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.

Made a new fan out of me.

This is my first Chelle Bliss book and I enjoyed every second of this read. I didn’t know what to expect but I enjoyed the characters and definitely will be hitting up her back list. The narrators did a great job bringing this story to life. Lily and Jett are the cutest and I loved watching them get the hea.

Gallo Hotness!

Man, oh man. I knew I was going to love Jett and Lily from the first chapter.

Jett and Lily have known each other their whole lives. Jett is a few years older than Lily and she’s always had a crush on him. But Lily has always been the quiet bookworm so she felt invisible around him. When Jett comes back into town and they have a very interesting re-meet, he’s looking for a roommate. So is Lily. The two move in together and their chemistry ignites.

Jett is just… wow. He’s the perfect match for a Gallo woman. Protective, smart, and a backbone to match the strong women in the family. And Lily is an undercover badass. Having your father as a former world champ in MMA, you’re taught a few things. Especially with Gigi and Tamera as your cousins.

Jason Clarke and Samantha Brentmoor were amazing as Jett and Lily. I love when they narrate together. Both were the perfect choices for this story.

Love entire series!

This author knows how to write great romance stories! So far I’m unable to tell you which book is my favorite in the series. Each book keeps getting better and better. This is the first time I’ve read this author’s work, but it won’t be the last.

Love this series!

The Heatwave Series is amazing but this was my first one to listen to on audio! Excellent story and narrators.

I really loved Lily and Jett and the first few chapters were hilarious. Such a fun story and I hope we see so much more of the couple in future books.

Sweet goodness, that was hot and amazing!!!

Where to start, sweet naive Lilly Gallo and her inability to read the dreamy Jet Michaels had me in stitches - right from the beginning when she gets intimate knowledge to his crotch and through their relationship. Although awkward and painful at first, Lilly and Jet turn up the heat and find true love. Naturally I love the role of Lilly’s dad, a true overprotective Gallo father. But true to his roots, Mike trained her well - strong, independent and willing to fight. All this was brought to life but fantastic narrators that had me sucked in right from the beginning, couldn’t stop listening!

This book was so great — it was so funny throughout I found myself thinking this could be conversations my husband and I would actually have!! I would be that mother and my sister is definitely aunt Suzy!! LOL At the same time the author finds away to still give us a love story that’s hot and sweet at the same time!! I absolutely loved this book!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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.

An opposites-attract, friends-to-lovers romance

This book had me hooked within the first few minutes. The way Jet and Lily met again after years of not seeing each other had me laughing out loud! I loved that we get to see how couples from the previous books are doing (hi, Gigi!) I loved the witty banter between the characters and the dynamics of the Gallo family.

The story makes a sudden turn in the last chapter, making it end with a cliffhanger. I can't wait to see what happens next!

Samantha Brentmoor and Jason Clarke were amazing! Their voices complement each other, making this audiobook a joy to listen to.

Blaze is an opposites-attract, friends-to-lovers contemporary romance written in dual first-person POV and recorded in dual narration. It ends with a cliffhanger. No cheating.

I received this book at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Lily and Jhett was everything!!

Welcome back to the Gallo family! I adore this family and how they love and take care of each other! I could not get enough of Lily and Jhett. I loved the sweet, naive personality that Lily has. She definitely hasn't seen her own potential yet... she's beautiful and smart but she's also fun loving and hilarious, she just has this charismatic charm that is totally endearing. Jhett is bust as amazing but in different ways.. He's caring and open while still being this strong and loyal alpha that the Gallo's insist for their women. Jhett is just as secretly smitten with Lily as she is with him. Once these two admit it, you'll understand the title a bit more because these two light it up!!

Jason Clarke and Samantha Brentmoor were great! I loved how Samantha was able to really channel Lily. I totally heard that innocent Lily with the sassy, vixen sneaking in every now and then! Jason Clark brought Jhett to life! He was sezy as can be! His voice was like sweet tea on a summer breeze... he just hit ya in all the right places at all the right times!!

Gives you some real Awe moments

This is Lily’s story, slow burn, little angst, friends to lover, hold your attention, have you in stitches, but most important you also get to see Lily get the man of her dreams, and he gets the girl he has been pining for.
Samantha & Jason were the perfect narrators for this story.
