Gio (5th Street #2) by Elizabeth Reyes

Oh, sorry, you probably wanna know what this is about. The book, I mean, not the GIF. 


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. 

Oh man... This book. Oh man... As you can see by the GIF above, I am all giddy and excited about this book. I literally just finished and felt like I need to get on here now and share with you how much I loved this book. Like... Really. 

I mean, I was torn. A lot. Not about the book, but the story. You know how you recognize a good book? You get so involved in the story that you just want to throw a fit or have a long, hard talk with one or the other of the characters in the book. As it is, I was first pissed at Gio and Bianca, then at Felix, then Gio again, Felix, all of them, Gio, Gio, Gio... All of them and the whole world... I hated every bit of what the author made me feel... You know, stuff like that! *wink* In the end though this book just really brought me to tears... And the last few percent I forgot to breathe, only starting again when my heart actually went crazy. No matter what I wanted to do originally... I had to finish. Boy, I loved this book, I loved the one before that and I was so glad we got to see Noah and Roni again. Now I can't wait for Felix's book, but sadly I have two others to read in-between... Even though I have no doubt that those will be just as great.

Start with Noah, seriously. You will fall in love with all the guys on 5th Street.

Yours truly,
