    1. 4 Stars.Whenever I read a book by this Author I simply cannot put it down,I read this in just over 24 hours.So it's just over a year into David and Raymond's relationship and while they obviously love each other things definitely aren't going smoothly.Raymond is desperately trying to better himself.He's working two jobs and attending college in the evening.As a result he's too exhausted to give David the attention he craves.David is becoming more and more insecure and paranoid.He can't help comp [...]

    2. LIVE!➦It's a pretty rare occurrence these days for me to read more than one book about the same couple. But this is Santino Hassell, so This book is a bit on a short side and is a continuation of David and Raymond's story from the second book in the Five Boroughs series.➦In this installment we got to see the struggles David and Raymond faced as a couple. Raymond juggling two jobs and college and that leaves very little time for his lover. But the financial situation he has found himself in c [...]

    3. Me when I get a new Hassell book on my Kindle:Me when I get a new book in a series I love with established couples:Me when a Hassell book with an established couple from the Five Boroughs series comes:Raymond and David, though not my favorite couple of the series, are still deep in my heart from Sunset Park. Raymond, especially, came a long way from where he was in Sutphin Boulevard. And these two MCs got a hard won HFN in Book 2. A lot of people worry about an author fucking with a couple's HEA [...]

    4. Santino Hassell:You have again delivered an outstanding story. I typically avoid sequels about established couples like the plague. They're usually not necessary-IMO.But it's you, and I'm a HUGE fangirl of yours, so I had to read it, and you gave me everything that I love about your style of writing. This installment of The Five Boroughs is the follow-up to Raymond and David. Last we left them they were finally together, and this book fast forwards to a year and a half later. I'm not going to re [...]

    5. 4.5 StarsWhen I read Sunset Park (the second installment in this series), I was so disappointed in David but some of my friends told me if I read this one I could understand him better and guess what? Not only I did understand him and his reasons but also I liked him! He just wanted to speak with Reymond about their problems and about his fears, about what’s in his mind and his insecurities… and as you know everything is not solved by itself! But the main problem is Reymond didn’t want to [...]

    6. ***5 Stars***Oh Santino, you put my emotions through the ringerd you know what? I loved every single second of it!! I swear I'm going to start doodling your name on my notebooks. Interborough comes back to visit Raymond and David from Sunset Park. Life is piling on more and more stuff on their already full and stressful plates. And with the days getting busier and longer, the two spend more time apartputting distance and an unwelcome strain on their relationship. Any time together was spent clin [...]

    7. If you read Sunset Park, you know that there were (imo) unresolved issues. Interborough is a necessary book. Sometimes in romance I want an escape, but I also want realness. And Santino's writing, his characters, his storylines are always REAL. That what this book is. It's a beloved couple who love each other but need to work through some issues if they want to stay together.Sunset Park was an HFN. Interborough is an HEA with an epilogue that's alone worth the price of the book.In case you can't [...]

    8. 4.5 Stars!I survived.That was tough. And a bit draining. Emotionally exhausting even. Yet I couldn't stop reading. What is it about Santino Hassell's books? Let's face it, there was very little happy here. The whole time I'm reading these are the thoughts running through my head."Are they going to fight the whole book?""David why are you being such a whiner?""Raymond you're an asshole!""More bickering? Really?""Okay, that was HOT! HOT helps."“David…LAY. OFF. THE. DRINKING.”No, no, no.t mor [...]

    9. 5 HUGE stars for this wonderful story Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Every word, every chapter, every painful scene was worth it in the end, for the most beautiful ending! Review soon.

    10. Santino Hassell's stories are as realistic as romance can get, but manis was a slice of real life. It also came to solidify the fact that Raymond Rodriguez is my favorite character in the Five Boroughs series, and one of my favorite book characters ever!Can I start from the writing? Godis man's writing makes me feel like coming home, or like my best friend is talking to me. It soothes my insides, I tell you. Hassell NAILED the first person alternating POV, which fitted the story perfectly.Interb [...]

