Omg I’m so happy to be back with the Gallo’s and I was so excited that the part of the family from Chicago are getting their own series and let me tell you Chelle Bliss did not disappoint with book one in her new Men of Inked: Southside series if this book is anything to go by this series is shaping up to blow our minds......... Lucio Gallo meets Delilah when she stumbles into his bar with her baby and nothing but the clothes she is standing in and like all the Gallo’s we have meet before this is where Lucio steps up and shows Delilah that there are men out there who will help in anyway they can. Delilah’s ex left her when he found out she was pregnant and up til now she has been living with her acholic father but the night she stumbles into the Gallo’s bar is the night her life is about to change for the better..... I love this family in fact with every book I read I feel closer and closer to the family where loyalty is the number one rule they all live by. The characters have charisma and every couple has sizzling chemistry, this book has everything you can want in a story, love, passion, family loyalty and a few laughs along the way what a great start to a new series.

star Review Maneuver by Chelle Bliss Well I never thought I could or would fall for another Gallo man but Lucio Gallo hits all my buttons and is totally swoon worthy. There is nothing that I did not like about this man, he just does it for me. Although a ladies man, when the right woman comes along and in this case it is single mum Delilah Miles, he knows his is a goner in more ways than one. From the first page until the last I was captivated by their story and truth be told I didn’t want it to end. This was a smoking hot read that ticked all the boxes for me and in my opinion Chelle Bliss has another winner on her hands. The Chicago Gallos are just as family orientated as their southern cousins and just as inked, tempting and hot. They love, play and are loyal to a fault and for me if they would adopt me I would be so happy. When Delilah and her daughter fall on tough times, thanks to her horrible father, she has no idea how walking through the door into the Gallo’s Hook & Hustle South Side bar will change her life. Lucio and his mother Betty immediately offer her unconditional assistance and it is this that shows Delilah what family is meant to be. Betty was such a great character that I cannot wait to see what mischief she gets up to in future books. I love that at the heart of these books is the love of family and what they will do for each other and for those in need. Chelle Bliss writes with a depth of character that at times comes right out of no-where and knocks your socks off and this book was no exception.

Boy how I’ve missed the Gallo family, and even though Maneuver is a spin-off of the OG, their cousins are just as rowdy, just as smart mouthed, and just as controlling and domineering as their Florida counterparts. Book 1 in Chelle Bliss’ Men of Inked: Southside is Lucio Gallo’s story, and I love that Lucio’s introduction to the heroine, Deliah, is reminiscent of a certain kickass couple from the original Men of Inked. From the moment Lucio and Delilah meet and he decides to help her and her young child, they both become honorary Gallo members, and when it’s clear that the attraction between Lucio and Delilah can lead to something they both want and need, the Gallo charm and protective nature comes out and despite some hesitancy by both Lucio and Delilah, it’s beyond clear to readers that they’ve met their ‘one’ and now need to figure out a way to make it forever. At the heart of any Gallo story is the importance of family; they are a tight knit group of caring and loving people who have each other’s back at all costs, and the person who brings them all together, meddling in any way she deems necessary, which proves that Betty, the Southside Gallos’ mother, is just as crazy and loving as Maria. I love that Chelle Bliss decided to go back to her writing roots…back to the family who introduced readers to Bliss’ kickass alpha males and the sassy and sexy women who tame them and make them one woman men. I can’t wait for more stories from these South Side Gallos, and I’m hoping that as readers become more at home with this family that we’ll get the opportunity to catch up with the Florida Gallos because their cousins’ stories make me miss them even more. 4 Poison Apples

Loving this Chicago edition of the original Gallo series!! Delilah is awesome and I know this is going to be a great new series. Sexy, heartwarming and funny! You won't be disappointed for sure.

The Gallos are back baby! This is a book where all the fun, sexy, smoking hotness of the Gallos is back in full force! Lucio and Delilah met in the most unlikely of circumstances. But fate has a funny way of bringing people together. I loved watching these two not only grow together with one another but watching the strength of Delilah grow and become something all on her own. This is holy new Gallos clan you are not going to want to miss! I can't wait to see what happens with the rest of this family!

Men of Inked: Southside is off to a fantastic start with Maneuver, I could not put it down. The Gallo family is new to me, since this is only the second book that I have read by Chelle Bliss, but I have a remedy for that. Since I haven't read Men on Inked and this series is a spin-off from that, I guess I need to start from the first book and keep reading. Lucio and Delilah meet under stressful circumstances, her rich drunk dad just left her and her baby Lulu in a shady section of Chicago without a phone, money of anything. She has no choice but to find a phone to call someone to come for her. She wanders into a bar that just happens to belong to the Gallo family and Lucio quickly takes responsibility for her and her precious baby. Delilah needs to thank her lucky stars that her dad threw her out near the Hook & Hustle bar, because this family treats her better than her family ever has. I loved this book and the characters, and cannot wait to read more!

