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.

Inferno Hotness!!

Pike and Gigi are a force to be reckoned with.

This was a hot, sexy, steamy story to listen to. Pike is all Alpha and bossy and Gigi is a Gallo, nuff said. The narrators of this book Jason Clarke and Samantha Brentmoor captured this couple's essence perfectly. The dynamics of the Gallo family is always hilarious to witness and Chelle Bliss did not disappoint. The title of this book fits these two to a "T". It was one amazing roller coaster ride that I did not want to get off of.

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!!

Do not waste your money or credit!

I gave it a 1 star because zero isn't offered! I cannot stand spoiled, entitled, women as a lead. I couldn't finish the 4th chapter. The first 3 are relatively good and made the book seem promising but as soon as Gigi starts working for her dad the character goes downhill. If you are into that type of female you will love it. But as a listener that has basic respect for my fellow human, no thank you. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!!

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.

Hot narration for a fast paced story full of heat!

Gigi Gallo is the daughter of Joe (City) and Suzy Gallo from Throttle Me (Men of Inked Book 1). She’s all grown up and ready to start work in her father’s tattoo shop, Inked. She didn’t expect to run into Pike on her first day, who she spent a week with a while back but then left him without a trace. Pike is trying to make a new start in life but his past just keeps catching up to him.

This is a story full of tattooed alpha bikers. They are literally everywhere! Two generations of them. It’s a fast paced story with plenty of action. These two fell hard and fast and I love that although Pike hasn’t had the best role models of love in his childhood, he is fiercely protective and selfless in his love for Gigi. She returns his love and is showing him that family rallies and boy does Pike need them to rally for him. You’re introduced to some of the other kids who will get books later in the series and there’s some funny banter throughout. The heat in these books is just as their titles suggest. Tattoos, ripped muscles, cocky one liners and fiery passion.

There are lots of appearances of the couples from the two previous series but you don’t have to have read those books for these to make sense.

I listened to Flame and Burn (Gigi and Pike's Duet) and I’ve always been a fan of Jason Clarke. His voice is gruff and se*y as hell but, he is able to give you the softer side of Pike too. The emotions are right there for the taking. He serves them up for you to feast on. Samantha Brentmoor is a new narrator for me and let me tell you, what a find she is. Her performance was phenomenal. She has a great raspy voice and her male voices were top notch too. She gives you the emotions by the truck load. These two in combination give you all the heat with ALL the feels and emotions you could ever want. An excellent performance by both and I can’t wait to listen to some more Samantha now that I’ve found her.

I’d definitely recommend these books. You are gonna love these two and their fast paced, action packed, fiery story.

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

A great start

I thought this was a great start to a spinoff series. I really enjoyed the connection between Gigi and Pike and how their story played out. Seeing all of the Gallos again as secondary characters makes me want to go back and enjoy their series from the beginning.

Another Gallo Adventure

So good to be back in the Gallo universe starting with the eldest daughter of City and Suzy, GiGi. And let me tell you.. this chick is just as fiery as the rest of the Gallo women. What's a girl to do but fall for a man who's just like her daddy. Damn.. I just knew this would be some good ass trouble.. and it was.. Pike was smart, sexy and badass. Though I was confused at the beginning because I thought they said his name was Flame.. but that could've just been some nickname and not a biker name. I love Pike's backstory and how it comes to light. I'm not fond of the cliffhanger though it's fitting with how the previous series have gone. We have plots to finish.. I'm anxious to find out what happens to.... HA! you didn't like that cliffhanger did ya? well tough... you'll just have to read/listen to find out!
