Overview

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 best friend 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 hooking 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 for each to resist the other, 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 obsession—a dangerous obsession that can only lead to heartache—for everyone.

    Disgusted

    I'm not sure what about glorifying cheating is so attractive to the favorable reviews of this book. I couldn't even finish it because I was so repulsed. Both Gio and Bianca could have left the house and Bianca could have broken things off with Felix BEFORE any cheating happened. Instead she CHOSE to stay in the relationship and even the same bed as the man she betrays. Bianca is a worthless character and Gio isn't much better. Such a huge disappointment because I genuinely liked Gio in Noah's story. Now I will never read another book by this author because this joke of a story was so repugnant.

    Despite the way they get together, the love between Bianca and Gio is obvious from the very beginning. Gio is a gentleman and deserves a woman like Bianca. Felix despite the heartache showed he has a heart in there...his career makes it easy to be a player so it's hard to leave it behind.

    Love that Noah and Roni made appearances and hope to get more of them in the series as it goes on. I am also hoping to read about a love for Nellie soon too!!

    I am really enjoying this series and can't wait to read about the super smart teenager Hector! And can't wait to see how they rebuild 5th Street. Reyes is an exceptional author. Her Moreno Brothers series is exceptional as well!!

    Great 2nd Book

    I LOVED GIO! Elizabeth has once again created wonderful, multidimensional characters. The best can fall to temptation and do things they NEVER believed that they would be capable of. Each person rings true. Hope, dispair, longing, love and deceit are part of each of the three main characters. Elizabeth makes each of her "boys" look at how they've objectified women and by truely seeing the women they love they become "men" worthy of love. I can't wait to read the next book. Take a bow Elizabeth you've earned it.(less)

    A Sure Thing!!!

    I was so hesitant about reading the 5th Street series. I'vd read all the books in the Moreno Series and the 1st book in Fate and loved them both. I just wasn't sure about reading about fighting or boxing. This series is also a must read of Elizabeth Reyes. The plots are based around a gym but no way focuses on or encourages fighting through the books. The 5th Street Gym is just a way of life but truly focuses on the love between all the characters and you will fall in love with all of them wanting another book to follow. Once you read one of her books, you are hooked! She can't publish fast enough for me!!! Keep up the great work!

    Good story with some heartache and pain. But Felix was good guy to finally understand that Biana and Gio belong together. But in the end all was good and everyone is living happily everafter.

    Love Elizabeth Reyes!

    Ok, maybe I am a little biased since I am a FAN of Reyes. But, the woman can write a good story, and boy is Gio a story! I think Gio is the most relatable story of the series (so far). We've all been in that position of fighting against temptation, loyalty, betrayal and staying true to yourself through it all. Bianca is a refreshingly real character, you can sometimes grow tire of the overly dramatic, but Bianca is that girl that does not bottle things up and just goes for it, not caring for consequences at the moment. It is why Bianca and Gio's chemistry is truly palpable and believable. A great read that deserves another 1000 pages!!

    Gio by Elizabeth Reyes 5th Street Series Book 2 Giovanni Bravo's

    Gio by Elizabeth Reyes
    5th Street Series Book 2
    Giovanni Bravo's life has just taken a turn. After a tragedy, he has decided to give up boxing. When his old friend, Felix Sanchez, offers Gio to come up to his compound in Big Bear for two months, to train with him, his friends urge him to go. Little does anyone know that this decision will once again change Gio's life in both good ways and bad. With these Alpha guys there always seems to be quite a bit of life changing drama when you throw a beautiful girl into the mix.

    Bianca Rubio felt so special. She was dating the famous and popular Felix Sanchez. She had to learn not to read or believe what the tabloids said about him and different women, that the paparazzi could take pictures that didn't tell the real story and that Felix couldn't be around for her too often. But she was squealing with delight because he was going to be her's for two months while he trained at his compound. What Bianca did not expect was seeing Gio, the boy from her World History class who never noticed her at school, or so she thought.

    Neither Gio or Bianca had plans of being attracted to each other but that did not stop the sparks from flying...or prepare them for the explosion of emotions that would touch all those around them, due to that attraction.

    Another well written book by Elizabeth Reyes, Gio will take your emotions for a complete work out. There is a touch of suspense and adventure as our characters have to be a bit clandestine, especially with hidden camera's and paparazzi all around. The characters we met in Noah (book 1) return in Gio; Noah and Roni, Abel, Hector, Jack and Roni's friend Nellie. I always enjoy series books where you get to see “friends” again.
    **Contains Sexual situations and language.
