Summary

Rocco Caldo is tall, dark, and handsome, but not interested in love. Loyal to a fault, he can’t turn away an old friend in need or a beautiful woman on the run...especially when they have unfinished business.

Rebel Bishop is a single mom looking for shelter, not a handout. But when her path crosses with an old flame, they uncover an ember of passion that’s been smoldering inside them both for over a decade.

Can they move beyond their tragic past, allowing the flame to burn bright into their future?

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

Perfect mix of sweet & sin!

I just LOVED every second of this story and I am pretty certain that Rocco & Rebel are my favourite couple in the Heatwave series.

Samantha Brentmoor has become one of my favourite female narrators, but Connor Crais......wooowie, where have you been hiding?! These two are a lethal combination and I hope they are paired together for future stories.

Mello As

Chelle Bliss usually serves up sensational story’s and characters you can feel their personality come alive however this one left me wanting more. The story line had substance however it was the characters that I felt could have been delved into more. Without giving away any spoilers I felt Rocco dark / sexy side could have been more apart of the story line not just an add on at the end and Rebel started of sassy but wained over the story.

Samantha Brentmoor and Connor Crais delivered a brilliant performance and made the listening more enjoyable.

Rocco

Omg, Connor Crais has got the most awesome voice, I absolutely loved hearing him, I have the ebook too and was able to whispersync between the audible and the book, though I must admit I mainly listened to his voice, Samantha did a good job too.

Not an Ember but an inferno

Chelle Bliss has a way with words, I don’t think I’m revealing any secrets here, she writes strong females and the alpha males that can handle them. She also weaves a brilliant web of suspense and intrigue into every story of hers that i have read. This one is no exception and came close to kicking City and Suzi off their number one position for me. This one was fast paced and full of drama and action but also family and love which for me is the draw card for me regarding these books.

First class narration just brings it to life for me making an epic story even better. Can’t wait for the next Chelle Bliss book.

Amazing Story & Characters! Fantastic Listen 🎧📚🎧

Chelle Bliss continues to wow me with another fabulous “Men of Inked: Heatwave” novel. l am loving this series and each of it’s characters, heck, there has not been a Gallo or Caldo that I have not practically fallen in love with and I know who ever they allow into their tight knit circle is going to be pretty amazing too. This book is Rocco and Rebel’s story, Rocco is Izzy & James’s son, he has two brothers his twin Carmello and the youngest in the family is Trace. They’ve all appeared in earlier books and I was looking forward to their story. This books starts out with the two brothers and their girls, Rebel and Carrie, up in their family cabin living carefree and having some hot sexy times. They decide to go to a party in the wood, heading there the unimaginable happens and less than a minute their lives were forever changed. That night was the last she saw of Rocco, she went on to her life with out ever really living, her saving grace was giving birth to her daughter, Adaline, she gave her her reason to live. But then her life became to tumble and she needed to get out of an abusive relationship, having no where to turn she called Carmello asking if she could stay in his cabin until she found a place to live. He could not say not and they met up at the cabin. Of course Rocco found out and needed to find out what was going on and see her. Finding out she was in trouble and on the run he goes into protective mode and takes her under his wing, Rocco turned into a bossy alpha, but then again he is a Gallo/Caldo man. Rebel notices other changes in him as well. I loved how great he was with Adaline, calling her Addy and making her feel special. Also loved how Izzy and the Gallo crew took a liking to both Rebel and Adaline. The chemistry between Rocco and Rebel is electric and they could only deny it for so long. It was great to watch them get reacquainted and see that there was still magic between them. I loved how everything played out in this book, the story is beautifully plotted with plenty of drama, angst, some action, thrilling and suspenseful moments, heartfelt and emotional ones and a smoking hot romance. Chelle Bliss, thank you for another awesome story and the emotional rollercoaster ride.

🎧📚🎧And for the wonderful narration, Samantha Brentmoor and Connor Crais are talented narrators and versatile voice artists. They bring these characters to life, humanizing them, giving each their own voice and personality. Their portrayal of each character was spot on, they took each role and made it their own sounding believable and just as I pictured them to sound. Connor Crais played Rocco with perfection and Samantha did the same for Rebel, loved her Adaline too. Both were great performing the roles of the secondary characters as well. They set the perfect tone for the story, captured all of the characters emotions and projected them into their performance. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another awesome listen🎧

Embers burning bright!

