Series: The Moreno Brothers #3
Her entire life Sofia Moreno has dealt with her overprotective brothers. With three overbearing brothers always lurking, no boy would dare reach out to her. Luckily for Sofia the one boy she's got her heart set on has always been within reach: her brothers best friend Eric. Even though his loyalty to her brothers runs deep, Sofia knows there is only so much he can do before giving in to her.
Two years older than her, Eric Diego has always known there would be hell to pay if he messed with his best friend's kid sister Sofia. Through the years he watches as she blooms into a beautiful young lady right before his eyes. With teenage hormones raging and Sofia more than willing, Eric agrees to the unthinkable. A forbidden secret romance. Feeling emotions and a feverish passion that's new to them both,neither is ready for how quickly their romance spins out of control.
Since I read the first two books in the series and was generally impressed by how well Ms. Reyes's writing is, I could hardly wait to get my hand on Sweet Sofie, the story about how Sofia, the youngest child in the Moreno family, and Eric, Angel's best friend, fall for one another.
The book started off revealing the childhoods they shared. The bond between Eric and Sofia was formed since they were young and the way the author intensified their relationship was amazing. I, somehow, felt like the title and the story were not very consistent. Sofia is, according to the author, a beautiful girl. But I do not peg her as a sweet one. She is sneaky, stubborn and a bit of a hothead. In short, Sofia is everything, but sweet. I was so shocked when she cheated on Eric, the one who loves her unconditionally, using the excuse of being "inexperience and curious".
I love Eric! He is so together, protective, and more. For these qualities alone, Sofia's betrayal is unexceptionable. Well, the author is able to bend the story and create happy ending eventually. I ain't no writer, so I am holding any authority to judge. However, I feel the story kinda falls flat.
