Falling in love is supposed to be the easy part.

But nothing prepared me for losing my wife. I promised her that I'd love again. Find someone to mend my broken heart. And that seems impossible, until the day that I walk into Tilly Carter's cupcake shop.

I've never met a woman like her—sassy, dirty-mouthed, and smells like vanilla and sin. Someone that makes me want to sweep her off her feet.

But there's pain in her emerald eyes that mirrors my own.
A past that neither of us can truly escape.

Now that I have her, I'll do anything to keep her.

5 star Review Hook ( Men of Inked: Southside #3) by Chelle Bliss I have read many books by Chelle Bliss but Hook is my absolute favourite. I knew this was going to be an emotional roller coaster of a read when Ms. Bliss had me crying ugly tears within the first few pages and also in the last chapter. Angelo Gallo is a man who was shattered by the death of his wife; left to raise their two young children with the support of his family. Tilly's is the new owner of the cupcake shop next door to the Gallo pub; a military widow. Both of them, have been devastated by the death of their spouses. Can Angelo and Tilly, two broken souls, come together and heal each other? I have been waiting impatiently for Angelo and Tilly’s story since Chelle Bliss announced it. Have you ever anticipated a book that once received you didn’t want to start because you knew once you finished, you would have a book hangover? That’s what happened with Hook. I was completely blown away by the emotions that Ms. Bliss drew out of me. My heart broke for both Angelo and Tilly at times and I was so excited when they decided to move forward with their blossoming relationship and fell deeply in love. I loved how Angelo’s family and Tilly’s brother in law Roger, supported them. Not only are the Gallo men outstanding but so are the women. I love the Gallo family and when I start a new book it feels like I am coming home. They are all such great characters and Hook is a fantastic example of the love of family and what they will do for each other and those they care about. This was a hot, steamy story,full of emotions which will keep you on the edge of your seat. I have a new favourite Gallo. One click now, you will not be disappointed. Chelle Bliss has another winner on her hands in my opinion.

This is Chelle Bliss at her best just when you think you have seen the best of the Gallo family she throws you another and this time it’s Angelo’s story and let me tell you it’s the best so far !!!! This book has all the feels you want in a love story, you will shed some tears you will laugh out loud but you will also end up feeling all fuzzy inside. Angelo is the most amazing Gallo yet he is trying to move on with his life and be the father his kids deserve and there is no room for another woman in his life but that was before Tilly opened her cupcake store next to the bar. Tilly is funny and smart and she is the perfect match for him if he can just leave the past behind. I really don’t have the words to describe how this book made me feel and how good this story is so I’m all I’m going to say that we haven’t got outside January yet but this book will be on my best reads of 2019 so what are you waiting for get your one click finger working and grab a copy of Hook.

Ok, I need more than five stars for this one! Hook is the third book in the Men of Inked: Southside series and the prologue simply gutted me. After a beginning like that, there was no way that I could not keep turning the pages. Tilly and Angelo are perfect for one another and have a second chance at love. His kids are great, I always love a book with children and little Tate is wise beyond her years. The other characters in this book are amazing, I loved Roger and of course all of the Gallos. Cannot wait for the next book in this series. Get ready for an emotional read, from sad tears to happy tears and a few giggles in between!!

A great story of loss and healing. Of learning how one can find love again after the ultimate loss.

Great second chance love story that brings hope to those that truly believe hopeful romantics will find their own love connection. Can anyone explain to me who is Cole? Tate is talking with Tilly before the wedding and is asking her if she and her brother can call her mom.

Even though I cried reading it, it was almost cathartic for me. There are times during grief and the following years after losing someone, especially to a disease like cancer, that something as simple as snow falling (that will always get me) will catch you off guard and it just punches you in the gut making you feel that pain all over again... even though that time it may not be as hard of a punch. That is what this book was at the beginning - a good solid punch to the gut... I love how Chelle gave such a realistic telling of finding love after loss, while still honoring those they lost. Bliss wrote this story in such a way that you cannot help smiling through your tears and having your heart slowly put back together in such a joyous way. Tate was a shining star in this journey and I got some great giggles at her parts. I love getting to see how the family has continued to grow and what they have to look forward to.

It’s fun, heartwarming story with heart wrenching moments. OH MY!! The FEELS!!! This story will captivate you from the beginning as it pulls at your heartstrings. You will love the characters and storyline. I love the connection, the banter and the chemistry. I absolutely love the Gallo family. This story is great addition and must read.

Hook, Men of Inked: Southside by Chelle Bliss is book three in her series. Every book is about another couple and can be read as standalone. For better understanding I recommend to read the books in order. The previous books are Maneuver, Flow and now Hook. The next memeber of the Gallo family meets his one. Angelo is one of the Gallo siblings and together they own a bar. He suffered a tragic loss and hasn't recovered yet. But his family deems him ready and his kids need something more. He tries to move on. Tilly Carter is his new next door neighbor. The widow is about to open a Cupcake Shop. She's loud, sassy and smells delicious. His kids and his family are sold on her. Only Angelo needs some pushing. Hook is a emotional read. Be prepared to have tissues at hand - I was in tears at page three. It's a heartwrenching story and put me in a rollercoaster of emotions. Hook is a great read, I give 5 stars and can't wait for Vinnie's book, Hustle.

