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 is a known fact that I have a love/hate relationship with Elizabeth Reyes books. I love them so much that I hate when they end and having to wait for another book from her is torture. Elizabeth Reyes is a must read author for me, so I read it without even reading the synopsis. I was so surprised right along with Lila to find out who Sonny really was and I loved it!! I had been waiting for him to finally find his true love!! Thank you Elizabeth for continuing to give us fresh, fun, family fiction. Thank you for continuing to push the bar by writing diverse characters with such heart and soul. Books by authors like Elizabeth Reyes make me so proud to be Latina. We are a rich, fun, passionate culture and I love that these books capture all of that passion.
