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?
After reading about the Gallo brothers in the previous books in the Men of Inked series, I’ve been looking forward to Izzy’s story. She is the baby of the family, but seems to, at times, be the glue that holds these boys together. She is tough, opinionated, independent, and knows exactly what she wants… all great qualities to have. Except when she is put in a situation where she needs to keep her mouth shut to stay out of danger- then maybe it’s not the best.
When Isabella “Izzy” Gallo heads down to bike week with her friend and MC prospect Flash, she expects a weekend filled with hot, sexy bikers. What she gets instead is nothing but trouble.
James Caldo, close friends with Izzy’s older undercover brother Tommy, is the only one trusted to get her home safe. But the attraction and chemistry between the two of them causes more complications. Complications Izzy doesn’t want in her life- which is why she always pushes men away. But that might not work this time with James, because he wants Izzy and he always gets what he wants.
James was the perfect combination of a hard muscled softie with a heart, meets dominant dirty talking bad boy. While I loved his character, I did feel that he “fell” just a little too hard, a little too quickly.
Izzy is so strong willed, driven, and has the attitude to back if all up. But really she is just trying to protect her heart from being hurt.
I loved that we got a good amount of time with characters from the first books and also got a glimpse into who and what Tommy is all about. I love the entire Gallo family- they are all so sweet and loving to each other.
I did feel that the back-story (spoiler free) was all wrapped up a litte to quickly and mess-free. Given the nature of the storyline, I wanted more.
I look forward to reading Tommy’s story next.
I’d already raised my voice, but I couldn’t fucking help it. The woman was maddening. “I’m exactly what you need and want. You’re too fucking scared to admit it.”
She shook her head as she crawled out of bed and started to dress. “You’re not all that.”
“When you grow the fuck up, call me,” I said as I stalked toward her.
“You’re a total dick,” she hissed, moving to slap me.
I grabbed her wrist, pulling her to my body. Gripping her hair in my fist, I gave it a slight tug as I hovered over her lips. She gasped, holding my shoulders.
“You know you want me,” I growled, my lips a breath away from hers. “I wrecked you for any other man. I own your ass, Izzy. I’ll let you run, but you can’t resist me forever.”
