Official Review! Flame (Men Of Inked:Heatwave #1) by Chelle Bliss


Could you love a man surrounded by danger?

Gigi Gallo’s childhood was filled with the roar of a motorcycle and the hum of a tattoo gun. Fresh out of college, she’s about to start working at her family’s tattoo studio — Inked. But when she showed up the first day, she never expected to run into someone tall, dark, and totally sexy from her not-so-innocent past.

Pike Moore is a bossy biker with a cocky attitude and an even bigger ego. He came to Inked to start over. New town. New job. New roots. None of that included coming face-to-face with the hot chick who spent a week in his bed before she vanished without a trace.

But when Pike’s dark family history catches up with him, can he stop Gigi from being caught in the crossfire?

Flame is book one in the Men of Inked: Heatwave series by USA Today bestselling author Chelle Bliss. The Men of Inked: Heatwave series features steamy romance, hot heroes, and strong women.


I received a copy and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own.

Nothing is better than being back in the arms of the Gallo family and getting up close and personal with the daughter of Joe “City” Gallo who makes a reader melt like butter every time he calls Suzy “sugar” and Miss goody, goody two shoes Suzy who once she sets eyes on her dirty talking Gallo, reveals a kinky side that all the readers love to read about. Chelle Bliss knows just what her readers like after having us fall head over heels for the Florida Gallos that started it all, taking us to Chicago to get down and dirty with their equally hot cousins up North, and now she gives us the next generation to keep us laughing and warm long into the night. I am just not sure how much more my heart can take! Gigi Gallo and Pike Moore set the Gallo fires burning again with their scorching love affair and family drama. It wasn’t long and Chelle Bliss had me encased in their heat and enraptured with all the danger and suspense that surrounds them.

Gigi Gallo brings us back to the beginning days of the Gallos Men Of Inked series and has us pining for Chelle Bliss’ older fictional couples like never before. Chelle wrote her newest heroine so well, that I couldn’t help but see glimpses of her talented ink artist father City and her sassy, gorgeous mother Suzy. Gigi enveloped me in warmth with her witty comebacks, her oozing sex appeal, and her huge Gallo heart and kept me hanging with every sway of her hips and word she uttered.

From the moment Pike was introduced with his sexy bike and even sexier bod, he had my heart. I was all his and was almost jealous to have to share him with Gigi. If there is anyone who needs the love of the Gallo family and fiery grit of Gigi by his side, it is most definitely Pike. I keep thinking with each new hero handcrafted by Chelle Bliss that she can’t possibly keep checking all of my boxes of top book boyfriends but she does each and every time with heroes that are unique and have me fallen at their feet for different reasons.

Chelle Bliss delivers a beginning to the next generation of Gallos that will leave you unable to catch your breath, heart racing, and completely besotted once again with the Gallo family. I highly recommend Flame, the first book in the Men of Inked: Heatwave series, for another emotional, drama filled love story full of laughter and steam beyond measure. Me along with every other Chelle Bliss fan out there, will never be able to get enough of the Gallo family. She has had us hooked from the moment she introduced City and Suzy and we will continue to wait with bated breath for more, because we are insatiable for this crazy, passionate, Italian family that we like to think of as our own.
