Waiting to be fixed - Rocco and Rebel a chance to heal
This is the seventh book in the Men of Inked: Heatwave series and it is an emotional, pull at the heartstrings read that brings readers Rocco and Rebel’s story. “Death hugs a person like a second skin, never leaving them after they feel it coating their soul.” Dealing with a loss is never easy and when it happens at a young age, the effects can be felt for many years after. Things have never been easy for Rebel as she grew up in a cruel environment. After the tragic death of her best friend, Rebel pushed away the one person who made her happy, Rocco. Fast forward ten years and the one-man Rebel never forgot is back in her life and he is determined to right the wrong of letting her go. Ms. Bliss has once again given readers another fantastic book in this Gallo world with the Caldo family. This is one storyline with all the feels and a precocious child that just adds to the overall goodness. This is a must read! P
beckera_ann - Heat and Heart
Not everything is hearts and flowers in Rocco Caldo’s world. After losing one of his friends, and being pushed away by a girl he was starting to fall for, Rocco swears off relationships. Rebel Bishop is the girl who got away. But she’s back in his life after 10 years, bringing a five year old daughter with her. On the run from an abusive ex-boyfriend, Rebel seeks solace with with the Caldo twins. Her and Rocco get closer, stoking the flames of years past.
What I love about this book, like many others, is the familial aspect, and the intensity. The Gallo/Caldo men love and protect like no other. If you’re in their circle, there’s no doubt the lengths they will go for you. They’re fierce in their feelings, not not afraid to show it.
Ember is a must read, and easily slid onto my favorites list.
SamantHockey - Mind blown!
Another flawless book by Chelle Bliss. I cannot tell you how much love is in this book. Family love, romance love, old love, new love, friendship love. It takes you on an adventure of excitement, heartbreak, remorse, healing, commitment, and brotherhood. I cannot say enough good things about this book. Absolutely fell in love with these two.
HB1221HB - Phenomenal book as always!
I’m so sorry for the loss of your grandparents this year. You created a phenomenal book though, so good I read it in one evening! This book hit home and let me get lost in your Gallo world once again, and for that I thank you! I promise to patiently wait for Mello’s book! Till then, stay strong!
Racy Carr - Love that never dies
I loved the story of Rebel and Rocco. I listen to the audio while following along with the ebook. I loved the narrators that the author used. Not only did the author pull me into the story but so did the narrators. They put so much emotion into reading the story.
The story started off sad and I was not expecting it to start with so much heartbreak. My heart went out to Rebel, Rocco, and Carmello. It had to be hard to recover what they went through. I loved that Rebel and Rocco were reunited after everything was said and done. I love that he was so willing to step up to the plate and help her out when she truly needed him.
This story has so much of a little of everything. The Caldo family will really pull you end and give you just what you need on reading about a close net family. Plus there is some pretty hot steamy stuff as well. A book well worth reading or listening to on audio.
cconcus - Embers to Fire!!
This book was EVERYTHING!!
The ending of Spark left you wanting to know what happened to Izzy and James's boys and we get to find out in Ember.
Rocco and Rebel are full of heartbreaking past. Will they be able to help each other heal?
Having a past with each other and being pulled apart because of life and tragedy. Will their past keep them apart of will Rocco be able to prove an ember ban become a fire worth having?
This book again was EVERYTHING!!! The journey we see with Rocco and Rebel shows that second chances and romance can happen.
Can't wait for Carmello's story.
Christine stalker - Freaking amazing
Rocco is one compassionate loyal stubborn man. He is missing something.
Rebel is a loving caring compassionate woman. They have a past that is complicated. Could not wait to see where there story would go. Love how Rocco was able to show Rebel she is wanted and needed. Can’t wait to read more.
threers - Off the Charts HOT romance. Loved It!!
Ember was so HOT!!!! Rocco and Rebel had one night together ten years ago but the heat never died. They were far apart but never far in thought. Tragedy pulled them apart. Tragedy crashes what they started. Tragedy will bring them back together.
Rebel needs a place to hide. Rebel needs a place to keep her little girl safe. The cabin from ten years ago would be perfect. Can she open herself up? Can she risk her heart? Does she have other options?
One call changes her life. One decision brings her back to Rocco. Ten years apart is a long time. The spark might have fizzled. Rebel fears the future. Rocco needs to know, needs to care for the one woman that has had his heart.
Rocco's life might have turned to ash but the ember for Rebel remains. Ten yeas and the heat hasn't died. He just knows she is everything. Can he show her? Can he convince her?
Ember is a beautiful journey. Ember is a show not tell romance. Rocco will do everything within his power to show Rebel that the embers of their past can ignite their future. I was so happy to be long for the journey. Ember was so satisfying that I read it for a second time.
Now I get to smolder, waiting for Carmello's story.
