feelings for Val, his responsibility to keeping the family business doing well these are all things he tackles with great intensity So when he find out that Valerie has a stalker he handles that with the same determination and no holds barred intensity But that still might not be enough to save Val Bruce, Valerie s stalker is relentless in his pursuit to getting what he wants from Val It s terrifying.Valerie is so strong headed and independent she won t let anyone of anything get in her way of becoming successful in any part of her life I have loved her no nonsense, no bullshit attitude scent the first book She lives her life with a grab the bull by its horns motto but not when it come to Alex She learned to hold herself back and approach with caution when it comes to him because he has proven in the past that he can t be trust He crushed her heart with there past relationship being so rocky and Val not knowing what he was up to or who he was with when he would take off for days at a time It is so much fun being in the Moreno s world I can t wait to get details from Sofie s story which I m starting now.see you in my next review

    LOVE this series Always Been Mine was amazing and I think I liked it than Forever Mine Squeal Always Benn Mine is the story of Alex Moreno and Valerie The story is different from Forever Mine, while Forever Mine was on Angle and Sarah falling in love Always Been Mine focusing on Valerie not wanting to be in love with Alex and some other issues in their relationship They sort of get into this Here We Go Again relationship which, to my surprise and delight was not tedious at all I was looking forward to all of their encounters and at times was at the edge of my seat.What I most Love about this series is that they are Highly filled with romance but still Elizabeth Reyes manages to add suspense that gives me Goosebumps Think stalker Think really creepy stalker This Novel will not disappoint Hot Moreno Brothers, desire and romance that turns the hear up, A novel completely deserving of its title I Loved it image error
