Hook by Chelle Bliss Book Summary
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.

Hook (Chelle Bliss) Book Reviews
“A man like him is meant to be savored.”The Gallo family reminds me of my own Italian family; full of love and always hosting a big family dinner on Sundays that everyone must attend. They also mourn very deeply when someone they love passes, which is the case with Angelo and his beloved late wife, Marissa. His children are his top priority and he is unsure how they would feel if he started dating. He doesn’t feel it is the right time to be with anyone but from the moment he first saw Tilly, he knew his life would never be the same. Tilly is an angel in his eyes and she makes people smile and lights up every room that she enters. She has warmed his sad and broken heart and he finally felt that he could look forward to a future of love and happiness. Tilly mourns her late husband every day but when Angelo stepped into her cupcake shop her heart skipped a beat, her skin tingled, and life looked a little brighter. Where had he been all of her life? Did Angelo come into her life for a reason and was he the man who will make her smile and keep her safe? My heart broke for Angelo as I began reading this passionate and hopeful story about a grief-stricken couple who weren’t looking for love when they met. They were just taking one day at a time, one step at a time, toward a new life filled with the possibility of a second chance at love..Romance213Score: 5/5
Angelo & Tilly RockThe reading of Hook may require a box of tissues be close at hand. Angelo and Tilly both have dealt with loss in their past and moving on isn't going to be easy but this story is so touching and heartwarming it had my heart melting by the end. What a great story, the Gallo's family strong bonds, love, loss, renewed strength, and loving friends, then we thrown in the adorable little girl (Tate) and this story is magic..Shelleigh71Score: 5/5

LovedI have really been loving this series. Unfortunately I did not heed the warning of the author and decided to read this at work.. Not good to be crying when you are at work..LOL Now from the get go I fell on love with Angelo in the previous books. So I was excited to see a book come out about him. He had this special place in my heart how he was a single father just trying to survive. I loved Tilly. She had so much energy and life. You would not know her struggles just by looking at her. I loved how she spoke her mind and you knew where you stood. I loved Roger that was in this story. He was funny and very protective of Tilly. He truly had her best interested at heart. I loved the whole Gallo family and we can not forget Tate. I so love when an author brings the the kids into the story and gives them a personality and let me tell you Tate had a personality. I loved reading the connection that was between Angelo and Tilly and how they truly knew what the other was gong through. They were a perfect match for each other. This was and amazing story and one I am glad I got a chance to read..Racy CarrScore: 5/5
All the emotions!!I’m going to tell yo straight out, make sure you have tissues handy. This was such an emotional ride, don’t be be surprised when tears are streaming down your face., many times. Torn up in the prologue then slowly put back together throughout, although still with tears. Angelo & Tilly will have your emotions all over. There’s the crying, which I’ve mentioned lol, but there are also heart warming moments, laughs, and a little spitfire you can’t get enough of. It was beautiful reading about these two broken people who find each other, and amazingly help put each other back together. I truly love this story, this couple, this family. Definite must read.Rinsky13Score: 5/5
Another Southside hit!Love these Gaallo men so hard!!!! They just don’t make them like that in real life lol so I’ll keep enjoying them in the pages of some of my favorite books! Angelo has been so intriguing to me since the first Southside book...the only complaint I have is that it wasn’t longer. Tilly and Angelo fell in love very fast, though soul mates, it was fast...the ending was a little quick for me too. I absolutely loved their story but could have used more of it. Of course I adore all the secondary characters too...cute little Tate! Definitely recommend the series, book and author! Can’t wait for Vinnies story! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.Lb2bnmvScore: 5/5

All the feelsThis book ripped me in two, chewed me up then put me back together just to rip me up all over again. Love, love, loved Angelo and Tilly!

5 stars are definitely not enough for this bookWarning!!! You will need at least half a box of tissues to read this book! Maybe more!!! And you will need them from the beginning!!! The feeling you will feel before you even get done with the prologue will be INTENSE!!! It's no secret that I love Chelle Bliss' books. I've read almost everything she's written and loved them! But this one is right up there at the top, next to Enshrine! Angelo and Tilly are perfect! Not just for each other, although that is a given, but also for the others in their lives. These two beautifully broken souls couldn't be more right for each other. The losses they have endured have definitely worked to make them the only ones that would understand just what the other was going through and needed. Ms. Bliss captured the pain and the beauty of new love perfectly. And Mama Gallo! I've always loved the elder Gallo women and Betty Gallo is hilarious! And Tate! So adorable and so much sass and spunk!!! I hope she will get her own story someday! Anyway, 5 stars are definitely not enough for this book but it's all I have to give so it will have to do..RholubScore: 5/5

Beautifully emotional storyMoving on when you lose the love of your life is beyond difficult, and is one thing both Milo and Tilly had to do. Although it was hard, they were able to lean on each other and grieve for their respective losses together. Even though I shed a lot of tears, I laughed and loved with these two. This is one of my favorite books from Chelle, you could definitely feel the emotion coming through story. I’m so in love with the Gallo family, and I feel like a part of them when I’m reading. Make sure you have tissues ready with this one! This is already one of my top reads this year!.Beckera_annScore: 5/5

Best of the bestHook is the third book in the Men of Inked Southside series and I think this would have to be the best of the best. A story of two broken people, torn between the pain of the past and the guilt of the future. However it sometimes takes two halves of the same torment to complete a whole worth fighting for. Angelo and Tilly's story is emotional and at times coats your soul in darkness and light all at the same time. Tears will be shed, laughter will erupt when you least expect it to but ultimately this book will steal your heart. Just be warned it will not only be these two that find their way deep into your heart, it might just be one feisty little character that steals the show. Hook is a book of second chances, moving forward, learning to love again and craving lots and lots of cake..Books Rock My WorldScore: 5/5
Brilliant ReadThis 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..Jaxwright57Score: 5/5
Seriously, how can you not love a Gallo’s manI haven’t met a Gallo’s man I haven’t loved yet, and Angelo is beyond lovable. He is everything we have come to love in all these beautiful men but so much more, he has loved and lost and this alone makes him more, so much more. Tilly is the one, the one that Angelo can love without guilt or regret because she is made just for him. She is the other half of his beautifully broken hear, they are destined for each other, a gift from their first loves. And what a beautiful gift it is, if only everyone was this lucky. Chelle NEVER disappoints when it comes to the Gallo’s family, I loved it so much I read it in one sitting..ZakmariaScore: 5/5
My Absolute Favourite Chelle Bliss Book5 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..Erin Lewis aka Maimeo'sScore: 5/5

My favourite so far!This was just perfect! I’ve been waiting for Angelo’s story since this spinoff series began and I wasn’t disappointed at all. It was so good, I loved how loyal these two characters are with their pasts and how much it shaped everything that they did. They were so in tune with each other, even though there’s a lot of sadness I thoroughly enjoyed their story..Tilly212Score: 5/5

Love the GallosThis is the third book in the Men of Inked:Southside series and while I feel that you would benefit from reading the series in order, it is not required and this can be read on a stand alone basis. I really enjoyed Hook and I would say it has been my favorite book of the series so far. It's a book that is full of all the feels from the get go and as we see two people come together and embrace their second chance at love after loss. Angelo and Tilly had great chemistry and I was equally enamored by both. It's a touching and heartfelt read but this is the Gallos and that family sure know how to step in to provide some humor and light relief. Another enjoyable read from this series and I look forward to Vinnie's story next..Danny JeffsScore: 4/5
