SYNOPSIS
When tragedy strikes in the ring, Giovanni Bravo falls into a deep depression, walking away from his dream of boxing to train instead. He agrees to a two month get-away, helping train Felix Sanchez, his high school buddy and now welterweight champ of the world. Once at Felix’s lavish boxing complex, he’s reunited with Bianca Rubio, someone he remembers only as the girl with the innocent doe eyes back in high school. Her refreshing, cheerful demeanor not only takes Gio’s mind off his troubled conscience, he finds himself falling for her fast and hard. The problem—Bianca is Felix’s girlfriend.

Having a sexy, famous boyfriend has its perks, but they come with a price. Bianca not only has to deal with the ongoing tabloid rumors about her boyfriend’s questionable relationships with other women, but also his constant absence when he is on the road. So now that Felix will be in town for two whole months to train for his next big bout, Bianca is thrilled. He’s even asked her to move into his cabin while he’s there. But when he leaves for days at a time to promote his fight, Bianca spends time getting to know Felix’s gorgeous new trainer and good friend, Gio. Increasingly drawn to his sweet smile and smoldering green eyes, she finds herself saying and doing things she normally wouldn’t.

As it becomes more and more difficult to resist the mutual attraction, Gio crosses the line between them. He hopes that one kiss will alleviate the overwhelming temptation and clear both their systems, but it does just the opposite. Their temptation suddenly becomes an overwhelming longing–a longing that quickly forces Gio to realize this is more than just lust. He’s fallen hard and to his delight so has she. Now he’s forced to make the hardest decision of his life. Risk losing a long time friend or walk away from the only girl he’s ever loved.

5 stars

Elizabeth Reyes never disappoints! Her style of writing in the 5th Street series just flows so easily and picks you up for the ride. It stays centered and to the point without always including all the, sometimes, unnecessary side stories. This makes 5th Street a refreshing change because it focuses intently on the 2 main characters and their journey, which makes it that more real and emotional.

This is the second book in the series and Reyes had me hooked once again with Gio..yummy lush Gio with his amazing green eyes..sigh…and the sweet and adorable Bianca!!! Their story was passionate and intense!!

The story-line is one that can be difficult to read. We all know that love is not simple, it is not neat and tidy and it isn’t predictable. Love is uncontrollable when it happens. We also know that two wrongs don’t make a right, and that with deception comes guilt. However, I think Reyes dealt with it beautifully and sensitively. I got it and I completely understood!!


THE 5TH STREET SERIES 

Life in the streets of East Los Angeles is tough. But this group of friends stays out of trouble by staying in the gym-5th Street with aspirations of becoming the next big thing out of LA since DeLaHoya. But things get interesting and romances start to sizzle when they each meet their match outside the ring.
