I’ve been patiently waiting for Guilty Sin since reading the last word of Wicked Impulse and it was worth it. We are introduced to Ret North in Top Bottom Switch and he and Aleese join the ALFA family in book three. In Guilty Sin Miss Bliss adds a new element to their lives in the form of Nya Halstead, a rescued young woman with nowhere to go. Nya almost seamlessly weaves into Ret and Aleese’s life and there’s no question that she belongs. I feel like I did when I read Top Bottom Switch…everything was the way it should be. There weren’t any over complications, games or over analyzing. The characters were able to communicate and react to each other naturally. Ret and Aleese were themselves while understanding of Nya’s trauma, but realizing she was a strong woman who didn’t need to be suffocatingly coddled. The relationship makes sense and just works. There’s no jealously as Aleese, Nya and Ret understand that each have a different role and their relationship with each other is at a different place. Ret is caring, understanding and the alpha hero that Chelle Bliss does so well. Aleese and Nya are strong women who will be the perfect partners.

Mend (2018) chellebliss.com/mend-amz
Mend is a beautiful story of love and loss and love again. Mend isn’t a complicated story. It’s boy meets girl, fall in love and then some outside force pulls them apart. A misunderstanding and hurt feelings keep them apart, but fate and circumstances bring them back together. Evie and Jack spend six lonely years apart, but the years do nothing to lessen their feelings for each other. Their love reigns over the pain of their supposed betrayal off each other. The years apart though agonizing help shape Jack and Evie into the adults they need to be. Once things are in the open the two embrace each others lives, past and faults with maturity. Throw in a troublesome sibling and funny best friend and you have a sweet story. To some it may seem simple, but Chelle Bliss’ words lift this story in way that’s beautiful. Reading the emotional forward and just imagining her mindset when writing made this story touch me in a way I can’t describe.
I received an advanced reader copy for and honest review.
I haven’t visited the Gallos in some time and haven’t read the first two books of the ALFA series yet, but when the chance to read another Chelle Bliss novel came I took it. She didn’t disappoint. Wicked Impulse deals with older characters, but with the same grittyness and strength. Bear and Fran are wonderful and their relationship drama free but with lots of action. Chelle Bliss adds another group of people to the Gallo universe but the addition enhances rather than overwhelm. Wicked Impulse is written in that witty wonderful way I’ve come to enjoy from a Chelle Bliss novel. Looks like I can’t put off catching up with the earlier books. While Wicked Impulse can be read alone, it’s so much more fun with the whole gang.

Top Bottom Switch
A hot sexy read. Love the chemistry between Alese and Rhet. Alese is a confused Sub looking for a connection. Rhetoric is Dom bored with the same old. One night they take a chance on each other and might just find what they’re looking for.
Top Bottom Switch is a novella so it doesn’t bore with unnecessary details or subplots. It focuses on the main characters and their thought process related to the relationship. Each book I read from Chelle Bliss continues to prove her amazing writing talent. The story is hot.
-Chelle Bliss has written a beautiful love story about love, loss and internal struggle. I was given an arc to read for an honest review. While I have read most of Chelle Bliss’s Men of Inked series I wasn’t prepared for the beauty of Enshrine. Callie and Bruno’s story is beautiful and an amazing journey.
