Overview

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.

Omg I’m so happy to be back with the Gallo’s and I was so excited that the part of the family from Chicago are getting their own series and let me tell you Chelle Bliss did not disappoint with book one in her new Men of Inked: Southside series if this book is anything to go by this series is shaping up to blow our minds......... Lucio Gallo meets Delilah when she stumbles into his bar with her baby and nothing but the clothes she is standing in and like all the Gallo’s we have meet before this is where Lucio steps up and shows Delilah that there are men out there who will help in anyway they can. Delilah’s ex left her when he found out she was pregnant and up til now she has been living with her acholic father but the night she stumbles into the Gallo’s bar is the night her life is about to change for the better..... I love this family in fact with every book I read I feel closer and closer to the family where loyalty is the number one rule they all live by. The characters have charisma and every couple has sizzling chemistry, this book has everything you can want in a story, love, passion, family loyalty and a few laughs along the way what a great start to a new series.

star Review Maneuver by Chelle Bliss Well I never thought I could or would fall for another Gallo man but Lucio Gallo hits all my buttons and is totally swoon worthy. There is nothing that I did not like about this man, he just does it for me. Although a ladies man, when the right woman comes along and in this case it is single mum Delilah Miles, he knows his is a goner in more ways than one. From the first page until the last I was captivated by their story and truth be told I didn’t want it to end. This was a smoking hot read that ticked all the boxes for me and in my opinion Chelle Bliss has another winner on her hands. The Chicago Gallos are just as family orientated as their southern cousins and just as inked, tempting and hot. They love, play and are loyal to a fault and for me if they would adopt me I would be so happy. When Delilah and her daughter fall on tough times, thanks to her horrible father, she has no idea how walking through the door into the Gallo’s Hook & Hustle South Side bar will change her life. Lucio and his mother Betty immediately offer her unconditional assistance and it is this that shows Delilah what family is meant to be. Betty was such a great character that I cannot wait to see what mischief she gets up to in future books. I love that at the heart of these books is the love of family and what they will do for each other and for those in need. Chelle Bliss writes with a depth of character that at times comes right out of no-where and knocks your socks off and this book was no exception.

Boy how I’ve missed the Gallo family, and even though Maneuver is a spin-off of the OG, their cousins are just as rowdy, just as smart mouthed, and just as controlling and domineering as their Florida counterparts. Book 1 in Chelle Bliss’ Men of Inked: Southside is Lucio Gallo’s story, and I love that Lucio’s introduction to the heroine, Deliah, is reminiscent of a certain kickass couple from the original Men of Inked. From the moment Lucio and Delilah meet and he decides to help her and her young child, they both become honorary Gallo members, and when it’s clear that the attraction between Lucio and Delilah can lead to something they both want and need, the Gallo charm and protective nature comes out and despite some hesitancy by both Lucio and Delilah, it’s beyond clear to readers that they’ve met their ‘one’ and now need to figure out a way to make it forever. At the heart of any Gallo story is the importance of family; they are a tight knit group of caring and loving people who have each other’s back at all costs, and the person who brings them all together, meddling in any way she deems necessary, which proves that Betty, the Southside Gallos’ mother, is just as crazy and loving as Maria. I love that Chelle Bliss decided to go back to her writing roots…back to the family who introduced readers to Bliss’ kickass alpha males and the sassy and sexy women who tame them and make them one woman men. I can’t wait for more stories from these South Side Gallos, and I’m hoping that as readers become more at home with this family that we’ll get the opportunity to catch up with the Florida Gallos because their cousins’ stories make me miss them even more. 4 Poison Apples

Loving this Chicago edition of the original Gallo series!! Delilah is awesome and I know this is going to be a great new series. Sexy, heartwarming and funny! You won't be disappointed for sure.

The Gallos are back baby! This is a book where all the fun, sexy, smoking hotness of the Gallos is back in full force! Lucio and Delilah met in the most unlikely of circumstances. But fate has a funny way of bringing people together. I loved watching these two not only grow together with one another but watching the strength of Delilah grow and become something all on her own. This is holy new Gallos clan you are not going to want to miss! I can't wait to see what happens with the rest of this family!

Enjoyed both of theses audio books. Maneuver is my favorite of the two. Both have the signature steam, parts of the Southside Gallo saga. Have to say Betty has way more stamina and patience then I would ever have. Enjoyed the drama and interactions of Lucio and Delilah. Daphne and Leo, have a good story. Both were good listens, romance, steam and story, can’t ask for much more.

First can I just say how Smokin HOT the cover of this book is? This is super sweet and beautiful love story. I loved Delilah from the very begining and little Lulu sounds absolutely adorable. Delilah lives with her angry alcoholic father who treats her awful and talks to her like crap and she doesn't want Lulu growing up in that environment. So one night her father picks her and Lulu up at the airport and after they're on the road Delilah realizes her father has been drinking and tries to get him to pull over and let her drive but he gets so pissed off he... You have to read the book to find out what happens. Lucio is this gorgeous hulk of a man who loves his life as co-owner of a bar with his brothers and sister and he enjoys playing the field and getting just about any woman he wants. The Gallo family is your typical Italian family and their mother is the sweetest. When the Author describes her I can picture her perfectly in my mind. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

Didn’t really care for this book. Very predictable and kind of boring.

Trust fund baby who's never worked a day in her life, has literally no friends, and zero skills to speak of, is dropped off in front of a bar owned by a hot guy with a hero complex. They're both hot and have no character flaws. And since she came to the blue-collar part of town, everyone with money is a self centered a-hole that she puts in their place, apparently making her the story's hero.

Men of Inked: Southside is off to a fantastic start with Maneuver, I could not put it down. The Gallo family is new to me, since this is only the second book that I have read by Chelle Bliss, but I have a remedy for that. Since I haven't read Men on Inked and this series is a spin-off from that, I guess I need to start from the first book and keep reading. Lucio and Delilah meet under stressful circumstances, her rich drunk dad just left her and her baby Lulu in a shady section of Chicago without a phone, money of anything. She has no choice but to find a phone to call someone to come for her. She wanders into a bar that just happens to belong to the Gallo family and Lucio quickly takes responsibility for her and her precious baby. Delilah needs to thank her lucky stars that her dad threw her out near the Hook & Hustle bar, because this family treats her better than her family ever has. I loved this book and the characters, and cannot wait to read more!
