Holy hotness! Wow. This little novella is definitely the hottest book of the series so far!
Suzy and City are finally tying the knot and this novella shows Izzy’s point of view on what goes down.
You see mostly everything in Throttled, Suzy and City’s novella but what you don’t see, is the delicious man who Izzy spends the night with the night of her big brother’s wedding.
Izzy is head strong. Like beyond head strong. So she needs a man who can match her and bring her down a peg or two. In walks James and he’s the perfect man for her. Alpha, rough, cocky, knows what he wants and that’s her. She’s not expecting him to be the way he is and it scares her. But she shoves those feelings aside and has a night of fun.
I didn’t realize that this novella should be read before Resist Me, so don’t make my mistake. Read this one first to get all the details of James and Izzy’s first night together!
This novella was so much fun and HOT! Holy City. What a hero!
This story is short but it’s jam packed with so much goodness, I absolutely loved it!
City and Suzy are in the middle of wedding planning and when their wedding fast approaches, they have their bachelor/bachelorette parties. City and the boys end up at the same bar that Suzy and the girls are at and unfortunately, City sees some guy all over his girl.
Drama happens and their relationship is tested. I guess you’ll have to read to find out what happens and how it all works out.
I loved the Christmas part of this book too. It got me a little emotional as well. Which doesn’t happen often when I read, so kudos to you, Chelle!
Oh well this series only gets better and better. I know I know. I’m super late to the game and should have read these books forever ago. Chelle’s going to be writing the grandchildren’s stories by the time I’m done.
Michael is a MMA fighter and a bad boy. Never thinking he’d settle down. You know the type.
Mia is a doctor and she definitely never thought she’d settle down. With her job taking most of her time, she doesn’t have any time for dating, that’s for sure.
Michael ends up in her ER after getting hurt and there was an instant connection. After bumping into each other again, sparks fly and they end up going on a date.
They have some fun because of course, Mia feels she isn’t ready for a relationship but Michael is a persistent one. He wants her happy and does something sweet for her that I had a smile on my face the whole time when he revealed the surprise to her.
I loved reading about the side characters again and reading about the Gallo family dynamic. The characters are strong and I want to be best friends with the girls.
So I’ve known Chelle for a while but haven’t had a chance to read her Men of Inked books yet. I’ve read others by her and am finally going through the rest. I do have to say right off the bat that I’m glad I read Kayden and Sophia’s books before reading this one. Not that you have to read them first but it’s mentioned a few times throughout this book that Sophia and Kayden had it hard in the beginning, which they did. So I liked that I knew their history.
Suzy’s car breaks down in the middle of nowhere and who comes to rescue her? City of course. Right away, there’s some chemistry between them. After a few drinks, the sparks fly even more!
City is a tattoo artist and is not Suzy’s type at all. She’s a good girl and had a list in her head on who her future husband should be. She wasn’t expecting to fall for anyone even remotely close to resembling City. Tattoos, piercings and a whole lot of Alpha!
I really enjoyed this story and can’t wait to read the rest of the books! I have so much to catch up on but am looking forward to the journey!
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.

