Throttle Me (Men of Inked #1) by Chelle Bliss

Throttle Me

Amazon Description: 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?


Chelle Bliss is a new to me author. I am so happy I came across this book on Amazon. The cover drew my attention and then after reading the Amazon description, I knew I was done for. I was hooked from the first page until the last and every page in between.

Like the description says, Suzy is a control freak. City comes to Suzy’s rescue after her car breaks down when she’s heading home after a night out with Sophia. City ends up having one of his buddies tow her car and fix it while he ends up taking her home, to his place. Thinking it’s a one time thing, they have fun. Only, it turns out to not be a one time thing. Neither of them can get the other out of their heads. Only, Suzy doesn’t think City fits into her plans so she tries to break things off with him.

She goes out with a co-worker, Derek, and he gets a little grabby after she has a few drinks and wants to go home. City had been in the bar and luckily saw them leaving, with her being a little unsteady. He pulls Derek off of her and pounds him before he takes her home and they have a heart to heart discussion….one of several they have.


Like I said above, I was hooked from beginning to end. There are a few grammatical errors with either extra words or missing words but they are far and few between and doesn’t detract from the story any. These characters are the most realistic I’ve read about in a long time. While some others were realistic, they were still pushing the boundaries of being unrealistic. Not Suzy, Sophia, City or any of the other characters in the story. Chelle Bliss really thought all the characters out and didn’t overdo them and gave each of them their own personalities. My favorite character is City. He’s just what Suzy needs and he doesn’t let her sabotage herself or them.

I can’t wait to get a hold of the rest of the books in this series and to see how the others turn out. I like series’ where there are multiple books and each book is based on a different character/family member.