    11. 4.5 Stars​Man, Santino Hassell sure knows how to put a couple through hell before giving them their happy (not to mention his readers!). David and Raymond really earn their HEA. But, the good news is that they actually get a solid HEA here, rather than the HFN they got at the end of Sunset Park. Happy Achievement, unlocked!​ ​I've gotta say, though, Interborough was one ​emotionally ​exhausting read.​​Interborough, minus the happy ending, is what happens when a couple doesn't take [...]

    12. Reread October 2017 and loved it as much as the first time, if not more:Absolutely brilliant!1. This is a 'I loved every little moment of this' book. Santino Hassel is a master story teller, and Interborough was breath-taking and gripping from the beginning to the end. The relationship driven plot was pure joy every little step of the way. 2. This is a 'I loved both MCs equally although neither is perfect' book. We left David and Ray in a HFN at the end of book 2. Now, a year later, Raymond is a [...]

    13. 5 real life starsInterborough picks up a year and half into Raymond and David’s relationship. Life is a struggle at the moment, with Raymond working 2 jobs plus school. David is worried about being reviewed at work and receiving tenure. To make matters worse, with Raymond gone all the time, David’s insecurities are starting to nag him. He is worried about his relationship with Raymond is turning into is previous relationship that ended in a disaster.As much as I love being in love, I know th [...]

    14. 5 amazing Rayvid stars I devoured this in one sitting 7 hours with very little bathroom break but it was worth it.Reading this felt too real. Raymond and David awww Swooon these two are amazing together I felt like these were my friends and I was witnessing the rise and fall and rise again of their relationship. I was happy while reading and sad and then happy again… As much as I love being in love, I know that the existence of it isn't a magic ticket to a happy ending. And I know that as much [...]

    15. Nothing less than 5 stars from meBelieve me when I say, Santino Hassell must be some kind of wizard. If I did not know beforehand that he wrote Interborough to give Ray and David a solid HEA, I would never thought it possible that they would make it. But the fact that he accomplished it in such realistic and believable fashion seems to make the difference.Ray tries to prove himself and the world that he virtually did man-up, that he is able to show responsibility and handle his own life, but wit [...]

    16. Me gustaría señalar algo antes de empezar la review. Teniendo en cuenta el trabajo anterior de Santino y que hay una editorial detrás, creo que la responsabilidad recae en el editor, por esto y por mi cariño hacia el autor no lo he tenido en cuenta en mi valoración, pero creo que debo mencionarlo. En el libro hay varias frases en español, igual que en los anteriores de la serie. Ese español en los tres libros anteriores había sido siempre cuidado con mimo, no solo lo eran los personajes [...]

    17. ****4 Stars****Interborough brings back Raymond and David, the two MC's from book 2 in this series. It portrays without any masks or bullshit a couple struggling with the pressures of real life.It shows how merciless jobs, school and responsibilities weigh on both sides.It shows how hard this pressure can hits and affects a relationship.It shows how it reflects in a couple interactions, draining a relationship. Well, isn’t real life a bitch?At last but not least, it shows how important the dia [...]

    18. To say I enjoyed this would be a drastic understatement. So here it is me gushing my loveMy review copy of this is filled with highlights and notes. Moments that made me laugh. Moments that made me angry. Moments that made me cringe and pull my hair out because the high level of tension I was feeling threatened to make me throw my iPad across the room. There are highlighted sections where I went crazy because of the things Ray and David said to each other. Hurtful and dreadful things And moments [...]

    19. This is not a standalone : this is the continuation (and the missing epilogue) of Sunset Park, the story of Ray and David. And not a fluffy and comforting tale, far, far, far away from that.That love is sometimes not enough to make a relationship work is a reality and Ray and David are the perfect example. It's undeniable they really are into each other and they are scorchingly HOT together. But the brutal schedule Ray is going through to prove that he’s not worthless and won’t give up each [...]

