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.

Spark is the sixth interconnect standalone book in the new steamy romance Men of Inked: Heatwave series by Wall Street Journal and USA Today best-selling author Chelle Bliss.

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.

Fireeeeeeeee

I loved Samantha Brentmoor and Lance Greenfield as Nick and Jo...they made the story that much more enjoyable. They brought the characters to a whole new level...they always bring the heat when they narrate, but this was FIRE!!!! I love how loving and caring Nick is towards Jo, even though he doesn't know. He gives her kindness when she needs it the most. Jo is def way out of her comfort zone an is need of some kindness. These two for sure have a spark that is waiting to burn bright. I love this family and their stories. Keep em' coming!!!

My Favorite in the Series!

This is the sixth book in the Men of Inked Heatwave Series, a next generation from the Men of Inked Series. You need to listen to this Series in order. Wow! I loved it! Nick and Josephine's story is sweet, and beautiful. Nick is such a great man, caring and protective. Jo is lovely, and smart. They are opposites attract, and they share an undeniable chemistry. They are perfect together. The supporting characters are great. This Series with characters intertwined, and I loved to see again the characters from the previous books. This is my favorite story in the Series! Samantha Brentmoor and Lance Greenfield did an excellent job with the narration. I enjoyed it! Looking forward to listen to Ember, the next book in the Series.

Hollywood meets Florida and it’s 🔥🔥🔥

Another swoon worthy Gallo man! Nick is chivalrous to a fault. Nick loves tacos. Nick was raised right. When Nick goes on a late night taco run trying to mind his own business, he can’t help but be a gentleman for the damsel in distress crying at one of the tables. He doesn’t know who she really is or how fast he’s gonna fall. Two totally different worlds collide and that collision sparks more than a small flame. A deliciously, hot flame you don’t want to miss!!

Hot Sparks

Samantha Brentmoor and Lance Greenfield were wonderful bringing these characters together. It was bliss in my ears listening to another wonderful story from Chelle Bliss. I loved the emotion and energy they put into tgis story making it that much enjoyable. I love the Gallos and love the words Chelle weaves into these stories. The emotion and love and family bonds are what keep bringing me back. Jo definitely needs a family and what better one than the Gallis to love her. I absolutely loved the banter between Nick and Jo. From the moment Jo opened her mouth I knew she would fit in perfect with the Gallos and bring Nick to his knees. The chemistry, sexiness and swoon are what make my romance heart flutter. Add the little bit of suspense and I'm in heaven. I can not wait to read about the twins after that bomb Chelle dropped.

Outstanding story and narration

I freely admit that the Gallo family are one of my most favourite families EVER. I haven't met a Gallo that I haven’t loved and Nick Gallo is no different. I fell hard and fast for this swoon worthy, caring, protective and passionate man and knew that the woman who earned his love would need to be an exceptional woman and that is what Josephine(Jo) Carmichael is. Spark is book six in the Men of Inked: Heatwave series and it was a great addition to what has quickly become one of my favourite series. When Nick steps in to help Jo out, neither of them realize that it is the start of a journey that will last forever. Narrated by Lance Greenfield and Samantha Brentmoor, they did a fabulous job bringing Nick and Jo to life and I felt that they nailed the characters. This was a fast paced, hot, passionate, steamy story which will keep you on the edge of your seat; I was riveted from the first to the last chapter. There was humour, drama, angst and so much chemistry between Nick and Jo that you could almost feel the air spark between them. There were times that my heart almost broke for Jo, she may be from Hollywood royalty but she has missed out on so much love and family. As expected the Gallo’s welcome her with open arms and hearts; this book is all about love and family and what one will do for the person who holds their heart. I love this generation of the Gallo’s almost as much as the originals.

Good Listen

Nick has been taught to help women in need and Jo needs him. He gives her somewhere safe to stay and gets so much in return. Jo is use to being in the spotlight and thought she was successfully hiding until she is found and then she runs. She must learn that the family she is now around is not the one she was raised with.

Love those Gallos!

