✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ Ember by Chelle Bliss


Men of Inked: Heatwave, Book 7
By: Chelle Bliss
Narrated by: Samantha Brentmoor & Connor Crais
Publisher: Bliss Ink LLC

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.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

First, if you've never read or listened to a Chelle Bliss book, you need to! I'm fairly new to her books, but I'm loving every book. Including Ember. This second chance romance is so perfectly named. Things get dark and circumstances come between Rocco and Rebel, but the flame doesn't go completely out, even ten years later.
Rebel is a strong woman, determined to make it on her own, but the Caldo brothers don't give her much choice other than to let them help her. The chemistry between her and Rocco is off the charts, and these two really bring the heat. And Rocco - Well, Rocco is one of those completely swoony alpha males that you're not likely to forget, one that easily lands in the top ten book boyfriend list. Add in how thoroughly Rebel's very precocious five-year-old has him wrapped around her finger, and he's that much sweeter. We also get plenty of page time with Rocco's larger-than-life family, including some past favorites. 
Samantha Brentmoor and Connor Crais voice these characters, and Chelle Bliss couldn't have chosen any better for Rocco and Rebel. The narration captures the emotion of the story perfectly. Whether it's danger or love or swoony heat, it all comes through loud and clear. I've listened to both of these narrators before, so I expected good things from them, and boy, did they deliver.
Finally, and this probably should've been first because it's the first thing you see, but can we take a second for some cover love? That's one hot cover for an equally hot leading man.
