Maria Kaye Yeah, pretty sure you can since the other books in the series revolve around a different couple/set of characters.

Second time reading Chelle Bliss and I’m glad I persevered!

I first read book 1 in this series, "Throttle Me" not so long ago and I wasn’t quite sold. The blurb promised something fantastic and I was in a mood for an alpha hero, unfortunately I was sad to read a pretty basic story with insta-love and too many clichés.
The cover whore in me also pleads guilty because the covers for the Men of Inked series are just.. gah!
Let’s just say that if I had the paperback, I would stroke
3.5 "You. Will. Be. Mine." stars

Oh well, continuing with the outbursts of the Gallo men in the family and this time it's little Izzy's turn to kick some ass. Isabella/Izzy Gallo is anything but a sweet, quiet and compliant woman. She's the same as her brothers only in a woman's body. She swears, she can kick ass and she fucks like no man's business, when she wants and who she wants…
No one told me what to do. I was Izzy Gallo. Slave to no one and master of my own destiny.

This audio was only okay for me. The female narrator seemed to speak very slow so I had to speed up the narration some just to make it easier to listen to.

Ladies and Gentlemen.. You ready?


Meet Izzy Gallo, smart-ass woman who takes no shit from a man. Being the only girl with 4 brothers didn't help her being a sweet girl. And believe me when I say that this one is a badass!


And James Caldo, dirty talker with a cock pierced (Yes it is important enough for me to mention it :p)


James and Izzy have a little history together. They met at her brother's wedding and after one night of pure pleasure she ran away...
A few weeks after, circumstances brought them
2.5 rating. In the prequel, I really enjoyed Izzy and James's cat and mouse game. I was interested in continuing their sexy love and hate dynamics in book 3. In the beginning, I was intrigued but after a couple of chapters into it I became very annoyed with Izzy's tough as nails persona. I found her extremely irritating and annoying. I mean, I love a strong sassy independent woman, but come on she was over the top. SHE WAS ANNOYING AS HELL!! I want to say at least seventy five percent of the boo ...more

What I like about this book is even though Izzy is tough. Underneath that tough exterior is a woman who wants to be cherished just like anyone else. James Caldo is just the same. A tough DEA agent. When Izzy

Still waiting for the story.

I enjoyed the previous books in this series and I thought that it would continue with this book; however, I found this book lacking. The author spent at least 60 percent of the book with Izzy internal/external dialog about how bad she as and what she would or would not take in a relationship. Yet the first opportunity to demonstrate this belief was when she was performing fellatio with drool running down the side of mouth, tears running down her face and her gag refle

The cavemen unite...
Damn, I love those bilingual, bossy, bada$$, dirty'talkin' cavemen! I knew it would take a strong man to handle Izzy's sass. Being the only daughter in the family with 4 bossy brothers she learned to fight early. She doesn't take any $hit from anyone. I had been so looking forward to her story and I wasn't disappointed. I especially enjoyed the funny and sexy text messages between James & Izzy. She is determined that he's too bossy and wants a weak woman he can control, so he
For me this one was the best in the series so far, because at least there was a storyline, a plot even.
It almost made it to the fourth star, but it is still plagued with some of the issues of the previous books : too many editing errors and, far more annoying, this author's habit to constantly repeat herself .
"No one told me what to do. I was Izzy Gallo. Slave to no one and master of my destiny."
Yeah right, I wonder how many times I read the same blurb in this book and the previous ones ...

Holy %¿@*, what a story! Izzy and James certainly didn't disappoint with their instalment in the outstanding Men of Inked series.

James is my new obsession and Izzy hit the nail on the head when she said that the sound of James' voice is "pussy clenching"! But let's be honest, everything you read about James in this book will have you living every lustful fantasy known to woman! Move over City, James has joined the party.

We had hints and teasers into Izzy's life during Throtted but nothing could
Love this series

Izzy is a tough chick growing up with over protective brothers and having to hold her own made her one tough nut to crack.

James is the exact same breed as her brothers, overprotective, domineering an all round Alpha male.

Izzy didn't want to be controlled she'd grown up with her brothers trying to control who she could and couldn't have a relationship with as they scared off everyone who got close to her, none of them measured up for their Izzy well until James they liked him and

This is a standalone that is also a part of Men of Inked series, we get a closer look at James and Izzy's story!

