- Forever Mine (The Moreno Brothers)
on Aug. 02, 2011
Forever Mine offers an intense and slightly possessive love story that romance fanatics will love. The story begins will Sarah’s life crumbling around her. As her mother is carted off to prison; she is forced to leave everything and everyone that she knows. Everyone includes her best friend Syndey. With every intention of returning Sarah succumbs moving in with her cousin and starting a new school. Everyday carries a sole purpose of attending school and making enough money to return; or that is until she meets Angel Moreno. Angel is an awesome character, but yet extremely protective and mildly possessive. It is nothing like abuse or controlling, but touchy about whom Sarah interacts with that is of the male persuasion. Although, these qualities are quite fitting for Sarah character; changing the readers impressions of these action to something more attractive. Sarah life has had very little consistency, other than that of her best friend, and she welcomes someone that always watches out for her. As the romance increases Sarah is conflicted, because Angel is very forthcoming with this protectiveness making it clear that he would be less than comfortable with the knowledge that Sydney just happens to be a guy. After many occasions where Angel verbalizes his opinions that guys and girls “can’t be just friends”, she is thrown into a gulley of lies to protect her friendship and her growing love for Angel. Reyes offers a bitter sweet romance that will keep readers hanging on every page. Be aware that this novel should be directed more toward the mature YA audience due to its sexual content. The story will carries a extremely fast pace, and with its addictive story readers will find themselves flying through the pages. Reyes talented writing promises for excellent read, and will leave readers craving more. The next book in this series Forever Yours takes Angels brother through yet another mouth watering romance. I look forward to reading the remainder of this series. Be ready for a powerful story and the promise of love that will stand the test of time.

Earth is a very fresh read that mixes a young adult romance and imaginative magical twist. While witchcraft has been a common experience in the paranormal genre; this book seems to take on a deeper understanding of their abilities and beliefs. Much of this story is detail and character building which gives the story an overall slower pace than what I have come to expect. Although, I feel that this novel laid a very strong basis for the following books to come. The potential is evident in the last eighty pages when the story began to flow and the characters were actively unraveling the mystery laid before them. This also opened the door for the romance that seemed to be missing in the beginning of this novel. The amateur talent that is so common in a first novel was lacking in Earth; creating a detail ridden story that attempts to bring readers to the characters level of knowledge. I look for the next novel to overcome is slow and steady pace bringing an action packed and thrilling ride. Earth is a very inventive and unique story that readers will appreciate, but it will offer some pace and interest obstacles that will require focus to overcome.
- Heart on a Chain
on Aug. 02, 2011
Heart on a Chain is another heart stopping story about a young girl surviving a life of abuse at the hands of her own mother. This story is a horrifying realization about what such a life experience entails. Kate was a typical child until life changes result in a broken home that proves a danger everyday. The romance for Kate and Henry is bitter sweet, and a calming addition for such a brutal novel. With a stolen kiss in middle school and love across time this story offer a tragic story with a smooth happy ending. Beginning slowly I was concerned at first if this story would carry me through, but a short struggle was relieved as the story picks up in intensity and pace. While this is a story based on the darkness and secrets; I love her ability to highlight the good. Kate begins reminiscing on the past shows what a truly remarkable person Henry was and is. When the story turns, and their love builds I see the writer focusing on the good of Kate character without directly highlighting the comparison of these two people. Amazingly, two people from completely different backgrounds have managed to become people with quite similar morals and ethics. Understandably, Henry’s values can be a result of such a loving and inspiring family. It was easy to see the attraction Kate carries for not only Henry, but also for his entire family. Especially that unique and witty Grandpa Henry. This character was a shining gem in this book; that readers will love during his short role. Altogether the story is a memorable read and eye opening experience for readers. It would be a very good experience for the young adult readers it has targeted.
