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?
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.

I'm a big fan of the Men of Inked series so I was over the moon to find out that Chelle was bringing us more from the Gallo's.
As you can imagine this was a super sexy read and a really nice easy book to read. The story was engaging and flowed really well, although there were times where I wished the story had been fleshed out a little more. Chelle really succeeds in delivering the close knit family feel that you can't help but fall for and I look forward to more from the other family members.
Lucio was an absolute sweetheart and someone I easily warmed to and Delila had an inner strength that really shines through that means you instantly want great things for her. They had great chemistry together, however, for me their relationship was a little too insta for my tastes and after that initial boom, I would have liked for things to have slowed down a little and develop on a deeper level.
All in all though, a nice start to a new series and I certainly look forward to more from the Southside.
I was provided with a copy of this book from the Publisher; there was no inducement or obligation.
Another great book can't wait for the next one 😊
The story lune is a sprint. No slowing down. It’s like all the ideas need to fit in a number of words. His character is so dull, yes for everything.
For a paying book, I expected better.
