Blog Tour: Honor Me with Review by Chelle Bliss

Honor Me, Men of Inked Book 6, by Chelle Bliss
City & Suzy are back!
I had everything I ever wanted—a wife, a kid, with two more on the way. I was living the American dream. After the babies were born, we hit a rough patch. I did everything to prove my love, to show Suzy that nothing was more important than her. After some work and a lot of time, we found our groove again. Just when life had evened out, a familiar enemy came back to haunt us. It wasn’t my past that followed us, but my brother’s. When the danger gets too close, I’ll do anything to defend my family. There’s nothing more important than the people I love, and I’ll protect what’s mine—even if it costs me my life.

Just when I thought the final “The End” was stamped on the Men of Inked series, Chelle Bliss brings us back into the Gallo Family world once more.  This time my all-time favorite couple Suzy and City take the stage for one last hurrah (Maybe?) and leaves fans badly craving more.  Honor Me does include so many of the other brothers and family members with the story which only makes me believe that maybe this really is the last Men of Inked book.  If Honor Me is in fact the last book, what better way to finish off the series than starting with the two people it first began.
Honor Me showcases just how life as changed for the leading couple.  Their precocious child is just like her father and the addition of two more children has fulfilled their family bond.  Suzy struggles with her personal views on the world, but City being the man that we all know he is, reassures her and brings her back better than ever.   He fights for them both while protecting them all at the same time. 
I’ll go as far as saying that I at first thought that this book might be an unnecessary addition to the story, but after finishing it, I have to admit I was so very wrong. Honor Me is about finding yourself when life continuously kicks you in the knees and how love really does triumph over all.  City and Suzy as well as the rest of the motley Gallo crew are the ideal of the American dream kind of family.  The connections and interactions between the siblings are amusing and tearfully painful when things go dark, but as the dust settles and fire dies down, they are standing together as a family stronger than ever.  Bliss does weave several of their stories together which makes Honor Me the perfect way to end the series. Everyone has a different path to follow and getting one last chance to take the trip with them is what makes this book special. 
Honor Me may be the last ride, but it was the best ride of them all.

Suzy glared at me. "What's this we shit? I'm the one with two aliens inside of me, trying to claw their way out of my body. I'm the only one pushing them out of my tiny vagina. Not you. Not her. Me!" She waved her hands frantically in the air. "I'm the one doing everything while you sit there calm, sexy, and without your body splitting in two. I'm going to be the one tearing wide open as I push two humans and their giant Gallo heads out of my body." She collapsed, gasping for air, and closed her eyes. I bit my lip. Pregnant Suzy was unpredictable, but in-labor Suzy was just downright scary. "I know, sugar. You're doing all the hard work. I'm just here to cheer you on and support you." Her nostrils flared and her eyes grew wide when she glanced up. "Support me? If you want to support me, you'll never knock me up again. You want to cheer me on?" She rolled her eyes and made a noise low in her throat. "Stop fucking talking." I braced myself, waiting for her head to do a 360. I brought my mouth right next to her ear. "My sweet little wife, you beg for my cock every day. It takes two to tango, sweetheart. I didn't put you in that bed." I lowered my voice further, whispering, "Your sweet little cunt did." She closed her eyes again and moaned. "You're just too damn good. I can't keep my hands to myself. It's still your fault, my dear husband." I couldn't hold it in any longer. I burst into laughter. "Now, I fuck you too good?" "Yes!" she screeched, pounding her fist on the crappy, plastic hospital bed. "If you weren't so good at it, I wouldn't be lying here right now." Just as I was about to reply, the nurse walked in. "I hear someone is ready to push." Her voice was so chipper, kind of like my wife's used to sound like before pregnancy. "Are we excited?" she asked, moving a tray of instruments next to the foot of the bed. "I just want this over. I'm so freaking uncomfortable." "That makes two of us," I muttered and nodded at the nurse with a fake smile on my face before leaning over and kissing Suzy's forehead. "Ready, sugar?"
