Hook Me by Chelle Bliss

Book Description

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 on 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.

Hook Me has certainly hooked me for sure. This second installment of the Men of Inked series is just so addicting! We are reintroduced to Mike Gallo who we met in Throttle Me. He is City's younger brother and is the tattoo shops piercer. He is also working to become a top MMA fighter. When he leaves the cage after a win with broken ribs he first meets the woman who will change his life... even if it takes a while to happen. 

Mia Greco is the ER Dr. who patched Mike up after one of his fights. The meeting had a strong effect on Mike while Mia did her best to remain aloof and not give him any encouragement. She works hard and doesn't have time for a relationship, let alone one with a man whose job is fighting. She fixes people.. she doesn't break them. 

Move ahead a month or two and here is where they meet again. The instant attraction is still there for both of them and boy do the sparks fly when Mike sees Mia dancing at the bar with her two best friends Lori and Sarah. This becomes a not so delicate seduction on his part trying to get Mia in his bed. 

They become addicted to each other quickly, not wanting to let the other go. Things become serious when Mia meets the family during a ER visit and as all good things happen something has GOT to mess it up. The plot on this one is probably every man's nightmare. Only when you step back will you see the humor of it. The big question is will Mia and Mike be able to overcome it and move forward or will this kill their blooming relationship before it had a chance to really get started. 

I loved this book. The characters didn't deviate from  how they acted the first book Throttle Me and continue to act the same throughout this book. She has put together a wonderful cast of characters that you need to know their stories also. The plot is wonderful, and is set up from the very beginning of the book. I recommend this series to anyone who loves dominant men and strong women. I will be looking forward to the novella Throttled Me coming out soon!
