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.
USA Today bestselling author Chelle Bliss currently lives in a small town near the Gulf of Mexico. She’s a full-time writer, time-waster extraordinaire, social media addict, and coffee fiend. She’s written over ten books and has two series available. She loves spending her free time with her boyfriend, 2 cats, and her hamster.
Before becoming a writer, Chelle taught high school history for over ten years. She holds a master’s degree in Instructional Technology and a bachelor’s in History. Although history is her first love, writing has become her dream job and she can’t imagine doing anything else.
It has been quite a while since I read a book like this. One that will leave you sitting, staring a way, reflecting, as tears fall down your face, wondering what in the world the author just put you through. Last time I had that happen, I had just read TAKING CHANCES by Molly McAdams, and let me tell you what. That book ripped me. It ripped me in half. Literally. For days, I wandered around in a stupor, reflecting on it. Chelle Bliss has just done that to me again with this book.
I cried. I got angry. I got happy. I cried again, got angry, threw my Kindle once, and wanted to call up Ms. Bliss and ask her why she insisted on torturing me. But, I didn’t. I read on. I fell in love with Angelo, hook, line and sinker. His tortured soul after his wife passed away, oh my gosh, I wanted to be there to put his pieces back together for him. And Tilly…….bless. Her pain was my pain.
It takes an incredibly talented author to hold me like that. To make me feel every. Single. Emotion. This book getting 5 stars in not justice enough. It needs way more than that. This book is definitely coming recommended from me with the highest of highs and hats off, and all the glory that can possibly be given to it. Ms. Bliss, I can not wait for another incredible story like this one and hope that all the feels are wrapped up in the next one just like this one. Well done.
