Throttle Me by Chelle Bliss (Men of Inked #1)
Audiobook and e-book review. Can stand alone. Contemporary/erotic romance
Why did it take me so long to read Chelle Bliss? She writes books that are perfect for me, filled with alpha men, sweet, likable women, dirty talking tattooed (and pierced!) men, and hot sex with a little kink. Just what I enjoy. I highlighted a ton of hot and dirty quotes in Throttle Me too!
Love would come someday if he didn’t fuck me to death first.”
Suzy is stranded by the side of the road, when Mr. sex-on-a-stick, “City” comes by on his bike to rescue the damsel in distress. Suzy is sweet and innocent on the outside, with a very dirty mind on the inside, and I really enjoyed that about her.
People think I’m a good girl, and I am, but my mind is filled with dirty thoughts that I could never share with a mate.”
City owns a tattoo shop with his siblings (I love the close-knit, Italian family. We met them all in The Gallos, a free prequel). City is deeper than we first thought, and has been dealt some rough cards. But when he sees Suzy, he wants her.
She was the girl next door, the untouched bookworm that every guy wanted to conquer. I wanted to make her dirty. I wanted to make her scream filthy words while I fucked her. I wanted to corrupt this girl in the worst possible way. She would be a challenge, and maybe I’d found someone worthy of my time.”
Megan was listening to the book on audible while I read it, so we decided to discuss it.
Megan: I loved City’s character. And holy hotness!
Ana: I didn’t expect to love it so much. And had no clue it was that hot!
Megan: I was really impressed with the audio it was narrated by both of female and a male and the male had a really New York style accent which fit Joey’s character to a T!
I loved Suzy’s character too. She was innocent yet still pretty fierce.
Ana: Do the man and woman narrators each read their own chapters, or is it like a play?
Megan: Yes, each read their own chapters. I really enjoyed it.
Ana: Was he sexy sounding?
Megan: YESSSSS!! SUPER SEXY! He had that New Yorker Italian vibe going on it was really hot.
And I absolutely loved the side characters of Sofia and Kayden do you know if they have their own book?
Ana: That was actually something that bothered me a bit. I felt like I missed their book.
Megan: Me too!
Megan: I was also a little bummed that we didn’t get a reenactment of City’s fantasy of the sex on the bike….
I loved that this was a low level angst book it was a pretty sweet read for me.
Ana: Me too. There was a little more talk of kinky than there was real kink. I want the kink.
Megan: I absolutely loved mama Gallos!
Ana: Read The Gallos. It’s free and like 50 pages. And it’s totally hot!
Megan: Awesome! I love hot! I picked it up, and look forward to reading it. I’m going right into the audio of Hook Me tonight. Mikey’s story.
Ana: I want to also, but I can’t fit it in for a while 🙁
Megan: I don’t know why, if it was just the cover or what, but I always thought that these books were MC books. I was pleasantly surprised!
Ana: I thought so too!
Megan: I wonder why we both thought that?
Ana: I guess the name Throttle and the bike on the cover.
Megan: I’m really glad you suggested that I read this . It was exactly what I was looking for
I was a little worried that Kaylee was going to cause trouble a bunch of unnecessary angst.
Ana: I though there might be a crazy she needed to be rescued from.
Chelle is totally in with our favorites. Harper, Aurora, Tessa.
Megan: Agreed. I’m glad that it read the way it did…. I thought it was a really good unlikely couple love story.
Ana: This was perfect for my blog slogan “alpha males in sexy tales”.
Megan: TRUTH! I love me a good alpha male! And City filled that role perfectly.
Did I mention that this book was freaking HOT?
Ana: Yup. I’d like to see Chelle take a few more chances in the next one. She stayed safe but that’s ok. Or maybe I just wanted more kink. Lol. Because she can write HOT
Megan: I laughed out loud at the party pickle.
Ana: Yeah, I liked the element of humor thrown in. And I loved cute and funny Suzy.
Megan: Sweet and innocent…but a hidden dirty mind.
