Someone was after her and it was my duty to stop them.

Never cross the line. That had always been my rule. But that was before Race True.

The moment I saw her, I wanted her. But there was a problem. She wasn’t just another pretty face—no, she was my first client at ALFA PI. My take-what-I-want attitude shouldn't include her, but how the hell can I be expected to keep my hand

I was complaining to my friend about how I just couldn't find anything I felt like reading. She said "Read the 27th unread book on your Kindle". So that's exactly what I did and for an indecisive libran like me who finds choosing her next read sometimes the hardest task it was great. Thanks Lily I'll be coming to you for more numbers soon, that idea was:

Sinfully Sexy!!! Sinful Intent by Chelle Bliss was one hot sexy erotic suspense. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book!!!! Ms. Bliss never fails in incorporating the elements of steam, sexiness, drama, angst, suspense, and romance into her books.

Sinful Intent is the first book in Chelle Bliss’ newest series, the ALFA Private Investigations. You do not have to read the Men Of Inked series in order to enjoy Sinful Intent, but as someone who has read it I think having read it added to my enjoyment of Sinful Intent but please know that you don’t have to at all.

Dear Chelle,

You have once again made me fall head over heels in love with you. My only wish is that we lived closer so I could truly stalk you, like you deserve. (By the way, you are out of milk!)

Love, Me!

So as you can see, I might be a tad obsessed with the Gallo family. I have a good right to be, as the way they were created makes me feel like I am sitting around the table for Sunday dinner with them. Chelle has once again brought us a great story.

This is my first book by Chelle Bliss and it won't be my last. Outstanding Alpha Male in Morgan Deluca and a feisty Heroine Race True. I loved the dynamic of the family, their closeness and how they welcome Morgan into the fold and business. the sexual tension between the MC's is hot and the passionate love scenes are even hotter. This a 5 star read and a great beginning to a new series.

Highly recommend

Word to the wise, always knock...
I was very excited to get my hands on the first book in this new series, especially after suffering from #CoverLust while waiting to read it. It really enhances the reading pleasure when you have a visual of Morgan...sigh. Chelle Bliss fans will be thrilled to learn that while one series ended, and another began, some of our favorite characters appear in both. You will not be deprived of the strong family support, Sunday dinners, endless sibling smartass banter,

When former Navy SEAL Morgan DeLuca joined the team at ALFA Investigations, he never imagined he’d find more than a job. But his first client was a drop-dead gorgeous, powerful businesswoman with a no-holds-barred attitude.

Chelle Bliss has done it again. She's sucked me right in with a brilliant story. This is the first book in the ALFA Private Investigations series. Although the fabulous characters from the Men of Inked series are in this book this can be read as a standalone. (However if your looking for a brilliant series with hot sexy men and great storylines then get 1-clicking Men of Inked).

Chelle Bliss starts her ALFA series off with bang! Sinful Intent is deliciously sexy and absolutely thrilling from beginning to end. This book is sure to be your next best read.

Men of Inked fans will fall in love with Chelle Bliss's new crop of hot alpha men in the ALFA series. There will be cameo appearances from our favorite Gallos, including Izzy, but they are not the focus of the series. Never fear! Bliss doesn't let her fans down. Although the Gallos are in the background, you will not be d

I love Chelle Bliss and was so excited to read her newest series! If you’ve read Men of Inked, then you will fall head over heels in love with Morgan (NICE NAME!!) DeLuca, a Gallo cousin and Alpha male extraordinaire. He is just out of the Army and looking for direction in life when he gets an offer from his Florida cousins to join the ALFA PI agency. He picks up and leaves Chicago and his meddling mother to start over again with a new job.