Review by Twinsie Dee

ALFA Private Investigations is a spin-off of the Men of Inked series, but can be read separately.
**Includes a BONUS novella – Men of Inked Christmas**
There’s only one thing worse than dating a friend’s sister sleeping with his mother.
Fran DeLuca’s known for her bossy, overbearing personality almost as much as for her love of nylon tracksuits. But when someone runs off with fifty thousand dollars, she becomes involved in an ALFA investigation and catches the eye of silver fox biker, Bear.
Bear North, ALFA’s resident bad boy, has never thought of Fran as anything more than his buddy’s mom. When she trades in her elastic pants and orthopedic tennis shoes for a pair of skintight jeans and high heels, he takes notice of the fifty-something MILF.
When the money trail leads closer to Fran than expected, Bear takes charge of the investigation and will do anything to protect her. Can Bear track a thief, claim Fran, and keep Morgan DeLuca in the dark long enough to solve the case?
Wicked Impulse is book 3 in the ALFA PI series and includes a BONUS novella – Men of Inked Christmas.
So, this has become my favorite Chelle Bliss book for so many reasons. It’s suspenseful, it’s hilarious, and it’s hot as hell! I was sucked back into the Alfa PI world almost immediately and I didn’t come up for air till I uttered the words “the end.” This is a story with more mature main characters so it was easy for me to relate to them.
Bear has always had my heart. My visual is a combination between Sam Elliot and Grizzly Adams. I know weird, but for me uber hot! He’s been around the block and isn’t afraid to let it show. He’s pissed off more woman than you can count and he’s not sorry. When he sees Fran as more than just his friends mom, oh boy… the shit’s gonna hit the fan for sure!
Fran cracks me right the hell up. She’s a 50 something MILF but doesn’t know it just yet. Leave it to Maria to take her shopping and ditch the Blair wardrobe for good. Her heart is pure, but her bod is made for sin. She’s been “the mom” for too long. Something has got to give. It’s refreshing and comical to see her finally let loose.
The supporting character cast is pretty big. Imagine all the hotties in one place at one time.. well you can do that multiple times in this story. You get your fill at the office and at the Neon Cowboy! Maria is by far my favorite supporting character! Who knew she could swear like a champ!
I wouldn’t say that this story is dark or tragic. It actually leans more towards a suspenseful romantic comedy if that’s even a thing! The story line itself is exciting and thrilling, but still manages to crack you up when you least expect it. The characters are dominant and down-to-earth and they keep you captivated though out the tale. The dialogue flows nicely and tension leading up to the climax was perfect. I fell in love with Bear and Fran’s story instantly.
A brand new romantic standalone you won’t want to miss!
Politics have never been so dirty…
From authors Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert comes a smoldering standalone enemies to lovers romance that will, ahem…check all your boxes.
I hate him. Jude Titan is everything that’s wrong with the male sex: cocky, domineering and loaded with swagger. Oh, and did I mention he’s a Republican? Yeah, the guy’s so conservative he leans to the right when walking. And lucky me, I’m running against him for Senate. But I’ve got plenty of fight in me. A golden boy war hero opponent with a smile that leaves melted panties in its wake? Bring. It. On.
Damn, she’s sexy. Reagan Preston intrigues me from the moment I lay eyes on her. And speaking of laying…I want between those thighs. But I want to make her burn for me first. Every debate and stolen moment is foreplay for us. She claims she hates me, but her body tells a different story. I plan to win this election, but I also want to win the sharp, fiery Democrat who captures my attention like no woman ever has. Politics is filthy, just like all the things I want to do to Reagan Preston.
This book has touched me in so many ways. It has so much raw emotion and anguish. My head is reeling, my heart is pounding and I can’t help but feel connected to these beautiful souls. Dirty Work is full of wit, sex appeal, and some serious issues. I loved it and can’t wait to shout it from the rooftops!!!
Jude Titan is my hero in every way. He’s an honorable soldier, a good friend, and the finest male character I’ve read in quite some time. His run for the Senate is anything but dull. He seems to make everything jive and when things seem to get tough, he’s the voice of reason. The calm one letting life’s bad juju roll off his back. I loved him from the very beginning!
Reagan Preston is anything but weak. She’s fighting for a position that she’s not even sure she wants. She takes the good with the bad, but you can tell she still just a woman with feelings and when her circumstances takes a turn for the worse, she takes it in stride and becomes one of my favorite female characters.
The supporting characters cast isn’t too large. It’s just enough to keep the story interesting. Reagan’s campaign manager Lexi is freakin’ hilarious. She made me giggle more times than I can count. Now the other campaign manager, Carl… well… I don’t like him. In fact he rubbed me the wrong way right from the beginning and I just couldn’t get past his jerkface attitude. There are more to this supporting cast, but I’m not ready to talk about them just yet. I’ll let you form your own opinion of them.
So, this book basically grabbed my by the neck and kept me enthralled from cover to cover. The storyline hit home for me as I’m a Republican and my hubs is the diehard Union Democrat. We always differ on stuff, but that’s life. We will continue to cancel each others vote out until I find a way to vote twice!! LOL! I’ve also worked for the DVA and Veterans hold a special place in my heart. I was glad to see so much focus on them.
The characters are powerful, the plot compelling, and the pacing fast and just what the doctor ordered. The tension is constant and the climax superb. Great book chickies!

STANDALONE NOVELLA – Part of the Club series which contain interconnected standalone novellas.
Ret North knows exactly who he is—a Dominant male with an insatiable sexual appetite. He’s always been a top, searching for his bottom…until a notorious switch catches his eye.
Alese Kane has grown tired of her usual partners. She’s been watching Ret for months, wanting to run her tongue along his hard muscles. But his need for total control stops her.
Ret worries that a relationship with Alese would be impossible, but his giant ego and even larger cock tell him otherwise. Unable to deny his attraction to her any longer, Ret convinces Alese to submit to him.
When Ret dominates Alese, will she submit or will she top from the bottom?
Holy freakin’ hell… this petite novella is a little damn firecracker! It’s packs quite a punch for such a short story. I read this in one sitting (maybe 2 hours) and it had me laughing, cringing, and fanning myself and girly bits. Pick it up today and don’t wait to read it. Read it NOW!
Ret is 6’4″ for godsakes. Need I say more? He’s a Dom with a dilemma. He’s not pleased with his current situation and the prospects seem bleak. As luck would have it, Alese seems to be in a similar situation. Hmmmm… what could happen?
Alese is not sure where she fits into this BDSM lifestyle. Should she train to be a Domme or should she explore her options in being a Submissive? After a bad situation gets worse, I think she’s ready to throw in the towel. That is until Ret steps in!
These two have great chemistry and Chelle brings that out on these pages. The storyline is brief, but to the point. The dialogue flows and feels natural. The pacing is quick and direct. I loved this novella and I love Ret. I don’t care what Cat Mason says, that boy is MINE!
