Felix (5th Street #5) by Elizabeth Reyes


 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 know that ecard where it says "I fell in love last night ... in Chapter ten?" Well, it didn't take me until Chapter Ten. In fact, it didn't even take me until Chapter five. All Elizabeth Reyes had to do was write 'Prologue', a quote and then ... Felix. That was all it took for me to be giddy and all excited. God, that boy... All broken and hurt right from the beginning, only to turn into Mister Amazing in less than three chapters. Seriously. This book just got me right away.

I'm honest here... I put off reading it because ... let's face it... It's the end of the 5th Street series. I couldn't handle that. In fact, I still can't and probably never will be able to get over it. 

And even though eventually I did read it, I stopped at about 66 percent because ... it was all well and I  worried since the book would be over too soon.

Anyways, today I finished. I won't lie. I didn't want to finish because this SERIES is over now. There's no more 5th Street. I don't know how that is possible. No more waiting. No more fighters. No more Noah, Abel, Gio, Hector and FELIX! (Sorry, just let me drown in my misery for a few seconds...)

Okay, on to the real thing now. *pulls up her big girl panties* 
I won't lie. I was in love with Felix already from Gio's book on and there was NOTHING I was waiting for more than for Felix to be happy. And then, when this whole book started, he was just as amazing as I always thought it would be... 

Ella though ... I loved her in the beginning because she is one of the strongest women out there. No doubt that the rest of the girls in the 5th Street series are amazing, but Ella just had something more. It's hard to really explain, but she is tough and sweet and strong at the same time ... and stupid. I'm sorry, but I couldn't help but get so mad at her at times. How can she go on talking to her ex even after it becomes obvious that Felix is hurting over it and Grayson just not getting it? 
In the end though it all turned out amazing. 
I will not spoil any of you, simply because that's not what reviews should be about, but this book his hard on the heart. I was hurting and holding my breath and hurting more - good pain. I like hurting about books, I really do. 

Now though... It's OVER. I finished. How did that even happen? I didn't want to finish. I wanted this book to last forever. *sobs* 

It was amazing, and cute, and sweet, and HOT, and FELIX. 

Now, after all books ... Let me pick my favorite 5th Street guy...

BAHAHAHAHA, you thought I could pick a favorite??? Did you READ the rest of the boys?? Wait, what do you mean you didn't? WHY??? Get on it! Now!!

So, my rating for Felix:

Five + Book-boyriends

I'm gonna hurt about having to say goodbye to the guys now.

Yours truly,
