Izzy Gallo has never been described as a member of the weaker sex. She’s a woman who doesn’t take shit from anyone. Growing up with four older overprotective 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?
Review by Amanda
Izzy has been a tough, independent and self sufficient woman her whole life. Surrounded by a band of brothers who support her and love her, but interfere in her life, she has always made it her mission to keep her private life exactly that – private. An on /off again love affair with a boy from her school days leads her to Daytona Bike Week. Izzy cannot wait to party and let loose out of town and away from the watchful eyes of her brother – not to mention all the hot sex she plans to have.
When an encounter with a group of bikers goes horribly wrong and Izzy is left in the clutches of a biker named Blue (OMG – wait until you find out who he is), the cavalry is called – in the shape of James Caldo. He is sin on a stick, in the shape of a perfectly packaged alpha male.
James gets Izzy home safely and the small taste he had of her starts consuming him. He decides he needs more and arranges to spend a dirty weekend with her. Oh my GOD, the things he does to her will leave you in a hot, sweaty mess – this book is HOT and if you aren’t into hot sex, then this book isn’t for you! I loved it.
After their weekend together Izzy makes it clear to him that she is not in it for the long haul, she makes it crystal clear that she is not looking for a relationship and sends him on his way.
James is not someone that quits on things easily and he makes it his mission to get Izzy to submit to him and give him everything he wants.
A night out with the girls has serious consequences for Izzy – will this be enough for her to realise she needs a tough, alpha male in her life.
Chelle Bliss each book gets better and better. I loved this one, it is so refreshing to have female characters that are ballsy and that have no fear. This is definitely one of my favourite things about your books. James, I have to apologise to the Gallo’s, is my favourite of all the men you have written. He is tough as nails, alpha to the core, hot as sin and makes his woman his priority. Although he is alpha he wants the partner not a doormat, and that makes me swoon.
The titles of the chapters will make you laugh out loud, “Gallo Family Clusterfuck”, “Hard to Swallow” and “Opinions are like Assholes”. This book will make you laugh out loud. It will also make you sweat, Chelle Bliss brings on the hotness like never before
“I’m telling you now. I love a good chase and a worthy adversary. You. Will. Be. Mine” he said calmly swiping his thumb across my bottom lip” – Resist Me, Chelle Bliss
“I brought these just for you.” He leaned over, touching my skin with the cold metal and dragged it down my spine. I sucked in a breath, the sensation intense against my hot damn skin. I closed my eyes, enjoying the feel of the icy hardware, and when I opened them, James had a very smug grin on his face. “Hands behind your back Isabella.” – Resist Me, Chelle Bliss
Again, this book is told in dual point of view. Ordinarily, this would drive me up the wall, but Chelle Bliss makes it work. Sometimes, I find that when women writers “speak” as men, it can all come out sounding very soft and weak, there is NONE of that in this story.
As for the end of the book – OMG! Is it time for Tommy yet?
I am giving this book 4.5 stars, I really loved everything about.
