Overview

I had everything I ever wanted—a wife, a kid, with two more on the way. I was living the American dream.

After the babies were born, we hit a rough patch. I did everything to prove my love, to show Suzy that nothing was more important than her. After some work and a lot of time, we found our groove again.

Just when life had evened out, a familiar enemy came back to haunt us. It wasn’t my past that followed us, but my brother’s. When the danger gets too close, I’ll do anything to defend my family. There’s nothing more important than the people I love, and I’ll protect what’s mine—even if it costs me my life.

Family, Love and Honor, those are the thing that Joe covets and protects the most. Nothing tests him more than threatening any of those things in his life. He will do everything in his power to make sure that the one he loves are happy safe and loved. That is what this book is about His love for his family and above all his Suzy. If you loved Joe in the beginning your gonna love him now. He is more than just a man he is a FATHER protecting not only his love but his girls. Yeah girls get you believe it! Karma. Joe doesn't see them as Karma though he sees his girls as his blessings. Funny, sexy and breath taking those are the words I would use to describe this amazing read that gives us more than just Suzy and Joe as always all the brother and Izzy to are there to add more spice and flavor to our lives through their over-protectiveness and their sexiness. Want more? Well, we get to know more about Joe's Parent in this book, more than City would want to know himself. So buckle ladies and get ready for the ride of your lives!

5 star Review Honor Me (Men of Inked #6) by Chelle Bliss This was City and Suzy’s follow up story, but it wouldn’t be a Men of Inked book without the appearance of the rest of the family. I loved this book from start to finish. This book was as wonderfully well written, as previous books I have read from this author. Ms. Bliss brings The Gallo family to life for me and frankly all I want is to be adopted into their family. I love that at the heart of these books is the love of family and what they will do for each other, no matter the cost; even if the cost is the death of a loved one. I laughed, I cried, I yelled out loud and I refused to put Honor Me down. I have to say whilst reading this book my heart stopped a few times. I read this book in nearly one read, I was riveted; I had to know what was going to happen next! As with previous books in the series, Honor Me was an emotional rollercoaster whilst being downright sexy and dirty, in the best possible way at the same time. I love how caring and yet dirty City is with Suzy. He absolutely oozes sex appeal, dominance and control; a real alpha male, one I would most certainly love to meet. The heat and emotions are intense and don’t be surprised if you get burnt as you read. The sex is absolutely scorching but the danger is real. Will they all survive, or will tragedy shatter this close knit family? Actually, I love all of the Gallo family. At times I felt that City and Suzy’s daughter Gigi almost stole the book. She is one funny and feisty young lady. They will certainly have their hands full when she gets older, that’s for sure. Ms. Bliss writes with a depth of character that at times comes right out of no-where and knocks your socks off. The layers of emotions she peels back can at times be heart wrenching, shocking and surprising. This is one of those series that you do not want to see end and I cannot wait for the next book in the series.

It was so easy to fall in love with the Gallo family. I laughed so hard and I cried harder. The suspense was intense and the sadness left a lump in my throat. I felt like I could actually be a part of this family. It was obvious right from the starr how much they all meant to each other. But trouble stiil managed to find them. Suzy and Joe's daughter Gigi had me laughing so hard I almost peed my pants. Lol. She was adorable. Chelle new exactly what to write the story line to portray a small child with a very curious mind. Hilarious. I can't imagine for the life of me what it would feel blike to have a man cherish me the way the Gallo men cherish their wives. Don't get me wrong. I know my husband loves me but we don't have the fun and closness that they all do.I highly recommend this series to everyone.

I was so happy to get another City and Suzy and to see how their family has grown, as well as their relationship. I was not disappointed, we got classic HOT, sexy, out of the park chemistry we’re used to between City and Suzy. But we also got more, they’re relationship has really grown stronger with the addition of Gigi and twins on the way. Chelle Bliss hits on a hard subject in this book with postpartum and how it affects the relationship and family. It was interesting to see how it really affected both Suzy and Joe and where they would go from there. I was so happy that they came out stronger on the other side. There was much more to their story, a bit of drama involving the ALFA PI gang and how they all band together for it. Not only did we get reacquainted with City and Suzy but the rest of the Gallo’s as well. I love this big, crazy, Italian family! I’m not usually a fan of authors flashing forward and writing stories about the children but oh man do I want to see these Gallo children older and the HELL they’ll put their parents through, lol. Hint, hint, Chelle Bliss. If you’re a fan of the Gallo’s then you need to pick up this book.

Chelle does it, yet again! I mean, how does she get them hotter and hotter! I fell in love with City and Suzy in Throttle Me, and loved seeing them grow throughout the series, but, now, having a whole new book to themselves! LOVED IT!!! You'll swoon, there is a good chance you'll cry, and an even better chance you'll message Chelle and cuss her out. Wait, is that just me? Ok. The Gallos are easily, hands down, my favorite literary family. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next. Because, I know, without a doubt, it'll be EPIC!

