Hook is the third book in the Men of Inked: Southside series and features Angelo Gallo.
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 mine.
A past that neither of us can truly escape.
Now that I have her, I’ll do anything to keep her.
First off, before you even START this book, grab tissues. This is an emotional tearjerker that had be bawling like a baby 6% in to the story. It’s beautiful, sexy, funny, and keeps with Chelle’s theme of family throughout her books. I adore the Gallo’s, and this bunch is no different. Angelo and Tilly are two of the most beautifully broken characters I think Chelle has ever written. They reminded me of Bruno and Callie from Enshrine. And if you haven’t read that one…DO IT!
Ok, back to Angelo and Tilly. Let’s start with Tilly. I loved her. Like total girl crush on her. I like how she is independent, sassy, yet vulnerable and fragile, all at the same time. Now Angelo. Chelle Bliss has a knack for writing alphas. She has a way of making them cocky, arrogant, likable, sexy, and just overall good men, that makes each one my favorite. Add a single dad in the mix, and I melt. Angelo is a total softie when it comes to his kids. His little girl, Tate, has him wrapped around her finger. She reminds me a lot of Izzy. If this is a saga, her book should be interesting, lol. His vulnerability after losing his wife will pull at your heart. He loved her. totally loved her. And losing her could have broken him, but he stayed strong for his children.
These two characters together couldn’t be more perfect for each other. they have an understanding of what the other is going through that no one else could have. It makes you realize that sometimes you are given a second chance and there isn’t a damn thing wrong with embracing it, you just have to be at peace with yourself.
There is so much story packed in these pages that i can’t give it justice, you just have to read the book.
