~ Synopsis ~

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?

This is the first book in the Men of Inked Series. 
~ Excerpt ~
“What’s for dessert?” I asked as he closed the door. 
“Anything you want, sugar.” 
“You know what I want,” I said with a smile that was anything but innocent. 
“Are you up to it?” he asked with a look of concern. 
“Question is, big boy, are you up to it?” 
He laughed. “Don’t ask questions if you can’t handle the hearing the answer. 
Eat your food and I’ll show you how up to it I am, sugar.” He placed a giant piece of 
lasagna with cheese oozing out in front of me. My stomach growled at the smell and 
the feeling of hunger finally hit me. 
I wanted him and I figured that if I challenged his manhood, he’d finally cave. 
All men are the same in that regard. I cut into the slice and watched all the insides 
squish onto my plate. The hot lasagna spread across my tongue and I wanted to 
moan from the taste. 
“That good, huh?” City asked as he scooped a chunk in his mouth. 
“What? Did I?” 
“Yep, you moaned, sugar.” 
My face became heated. “Well, I’m used to Stouffer’s lasagna. This is amazing, 
City. You don’t know how lucky you were to grow up on this type of home cooking.” 
I slid the fork across my tongue and slowly chewed, letting all the flavors dance on 
my tongue. 
“I never thought about it. Suzy, you keep making noises like that and I won’t 
let you finish the next bite.” He set the fork on his plate and stared at me. 
“I need my fuel to get better.” I placed another sliver in my mouth, closed my 
eyes, and made a small sound in the back of my throat. 
“You have thirty seconds to finish what’s in front of you before I take your ass 
in the bedroom and give you something to really moan about.” He crossed his arms 
over his chest and looked at the watch on his wrist. I shoveled the food in my mouth. 
I felt torn in this moment, but the lasagna could always be reheated. 
“Fifteen.” He smiled at me and I felt everything in my body convulse and 
scream to be touched. I shoveled another forkful in my mouth as I chewed like a 
“Wait!” I held up my hand. “I need something to drink,” I said as I hopped off 
the high top chair around my caf√© table. 
“I got something for you to wash that down with, sugar. Time’s up.”

~ Review~
This is the first installment in Chelle's new series and  I was looking forward to reading it.  This book had me at the cover but the story is AMAZING!!! Loved meeting City and Suzy!   Opposites attract and let's just say they had a very strong pull!

Suzy a/k/a Suzette (only when deemed necessary by City) was as straight laced as they come.  A no swearing, looking for Mr. Reliable, hard working school teacher until she meets City and he turns her world upside down.

"Laugh while you can, sweet girl." I murmurred against her lips.  "I'm going to make you scream all of those dirty words that you're too scared to say." 

~ City

OMG!!! City a/k/a Joey, YES PLEASE!!!  A super sexy, Harley riding, tattoo artist who stops to help a stranded motorist....well that's what he wants us to think.   There were definitely more layers to City and I enjoyed uncovering each one.

It was nice to watch their story unfold.  Suzy was not accustomed to "family" and City had plenty of it.  We get a glimpse of all of the Gallo siblings and their personalities.  Their family banter was real and at times made me laugh.

Overall, this was a story about letting go...whether it was of an ideal, heartache or inhibitions....they covered it all and the journey was worth the ride.  So if you haven't had a chance to read anything by this author....go grab Throttle Me and get ready to become  a fan.  I know I will be looking forward to the next installment in the series, Hook Me.  This will be Michael's story.  Get Ready!
