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?

This is the first book in the Men of Inked Series.

“Throttle Me” is the story of Suzy, a twenty-something, math teacher, with a less than interesting love life and check list of prerequisites for a potential life partner. Even though she’s quite the control freak, she yearns and fantasizes about someday having the sexual experiences that she only reads about in erotica novels.  Suzy’s life changes, the moment her car breaks down on a dark, desolate road  and a tall, dark, handsome, tattoo-clad biker by the name of City, comes to her rescue, in more ways than one. City, owner of Inked (a tattoo shop), is out for a ride on his Harley-Davidson Fat Boy, and to meet up with the guys at the local hole-in-a-wall bar, when he rides past a beautiful, blonde bombshell and damsel in distress on the side of the road. After a couple of sweet martinis and careful conversation, City surmised that Suzy was good girl, with a hidden, raw sexuality that he, not only wanted to explore, but also introduce her to. Neither one of them was looking to fall in love in the process…. Once again, Chelle Bliss, has managed to “intrigue me” and “mesmerize me” with her writing.  From the moment that I began reading “Throttle Me” I could not put it down. I managed to read 75% of it in one sitting and the only reason why I didn't complete it at that time, was because I had to make myself put it down for the sake of sleep. I knew from the teasers of “Throttle Me” that I was going to love me some City. And let me tell you, City, does not disappoint. He is the quintessential alpha male. He is bold, cocky, arrogant, handsome, long, thick, and satisfying with just the right amount of jealousy. He wants nothing but to please and to protect Suzy. He wants to mold her and dominate her at the same time. As much as City wants to pull out the lasciviousness that he knows Suzy possesses, he also can appreciate that she is a lady.  She’s soft. She’s sweet and she’s all his. I love the moments when he would reassure Suzy. He could see right through her and all of her insecurities and he knew just how to make her feel comfortable and at ease with herself. I loved when he called her Suzette. It’s so much sexier than Suzy. There were parts of “Throttle Me” that just made me speak out loud to the characters. Mainly Suzy, she did nothing but get in her own way. Questioning the chemistry between her and City, attempting to go out with “Mr. Pickle”, and doubting that whether or not a relationship with him would ever last. Sometimes things just seemed to be too good to be true, and she had major doubts. When it came to City, he was not at all what she initially expected (from a relationship), but he proves to be all she ever wanted.  Suzy’s character originated in Chelle Bliss’ first novel, “Untangle Me”. In “Untangle Me”, Suzy is the best friend and roommate of Sophia. Sophia, and her fiancé Kayden, make a few cameos in “Throttle Me”. Having read both “Untangle Me” and “Kayden: The Past” (both of the Love At Last Series), it’s great to catch up with these two characters and there’s just enough mentioned about their bond to evoke interest in reading both books from that series. I am not sure if this was done intentionally, but it’s brilliant. THIS AND ALL OF CHELLE BLISS’ BOOKS ARE STAND ALONE NOVELS, but you get a better appreciation for the characters when you read all of the books.  I gave “Throttle Me” 5 (five) stars. I absolutely loved this book. Chelle’s characters with their insecurities, hang ups, situations, relationships are realistic and relatable. How many of us know a Suzy or are a Suzy?  How many of us of ladies yearn to be “sweet in the streets and whore between the sheets”? This book is for those who can relate or know about the monotony of the everyday, but then getting swept off of your feet, sexually, and romantically by a tenacious and audacious lover. THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU!

First of all this book is a BAD knockoff of another author's series! This same plot has already been written by another author who is actually on the fourth book of her series. It is so wrong to steal someone Else's work I do not know how someone can live with doing that to another person. Here is a few of the many similarities in the series. 1) A family of tattooed brother's who work in their families tattoo parlor. 2) The first brother fall's for the bookworm 3) The first brother just so happens to have a piercing on his private part and a nipple piercing. 4) His High School Sweetheart dies the only girl he every loved which causes him to be a bed hopper 5) He hides from the girl that he is actually rich because his family inherited money from their family in Italy. 6) Both Girls can't dance 7) The other series is called Men of____ These are just a few of the similarities. And let me remind you that The other author's first book come out in 2013. So as you can see just the similarities I have listed here is enough for me to say on good faith that this story has been stolen from the other author. This is WRONG,WRONG,WRONG!!!!!! An author goes and puts their whole heart in working on a series to only have it stolen from someone else. You should be ashamed!!!!!

