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 first book in the Men of Inked Series. I will also be reviewing the rest of the books in the coming weeks on my blog.
Throttle Me is the first book in the Men of Inked Series. It has been classified by some people as new adult, but I think this is squarely in the adult contemporary romance category. It is the story of Suzy and City, or Joey as I prefer to think of him. Throttle Me is just as much a story about how Joey finds love, as it is a story about how Suzy finally lets go of herself and all of her preconceived notions of what the “right” guy will be like for her. City is the opposite of what she thought she would find in a guy, but I loved how persistent he was in showing her she was wrong about him.
City looks every bit the role of the “bad boy”. He is tatted up, and has multiple piercings. Rides a bike and hangs out at seedy biker bars. But this guy has a heart of solid gold. Honestly, I liked him more than Suzy because no matter how many times City was great to Suzy and showed her that he was a good guy, Suzy just kept shooting him down repeatedly, even though it was clear that she had feelings for him. She just didn’t want to give him a chance.
I really enjoyed Throttle Me. I have already started the second book, and I am enjoying that one as well. The books follow the Large Italian family that Joey comes from. He has multiple brothers and one sister. I am Italian too, so I could relate to a lot of the family dynamics, especially the big Sunday dinners that no one was allowed to miss. If you like your guys hard alphas on the outside with a little bit of a goey center, that might even surprise them, great romance, hot and sexy scenes, then the Men of Inked series is the one for you! The fourth book, Resist me just came out, so you can read them all back to back if you want!
