Romero is the 4th book in the “Moreno Brothers” series..although technically not a Moreno he has been a fixture since book 1 as a “brother from a different mother” (not cool to say anymore apparently I’ve been told but it explains it so well, I’m obviously showing my age hahahaha)….I zoomed through this one, again could not put it down, except to go listen to a song that kept playing in my head when I read it, “Hey Jealousy” by Gin Blossoms. Credit where credit’s due, Reyes’ is AMAZING!!
Romero has had me in stitches through this series so far…a bit of a joker and a total hot-headed player…And I got to say his best mate Alex Moreno was my fave until I read Romero…I *heart* him!! He is passionate, protective, funny, says it like it is, and he has a certain vulnerability which when combined with the “hard man” image is just completely irresistible! He is REAL, he has had to work hard for what he’s got! Despite his anger issues I totally fell for him…how could you not!!?!!
I loved Izzy too, she is sweet, endearingly shy, slightly obsessive and she has an annoying snobby and arrogant sister who I wanted to slap ALOT cause she caused MAYHEM for Izzy!!! Saying that though Izzy did annoy me a couple of times because of her naivety…
Izzy is completely different to Romero which is what made their relationship work I think. They balanced each other out! And the passion….WHOA!!!!
Oh and I can’t forget Uncle Manny and Uncle Max who raised Romero – I LOVED them instantly, they were so funny!!!
I am seriously loving being in the world of the Moreno’s and I am straight onto Sal’s story now cause I need to know what happens to the quiet brooding oldest brother, well that’s how I see him – for now anyway!
I love how all the characters from book one are present and developing in each book…so need to know what happens there too :0)
