FACTS ABOUT THE 5th STREET SERIES
By Elizabeth Reyes
  • I've mentioned this before, but some may not have read about it. The idea of "5th Street" came from my husband’s childhood street name and the street his parents and many of his friends still live on: 5th Street. Very often the street is referred to as a place. "So where you gonna be for the 4th of July?" "We'll be down at 5th Street as usual." I really liked how they thought of it as an actual place, not just a street, so I decided since this would be taking place in East L.A. really close to the 5th Street he grew up in, why not? I still get ribbed by some of his friends and brothers saying I owe them royalties for their stories. (Insert eye roll.) LOL. No, none are boxers.
  • Most of my stories come to me in bits and pieces, and then the story comes together as I write it. Noah and Gio are probably two of the only stories I've written (with the exception of Breaking Brandon, which I'm still in the process of writing) that have come to me in their entirety from beginning to end.
  • I've never cried as much as I did writing a certain event in Gio. Without giving away any spoilers, I'll just say it's the twist no one see's coming. =/
  • As popular as the motorcycle riding bad boy heroes are these day, Noah and Gio are my only two heroes ever to ride motorcyles because I personally think they are so dangerous. Even then, I made sure they wore their helmets. If you recall, Roni didn't let Noah drive it in the rain, and again in Abel there is mention of her not allowing him to use it until he gives it a major overhaul. LOL. I'm such a mother hen even with my fictional characters. Anyone who has read all or most of my novels knows my characters always wear their seatbelts. They never talk on the phone while driving unless they have a hands free gadget of some kind, and they always wear protection. Unless of course the plot warrants they don't. ;)
  • The plot for Hector came to me one day when my son came home from school one day and announced that he had finally joined the chess club. He is an excellent chess player, and I'd been trying to convince him to join the chess club forever, but he kept saying the chess club was for nerds. He shared lots of stories with me about the characters in the club, and when I teased him about there being any cute girls, he didn't immediately say no as I expected him to. Instead, he thought about it for a second before responding, "Yeah, but they're all so shy." My son is outgoing, spends most his time in the gym, and was a typical jock in high school. He in no way looked like a shy introverted chess player type, so the thought occurred to me what if, and the story was born. =D  
  • As with my novel Fate, while I feel Felix's story is part of the 5th Street series it's also feeling like a stand-alone or at the very least an extension of the series. For starters, I don't anticipate the title being "Felix." Also, I have something planned for his story that will set it apart from the others. I'm very excited and nervous about this by the way.
  • I Googled pictures of De La Hoya's training complex up in Big Bear to better be able to describe a cabin of that caliber.
  • I have a friend who very often cracks herself up most of the time before getting through whatever story she is telling. While she doesn't do the squeaking thing like Bianca, once she gets going, it's incredibly contagious, and I always find myself cracking up with her, even if I don't know what the heck she's laughing about. This was my inspiration for Bianca's moments when she'd crack herself up. I even cracked up a few times, picturing my friend as I wrote the scenes.

About the Author
I write because I must. It's not a choice or a pastime, it's an unyielding calling and my passion."
~Elizabeth Reyes~
Elizabeth continues to answer to her calling on a daily basis. Since releasing her debut novel Forever Mine (Moreno Brothers #1) in 2010 she has now published 10* novels total and fast at work on the next. The excitement her Moreno Brothers, 5th Street, and Fate series have garnered have far exceeded her wildest dreams. It is with as much excitement that she'll continue to put out books related to these series as well as introduce brand new ones very soon.

Abel (5th Street #4)

For now here is my inspiration of Abel. Because I know it may seem like he's real serious--sometimes too serious. He's not ALWAYS brooding. There are things that make this man smile! Just ask Nellie. ;)

