After spending years of his life in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, Nevin Walsh doesn’t know where he fits in anymore.
But then, his brother’s best friend, Luna Gallo, makes it her personal mission to help him settle back into his newfound freedom. He should say no. Turn her away. But there’s something about the woman who radiates sunshine that makes her impossible to ignore. And the harder he pushes her away, the harder she comes.
And what starts off as an unwanted friendship turns into something he never expects. But can Nevin let go of the hurt from his past to allow himself happiness in his future?

  • Okay

    By MissyRNNC
    These book was not as good as the others. The characters were likable. But the story drags on without going anywhere.

  • Good book

    By Deelmq
    This is a good read. I liked the other books in this series better but it’s still a good read.
  • Wonderful, love the Gallo family

    By Renavoo
    Another wonderful entry into the Gallo family series. They are a little crass, a little crazy, but oh so fun and crazy. This story follows Luna and Nevin. Luna was awesome- sunshine but take no prisoners- there were multiple times throughout the book where she took care of herself when faced with really awful situations and I laughed in glee as she showed up the men who refused to accept "no". Ah, I really wished I had her gumption in real life! Nevin was the grump to her sunshine and I love grumpy sunshine romances so that was fantastic. I have to admit that I didn't see the connection initially but after a while, their connection built so well and really made an impression. These stories are short, full of humor and love and family. So great to get back into this family!
  • Not her best

    I love chelle bliss books especially the heatwave but this was a total miss…there wasn’t any heat to it. She did acknowledge it in the afterword though. But I am still looking forward till the next book.

    I freaking love love this couple Chelle did amazing job on this couple Luna has always been so reckless and Nevin is so mad about his loss of his life and at Ian for turning his self in . they both are so guarded and scared to be hurt with more heartache. This is a must read love the funny banter between the two and the sexual chemistry they are fighting that captivated me from the first page with emotional rollercoaster and funny characters. It's a such sweet intriguing and interesting story that gets you from the first page and how they fall for one another. I love how honest, vulnerable they are and the intimacy that these characters bring to the table this is a must read don’t let yourself down and miss this great book . I couldn't put this book down. As soon as I start reading Scorch it's like I am back home with the Gallo family 🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡 I love the entire Gallo saga can’t get enough I always crave more and more can’t wait for the next book in the series such amazing fun loving family series of stories .

  • Loved!!

    5 stars 2.5/5 spice - pops at 65% Luna Gallo and Nevin Walsh's book is another amazing addition to the Heatwave series! Luna and Nevin were both intriguing characters and their story was a page-turner for me! It was entertaining and just heartwarming to be back with the Gallo family again. Luna is a wild child and she finds herself out of sorts when her best friend, Ian Walsh goes away. Ian has tasked both Luna and his brother Nevin to look out for one another. I felt like Nevin's angst, being grumpy, wanting space etc was a perfect representation of someone who just got out of prison. The relationship came together quickly but started from little enemies to lovers. Nevin was just a sweetheart once he got himself sorted out a little. I adored how he came around to her family and really saw how "home" isn't always blood. It made my heart happy to see so much of the Gallo family throughout the story and the family dinner with Bear and City made me laugh I feel like Scorch could be read as a standalone but seriously these cousins and the Gallo Family are goals and one of my all-time favorite fictional families.
  • Loved this book!

    By Yoli277
    Yay! The Gallo gang is back and Chelle Bliss absolutely killed it with Scorch (Men Of Inked: Heatwave #10). I was highly anticipating Luna Gallo’s book and Chelle Bliss gave me so much more than I expected. Luna is as saucy and feisty as ever especially when she makes it her mission to befriend her brother in law’s brother, Nevin Walsh after he’s been released from prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Life hasn’t always been kind to Nevin therefore, he’s extremely guarded when it comes to letting people in. He certainly doesn’t make it easy for Luna however, I’m glad she stands her ground and never gives up on him. Nevin and Luna’s unlikely friendship, their connection and chemistry develops very nicely throughout the book which makes for a wonderful story. Scorch is an emotional, heart warming and feel good book with a healthy side of Gallo humor and charm. I adored everything about this book.
