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.

Hook Me - Excerpt

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.

Stars: 5

Oh My Gosh!!!! Another Ahhh-Mazing book from Chelle Bliss. When I thought there wasn't ever going to be another Gallo to make my heart go pitter patter like City and then Michael... wow is all I can say.
This is an adult fiction, contemporary romance. I most defiantly recommend this book but, you must read the first book in order to get the full Gallo brothers effect... yes this can be read as a stand alone but why would you want to? This does contain some sexy time so readers beware. This book is one I could not put down, it had me laughing, cussing, cheering... yes an roller coaster of emotions. I admire the connection that the Gallo family have, their spunk also. I love Mia's determination to helping others and her compassion towards her patients. A must read, get ready for the Gallo Bother number two... yum.

This is the story about Michael, a pro fighter and a piercer at the family owned business Inked. He dedicates his time now to working out, preparing for the upcoming UFC title he hopes to win and he is well on his way. He does not have time for anything else, well that is what he thought until a certain doctor gave him the brush off. He loves a challenge. 

Dr. Mia Greco is caught up in her life between the emergency room and the clinic. She has a hard time dealing with getting enough sleep, much less worry about her love life. Well that is what she is still trying to make herself believe after her chance encounter with Mr Muscles... umm Gallo. Not to mention he doesn't understand the word no to well, luckily for her. But she feels there is something Michael is keeping from her, and soon enough the truth will come out, either way someone will get hurt.

Favorite passages:

"It felt like a game of cat and mouse."
"My mom said I raided the medicine cabinet to fix my Cabbage Patch kids as a little girl."
"Each time I lost someone, a small piece of my heart died." <3
"I wanted to wear sandals all year round, feel the sunshine on my face, and watch the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico from my beachfront home."
"I straightened my hair; the humidity in Florida wrecked havoc on my long brown locks, before starting my makeup."
"We could go without speaking for weeks and pick up right where we left off."
"It's my lotion. Vanilla Bean Noel."
"Dumbfounded and in a fog by his kiss, I stood there like an idiot with a grin on my face."
"I looked up at my ma, surprised she hadn't yelled at us for our language, but she was wrapped up in grandbaby world."
"Mia had become my new addiction."
"My big mouth sister should be an undercover cop."
"I loved my mom. She was my first love."
"Maybe you can get one or those scooters all the old bast**** use." (some might find the author's word choice offending)
"I know Ma told you you're not allowed to hit girls, but that rule doesn't apply to me."
"You have a big heart under that Superman exterior, Michael."
"Not in this damn family - to many cocks for it to be equal."

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?
