Book Summary

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? 

Book Review

Rating: 5/5

Forever Mine is a delightful story of first love, first heartache, first everything. Elizabeth Reyes made the bad-boy-gets-good-girl familiar story line into something else. It was funny and sweet, uncomplicated and straightforward.

I was fascinated with every character. Even the secondary characters were great, they were so much fun and brings humor to the story. I was easily caught up in their lives. They are surprisingly well-mannered and grounded. Parents and guardians were barely present and they seemed to have little involvement and supervision, but in some household this can be a normal occurrence.

Although, the lead characters, Sarah and Angel fell in love almost at first sight, the story made a few remarkable twists. I was a bit disturbed with Sarah’s relationship with Sydney. I always believe that boys and girls can be friends without anything attached to it, but their relationship made me cringe. I have a boy best friend, and I couldn’t recall telling him the THREE words. I love the emphasis on honesty, and how important it is even to young lovers.

I love Forever Mine and I couldn’t stop turning the pages. This book may not have the most beautiful cover as some YAs do, but I assure you it is worth your time. I decided to finish all the Moreno Brothers series before making all my reviews – I had my momentum going on and I would die before I’d stop reading them all. Forever Mine is my second favorite story in the series, guess what’s the first?
