Izzy, Isabella, Doll & James, Jimmy, Cocky Bastard
I COULDN’T RESIST IT! THE BEST ONE YET!
Well, just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water… BAM out of nowhere comes that crazy ass shark Izzy. I’m telling you she’ll chew your ass up and spit you out. If you think James is any better, you got another thing coming. This story has so much complexity and so much turmoil that I struggled with all the emotions that it brought on in me all out once! Izzy alone made me want to laugh, cry, throat punch someone, and eventually sigh! HELP! I’m in the deep end without a life preserver and I have some crazy ass wop’s stiletto on top of my head holding me Under! *Gasps!
I’ll start with that crazy bitch Izzy… She is magnificently fucked up! Her attitude and demeanor are second to none! She means what she says, and she says what she means. She’s like the female American Gigolo without getting paid! Izzy is for lack of a better word, a perfect whore, but don’t you dare call her that, she’ll lay your ass out! She takes what she wants from her trysts and seems to never look back until…. James! Man oh man, does that hottie turn her world upside down and inside out. It’s essentially a love/hate relationship. She hates that fact that he won’t stop bossing her around and the fact that she may actually like it and James loves the fact that he’s gotten to her even in the smallest way, but he seems to need more than she’s willing to give.
Now James, he’s all alpha and so much more. He’s absolutely stunning and beautiful in a way that makes my heart hurt. He’s arrogant, stubborn, and full of himself… yep, I love him!!! He has so much on his plate, but seems to always have time to fuck with Izzy and believe me, he totally fucks with her! Although his professional life has huge responsibilities, working with Izzy’s brother, Thomas to top it off, his priorities seems to shift towards his time spent with Izzy. I have no doubt in my mind he’ll find his happy medium, but until then you just have to lay back and enjoy the torturous ride! Mmmmm, hurts so good!
Great supporting character cast as usual in those remarkable Gallo folks and of course Mia! I love how they just seem to know after one glance at you whether you’re a good person or someone that needs to be kicked to the curb. Those Gallo men are a force to be reckoned with, even Daddio Gallo can throw a few zingers in there. I’ll tell ya one thing, Momma Gallo sure showed us a new side to herself in this installment. I’m hoping to one day be invited over for Sunday dinner! I can almost smell the pasta! Suzy and Mia fit in so perfectly not only with their men, but as Izzy’s “sister.” They sure know how to handle her and handle her they did. That drunk scene made me laugh so much I had to put my kindle down and wipe the tears from my eyes!
Mia: “Come on, princess. It’s time to get your ass home. You’re going to need your beauty sleep if James is coming over tomorrow,”
Izzy: “I can walk.”
Mia: “Fine, tough ass. I want to see this shit on those heels.”
Izzy: “I’m a pro,” I bragged, trying to climb off the high-top chair.
Mia: “I’m filming this shit to blackmail your later,”
Izzy: “I’ll kill ya,”
This fourth addition to the Men of Inked series by Chelle Bliss has it all. It’s romantic, suspenseful, action-packed, and sexy as all hell! It’s so gripping, so enthralling that I could not put it down. The dialogue flows exceptionally well that I found myself reading so damn fast trying to find out what happens next. The tension that Chelle created starting back in the last book, Throttled was outstanding and lead us on this crazy ass path to an even more fucked up tale. The story of Izzy and James is not for the faint of heart. It’s not exactly uber dark and dank, but somewhere between mayhem and chaos. Resist Me is 284 (Kindle version) pages long and those 284 pages were effortless to read. Chelle has a unique writing style that seems to bring you to the brink of insanity and yanks you back just before you tip over the edge. I absolutely loved the multiple point of view. It always helps me to appreciate what a character feels and what they do about a certain situation. The pacing was just right and the climax superb!
5 Stars because 10 is not an option!
