Favorite Quotes:

“I ain’t dying, fool. I’m like Iron Man. The bullets bounce off.” Bear pounds on his chest, trying to prove his manhood.

Bear winces as his eyes soak me in. “He looks like hell,” he argues. James glares at Bear, slapping him in the chest with the back of his hand… Bear shrugs. “Wasn’t joking. Look at him.” He throws out his arm toward me. “If hell had a look, it would be that.”

She shrugs, giving me a smile. “My life is so boring. Like, if white paint had a life, the s

A wonderful conclusion to a great story!

I really enjoyed the second part of Gigi and Pike's story. This was a sweet, sexy and steamy love story with a captivating storyline and I was fully invested in how the fate of these two would turn out. The Gallos are truly something else. And It was fun to reconnect with all these amazing characters. I loved seeing Joseph alias City as a dad. He was exactly as expected over the top protective when it comes to protect his little baby princess. If like me y

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
Burn is the continuation of Flame. Gigi and Pike are back in the thick of drama and suspense. There’s a little romance that brings them together but like the first book there is too much drama going on in the book for me to really enjoy it.

Chelle didn’t waste time getting back into their the story. We’re thrust back into the chaos without building on anything. The storyline is still the same where as Pike’s brings chaos and violence to GiGi and her family kept bailing them out.

We are back with Gigi and Pike exactly where we left them .. in big trouble. The main thing I love about all these books is the family love and it continues in this duet. Pike is the rough to Gigi's smooth, he knows he's not good enough for her and Joe makes sure he doesn't forget it. Daddy Joe is just what I wanted but boy oh boy he mademe laugh so hard. I loved than when trouble came all the crazy Gallo men stepped up. If you think they'd have mellowed with age forget it they are NUTS. Seeing ...more

Gigi and Pike are back with enough drama to give any daytime soap opera a run for their money! Ya’ll … these two attract trouble like bees to honey! Not gonna lie, on more than one occasion all I could do is just laugh because it was a lot. However, it wasn’t OTT. It felt natural for Pike and Gigi to have this kind of life. Crazy, chaotic and passionate . That’s the best description I can come up with for them, and entertaining. Let’s not forget entertaining becau

5 star Review Burn (Men of Inked: Heatwave #2) by Chelle Bliss
Before you read Burn, you need to have read Flame as this is the continuation of Gigi Gallo and Pike Moore’s story. I have always loved Gigi’s character and have enjoyed watching her grow into a feisty, smart, independent young woman.
Narrated by Jason Clarke and Samantha Brentmoor, this was a fast paced, hot, steamy story full of surprising twists and turns which will keep you on the edge of your seat.  In my opinion Ja

A Chelle Bliss read never fails to stir my heart and rock my soul--but with this book, she did even better. Gouged my gut even deeper. Made me feel even more. Life throws the proverbial book at these two, and they work hard to come through the twists and turns together. That doesn't mean they do it without tiffs and misunderstandings, just like real people, but they make the conscious choice to prioritize each other, and to push past their emotional limits to do so. The burn is that good for the ...more

Burn is typical Florida, hot, dirty, sexy, and sometimes dangerous!

Second generation Gallos might be a little sexier, and definitely a little more dangerous than the original Men of Inked! Back to Pike and Gigi, they run into an issue with Pike's father when he tries to steal something that used to be his.

When Thomas, James, and Joe get involved to help they are ambushed by an MC that knew Thomas 20 years ago when he was undercover with the Sun Devils MC. Pike knows he can't let Gigi lose her D

Oh my lawd..... this book was AH-MAZE-ING!!! I thought Flame was a wild ride but nothing compares to the mind-blowing twists and turns that left me utterly speechless! Pike and Gigi's story was filled with suspense, drama, laughs and the true meaning of family whether by blood or heart! These two definitely didn't have it easy but then again, that's what makes their bond unbreakable. I hate to see their story come to an end but I love knowing that we'll see them pop up in many of the future Gall ...more

This books is so beautiful I absolutely love the Gallo’s bunch. Always have. Just when I think Chelle can’t outdo herself she proves me wrong again and again. I couldn’t put this book down I devoured it. And I want so much more. I can’t wait to see what’s to come. I know it’s going to be an epic ride! Make sure you read Flame before you read this book. Promise you won’t be sorry!!

I absolutely loved this amazing story! Gigi and Pike were such a well-matched couple. I loved the dynamic between them. The Gallo family is a loud, caring and crazy bunch that is constantly into each other's business which makes for some very funny and entertaining moments. I'm totally looking forward to the next installments in the Men of Inked: Heatwave series. Bravo Chelle Bliss! ...more

Flame and Burn (Men of Inked: Heatwave 1 and 2) by Chelle Bliss
Narrated by Jason Clarke and Samantha Brentmoor
Contemporary Romance, must be read together.