WOW! Ms. Chelle nailed it again! From the start up to the last, I was hooked. Honor Me is told by City and Suzy. Love love love this book! With the Gallo siblings found their "the one" and their life is doing great, there will be something that will make these characters' life exciting. When a familiar enemy came back to haunt them, their lives will change. What I love about this book is that it's full of surprises, heart-stopping and jaw-dropping scenes! My gawd! I almost had a heart attack because of this book! Loved it!

Chelle Bliss has done it again! Oh, how I've missed the men of Inked! I was expecting a lot from this book, and it did not disappoint. The alpha Gallo men and the bad-assed Gallo women are back in full force in this book! The good-natured sibling rivalry, the drama, the suspense, the fierce protectiveness, and the sexiness that only the Gallos can generate come together to make this one extraordinary book. I honestly never wanted to put it down... and I didn't. I read it all in one sitting, and was disappointed when it ended. This book was exciting and impassioned and romantic and provocative and gripping and completely captivating. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a riveting and mindblowingly sexy read.

Loved it If you are a fan of Chelle's Men of Inked & ALFA series you will not be let down & if you haven't read any of her books you will want to read them too! Love what she wrote about what happens with City & Suzy I even laugh at the part of what their daughter Gigi says. Chelle has written some suspense & drama but I want to write about it don't want to spoil it for you but you won't be let down you will love it. I hope Chelle writes more in the Men of Inked & ALFA series. Recommend this for ages 18 & up.

It's always great to get another look into one of your favorite book family. This short story gave us a little more of City and Suzy. They are so in love and just amazing together. I absolutely love Gigi! The things that kids say and repeat always cracks me up. I would love to read about Gigi as she grows up. (hint, hint) She is definitely a little Izzy in the making. This story gave us a lot of laughs, some scares and drama. The Gallo family was living life and growing, when the past comes looking for payback. But leave it to the Gallo men to do whatever it takes to protect their families at any cost. I love how they all come together, strong as ever to defend each other. Love, love the Gallos!! I would definitely recommend reading all of the Men of Inked books before, just so you know who they are. You will not be disappointed with this series. These are some super hot men! As long as Chelle keeps writing, I will keep reading. So go out and get your copy today!

When I first started this series I had hoped it would never end! Luckily I got my wish and with my top couple from the Men of Inked series. Like all the others before, this book has everything you could ever want in a book. The love, the drama, the angst, the feels. Chelle has a way with words that will pull you in and even if you are one who cries, I'm sure at some point you will. Suzy and City's relationship was always unique and one of a kind. You will see that in Honor Me as well! Honor Me is a top recommendation from me, but you have to have read the others in the series first. If you have done that YOU NEED THIS BOOK RIGHT AWAY!! As the synopsis says, the past is back to haunt them, but what will happen?! All I can say about this book is the feels man, the feels!

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. Ever since first being introduced to Chelle Bliss's books I have salivated, over heated, and even shed a tear or two while reading and absorbing every word that she has written. I along with thousands of other fans fell madly in love with Mr. and Mrs. Gallo and all five of their inked, pierced, loud mouthed, big hearted Italian offspring, from the first word of Throttle Me until the last page of Without Me. Chelle has enticed and seduced us with every foul or passionate word they uttered, the danger they endured, every fight they started or finished, and every Sunday family dinner they consumed. She cut us off at the knees emotionally with this clan and created an unforgettable family that made us feel like we were there for every bite of lasagna, bawdy joke, or lick of delectable flesh. Although I have loved all of her books since in the Alfa PI series and Enshrine, a piece of my heart was still left back with the Gallo family that we would occasionally receive a glimpse of in her newer books. Even though my affections run the deepest for James and Izzy, City and Suzy are there right beside them. So I was beyond thrilled as I am sure all the other Men Of Inked fans were to visit the Gallos again and experience all their pain and joys. Joe "City" Gallo is all heart under all that yummy inked and muscled goodness and it only beats for his family, his beautiful wife Izzy, their daughter, and unborn children on the way. He is quickly realizing that there are many dangers out there that can threaten this beautiful life that he has built and he will protect it at all costs. I loved being back with this motorcycle riding hottie and his complete adoration of his Suzy who he affectionately calls “sugar” all the time. He makes you weak in the knees with his dominance, protectiveness over those he loves, and his ability to rock Suzy's world and always give her what she needs in or out of the bedroom. Seeing him as a husband and father melted my heart and made me love him all the more. Suzy Gallo's body and emotions are ever changing in her state of growing two more Gallos to add to the family tree. Chelle brings her vulnerability to life in such a way that the reader is right there with her through every disparaging thought, shed tear, rediscovery of herself, and whimpered desire for City. To be a part of her journey is breathtaking and empowering and I couldn't help but feel closer to her and want to experience more of this woman who became the “sunshine” of the Gallos after one passionate night in Throttle Me. Chelle Bliss has taken her fans on another emotion filled trip with the Gallos that had me alternating between laughter and tears of happiness from being among their presence again. The Gallo family has grown in every way and will consume even more of your heart while they fight to keep a strong hold on those that they hold near and dear to their heart. I highly recommend for romance readers who want to live, eat, and breathe amazing characters that will set up residence in your heart and will become friends that you have to revisit again and again. Honor Me has all the heat, laughter, and danger that has surrounded them in each book of the Men Of Inked series and you won't want to miss a word of City and Suzy's journey.

