It's nice to see such a strong female character not to mention a character that I've wanted to see have a happy ending get theirs. I can't wait for the rest of the series!
Lila by Elizabeth Reyes Boyle Heights Series Book One Lila Rico has a big problem. Rage. Uncontrollable rage. As if that's not bad enough, she has the ability with her fists to do a lot of damage when the rage hits. A caring dean at her school suggests the one thing that can help her rage. The one thing she never wanted to be part of for personal reasons. The one thing that may help her stay out of trouble and be there for her sister, Ali. Boxing. Sonny never thought he'd find the “right” girl. Someone who would like him for who he is—not for what he does. When he meets Lila, she seems too good to be true. And maybe she is. I loved this story as it brings the gang from the 5th Street Gym into it. It's unique that it's the heroine with the anger and jealousy issues—although Sonny is far from whimpy. Looking forward to the next book in this series already. Beast will be Ali's story. **Strong sexual content and language
