Review for Chelle Bliss's Men of Inked Series

Throttle Me (Book 1)

Suzy’s a control freak and has her life mapped out - work hard, find a man with a stable job, and live happily ever after. She’s content with the status quo, but her plan comes to a screeching halt when he enters her life and turns it upside down.

City gave up on love when his heart was crushed in college, preferring to be the typical bachelor. He spends his nights hopping from one bed to another and his days working at his family tattoo shop, Inked. A chance encounter on a dark road makes him question what he had sworn off forever – a relationship.

A night of passion and lust causes them to question everything. Is City the knight in shining armor to the damsel in distress? Can their relationship survive when a fantasy falls apart and a secret comes out that changes everything?

This is the first book in the Men of Inked Series.


Holy Smokes I loved this book!!!! I couldn't put it down!!! Suzy is a crazy OCD lady, but she is so sweet and smart and she tries so hard to branch out and try new things. A for effort lol. She actually surprises me a lot throughout the story. She knows exactly what she wants out of life, or at least what she thinks she wants. That is, until she meets City.
This wasn't your everyday meeting. I like to think it was fate lol. Something unexplainable pushed these two together... Oh yeah, that would be the awesomely wonderful Chelle Bliss! Love this author! She keeps surpising me!
City has a new home in my heart! He is all man! He's sexy, muscular, and full of tattoos! Love it! He's an artist and really good at what he does. I absolutely have to read Throttled now lol. But don't worry, I won't be skipping Hook Me. That's next! 5 Stars!!

Hook Me (Book 2)

 Michael Gallo found his calling in life – he wants to kick ass. He works at Inked as a piercer, but spends his mornings training and dreaming of winning an UFC championship. Michael is the road to achieving his goal when a chance encounter alters his world forever. The title is no longer enough – he must capture the woman of his dreams.

Dr. Mia Greco is dedicated to saving lives and helping those less fortunate. She doesn’t have time to meet Mr. Right with her busy schedule. She buries herself in her work and helping humanity. Fate steps in and sweeps the carpet out from under her. She tries to deny the pull to him, a man that uses his fists for gain, but the universe won’t let her walk away so easy and Michael isn’t one to take no for an answer.

He has a secret that may rip them apart. There are forces bigger than them at work; drawing them in and making their worlds collide – not letting either one of them walk away.


Holy Mother Of All Things Sexy!!! I think I am in love! Yes, I am aware that these are fictional characters… But who cares!!!! Michael Gallo is perfection!!! Okay, so if it isn’t obvious, I am loving this series. I just can’t form the right words for it. This book is about fate pushing two people together. Michael is a professional fighter and absolutely loves what he does for a living. Mia is a doctor and is completely against violence. When these two first meet, Michael, who is undefeated, is needing some mending. He’d just got out of a fight and was hurting kinda bad. When he first sees her, he decides he needs to pursue her, but when she leaves the room she never comes back. She just blew him off!!! So after a while, they run into each other again. Literally, he knocked her on her ass! Not intentionally though J  After that, Michael is relentless; he just has to have her!!! After getting the girl, Michael is deliriously happy and getting prepared for a huge fight. Just when things were getting on track, in walks CRAZY! Tammy is certifiable; like literally psychotic! She meant nothing to Michael. She was just a bump in the night for him and they only bumped twice! Meanwhile, Tammy swears they are meant to be together and when she can’t hang on to him, she pulls out the big guns!!! WHO DOES THAT!!! And while his brother (City) is in the hospital from an accident and they don’t know if he’s going to make it or not! I know, I know, you just want to know what she did huh??? You should read it then! J  Mia leaves Michael and tells him she wants nothing to do with him and that he needed to do the right thing. Well Michael refuses to give up on Mia. He calls and calls and texts and texts Mia, but gets no response. Just when he’s about to just give up, he’s given some good advice and grabs his balls and handles this like a real Gallo man! He goes to get his woman! I just love a persistent man!! But can he convince her that Crazy Tammy is delusional? Does he have enough evidence to get her to believe him and come back to him? I mean, fate pushed them together so far. Maybe it’ll happen again! ;)  This was by far, my most favorite book of the series. 5 stars!

Throttled (Book 2.5)

She’s about to become his – Mrs. Joseph Gallo.

All she wants is to be his, but his possessiveness days before the wedding has her questioning the reality of a happily ever after.

He’s not easy. He’s territorial and doesn’t share well with others.

City’s staking his claim, making Suzy his forever.

Their future teeters precariously on the cliff of matrimonial bliss.

Will their love survive his alpha nature or will it all unravel before she can say ‘I do’?


Just Awwwwwwwww!!!! Is all I can really say! It was so beautiful! But I have to say, I was so disappointed in City! He was my favorite! I just couldn’t believe how he just lost it like that L. Poor Suzy did not deserve that. I just sat there with my mouth hanging wide open until the next morning (in the book). Suzy shoulda made him squirm longer! Alcohol is not an excuse for the things he said. I’m so mad at him… well not anymore... But I was! This book is about Suzy and City’s life changes. Marriage! Oh and how can I forget about the little surprise at the end ;)
Mrs. G, (my favorite character! She’s a boss) finally gets her wish! All that nagging paid off! I just loved this book, but I do have to say that I liked all the other books in this series more. 4 Stars!

Resist Me (Book 3)

 Izzy Gallo has never been described as a member of the weaker sex. She’s a woman who doesn’t take shit from anyone. Growing up with four older overprotective brothers has hardened her, making her a force to be reckoned with.

Against the wishes of her two brothers, Joe and Mike, Izzy takes a weekend trip to Bike Week in Daytona, turning her world upside down.

Over her head, in a world she doesn’t understand, there’s only one man who can save her.

James Caldo has dedicated his life to protect and serve as a member of the DEA. He’s cocky, overbearing, and doesn’t take no for an answer – the Gallo men have nothing on him.

When their paths cross, James makes Izzy question everything she believes about completely surrendering to the opposite sex.

Does James have what it takes to overpower the headstrong Izzy, capturing her heart forever?


Yes! Izzy’s story! Izzy is a bad ass chick that doesn’t take shit from anyone, especially not men! Her brother’s have been crazy protective of her all of her life and they taught her all she needs to know to protect herself. Izzy gets mixed up in some bad stuff when she goes to bike week with her friend Flash. He’s prospecting for a MC. He takes Izzy with him when he goes to meet up with the guys from the club. Izzy is uncomfortable, but she gets the shock of a lifetime while she is there. Izzy wanted to leave but wasn’t allowed, and Flash all of a sudden turns in to a punk sissy and can’t help her. I’m not going to lie, I was terrified for Iz! I wanted to reach in the book and punch Flash in the face! I know the circumstances of it and all, but it doesn’t make it easier. Izzy is able to get away with the help of one of her brothers, and ends up in the company of the one person she should run far away from, James, her brother’s partner, and her one night stand from City and Suzy’s wedding.
James decides that he has to have Izzy. He knows she’s going to fight him all the way, but he can handle it, can’t he? I wish Izzy could see how perfect James is for her. I didn’t really like James at first. I felt he was an arrogant asshole…. And he is! But he’s the right fit for Izzy. She just refuses to see it. After a while, she starts to grow fond of him and then something bad happens. James and Thomas are so f’n awesome!!! I absolutely love this team! I just can’t wait for Thomas’ book to come out! And I just NEED to know where Izzy and James’ story goes! 5 Stars!!!!
