Felix by Elizabeth Reyes ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway

Title: Felix (5th Street, #5)
Author: Elizabeth Reyes
Genre: NA | Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 13, 2014
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.

Teaser




Last night he'd done just that, and tonight he was confirming it. Even if he did try to deny it, which he wasn't, his body and soul had claimed her. She was his. Ella belonged to Felix now. He could try to fight the possessive instincts all he wanted, but he already knew it was how his heart felt and there'd be no changing that.



Ella had made one thing clear. You didn't tell a girl like her you'd just claimed her. He closed his eyes for a moment then squeezed them a little tighter as the thought of her with Grayson--or with anyone else--lit his insides.



"Something wrong?" she asked.



Felix's eyes flew open and he smiled. "No," he said, shaking his head slowly, "not at all."



Maybe he couldn't tell her she belonged to him now, but he sure as shit would be making it clear to anyone who tried to argue that she didn't.


Review
 
I am quite the fan of Elizabeth's and this series. I actually found Elizabeth not by the Moreno brothers series, but stumbling upon Noah one day on Amazon.  I was instantly hooked on this series.  I have been waiting for Felix's book forever, ever since Gio and I was not disappointed.  I honestly wasn't quite sure what to expect, Felix has not always made the best choices.....he's had a rough road and instantly his story takes off with a BOOM! Once again, Elizabeth managed to suck me into the 5th Street world and I did not want to leave until I devoured every last word from these sexy alpha boxers! 4.5 stars.
 
Ella is a little different than your typical heroine and I loved this about her.  She is young, she is average in looks, and she is not wealthy but she is brave, strong, loyal, and a real go-getter.....all of these attributes attract Felix to Ella, even though she is not the type of girl he would normally date.  Ella's life has not always been easy, actually things have been quite tough for her.  She is teaching self defense classes at the 5th St. gym when her path crosses with Felix.  She instantly notices him, but doesn't think he would be interested in a normal girl like her.  Ella is surprised when Felix wants to purse a relationship, she wants to take things slow, the last thing she needs is to get wrapped up in Felix and have her heart broken...after all, everyone knows Felix's reputation.  The road will not be easy for these two.  They will face challenges and obstacles from the past, present, and even future that will threaten their chance at a HEA....things I didn't even see coming.  Felix and Ella have each other...but will it be enough in the end?
 
Great conclusion to a fabulous series.  The epilogue was absolutely beautiful! I'm sad to see this series end, but I'm extremely happy with the way it ended. I'm really, really hoping I read a little into that epilogue and that Elizabeth has something up her sleeve in the future!
