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.


I received a copy and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own.

When I read a Chelle Bliss book, I always know what will stand out in my heart more than anything else. Will there be lots of heat? Absolutely, we did say this was a Chelle Bliss book after all. Will there be some twist and turns? Most definitely! But what always resonates with me the most is the family unity in each of her stories. She had us fall madly in love with the Gallos in Men of Inked and now we get to do it all over again with her new Southside series. We are oh so excited and lucky to meet new Gallos that might be just a tad bit wilder, crazier, but with the same huge hearts. Chelle gives us another couple to drool, pant, and obsess over. Trust me, once you meet the Chicago Gallos that own the bar Hook & Hustle and you get up close and personal with Lucio and Delilah, you will never want to close the book and return home. You will want to remain in their fiery embrace forever!

Delilah Miles shows us what the true strength of a mother and a woman looks like from the time we meet her when she is down and out and get to see how she still gets back up on her feet and pushes through for her daughter. She is so much more than just a rich girl on the wrong side of town slumming it. She realizes from the beginning that a family that loves fiercely like the Gallos is worth more than all the gold in the world. This is a girl who needs all the love and compassion that she never received from her own family and Lucio is capable of giving her that and so much more!

Lucio Gallo is yet another muscled, inked, and rough around the edges alpha male that you won’t be able to get enough of! What surprised me the most was underneath all that hotness is a gentle soul and big heart that you just want to cuddle the hell out of. I don’t think one of Chelle’s heroes has ever shown us so much softness underneath all that hard muscle and still made us want to fall at his feet! Such a smooth combination of alpha and big teddy bear had my heart in trouble from the moment Delilah set eyes on him and heard his oh so sexy voice.

Chelle Bliss delivers another amazing, heart melting, desire pumping beginning to a new saga of the Gallo family that will leave you breathless and even more in love with her writing. I highly recommend Maneuver for a romance that punches you in the heart just as hard as it does the libido. Each new story leaves me even more besotted and addicted to Chelle Bliss and her larger than life Gallos. To say that I was beyond giddy to meet the Chicago Gallos is an understatement. I cannot wait to see where Chelle Bliss will take us next into this fictional world. All I know is her story is sure to contain lots of heart, plenty of family, and so much imagery that will set you ablaze and be forever burned into your imagination.