We met them before, and we even got a glimpse at them in Resisting, but now we get to know them even better!

They were passionate, hot, pure burning fire and they were a total match! They were stubborn, hard headed and strong. They were indpendent and totally their own person. But they were also vulnerable, loyal and loved fiercely!

Izzy and James path cross again and this time he's not letting her go. Of course, she runs emotionally but in the end James gets his woman. This book ended with a HEA for now feel. Plus there was a dog gone cliffy involving her brother. Why are the rest of the ebooks in this series so much? As my sister is fond of saying...everything goes on sale, eventually. Guess I'll have to be patient.

Chelle Bliss brings back my favorite two people as Isabella is thrown into a situation that isn't easy to get out of. She takes us down a road of cat and mouse and this time there will be no running without a chase.

Isabella Gallo is still well, Izzy. Just as sassy, bawdy, and bullheaded as before. But this time we get to not only see, but experience the MORE that James saw within her. We get to see her falling in lo... and it's beautiful, breathtaking, exhilarating, even scary all at once.

Izzy Gallo is the only female sibling and has been more than a match for her 4 brothers since she was a small child.

However as a grown woman she now finds herself more than matched with DEA agent James Caldo and their story is as complicated as it is sexy.

Wow! What can a girl say about a book that is so HOT you find yourself squirming in your chair, having drenched panties and wondering where the hell can you find a man like James!!!!????

Chelle Bliss has completely outdone herself with this book in The Men of Ink Series. She writes with a talent that is undeniable, humor that makes you laugh out loud, passion that makes you want to fall in love and enough mystery that you have to continue reading because you must know what the end will be.

Shhhh.....there are just some thing you don't want to hear. Don't say it. Just keep it to yourself. Izzy doesn't want to hear it. Just shhhhhh.

Izzy is the Gallo Gal. She is the one sister to the whole passel of Gallo men. Some sexy, bossy, possessive men. But this is not about them. This is about Izzy. She has been raised with these Alpha men and she is about tired of them telling her what to do, where to go and who to go there with. She knows what she wants and it is NOT a man l

So I told Chelle that after reading Throttle Me that no other book of her's would beat it. To me Throttle Me was and would forever be my favorite. All because of City! I love that boy. But let me just say I was so wrong SO VERY VERY WRONG! Resist Me is by far my favorite Chelle Book and James has taken over my heart. I love that boy hard! Never would think you would find someone with a dirtier mouth then City!!! Oh and Izzy can I just say I have a HUGE ass girl crush going on for that girl! Like ...more

I love when an author can write a leading lady that is worthy falling in love with. Most of the time it's the male lead that grabs a hold of you. But for me, it was Izzy that did that.

I mean, I loved James, don't get me wrong. His witty comebacks and amazing Alpha Male personality made me love him.

I loved watching Izzy fall for him and learn to change the way she has always been. It wasn't an easy road and there were times I want to smack her and say "get your shit together, you are about to lo

This series is about the Gallo Family children. They are all alpha males (except Izzy), who are hardworking, focused, and tend to get what they want. Izzy, who after growing up with a bunch of boys learns a thing or two, is tough as nails.

Izzy, Izzy, Izzy. I love you! She is a mouthy, and all around bad ass chick! She may be the youngest Gallo, but she is probably the loudest and most opinionated.

James is a cop, and he is after Izzy. Not because she is bad, but because he thinks she is the sexi

Throughout the Men of Inked Series we have gotten a little bit of Izzy here and there. We have learned that she is a bad ass woman that stands her ground. She takes no crap from any man. Her brothers get it back full throttle when they pull out their caveman tactics.

So whats happens when she meets her match?

In steps...James.

This is my favorite of the series so far. Who doesn't love Izzy, but this shows us a side of Izzy that you may not expect. She runs her brothers, but has she finally met her match? I enjoy how Bliss gives us two point of views of her story. Being able to get inside the characters thoughts and emotions helped me to understand the characters motives.

I have never pitied a hero more for getting the girl.
I have never felt so bad for a hero. This heroine was a loose cannon and there were so many things wrong with this book. It was so bad I don't even want to think about it anymore.