A whole new series begins but for some reason the characters all feel like long time friends. We've known the Gallos family from Florida for years, but their cousins from Chicago are just as family focused and everyone knows they can depend on each other to have their backs. Maneuver focuses on Lucio and Delilah and lets now forget baby Lulu, but the family plays such a huge part. I have to say I would be happy to take Lucio hoe with me but he and Delilah are perfect together. Time to fall in love all over again with the Gallo family, only this time it's the Chicago branch.

I enjoyed reading this story. I love that Lucio rescue a single mom with a baby. I wish this story was longer and had a little more drama with Delilah's father and her baby's father but that is just my opinion and I am giving it 5 Stars . I recommend this book and the author!!!!!

All man should be like Lucio Maneuver is currently my favorite from Ms. Chelle Bliss. All man should be like Lucio. He is not only pleasing in the eyes but hard worker and has a heart of gold. I never though that Men Inked series stopped by the author give her reader another delicious series that will blow your mind away and also your e-reader. I loved Delilah, my kind of girl who is not afraid to fight not only for herself but her baby girl as well. Born from a golden spoon to basically homeless in one night. This girl is a fighter. She has enough crap from the men and now willing to stand with her own two feet to survive. Maneuver is a beautiful book about family, triumph, love and survival. I cannot wait to read the 2nd book from this series. Ms. Chelle Bliss you did again. You are one amazing author. I super loved and enjoyed reading Maneuver.

Delilah and baby daughter Lulu have been dumped out on the side of the road late at night by her alcoholic father, She goes into a bar thats owed by Lucio and his brothers and sister its the only one open on the street late at night, They have an insta-attraction thats it want to no more you just have to ONE-CLICK NOW to read there story in full. You will not be disappointed when you read this, I won an ARC copy.

Lucio is hotter than hell! Love this branch of the Gallo Family. Delilah is one strong lady. When she and Lulu walk into Lucio's life he is gone! Love Betty too. Looking forward to learning more about her and Santino

OH MY GALLO! Sweet & Sexy! An intriguing romance that is steamy hilarious and swoon-worthy. Lucio and Deliah's story is the perfect example of how some of the best things in life happen when you least expect them and what happens to the two of them is lots of sexual tension, sweet tender moments and loads of laughs. Maneuver is a spin-off of Men of Inked and it has everything that I love about that series. I Love the hero's alpha ways, the "that could be me" heroine and especially the family dynamics. I love all the new characters from the Gallo family to the bar patrons. I can't help having a little crush on the mystery man Santino who has been mentioned in past books he's definitely piqued my interest. This is a great start to the Southside series and I can't wait for more of him and the rest of the Gallos. So Good!!

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.

Delilah is one strong fierce woman. Love how Delilah finds her inner strength and turns her life around for herself and her daughter.. Lucio is one amazing compassionate man. He goes above and beyond to help Delilah and Lulu out. What neither of them plan on happening is the connection they have to each other. What a way to find instant love. What an amazing story of strength and love.

This is a really good start to this new series. Great characters and a quick paced storyline. Were introduced to a new family within the Gallo name and they seem like their going to be lots of fun. They've got a fun family dynamic and I think each book is going to be better than the one before. Lucio is super hot and super strong. His core values and his passion for right and wrong are his best qualities. He's in the perfect place to help out a damsel in distress and luckily for Delilah she walks into the right bar. She's been put into an impossible situation and she's so lucky that she picked the right door to walk through. They've got instant chemistry and his reactions and behaviour towards lulu make you feel how good and pure his soul is. He steps up when he truly doesn't need too, Delilah's heart doesn't stand a chance of not falling for him. There's lots of swoon-worthy moments. It's a fun, sexy, enjoyable story from start to finish and I've already recommended it to several friends. Can't wait for the next book!

The Gallo family is back! I absolutely loved this book!! It is such a good love story! As always, just like the Men of Inked series, these Southside Gallo's have a big wonderful family with so much love to give. They have fun sure but they are also always there for each other through thick and thin as well as willing to help others outside their family. Lucio Gallo is hot, sexy and very protective. In fact from the instant Delilah walks into his bar one night carrying baby Lulu, he decides he needs to help and protect them. What he didn't plan on was falling for them. The three of them are adorable together and make such a sweet little family. Things do get a little dicey when someone from Delilah's past shows up but Lucio takes care of that situation like a pro. Although Delilah is no slouch when it comes to protecting herself and Lulu. I love Lucio and Delilah as a couple so much; they are perfect for each other! Lucio's mom Betty is the bomb!!! She is a true matriarch and I just love her. This family rocks! I can't wait for more!

