FELIX (5th STREET #5) by ELIZABETH REYES

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000035_00037]

SYNOPSIS

They say the only good thing about hitting rock bottom is that it can’t get any worse . . . or can it? 

World famous boxing champ, Felix Sanchez, had it all—the fame, the fortune, and all the women any man could ask for. When the hours of partying followed by hours spent in court and in rehab begin to outnumber the hours he spends training, losing his title comes as no surprise to everyone. The world assumes he deserved to lose it.

Only those closest to Felix know the real truth behind his sudden downward spiral. And if Felix has his way, no one else ever will. With an uncertain future ahead of him, he heads back to his roots—5th Street—the gym that started it all for him. It’s where he meets the humble but mighty little Ms. Ella.

The only times Felix had ever decided to forgo the usual meaningless fling and try a real relationship he was burned badly. Now the adorable but tenacious self-defense instructor has him considering this love thing one more time.

Then just when he begins to worry that his past is letting his possessive and jaded heart get the best of him, he’s blindsided in the most brutal way—he’s brought to his knees—to what could be the one low in his life he may never recover from.

“You are who you choose to be.”

I’ve always loved Elizabeth Reyes’ books, they’re always so well written and flawless. They capture me and I get swept away. I was dying to get to Felix’s story; the cocky bad boy, fierce fighter and player extraordinaire. I had no idea that what I was in fact in for was one of the more emotional stories in this series because of what came to be. Both Felix and Ella had my heart bleeding.

“Your scars are a symbol of your strength.”

I did find the first half of this story quite slow and repetitive. However, once the real heartfelt emotion kicked in and we discovered what Felix was inherently all about as things developed with Ella, it had me riveted. My heart broke and melted in equal measure. This couple are all about bravery, trust and love and I completely believed in their relationship.

Ella was a lovable, strong and inspirational heroine. This young girl knew who she was; what she wanted and showed courage in her conviction. She was a sweetheart and at times I was amazed at the weight she carried on her shoulders.

“Mighty Little Ms. Ella.”

My heart ached for this beautiful girl and absolutely, Felix knew that Ella was incredibly special, she was his soul mate. They were exactly what each other needed and the attraction was intense and believable. It wasn’t an easy ride though; what they went through individually and together was quite something. Some moments were so emotional and Felix showed his true lovable, understanding and protective nature.

“We’ll start with the story of us, just as soon as you say you’re in this all the way.”

Felix, wow, his story broke my heart. I did not see that coming and I had tears as the reasons behind his reckless behaviour were revealed. I did find that Ella’s strong character and story overshadowed Felix’s through most of this book however, this was not necessarily a bad thing. To be honest, it felt quite refreshing.

I feel a bit sad that this series has come to an end as I’ve really enjoyed every book. Noah is still the one that stands out for me and has to be my favourite. On a last note; I kind of want to give Elizabeth Reyes a standing ovation for the epilogue we got in Felix. What a fantastic way to end a series I bloody loved it!!
