Tour Stop and Review – Without Me by Chelle Bliss



I’d led a selfish existence.

I liked who I was. Hell, I loved myself.
Women threw themselves at me and I took what they offered without remorse. I promised them nothing.
I sank my teeth into life, holding on to the bitch like my very existence depended on it.

Time passed.
Women came and went.

The second I let my guard down and released the hold I had on life… What was my award for such carelessness?
A love so spectacular and heart wrenching that it threw me for a loop. When I was in too deep to escape, my greatest fears became reality.

This is my story. My downfall. My salvation.

This is the final book in the Men of Inked series.  (Boohoo I loved the Gallo men).

This is Anthony’s story, the oldest of the Gallo children.  He does not do relationships.  He is your typical man whore, who has his fun and then moves on.  Until Maxine.  She changes everything for Anthony.  Their attraction is nothing like Anthony has ever experienced.  The challenges they have to face may be the same ones that prevent them from having a future.

This is a hard one for me to review.  I really did not want this series to end.  When I started reading this, it was, in my opinion, very slow.  When I read the other Gallo books, I felt like I couldn’t put them down.  But with Anthony’s book, I could put it down.  Honestly, I thought the epilogue was the best part and it made everything else worth it.  I can see how the author needed to build you up so you could fall in love with Anthony and understand the challenges that he had to deal with in order to have Maxine in his life.

Totally love how Chelle Bliss took a “not socially accepted” twist and dealt with it with class.  The world would be a much better place if everyone could accept people regardless of race, religion and social standing.  Kudos to Ms. Bliss.  For that reason alone the book is worth reading!


I’m so sad that Without Me is the final chapter of the Gallo Family saga.  But without a doubt Anthony was saving the BEST for last.  Chelle Bliss hit it out of the park, oh heck, touchdown, goal, homerun and hat trick! The best of the best in my eyes.

Anthony Gallo was a self-centered jackass.  He used and abused women to satisfy his needs and didn’t care who he hurt in the process. Until the night he met her, Max, that gorgeous, sexy as hell woman who wouldn’t give him the time of day.  That only made him want her more, and faced with a challenge the game was on.

Max had a life plan and Anthony Gallo was not part of it in any way.  She wanted no part of a relationship or one night stand.  Throughout the book, she fights what her heart is telling her she should just accept, and the banter and back and forth is pretty entertaining.  Max is a total b*tch towards Anthony, and it is hard to take, but knowing that karma is kicking his ass makes it pretty funny at times.

Some of the sexual encounters between these two are actually funny.  Max is the perfect girl for Anthony, keeps him on his toes, and makes him realize that living like a man-whore isn’t all it is cracked up to be.

The way that Anthony sticks by Max and promises her that he will be there for her no matter what caught me in the heart.  This book had me laughing, crying, and hoping in a matter of minutes.  This was a total do not put me down until you are finished book!!  If you haven’t read the Gallo’s, go #gettaclicking and fall in love!
