Publisher's Summary

Suzy is 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?

Contains mature themes.

    "Story was lacking, narration was horrible"

    I'll start my critic with the narration. The male narrator kept jumping from a horrible Chicago accent to a horrible cross between an Italian and Spanish accent. The female narrator was way too breathy.
    The story itself was basically nine or ten sex scenes with an extremely weak plot and dialogue in between. There were so many inconsistencies in the story line that it was almost laughable. These errors should have been caught before the recording. I'm definitely returning this one and would not recommend it to anyone.

    Story
    "This one did not wow me in any way!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I have mixed feeling about recommending this book to anyone. I didn't think this story was well thought out. There were parts of the story that were disconnected and did not go with the characters development. I found Suzy to be whinny and to insecure and I didn’t feel that she grew out of that by the end of the book. I also never came to care for her character and ended up losing a bit of respect for her in the end.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I liked the family aspect and City was a great alpha male character, but I couldn't get into his relationship with Suzy.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I didn't like the female reader in this one. Her voice made Suzy's already lackluster dialog worse because it seemed forced. There was also a huge difference in the way the readers interpreted the accents of the main characters. It was hard to get into.


    Was Throttle Me worth the listening time?

    Yes I would say it was worth listening to but it is not something I would listen to more than once. I tend to like to listen to books in my library over and over and this will not be one in my rotation.


    Any additional comments?

    I am aware this is part of a series and I hope the others are better or that they at least have a better listening experience.

    The story I loved it


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Throttle Me?

    When City saves Susy from the jerk in the parking lot that she made the mistake of going out with as she thought City wasn't the right kind of guy to date

    "Bad boy and good girl"

    I enjoyed this story but as I always say It takes away from the listening when the female reads the male voice with a not so male voice and then the males reads and you get a different picture of what the male should look and act like. worth a credit

    "Enjoyable audiobook."

    This was a good story. I enjoyed listening to this especially while doing mundane housework. The female narrator's voice was a bit hard to envision as Suzie's voice but the male narrator was spot on as City's. I'm eager to read/listen to the other installments in this series.

    Story
    "Sheer Decadence"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Throttle Me to be better than the print version?

    I can't say it is better than the print because I have my own inner voice that is absolutely fantastic at playing out scenes, but the audio gave it something I couldn't have. I could sit back and imagine the exact scenes as the book was being read to me. It was a lot hot and a bit naughty! It added to a book I already loved and characters I already adored.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There are so many things I loved about this story. City is my all time favorite character in this series. I almost forgot that after reading the last book but rereading Throttle Me reminded me how much I truly loved his book. He is alpha to the max and he takes care of the women in his life even as he respects them and cherishes them. He is tough and strong but knows when to back away. I love how he respects his mom and how he takes care of Susie.


    Have you listened to any of Nelson Hobbs and Lucy Malone ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have never listened to either of them before. I have to admit I loved their voices. Nelson Hobbs could pull off the tough voice and I loved it. Lucy Malone had the soft Susie voice I imagined.


    Any additional comments?

    Listening to Throttle Me was a decadent treat. Hearing my favorite story being told rather than me playing it out in my head was unreal. Men of Inked readers need to experience it. I could listen to it over and over. Chelle Bliss has an amazing talent and when the book is just as enthralling the second, third and fourth time I've read it it will always be a favorite.

    Story
    "Don't Bother"
    What disappointed you about Throttle Me?

    I've never heard so much juvenile angst from adults. I could only think, "Go ahead and ask her to the prom already!" Mind you, these are adults pushing 30 and well past the prom years. This was quite honestly a "did not finish" book, and I almost never fail to finish something I've paid for.


    What was most disappointing about Chelle Bliss’s story?

    Lack of maturity and an insipid heroine.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Nelson Hobbs and Lucy Malone ?

    Narrators are fine.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Throttle Me?

    I would never have produced the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Wish I could get my money/credit back on this one.

    "Hot"

    First book in the Men of Inked series. Hot alpha male City comes to the rescue of uptight goody too shoes Suzy. Things get hot and heavy pretty quickly. If would seem that City, hot tattooed biker, who normally doesn't see a girl twice, is all in with Suzy. Suzy on the other hand is looking to settle down with a suited businessman. No bad boy for her. Their sexual chemistry cannot be denied. Can they work on a relationship? Enjoyable read, Definitely looking into the next book in the series.
