Have you gals met The Moreno Brothers yet? Elizabeth Reyes’ Moreno Brothers Series is one of the best series about Family that I have ever read! As an American of Mexican heritage myself, I am very fond of my culture. Latinos have a very beautiful culture, many of us are passionate by nature and most of us are very close to our families. So when a book comes around that depicts our culture with care, love and in a positive light, I can’t help but appreciate it so much.

The Moreno boys and their friends remind me the boys I grew up with. They say and do things that remind me of the man I married. The Moreno Family reminds me of my own family; a very close knit unit that loves and supports one another in all things. These boys are Alpha Male! They are so funny, sweet, passionate and romantic all without realizing they are. They are some of my favorite male characters. These books are so fun!

I will introduce you to the Moreno’s & friends (in book order)

The series starts off with the youngest brother Angel in Forever Mine. (Summaries provided by Amazon.com)

When her head was screaming “enough,” her hopeful heart continued to whisper “wait.”

It’s the only way Valerie Zuniga can justify her ongoing addiction to the amazing but ever, elusive Alex Moreno. Mesmerized by the profound connection neither has ever quite understood, Valerie accepts their crazy relationship for what it is—non-exclusive.

That is until the incredible highs no longer numb the sting of the intense lows.

As tasteless and slippery as pride can be, for Alex it’s always been the hardest pill to swallow.

Faced with a final ultimatum, the choice is a no-brainer for Alex. Despite his insanely busy life he’s determined to prove to Valerie, that not only is he ready to commit, it’s what he’s always wanted—to claim Valerie as his exclusively.

But just as it kept him from admitting his real feelings all those years, will his obstinate pride once again step in and ruin things just when they’re finally getting it right?

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.

Romero by: Elizabeth Reyes (Adult Contemporary Romance)

Prim and proper middle school teacher Isabel Montenegro always runs the opposite direction from men like Ramon Romero. A foul-mouthed, uneducated, loose cannon has no place in her careful plans. But instead of running away, Isabel is completely captivated. The intensity of his nature, while a bit daunting, mesmerizes her in ways she can’t begin to understand. She’s unwilling to walk away—even when her instincts are screaming at her to run.

Romero has no idea what he’s getting himself into when he first kisses Isabel. Shocked at the passion she invokes in him, he believes he can keep his usual short fuse under wraps. Falling fast and hard for someone so flawlessly sweet only makes him more aware that he’s far from perfect. If she is ever witness to his biggest imperfection, he’s sure she’ll bail. But when her meddling sister does the worst thing imaginable—bring other men between him and his Izzy—that fuse is lit and all bets are off.

Making You Mine  by: Elizabeth Reyes (Adult Contemporary Romance)

MakingYouMine-large

Always in control, the meticulous and professional Salvador Moreno is thrown for a loop when the newly hired bartender Grace Zendejas suddenly invades his family’s restaurant, and infuriatingly, his every thought. For the first time in his life, Sal is fumbling. But after recovering from a few blunders he discovers his feelings for Grace run much deeper.

Things begin to heat up between him and Grace, but then the ever-perfect Sal does something even his brothers never did—screws up royally. Now he’s scrambling to cover up a mistake he knows could cost him dearly. As his relationship with Grace grows even more serious, Sal’s secret is a ticking bomb, threatening to destroy the one thing he now lives and breathes for—his relationship with the love of his life—Grace.

Tangled: A Moreno Brothers Novella 5.5
by Elizabeth Reyes

tangled erJust when Romero thought he’d conquered his anger issues…

Now that Izzy has earned her credentials to teach at a college level, Romero is doing his best to be supportive. Even after she informs him she won’t be teaching.

She’ll be assisting a professor—a recently divorced professor whom she’ll work with side by side.

Isabel loves being home with her kids, but she’s ready to get back to her career—back to a world where she can enjoy some in-depth political conversations with someone who really gets it. The brilliant Political Science professor she’s assigned to assist seems to be the perfect fit.

But when those conversations get a little personal, Isabel isn’t sure if she’s just being silly or if the professor is sending insidiously veiled messages.

Romero’s knack for picking up on her unease only complicates things, especially because Isabel also has a big Christmas surprise for him. With suspicions awakened, Romero’s interpretation of Isabel’s sneakiness stirs that dormant rage he hasn’t had to deal with in years, and emotions become furiously Tangled.

 If you’re a sucker for Latin Lovers (like me), then these are the books you have been waiting for!

I had the pleasure of meeting Elizabeth Reyes a few years ago at Book Bash.  She was very nice and I hope to meet up with her again someday.