Sinful Intent, by the amazing Chelle Bliss, is a raw, riveting, rewarding, and romantic roller coaster of a read that will swallow your heart and soul, and scorch your panties. Like with the Men of Inked series, Chelle Bliss takes you on an adrenaline adventure throughout the whole story, which is not only is sizzling hot, but on-the-edge-of-your seat thrilling too. You'll experience nearly every emotion while taking this ride into book bliss: happiness, frustration, anger, laughter, and sadness ...more
3 Morgan and Race Stars

I enjoyed this book for the most part. Morgan wasn't a favourite hero of mine- he seemed to be quite arrogant and said some crass things sometimes but I liked the other side of him which was loyal and protective.
Race starts off as quite a brittle and uptight character but she softens up and is quite sweet and vulnerable underneath the surface.
This story went along the path I was expecting it to but it was darker than I thought it would be.

I liked the male character separately in the beginning. Once the female lead came in, the story divebombed. Not for me. I have it a good 2 hours of attempt.

We’re back in the arms of the Gallo’s but this time the series focusses on Thomas and James’ new business venture, Alfa Private Investigations.

This first instalment features Morgan, cousin to the Gallo’s off-spring, a previous bad boy as he tries to carve a path into his new life after leaving the army. After agreeing, somewhat reluctantly, to accompany his Ma to Izzy and James’ wedding, he is surprised by the warm welcome he receives and even more surprised by the offer of a job with Thomas and

This is the first book in the ALFA PI series and is a follow on to the Men of Inked series about the Gallo brothers. Here we meet their cousin Morgan DeLuca, who joins Thomas Gallo in his new PI agency.

Chelle Bliss starts the ALFA PI series with a BOOM, BANG, POW!! This was an electrifying start to something new, suspenseful, hilariously funny and sensually sexy!!

Morgan DeLuca, you big freaking sweetie!!
He's an alpha through and through with a side of bawdiness, and a dirty mouth just like the Gallo men. He's also soft as a teddy bear and his 'my mother is always on my back, but I love Fran DeLuca' was proof of just that! One decision changed the course of his life and resulted in

Right out of the box, I’ll tell you I liked the storyline and characters. It was fantastic getting to delve back into the lives of the Gallo family, and while Morgan DeLuca is a cousin, he gives the reader exactly what we’ve come to expect from the Gallo men. Hot alpha male-strong, protective and dedicated. The interactions between him and his mother are fantastic (gotta love those strong, slightly-overbearing-at-times mothers, right?), and he fits in perfectly with his cousins…which for those o ...more

After 8 years in the military Morgan DeLuca is back home in Chicago and at a crossroads. He doesn't know what to do with his life.
He's tired of the cold weather and his mother's nagging, but one trip to Izzy and James' wedding and visiting with his extended family in sunny Florida could be just what he needs.

Race True is a hard working woman, she pushes herself at work to be the best she can be, sacrificing friendships and relationships along the way. She literally has no life outside of work, b

I love the Men of Inked series & this book just continued that streak! It's a new series but felt like I was just continuing with MOI since Morgan is actually the Gallo's cousin! This first book in the ALFA PI series is HOT, steamy, suspenseful, nail biting, intense & made me smile a lot!

Morgan is a tough guy much like the Gallo boys. He's going to Florida to Izzy's wedding & his plans change quickly when James & Thomas offer his a job at the PI! His plans REALLY change when fate brings Race in

I wasn't immediately hooked on this book. I thought Morgan was a meanie who had a huge chip on his shoulder. Race was Bitchy, plain and simple. I couldn't see how the author was going to turn this around for me but she did!

For me the book finally held my attention about a third of the way into reading . The character seemed to gel. They worked.

The only piece I thought these boys needed to work on is their PI skills . They were a bit green when they were called upon.

Other than that, I think th

This was a good story. I liked Morgan and Race alright...the story was fine but there were things I had issues with. This is the first story I've read by this author and there's something about the writing that just wasn't for me. I might try another of her books in the future but that's unsure because I'm not sure I'm into her writing style.

Race is a female executive at a big firm. She's had to be a bitch to get where she is at work and keep her position. Race lost her father when she w
