Flame by Chelle Bliss Book Summary

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.

- Be prepared to laugh out loud!5 star

Amazing book! Can’t wait for the second one

- More Gallo Hotness!!!5 star

Chelle Bliss, you have done it once again.... another 5 star Gallo story! Gigi and Pike will give you all the feels. Gigi is all fire and sass and Pike is a total alpha male gentleman. It’s a must read and listen you will NOT be disappointed in the start of the next Gallo generation!!!

- Amazing5 star

I absolutely loved this book! Gigi is a strong female and Pike is sexy as sin, what more could you ask for. This is a must read if you love the Gallos.

- Excellent audiobook and hard copy5 star

Well done audiobook, dual narrators, both are excellent. I started this book and thought “oh, this is just another of the same ol’ thing”. Let me also say I had to revise that thought. WOW! It is the same but not! Does that make sense? No? Well, pick up this book and enjoy. Gigi and Pike get the whole Gallo group involved in this roundhouse biker romp. There is the signature steam, romance and mystery. This does end on a bit of a cliffhanger, but worth the read.

- Terrific Gallo story in a new series!4 star

Fabulous cover! 😍🔥I can't believe that Joey (City) and Suzy's little girl is all grown up! What a fantastic woman she is! Smart, sassy, beautiful, sexy and a baller buster just like her Aunt Izzy. Gigi is just what you would expect as the first born of her fabulous parents. She's got talent like her hunky Dad, the sweetness (sometimes) like her lovely Mom and the snarky comebacks just like her awesome Aunt. If you've read the first series with these outstanding characters you know what I'm talking about. And now Gigi's joining the family business as a tattooist after finishing college. And who shows up on her first day? Yep, the sexy stud biker (her gal pals nickname Flame cuz he's smoking hot) she spent a weekend with between the sheets during Spring Break a year ago. Sizzling chemistry and hot sex. Poor Pike! He thinks he finally has his dream job at Inked, the Gallos famous tattoo shop, until his first day turns into a challenge when he runs into the girl from his weekend sheet fest. Gigi's not exactly happy having her fling around her family and Pike just wants to keep his job. They try to stay away from each other but their chemistry is too hot. I loved Pike. He's a sexy hunk with a not so great family, lots of talent and a determination to get what he wants. He is yummy with his gorgeous eyes, his sweet southern manners and his way around a woman body especially Gigi's. Trying to hide their feelings from the family is challenging with protective Daddy and the Uncles. Just when things get on track danger appears from Pike's past and the Uncles jump in to fight the battles and keep everyone safe. Ends in a cliffhanger just when the heat gets going. Ugh! I'm ready for the next story. Chelle Bliss has given us another spectacular Gallo story that's wonderfully written with an incredible cast of characters and a dream couple in Gigi and Pike. I love catching up with the terrific Gallo family and friends. This is a terrific start to a new Gallo series with lots of fantastic secondary characters for future stories. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC.

- Gigi & Pike are amazing5 star

Gigi and Pike...the title for this book is perfect for them. Gigi is Izzy 2.0 and I love her. These two were absolutely perfect for each other. I loved how Gigi didn’t let the craziness going on get to her. She might have been young but she knew what she wanted. Pike was just like all the other Inked men, very protective and willing to do anything to keep Gigi safe. He didn’t let the overbearing Gallo men get to him either. It was so fantastic to see all the characters from the Inked series back again and putting their two cents in whether it was wanted or not. I loved how Joe was with Gigi...she’s his baby girl after all. I can’t wait to get Burn. Definitely need to see how this turns out.

- Loved5 star

WOW, Chelle Bliss done it again. Not only have I read the ebook but I have listened to the audio as well. I think both narrators did an amazing job. But let me say that Jason Clarke’s voice has this deep dark sexy husky tone that makes your insides quiver. Oh my lands it can make you melt in your seat. Fanning myself here. I have always loved Gigi in the previous books. She like all Gallo women had this sassy attitude that I just love. She is a young woman now with a bright future a head of her. Does not help that her mother and father still see this little girl though. Pike was the sexy tat guy that road a bike and had seen a lot of things. A bet the did not think that the girl he took back to his room with him would turn his world upside down. He could not help but fall in love with her spit fire attitude and he could not get her out of his head. I almost laughed the way Gigi and Pike met up again. Both were surprised and to top if off he would learn how protective her family really was. This will go south pretty quick and Pike and Gigi will find danger at their door. Pike will really get to see what a family is all about. Love the chemistry that was between these two. Things will get hot and heavy and I love how much Gigi keeps Pike on his toes. My heart truly broke for Pike. When the story of his past started unfolding I heart broke more and more for him. He truly had a sad childhood. Thank god for his grandmother. This was a great story though the ending did have me screaming at the author the words “REALLY!”. I am thinking she needs to get busy writing the next book..LOL

- Felt like coming home all over again5 star

This book!!!! 😍😍😍 It’s always amazing coming back home to the Gallos & this new generation is sure to be EPIC. This story keeps you turning the pages, leaves you in a bit of “oh no and what the heck!” But in the absolute best way! Pike and Gigi have chemistry just like City and Susie did and lemme tell you it’s off the charts fire!!! I can’t wait for the next book! Like omg!!!! 5 stars! I’d give 10 if I could 🔥❤️🔥❤️🔥❤️🔥

- The Hottest Flame5 star

My excitement for this book is indescribable. If you’ve read the original Men of Inked series, you know Gigi is the daughter of City (Joe) and Suzy Gallo from Throttle Me. After sneaking off to Daytona, Gigi meets Pike, who takes her to his hotel room from the bar. They spend a week together, mostly between the sheet, before Gigi disappears. They meet up again in the most happenstance of ways, and things only get better from there. If you think Joe was protective before, wait until you see his baby girl all grown up and dating! To only give Gigi and Pike’s story five stars is an injustice! But alas, that’s as high as I can go.. Flame is a definite 10 star read, and obviously on my top favorite reads of this year.

