Publisher's Summary

Lily Gallo prided herself on her pristine reputation. A dedicated bookworm. An awkward goody-two-shoes. Lover of fiction more than reality.

Jet Michaels had always had a broken moral compass. A cocky egomaniac. An unashamed womanizer. Craving adventure instead of responsibility.

Lily never expected to come face-to-crotch with her old high-school crush, and she never dreamed he’d make her an offer she couldn’t refuse. But what was supposed to be a platonic arrangement quickly spiraled out of control.

Can the inexperienced nerdy girl tame the notorious player? Or will he peel back her pages, exposing the wildcat hidden underneath?

Blaze is the fourth full-length stand-alone novel in the Men of Inked Heatwave series by USA Today best-selling author Chelle Bliss.

Outstanding

Having read the first three books in this series and loved them I was excited to see what Chelle Bliss had in store for Lily Gallo and the man she falls for Jet Michaels. Narrated by Samantha Brentmoor and Jason Clarke they really brought Lily and Jet to life for me with their passionate portrayal of these characters.

Lily’s naivete had me laughing so much at times and I loved how Jet constantly bolstered her confidence and Jason Clarke did a wonderful job getting that across.

I have always loved the Gallo’s, reading the next generation and seeing how Lily has grown into such a lovely young woman has been great fun. She easily gets lost in the books that she reads and is seen by the family to be the shy and the quiet one. However Jet is the total opposite, a player who isn’t afraid to go after what or who he wants.

I loved the relationship that built from friendship between Lily and Jet. There was something sweet about their relationship and I love how a platonic relationship soon turned to a scorching one. There was humour and so much chemistry between Lily and Jet that you could almost feel the air sizzling between them. I also loved how Jet was so patient and all in with his love for Lily.

This is a book full of love of family and what they will do for each other and those they love. It was also great to catch up on other members of the family and I cannot wait for the next story in the series.

Swxy!!!!!

As always, Chelle Bliss has written a hot and steamy tale. Blaze is Lily's story. I listened to this book over the course of a few days and had to glance around to make sure no one could overhear what I was listening to.

BLAZE is one of my favorite stories so far. it is about following your dream and being your authentic self.

Narration was spot on. These actors are two of my favorites because they really bring the story to life.

I believe that BLAZE can be read as a standalone but to get a fuller reading experience, i think all of the books should be read.

I absolutely recommend this book, this series and this author.

Best of the best

I can’t tell you enough how I love everything from this author. She has created a family that is so loyal, they’d be the first to your defense and the first to call you out. I laughed so hard at points in this novel because of those family ties. I also felt for Lily and her dilemma with Jett. The crush turned into more was so delicious. And Jett? How hot can a man get??
The narration was so spot on. I have a new appreciation for Jason Clarke and his ability to voice so many different characters. Samantha Brentmoore is new to me and I so enjoyed her take on all the emotions that swirled in Lily’s world.

No..

The idea of the story YES
The narrators YES
The execution NO
This would be a hard pass unless maybe it's a freebie. The main character is supposed to be tough but is scared of a guy she likes.. like toooooo scared. I can get the initial timmid shy vibe.. but this was too much. And how everyone else had to tell him for her... just no. Maybe if they were like 12.. was still too ridiculous even for 18 let alone early 20s. I haven't read the others so now I am curious of their story, but I just don't think I can.

Wow! great audible book!

Wow great audible book!!

Now I've read this book before but listening to it on audible just made the story so much more life like and really made the characters and their personalities "blaze"!!

The narrator's did a fabulous job for each of their sections, although I did notice that Gigi and Tamara sounded super valley girl-ish but I liked it.

But this is Lily's story...and Jett's. Lily is at a crush on Jett for years and when he mysteriously pops up into Inked to get a piercing, she kind of freaks out. Because he wants a Prince Albert and this happened to be the first time her father was going to let her do it by herself. Unbeknownst to her, Jett has also had a crush on her for years so her handling his junk made it a bit awkward. After talking they discovered both of them were looking to move out of their parents house and jet encourages her to room with him when he gets a place. She finally agrees and there's a huge ordeal on having to tell the parents because they're just friends. But neither of them want to be "just friends" ...but more. And eventually that more happens. It's a wonderful story with some plot twists and all your favorite characters from the previous Gallo family all show up. I absolutely adored the story and the narration.

I received an ALC for my honest review!

I'm hooked!

I don't know how I've missed the Men of Inked series - either I've been living under a rock or my book reading buddies have some 'splaining to do - but now that I've met some of the characters, I'll be remedying that problem soon.
In Blaze, Jet and Lily are front and center and this romance is just all kinds of swoon-worthy. Now, I don't know if Jet lived up to his reputation in earlier books, but it is mentioned here. As for the here and now, he's a brilliant combination of sweet and sexy. He's all alpha male but comfortable enough in his skin to put Lily first. Speaking of Lily, I absolutely loved when she has her big epiphany about her life.
This is the audiobook, and Chelle Bliss couldn't have chosen narrators any better. The book is done in dual narration with chapters alternating between Lily and Jet, and Samantha Brentmoor and Jason Clarke are terrific. Samantha Brentmoor captures Lily's innocence and doubt combined with her struggle to assert herself perfectly, and if you haven't had the pleasure of listening to Jason Clarke, you don't know what you're missing. You can't help but swoon over that voice, and he gives us the sexy and the emotional in equal measure.
As I mentioned, this is my first experience with the Gallo family, but it will not be my last. I definitely have some catching up to do as I wait for the next in the Heatwave series.

Blaze

Again, another great book in this series.

A highschool crush grows into so much more.

