Coming off the worst divorce in the history of marriages, Nellie Gamboa’s looking to let loose and make up for years of neglect. When months of building sexual tension between her and the young hot boxing stud, Abel Ayala, finally peak, she makes him an offer no man would refuse.
No promises. No demands. Just pure unrestrained passion.

As the lines between lust and something much deeper, begin to blur, Abel finds himself in an even bigger fight.
The fight to regain control of his now demanding heart.

Review for
Abel (5th Street #4)
by Elizabeth Reyes
4 stars

I opened my heart to Noah in the first book of the 5th Street Series. In the second book, Gio managed to carve out a space of his own, and in the third book, Hector charmed his way into my ever expanding, life-maintaining core. All of these men share values that bond them as friends and make them attractive. Each handsome boxer has his own engaging qualities, which make him memorable and irresistible. I have eagerly awaited this 4th installment of the 5th Street Series.

Abel Ayala has always been the most reserved of the men from 5th street gym. He is fiercely protective of three things, his friends, family, and his private life. It is this protection of his private live that adds mystery to Abel and draws attention to him. He has no hesitation in stepping up to support his friends and family in any way possible and no qualms about speaking his mind to keep them on course in their lives. Now it is his time to shine. With an upcoming chance to fight for the heavyweight title, he is intense in his training and has no time for a committed romantic relationship. It is for this very reason he takes Nellie Gamboa up on her offer of a no-strings-attached sexual relationship.

Nellie Gamboa has survived one the nastiest and most pubic of divorces a person could ever imagine. She has come out of the whole situation with a new outlook on life and is determined not to miss out on experiencing the opportunities that she deprived herself of when she married at a young age. The last thing she is looking for is a serious relationship. When she sees the chance to enjoy the company of the exquisitely handsome heavyweight, Abel. Their attraction to each other has been undeniable since she began working on public relations activities with the owners of the 5th Street Gym. Even when Nellie’s best friend protests about the arrangement she and Abel have, Nellie decides it is more than worth the risk for the experience and pleasure she is receiving.

Abel and Nellie both enter this “friends with benefits” situation thinking they can handle it and walk away unscathed when it ends. It is truly an unforgettable experience to watch these two determined individuals work their way through a situation that quickly spirals in into unexpected territory.

Elizabeth Reyes turns up the heat a notch in Abel while holding true to the 5th Street elements that make her books so very enjoyable. The clean and elegant style of her writing makes this Elizabeth Reyes novel a pleasure to read. Abel is everything I hoped it would be. The characters are consistent and none of the important details that keep me coming back to read these steamy stories are left out. . Ultimately, the passion and intensity with which these characters love and protect each other through tumultuous times make the 5th Street Series a timeless favorite. Abel is one more shining gem in Elizabeth Reyes jewel collection.
