    Favorite Quotes: The guy isn’t just hot, he’s Freaking Fine with capital Fs… You’re a good kid. If I had a son, I’d want him to be just like you, Pike.

Chelle Bliss kicks off her new series with a bang - featuring the next generation of sassy and brassy troublemakers with a first installment that left me tapping my little foot and eager for the next one. The storylines were heaving with irreverent humor, family drama, and breath-stealing sensual steam as well as generous lashings of danger and suspense. I inhaled this engaging tale with a steady smirk and a few gasps for good measure. Please, hurry with part two Ms. Bliss, before the little pea in my brain forgets all the deliciously juicy details.

    Right, okay... I have had a few days to sit on this review and I am still as speechless as I was when I first finished the book. This is the biggest thing I dread most when I read a book that hits me hard, I struggle to review it, I struggle to put into words (Without spoilers) on how amazing the book was and this is very much the case for me when it comes to Flame. Gah! Chelle is a genius, she can weave together words and piece together an amazing plot that will grab your attention from page one Right, okay... I have had a few days to sit on this review and I am still as speechless as I was when I first finished the book. This is the biggest thing I dread most when I read a book that hits me hard, I struggle to review it, I struggle to put into words (Without spoilers) on how amazing the book was and this is very much the case for me when it comes to Flame. Gah! Chelle is a genius, she can weave together words and piece together an amazing plot that will grab your attention from page one to the last page of the book. This book was no exception. I went into this book not knowing what to expect, well I did know to expect it to be amazing... but this? This is pure gold. Flame is the next generation of Men of Inked and this book is Gigi's story, and what a story it was. Gigi is a grown woman now and she has started to live her own life. She is ambitious and she wants to make a difference in her world, she wants to make a mark and this book is just that for her. She does make a difference and she does make a mark on this crazy world her and her family are in. Gigi was perfect. She was sassy, feisty, witty, smart and determined, she is determined to live her life for herself, to take care of herself. She truly is a Gallo and she fits in perfectly! Enters Pike... He is alpha as hell, domineering and normally gets what he wants. HE IS PERFECTION!! Gigi thought she had dodged him after a wild night together, but he has wanted to be in the Inked world for the longest time, so when he finally is given the chance, he doesn't pass it up. But on his first day, he saw the last woman he expected to see again, Gigi. A girl who he couldn't seem to let go of since one crazy night they spent together...and now? She was his boss's daughter... Will Gigi give him the time of day? Will Pike get his chance at making this woman completely and utterly his and his only. Is Gigi prepared for what's about to come her way when it comes to this man? This book was intense, to say the least... The chemistry between these two was kindle melting hot, I found myself fanning myself time and time again. IT WAS HOT AS HELL! It only intensified as the book progressed and the push and pull between the two was enough to drive me nuts! I was cheering these two on from the start. They were perfect together. Both personalities bounced off each other that made me fall in love with them. Chelle Bliss is a master at her craft and when it comes to anything to do with the Men of Inked series and spin-offs, she is in her element. She always delivers an outstanding read and I always know that I will love it and it was no different with this book. It is an epic start to the next generation. Probably one of a couple of series that I thought the whole "Next Gen" thing was actually amazing. She made it work and added another incredible story to what is a fucking amazing series of books. Truly EPIC. 6 Stars, because 5 isn't enough!

Gigi was loved and protected her whole life by her huge family of badass, but former bad boys and trouble makers (aka The original inked men series). Pike is her complete opposite there... A loner without any good parent around to give a fuck. But they both share a love for ink, freedom and a huge attraction. I liked the pace of the story and how I got a bit of everything... Love, sex, laugh, action, drama and family. Now to the next one, because yeah ... There's a cliffhanger! 😂

    So I'll be honest. I'm not a "hero pushover." In short, that means that if I declare a romance hero has blown my socks off, he has to have more than a pretty face and a great set of abs. He has to have all the essentials under the hood too: a mind, heart, and soul that are going to make me see what's inside, and to fall in love with him from the inside out.

