My POV: Making You Mine by Elizabeth Reyes

Contemporary Romance
Published December 2011 
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.--Goodreads


As always Elizabeth has blown me away! I couldn't wait to get my hands on this story and let me tell you it was so worth waiting for. Not only do we get Sal's story but like all the other books we get to see what is going on with everyone else in the series that I have fallen love with. And yes just like Elizabeth's warning label on her Facebook page I too have a tendency to fall in love with fictional characters and with hers most DEFINITELY!

Salvador "Sal" Moreno is the eldest of the Moreno brothers and the most focused and driven. He's had his share of relationships but never settle down or has fallen for anyone until Graciela Zendejas stepped into Moreno's, the family restaurant.  

Gracie is looking for a way out of her current situation. Living with a unpredictable and selfish mother she wants nothing more that to achiever her goal in life to become a great chef so that she may move her younger sister and herself away from such a destructive parent. But, being 21 and looking even younger it has proven to be very difficult to find a position as head chef in any restaurant even though she definitely has the experience and the talent to do so. 

When Gracie interviews at Moreno's with Sal she is met with doubt and apprehension. Offended by his demeanor to dismiss her so easily she informs him ardently and confidently that she is the right person for this position. Dumbfounded by her passion Sal doesn't really know what to think of her but still believes she may not be ready for such a high position in the family restaurant. Once she leave he is left with an uneasy feel that something more happen in that office than just a business decision and that when all the fun begins.

What can I say that I haven't said yet about this series. It's intense, it's sexy, it's insanely good!! It has heart racing scenes and breath taking moments. A love story to reminiscence about for a very, very long time. Just like with all the other Moreno brothers Sal's story has the highest of highs that matches the heartbreaking and gut wrenching lowest of lows. This is truly one of the best series I've ever read and I will read anything Elizabeth puts out. Guys, you don't want to miss out on this book or this series so make sure an put it on you TBR pile. I promise you will not regret it!!

"You have no idea what you do to me." Then he smiled."Hell, I don't even know how to explain it."...
"I can't explain what I'm feeling either. All I know is scares me."
"Don't be. I'm not scared." He lifted his eyebrows. "Okay, maybe a little. But it's a good kind of scared, like I just boarded the ride of my life."

 This short story is packed with so much heat, intensity, and anxiety it was nerve wrecking to read. It was so good to see Angel and Sarah again and get a glimpse/update into everyone relationship. There truly is no better feeling in the world that starting a family with the person you most love in the world and that is what this short story is all about. But like real life its not always easy.

This such a short story and I don't want to give away everything so I won't say anything else. But I will say that is mini glimpse into The Moreno Brother world is so wonderful and satisfying. It was a great way to end the series.
