~ Men of Inked by Chelle Bliss Blog Tour + Reviews + Giveaway ~

Throttle Me
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.

     This book was totally hot and steamy! I loved reading about Suzy and City’s story.. Though at times I wanted to slap Suzy because her check lists could have ruined everything, I’m glad she finally saw the light and realized that City is perfect for her. Ummm I mean whoever gives sex that good has to be perfect right?My question is… Where can I get my own City 😉I loved how well Chelle Bliss brought the characters to life and pulls you into the story. I wasn’t able to put this down until the very end! I can’t wait to see what Chelle has in store for us!

Hook Me

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.

michele review 5 star a     I thought City was hot, but I think Michael may be hotter! Do I really have to pick between the two? Who doesn’t love a hot MMA fighter who will fight for what he believes in, and help the woman of his dreams accomplish her own goals as well. That’s exactly what Michael does, while being the sexy beast that he is.Mia and Michael first meet after Michael breaks his ribs in a fight. Mia is the doctor that tends to his injuries and makes things stand at attention. Before Michael can get a date or a hook up out of Mia, she’s gone to see to other patients and he doesn’t see her again. Fast forward 6 months and the fun begins.Michael has a crazy ass woman named Tammy, who he’s been using as a fuck buddy lately. When I say crazy, I mean total bat shit, her mind is not part of this world crazy. You should read about the shit that she does, FUCKING CRAY CRAY! Michael tries to cut things off as soon as he realizes how crazy she is, but she won’t stay gone for long. Only question is, will she eventually realize that things are done between her and Michael and leave him alone, or will she think of one more crazy thing to try to trap him into a relationship with her?Mia’s life isn’t easy, she loves her jobs, but she doesn’t like the heartache and depression she feels after leaving work every night. The clinic brings her the most joy, but it isn’t possible for her to be there as much as she likes. So she works at the ER and tries to do as much as she can. Mia loves that she has the opportunity to save someone’s life, but losing one is the worst. So after a rough night at the ER and some restless sleep, she decides to head to the gym, but on the way in, she runs into a mountain of a man. Just so happens that this man is insanely hot and makes her panties wet just looking at him.

Mia first turns Michael down at first when he insists he takes her out to apologize, but after she sees him at a bar later that night, she can’t put up a fight any more. This man is a smooth talker, and she figures what the hell, she hasn’t been out with a man in way too long. However, when she goes out with Michael, what he ends up doing for her is nothing she ever expected from the MMA fighter. He ends up taking her breath away!

Once Michael and Mia finally start to spend time together, you instantly fall in love with them both! Michael’s soft and romantic side comes out when he’s around Mia, and Mia’s feistiness comes out when she’s with Michael. The just FIT with each other. Then those sex scenes, OMG! You’re fanning your face after you read them, and you pull up your computer so that you can google up pictures of Michael’s hardware. (OK well maybe that’s just me ; ) )

Tough times are ahead for these two though. Even though they seem like they are meant for each other, only time will tell. Will the events that unfold bring them closer together or will they rip these two apart?

I seriously love this series HARD! I just love how Chelle Bliss has you falling in love with the character in each book and she even connects to you the characters with smaller parts in the story. This is one of my top 10 favorite series and I can’t wait to read more! I’m excited to see what happens next in Throttled with City and Suzy, and I can’t wait to read Izzy’s story (That’s one I’m really excited about). If you haven’t read any of Chelle’s books, you are really missing out!

michele review5 star a
     I absolutely love City and Suzy! Though I love Michael, Mia, Izzy and Anthony, these two will always be my favorite. I’m so glad that Chelle decided to give City and Suzy their own book for their wedding, you know that these two would have some super-hot scenes and some personality clashes along the way.Can I say HOLLY HOTNESS? The book starts out with the whole family getting together for Thanksgiving dinner at City and Suzy’s new home, and of course these two can’t wait until AFTER dinner to do the doin it, oh no they go at it before and in the middle of dinner. I love that they absolutely can’t keep their hands off of each other.However while they are getting closer and closer to the wedding date, things don’t go according to plan. Things are said and done that can’t be taken back and feelings will be hurt. The only question is, will City and Suzy be able to make up before the wedding or will what happened between them be too much and the trust between them broken?All of the Men of Inked books are a MUST READ, but if you’ve read Throttle Me, this would be a must to see how City and Suzy end up. I really like how much Suzy has grown as a person since she and City got together and she is more out spoke like all the other woman in the Gallo family. I’m really anxious to see what Chelle has in store for our Izzy next!

