Michael Gallo found his calling in life – he wants to kick ass. He works at Inked as a piercer, but spends his mornings training and dreaming of winning an UFC championship. Michael is the road to achieving his goal when a chance encounter alters his world forever. The title is no longer enough – he must capture the woman of his dreams.
Dr. Mia Greco is dedicated to saving lives and helping those less fortunate. She doesn’t have time to meet Mr. Right with her busy schedule. She buries herself in her work and helping humanity. Fate steps in and sweeps the carpet out from under her. She tries to deny the pull to him, a man that uses his fists for gain, but the universe won’t let her walk away so easy and Michael isn’t one to take no for an answer.
He has a secret that may rip them apart. There are forces bigger than them at work; drawing them in and making their worlds collide – not letting either one of them walk away.
"Life's too short not to enjoy it."
After reading Throttle Me, book 1 in the Men of Inked series, I fell in love with the Gallo family and I could not wait for Michael's story.
Michael is a piercer at the family's tattoo shop, since he doesn't have the artistic talent that his other family members do; however, his passion is fighting in the cage as an MMA fighter.
"He was a rough one, a born fighter."
After a fight, Michael ends up in the ER and comes face to face with a sexy doctor, Mia Greco. Mia blows off all of Michael's advances and the two part ways after he is released.
It isn't until months later that the duo see each other again, literally running into each other at the gym, and sparks fly.
"To new beginnings."
Even though Mia sees what Michael loves as 'barbaric', since she chooses to heal while he chooses to inflict pain, she agrees to go out with him. The two take time getting to know one another and Michael pushes Mia while she keeps him on his toes.
When they finally hit the sheets?!?
Holy smokes Batman...HOT! HOT! HOT!
"You're wicked.""I'm just getting started, hot stuff."
These two are electric and so good together...they fit together perfectly and constantly made me cheesy smile.
"There is something that brought us together. I feel like I've known you forever and I don't want to be without that feeling. I can't lose you."
But in all books there has to be an 'issue' that arises or else we would get bored right?
Enter psycho nut job...TAMMY.
This chick belongs in a straight jacket...no lie!
Michael knows what he wants and isn't about to let Mia go without a fight...no matter what, or rather who, stands in their way.
"Mia...I won't break your heart. For the first time in my life, I've found something worth fighting for, someone more important than me."
Next up will be Isabella Gallo's story, aka Izzy. She is the lone sister in the Gallo family having four older brothers. Being raised with all those men has made her one tough cookie but I can not wait for us to see beyond that because I have no doubt that the right man can crack her tough exterior...and seeing the boys go head to head with any man that thinks they are worthy of Izzy will be priceless.
Oh yeah and be sure to read the very end of Hook Me because we get a small glimpse into her book and I was seriously bouncing with excitement...no lie!
Cue the happy dance!
His hand rested against my back, pulling me closer, and I became lost in his kiss. The feel of his rough thumb pad as he stroked my face made my body feel on fire. The sound of the rain beating against the truck, the thunder rumbling outside, and our breath frantic and quick, filled the cab.
I climbed in his lap as he gripped my ass and pulled my bottom to him. I could feel his hardness
against me and I ached to feel him inside.
I couldn’t deny myself any longer.
“Take me home, Michael. Stay with me tonight.” I didn’t even have to think about it.
I wanted him.
The light touches, commanding kisses, and the feel of his hardness had me wanting more, needing it.
“Mia, I don’t know if that’s a good idea,” he whispered against my lips.
“I want to feel your skin against me. Remind me what it feels like to be loved, Michael. Show me the beauty and make me forget.” I held myself up and stared in his eyes. “Please,” I begged.
His fingers swept against my cheek and I leaned into his touch, closing my eyes. “I’ll do anything you ask,” he said.