One of my favorite series ever (many many re-reads) is Men of Inked, with their crazy tight loving family (and uber hot men). So I can’t even explain how ecstatic I was to hear that the Gallo’s were back, but this time the Chicago family. It starts off with an oh my gosh moment, and just takes off running from there. Delilah is a pillar of strength, even when put in a situation no mother ever wants to find herself in. Strong and brave and loving. She meets Lucio who is generous and caring and protective (let’s not forget hot & yummy!) A moment of kindness turns into a world of more. You can’t help but fall in love with this family, with Lucio and his amazing self, Delilah and her incredible strength, Lulu with all her adorableness, and of course Betty. Ya gotta love Betty. I completely loved this book. I’m so happy it’s the first of many (lots & lots, right Chelle? ;) ), and that we’ll get to know the Chicago Gallos as well as the Florida Gallos. I can’t wait to read more!! Hurry up and get started!!!

It's all about the Gallo's baby!!!! Maneuver was absolutely without a doubt unputdownable! I devoured every page like my life depended on it because Lucio and Delilah's story was every bit alluring and captivating. Lucio Gallo was the definition of playboy extraordinaire, definitely a heart of gold(but doesn't want anyone to know), loves his ma and family no matter how frustrating they are. Delilah is the strong, gorgeous woman with the cute little bundle of joy Lulu who captures the heart of one Lucio Gallo. Delilah and Lulu were not what Lucio was looking for but quickly realized they were everything he wanted. This is one read you won't be able to part with it was that damn good!!

Oh, I have missed this family!!! It was so fun meeting another branch of the Gallo family. They seem just as crazy, just as fun as the family some many of us have come to love. At the beginning of this book I was a little worried about Delilah, she seemed so timid. But once she got her feet under her she really bloomed! She showed that she would be able to hold her own in such a boisterous, loud, crazy family. And Lucio, WOW!!! Such a Gallo, through and through!!! From the very beginning, he was protective and tender with Delilah and Lulu. And that quickly grew to so much more. How could I not fall in love with a big, tattooed, bike riding man who loves babies? I can't wait to follow along with the rest of the Chicago Gallo's and see where their stories will go!!!

Welcome to another branch of the Gallo family.... and they didn't disappoint!! They have the same family togetherness, spunk, sassiness, and lovable characters. But they are different as well, there's more trouble following these guys. This was Lucio and single mom Delilah's story. They were so adorable but also very sexy together. This was a terrific beginning to a new series!

More Gallos? Um hell yes please. I found the author through the first Men of Inked series and fell in love. If you've read the series then you are familiar with the loud, protective family the Gallo's are, well now it's time to meet the Chicago cousins, an let me tell you it was like coming home. You have Mama Gallo who everyone respects, loud siblings who can't keep their noses out of each others business and the same fierce protectiveness I adored in the previous series. This is Lucio's book an lord did he take me back to everything I loved about the Gallo's, what made me pray the author released just one more book about them. His and Delilah's story starts off with a familiar ring to it (I'm not telling but if you've read the other series and remember the beginning you'll see the small similarity) She's on her own and Lucio steps in to help. Only the more he helps the less he wants to let her go... There is so much I could say about this book but most importantly this book while being the start of a new series with all new characters and a new town it felt like home. Even though the original series characters aren't mentioned I still felt like they could pop through the door any second an fit right in. I didn't think I'd love them as much as the first Gallo's but I was wrong, I see this series being just as addictive!

Maneuver once again reminded me just how much I love that Gallo clan. Chelle Bliss created a truly sweet story featuring Lucio Gallo, his crazy arse family and a woman who somehow finds her way into his life when he least expects it. There is complete and utter joy as the Gallos take in Delilah and her infant daughter Lulu after she finds herself homeless and without a dime to her name. Which is something she never expected to truly happen since she's rich but has an abusive father who can't hold his liquor. This big, beautiful Italian family didn't even hesitate when Delilah needed a hand and I was thrilled that they claimed her for their own the minute they laid eyes on her and her adorable daughter. I had no doubt Lucio would fall for Delilah just as much as she fell for him but their journey is clearly filled with doubt and situations out of their control. I loved that Bliss once again uses that unmistakable Gallo charm and honesty we've all experienced before in prior books to make things happen. Dee's transformation to becoming one of the family was great fun to watch. I love that the author has expanded into a new series with the completely lovable, brash but very loyal extended Gallo family. Sure to put a smile on your face, Maneuver is the perfect summer read. 4 huge stars!
