Hook is the third book in the Men of Inked: Southside series and features Angelo Gallo.
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 mine.
A past that neither of us can truly escape.
Now that I have her, I’ll do anything to keep her.
Have you met the newest Gallos?
Review by Tara
Being away from someone you love is hard, but when death takes them from your life, it’s devastating. Trying to find a happy place takes time, but when you share the same experience with someone, it can make the transition easier.
“Anyone who’s been through losing a spouse will know the insanity that follows. Emotions change quicker than the direction of the wind, and there’s no warning before the anger suddenly strikes or the sadness becomes unbearable.”
Angelo and Tilly have experienced the worst heartache in their few years on this earth, losing their partner in life, and being left to pick up the pieces. When these two meet, sparks fly, but guilt plaques each of them. Both still mourning their losses, they struggle to come to terms with “moving on”. With a little help from their friends and family, Angelo and Tilly take the leap. With each other’s help, can they resurface from the dark and find light and happiness again?
“An intense connection that’s there and undeniable, but there are so many complications in our past, it stops us from acting. We’re in a constant state of immobility. Trapped by the memories of someone who’s no longer here.”
Hook had me crying! More that once. There is so much love and emotion in each word that Chelle wrote in Hook. Each memory that the characters have pulls at your heart strings so much, you cannot help but to cheer them on. I also love that some of Chelle’s past characters make an appearance in Hook!
“There’s no controlling the pace at which it happens or containing the powerful punch to the gut when everything clicks. Love is love, and there’s nothing we can do to stop it.”

Review by Tara
“It was all for nothing. Him. Me. The hurt. It was all for nothing.”
Hooray for this book!!! Tears of Glass is the followup to Tears of Ink (read them in order!!!) and I am still reeling from it!
“What am I doing? He broke me. Not just a little bit. He smashed me, made me love, and then destroyed it like a mirror falling from up high. But then there’s him, and the way he feels; the way with him every touch, every single shred of a moment, seems right.”
Faith is the ultimate female character. So strong, yet vulnerable, independent but willing to give love a chance. Faith’s skin tells a story. It displays all the hurt and pain she has suffered. When her heart is broken, one last piece is placed over her heart. A heart that Faith is determined to leave broken. Elijah has had it all….perfect childhood, money, career of a lifetime. But losing Faith is the worst thing to have ever happened to him. Losing her was something that had to happen, in order to keep Faith and his sister safe. But can Faith and Elijah prove to the world that love will win?
“People walking past stare, but I don’t have it in me to care. To care what people think when they see me, when they see the expression of my past inked onto skin. I just care about him. Him and I.”
Each character that Anna has created helps the story flow flawlessly. Each one brings something to this incredible book. Tears of Glass is powerful, and emotional and will hold your attention from the first to the last word. Promise me that you will read Tears of Ink before you read Tears of Glass!!
