Could you love a man surrounded by danger?
Gigi Gallo’s childhood was filled with the roar of a motorcycle and the hum of a tattoo gun. Fresh out of college, she’s about to start working at her family’s tattoo studio — Inked. But when she shows up the first day, she never expects to run into someone tall, dark, and totally sexy from her not-so-innocent past.
Pike Moore is a bossy biker with a cocky attitude and an even bigger ego. He came to Inked to start over. New town. New job. New roots. None of that included coming face-to-face with the hot chick who spent a week in his bed before she vanished without a trace.
But when Pike’s dark family history catches up with him, can he stop Gigi from being caught in the crossfire?
Flame is book one in the Men of Inked: Heatwave series by USA Today bestselling author Chelle Bliss. The Men of Inked: Heatwave series features steamy romance, hot heroes, and strong women.

5 star Review Flame (Men of Inked: Heatwave #1) by Chelle Bliss
I love the Gallo family and when I heard that Chelle Bliss had a new series coming out and that the heroine was Gigi Gallo, Suzy and City’s 21 year old daughter, I was so excited. However be prepared this book ends in a bit of a cliff hanger.
I have always loved Gigi’s character and have enjoyed watching her grow into a feisty, smart, independent young woman; her story did not disappoint.
I love that at the heart of these books is the love of family and what they will do for each other and those they love. However, having said that I was frustrated at times at how the family treated Gigi, I think they thought she was still 5 years old.
The man who Gigi fell for was always going to need to be strong enough to hold his own with the sassy, feisty young woman. In my opinion Pike Moore is arrogant, cocky, definitely an alpha male and is the perfect man for Gigi.
Pike is shocked to learn that the woman he spent passionate time with is his new bosses’s daughter. They are drawn to one another, like a moth to a flame with intense chemistry that cannot be ignored.
When Pike’s past comes back to haunt him, he will do what ever it takes to keep Gigi safe.
There was danger, drama, angst and so much chemistry between Gigi snd Pike that one was in danger of being scorched.
This was a fast paced, hot, steamy story full of surprising twists and turns which will keep you on the edge of your seat. Once click now you will not be disappointed. Chelle Bliss has another winning series on her hands in my opinion.
Sparks will ignite
Flame, Men of Inked; Heatwave Book 1 will set the sparks alight between our little Gigi who isn’t so little anymore and Pike, the tattooed hottie.
