Bear's story...

There’s only one thing worse than dating a friend’s sister—sleeping with his mother.

Fran DeLuca’s known for her bossy, overbearing personality almost as much as for her love of nylon tracksuits. But when someone runs off with fifty thousand dollars, she becomes involved in an ALFA investigation and catches the eye of silver fox biker, Bear.

Bear North, ALFA’s

Sexy, entertaining, and suspenseful, Bear and Fran's story was chock-full of HEART and HEAT!

Bear has always intrigued me. I was surprised to see that Chelle was going to give us his HEA. I mean I was over the moon, but surprised nonetheless. He's what you consider a more mature hero in this romantic suspense. But believe me, that maturity comes with more gruffness and more sexiness than you can handle! And Fran...OMG! This woman. She is just incredible and such the PERFECT MATCH for our down and

I should have stopped reading at the beginning of the book, but the plot was interesting to me. I did skim parts of this book. My biggest issue with this was that the hero was portrayed as this handsome and fit dude who had all the stamina in the world, but the heroine was written like she was a granny. They are both older. He turned 52 in the book, but I’m not sure how old she was. I think she was 50.

The male was really really experienced (manho). But of course the female didn’t have as much e

Wicked Impulse is the 3rd book in the ALFA Private Investigations Series and features Bear & Fran.

For romance readers who crave getting their hands on a romance with a more mature couple, this is your book!

I wasn’t really sure what type of backstory Bear was going to have, but I think Chelle gave him a past that really fit and made him so lovable. And Fran... what a firecracker, well – once she loss the tracksuits ;)

The one thing that was surprising was the amount of humor this story had. Fra

Before we start lemme warn you ... This review will be FILLED with cuss words. Ready?

Chelle Bliss wasn't kidding when she said this book is full of offensive language and hot HOT sex. The first chapter has 17 or 18 forms of the word "fuck." I counted a couple times and kept getting different answers (bleary-eyed, mind you) so let's go with Chelle Bliss gave 18 fucks in one chapter and it just got better from there.

Bear and Fran are like, my idols. I hope to God I have that kind of desire/passion

I don't read about hero's who have been driven more times than an enterprise rent a car. They're gross and there's no way I'd let them touch me. This hero was an epic man-ho who even let a stripper bite him right before he got married. What kind of an idiot heroine forgives that crap? One I don't want to read about, that's for sure. ...more

Wicked Impulse was the third book in the Alfa Private Investigations series by Chelle Bliss.

Murray “Bear” North has been present in both the Men of Ink series as well as the Alpha PI series. He’s been the sexy enforcer when needed and was always a total playboy, never committing to a woman more than once. He was a longtime widow with his beloved wife having died in childbirth and vowing never to get close to anyone again. He lived his life with many regrets, yet he found his home with the friend

So, this has become my favorite Chelle Bliss book for so many reasons. It's suspenseful, it's hilarious, and it's hot as hell! I was sucked back into the Alfa PI world almost immediately and I didn't come up for air till I uttered the words "the end." This is a story with more mature main characters so it was easy for me to relate to them.

There are some series that are my forever favorites, interwoven books that hold me tightly in their clutches with characters I could read about endlessly. Chelle Bliss’ enthralling ALFA Private Investigations and her Men of Ink series are ones I could devour for an eternity. All-consuming. Alluring. Achingly addictive. Wicked Impulse, the latest Chelle Bliss bookgasm, is a sweet, sexy, and suspenseful story that seduces from head to toe.

DAMN!! Bear and Fran proved that age is just a number. They could give the younger peeps a run for their money. They were fricking smokin hot!!!

Bear lost his only love years ago and spends his days working at ALFA PI and nights with random women. He has a past and a reputation that follows him, so when he volunteers to help their current investigation by questioning Morgan's mother, Fran... Morgan is none too happy. He doesn't want the man anywhere near his mom and warns him at every turn. Thoug

Paige's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

I was definitely intrigued by the description of the book. I'm sure "Don't date your friends mom" is bro code number 1 but Bear could have cared less when it came to dating Fran.

The author does a great job telling the story of two mature adults, who connect on more than just a physical level. They both need the other to break them from the past and into their new beginning.

Bear didn't have it easy. He was running from his past and lived wit

It’s been too long since I read a book by this author so I was super happy to get back into her books with this gem of a read.

Bear and Fran. What an awesome couple. I was so happy to hear that Bear was getting his own story and I wasn’t disappointed.

This is a really well told story. A mixture of suspense, laugh out loud moments and some really hot sexy scenes had me loving this story from start to finish.

I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.

I’ve always found Bear an interesting character. One who has his friends’ backs at all cost but still conceals parts of himself from them, never allowing his brothers to see the pain hidden beneath Bear’s bravado and jokes…the agony that’s lasted three decades since he lost his wife, abandoned his kids, and maneuvered down a path of self-destruction of his own.

