A box set and a horseman is what I have in store for you this week! Bare with me, my head is starting to get cloudy. While others are worried about the coronavirus, I think I'm getting a stomach bug. Makes no sense because I've been disinfecting things all week both at home and at work, you'd think I'd have enough in my system. LOL Oh, well. I'll survive.
Now, onto the books!
First off I have the Men of Inked Vol. 1 by Chelle Bliss. Hot reads! It shows three books, but you actually get a novella in there as well as a teaser for the fourth book. I truly enjoyed each story but Resist Me was probably my favorite out of the batch.
Join the Gallo siblings as their lives are forever turned upside down by irresistible passion and unexpected love.
This box set contains three full-length novels — Throttle Me, Hook Me, and Resist Me -- plus a bonus novella -- Throttled
Book 1: Throttle Me
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?
Book 2: Hook Me
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.
Book 2.25: Throttled
She’s about to become his – Mrs. Joseph Gallo. All she wants is to be his, but his possessiveness days before the wedding has her questioning the reality of a happily ever after. He’s not easy. He’s territorial and doesn’t share well with others. City’s staking his claim, making Suzy his forever. Their future teeters precariously on the cliff of matrimonial bliss. Will their love survive his alpha nature or will it all unravel before she can say ‘I do’?
Book 3: Resist Me
Izzy Gallo has never been described as a member of the weaker sex. She's a woman who doesn't take sh*t from anyone. Growing up with four olderoverprotective brothers has hardened her, making her a force to be reckoned with.
Against the wishes of her two brothers, Joe and Mike, Izzy takes a weekend trip to Bike Week in Daytona, turning her world upside down.
Over her head, in a world she doesn't understand, there's only one man who can save her.
James Caldo has dedicated his life to protect and serve as a member of the DEA. He's cocky, overbearing, and doesn't take no for an answer — the Gallo men have nothing on him.
When their paths cross, James makes Izzy question everything she believes about completely surrendering to the opposite sex.
Does James have what it takes to overpower the headstrong Izzy, capturing her heart forever?
Next I have Pestilence by Laura Thalassa. This was recommended to me by a friend and I'm glad she did. It is an incredibly interesting read and kind of eye opening, especially with what is going on in the world at the moment. I'm looking forward to diving into War next.
They came to earth—Pestilence, War, Famine, Death—four horsemen riding their screaming steeds, racing to the corners of the world. Four horsemen with the power to destroy all of humanity. They came to earth, and they came to end us all.
When Pestilence comes for Sara Burn’s town, one thing is certain: everyone she knows and loves is marked for death. Unless, of course, the angelic-looking horseman is stopped, which is exactly what Sara has in mind when she shoots the unholy beast off his steed.
Too bad no one told her Pestilence can’t be killed.
Now the horseman, very much alive and very pissed off, has taken her prisoner, and he’s eager to make her suffer. Only, the longer she’s with him, the more uncertain she is about his true feelings towards her … and hers towards him.
And now, well, Sara might still be able to save the world, but in order to do so, she'll have to sacrifice her heart in the process.
That's all I have for you this week. I hope you have a healing weekend if something is ailing you. I know I'm going to take it easy with a quick trip to the library and then bake a cake. What better way to rest for the weekend than to cuddle up and read? That's my only other plans.
See you Monday.