My new favorite book of Ms. Chelle Bliss I am sad that I let go of Resist Me as my favorite book from the author but Hook is my new favorite. You might need a Kleenex while reading this book. The story is amazing. You will pour out your hearts and might bawl like a baby. The sweetest yet the most emotional book I read this year. If you have a sweet tooth, you will even love to enjoy eating the cupcakes even more. Losing someone is the hardest but letting go your past brings the bright future. This love story is so epic. I loved every moment while devouring reading this book in one night. Book that is hard to put it down for me is the best read ever and Hook indeed hooked me in my Nook.

This ones a tearjerker right from the prologue and I loved every one that fell. The story is heartbreaking. Both Angelo and Tilly have been through the wringer and meeting each other just had to happen. The story has a joy and laughter among the pages, then the switch is turned and the emotions are heartbreaking. The rest of the Gallos appear in full which is always nice to see and the story was entertaining. I highly recommend it!

Wow. I LOVED this sweet and endearing story. We have two people Angelo and Lilly both mourning their late spouses. Neither are over their grief but together they just might be able to move forward. I cried while reading this story so that has to tell you that this is such a great book. I loved the emotions and thought that went into this book. This is a must read!

I have mentioned before I am not a big fan of inst love but this is a little different. How do you let go of a lost one when they were all you knew and you thought you could never love again? They have lost what they thought was the love of their lives, but he made promises and she never said good bye. They share the loss and guilt of being the one left behind to live. This author makes it feel less like insta love and more like an awakening or a completion. As each piece of their individual hearts starts to mend and find it's new norm they find their new beat is all them. The kids are adorable and the family is just that and more, but Mom rules (as it should be). Lots of laughs, deep sighs, and tears as they realize it's okay to love again. This is a wonderful feel good, emotional (and so much more) standalone from this author.

Angelo found his soulmate however she passed away way too early and although it was years earlier, he is still trying to pick up the pieces and be the best father he can to their two children. He promised her that he would fall in love again, but he didn’t think he could until Tilly came into his life. Tilly has her own painful past and she has opened a cupcake shop next to the Gallo pub. When Angelo hears a crash next door and goes to investigate, he is intrigued by the fiery spitfire who doesn’t hold her emotions back. She is the first woman to inspire feelings in him since his wife passed. This is an emotional story about healing, family and second chances. Tilly and Angelo are not only great together as a couple but they fit into each other lives and families. Hot chemistry, humorous banter and great secondary characters all combine into the perfect package.

First thing grab a fresh box of tissues before you pop open this book because you will need it from the first page. Oh my word! Author Chelle Bliss has given us readers a book that touches so many little spots in our lives and says feel this... feel that and how about some more. As I was reading this book, I could not help but think about this author and her group of friends and I know deep down in my heart where where this book has to have come from. I do not think I have every experienced as deep a feeling as this book brought me too within a book. We all think when we marry that one person it will be for better or worse, until death we do part and expect it to be a good long while...right. Sadly it is not always that way. Life gets in the way. This book shows us that and in the cases of Angelo and Tilly lighten might just strike twice. Add in a couple of cute kids and this is a book I could not put down last night. This is indeed a book i can guarantee I will be re-reading again (because i mean who doesn't love hot men right). So grab your tissues and see if you agree.

Oh what a beautiful story. Not only did Chelle deliver us a hot and sexy book but it was a story about grief, guilt, healing, and the characters learning to keep going on with their lives through the pain. It was beautiful, heartbreaking, heartwarming and it even had its times of hilarity. Another example why I am such a big fan of Chelle Bliss. Both of these characters have lost someone in their lives and are learning how to get past the pain and to try and find some happiness once again. They are drawn together through their pain and form a bond that is undeniable. I loved the original Gallo family and I am really loving this branch as well. I am looking forward to Hustle!!!

This story was soo touching! It really knows how to tug at your heartstrings. To see two people struggle with loss and try to figure out how to move on to be happy again is very emotional. I felt like I was part of their story and could feel their pain. To see such a strong tough Gallo like Angelo be so sweet and loving was great. He really does “love hard”. In true Gallo fashion, it was hilarious to see the family butt in and push Angelo and Tilly towards each other. They have such a strong family bond and I love the way they welcome new members. Angelo’s daughter stole the show though. Man that little girl is GOOOOOOODDDDD! :)

To get one true love in your life is special, but to get two...... Angelo mourns the loss of his wife, carrying on day by day for his children, but he's just going through the motions until Tilly assaults and cusses out her mixer. He never thought love would find him again, but seeing his new neighbor kicking and yelling at a mixer wakes something up in him. A great story that makes you believe love can find you anywhere, at anytime.
