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.

Holy smokes Chelle brought back one of my favorite book families! The Gallos are back! And man did she bring them back insanely hotter! Once I started reading, I could not put it down! She made me want more! This book is written in dual POV and I loved knowing the thoughts of both Lucio & Delilah. It’s intense, family-packed, and sexy as all get out!

Delilah is from the wealthier side of Chicago and used to the finer things in life. But she learned at a young age, money doesn’t mean happiness. She is a sweet, kindhearted woman who has been beaten down by life, but she’s also a survivor who can be fierce when backed into a corner.

Lucio is a Gallo and being a Gallo means a lot. He is one of the owners of the Hook and Hustle bar in Southside Chicago. He is all tatted up with sculpted muscles and has no problem with the ladies. He’s just living day by day. Family means everything to him and so does the neighborhood he grew up in.

Delilah stumbles into the Hook & Hustle bar simply because it’s the closest building and she needs to use a phone. At her first glimpse of Lucio she is tongue-tied and lust-struck. He activated tingles she hadn’t felt in a very long time. But she’s not looking for love, she’s in survival mode.

Seeing her struggle, Lucio suddenly feels very protective of her. Their attraction to one another is magnificent and everyone around them saw what was happening. Yeah, there are plenty of Gallos to stick their noses into each other’s business and I love that they have no filter.

Will Delilah follow her heart or her family’s money? Will Lucio be able to “lock her down”? Wouldn’t it be fun to watch a Gallos version of Family Feud? There would sure be a lot of ‘beeping’, huh?

This book is absolutely fabulous! I can not wait to see what is in store for the rest of the Southside Gallo family. The next book in the series is Flow. I’m super curious who of the three siblings it will be! Simply amazing Chelle, as always!
