Remembering First Love - The Rivera Sisters Series -Book One
By Jeanine Lunsford

Series Description:

Only ten months apart and often mistaken for twins, Amelia and Carina Rivera are well known in the tight-knit Cuban American community of Hialeah, Florida as the Rivera sisters.

Although Amelia and Carina are almost identical in looks, their personalities couldn't be any further apart. 
Religious, hard-working Amelia has always been obedient to her mother, while strong-willed Carina seems to be a magnet for trouble, especially with men.

"Remembering First Love"(Book One of The Rivera Sisters Series) is the story of Carina Rivera's struggle to become the kind of woman she wishes she could be. 

Carina has been through the trauma of being molested as a child by a neighbor man.
 Now in her early twenties, she battles with feelings of low self-worth, finding it difficult to overcome the guilt and shame that have weighed her down her whole life. She's made bad choices, especially in her teens, but now she's ready to turn her back on her past and mend her tainted reputation within the community. But Carina's hopes of going forward into a new and better way of life are quickly shattered when she's thrust into the heavy responsibility of being her family's sole breadwinner.

When Carina meets Aaron Mendoza, her handsome, womanizing supervisor at the garment factory, she forgets the vow she's made to herself and to God to change her ways. There’s something dark and forbidden in Aaron's eyes calling to a part of Carina’s soul that doesn't want to say no.

Can Carina find an escape from Aaron's allure or will her relationship with him prevent her from 
becoming the woman she longs to be?
