5.0 out of 5 stars Moreno Brothers, book 4, 22 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Romero (The Moreno Brothers ) (Kindle Edition)
Romero is book 4, and focuses on non-Moreno Romero. Though he is not a member of the family, he is involved in every book so far and Angel's best friend.

This is my favourite book of the bunch. Romero has developed in each book, starting off as the idiot, drunken friend of Angel he becomes a good friend and helps Alex in book two with his own security business and has begun a relationship with Isabel, book three reflects on his childhood, along with the rest of the characters and again, shows him as the idiot (in a nice way). He has major anger issues in this book, yes, but it does not make him unlikable in my opinion. He has one "iffy" moment with Isabel, who would probably have been best excluded but there we go.

We meet his "respectable" uncles Manny & Max who have raised him and I sincerely hope they get a book of their own at some point (especially with how it ended with the wedding seating plan), they are hilariously funny and I immediately loved them.

Isabel, as we discovered in book two, is a shy, sophisticated, house proud teacher and opposite of Romero. This book replays their entire relationship, including the bits we discovered in book two but obviously from their point of view.

Her family are "interesting", sister Pat is just an awful character who more than gets a good slap from the karma fairy at the end where Romero finally goes from being "Satan" in her family's eyes to the hero, or at least half decent guy.

I enjoyed how different the two of them are and how that did make their relationship difficult, though I did feel for Romero and being made to feel like he wasn't good enough, which in turn does justify him being a little riled up now and again.

Although we have a cheating accusation element (again), I still really enjoyed it. We get glimpses back to the past characters and how they are progressing in their marriages and lives and by now, it really does feel like being in Moreno world and I love Elizabeth Reyes' writing style of creating that and making her characters feel alive with their continued development and progressing lives in each book.
