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.
♥Hook Me - Excerpt♥
His hand rested against my back, pulling me closer, and I became lost in his kiss. The feel of his rough thumb pad as he stroked my face made my body feel on fire. The sound of the rain beating against the truck, the thunder rumbling outside, and our breath frantic and quick, filled the cab.
I climbed in his lap as he gripped my ass and pulled my bottom to him. I could feel his hardness against me and I ached to feel him inside.
I couldn’t deny myself any longer.
“Take me home, Michael. Stay with me tonight.” I didn’t even have to think about it.
I wanted him.
The light touches, commanding kisses, and the feel of his hardness had me wanting more, needing it.
“Mia, I don’t know if that’s a good idea,” he whispered against my lips.
“I want to feel your skin against me. Remind me what it feels like to be loved, Michael. Show me the beauty and make me forget.” I held myself up and stared in his eyes. “Please,” I begged.
His fingers swept against my cheek and I leaned into his touch, closing my eyes. “I’ll do anything you ask,” he said.
My Review: 4 1/2 stars
This was a great follow-up to Throttle Me, the first book in the series. I loved getting to know about Michael and the things that make him tick. Unfortunately, he's slept with the wrong girl, but realizes too late. Mia is an ER doctor and thinks Michael is gorgeous. It's not until their third meeting that they figure out where they know each other from. They work on their relationship, and this one is different for Michael, Mia is worth the effort to make time for her. They have crazy chemistry and amazingly they wait a while before having sex, but when they do - DAMN!! Shortly thereafter is when the crazy twists start coming, and they are crazy. I loved seeing all the Gallo's again, and I can't wait for Izzy's story which is next. That should be fantastic. They're a great family and fabulous characters. I love the way that Chelle has blended in the new people and made them part of the family seemlessly. The story line was great and kept me glued to the pages, not that I minded in the least.