Thanks for another chance to visit with the Gallos. It was great to catch up on what everyone was doing. Love the drama, the lovemaking and the family time. Excited for the next book in the series 2 come out

OMG ..... Where to start??? Joe and Suzy are the main characters I'm this story. However, the entire Gallo family is here as well. This starts at the end of the second pregnancy for Size and it isn't the easy one like the first time. Now she is facing the struggles of twins, depression, and everything that can go along with it. Thankfully, she has Joe to help and support her and encourage her to get the help she needs. Of course that isn't all that is in this book. There is the Gallo drama, laughs, and the craziness of this giant, fun-loving family. However, their past comes back into their lives throwing everyone off balance. Then the question becomes, can this amazing family make it through without anything bad happening? Loved this story from start too finish. Personally, I think little Via steals the show!!! She is too funny and like all little kids, hears more than her parents think. If you don't laugh (or in my case giggle snort) at her questions, there is a problem. Once again, a fabulous Gallo story!

I never though I could love the Gallo's anymore than I already did but this book just made me love them even more than I already did. Chelle did an awesome job writing a book about a topic that a lot of us women experience in life and the journey to find ourselves again. City loves Suzy so much and does everything he can for her and was so understanding. I loved him even more after reading this book. Lets not forget that these couples will have you busting out laughing. Chelle did a great job breaking up the serious subject with comedy and then you have suspense and a bit of action to round it all out. If you love Chelle's Men of Inked series than you are really going to love this book. I am so glad that I read this book. I loved how it had a bit of everyone in the family in it and lets not forget the part that had my heart in my throat. UGH. I highly recommend this book to those who've read this series.

Received a copy for an honest review. Chelle Bliss you are amazing!! I can never get enough of City and Suzy! What I love about this series is the feeling that you know the characters. They are not fairytale romances they show not only the beauty of relationships but also the not so pretty parts. Nothing sexier than a bad boy with tattoos doing whatever he needs to protect what's his

Men of Inked is not a series you should start at #6--just FYI. For a lot of the book I was fine--Joey and Suze are already together at the beginning with one little girl and two more on the way. We start out from Joey's POV, and hearing him talk about his family is beyond sweet--just total OMG. A lot of what goes on for the first half is stuff that many people can relate to--the stresses of pregnancy, of dealing with parenting more than one child, postpartum depression and feeling less than desirable after having kids changes your body--you definitely don't have to have read the other books to get where both Suze and Joey are coming from. It's easy to jump right in there with them, rooting for them all the way. Though--there's so many Gallos! I felt like I needed a cheat sheet at times, or maybe just a family tree. Later on there was a lot going on with the rest of the Men of Inked, and since I didn't know them ahead of time it was tricky trying to keep straight who was who and with whom. Then there's a major plot point that happens that goes back to something that went on in another book (or books?) that if you haven't read you'll definitely get their sense of danger and urgency about, but won't fully understand why, since they don't go into a lot of backstory here. It wasn't a huge problem--it didn't detract from my enjoyment of the book overmuch--but I was a bit lost at times. But oh my gosh, all the parts with little Gigi (their daughter) repeating things she's heard her parents say when they thought she was asleep/couldn't hear them? Too, too funny. (And, as a former pre-k teacher; too, too true! They will tell anyone everything. Seriously.) So, final verdict: probably not the series book to start with, but still an enjoyable read. If you've read the other books in the series, though, then this one definitely needs to be on your TBR stat! Rating: 4 stars / B I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

This book was awesome. I fell in love with City and Suzy in Throttle Me and was so excited to read Honor Me. It did not disappoint. Lots of hotness and action. Highly recommended

Oh boy, did I miss City! Chelle Bliss', Honor Me, came just time for my Men of Inked Series fix! City/Joey is still very protective, loving, sexy... Just plain ALPHA! What I loved about Honor Me, is that it dealt with a serious issue, that was relative to the readers. Suzy's feelings, about her pregnancy and body image is a very real issue among many, and I love the way it was written about and addressed. Joey is AMAZING! Love Chelle's writing. It's always a combination of fun, sex, suspense, and FAMILY! There's nothing like a Gallo event! LOVED HONOR ME. You will too.

