Publisher's Summary

Could you love a man surrounded by danger?

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. But when she shows up the first day, she never expects to run into someone tall, dark, and totally sexy from her not-so-innocent past. 

Pike Moore is a bossy biker with a cocky attitude and an even bigger ego. He came to Inked to start over. New town. New job. New roots. None of that included coming face-to-face with the hot chick who spent a week in his bed before she vanished without a trace. 

But when Pike’s dark family history catches up with him, can he stop Gigi from being caught in the crossfire? 

Flame is book one in the Men of Inked: Heatwave series by USA Today best-selling author Chelle Bliss. The Men of Inked: Heatwave series features steamy romance, hot heroes, and strong women.

Cliffhanger!!

I’m so so so tired of duets that are not clearly indicated as such! Authors please stop!! It seems this is done to just try to sell more books - that’s fine but warn a reader/listener! It’s going to be 3 months before the next book is released...love Jason Clarke and he’s always a one click for me, but I just can’t stand getting to the end of a book in a cliffhanger - just uuggg....so frustrated!!

Loved


WOW, Chelle Bliss done it again. Not only have I read the ebook but I have listened to the audio as well. I think both narrators did an amazing job. But let me say that Jason Clarke’s voice has this deep dark sexy husky tone that makes your insides quiver. Oh my lands it can make you melt in your seat. Fanning myself here.

I have always loved Gigi in the previous books. She like all Gallo women had this sassy attitude that I just love. She is a young woman now with a bright future a head of her. Does not help that her mother and father still see this little girl though.

Pike was the sexy tat guy that road a bike and had seen a lot of things. A bet the did not think that the girl he took back to his room with him would turn his world upside down. He could not help but fall in love with her spit fire attitude and he could not get her out of his head.

I almost laughed the way Gigi and Pike met up again. Both were surprised and to top if off he would learn how protective her family really was.

This will go south pretty quick and Pike and Gigi will find danger at their door. Pike will really get to see what a family is all about.

Love the chemistry that was between these two. Things will get hot and heavy and I love how much Gigi keeps Pike on his toes.

My heart truly broke for Pike. When the story of his past started unfolding I heart broke more and more for him. He truly had a sad childhood. Thank god for his grandmother.

This was a great story though the ending did have me screaming at the author the words “REALLY!”. I am thinking she needs to get busy writing the next book..LOL

Hand me a fan stat!!!

I've been waiting for Gigi's story since she was born and Ms. Bliss has definitely delivered in giving us a story that has all the Gallo sassiness and a hotter than hot burning flame between Gigi and Spike!!

Samantha and Jason are the perfect narrators for this story. Their voices are just right when it comes to their interactions and getting into the heads of our H/h. This story has everything I was hoping for and so much more...and oh my goodness that ending!!!

I'm so excited we're getting all the kids stories and I can't wait to see what happens next...

The Gallo's are at it again

You can never get enough of the Gallo's and their children are just as feisty. Gigi and Pike meet in a way that most young people do and let's just say parents are not going to be happy once they find out the truth behind it all.

Gigi wants to stay in the family business. She has trained at becoming a tattoo artist and now it's time to shine but Pike, her one week stand stops her. He could be the reason things do not go the way she wants it but there is more drama ahead for these two. Family issues on both sides make things harder for them. Will they overcome a huge obstacle?

Lost Me!

This book lost me after the setup to Gigi and Pike relationship. Their initial meet up grabbed me. After she left and they reconnect in the shop, the story turned bad. I didn't understand their tension. I didn't understand her animosity towards him, then the surprise when he reciprocated. Her misplaced anger, when she's the one who seduced him was frustrating. I couldn't finish. The plot devices started too early and the foreshadowing was too much.

Chance meeting that lasts

Great story with lots of heat and danger lurking. Gigi Gallo grew up with bad boys inking the badder boys and strong women that keep them in line. She has lived the life with her family owning Inked, a famous tattoo shop in Florida and having bad boy bikers in and out of the shop her whole life. When her and her friends decide to go to Miami for spring break she isn't too freaked out that it is also bike week there. When Gigi decides to have a little fun the man that has her attention is definitely a bad boy biker. Pike Moore is inked and looks the part, but Pike has another side to him besides his past. When he sees Gigi he thinks she will be a good time for the night. Little did he know she would wrap herself around his heart and their lives would never be the same.

Loved this book, it is full of sass and heat and family that love each other to the point of laying their lives on the line. It does end in a cliffhanger so be aware of that.

Samantha Brentmoor and Jason Clarke were terrific narrating this book. Timing was great for both and I was totally wrapped up in listening to them.

I can't wait to listen to the next book in this series to see what happens next. I loved it and highly recommend it.

Fabulous <3

What a great listen! The author does a great job of bringing us a story that has all the heat you want in a romance paired with an intruiging back story as we learn more about Pike and his past. The ending certainly that leaves us wanting to know what happens next to Gigi and Pike as well as the rest of the Gallo family. Loved Gigi and Pike!!! They had excellent chemistry and were such well written and lovable characters!

The narration is absolutely perfect for these characters. These narrators were a great fit for each other as well as their respective characters and the gave an excellent performance that turned up the intensity of this story, in its entirety.

Good Book

I really enjoyed this story about Pike and Gigi. I loved the dynamics in the Gallo family. I don't think I can convey how much I loved this story. The words I write just won't do it justice. You need to see for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

I loved it

What an enjoyable story. Flame by Chelle Bliss was steamy, drama filled page-turner that had me hooked from beginning to end. With some twists I wasn't expecting, this story had me glued to my seat and I enjoyed every moment of it..
Pike and Gigi were strong well-developed characters and the chemistry between them was intense. The inclusion of the rest of the Gallo family and the MC brought another level to the story and the banter between them all had me so amused. I loved this story. It was a fantastic read and I would highly recommend it to all lovers of contemporary romance.
The audiobook was narrated by Jason Clarke and Samantha Brentmoor. These two did a fantastic job and brought the story to life. Their voices complemented each other and their pace and timing was excellent. I enjoyed listening to them narrate this novel.

Great Listen

Well what an enjoyable listen that was and the narrators were fabulous. This book was fast paced and action packed. I have to say too that as much as it was hot and had me hooked, what I really loved was how humorous this story was. The banter between Pike and Gigi and Gigi and City just had me smiling big. While the romance was a little insta love for my taste, there is no denying that Pike and Gigi and smoking chemistry and I cannot wait for more to come.

Flaming hot

The Gallo’s are back
You think City and Suzy’s stories were off the hook, well you haven't read or listen to Gigi and Pike's story, Gigi so much like her Joe (City) and Suzy with a little be of her Auntie Izzy throwing in. So Gigi & Tamara and some friends are in Daytona for spring break, Pike is in Daytona for bike week. The moment they start to talk to each other Pike and Gigi have the spark of sizzling chemistry. Fast forward 1 half year later were they meet at Inked were its both there first that to work there. This story full of twists and turns, drama, suspense. Loved the Audio and reading it Chelle, Samantha Brentmoor, Jason Clarke brought Gigi and Pike to life

Warning cliffhanger

She does it again

I’ve always loved Chelle Bliss’s books but this one, this one has just blown me away. I loved that Gigi is just as independent and headstrong as the Gallo family. Pike is the only guy that could handle Gigi’s personality and family.

That being said the ending has nearly killed me can’t wait for the next one.

The narration was absolutely perfect and brought the book to life in such a way that I felt I was right there with them.

If you are looking for a book full of heat, laughter, drama and family. One that will keep you awake for hours and loving every second then this is the book for you.
