Michael Gallo found his calling in life – he wants to kick ass. He works at Inked as a piercer, but spends his mornings training and dreaming of winning an UFC championship. Michael is the road to achieving his goal when a chance encounter alters his world forever. The title is no longer enough – he must capture the woman of his dreams.
Dr. Mia Greco is dedicated to saving lives and helping those less fortunate. She doesn’t have time to meet Mr. Right with her busy schedule. She buries herself in her work and helping humanity. Fate steps in and sweeps the carpet out from under her. She tries to deny the pull to him, a man that uses his fists for gain, but the universe won’t let her walk away so easy and Michael isn’t one to take no for an answer.
He has a secret that may rip them apart. There are forces bigger than them at work; drawing them in and making their worlds collide – not letting either one of them walk away.
Okay, so this is Michael's story. Michael is City's brother, he is a piercer at Inked, the tattoo shop all the Gallo kids run together, except for Thomas, who is an undercover cop. He's an MMA fighter, without an ounce of artistic ability, so he leaves the tattooing to City, Anthony, and Izzy. Mia is a doctor, who works almost constantly. She was leary of Michael, considering he beats people up, and she patches people up for a living. To say she wasn't exactly on board is kind of an understatement. Michael is persistent, though, and eventually gets her to go out with him.
I'm going to say this, Mike is a big ol softy. Sure, he beats people up, but he has a good heart, and he's romantic. Don't let these descriptive words fool you, he's definitely an alpha male. Mia seems to be just the kind of woman Michael Gallo needs in his life. Unfortunately, all good things get a little bit sour now and then. Especially when a crazy ex fling gets involved.
Enough of that. I'm just going to say that I enjoyed Hook Me. Chelle can definitely write a steamy read. I can't wait for Izzy's story. That girl is going to give some poor soul a run for his money. It's going to be so much fun to read about.