There is nothing I love more than getting lost in the Gallo family stories! Each one is original and romantic, and lets us spend some time with the entire family. This is Nick's story, the son of Angel and Thomas. At a late night taco stand, he bumps into Jo, a very upset, beautiful woman. He catches bits and pieces of her plight and when he sees her again, gives her a place to stay. He has no idea what he is getting into. Jo is the daughter of Hollywood actors and as a result is famous as well. But that doesn't matter to Nick. There is something about Jo that brings out that Gallo protectiveness and he is going to do what it takes to keep her safe. And our story begins. But will she want to be with an ordinary guy like Nick? I love Nick! He is the kind of guy that what you see is what you get. He pulls no punches, says what he means and loves with his whole heart. For all the craziness Jo comes from, she proves to have a level head, is the kind of woman that is independent, and can handle a Gallo man. Bliss once again captivates me, and brings me home in a family that I love. Lance Greenfield and Samantha Brentmoor tell their story and it's amazing. Each finds the perfect voices for these characters and lets us take their journey. Greenfield always brings out the best in the alpha male, and his voice for Nick is perfect. Strong, protective and loving, he brings Nick to life. Brentmoor molds Jo into the independent woman she wants to be. She creates a character that we can feel grow, and change as she realizes what she really wants. These two are fantastic together and enhanced this great story.

Another great addition to the HEATWAVE series!

Nick and Jo had exactly what the title of this book suggests - a spark. Once ignited the heat between them was both sweet and incredibly steamy. As always the interactions of the Gallo family only added to the story. The ending was both sweet and loving as well as scary leaving us the reader wanting to know more.

Outstanding Story & Listen🎧 A Captivating Delight!

Wow, Chelle Bliss pens another awesome novel and as soon as I started it I knew it was going to be one of my favorites. Her Gallo Family world is such a great place to get lost in, I love the family dynamics and camaraderie amongst all the family members and how tight knit they are. Nick Gallo is Thomas and Angel’s son and this is his story. He is a typical Gallo man, a bit of a hot headed alpha but he was taught to be respectful and protective especially when it comes to women. So when he sees a girl in need he offers his help. Josephine Carmichael is vacationing in Florida is upset after catching her boyfriend in a compromising position. She flees and stops at late night Taco stand grabs some food and tries to figure out her next move all while crying her eyes out. Nick stops in for a late bite and catches wind of what is going on with her after a few word she heads out. He sees her again and despite not knowing who she is she invites her to stay with him for the night. There is just something about her that has him wanting to help her. Turns out she is not a simple tourist but the daughter of two well known celebrities and sort of one herself. I really liked Jo, she was not just a spoiled rich girl with a sense of entitlement, she actually saw how much her life lacked in comparison to Nick’s, she could have been jealous of what he had but instead she was appreciative of it. I loved how everything played out in this book, the story is beautifully plotted with plenty of drama, humor, heartfelt and emotional moments and some hot romance. And because there is never a dull moment in the Gallo family there are some thrilling and suspenseful moments too. This is the type of book that puts a smile on your face and keeps it there the entire time. Chelle Bliss thank you for this amazing story, I loved every minute of it. 🎧📚🎧And for the fabulous narration, Samantha Brentmoor and Lance Greenfield did an awesome job portraying the characters, humanizing them and giving each their own voice. They grasped each character’s persona, taking the role and made it their own. Samantha Brentmoor played Jo’s role with perfection and Lance Greenfield did the same for Nick. The secondary characters were all well done too. They set the perfect tone for the story and handled the humor, the witty dialogue and banter with ease. Both are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another awesome listen.

I love Nick and Jo!

I love this series. I never want the books to end, just keep telling me everything lol. Spark is about Nick, Thomas and Angel’s son. He meets Jo, a famous person, that needs help and he ends up learning about the struggles of “Hollywood life”. Nick has turned into a fine young man. I love how much Jo is able to appreciate the Gallo family and the relationship she has with Nick. The narration was great. I definitely recommend this book/series. 🎧Audiobook Obsession 💜 Sisters Spotlight
