Nellie is Noah's wife's gentle friend, she's been through a really bad divorce and is getting back on track. She's always liked Abel, even though he's younger than her, and on a cruise with all their friends, offers him a role as her f*** buddy. He grabs the chance, he likes her too and the story moves on from there while he gets ready to contend for a major boxing title in Vegas.
This is a fabulous read for YA and older due to sexual situations. I can't wait to read Felix's story.
Abel is preparing for a title fight and doesn't need anything to distract him from his goal. Nellie is Roni's friend and the one woman who is off-limits to Abel. After spending time together on a cruise, that soon changes as the two commit themselves to a relationship without ties but with all of the benefits.
Assuming the casual, no ties relationship is what they each want, Nellie and Noah believe they accept and live the lie that they have created for themselves.
Time moves on and Nellie and Abel become closer to each other but still openly denying their mutual attraction, create more problems for themselves.
Nellie believes Roni is right and that she should start dating and move on from her ex-husband's confidence crushing treatment of her and, assuming that's not a problem for Abel, she agrees to go on a date with an attractive colleague.
Abel is beyond upset when he finds out Nellie is going on a date but assuming that it's Nellie's choice, stands back and watches as his life starts to unravel.
Nellie's date doesn't exactly go to plan though and her actions end up causing Abel significant pre-fight anxiety and a near catastrophe for herself.
This was another amazing book in the 5th Street series and another character pairing which is perfect. My only criticism of these books is that at times they are a bit too wordy in between dialogue but despite that, the story is thoroughly enjoyable especially the gorgeous Abel!
I am really looking forward to Felix though and to see where his story takes him. I wonder if it will involve a certain someone's sister? Or, maybe I'll be proven wrong!
Reviewed on behalf of Jezabell Girl & Friends...
I have waited a long time to read Abel and Nellie's story. In the previous books there was definitely some chemistry between them. I really liked their story but part of me just wanted a little bit more. Firstly there is a lot more sex in this story than the other books but the sex scenes are tame. The reason the book has more sex is because Abel and Nellie have struck up an 'arrangement'. They will be 'f-buddies'. Neither wants a relationship and after all that Nellie has been through with her ex husband and him getting her sister pregnant, she finally wants to live a little and be 'free'.
Neither Abel or Nellie realised they would soon develop strong feelings for one another. Whilst I believed in their love, I just felt we didn't get enough dialogue between them both. It was more they met up for sex and did little talking or sharing of feelings. I couldn't see when they really got to know one another? Yes they have known each other a while now because Nellie's friend Roni is with Abel's friend Noah (their story was the first in the 5th Street Series) but I wanted more interaction between them. Both Noah and Roni are worried as to how Abel and Nellie's 'arrangement' will work? They don't want either to get hurt and cause problems for their group of friends in the future.
In this book Nellie is 29 (approaching 30) and Abel is 22. I felt although Nellie is nearly 30 Reyes wrote her more like a character from one of her YA books. The only time Nellie seemed more mature is when she was in her work environment. When Nellie believes Abel might be sleeping with other girls, I thought she acted quite immature for someone who had already being married to someone who was unfaithful. The fact she believes Abel is sleeping with other girls and her at the same time but that she doesn't confront him didn't ring true.
For all that Nellie has been through with her ex I found her a bit naive especially when it came to the storyline involving Sam. This part of the story I found entirely too predictable. I would have preferred a different scenario. I suppose the author couldn't make the angst about their age difference as she had done that with 'Noah' but it was barely mentioned. I also felt something that happens near the end of the book was sort of glossed over. We didn't get to read of their shock at how that had happened.
However, I did like both Nellie and Abel. When Abel falls for Nellie he really falls for her. He said some sweet things to her, I just wanted more of that. More conversations and heart to hearts. All the characters from the previous books feature and Felix will be getting his story next - I look forward to that one! I still really liked this story and as I say, I love this authors writing style. I was just a tad disappointed that it wasn't a 5 star read for me like the previous 3 books in this series but it is well worth a read and I'm sure many a reader will fall for Abel!