It had been a long time since I read a Chelle Bliss book, so I was excited she had a new series. I listened to the first few books in the original Men of Inked series years ago, and I didn’t catch that these are the 2nd (really 3rd) generation Gallos from that series. Luckily, It didn’t matter at all if I read the first series or not, because

Yesss! I have been waiting for this! Even though, it was wasn't a massive wait. It felt it because I so badly needed to know what the author had planned for the epic conclusion to Pike and Gigi's story. I fell in love with Gigi when she was first introduced into the Men of Inked series, and then I fell even more in love with her in Flame when the author gave us her own book and amazing story, and Pike? Well, I'm completely in love with him, more so after this book.

This picks up where Flame left

Burn is Hot, Hot, Hot!!

As the second generation of Gallo children grow up and become young adults I find myself feeling older somehow!! But at the same time I am sooo in love with the younger generation and how they interact with the older generations of aunts and uncles and grand parents and I love the whole big sloppy mess!! Pike and Gigi have an intense chemistry and heat up the pages of this book with sexy love scenes when they aren’t in danger from unknown enemies due to Pikes father. When

My Heart has been broken and Mended by Chell, Mandy@ Janise’s Jivin’ Book Blog

Burn Picks up where Flame left off with GiGi and Pikes story. And it has so much more emotion, Many trials and trying to keep those you love safe from the past sins of a “father” from touching the family you have found.

Chelle Bliss has a way of writing her characters with all the feels coming from them all. I love how she writes her alpha men with flair as well as her lady characters with sass for days. Truly an amazin

Can we get a brief Amen for this cover?!

If that was enough to draw you in, can we talk about how amazing this conclusion to Pike and Gigi’s story is?

These two take you on the ultimate ride with the past, present and future being threatened. So many twists and turns, lies and secrets get unveiled in this tale. If you’ve read the Gallo’s previously, you understand their brand of crazy and this book has no shortage of that.

**** 4 STARS

I HATE cliffhangers. They are one of my biggest pet peeves. HOWEVER, since the next book & pretty much entire series is already released, I'll let it slide. I'm just happy I'm not reading this when it came out like the first book. That made me so mad I took a star off and waited for the series to be completed and had to read the series all over again from the beginning. Damn cliffhangers!

Burn is the incredible conclusion to Pike and Gigi's story. Their whirlwind romance which started in Flame is still mired in a bit of crazy and a whole ton of excitement and I don't mean behind closed doors!

Picking up right where we left off in Flame, Pike's no good 'father' continues to mess up his life even though Pike left home years before. Just when things were turning a corner for Pike and Gigi, Colton Moore rears his ugly head and things get even more complicated. What Bliss does so well

This book continues where we left off in book with, continuing Pike and Gigi's story. You will be quickly drawn back into the story with all that is going on.

Pike has done everything he can to leave his past behind him and start a new life. The only things from the past that he has really brought with him is his Gran that he still keeps in touch with. Regretting that he left his little brother behind, but knowing that his parents always treated him well and showed him love. But thanks to his fat

This is book #2, you will need to read book one as this one picks up right where one finished.

We continue the story with Gigi & Pike. Gigi takes Pike to her families Sunday dinner. Her Dad Joe lays into Pile almost right away. With a little intervention from Gigi’s mom Joe let’s Pike go and be with the family. Joe doesn’t like that Pike has put his daughter in harms way. He thinks Pike is no good for his daughter. Although Gigi can speak & make for herself, Joe doesn’t like her being with Pike.

Phew, this book was such a fun ride! I absolutely loved it. It was an unputdownable and highly entertaining read from the first until the last page. I adored sexy, loyal biker Pike and feisty and big hearted tattoo artist Gigi from the start and desperately needed to know how their story continues in Burn. I'm sure I was not the only one with very high expectations! After all, we're talking about a Chelle Bliss book here. I knew she wouldn't let me down.

This book...let’s see where to start. If you didn’t read Flame, you need to. Burn won’t make sense otherwise. I love everything about Gigi and Pike. I love how strong and good Gigi is. She’s doesn’t have it easy when it comes to them, but she’s figuring it out. I understand the feelings her family has, but she’s an adult now. I know that parents always look after their children, but the Gallo’s make take that to the next level.

I didn’t think that Chelle Bliss could top Flame and not only did she accomplish that goal, she exceeded my expectations!! Burn (Men Of Inked: Heatwave #2) is freaking amazing and one hell of a wild ride. The storyline is exciting, action packed, concise, engaging and entertaining.

Burn starts off right where Flame ended and I couldn’t have been more happy about that. Pike and Gigi’s journey was filled with surprises, plot twists and turns and I went through a rollercoaster of emotions. I loved t
