Review: Lila (Boyle Heights #1) by Elizabeth Reyes

Review- Lila (Boyle Heights #1) by Elizabeth Reyes

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.

Finally Lila is here, and I’m so happy about it. When Elizabeth Reyes talked about the foul-mouthed, bad-tempered girl, I was curious what she had in store for us. Lila is definitely not afraid to fight, though nine times out of ten it is to protect her sister.

Lila is a great character, I loved seeing a woman who was a bit more edgy, cursed like a sailor, and wasn’t even afraid to get physical. Though when it comes to men, she is like every other female. She tries to keep her cool when she meets Sonny, but she falls for him hard, and fast.

Sonny was charming, and sweet. From the first moment he sees Lila, and she has no clue who he is, that’s it. He is head over heels for her, and I loved how soft he was around her. Totally whipped really, but in an adorable way. Not to mention the chemistry between them was H-O-T!

Lila is a great start of a new series. We already know the second book is going to be about her little sister, Ali, who you’ll also love. I already can’t wait to read her story as well. Elizabeth Reyes is known for writing strong female characters, and Lila is a perfect addition to that.
