  • This was great!

    I think was one of my favorite out of all the the series so far! I’m a big fan of MMA fighter books and this was great! I loved Michael’s story. I can’t wait to start the next series of the gallo kids. I really enjoyed all the men of inked books about each Gallo child but this one was by far my favorite, the way Michael and Mia come to meet and all the ways he goes about trying to get her attention and try to get her to go out with him, this was truly a great read! I can’t wait to start the next series about all the little gallo kids.
  • Ok...

    Why did Michael have to give up what he loved? I understood Mia's concerns but I just did not see him stopping fighting cold when he had all of this passion for fighting and dedication for the sport. I did see him retiring somewhere down the line but it came from left field him just dropping MMA.

    I just keep falling more in love with the Gallo family. Hook me was Michael's turn to shine. And oh we weren't disappointed. Michael also works at Inked with his family but he's also an MMA fighter. That just makes him even more yummier and just sexy as hell. The lucky lady that steals his heart is Mia. She's a doctor that he meets while at the hospital one day. She shots him down the first time, but when they meet later on at the gym, the chemistry can't be denied. They are just too cute together! There is a crazy person named Tammy that almost ruins everything, but thankfully Michael knows what he wants and fights hard to get Mia back. Besides that, they have an amazing relationship. Oh and how could I forget Mrs. Gallo? She always has me laughing with how much she's pushing for little grand babies!! Gotta love her! Chelle Bliss really knows how to draw you into a story and make you fall in love with the characters. I seriously love love LOVE this series and can't wait to read more from the Gallo family!
  • A wonderful read

    Chelle Bliss', "Hook Me : Men of Inked Series, Book 2" is the story of Michael Gallo, part owner and piercing artist of the family owned tattoo shop, INKED. Although he and his family do extremely well with the business, his real passion is MMA fighting. He eats, sleeps, and breathes being in the ring. It's his number one love, until he meets Dr. Mia Greco. Mia is a workaholic, who puts all of her time into helping those who cannot help themselves. Her heart bleeds for her patients. All of her spare time goes into helping the sick and uninsured in an inner city, hole in the wall, walk in clinic, where her best is just not good enough to keep it afloat. After a few chance encounters and an amazingly romantic first date. Michael and Mia fall for each other. "Hook Me" is Michael's story. I initially met Michael in "Throttle Me", book one. He was, to me, City's sarcastic brother, who would like to break his balls from time to time. In "Hook Me" you really get to know Michael Gallo. He has this intimidating tough guy exterior, but a sensitive, warm interior. He, is what I call a "gentle giant". However, sensitive and warm do not equal weak or meek. He knows exactly what he possesses . He's just the right amount of cockiness, roughness, and arrogance. In the bedroom he showed up and showed out. His interactions with Mia were hot, to say the least. I loved the little games they'd played with each other, the built up anticipation, and the cocky, dirty talk exchanged between the two. As far as a relationship. Michael saw right through Mia and broke down all of her defensive walls. Mia gave a good face and buried herself in work to shield herself from pain and hurt. There were aspects of her primary job in the hospital ER, that caused her pain and sometimes feeling helpless. This is why she spent her spare time, engrossed in making a difference at the clinic. She's not one to open up, so when "the shoe drops" and she gets some disappointing news about Michael, she feels it is a trust betrayed, What can I say? Chelle Bliss does it again.This book was read from beginning to end in one sitting. Because I read "Throttle Me", I initially thought, that I would compare to Michael to City, but "Hook Me" and Michael's story stand apart. Just like real siblings, who may share the same principles, their personalities are completely different. (BTW, it was great to catch up with City and Suzy!) This was brilliantly written. Each and every character was written and created with so much depth and they are relatable. We interact with people with traits like Michael, Izzy, and Mama Gallo on daily basis. In true Bliss fashion, Chelle sets the stage for the next installment of the Gallo family story. I cannot for the next one :-) Until then, I shall bask in the wonder of "Hook Me: Men of Inked Series, Book 2" a 5 STAR READ!!!!!
