 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.

“Do you swear?” I asked as she set the glass back on the bar.
“What?” She gaped at me.
“Do you swear? Simple question. You’ve said ‘heck’ and ‘friggin’’ so far, but nothing dirty.”
“Oh, um, yeah, I swear.” Her cheeks turned pink and a small smile spread across her face. “I’m just used to watching my words with the kids around all day.”
“Prove it,” I said as I stared in her blue sapphire eyes.
“What? Why?”
“Cause I need to know if it’s in you. Are you all good girl or is there more under there dying to come out?” I hid the smile and laughter that was so close to breaking free from my lips. The pink of her cheeks spread across her face. I know I embarrassed her, but fuck, I needed to know if I stood a chance.
“Yes, I swear. What do you think I am? I’m not a child, City.” She glared at me as she raised the drink to her lips and wrapped them around the rim. Fuck I wanted those lips wrapped around my shaft, taking me deep and sucking me off.
“Never said you were, babe. Do you drink besides tonight?” I asked, now smiling because I knew she was upset. I liked the fire I saw in her eyes when I pointed out her good girl qualities – she obviously didn’t like being labeled.
“Sometimes. I’m just responsible. I don’t drink and drive. My dad used to be a cop and it was drilled into my head at an early age.” The words she spoke hit me like a ton of bricks. Drunk driving was the one thing in the world that caused my blood to boil.
Good girl teacher with a cop father? Just my luck. “Nothin’ wrong with that. Virgin daiquiris aren’t always your thing, then?”
“Why? Do I have to be a drinker? I mean does it make me less of an adult?”
“No, Suzy. Just trying to get a feel for who you are – what you are.”

The best thing that ever happened to Suzy was breaking down on the side of the road. And why oh why has this never happened to me?!?! Every time I break down it is NEVER a hot tatted up biker that stops to rescue me! NOT FAIR! And OMG is City hot. He is everything you want in an alpha male without all the douchy parts. 
Suzy is a prim and proper school teacher who never steps outside the lines, that is until a god of sex puts her on the back of his bike and gives her the ride of her life. From moment one Chelle sucked me into this story and did not let me go. Action, adventure, love, and steamy make you have to change your panties sex. Did I mention the hot sex?
Some things I loved about Throttle Me: engaging cast (even the side characters were wonderful and added to the story) and the fact that there is not a cliffhanger! I have become a fan of serial books...but I prefer the ones like this. Where there is an overarching story line, but each book can be read as a stand alone. There are way too many cliffhangers out there and they make me want to stab a teenager in the face (okay...maybe I wouldn't really stab a teenager in the face over a cliffhanger, but if I had to choose between the teenager and a puppy I'm just saying the teenager would need stitches). 
I love the story and the characters...I will gladly give this book a solid 4.5 stars! I cannot wait to see where Chelle will take us with the rest of the Marked Men! (and can I just add that the next book stars Micheal, a MMA fighter as the main character...I seriously may spontaneously combust when I read it) <3 

Chelle is an avid reader; consuming contemporary romance, dark reads, young adult, and all things erotica. She wants to create a book filled with characters that readers could relate to with real world problems and matching wallets.
