When two unlikely paths cross . . . compatibility seems improbable.
Adrift in a foul-mouthed world of ass kicking to survive life on the tough streets of Boyle Heights, Lila is anything but a refined girlie girl. Fighting tooth and nail for those she loves has left her with a chip on her shoulder as big as the gloves on her fists.
After years of being surrounded by glamorous glitzy women, Sonny didn’t even realize how much he’s yearned for someone of real substance. So, when he meets the unapologetic, sexy-as-hell Lila, her in-your-face candor awakens something in him he’s never felt before.
Despite Lila’s suspicions about Sonny’s intentions, the two begin a seemingly innocent, yet deliciously dangerous, online flirtation as his business keeps him away a lot.
The more their rapidly growing connection intensifies, the more Lila feels Sonny is too perfect to be true. But when she’s blindsided by the truth about who Sonny really is . . .
Compatibility suddenly feels impossible.

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
