This book threw me for a loop compared to how much I enjoyed Noah & Gio's books. Hector mostly deals with regrets from high school and trying to make up for them. As we know, Hector is the youngest of the 5th Street fighters. We meet Charlee, a super smart chess player at the college Hector will be attending for chess tournaments. Hector is drawn to Charlee by her flaming red hair and bright blue eyes, as well as her intelligence. He cannot keep his eyes off her and he can't wait to challenge her at chess. When he invites his chess group to his fight nights at 5th Street, Hector can't stand the locker room talk about the girl he's got his sights on.
The reasoning behind my rating compared to what I thought about the previous books in the series was that I felt that the beginning half of the book seemed entirely different than the second half. The beginning half of the book the tension remained high and there was barely a hint of a low note in the story line, then the second half of the book seemed to just go downhill and become too overly chaotic and dramatic. The characters did not seem similar to or relative in either half of the book.
