Book 1, Men of Inked: Southside
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
This isn’t how fairy tales typically begin, but it’s where mine starts…
No money, no phone, and abandoned on the streets of Chicago.
With my baby in my arms, I wander into a bar in a shady neighborhood and ask to use their phone.
When my father turns us away and completely disowns me, the bar owner, and total hottie, offers us a place to stay…no strings attached.
I’m leery at first.
Hot alpha guy.
Down on her luck single mother.
I mean, who wouldn’t be wary?
Lucio Gallo isn’t like most men, though. He’s fiercely protective, loyal, and did I mention he’s covered in nothing but muscle?
Above all else, he’s everything I need but never knew I wanted.
Oh my!! If you love the Men of Ink this is for you. If you enjoy hot panty melting men this story is for you. It’s hard not to like a man who is sexy, smart, considerate and can handle a baby. Lucio Gallo is that man. As soon as he and Delilah meet all bets are off. He is an alpha male with just enough sweetness to knock Delilah off her feet. This family is the kind everyone wants to be a part of . I loved this story so will you !!!
Ecstatic for more Gallos
One of my favorite series ever (many many re-reads) is Men of Inked, with their crazy tight loving family (and uber hot men). So I can’t even explain how ecstatic I was to hear that the Gallo’s were back, but this time the Chicago family. It starts off with an oh my gosh moment, and just takes off running from there. Delilah is a pillar of strength, even when put in a situation no mother ever wants to find herself in. Strong and brave and loving. She meets Lucio who is generous and caring and protective (let’s not forget hot & yummy!) A moment of kindness turns into a world of more. You can’t help but fall in love with this family, with Lucio and his amazing self, Delilah and her incredible strength, Lulu with all her adorableness, and of course Betty. Ya gotta love Betty. I completely loved this book. I’m so happy it’s the first of many (lots & lots, right Chelle? ;) ), and that we’ll get to know the Chicago Gallos as well as the Florida Gallos. I can’t wait to read more!! Hurry up and get started!!!
Well this author has done it again. I just loved this story.
Delilah had a lot of responsibility. She had a daughter to think about her her father was not making it any easier. Right off the bat we get to see what kind of man her father really was. I can not imagine what it would of been like to have been raised in a home with no love. I love that she did not want that for her daughter.
Lucio was the kind of guy that could melt your panties. He was also a kind soul. He was a type of person that could not just look the other way when someone needed him and maybe that is one of the reasons he helped Delilah. He saw this scared woman that needed help.
I just loved Lucio mom. She was so funny. I love how she was trying to push Lucio and Delilah together. I could also see how much she really loved her kids. I love that motherly love that she shown Delilah. It was just what Delilah needed.
There are plenty of steamy parts and truly me when I say the author does not disappoint. I truly loved seeing in the story how Delilah blossomed and really came out of shell. I also loved how she discovered that family was not always blood.