    20. First Impressions of this book were pretty muddled. When I found out that Santino was writing another book featuring #Rayvid I was ecstatic - over the top happy. I loved my guys the first time around, why would I not want to read more about their happily ever after? Well, therein is the issue - Santino put these poor guys through the ringer in this book. There were moments, Not gonna lie - that I wanted to reach out "virtually" and smack Mr. Hassell, because how dare he do this to Raymond and Da [...]

    21. OMGoshhh I love Santino's writing and this one FabulousRaymond and David.eir relationship is damn hot and sizzling and sharp at the edges.How they live around each other, what comes out of their mouthspecially Raymonds.They are in love and the physical connection is hot as hellBut life is hard on them. in a downwards spiral. They aren't together as much as they should be. It's wrecking Davidd Raymond is so hard trying to hold the pieces together. Shit it's so awful watching.Raymond shivers to co [...]

    22. Update for audio 5/19/2017:Michael Ferraiuolo is the perfect narrator for this series. 100% - he brilliantly narrates these characters, bringing the emotion and sentiment of the story to life.Absolutely loved the audio - highly recommended.~~**~~**~~*~~**~~**~~**~~**~~**~~**~~4.5 starsThis is such a realistic romance, where the main characters are far from perfect, and screw up (sometimes royally), where they are just these complex and flawed people, but who are also so completely relatable, tha [...]

    23. I've been debating if I should just rate this book and leave it at that, because my friends and I have nitpicked it to death and I'm kind of over the whole thing. But here it is.I was ambivalent about the book when I realised Santino was going back to Raymond and David. On the one hand, I really liked Sunset Park and I absolutely adore Raymond. On the other hand, I wasn't sure there needed to be a second book with them as the protagonists, and that feeling grew after I read the summary, which ma [...]

    24. And the Five Boroughs marathon continuesSo back on Mother's Day my hubby in his inimitable wisdom decided that since I was now listening to audiobooks what better gift than to treat me to some new ones and I got to go shopping for them so I could pick what I wanted and while I wanted more than a few this series was at the top of my list, especially since I had this one to review. Overall it was money well spent because not only did I love them but I am absolutely dying to go back to the beginnin [...]

    25. 4.25 stars!At the end of Sunset Park, Raymond and David’s relationship still needed a lot of work. It’s not uncommon for Santino Hassell’s books to end short of a strong HEA, but in this case I wondered whether David and Raymond would be able to make it in the long run. So I was stoked when I found out that they’d be getting a second book that would give them their happy ending! For most of ‘Interborough’, David and Raymond are hot messes. They constantly fight and argue. David is ne [...]

    26. *ARC received in exchange for a review*For starter, getting a chance to read one of Santino’s books always make me giddy.Now digging into this one…Honest. Emotional. Real…If my word count is limited, that’s what I would say about this. I finished the book days before I’m writing this, and those are the words that continue to linger in my head. For whatever reason, the realness of the emotions that this book evoked out of me punched me straight in the gut…Orson Welles said, “If you [...]

    27. I had the pleasure of reading an early draft of this book. Like the previous books, you are not going to want to put it down. Intriguing, thought-provoking, sexy times a million and just an all around great read. What more could you ask for.

    28. This was an awesome buddy read, but since I am finished and some of the BR group isn't, I will wait with my review until they are all done ;)I did really enjoy this one ;)

    29. 3,5 estrellas, redondeadas a la baja por los fallos tontos en el español = I liked itSantino, escribes genial, chico, pero ay, no hemos conectado en este viaje y bien que lo siento. Pienso seguir leyéndome todo lo que escribas y me sigo considerando una Santiñola, aunque alguna me haga la cruz del gato tras leer mi reseña *coge aire*Que comiencen los juegos: Atención, opinión impopularEmpiezo dejando claro que no soy muy fan de Rayvid, y ahí ya, vamos mal xDDDD Si el binomio David/Ray no [...]
