Publisher's 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 that 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.

Great read

I enjoyed listening to this book even with the unnecessary drama. I have a couple of eye rolls but all in all it’s a great book. Tanya did an excellent job at narrating

All Ways Delicious

These Moreno brothers are quite a bunch of alpha males. Presented through the easy-going and smooth writing of Reyes, it enhances their appeal. The sense of humor infused in the story and the sweet loving moments, all combined with a sense of family, makes this book one readers will wish they're a part of.

Not Worth the Credit, let alone the effort!

Would you try another book from Elizabeth Reyes and/or Tanya Eby?

No, I'm not interested in anymore flimpsy & transparent plots, unless or unti lthe writing style of the author matures beyond rehashing what she's already stated. I'm just not into stupid plots that go nowhere.

As for the narrator ... well, she isn't on the same level as Joyce Bean, Susan Ericksen or Carrington MacDuffie, she holds her own with this style of book.

What do you think your next listen will be?

"True Love" by Jude Deveraux

and I plan to relisten to "Betrayed by Trust" by Ana Barrons - a great new addition to my Audible library.

What three words best describe Tanya Eby’s voice?

Engaging, entertaining, humorous

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Always Been Mine?

If I could play editor and had an endless supply of red ink, I'd assume the target readership is more intelligent than a grade schooler processing the ins and outs of hopscotch. Cut out a good four hours of silly, annoying, yada, yada overwriting and the characters will come across with a higher IQ. Then this simplistic plot just might shine as a fun read.

Beefcake!

What did you like best about this story?

It was interesting to see how it all played out between these two after seeing so much of them in the first book.

Any additional comments?

I feel a little cheated, We got most of this story line in the first book the only difference was now you are being told how to feel. The writing is okay, its not HOT like some of the reviews lead me to believe, the sex is not explicit like one review said. It was a teen.young adult book. Not much to be expected just a quick read.
