Publisher's Summary

Tattooed Protector. Hollywood Princess.

Nick Gallo lives wild and free, avoiding any complications or drama. But when he overhears a conversation at a late-night taco stand, he can’t help but insert his two cents, telling the woman she was too good for that kind of hassle.

Josephine Carmichael lives in the crosshairs of the paparazzi as the child of a Hollywood power-couple. But when her celebrity boyfriend has an affair while they’re on vacation, she takes off to the middle-of-nowhere Florida, ending up crying in her nachos.

And when Nick finds Josephine sleeping in the parking lot of a local store, his protective instincts take over. What starts out as a simple favor takes them down a road they never imagined.

Perfect addition to the series

Lance Greenwood and Samantha Brentmoor did a wonderful job bringing one of my families to life and the narration was perfect.

I’m the first to admit that the Gallo Family is a family I adore and a family I would love to be part of but Ms Bliss has taken us to a whole different level with Nick Gallo’s story, this book is up there with the best in this wonderful series. I fell hook, line and sinker for this caring, protective, passionate man and I adored Josephine Carmichael. Jo is from Hollywood royalty but she has missed out on so much, her family don’t care or love, she has never even experienced a Christmas and my heart broke for her but you can’t get much better than the Gallo’s as a family and as we all know once they fall they fall hard and fast and one you are invited to be part of the clan there is no turning back ..... Spark touched me on so many levels, I cried, I swooned, I sighed and I laughed as I joined Nick and Jo’s journey and if you are looking for a book that is about love and family this is the book for you. I often struggle with second generations when I love the first generation so much but Ms Bliss is giving us a second generation as good as the first and I’m loving meeting them all. Looking forward to the next book in this amazing series. Highly recommend this to romance listeners.

Gallo's are always family

I have an infinite love for the Gallos and Spark was no exception. I enjoy the the fact the the family continues to grow and "age." The kids get to be adults and have their families. If you haven't been introduced to the family, you won't feel lost listening to Spark. If you know the Gallos, it will be like a loud, mouthy, chaotic, warm homecoming hug.

It was great to know that Nick wasn't going to get involved helping Jo out and then it was too late. Jo was wonderful if not slightly tragic that she had never had any family or friends show her the world outside her bubble before. Nick was bound to show her new things and she blossomed with his family.

Samantha Brentmoor and Lance Greenfield are perfectly paired to bring together Jo and Nick. Their voices blended well with feel of the characters.

I can't wait for more Gallo family.

Let the Fire Begin

Awesome just like the rest of the series! Chelle, she just knows who to write her men and women, in a way that will pull you in from the very beginning and make you want to finish in one setting! Spark was definitely within that same realm! Nick and Jo are captivating. She is vulnerable out in the real world and he just wants to protect her. Their story is suspenseful, sweet, and sexy. The witty banter between the Gallo family and anyone lucky enough to capture their heart is amazing.

These Gallo's though! Love them!!

What is it about a Gallo man? Just like all Heatwave (Gallo) men, Nick is seriously swoonable! He’s got this tough guy personality going on but just like candy with a hard shell that inside is all soft and gooey and he definitely melts in Josephine’s mouth (YOWZAS!!!). I totally mean that as kinky as it sounds because these two are hot, hot, HOT!! The family dynamics always pull me in every single time. I love how they are always there for each other and support everyone that’s linked to their family. I just love that openness they have to the ones their blood relatives love. Jo doesn’t come into this family with that type of support behind her. I really loved how she was immersed into the Gallo family.

The narrators Samantha Brentmoor and Lance Greenfield are so good together. They both bring so much to the story. Chelle Bliss’s audiobooks always feel like I’m watching a good show. I might just get the story read to me but depending on the narrators, and these two are fantastic, I can visualize the story in my mind. It’s all brought to life by their voices, by their emotions. Miss Brentmoor has a sexy and soothing voice. She’s fun and charismatic. Lance Greenfield seemed to bring Nick to life. He also sounds sexy and completely charming. This duo is so balanced and so pleasing to the ears. I’m looking forward to the next installment for the Gallo family!

