Never read the Men of Inked series? This is a great introduction to the series or an addition for current readers. This is a SHORT story featuring the entire Gallo family and told from Mr. & Mrs. Gallo’s point of view. The Gallos are a loving Italian family filled with alpha males and one sassy sister.

Bs Review

Chelle Bliss introduces readers to the quirky, hilarious Gallo family with The Gallos: The Beginning. This fast, fun read is a great way to get to know Maria, Sal and their colorful children before diving into the Men of Inked series. You’ll get a feel for this lovable, crazy family and their different personalities along with enjoying a more intimate look at Maria and Sal’s relationship. I loved seeing them happily married, still very much in love and passing along love advice to their wild, perpetually single children in the way only parents can.

“When you find that—the one person who makes your day complete—that’s the one you hold on to. Life can never be boring when you find your soul mate, like I found my Maria.”

Already being familiar with the Gallos myself, this was simply a fun reminder of what I love about this fantastic family. Since it was released so far into the series, I think I was expecting a bit more depth in terms of Maria and Sal’s romance and how the Gallos ended up in Florida from Chicago. However, it was still very much an enjoyable treat that perfectly captured the Gallo’s unique dynamic and further endeared them to me. Complete with Chelle Bliss’ signature mix of sweetness and steam, The Gallos: The Beginning is a sexy, sassy short that will have you raring to devour the Men of Inked series.

Cs Review

For fans of the Men of Inked series, The Gallos is such a sweet look into the head of the Gallo family. As someone who read the series first and this prequel short story second, it made me smile and warmed by heart to get this peek into Sal and Maria’s relationship. I’ve known just how much the parents of these siblings have loved each other but that firsthand insight certainly made me realize just how much. Though I did enjoy this short story, I didn’t really get much out of it given that I’m already familiar with the characters. However, if you haven’t been introduced to them, The Gallos gives a perfect set up for each of the siblings that you’ll meet in the series, as well as a taste for the trouble they are capable of getting themselves into. Chelle Bliss has created one of my favorite romances that follows siblings and their transformations with the Gallo family, and I love that I got to be a part of it again for even just a short period of time!