- “I could spend more than one night staring into her big blue eyes.”5 star

The first book I ever read by Chelle Bliss was “Throttle Me.” I fell in love with City and Suzy, and it has always been one of my favorites. I was ecstatic to learn that she was writing a new series, with the first book featuring their daughter, Gigi. I read “Flame” during a long car ride and I am glad I was able to devote all of my time to this masterpiece. Gigi’s feistiness reminded me of Suzy and Pike is a carbon copy of City. Gigi was determined to meet Pike when she first saw him and she had no qualms about walking right up to him and letting him know she was interested. I was drawn into the curiosity they had for each other and I applauded Pike’s restraint when it came to taking his time get Gigi. The intensity of their connection never lessened and when they were reunited, it was like they had never been apart. The Gallo family and the bond they have with each other is one of the reasons I love this series so much. To them, family is everything, and you always have someone to protect you, listen to you and a place to call home. Pike found this with Gigi, and it was magical, deeply personal and life changing. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for Pike and Gigi in “Burn”, part two of their love story.

- All sorts of awesomeness going on!!!5 star

Oh my goodness, I can’t even express how much I loved this book!! Always love a book with the Gallos in it (I mean, how can you not), but this was extra with Gigi (City & Suzy’s oldest daughter) being grown up makes it even more special. Gigi is such a spitfire, filled with sass & attitude, beauty & talent. When we first meet her, she’s being a bit of a rebel, being somewhere she shouldn’t be. And meeting a luscious biker named Pike. After a very hot, sexy & memorable week, they part ways. Jump to 15 months later, and two new artists are starting at Inked. Can you guess who? Gigi,,,and Pike. An interesting, and to them, shocking, turn of events. And here is where I’m gonna leave you to find the rest out on your own, because lots of things happen & I won’t ruin it for you. But I will say there’s lots of heat, there’s lots of action, there’s laughs, and stress. This book has it all. Completely loved it!!! And cannot wait for the next one!!!

- Thank you4 star

- A terrific, hot read!5 star

A great spin off, revisiting the Gallo family and their relationships. Spring break has Gigi Gallo going to Daytona Beach for a bit of fun and she meets Pike. The drinks are plenty and the chemistry between them is explosive. The time passes and Gigi finishes college, then unexpectedly their lives are thrown together again. It becomes an awkward situation. They try to forget their past encounter, even ignoring each other, but some are noticing something is going on. Ok. They are not fooling anyone, I loved Gigi. Nice to see everyone again. And the family love was paramount, good luck Pike. Great tension and the cliffhanger made me gasp. Yep I’ve gotta have Book #2, it’s killing me!

- Hot5 star

Absolutely smoking. I could not put this book down. Perfect read. Can not wait for book 2.

- Loved it5 star

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 ignite5 star

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. A story that not only has you on the edge of your seat with twists, turns and so many emotions, but steals your heart too. As a long standing lover of the Men Of Inked series, you will see that the saying a daughter will fall in love with a man like her dad fits Gigi perfectly as Pike reminds us of Joe “City” Gallo. As these two battle Pike’s dark family issues, revelations will come to light, strength will be required and the good old bond and loyalty of the Gallo family will come out to play. Like a moth drawn to a flame, their story will pull you in and have you reaching that last page not knowing if you could have ever been prepared. If it is passion, drama, sass and sexy alpha heroes that light you up, then this one is going to set you on fire.

- Hot as [email protected]5 star

Flame by chelle bliss Review by Amanda a I was giving an opportunity to read fame to give and honest review, well firstly never say no to a chelle bliss they are smoking hot.. buffed up tattooed up men and the next generations of gallos are not different well maybe little as it’s Gigi city and Suzies oldest daughter still has a mouth on her and she wasn’t afraid to use it when it came to pike. Fame leaves you sitting on your edge of your seat or bed wanting to know what happens next. when pike needs helps she goes to the only person that she knows that can help Uncle James. Was that a mistake as her dad city Isn’t a fan of pike but still keeps them save together. Fame is a must read. You will not be disappointed. Chelle you have only been one of my favourite authors and that will never change you keep you keep smashing these books outta the park.

- Flaming Brilliant5 star

OMG, I feel like on hanging on a cliffs edge 😲 I LOVE PIKE, he is everything a member of the Gallo’s family needs to be to be a member of the family/gang 😂 Gigi is a spitfire like all good Gallo women, fantastic story and I can NOT wait for the second book to be released. And I’m looking forward to the audiobook release, it’s going to be amazing.

- Loved this couple5 star

I really loved this book. It was brilliant to go back to the Gallo's and this story had a very fresh feel to it. It's full of everything you would expect from a Chelle Bliss story. It's got love and laughter, passion and heat, drama and unexpected moments. Gigi is just like Izzy, shes heat and fire with an attitude bigger than she is. Shes a good person though, sweet and caring. I think she's very much a mix of Izzy and Suzy. She's a daddy's girl and her scenes with Joe near the end we're some of my favourites. Pike was just perfect. He's everything you want in a strong alpha biker badass with a super soft side that just craves that family connection. He's got the fire needed to keep hold of Gigi and allow her to flourish rather than try and hold her back. I think he's my new favourite from this series. The story itself was interesting from the start, lots of page time catching up with previous characters although the whole story was set around Gigi and Pike. I read it very quickly and I'm really looking forward to the rest of their story. The ending was brilliant!
