Michael Gallo found his calling in life – he wants to kick ass. He works at Inked as a piercer, but spends his mornings training and dreaming of winning an UFC championship. Michael is the road to achieving his goal when a chance encounter alters his world forever. The title is no longer enough – he must capture the woman of his dreams.
Dr. Mia Greco is dedicated to saving lives and helping those less fortunate. She doesn’t have time to meet Mr. Right with her busy schedule. She buries herself in her work and helping humanity. Fate steps in and sweeps the carpet out from under her. She tries to deny the pull to him, a man that uses his fists for gain, but the universe won’t let her walk away so easy and Michael isn’t one to take no for an answer.
He has a secret that may rip them apart. There are forces bigger than them at work; drawing them in and making their worlds collide – not letting either one of them walk away.
Hook me Men of Ink 2, Introduces you to Michael Gallo, The fighter of the Gallo family, and younger brother of Joe aka City from Throttle me.
I can tell you that when the Gallo boys fall in love, they do it hard and fast. They have absolutely no problem letting the world know as long as little sister Izzy doesn’t get involved!
The story follows Michael and Mia, two very different people on two opposite paths in life, one that pierces and punches his way through life, while the other repairs the damage.
Mia, an ER doctor with no patience for violence and no time for anything but her job, patches up the sexy Gallo one night in the ER. Feeling an instant connection, Mia narrowly escapes Michael’s advances that night.
Fate however, always has a way of shoving what we didn’t know we needed right in our paths when we least expect it! That’s exactly what happens with Michael and Mia when the run into each other in the club.
Of course There are challenges in every relationship and When Michael’s crazy friend with benefits decides to stake her claim in a GRAND way, Mia has to decide if her first impression of Michael was who he really is, or is he the man she’s gotten to know and possibly fallen in love with.
Michael has finally found something\someone worth fighting for, and he’s not going to give her up without a fight!
"Mia...I won't break your heart. For the first time in my life, I've found something worth fighting for, someone more important than me."
I loved, and I mean LOVED the fact that Mia is a head strong, opinionated, pain in the a**, with a great job, and financial stability as opposed to some other heroines. In my opinion, Mia saves Michael in this book, not the other way around!
Hook me also gives you a glimpse into how City and Suzy are doing! It was nice to see them seamlessly incorporated into this book without them stealing the show! Mama Gallo is hoping for grandbabies as usual but she also showed a different side of herself in this book! You get to see her love and respect for her children when she helps Michael with a sticky situation. Izzy of course is still stuck in the role of annoying lil sister, always reminding the boys that “there’s too many cocks for it to be fair!”, but she’s not only that, she’s a fierce protector of her brothers, ready to step in to defend them at any turn!
All in all Hook me did just that, it Hooked me, and it will do the same to you! I can’t wait to read the next book telling Izzy’s story!
