Flame 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 bestselling author Chelle Bliss. The Men of Inked: Heatwave series features steamy romance, hot heroes, and strong women.

More Gallo Hotness!!!5 star

Chelle Bliss, you have done it once again.... another 5 star Gallo story! Gigi and Pike will give you all the feels. Gigi is all fire and sass and Pike is a total alpha male gentleman. It’s a must read and listen you will NOT be disappointed in the start of the next Gallo generation!!!55


Amazing5 star

I absolutely loved this book! Gigi is a strong female and Pike is sexy as sin, what more could you ask for. This is a must read if you love the Gallos.55


Excellent audiobook and hard copy5 star

Well done audiobook, dual narrators, both are excellent. I started this book and thought “oh, this is just another of the same ol’ thing”. Let me also say I had to revise that thought. WOW! It is the same but not! Does that make sense? No? Well, pick up this book and enjoy. Gigi and Pike get the whole Gallo group involved in this roundhouse biker romp. There is the signature steam, romance and mystery. This does end on a bit of a cliffhanger, but worth the read.55


Terrific Gallo story in a new series!4 star

Fabulous cover! 😍🔥I can't believe that Joey (City) and Suzy's little girl is all grown up! What a fantastic woman she is! Smart, sassy, beautiful, sexy and a baller buster just like her Aunt Izzy. Gigi is just what you would expect as the first born of her fabulous parents. She's got talent like her hunky Dad, the sweetness (sometimes) like her lovely Mom and the snarky comebacks just like her awesome Aunt. If you've read the first series with these outstanding characters you know what I'm talking about. And now Gigi's joining the family business as a tattooist after finishing college. And who shows up on her first day? Yep, the sexy stud biker (her gal pals nickname Flame cuz he's smoking hot) she spent a weekend with between the sheets during Spring Break a year ago. Sizzling chemistry and hot sex. Poor Pike! He thinks he finally has his dream job at Inked, the Gallos famous tattoo shop, until his first day turns into a challenge when he runs into the girl from his weekend sheet fest. Gigi's not exactly happy having her fling around her family and Pike just wants to keep his job. They try to stay away from each other but their chemistry is too hot. I loved Pike. He's a sexy hunk with a not so great family, lots of talent and a determination to get what he wants. He is yummy with his gorgeous eyes, his sweet southern manners and his way around a woman body especially Gigi's. Trying to hide their feelings from the family is challenging with protective Daddy and the Uncles. Just when things get on track danger appears from Pike's past and the Uncles jump in to fight the battles and keep everyone safe. Ends in a cliffhanger just when the heat gets going. Ugh! I'm ready for the next story. Chelle Bliss has given us another spectacular Gallo story that's wonderfully written with an incredible cast of characters and a dream couple in Gigi and Pike. I love catching up with the terrific Gallo family and friends. This is a terrific start to a new Gallo series with lots of fantastic secondary characters for future stories. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC.45

Gigi & Pike are amazing5 star

Gigi and Pike...the title for this book is perfect for them. Gigi is Izzy 2.0 and I love her. These two were absolutely perfect for each other. I loved how Gigi didn’t let the craziness going on get to her. She might have been young but she knew what she wanted. Pike was just like all the other Inked men, very protective and willing to do anything to keep Gigi safe. He didn’t let the overbearing Gallo men get to him either. It was so fantastic to see all the characters from the Inked series back again and putting their two cents in whether it was wanted or not. I loved how Joe was with Gigi...she’s his baby girl after all. I can’t wait to get Burn. Definitely need to see how this turns out.55

Loved5 star

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..LOL55