Enjoyed it

I love the Gallo Family and I'm always excited when a new book releases. Spark is the 6th book in the series and this is Jo and Nick's story. Their story was filled with drama, suspense, humor, heartfelt and emotional moments, excellent chemistry and some hot romance. Of course the addition of the Gallo family greatly added to the story as there is never a dull moment when they are around as the witty dialogue and banter is always highly entertaining. This was another great addition to this series and I enjoyed it. The story was narrated by Samantha Brentmoor and Lance Greenfield. They both did a great job with the characters, giving them their own voice and they brought the story to life. It was a pleasure listening to them narrate this story.

They just keep getting better

Nick finds Jo crying in her nachos after breaking up with her boyfriend and offers to help her for a few days. The connection and chemistry between them is great, the story is fun & sexy with just enough action. The story is loaded with Gallo family love and I just can't get enough.

Lance Greenfield & Samantha Brentmoor are a great duo of narrators and fit the personality of the characters so perfectly.

Fantastic

I’ve always loved Chelle Bliss’s books they are full of amazing heat, chemistry and family but these characteristics can be found in so many books what makes these so unique? Chelle Bliss weaves through a good dose of suspense and snark and unbreakable family bonds. This book did not disappoint. Between the insanely hot scenes and the caring quality of the characters this was a book I did not want to put down. Every time I listen to a Chelle bliss book I want to re listen to all the books for that family connection.

A 5 star listen and I just wish I could give it more.

I couldn't stop listening! So good!

I can't help but get swept up in The Gallo Family. I hadn't listened to an audiobook with Lance Greenfield in so long and oh, how I missed his voice. He embodied every delicious inch of Nick Gallo, making my skin heat and my body ache. I always love Samantha Brentmoor, her sultry, with just the right amount of sass and strength, voice gave life to Jo and I couldn't get enough. I got lost in their voices and Chelle's words.

Nick Gallo was a bit of a bad boy growing up. He got into a little bit of trouble but his family always had his back and let him pursue what made him happy. In business with his cousin and her partner, he's doing what he loves. And then one night he meets Jo and everything changes for him. He can't help but rescue the "damsel in distress".

Jo is celebrity royalty. She's grown up with a family who couldn't care less what is happening in her life, as long as it's not reflecting on their image. After her former boyfriend does her wrong, she runs as far as she can to get away from everyone. She didn't expect to run into a drop dead gorgeous, brooding man with a heart of gold. She's starting to realize just what she's been truly missing her entire life.

Fantastic listen! Swoony perfection and all the delectable steaminess that I can't help but want more off. I just can't get this smile off my face, I am beyond excited for the next book in this series.

Ooh this has been my favourite listen from the next generation of Gallo’s. This story was super fun and a nice easy to listen. Nick and Josephine have fantastic chemistry and are super hot. The interactions between the family never fail to make me smile and chuckle. Another fab listen!

Sparks will fly

Another amazing read by Chelle Bliss in the Men of Inked - Heatwave series, in this story we see Nick Gallo and Hollywood royalty princess Josephine Carmichael. All Nick wants is to eat his Tacos in peace and go home for the night when he meets Jo crying over her nachos and telling her cheating boyfriend to get out of her life. Nick was brought up to always look out for women so when he finds Jo sleeping in her car he offers her his couch to sleep on but he ends up getting more than he expected.

I loved the story between these two, the push and pull, it was sexy at times but it also had the love story to it. Jo slowly got under Nicks skin and vice versa. We also get a wider picture of where all the cousins are at in life and how like their parents they also pull together and are there for one another. The epilogue had a real twist and I cannot wait for the next installment of Ember, Rocco’s story.

The Narration by Samantha Brentmoor was outstanding again and normally Lance Greenfield is not my favourite however he surprised me and did a great job interpreting Nick.
