Blurb : 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.
Review : Always Be True: Tino (Sergeant Joe’s Boys #2) by Alexis Morgan is the second book in the Sergeant Joe’s Boys series.
And while it still feels kind of strange to read Non-Paranormal books from Alexis Morgan it really looks like she got the contemporary department solid under her typing fingers.
Still – Tino came to me a little more shallow than Jack in the first book. But I assume it was because of the basic Blurb of the Book.
I did not feel comfortable with Tino feeling “small” – I liked the “Boys” too much for that. Which was also a reason I was questioning myself in the beginning if I should request the book at all given the not so comfortable Blurb for me.
But I did not want to miss out on parts of this story – simply to not lose the story thread with all of Sergeant Joe’s Boys and I am glad I did not. I worked through it and it was really only my very personal issue and not one of the book.
The plot is solid and well written in the usual solid way that this author is presenting her work. And I can recommend this book warmly to al lovers of solid romances
