Book Description

2 Aug 2012
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 up 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. Adult Contemporary romance

More About the Author

Writing is my passion. It hasn't always been. I began writing in high school mostly just for fun. I never once took it seriously or had aspirations of becoming a published writer.

I began writing Forever Mine in the 10th grade. I'd forgotten all about it until many MANY years later after moving into a new home, I began to unpack a box that had been sitting in my old houses garage closet. After unpacking old year books and school photos I'd long ago thought were lost forever. I came across an envelope with about seven chapters worth of Forever Mine. I became engrossed in the romance I'd forgotten all about. When I got to the last page I'd written I was so dissapointed because I REALLY wanted to know what happend next.

I decided to finish it. It has been one of the most pleasurable experiences of my life. I felt like I was living their story and enjoyed every minute. When I was finally done I cried. I missed my characters so much I decided there would be more. After much tweaking and editing I wanted the world to read Forever Mine, so I self published. Now I'm hooked on writing.

The experience continues as I work on Always Been Mine the second in the series of The Moreno Brothers. I'm on a roller coaster again and loving every minute. I hope to have it out by early 2011, then I can get started on the the 3rd which the title has yet to come to me. I will, and when it does. I will update my bio. =)

4.0 out of 5 stars Gio 28 Mar 2013
By Holly
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this, I love how all these books are connected with this author's series' because with all these new installments we get glimpses into the continuing lives of the previous book's characters and they are very satisfying glimpses, almost like tiny sequels thrown into a bigger story. In this case, Noah and Roni. It feels like a treat as a reader to be given this.

I knocked off a star purely because although it's a great story, it is one of cheating and I just can't fall in love with a story of that kind because all the romance in the world, doesn't make it right in my opinion :-/

Once again, I love the writing, I love the characters and I love the 5th street world and look forward to "Hector"

I have been hit by reyes and her writing and characters. Can’t get enough of these people. Love the writing style its easy to follow with depth and character to each person and leads nicely to each book even if they are not in the same series I feel like there is a small community that I know all about. Love it

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT ADDITION TO THE SERIES 19 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Gio's old friend from high school Felix has hit the big time in boxing, world champion. He visits the 5th Street Gym, as it was where he first got into boxing. Gio has had a bad time recently, and has sworn never to box again. Felix offers Gio a job as his sparring partner for his upcoming fight. Gio happily accepts, when he arrives at the training camp he meets Bianca Felix's girlfriend. She went to the same highschool as Felix and Gio. But she wasn't part of the popular crowd like them, Gio always thought she was cute though. But now she has blossomed into a real beauty.

I read the reviews on, and noted that some did not like the cheating aspect of this book. But I did not find this bothered me. As th author handled it very well IMO.The story shows the building attraction between Gio and Bianca. But they both know what they are feeling is wrong. Especially as Gio is and Felix are very old friends. The relationship between Felix and Bianca is rocky, and at best could only be described as a long distance one. As Felix is always on the move.
I thought that even without Gio in the picture, Bianca was a fool to stick with Felix, he wasn't a serious relationship kind of a guy. But I suppose then we wouldn't have had a story. As for the writing that was brilliant, the characters are very well developed. I simply adored Gio, he was everything a girl could wish for. Bianca was bright funny and intelligent. I liked the way the relationship between Gio and Bianca built. The secondary characters were an essential part of the story. It was great to catch up with all the characters from the gym especially Noah and Roni who featured in the first book of the series. Noah (5th Street #1). All in all a great addition to this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 11 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well I loved Noah (the first in this series) but I loved Gio even more. Elizabeth Reyes writes adult contemporary as well as young adult books. I have read some from her Moreno brother series, one of which I wasn't keen on. Although Gio is 'adult contemporary', it does still feel like a YA book as all the characters are aged around 21 (although we don't actually get told their ages in this book but I am going on their ages when Noah ended!). There are no explicit love scenes until near the end of the book and in my view even these are tame so yes, it does seem like a YA book however, I still really enjoyed it.

I have read reviews on and some people are not keen on the fact the book is about 'cheating'. I didn't have a problem with this as from the beginning, it is obvious that Felix (Bianca's boyfriend) is not being faithful to her. Also, the reason Bianca doesn't just end things with Felix when she realises she is falling for Gio is because she would then not be able to see Gio. I found this all very believable.

As with Noah, we get a slow build up on the romance side. I like this in a story. Gio to me is the best male hero I have read out of all Elizabeth Reyes books. He has reason to show jealousy, but it is in a normal way and not overly possessive like some of her other characters. Bianca as well is one of the best heroines I have read by Reyes.

All in all, a really good read. Reyes states at the end that she is taking a break from this series and going back to the Moreno brothers (Vince and Rose). I'm a bit disappointed we will have to wait for the next one in this series and I am hoping it is Abe and Nellie's story next.

I am a huge fan of Elizabeth Reyes books, so I know that I will always enjoy them!
She didn't let me down! I enjoyed this book as it was quite different from the first one, it was juicy in the fact that the girl he fell for isn't his girl to begin with but of course we all route for him. I did however have some mixed feelings about Felix. I hated Felix at some points as of course he got in the way of the romance and all of that but then I did feel a little sad for Felix in the end because he sort of lost a girl friend and a best friend both at the same time... but I do hope that he gets over it and finds a happy ending himself ;)
