Book Summary

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. 

Book Review

Rating: 4/5

Always Been Mine is a 180-degree different from the Young Adult Romance, Forever Mine. I got excited I never made a review for the first one because I was anticipating not only the shift in genre, but the romance that is budding between two commitment phobic, Alex and Valerie. We had a glimpse of these two in Sarah and Angel’s story, and now we will finally witness how their story will end.

First, unlike Forever Mine, this one is a little steamy. It was a battle of pride and self-preservation. It was cute watching them getting together. There were a lot more twists and suspense, a little more action. There were just so many things going on in this book: Alex and his alpha-male nature, Valerie and her pride, Bruce the Psycho and Luke the hopeful and of course, there’s the anal Isabel who caught Romero’s attention.  

Like the first one, Always Been Mine emphasizes on the importance of honesty, and in addition, communication in a relationship. Another thing to love about this story, is that it offers a glimpse on a previous romance, and a budding love story yet to unfold. Elizabeth Reyes is one amazing author!
