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.
Abel’s training for the biggest fight of his career. He has no time for a social life, much less a relationship. So this arrangement couldn't be more perfect. A beautiful woman asking him to help her alleviate her neglected desires—no strings attached. What more can he ask for?
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.

My Review 

Welcome back to 5th Street "Abel" is the fourth  instalment of Elizabeth Reyes' 5th Street Series
Abel  and Nellie have an undeniable attraction for each other. They have been fighting it for the past 3 books. 
Abel has no time for a relationship, especially with an older woman. He is in his prime, training for the biggest fight of his career. 
When the gang head off on a cruise, Nellie propositions Abel. 

~ "I'm game if you're game." ~

Abel can't believe what he is hearing. He has no business getting involved with Roni's  best friend. But she was offering no-strings. 
No promises. No demands. No hurt feelings. Just pure unrestrained passion.

When they get back from the cruise, they continue their agreement  seeing each other almost nightly. 
Nellie wasn't complaining, the old Nellie no longer existed. Taking risks was thrilling. After her failed marriage, she wanted to explore a different side to her. Sex with a younger man like Abel was beyond her wildest fantasies. And that's all she agreed it would be. She would experience this and when it was over she would move on and not be hurt. Nothing could hurt her more than what her ex had done to her. 

Abel and Nellie establish their boundaries both not admitting their feelings are becoming more. 
Abel can't get enough of her, he finds himself craving more then the amazing sex they share. He wants to get to know her. Spend time with her. But Abel believes Nellie when she keeps telling him that she was all of for a no- relationship deal. He finds ways to prove to her that he wants her more without saying the words out right and scaring her away. 

~ Sucking the inside of her soft thighs until he saw the pleasing hickey that would be there for days. ~

Nellie soon realises that she is falling hard for Abel. Something she said she would never do. She will take him anyway she can have him, even if he doesn't feel the same way. She is having the best sex of her life. She thought the pain her ex caused was more than she ever could handle. But now Abel holds that power over her and she just knows she wouldn't survive it this time.

~ Getting hung up on the first guy you sleep with after your divorce isn't exactly freeing shit. ~

With both Nellie and Abel  convinced the other person isn’t interested in more of a relationship. They both do things that are miss interpreted by the other, sending mixed signals. 
When Nellie believes Abel is seeing other women, she agrees to go out on a date with Sam. Abel doesn't understand where things went wrong. He figures it's best to let her go, but he can't. He finally admits to himself he is in love with her. And when he finds out about Sam heading to Vegas for the fight he finally admits to Nellie how he really feels. 

~ “I can’t do this anymore, Nell. I know you’re not looking for a serious relationship, but I can’t fucking stand the thought of you with someone else.” ~

The sex! WOW Reyes has upped the anti.. Like by 100% hahaha I love all the boys from 5th st and their stories but Abel and the added sexy times…. HOT!  He is just my type of guy. 

~ "You know what happens to bad girls who let any guy, aside from their boyfriend, pull them into another room for more privacy?"... 
"But I didn't …. What? What happens to them?…
"They get fucked so hard until they're begging for forgiveness."~

With everything out in the open, they can both move forward and be together. 
But when forces are trying to break them up, forcing Nellie away into danger. Able never thought the biggest fight of his life would be holding onto Nellie.
Willing to give up everything, will they get their happy ending? 

Elizabeth Reyes does it again. Abel had so much sex appeal I loved it. I'm glad it was Abel who came to the conclusion first to admit his feelings. I love all the 5th st Boys but Able tops my list. I can't wait for Felix's story next. Would definitely recommend this whole series.