Lily and Jet meet again after Jet's time in the military.
Those 2 are so cute together. They don't wanna confess to each other that they had a crush for such a long time.
So it's really interesting and sweet to see how they find together.

The book is steamy, but also so much fun.

Top listening experience

Ermigod...
This book was everything I had hoped it would be and more.
Jet was the perfect nudge—that Lily needed—to get out of her head.
They were sweet, sexy, fun... the perfect mix for a swoon worthy read/listen.
As for that ending? I NEED MORE!
Talk about cliffhanger.

Jason and Samantha completely slayed the narration.

Favourite in the series

I loved this one. Why??? Because Lily Galo is my type of women. She is considered to be a book nerd 😊 She dropped out of school to go work in her dad’s tattoo and piercing shop. When Jet ‘Blaze’ Michaels returns to his hometown he never expected to run into Lily and that she would be available. So when he convinces Lily to move in with him as friends sparks seem to be flying between them. But Jet has a hard time convincing Lily to give him a chance… But when you know you know… lol

I Loved this book. I loved the book nerd versus the womanizer storyline. And bonus my favorite narrator Jason Clarke and my getting used to Samantha Brentmoor 😊 I think out of the whole series so far these two are my favorite ♥♥ 😊

Lily and Jet!

After deciding that being a doctor isn’t the direction she wants her future to take Lily has returned home and is now working for the family business and handles piercings. Lily has always been more comfortable around books then men so when Jet, her high school crush, comes into the shop looking for her skills things are about to get interesting.

Jet has returned home after serving in the military and when he sees Lily he is enchanted. He has always had a reputation with the ladies but she was the one lady he wanted but never went after but that is about to change.

These two were so much fun together. Jet is so swoony as he is determined to overcome Lily’s reservations and show her that she is the only woman for him. The narrators were a perfect choice for the characters as they brought out all the humor, heat and heart of the characters.

This series gets more addictive with every book

Before I even started this, I ordered a copy of book 5. Jett and Lily were super cute. They went to high school together and both wanted the other but never made a move. When Jett returns to town, he knows right away that Lily is the one and I quite frankly was here for the whole ride. Once again the ending was super rushed and almost like a cliffhanger, but I really want more from this and this whole group. I volunteered to listen and review a complimentary copy of this. All opinions are my own.

A sweet story with some serious heat too.

Well Gigi and Pike were my favourites before but Lily and Jet are giving them a run for their money. This is book 4 in the Men of Inked Heatwave Series from Chelle Bliss and I am loving these audiobooks. Lily the nerdy bookworm ends up with her high school crush Jet the ex-military man. After reconnecting in the funniest scene (no spoilers here but you will laugh so hard), Jet pursues Lily even though she can’t believe he would want a “girl like her.” I loved their story so much. Lily is so unsure of herself and Jet coaxes her little by little to come out of her comfort zone. As always the supporting cast are a bunch of crazy Gallo family members. Tamara from “Wildfire” is a classic with some of the stuff she comes out with. Sometimes I wish I could head out on a night for drinks with her, there would definitely be some fun stories to tell. I think it’s the mark of great writing when you want to spend real life time with the characters.

This is a sweeter story than the others so far but with no less heat. When these two finally get it together they go up in flames. Seriously HOT! Chelle describes her characters so vividly, you feel like you’re there with them. I’m so glad Lily gets the courage up to take what she’s wanted for so freaking long and Jet is so careful not to spook her. He’s the polar opposite of most of the Gallo men as he’s not openly alpha all the time. He is the fierce protector of Lily but he’s also so sensitive to her needs. He wants so badly for all of her experiences to be amazing. Aaaaannnnnnd there’s a cool wee surprise at the end. LOVED IT!!!

The narrators do a stellar job of bringing these characters to life. I only just discovered Samantha Brentmoor recently and once again she hits the nail on the head. You can totally feel the hesitance in Lily and her utter embarrassment at some of the things her cousins come out with. Samantha has a great range of voices to draw from so when there’s a conversation between multiple people there is no mistaking who is saying what. She gives us the whole spectrum of emotions for Lily and I thought her performance was top notch. Jason Clarke again delighted my ears with his portrayal of Jet. As well as just having a bloody lovely voice to listen to, you really felt Jet’s frustration and his care when talking with Lily. He showed us perfectly that Jet needed to reign his sh*t in to finally get the girl. Such a great pairing of voice actors, I think they are my new favourite team!!!

Enjoyed it

Blaze: Men of Inked Heatwave book 4 had me hooked from beginning to end. This was Jett and Lily's story but we also get the Gallo gang making appearances. It was a fun story with a great blend of humor, steamy scenes and romance. This was an opposites attract, friends to lovers romance with great banter and some humorous moments. I loved it and can't wait for more in this series.
The audiobook was narrated my Jason Clarke and Samantha Brentmoor. These two two did a fantastic job with the narration. They complimented each other perfectly and their voices were clear and understandable. I enjoyed listening to them narrate this novel.

SWEET & INNOCENT LOVE STORY

This book is not like all the rest in the series, it’s a sweet love story full of awkward innocence. Lily Gallo has always had a crush on Jet Michaels but unbeknownst to her Jet has always felt the same, he was always just waiting for the right time.

I loved seeing the interaction between all the family members in this book and the strong bond they all have along with all the witty banter between them all. With all the awkwardness of Lily I had quite a few LOL moments. Throughout there’s subtle hints I picked up on which leads to an all mighty cliffhanger....thank you Chelle Bliss can’t wait to see where she takes this one.

As always Jason Clarke and Samantha Brentmoor do a fantastic job at narration.