He has to have all the essentials under the hood too: a mind, heart, and soul that are going to make me see what's inside, and to fall in love with him from the inside out. I am telling you right now: Pike Moore is one of those heroes. So it's no secret that I feel this way about MANY of Chelle Bliss's fictional men. There's a reason the woman stands with the publishing royalty of creating memorable alpha heroes. But gang, this dude Pike is a cut above her norm. He's smart, compassionate, heroic, and just completely worthy of a few drops of drool from the second he appears on page--and from there, it only gets better and better and better, until a third act that had me flipping pages as fast as I damn could. This, my friends, is a man worth remembering. A hero worth savoring. And best of all, Bliss has given him a heroine, Gigi Gallo, who's equally as brave, bold, and altogether awesome. Their insta-love-goes-enemies-to-lovers is so deftly crafted and beautifully told! The best part is, Bliss never "info dumps" on readers. She SHOWS this electric attraction with Pike and Gigi through exceptional dialogue, wonderful plot twists, and a fictional world that absolutely had me wanting more...so much more!

I have no problems with cigarettes and/or smoking but I fail to see the sexy with a guy having one dangling from his mouth. There are a lot of covers with this type of imagine and I just don't know what is happening. And what exactly is his hand doing inside his shirt? #notaskingforafriend *sigh* clearly the cover is a #fail for me but try not to gang up on me in the comments, k, tks.

If you know me, you know I love all things Gallo family from Chelle. It's like being wrapped up in a warm blanket of love and happiness, and as long as Chelle continues to write about this family, this blogger will be a happy girl. Joe and Suzy's oldest daughter, Gigi, is now old enough to have all the experiences she has wanted to claim for the longest time--going to school, being employed by her family's' tattoo shop. She had it all going for her. What she didn't count on was coming face-to-face with the one man who she thought she left high and dry one wild weekend she had. But, as she soon comes to realize, Pike is not a man to fool, and in the end, Gigi is the one that will realize she is a fool, all right--a fool in the game of love. When Pike sees the girl he had one hot and wild night with, he knew he would stop at nothing to make her officially his in every capacity. What he didn't count on was landing a job at one of the hottest tattoo shops in the area--one owned by said hot girl's family. But Pike is determined to show Gigi that what they had that one wild weekend can turn into something that will last for a lifetime. THE GALLO'S ARE BACK, BABY!!! Grab this latest book by Chelle, I PROMISE you will NOT be disappointed!!!

She was a little naive but was sweet. Fast forward 1 year and I found her to be sassy but rude. She could go from tough take charge to needy and in one sentence. And seemed so wishy washy. To me, she had a hard time finding her personality but then again she is only 21. Flame focused on Pike and GiGi’s romantic relationship. They had connection but I felt it was one sided. Pike was ready too go all in but GiGi held so much back. Again, this could be because of her age . In addition to their relationship this book held a good amount of drama and suspense. I loved that the entire Gallo family was represented in this book. There were parts of the storyline that didn’t make sense or were glanced over. Since this ends on a cliffhanger, I’m hoping Chelle Bliss wraps up the loose questions in Burn. Review copy provided for a voluntary review.

    The heroine is a child, not only in age but in attitude and all. She is basically dared to eff the hott biker, lies about her age, boo-hoos about her ex, passes out and then spreads them the next day. The hot biker, is basically 6 years older than her, treats her like a spoiled bitch that she is and bam. The characters were not developed at all. The author could have made the heroine way more approachable and a tad bit mature but this was honestly the most boring 40% on a book I spent.

    My first Chelle Bliss book. OMG! Where have I been? This is one hot, steamy, seductive, and tantalizing bit of kicka$$ writing. I went into this knowing nothing about the Gallo family, and previous books, and it didn't matter at all. FLAME can totally be read as a standalone! With that said, if you're a fan of sexy as f#ck, dirty-talking, ALPHA men, then Pike is going to be right up your alley. He's fierce. Fierce in bed. Fiercely protective. And fiercely committed to what he wants. That happens My first Chelle Bliss book. OMG! Where have I been? This is one hot, steamy, seductive, and tantalizing bit of kicka$$ writing.