The fact that Bear’s a manwhore hasn’t gone unnoticed by his fellow private investigators, which makes the fact that Fran DeLuca, Morgan’

My feet started to move on their own, breaking out in a cross between a happy dance and the running man – but more of a senior version.

I’ve spent the last twenty years being ‘good.’ I’m over it.

Oh My! What an adventure we have with Bear. The sexy silverfox of the ALFA team finally gets his story told and man is it hot!

Murray "Bear" North doesn't have the cleanest slate behind him. Back in the day he was known as the troublemaker and not so great guy. After his wife died during childbirth, he lost all hope of ever loving again. Leaving his two small children with his sisters, he lead a life of crime and even did some time in jail.

That was then. Now he is turning a new leaf as part of

Once again Chelle Bliss has delivered with the men of ALPHA PI!!!!

I have to admit I was a little nervous with this one. Not about Bear, because come on he's Bear and he's sexy as sh*t!!! No, I was more worried about Fran. But Chelle Bliss has done a good job keeping this sexy lady under wraps until now and this match-up really worked!!! Turns out, Fran has a lot going on under those track suits she's so fond of, and she's just as much of a firecracker with Bear as she is with her family. And Bea

Older couple Contemporary Romance. Standalone, 3rd in a series of related standalones.
Since I like to read books in order, I fell so behind on the Men of Inked Series by Chelle Bliss that I never read anything after because I always intended on catching up. But being someone who is about to stare 50 right in the face, I really enjoy novels with older couples. Chelle assured me Wicked Impulse  stood alone, so I listened to the audiobook.

Fran DeLuca I want to be you! Wicked Impulse was Witty and Sexy. Fran and Bear were perfect together. I love the way their relationship was real and funny "Bend over and touch your toes." Her eyebrows drew together . Do you know how old I am? F*@! me, Bear. I haven't been able to touch my toes for twenty years. I couldn't get enough of these two.
I love the family dynamics and the friendship between the characters.
I really enjoyed this story and can't wait to get more from ALFA PI.
This book wasn't my favorite. Bear never really spoke to me. I tried.. I figured he was a good guy underneath it all. He had a troubled past and no one would give him credit where credit was due. I understood Morgan's attitude and I'm glad it cleared up quickly because he was aggravating. I liked the "older" spin on the couple and seeing things from their perspective but it wasn't my favorite.
I am glad Fran changed the way she dressed because I was literally picturing The Golden Girls and she w

Bear, oh Bear, we’ve been teased, we’ve been taunted and now finally we have our very own special Bear time, as long as you don’t mind sharing him with Fran that is.

Right from the start of this book, it’s clear that Bear is going to leave a lasting memory on us poor unsuspecting readers. Just what is it that makes strong men who become broken by circumstance so loveable? Bear has lost the love of a good woman once but is he strong enough to trust his heart to another, in this case, Fran?

First off, bravo to Chelle Bliss for writing a romance between two older adults! Bliss’ is breaking through the traditional romance barrier of young or early 30’s love with a hot AF couple in your fifties. Whoever said we get better with definitely was talking about Bear and Fran. Bear is my swearing spirit animal and is many variations of the f-bomb made me laugh so many times because well, it’s my favorite word!

Ok so let's talk about Bear ..... the man I have been waiting for since I started the Men of Inked series. Yes, I have loved the other buys, but Bear has been waiting patiently to come in, prove he is the quiet one you need to watch out for, and melt everyone with his story.

Bear has had anything but an easy life, and as a result, has made some decisions he isn't proud of. However he won't make excuses for his behavior either. Yes he was a manwhore, but that is because he hadn't found anyone he w

I have wanted Bear’s story now for YEARS! We first met him in City’s book (Throttle Me) and I just was intrigued and wanted to know about this bear of a guy. I never expected what we got, it reminded me that there is always more to someone than what you first see or see on the surface. Now Bear, oh he is a dirty dirty man and I loved him even more when you got to know the other side of him. Fran, oh lord Fran I k

WOW! This one is one you do NOT want to miss!! I knew I would love Bear(because who would love him with a name like that), but I didn't know I'd fall so hard for this #silverfox!

What I love about Chelle Bliss' books is that she has intertwined her Men Of Inked series with the ALFA series. This series is more suspense with the erotic/romance twist. I LOVE them!! I love being able to follow the Gallos along with the DeLucas & now the Norths.

It has been years since Bear has been able to give his heart to another woman and no "bro-code" is going to get in his way because together they are unstoppable! They

While working with his family and friends he gets a crush on Fran; who just happens to be the mom of one of his co-workers. This can't end well.