First, let me say, I love the Gallo/Caldo families. Every book pulls me in and makes me want to be there with them! This one is no exception. Rebel and Rocco meet when they are 20 & 19. After a night filled with passion and an incredible connection, tragedy strikes, The two meet up again 10 years later and now things are much different. Both matured, but single the connection is still there. But Rebel has baggage. An abusive boyfriend that may be trying to find her, she comes to the one place she feels safe. And she has a beautiful daughter to protect! Will she be able to stay and protect her Addy? Talk about heart melting. I loved Rocco's confidence from the beginning. He is very secure in who he is, and now that he sees Rebel again, he knows exactly what he has been waiting for in his life. The scenes of him with Addy are touching and truly show his true heart. Rebel is a little harder to warm up to, but I can understand her. She has been through a lot, and trust doesn't come easy. But this family...enveloping all the loves of their children's lives and making them part of their own just warms my heart. This is one of my favorites of this series, and I will be visiting it again.

Samantha Brentmoor and Connor Crais are a fantastic team! Brentmoor always brings her best, and as Rebel, she is incredible. Then she flips to Addy, and brings a smile to my face! Crais is fast moving up to one of my one clicks. His voice is like melted chocolate, and just draws me in. Together these two are amazing.

I love this book/series. I love Izzy and James even more after listening to this book. There are some serious heartfelt moments in here. I wanted to knock Rebel in her head a couple of times but I got past it. I am so in love with this family! The narration was great. I definitely recommend this book/series. 🎧Audiobook obsession

Ember

Ember?! Shit, the book was a raging inferno!! Complete with plenty of sexy times, a little bit of suspense, and a whole lot of Gallo/Caldo family!! I love how the kids are growing up, having kids of there own and finding love!! There is also plenty to make you cry in this book - both happy and sad tears! But if you can get past the beginning of the book, where your heart gets ripped to shreds, you are rewarded with more love than you can imagine!! I completely forgot about doing much of anything else today, except for reading this book!! Loved everything about this book and the Gallo family feels like family! Yes, I know there fictional! But isn’t that a sign of a brilliant writer - when they can make you forget your troubles and you know the characters so well they feel like there yours!! Most definitely a five star read!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The chemistry is real!!

Rocco and Rebel are the emotional story. Ember is the perfect name for this story.  These two are more than scorching hot. They are an emotional blast that simmers. These two pulled one my heart. I love a good second chance romance and Rocco was insanely ultra-swoonable. Add in the most adorbs little girl, Adaline, Rebel's daughter and there's only fallen head over feet for these characters.

The narrators Conner Crais and Samantha Brentmoor brought this story to life. Crais is a real up-and-coming narrator. Every time I listen to his narrations, I'm more enthralled with his voice, with his ability to bring Rocco to life. He added a layer of swoon that made Rocco the swooniest of swooners. I can't wait to see where Crais takes us! Brentmoor pairs so well with Crais. These two share a chemistry that translates perfectly to the ears.

This is the seventh book in the Men of Inked Heatwave Series, a next generation from the Men of Inked Series. I love the Gallo and Caldo families! It is better to listen to this series in order. Rocco and Rebel's story is sweet, emotional, and beautiful. Rebel's daughter is so cute!! This is a great second chance to love. The supporting characters are great. I love the family bonds in this series. Samantha Brentmoor and Connor Crais did a great job with the narration. I enjoyed it! Looking forward to listen to Singe, Carmello's story, the next book in the Series.

second chance romance and all the feels

Rocco and Rebel's story takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster. I have now found my new favorite couple within the Gallo family. Of course I say this with each new title because the books get better and better. Just when I think Chelle Bliss cannot get any better she proves me wrong. Any title written by Chelle will always be on my list of books to read.

I love reading about the second generation. I started from book 1 until now. It’s great how the other characters from the previous books make an appearance and you get to see a little about them now in each Jew book! Can’t wait for Mellow’s book next!!

Hotness!

I am in LOVE with Samantha Brentmoor & Connor Crais as Rocco & Rebel!
These two made this listen all that much better. I am in love with this series and I have been waiting for Rocco's book...it did not disappoint.
I love a good second chance at romance story and this had it all...Rocco was sort of sailing along in life, never really committed to anyone or anything.
Rebel on the other hand was struggling through life, she jumped from one relationship to another. She finally asks for help in the most unlikeliest of places.
If you want a hot, sexy, listen then you need to grab this one today! Samantha and Connor are amazing and I could listen to them for hours.