  
Now for the Abel teaser! 
****WARNING VERY EXPLICIT!****

Abel (5th Street #4)
Prologue

“I’m game if you’re game,” Nellie said, staring at him anxiously.
A man’s burning urges often ignore all logic. Abel Ayala knew this was all this was. A day of sipping on cocktails and lying around the deck of a cruise ship watching scantily-clad bikini-wearing women giving him the go-ahead smiles had done it to him. But now he stood here staring into Nellie Gamboa’s eyes, a divorcee eight years older than he was who from what he’d heard was still carrying a load of emotional baggage—probably still held a torch for her ex as well. She was someone he would not and should not be thinking of in terms of releasing some sexual tension, damn it.
The fact that she’d turned her life around after what had been hailed by his friend’s wife and Nellie’s best friend, Roni, as one of the most grueling experiences any woman could go through didn’t help. She’d gone and shaped up and did a complete makeover from the mousy woman he once remembered her as. If he didn’t know it, he’d never even guess this sexy-as-hell woman would be hitting thirty soon. The sexual tension between them had been a living breathing thing and going on for months now. Only up until now he thought he might be imagining her requited feelings of lust.
His twenty-two-year-old ass had no business with a woman her age—no business getting involved with Roni’s best friend—especially knowing full well that he’d never take a relationship with her seriously. But this changed things. Nellie was telling him she was all for a no-strings-attached relationship. She was as interested in anything serious as he was. Coming off what she called the divorce from hell, she said she wanted to live it up now. He was glad for the liquid courage Nellie’s wine had provided. She said she was all for a fun-and-run experience and she’d had her eye on him for some time.
It was still a risk, his brain reasoned. Things could sour. This could even cause a rift between him and his good friend’s wife if any hurt feelings came from this. But the already throbbing parts of his body said otherwise.
She tilted her head in that sexy way she did so often with curved lips that practically called out for his. To hell with logic! Pulling her delicate frame against his immediately released some of the pent-up tension that had been building every time he’d been around her lately.
Swallowing hard, he stared at those lips—lips he’d wondered far too many times what they must taste like. “Hell yeah, I’m game,” he said as he took her mouth in his. Feeling a desire like none he’d ever felt before, he kissed her deeply, sucking her tongue, her lips. Damn, he wanted to eat her up.
He’d been fighting it—over thinking it—for months. This was just his ever-so-curious body’s reaction to finally giving into a longing that had peaked tonight as they’d enjoyed a few friendly dances. That’s all it was. But he needed more than just a kiss now. God he wanted so much more, and since she was game . . . He pulled away from her just long enough to catch his breath and take a look around the almost-empty deck.
“I’d invite you back to my room, but Hector and Charlee might—”
She tugged his hand and was already on the move. “Let’s go back to mine.”
The second the elevator doors closed, Abel pushed her against the wall, pulling her by the waist to him, and his mouth and tongue sucked at every inch of hers. She panted softly, running her fingers through his hair as he moved down to her soft neck and sucked softly then a little rougher.
As the moving elevator came to a stop, Abel tore himself away. No sooner had the doors opened when they were out in a rush to her room. They turned the corner down the long corridor of rooms.
“How far down?” Abel asked.
“All the way to the end,” she replied, taking even longer strides.
Feeling crazed with anticipation, Abel’s eyes searched for the ice/vending machine room like the one on his floor. The moment he saw it, he pulled her in it.
He answered her confused expression with a kiss as he closed the door and pushed her against it. “I need to refuel.”
All right, he needed to get laid more often. This was ridiculous. Obviously he’d been spending too much time training and not enough socializing, because he’d never felt this kind of urgency. Duly noted—he’d move a few things around in his schedule. She lifted her leg, bringing it around him.
“Careful,” he warned, biting her lower lip, “or I may just finish you up right here.”
“Do it,” was her only response and he froze.
Pulling back to look in her eyes, he could see she was serious. “Right here?” He asked, his hand already traveling down under her dress.
She nodded as his fingers felt the dampness between her legs and how hot she already was, pushing his heart into overdrive. He squeezed his eyes shut as he leaned his forehead against hers. “Sweetheart, don’t play with me.”
“I’m not,” she assured him breathlessly.
Abel opened his eyes, looking down at her big brown eyes. Up until that moment, he’d never noticed the golden specks that were sprinkled throughout. The desire he saw in them now was as urgent as his own, although he didn’t miss the slightest bit of apprehension. He couldn’t blame her. Anyone could walk in on them, though he was certain he’d be able to hold the door closed against the force of any one person or maybe two if they pushed against it. At least until he was sure she was decent. But he didn’t want her doing anything she wasn’t completely certain about.
“Are you sure about this?” He slipped his finger under her panties, her moisture inviting him all the way in.
She gasped, closing her eyes at his touch and nodded. “The kiss on the deck,” she said, her eyes remaining closed. Abel stared at her lips as she continued to speak a little more breathlessly with every caress of his finger to her silky wet skin. “The elevator . . . This . . . It’s exciting. I’ve never done something so . . .”
Nellie stopped to swallow, licking her lips, and Abel kissed her before she could finish. She didn’t have to. Suddenly the need to make this happen for her, make this experience with him be one she’d never forget, took over. It was just an ego thing. Nothing more. What guy didn’t like knowing they were a woman’s first anything?
Abel reached for his wallet, but his lips never left hers. She kissed him back just as urgently, her hands grasping the front of his shirt. She gasped harder at the sound of his zipper opening. So he stopped and looked at her wide eyes. “I’m sure,” she said before he could ask again, pulling him to her, and he groaned against her mouth.
Working fast, he got the condom on and reached under her sundress, pulling her panties down. When they hit the floor, he lifted her easily off the ground. “Wrap your legs around me.”
She did and he adjusted her, groaning loudly as he entered her. Kissing her harder now as he fucked her against the door, he tried in vain to stifle his moaning, but it felt so damn good to be inside her. Here he’d been under the assumption that women who had been married, especially for several years, wouldn’t be this tight. She was tighter than some of the younger women he’d been with, and it felt just too damn good to finally be doing what he could only fantasize about up until now—sogood it was almost alarming.
With her arms tightly wound around his neck, she began to pant with every thrust, and he went even harder, her panting growing more frantic as he felt her begin to pulsate around him each time he slid into her. Just as her entire body began to tremble with pleasure, he felt her arms tighten around his neck as she pulled her mouth away from him to breathe and cry out. Abel couldn’t hold it any longer either. Groaning again, he came in an explosive climax. Sinking deep inside her, he pushed his body against hers, burying his face in her sweet neck. Nellie clung onto him for dear life, gasping for air.
“We’re…” Nellie started to say before stopping to catch her breath, “still going back to my room, right?”
Abel smiled, squeezing her naked behind and looked up into her somewhat embarrassed eyes. “You bet this hot little ass we are. That was just an appetizer. I hope you have all night, because what I have in mind is gonna take that long.”

Her eyes sparkled now with excitement and she nodded. Hot damn! She was going to be more fun than he’d expected.
