Fate is a Moreno Brothers spinoff series.

He ruled out attachments years ago. Then one day he crosses paths with a beautiful but pampered daddy's little princess. History has taught him one thing about women like her—steer clear.

She was starting over. She moved back to her home town, took a new job assignment, and left her past behind. For the first time in over eighteen months, she's even intrigued by a man—a sexy but cold and indifferent drill sergeant. Despite feeling drawn to him, she has no time to figure out his inexplicable aversion to her.

Then Fate steps in one night, forcing them together. There's a connection neither can refute, and they both consider giving into the undeniable attraction.

Fate however can also be cruel. Just when they surrender to their heart's desires, past demons resurface in the most unexpected way, threatening the happiness neither realized they so desperately needed.


Falling deep into his amazing kisses and his gentle yet possessive embrace as he continued to kiss her endlessly, she could already feel herself giving into the idea.

He finally pulled away to catch his breath and stared deep in her eyes. “Brandon?” she asked, breathlessly.

“Hm?” he said, kissing her lips again softly then her chin and working his way down her neck.

“Are we friends now?”

His kisses ceased for a moment before he kissed then sucked on her neck softly. “Nope,” he said before sucking her neck a little harder, every part of her body trembling in response.

Confused because he’d just given her this speech about how he was making an exception for her, she had to ask. “Why not? I thought—”

He lifted his head and latched his teeth onto her bottom lip before she could finish, then bit down just enough to make it hurt so good—a sensation she’d never felt before. Sucking it one last time before pulling away, he stared at her very seriously, and his expression went soft again. “Silly girl,” he said with a peck. “I already told you my stand on men and women being friends.”


His mouth was on hers again, kissing her in that crazed way he had the first day, the way that made her wild with desire, and she moaned in reaction to it. She wrapped her arms around him as he lifted himself onto her, obviously being careful that he didn’t touch her bad ankle. Pressed against her like this, there was no denying he was as aroused as she felt, and he continued to devour her mouth, her lips, and her tongue, like a man on a mission to make her come by just kissing her.

Just when she thought she couldn’t take it anymore, that she might shamelessly moan, he pulled away and stared into her eyes very seriously, his hands cradling her face as he tried to calm his own labored breathing. “We’re not friends. We never will be, okay?” She nodded, not sure if she should be hurt or not. “I’m just gonna be upfront about this now so there is no doubt. I don’t mean this sexually, Regina. In that sense, we can go as slow as you want, but if, after this weekend, we’re not more than friends, then things go back to the way they were before Friday. If I’m gonna make this exception, then it’s either all or nothing. Anything in between is unacceptable.”
Breaking Brandon is a spin off to the Moreno brothers so if your a fan of Elizabeth Reyes and follow her books then you meet Brandon in Sweet Sofie. If you haven't read the Moreno Brother’s Series or the 5th Street series, I highly recommend you moving them up on your TBR.  I LOVE Elizabeth's books.  Breaking Brandon did not disappointment, it may be my favorite yet, but then again I say that with every book Elizabeth releases....emotional, intense, so good, there is just something about the wounded, heart-broken hero that gets me every-time! 4.5 stars! 

In Breaking Brandon we follow Brandon and Regina.  Brandon has a rough life....he's lost his parents and the girl of his dreams doesn't share his feelings, so he just turns his emotions off.  He builds these walls up, not letting anyone in and focuses on his career in the military.  Then he meets Regina....Regina reminds Brandon so much of the girl that wounded him that he instantly dislikes Regina, and he is not very nice to her.  It's not long before Regina breaks down Brandon's walls and wiggles her way into Brandon's heart.  But Regina has had her own share of grief and heartbreak and has built up her own walls.  It's not long before these two can't stop thinking about the other and definitely can't deny the chemistry they share.  Can these two help each other heal or will they runaway from love when faced with an unfortunate twist of fate? 

Absolutely, loved this book.....passionate, intense, heartbreaking and sooooo sexy! Can't wait to see who is next up in this series and hopefully get a glance of more of these characters.
