Description from the publisher:
She’s about to become his – Mrs. Joseph Gallo.

All she wants is to be his, but his possessiveness days before the wedding has her questioning the reality of a happily ever after.

He’s not easy. He’s territorial and doesn’t share well with others.

City’s staking his claim, making Suzy his forever.

Their future teeters precariously on the cliff of matrimonial bliss.

Will their love survive his alpha nature or will it all unravel before she can say ‘I do’?
This is a novella in the Men of Inked series to be read after HOOK ME.

City and Suzy are in the final planning days before the wedding.  Happily ever after is within their grasp… until
City’s jealous nature threatens their bliss.  City is hot, possessive, and protective, but the caveman act can be a lot to accept at times.  Has he scared her away?

I loved City even more in this book than in the first one.  He is still his normal alpha self, but there is a lot of tenderness as well.  “I stared at myself in the mirror, and was disgusted by the person looking back.  I was better than this.  The man that acted out last night wasn’t me.  He was a jealous asshole and I’m a lovesick fool.”  Joe “City” Gallo, Throttled.  Suzy is still sweet, but she has gained a positive sexual identity and a foul mouth to rival any of the others in the Gallo family.  We are also introduced to Sam “Flash” and James Caldo, two men who will want to claim Izzy.  I love the characters and I loved this story.

I love novellas in series, because they are a short glimpse (or an extended prologue/epilogue) to assist the bigger story to move along.  This one did all of that and more.  Do not skip it.  I am so glad that I have the next book to start immediately.  Chelle Bliss and her Men of Inked are a do-not-miss series.