Any book that brings City (aka Joe Gallo) and Suzy back to me is pretty damn awesome in my mind. Chelle Bliss brings them back in a BIG BIG way. Things have moved forward for the Gallo’s and they have all settled into the routine of family life. Oh they are still up to their ball-busting antics that had me laughing out loud. This book centered on City and Suzy, but you get a healthy dose of all the Gallo’s in “Honor Me” and even the men from ALFA PI. If you thought that married life and a couple of kids would slow the passion that is Joe and Suzy have then you are crazy! Chelle tackled some very real subject matter and she has always done it with a finesse that brings attention to the issues, but doesn’t ever over do it. I could feel the love and even the aches of family life. You get the grit, the fear, and the true devotion that Joe has for his wife Suzy. A shout out to GiGi, their oldest daughter, she had me snickering at the many innocent, YET TOTALLY NOT, questions and observations she made of her parents. Then there is Ma and Pop, Joe’s parents, yeah you had to know these hot alphas picked up a thing or two from their parents. There is a danger lurking around the corner that threatens to rip the Gallo family to shreds. A real heart attack moment, but you will need to read because there are NO SPOILERS. When I read to a certain point I was all ready to message the author and get all shouty caps, “YOU CAN’T DO THIS TO ME!” If you have read the series then I am sure you will be right along there with me. Trust me this book will hold you and not let you up until the words “The” and “End” appear. Ms. Bliss can write the hot alpha male and the hot alpha Dads that will have you swooning and wishing for a Gallo man of your very own. I just love this series and wouldn’t complain AT ALL if there were a book seven. 5 HOT ALPHA STARS!

5 Star Review I'm struggling to put pen to paper and explain just how great this book is. I have been a fan of the Gallo's since I read the first book in the Men of Ink series but I have to say this book is amongst the best if not the best in the series. City and Suzie are back and although this is a story centered around them all of the Gallo's are back, well what else would you expect from Ms Bliss. This was one emotional ride and there were tears and laughter along the way but as always we got to see just how devoted and loyal this family is to each other and once again got another 5 star read from Chelle Bliss.

Positively Decadent! The return of City and Suzy is finally in our hands. This book was a stroke of pure genius! City and Suzy were without a doubt my favorite couple from the Men of Inked Series and I had my questions as to how they could get any better. Chelle Bliss answers those questions with this spectacular book that takes us on a continued journey showing us how amazing happily-ever-after is, even when the ups and downs of life intrude on that happiness. As we get into the day to day lives of City and Suzy...already parents to one child and another baby on the way, the heartfelt emotion that we feel as they enjoy being parents and then having another baby is pure magic. But Suzy has so many feelings and thoughts that are starting to play havoc in her life and we see these manifest in her relationship with City. How this couple handles this is moving and touching. I literally felt like I was part of the journey. City is an amazing husband and father and I fell in love with him all over again in this book. He is the man in which all men should be modeled after. There are lots of sexy times and their chemistry still burns hotter than ever, with an added element to the eroticism of it that makes it ten times sweeter and deeper. We also get to re-visit the lives of the other Gallo family members. I seriously want to be a part of this clan. They are such a close family that fight as hard as they love. There are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments in this book....Oh LORD!!!! I was dying a few times I just couldn't stop laughing. We have a fantastic plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat and I'm not going to lie.... Ms. Bliss produces of a moment of sheer torture in this book that questioned my loyalty to her as a reader.....then she proved in the next moment that she is an author to be reckoned with and firmly placed herself on my top 10 Favorite Authors of All Time list. Very few people can pull off the type of work she did in this book...showing that the fairy tail doesn't end after you fall in love and get married. That the true Fairy Tale is what happens after the marriage, when real life begins and the story gets told. 5 Stars

WOW! That was my reaction finishing this book. Another home run from Chelle Bliss. I couldn't wait for this book to hit Amazon & I was NOT disappointed! I love City & Suzy but what I love about Ms. Bliss' books is we get to have a taste of all the Gallo's & friends! I laughed out loud so many times with this one! The labor scene was hilarious! I could just picture City & Suzy in that moment! There were a lot of those moments that I loved & some that brought me to tears! At one point I was crying & silently begging the pages to not let me be reading what I was reading! I wanted to scream & I just may have done that! Ms. Bliss did an awesome job creating a book jam packed with suspense, love, steam, humor, angst & did I mention suspense?? I would highly recommend this series & book! Looking forward to the next!
