Blog Tour/Review - Throttle Me by Chelle Bliss (#giveaway $20 GC)

Men of Inked Series Book #1

Suzy’s a control freak and has her life mapped out - work hard, find a man with a stable job, and live happily ever after. She’s content with the status quo, but her plan comes to a screeching halt when he enters her life and turns it upside down.

City gave up on love when his heart was crushed in college, preferring to be the typical bachelor. He spends his nights hopping from one bed to another and his days working at his family tattoo shop, Inked. A chance encounter on a dark road makes him question what he had sworn off forever – a relationship.

A night of passion and lust causes them to question everything. Is City the knight in shining armor to the damsel in distress? Can their relationship survive when a fantasy falls apart and a secret comes out that changes everything?
“Do you swear?” I asked as she set the glass back on the bar.
“What?” She gaped at me.
“Do you swear? Simple question. You’ve said ‘heck’ and ‘friggin’’ so far, but nothing dirty.”
“Oh, um, yeah, I swear.” Her cheeks turned pink and a small smile spread across her face. “I’m just used to watching my words with the kids around all day.”
“Prove it,” I said as I stared in her blue sapphire eyes.
“What? Why?”
“Cause I need to know if it’s in you. Are you all good girl or is there more under there dying to come out?” I hid the smile and laughter that was so close to breaking free from my lips. The pink of her cheeks spread across her face. I know I embarrassed her, but fuck, I needed to know if I stood a chance.
“Yes, I swear. What do you think I am? I’m not a child, City.” She glared at me as she raised the drink to her lips and wrapped them around the rim. Fuck I wanted those lips wrapped around my shaft, taking me deep and sucking me off.
“Never said you were, babe. Do you drink besides tonight?” I asked, now smiling because I knew she was upset. I liked the fire I saw in her eyes when I pointed out her good girl qualities – she obviously didn’t like being labeled.
“Sometimes. I’m just responsible. I don’t drink and drive. My dad used to be a cop and it was drilled into my head at an early age.” The words she spoke hit me like a ton of bricks. Drunk driving was the one thing in the world that caused my blood to boil.
Good girl teacher with a cop father? Just my luck. “Nothin’ wrong with that. Virgin daiquiris aren’t always your thing, then?”
“Why? Do I have to be a drinker? I mean does it make me less of an adult?”
“No, Suzy. Just trying to get a feel for who you are – what you are.”

Book provided by Author (Blog Tour) in exchange for an honest review.

I was pleasantly surprised with having the chance to read this story even though there were times that Suzy got on my last nerve with her lists and secretive fantasies. 

City though…wow….what a sexy alpha male…all tatted and pierced, he can rescue me any time!

  I just felt that at first I wasn’t able to connect with Suzette because of her “perfect” attitude in what she wanted – yeah, City was OK to have a fling with but he wasn’t good enough to settle down and give her the future she wanted.  She couldn’t see past his tattoos, motorcycle and rough exterior.  

What she was missing was inside of the man…..the perfect man for her.

Where Suzette had a “perfect” exterior – she had an inner seductress – bad girl persona……then we have City with the exterior of a “bad boy” but on the inside was the “perfect” love.  The two of them together made a great match and a great story by Ms. Bliss.

I can’t wait to find out who the next book is about!!
