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.


My Review

Story... Suzy is a very shy, innocent, school teacher.  She has a list for her life.  A life plan and she wants things according to her list.

Suzy's car breaks down and she waves down a passing man on a bike to stop to give her help. That man turns out to be City and he is a gorgeous, tattooed, rugged man.  Suzy is instantly attracted to him.

Suzy gets a lift with City to a bar where she can call a tow truck but the attraction between the two is clear and sizzling hot, and they end up back at City's place... in his bed.

Suzy and City start to see each other but neither are in a hurry to put a label on it. They have both been hurt in the past so they both want to take it slow, but Suzy does try to pull away a few times, and one of those times ends in disaster and a very hurt Suzy.

"He wasn't the type that settled down and had a family and I couldn't blame him.  He was a playboy that led a different life than I did.  He was on a different path."

City and Suzy sort a few things out and finally start a relationship together.  They both talk about their pasts and why they have held back for so long.

There is a lot of sex in this book, A LOT! and it's very hot and steamy!

Some outside forces do hurt City and Suzy but I was happy to see that they came together as a couple instead of falling apart and using that as an excuse to leave each other.

This story does have a HEA! But you will have to read the book to find out the surprise at the end!

Why 3 Stars... Well Suzy confused me, we really don't get to learn in depth why she has her list and has to have certain things in her life.  And Suzy was kind of shy and innocent, there was times when the story talked about her not being able to swear but yet she was calling her best friend a whore, so that didn't make sense to me. And let me tell you, you will be SHOCKED at her fantasies, they will come FROM NOWHERE!

And City/Joey/Joe/Joseph just really didn't come across as a badass tattoo biker like I was hoping.  I struggled to see him manly at times, just how he interacted with his brothers and other characters was kind of immature so then I lost the big bad sex beast until he was back in the sack with Suzy then I got him back.

There isn't a whole lot of angst in this story and I love my angst, it keeps me entertained,  But this story seemed to wane at the end and I felt that I had already finished but I was just reading just to see the ending, if it would end with a baby, proposal, I already knew everything was going to be okay so I lost a little bit of interest.  Although how it ended was nice surrounded by family and the surprise at the end did surprise me.  I wasn't expecting that particular surprise ;)

Overall, I liked this story, I just didn't love it.

If you love a story about a biker with tattoos who wants to make a good girl scream naughty words then Throttle Me is for you.  

★★☆ 3 Stars ☆★★
