I lost track of my life.
Spiraling down the rabbit hole, I lost myself and became one of them. Living undercover within the MC, the days bled together as I became absorbed in a life of excess and violence.
Becoming consumed was easy.
Was I Thomas Gallo, good guy and respected cop or Blue, Sergeant-at-Arms of the Sun Devils MC?
Before, I could answer with certainty. But now, there’s a darkness that has settled deep in my soul, fusing with my heart and altering my reality forever.
The road I’ve traveled has been paved with danger, death, and deception.
Roxanne grew up as part of the MC, a victim of her birth. Her life has been treacherous, setting her on a course of torment and destruction.
When our worlds collide, secrets are revealed. Trying to save us from damnation, I fight for redemption and the woman I love.
Throughout the entire Men of Inked series by Chelle Bliss, we have gotten bits and pieces of Thomas. His presence, his influence, and his absence have all been noticed and weighed heavily on the Gallo family. Naturally, it makes readers (me, me at least) very curious as to what he had been going through and what his voice would be like. I am happy to say that Uncover Me does not disappoint and provides everything about the Gallo family you have come to love, with an added flair and satisfaction.
“At what point does a good guy become one of the bad? I felt lost.”
Thomas is just as fierce and loyal as his brothers, but I would also say that he has several other characteristics that make you fall in love with him. He is observant and protective in a similar yet much different way than the other men, particularly when it comes to those he cares about. I also appreciated that while he completely yearned to be home with his family, he didn’t just assimilate back in. While he was welcomed with, quite literally, open arms, he began to question his place and his belonging. Thomas had lived in a different world for so long that you could see how much it wore on his character. I truly loved every little nuance of his personality because of the genuine feel with which he is written in. His confusion and similarities to Angel’s feelings really put him over the top for me!
“Life was about to change. That’s the beauty of it all. Nothing stayed the same for long. Whether good or bad, things could change in the blink of an eye.”
I also adored the introduction of Angel. I loved the opposing personalities of these two because it created such wonderful harmony. Where she had no family or love, he had it in spades. Where she was working a dead end job she hated, he was working harder than anyone could have imagined. Where these two were similar though was their love and I could absolutely feel it. Furthermore, something happened with these two where they helped each other to feel home which resulted in their relationship coming to life for me. One had to put everything on the line and the other had to blindly trust when it came down to it; there was just something that really worked for Angel and Thomas.
“Love changes a person. It doesn’t make us inferior, but it lets us be the person we were truly meant to be. It completes us, brings out our true nature, and helps us become a better version of ourselves.”
One of my favorite parts of Uncover Me was really seeing more of the whole family together. That dynamic is unique and in many senses, idyllic so, as a reader, you get sucked into their world. You understand why the women fall for these men and why the family continues to grow. With every Chelle Bliss book I read, I find myself more and more impressed with her growth and evolving style. Uncover Me is no exception and it is without a doubt her best novel yet. If this book is any indication of where she is headed, I can’t wait to read what the last Gallo, Anthony, has to say!