The connection. The heat. The bond between Pike and Gigi, and honestly between Gigi and her family. I felt as if I was a part of the strength of the Gallo family. I loved every bit of this book from beginning to end, and now I'm looking forward to going back to the beginning and reading about this tightknit family.

She was not prepared for the surprise waiting for her when she gets to work. Will she be able to keep her secret? Pike has been searching for something more for the past 10 years. Leaving home at a young age and not looking back to the parents that didn't really care for him. Thankful for his Grandma who showed him some love and taught some valuable lessons. Finally achieving his dream of working at the best tattoo shop in Florida. He has not stopped thinking about that girl since she slipped out on him 15 months ago. He was not prepared to see here at Inked. Even less prepared for her to pretend she had no idea who he was. Can they keep up the charade? Or will the threats from his past bring them back together? Will Poke survive the Gallo clan? I was hooked in quickly with the sexy chemistry, the suspense that blind sides everyone. Then we get to the end and I need more. I am not finished with these characters yet. The wait begins. *** Advanced copy provided in exchange for an honest review ***

    I loved Chelle Bliss’s Men of Inked. All it took was FLAME for me to be all in with this new series as well. Love it when I see characters grow up and have their own stories. HOT. HOT. HOT. Love feisty, smart heroines? Face fanning scenes? Drop what you’re doing and read FLAME. The Gallo’s are back and you won’t want to miss the fun.

    I love the Gallo family and their fierce loyalty to each other. It was so great seeing all of the family from the original series and while I love all of the characters, Izzy has always been my favorite. It’s like a family reunion, getting to see my favorite couples as they’ve gotten older and yet still so in love. Gigi Gallo is Joe (City) and Suzy’s oldest daughter and is SO much like Izzy, not wanting anyone to tell her what to do.

It was so great seeing all of the family from the original series and while I love all of the characters, Izzy has always been my favorite. It’s like a family reunion, getting to see my favorite couples as they’ve gotten older and yet still so in love. Gigi Gallo is Joe (City) and Suzy’s oldest daughter and is SO much like Izzy, not wanting anyone to tell her what to do. She’s feisty, hardheaded and knows what she wants to do in life. She knows she’s lucky to have such loving parents and extended family even while everyone knows everyone else’s business and always referred to as ‘little girl’. It was funny to see how fast news would spread in such a large family! When she goes on spring break with her cousin and friends, she makes a potentially bad decision when she leaves the bar with the stranger known as Pike. Fifteen months later and a college graduate, she’s ready to take her place at Inked and sees Pike again. Pike is a gorgeous, cocky man and yet can be so sweet to Gigi. He’s lived through a bad childhood and doesn’t understand having such a close and loving family like the Gallo’s. He was a little wild for a while but now is working on honing his art. The title Flame for the book is so appropriate as their connection is red-hot even though they initially try to stay away from each other. The adventure heats up with motorcycle gangs, criminals, threats, and more while Pike protects Gigi. This allows Thomas and James especially, to show what they are best at with their connections and ability to protect their loved ones. Unfortunately for Pike, Gigi has a very protective father and uncles, who aren’t happy with the situation. Their conversations were so hilarious even though they had done some of the same things when they were younger. When Mama Gallo said to be a dinner, even Pike is required to go. With trepidation, he faces Mama first, then the other women and the men. Fran brought the funny and crazy when meeting Pike. I love this family and wish they were mine! The ending is a cliffhanger and left me anxious to see what happens next. I know there will be a happy ending but getting there will be a roller coaster ride for sure. Many times I’m left wanting more of characters and with this new series, I get to not only see my favorite characters but also their children. I can’t wait to read the sequel to Pike and Gigi’s story and to see others from this generation. Another hit for Ms. Bliss!