This could have been a great book, start to a series... but author could not deliver. The girl becomes annoying and the guy has to keep saving her from almost rapes, 3 times in 260 pgs! It seemed like the author got stuck with where to take the characters so she just kept repeating scenarios and charact thiughts and ideas. Totally bummed by this purchase.

My Review: 5.0 Star Review - Throttle Me If you have read Chelle's Love At Last Series you have already met Suzy. Suzy knows what she wants out of life. A (dare I say it?) boring man with a stable job. One that does not really bring out her wild side. City is s*x on a stick. Tattoos, piercings and a motorcycle. You know total bad boy. Exactly what Suzy needs to get her wild side to come out and play. He is as far from what Suzy is looking for as you can get. But can she stay away from him? No freaking way. Can they make it work? You will have to grab the book and find out. Chelle has a wicked sense of humor that you can hear coming across the pages. Love her writing style and so happy she pulled Kayden and Sophia.

Some of the details really bothered me. The fact they kept mentioning about Suzy being OCD, yet there were no signs of that condition writen into her personality. Real victims of OCD do not behave or act the way she did. The other detail that irrated me was the way Suzy and her freind Sophia talked to each other. I am a young highschool teacher, and I can tell you although we d talk about some of the things they discussed, we never would use those terms they used especially at the school and expect to stay employed!

This is an Amazing Must read. Chelle Bliss is an author I have not read before. OMG what have I missed out on. There is a lot of books out there about bikers and tattoo's and once you've read one, some of them read a lot like the others. It takes someone special to write a book that stands out from the rest. And Chelle Bliss is that author.  I have read plenty of books about bikers and tattoos and I am sure like most people you have your favourite author for each particular genre. I have my favourite authors(mentioning no names) for particular genres that do it for me and who I hold high above any other genre of the same. I have added Chelle Bliss to that list of one of my favourite author's to read. I can't wait to read more of this Men of Inked series. Girls, This book contains a Hot Alpha Man in the form of Joseph Gallo or City to his friends. This guy is so hot you just want to drink him in. Suzy is a teacher and on her way home one night when her car breaks down in the middle of no where. She has no cell phone service and no way of knows which way is the right direction to head.  City is on his bike on his way to meet with friends in the local bar. When he spots someone broken down.  They both have baggage from the past, but will they be able to get past that.  I loved this book. It's amazing. I loved the pace it enthrals you from the very beginning. It is beautifully written. There is not one thing I didn't like or thought didn't fit. I love The characters.  I loved Suzy's character she is someone who you read about and can pick out someone you know who fits her character. She's strong, independent, but underneath she's vulnerable. And City, well what can I say.... I hope that if I ever break down I have a City coming to my rescue. he's hot, sexy and an alpha.  Chelle, This book is outstanding. Its written perfectly. The characters are flawless. Its an exceptional must read. I cant wait for more.  This book gets 5/5 stars You need to add this to your "TBR" list.  I

Story was juvenile and boring. Verb tenses were all over the place.

Throttle Me by Chelle Bliss tells the story of a hot man on a motorcycle, City, who rescues the prim and proper but stranded Suzy on the side of the road. City brings her to a bar so she can call for help and, well we all know what can happen when you add a few drinks into the mix! Suzy may be proper and a control freak and never curse but her fantasies…they run wild! And tattooed, Harley riding, bad boy City definitely begins to fulfill those fantasies. As for City, let’s just say Suzy gets under his skin. I enjoyed my first book by this author. I liked how she had the characters pushing each other out of their comfort zones so that each of them could then become a better fit as a couple. Throttle Me was a very HOT and STEAMY read! (One piece of advice: you might just want to choose a less public place to read this book than I did! A crowded waiting room-not the best place to read a book as HOT as this!) Throttle Me is connected to Chelle Bliss’ Love at Last Series, however it is a completely new series and you do not have to read the Love at Last Series to enjoy this one! I received a Complimentary Copy of Throttle Me from the author in exchange for my honest review.

Loved this book and the book cover! It will be one of my favorite reads. You have a shy girl with naughty desires and a sexy bad boy who will make you want to drop your panties. Instant chemistry and steamy sex. I loved the interaction with all the characters and the storyline. Can't wait until the next book in this series!