Jrhampt - Sweetness
With the continuing stories of the Gallo family , Rocco and Rebel are a great pairing to the family. The original books have suspense and romance where the next generation is working on finding the person to complete them like their parents have. I love the series and always have the next one on preorder. The series is a binge read over and over!
Romance213 - “Rebel was the woman I could never walk away from.”
I love any Chelle Bliss book, especially when she gives us more time to spend with the Gallo family members. Izzy and James’ sons are all grown up and I am sure Rocco and Carmello have broken many hearts and have many stories to tell. Rocco Caldo is just like his Gallo uncles: handsome, sexy, thoughtful and a man who loves fiercely. Tragedy united Rocco and Rebel forever and neither time or distance could weaken their connection. Rocco doesn’t want to be anyone’s hero, but the minute he saw Rebel and her adorable daughter he knew that fate had stepped in to change his life. His first instinct was to whisk her away and hide her from the world so she would feel safe and begin to trust again. His parents taught him that family comes first, kindness is a virtue and that love is a blessing that should never be ignored. Even after all this time, Rebel was still in his heart and always on his mind. She needed him now and he wouldn’t let her get away again. They were made for each other and he would protect his new family at all costs. To truly love someone you must forgive yourself and them, for things that happened in the past. Once that has been accomplished, the path to true love is beautiful, magical and well worth it. Rocco and Rebel's story is very emotional and it shows us that even when darkness has taken over your life, there is always light and happiness just around the corner.
Rinsky13 - 😍😍😍
These Caldo boys grew up to be heartbreakers (but seriously, what would you expect). This is Rocco & Rebel’s story. They have chemistry off the charts and a connection that’s undeniable, but tragedy stepped in and changed everything. Years later they get their second chance and their connection, and chemistry, is still off the charts. Time hasn’t lessened feelings, they’ve grown stronger and more intense.
I completely fell in love with their story, with these people, and of course with seeing this big family again,. I don’t want to give anything away so the only thing else I’m going to say is read this immediately!!! You are sooo going to love it!!
Yoli277 - I loved Ember
I’ve been highly anticipating the Caldo twins books and of course, Chelle Bliss exceeded my expectations. Rocco Caldo is hot as sin and Ember (Men Of Inked: Heatwave #7) is absolutely everything!! Rocco and Rebel met ten years ago, tragedy struck and they haven’t seen each other since. Both of them have been through a lot and are definitely in need of happiness. And once they’re reunited, it’s more than obvious that the flames between them never died. These two have such an amazing connection and their chemistry is off the charts. And Rebel’s sweet little daughter, Adaline is such a wonderful addition to the story (especially when she interacts with Rocco). I love the storyline as it’s full of passion, heat, humor (The Gallo family and their crazy antics never disappoints) and emotions. I can’t wait to read Carmello’s book!!

Rocco and Rebel what a story!
I absolutely loved it. Anything with a Gallo in it is gonna have my attention and of course I’m gonna love it and Ember was no exception.
Another great read from the amazing Chelle Bliss as always.
Jaxwright57 - All the feels
Ember is a wonderful addition to the Men of Inked: Heatwave Series. As soon as I saw the blurb for Rocco and Rebel’s story I knew we were going to be in for one very special read and Ms Bliss did not disappoint because this book was everything I expected and so much more. It’s beautifully written, it’s emotional and it will certainly tug on your heart strings. It was always going to take a special lady to win Rocco’s heart after all he has a very special mother to compare all woman too but as soon as I met Rebel I knew this single mum from his past was going to be that woman. This is a fast paced, emotional and passionate story that touched me on so many levels, I loved Rocco and Rebel, I smiled, I swooned and I sighed but it was an adorable little girl called Adeline who stole the show with her classic one liners that left me giggling. . I love the Gallo family and just when I think I have read the best from this series, we get another heartthrob to fall hard and fast for, we get more characters to add depth to the family and we get another read we won’t forget. Im really loving this second generation series and I’m excited for the next instalment.
Erin Lewis aka Maimeo's - Emotional and steamy
After finishing Spark, I was a little worried about what Chelle Bliss had in store for Ember, book seven in the Men of Inked: Heatwave series. Having read all the previous books I was convinced that I have already read my favourite but I wasn’t counting on James and Izzy’s son Rocco who I adore.
I fell hard and fast for this swoon worthy, caring, protective and passionate man and knew that the woman who earned his love would need to be special. When I learnt that the woman who burrowed deep down into his soul is Rebel, a woman from his past and that she is also a single mum, I knew we were in for one heck of a ride.
This was a fast paced, passionate, story which will keep you on the edge of your seat as danger and suspense unfolds. Reading a book about any member of the Gallo family is for me like catching up with much loved family members.
There is humour, steam, tears and an adorable little girl called Adeline who almost stole the book right out from under the Gallo clan. This book is all about love and family and what one will do for the person who holds their heart. I love this generation of the Gallo’s as much as the originals.