    Love the Gallos This was my first Chelle Bliss book and well now she has been added to my one-click list and I need a week off work to go binge read the rest of the Gallo family. I loved the characters, the tough alpha macho men who go soft for their women is so hot and the spunky smart ass women.

    Flame is fanfreakingtastic! Chelle Bliss has clearly brought her writing to another level as the story of Gigi Gallo, daughter to City and Suzy, kept me captivated from the very first words until the last lines were read. I just adore Gigi and that crazy Gallo spirit. Despite her young years, the woman knows what she wants and when she wants it and prayers are definitely needed for anyone who dares tell her no. Even her macho father and the rest of the protective family she loves with all of her Flame is fanfreakingtastic! Chelle Bliss has clearly brought her writing to another level as the story of Gigi Gallo, daughter to City and Suzy, kept me captivated from the very first words until the last lines were read. I just adore Gigi and that crazy Gallo spirit. Despite her young years, the woman knows what she wants and when she wants it and prayers are definitely needed for anyone who dares tell her no. Even her macho father and the rest of the protective family she loves with all of her heart. There is amazing banter, as usual, when these Gallos are together and trying their hardest not to lose tempers or their minds! Gigi is as feisty as her dear Aunt Izzy and gives everyone more than their fair share of worry when she finds Pike Moore in her life after 'knowing' him 15 months prior. As not only the man who will be manning a chair at her beloved Inked but as the one who is destined to drive her a bit crazy, both in and out of the bedroom. The flow of this story is perfect, Bliss allowing Gigi and Pike to reacquaint themselves while both trying their hardest to pretend they don't know each other at the same time still lusting for one more taste. The hilarity at the situation is not lost on either of them, realizing how interwoven their lives truly are now. Bliss takes her time in reigniting the passion, and boy is there plenty to swoon over once that fire is lit. The true love that emerges is just that: sincere and credible. Pike is sexy as sin but has a heart of gold. And Gigi is feisty and a bit of a smart-ass but has a vulnerability that only a man like Pike can protect. They are both a bit skittish when it comes to matters of the heart but they somehow find a way, and it's one hell of a crazy path they embark upon, to be that forever someone to each other no matter what. There is much more than just romance in this well thought-out and perfectly-paced book as Pike's past comes back with a vengeance and James Gallo along with his brothers get to show a bit of their muscle, both figuratively and literally, usually held under wraps. There are layers to this book that took me by surprise and added the absolute right touch to the burgeoning romance between Gigi and Pike. The story is not over as we now wait for book two and what promises to be one wild conclusion to this unexpected love affair. I can only imagine what is to come and hope the wait isn't too long. Chelle Bliss has written some of her best words and happily give Flame a huge 5 stars!

    The Gallo family are one of my all time favourite families so when I heard we were going to get the next generation stories in the Men of Inked: Heatwave Series I was excited and let me tell you Flame did not disappoint it was everything I have come to expect from this very talented author and so much more. Chelle Bliss has once again given us everything we want in a great read whilst catching up with those swoon worthy now older Gallo’s and their families. If you watched Gigi grow up in the earl The Gallo family are one of my all time favourite families so when I heard we were going to get the next generation stories in the Men of Inked: Heatwave Series I was excited and let me tell you Flame did not disappoint it was everything I have come to expect from this very talented author and so much more. Chelle Bliss has once again given us everything we want in a great read whilst catching up with those swoon worthy now older Gallo’s and their families. If you watched Gigi grow up in the earlier books you know it was going to take a special type of man to tame her, the man she gives her love to needs to be strong, passionate and pure alpha. Pike is perfect for Gigi he won’t stand for any nonsense and he will protect her with his life if needed but will her father and the rest of the Gallo clan welcome him into their life’s ......... I loved this book, it gave me all the feels I want in a brilliant read, strong characters with sizzling chemistry as well as catching up with old favourites made this the perfect read but that being said if you haven’t met the Gallo’s before now I believe you will still love Flame so what are you waiting for get your one click finger one clicking.
