Review: Always Be True: Tino by Alexis Morgan

Always be True: Tino
Sergeant Joe's Boys #2
Alexis Morgan
October 4th

When Sergeant Joe and his wife, Marlene, adopted Tino Gianelli as a teenager, the foster kid began to heal from his deep insecurities. Now, with a successful military career behind him and a good job as a contractor in the family construction business, Tino shouldn't have any reason to doubt himself. He's fallen hard for a beautiful heiress, and she seems to be crazy about him too. So why does he keep trying to hide his working-class roots?

Natalie Kennigan's ideal guy is someone who will consider her an equal and his best friend, not merely a box to check on the road to success. Tino—with his down-to-earth personality, generous heart, and passionate embrace—might just be the one, at least until he finds out about Natalie's family money and starts treating her like the typical rich girl who needs to be wined and dined. Natalie will have none of it. She won't be happy until he accepts her for who she truly is—just as she wants to love the real Tino.

I really didn't think I'd like Morgan writing contemporaries after I fell in love with her paranormal's. But guess what...I do! I can almost say that I enjoy them as much. I'm still having a affair with her paranormal's so it might take me a while. 

Always Be True: Tino is book 2 of her latest series, Sergeant Joe's Boys. I love the whole idea of this series. Having all the boys come from crappy lives only to finally find a family with Joe & Marlene.  

Poor Tino is slightly lost in his life. After being in the Army for so long he's not sure what to do with himself. Very understandable. Then he meets Natalie. 

You'll love her right away, and her grandfather. In fact, some of my most memorable laughs came from him. The man cracked me up. 

Because life is never easy both Natalie and Tino won't find their romantic beginnings easy either. They have a few big bumps along the way but they both really care about each other so they work them out. 

Besides really enjoying the story I liked visiting with the characters from book 1. I'm really looking forward for Mikhail's book, Love, Always & Forever out March 14th! 

If you've read Always Be True: Tino or any other book by Alexis Morgan I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