Resist Me
 SynopsisIzzy 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?
michele review5 star aThough I’m absolutely in love with City and Michael, I think this may be my favorite book in the series. How can you not love a girl who knows what she wants and won’t settle for less? Izzy is my kind of girl! Straight and to the point and doesn’t take anyone’s shit. What’s not to love? Izzy and James first meet at City and Suzy’s wedding and have a one night stand, where in true Izzy fashion, she leaves before James wakes up. Though they had one hell of a night, James kind of freaks her out, so she isn’t staying around for any small morning chatter.

 When James has to come and save Izzy from a shady situation she gets herself into, the attraction is still there, much to Izzy’s dismay. She’d love nothing than to give in and let James show her body what it’s been missing, but she can’t stand the man. He’s like her brothers times 10 and she’s always said she’d never be with a man who will control her. However, it is really hard to tell her body that James is a no go.

 Since that first night, James has known that Izzy is THE ONE. He’s a patient man and is willing to wait her out. He’s got a plan to make her see that she’s meant to be with him, and that includes lots of hot steamy sex and showing her he wants an equal partner, not someone he can control. Ladies, I hope you are ready for some ice cold showers, because James is hot!

 James has been helping Izzy’s brother while he’s been undercover and things start to get way out of control. Somehow they’ve found out who Izzy is and are going to use her as bait. Will James be able to save Izzy and her brother Thomas? You’ll just have to read the book and see!

 Chelle totally out did herself with this book! It seems that every book in the Men of Inked series just gets better and better, and now I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us in Thomas’ story! If you haven’t started this series, you’re totally missing out on something absolutely amazing!

before ryan was mineExcerpt


The biggest moment of my life found me unexpectedly.  It crept up softly, and settled around me like a fuzzy blanket.  A mere whisper; it hit me like a sledgehammer.  At the time, I knew it was significant, but I didn’t realize just how those few seconds would change absolutely everything: how one brief glance could leave such an indelible stamp on the remainder of my life.  It would become a contradiction; an unstoppable force that would send me reeling out of my control, churning and shredding my emotions, but create the most incredible contentment I’d ever feel.  Contentment that could wrap me up in a warm, safe place or devastate me to the core and leave my heart in shambles.  It would become years of want and pain, lust and love… It would hurt like the deepest hell, but become the most euphoric and precious ecstasy I’d ever know.  I’d never forget that day, that moment; that glance.

It would wreck me.  It would make me.

I’m a single mother of one daughter, Olivia. She’s amazing in every way.

I was born in the Midwestern United States and educated at a private university where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Business Administration.

I’ve always been creative with art, music, theater and writing. I decided to write a story as a way to build a network for a business venture. The reader support of my stories and my overwhelming desire to find out where my characters would take me, soon had the writing morphing the business. No one was more shocked than I. When readers began nominating my work for online awards, it took my breath away and only made me love it more. It soon became clear that writing was, and should be, my focus.

Cover Designs by Cover It! Designs


The first time Jolene meets a mysterious man wearing flannel, it’s a case of mistaken identity. The second time, they end up against the side of a bar.

Third time’s a charm, right?

Jolene Hayes finds herself spending the summer in the picturesque mountains of Idaho in order to avoid a past fling. It’s a perfect escape, except for the one problem that keeps popping up: a sexy backcountry pilot named Ty Harrison. Jolene tries her hardest to resist his scruffy beard and flannel wearing ways, but eventually rationalizes that a summer fling would just be like the rest of them—love ‘em and leave ‘em and move on with her life.

Between these two are secrets that could tear them apart before they even get started, though. Life changes without warning, and dealing with the results leaves Jolene protecting her heart at all costs. Ty knows he is everything Jolene doesn’t want, but he can’t let go of the fiery siren.

Throw in the element of wilderness, a small town where secrets can’t hide and the past repeatedly showing up on Jolene’s front porch, the promise of a summer fling becomes complicated.