Throttle Me by Chelle Bliss Joey & Suzy I've been reading bits and pieces of this story for months... while Chelle rationed those bits and pieces out, I bit my nails, stomped my feet, and did everything short of beg for more!!! This enticing tale will lift your spirits, bring you to your knees, and make you gasp for more air than I fear your lungs can handle! This is a love story, but more importantly, it's a journey of self discovery,  acceptance, and peace. Oh yeah, and some uber hot sex scenes you'll be re-reading more times than you can count!!! Well, maybe that was just me... lol!!! I. Am. Hooked! Joey, a.k.a. City was everything I wanted and needed. A perfect alpha male in so many ways. He's enormous, he's  talented, he's sexy, he's got tons of tattoos, and it has to be said, he rides a Harley and this in itself is enough to make my panties  burst into flames! I love the fact that he's one of those "what you see, is what you get" kind of guys. Although he harbors things about himself and his past that only those closest to him know, he's pretty much still and open book! Unquestionably one of my favorite  lead males characters! Now, Suzy Q, well, she's so damn cute, you can't help but love her. She makes such a tremendous renovation within herself that by the end of the book, I almost didn't recognize her! In a good way! Not that I didn't love the old Suzy, but the new Suzy, wowza.. I mean,  she really changed my perception of love and adoration. Sometimes what we thinks we want is not always what we need and I'm so  glad she took a chance on City. Her attempt at swearing had me rolling around on the floor laughing my butt off... I mean, holy hell... "His dong!" - I'm laughing out loud just typing this s***! Great supporting character cast in all of Joey's family. Boy oh boy, I'm thinking Italian for dinner tonight. And Chelle, I need those recipes... I know you have 'em!!! Joey's Momma Mia is, well, she's perfect. The boss, but also the nurturing, caring voice of reason. Everyone should have a Mom like her! I so can't wait to find out what happens with Michael. Just thinking about that fighter has me salivating all over my keyboard! Of course seeing how Sophia and Kayden are faring warmed my heart and I was glad to see them  living the life they were meant to live. Even though this was Joey and Suzy's book and I loved the climax, I still feel there is still more to their story and I'm hoping we'll see  that in the next "Men of Inked" book! There are too many highs and lows to mention, but the pacing is perfect and the dialogue flows quite nicely taking you on a wild ride of love, laughter, and hot steamy sex! It's 260 (Kindle version) pages long and it was enough to grab me by the short and curlys, slap a helmet on my head, and take me for the wildest ride I've been on this year. Chelle, creates the  right amount of tension leading to that remarkable climax. I love you Chelle Bliss!! You knocked it out of the park with this one!! 5 Stars cause 10 is not available!!!

Wow! City is the complete package when it comes to an alpha bad boy. Suzy is the sweet, innocent "girl next door". City & Suzy's love story is sexy & sweet with a little suspense. Tne Gallo family is the BEST & this is a great start to the series!

This is the first installment in Chelle's new series and  I was looking forward to reading it.  This book had me at the cover but the story is AMAZING!!! Loved meeting City and Suzy!   Opposites attract and let's just say they had a very strong pull! Suzy a/k/a Suzette (only when deemed necessary by City) was as straight laced as they come.  A no swearing, looking for Mr. Reliable, hard working school teacher until she meets City and he turns her world upside down. "Laugh while you can, sweet girl." I murmurred against her lips.  "I'm going to make you scream all of those dirty words that you're too scared to say."  ~ City OMG!!! City a/k/a Joey, YES PLEASE!!!  A super sexy, Harley riding, tattoo artist who stops to help a stranded motorist....well that's what he wants us to think.   There were definitely more layers to City and I enjoyed uncovering each one. It was nice to watch their story unfold.  Suzy was not accustomed to "family" and City had plenty of it.  We get a glimpse of all of the Gallo siblings and their personalities.  Their family banter was real and at times made me laugh. Overall, this was a story about letting go...whether it was of an ideal, heartache or inhibitions....they covered it all and the journey was worth the ride.  So if you haven't had a chance to read anything by this author....go grab Throttle Me and get ready to become  a fan.  I know I will be looking forward to the next installment in the series, Hook Me.  This will be Michael's story.  Get Ready!
