When I began writing this bunch I never dreamed that I'd fall in love with each and every one of them the way I did! I'm so ecstatic to hear that my readers now feel the same way. If you haven't already met them you HAVE to! Let me introduce you now to the main characters and for you who are already familiar with them feel free to correct me if I got anything wrong! =/
Hey guys! If there is any question you can't find the answer to about The series check out my FAQ section. I update it especially when I start getting the same question asked a lot. =) Happy reading!
FYI: It has been brought to my attention by a few of you that perhaps the order the books should be read Sweet Sofie should be BEFORE Always Been Mine. The reason? Since Sofie and Eric are childhood sweethearts in their story we go back in time and get to meet the gang when they were all just kids. There is not too much seen of Alex and Valerie. However since A & V's story takes place AFTER college you do get to see where Sofie and Eric are at that point in their lives so even though there are no actual spoilers to their story in ABM you do know how things turned out for E & S. So just in case this is something that might bother you if you have not read the series yet this might be something to take into consideration when deciding which order to read.
List of characters in series:
Main characters in order of how they are introduced in books. (I'm sure someone will correct me if I get the order wrong. LOL

And now the Books!
Forever Mine (Book #1)
Seventeen-year old Sarah’s life is turned upside down when her single mom is sent to jail. She’s forced to move, leaving behind everything she’s ever known, including her best friend Sydney. Lost and bitter in a new school, her one goal is to save money and move back home. Then she meets Angel Moreno.
Enigmatic but gorgeous, Angel is almost too good to be true. Except for one thing, his archaic belief that guys and girls can never be “just friends”. The problem? Sarah’s best friend Sydney is not a girl.
With their unexpected romance intensifying to places neither ever experienced, how long can Sarah keep Angel in the dark about the guy waiting for her back home?

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, 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.
