Men of Inked Series 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?
“Do you swear?” I asked as she set the glass back on the bar.
“What?” She gaped at me.
“Do you swear? Simple question. You’ve said ‘heck’ and ‘friggin’’ so far, but nothing dirty.”
“Oh, um, yeah, I swear.” Her cheeks turned pink and a small smile spread across her face. “I’m just used to watching my words with the kids around all day.”
“Prove it,” I said as I stared in her blue sapphire eyes.
“Cause I need to know if it’s in you. Are you all good girl or is there more under there dying to come out?” I hid the smile and laughter that was so close to breaking free from my lips. The pink of her cheeks spread across her face. I know I embarrassed her, but fuck, I needed to know if I stood a chance.
“Yes, I swear. What do you think I am? I’m not a child, City.” She glared at me as she raised the drink to her lips and wrapped them around the rim. Fuck I wanted those lips wrapped around my shaft, taking me deep and sucking me off.
“Never said you were, babe. Do you drink besides tonight?” I asked, now smiling because I knew she was upset. I liked the fire I saw in her eyes when I pointed out her good girl qualities – she obviously didn’t like being labeled.
“Sometimes. I’m just responsible. I don’t drink and drive. My dad used to be a cop and it was drilled into my head at an early age.” The words she spoke hit me like a ton of bricks. Drunk driving was the one thing in the world that caused my blood to boil.
Good girl teacher with a cop father? Just my luck. “Nothin’ wrong with that. Virgin daiquiris aren’t always your thing, then?”
“Why? Do I have to be a drinker? I mean does it make me less of an adult?”
“No, Suzy. Just trying to get a feel for who you are – what you are.”
So I think it's a common theme with this book that Chelle Bliss gets 10/10 for the cover - it's HAWT, schmoking hawt!!!
Throttle Me was an easy read, likeable main characters, middle of the road storyline, great side characters and at times it sizzled with the sexy going on but it just lacked oomph for me, it didn't drag me in and beat me about the head like I wanted it too, I was expecting something more gritty and challenging.
The story starts at breakneck speed, I would've liked a bit more anticipation, Suzy is Little Miss straight laced and within hours of her car breaking down she's rescued & seduced by a tattooed biker and her life is never the same again!
City underneath all that Alpha is just a sweetheart - a dirty one at that but who doesn't love a bad boy?
Chelle Bliss has left us wanting more of this crazy ass crew and I can't wait for with Book #2
