Title: Sinful Intent
Series: ALFA PI Book #1
Release Date: July 14th
Author: Chelle Bliss
The moment I saw her, I wanted her.
I tried to resist her, but Race had other plans.
One night, in a moment of weakness, I gave in to my desires.
I still had a job to do before her world collapsed.
If I failed at finding the person behind the threats, I could lose her forever.
Temptation can be dangerous.
I stood in the doorway, surveying the bar and trying to pick Ms. True out of the crowd.
A woman peered up from her phone and looked back down.
Whoever she was, she was fucking gorgeous. She sat there with her spine straight, blond hair in a perfect bun, and a crisp black dress shirt tucked into a gray pencil skirt. Her high cheekbones almost kissed her deep-green eyes.
I wanted to saunter up to her, ask her for her number, and beg that on our first date she wear the red stilettos she had on, which made my cock instantly hard.
She glanced up, caught me staring, and waved me over.
Well, hell. Maybe she wanted my number too.
Keep calm and act natural.
Her eyes remained down, concentrating on her phone, as I approached.
“Mr. DeLuca, I presume,” she said, glancing up for a moment, her emerald eyes flickering. “Take a seat.”
Disappointment flooded me. The beautiful creature in front of me wasn’t calling me over to get my number. She was my new client.
“Ms. True?” I asked, letting my eyes linger on her legs for a little too long but not caring.
“It was going to be one of those weeks. Loud, loving, and sweet enough to make my teeth hurt.”
“I’d just have to find a way to break it to my ma. Leaving her behind was something she’d throw in my face for the rest of my life. She’d probably fall at my feet or hang on to my bumper as I drove out of the city, screaming for me not to leave her.”
“I’d like to think I was pretty levelheaded, but right now images of Texas Chainsaw Massacre kept playing over and over again inside my head.”
“We all have scars. Some we can see and others we can’t. Wear those with pride.”
“In all honesty, I hadn’t saved Race True. She’d saved me. Giving me a life full of love and everything I’d always needed but never knew I’d wanted.”
I loves me some Chelle Bliss and Sinful Intent is one of her best… not that I’ve ever read anything from her that wasn’t stellar. Her long-time and faithful Men of Ink fans will love this new series as we get to continue on with the Gallo clan – a vibrant set of characters I want to follow until I take my dirt nap. But this series will be easy for new fans to pick up and run with without having read her previous works – but why not read them anyway? With Sinful Intent we meet a Gallo cousin Morgan. Morgan DeLuca’s life has turned a corner, new career, new town, new home, new attitude, and with his first official case – a new woman.
Chelle Bliss definitely has the writing gene, her books are well plotted, easy to follow, humorous, thoughtful, unfailingly entertaining, deliciously steamy, and they make this old cougar hum. I alternate between gasping, smirking, and gulping cool drink when reading her work. Given her creative sensual scenes, I believe Mr. Bliss must be a very lucky man, or is he the one providing her with these creative ideas? Hmm, either way, I imagine their neighborhood frequently registers seismic activity.
