You’re talking to a bunch of jocks and housewives, sweetheart. We barely write, let alone read. She slides her hands down his thick neck to his shoulders. “Solid frame. Good genes.

Accidents happen, handsome.” I motion for her to give the book back. “But I want to finish it and yours too.” “Is Vinnie Gallo a secret romance lover?” “Shut your mouth. Don’t you dare tell anyone.” My Review: If in need of a quick, light, spicy, and irreverently amusing read, Hustle will put a smirk on your face and a kick in your pulse rate – this couple had sizzle and snap. Written in my favorite dual POV, the storylines were easy to follow and humorously entertaining while laced with sensual steam naughty levity, and bawdy talking characters. I enjoy the rowdy Gallos and am highly amused by the ingeniously uncommon element of an Italian mother who cannot cook.

    Sissy's Romance Book Review

    Hustle by Chelle Bliss is book four in the Men of Inked: Southside Series. This is the story of Vinnie and Bianca. I have read the previous book, but feel this can be a standalone book. Vinnie and Bianca agree to a mutual arrangement where she pretends to be his girlfriend to keep a stalker girl from bother him and he will attend some of her family events. Of course nothing goes as planned and feelings start to become further engaged. This was a funny hot read...really enjoyed it.

    Vinnie Gallo is known for playing the field both with women and on the football field. Vinnie has been drafted and is now trying to secure his role as Quarterback on the team. Moving into his penthouse is just the first step on that path but what he doesn't plan for is his feisty neighbor Bianca Hernandez. Bianca is a writer on a deadline and is grumpy at best when she first meets Vinnie. When Vinnie comes to Bianca with a request for help, Bianca has a need for a favor as well.

Vinnie has a stalker who just so happens to be the team owner's Granddaughter. He needs a pretend girlfriend and Bianca fits that need. Bianca comes from a family who wants her happy, but her Mother believes she needs to be set up which is how Vinnie comes into the picture. Feelings quickly arise though when Bianca and Vinnie spend more time together and Vinnie has no doubt in his mind that Bianca is his girl, now he just needs t convince her. This was a lot of fun. I had wondered what Vinnie's story would entail as he is such a randy player in previous books and his story did not disappoint. Bianca is great and I liked the cultural differences between the family dynamics, it just made the story more delightful. Terrific read.

    5 star Review Hustle ( Men of Inked: Southside #4) by Chelle Bliss I was certain that nobody could top Angelo Gallo but I have to say that Vinnie Gallo has certainly come close, in fact it may well be a tie. Vinnie Gallo is a special man and it takes a unique woman to capture and hold his heart; Bianca Hernandez is just such a woman. Chosen as a first draft pick for his hometown team, Vinnie is living the dream, well if he could get rid of his stalker that is.

Vinnie Gallo is a special man and it takes a unique woman to capture and hold his heart; Bianca Hernandez is just such a woman. Chosen as a first draft pick for his hometown team, Vinnie is living the dream, well if he could get rid of his stalker that is. As soon as Hustle landed on my device, I dove in and did not come up until I had finished it. From the first chapter I was totally riveted, I really fell hard and fast, not only for Vinnie but Bianca as well. These two are meant to be together and the story that Ms.Bliss wove had me invested in their happily ever after from the start. Both Vinnie and Bianca need assistance, as he is desperate to get a crazed stalker off his back, he and Bianca enter into an arrangement to help one another. She will help him by pretending to be his girlfriend, if he acts as a date for a family function. Nothing goes to plan for these two as neither want commitment. However, the chemistry between Vinnie and Bianca is so intense, they cannot ignore it. I loved how confident, hot and swoon worthy Vinnie is and I particularly liked the determination, sassy and feistiness of Bianca. It was intriguing to read the interactions between Vinnie and Bianca and of course his crazy,interfering family are always outrageous (throw in Bianca’s grandmother who is almost as bad as his mum) and you know that there are going to be laughs, which adds another layer to the story. I also thoroughly enjoyed the way Ms.Bliss and Bianca made Vinnie really work for this happily ever after. I love the Gallo family and when I start a new book it feels like I am coming home. They are all such great characters and Hustle is an awesome example of the love of family and what they will do for each other and those they care about. This was a hot, steamy story, full of emotions which will keep you on the edge of your seat.

    Vinnie is living his dreams by finally getting to play in the NFL. Although he gets to play in the NFL there is one drawback to all of this. Vinnie meets his new neighbor but they don’t hit it off so well. Bianca is a writer and doesn’t take to well to her new neighbor. They both find themselves in a bind and need some help but they aren’t ready for instant chemistry and fire they have between them. Will they both be ready to lay it out on the line for one another?

Vinnie was use to a certain type and Bianca wasn’t that type just give in to each other and spoke her mind. I also loved how Vinnie brought out another side to Bianca. This book was everything I was looking for.

    I have no idea where to begin...Vinnie's story has now become my favorite. He's the youngest Gallo in Chicago. He's got the world at his feet. He was chosen first round draft for his hometown team....His true dreams are becoming a reality. Is it an easy ride for him. Absolutely not. The poor guy is on a roller coaster. The ups can be very stressful, but those downs really re leave stress, And let me just say the way he handles the stress is a surprise.

Bianca is truly the perfect fit for this Gallo. She's tough. Though when she met him her life was a bit messed up. But for 2 people who never though they wanted a commitment, they each threw the other off balance

    Mhmm smoldering! Hustle is so good. It's sexy and fun. Feisty. I love the passionate build-up, the tension from others and the HOT romance. Vinnie Gallo is so intense with his magnetism and Bianca, Gah she is a Spitfire. I love her and her attitude, she knows how to handle this loverboy. These two are full of chemistry and the sparks they create is captivating. I love the family dynamics. The Gallos always manage to make me laugh and want to be a part of their family.

The banter between Bianca and Vinnie had me smiling the whole time. I wish I was her that's for sure. All I kept thinking when I finished Hustle is Please let there be more Gallo's out there! Please, I can never get enough of them. Hustle is fast paced but not rushed. The characters are amazing and lovable. What a great story! A must read.

I never hesitate to jump into a Men Of Inked book by Chelle Bliss and revel in her newest fictional couple. But to say I was ready and willing to get up close and personal with the cocky, youngest member of the new Southside Gallo clan is an understatement. I couldn't wait to see a heroine lasso and tame this Gallo man. Of course with all Chelle Bliss books, the desire hits you from page one and keeps you humming throughout Vinnie and Bianca's story Hustle and has you turning pages as fast as you can. Chelle delivers another love story full of angst, a sassy heroine, a hero hot enough to melt your kindle, and a passion that consumes. Vinnie Gallo had me besotted and caught in his web of smooth talking charms from the moment he was introduced in Manuever and kept me ensnared and waiting anxiously with each new story that Chelle pens in this series. I thought my heart was prepared for this hero but little did I know that his young age has nothing to do with experience in the bedroom because he quickly shows Bianca and readers that age is nothing but a number and has nothing to do with raw sexuality and prowess that he exudes. Bianca Hernandez and her “swearing off men, celibate self” has no idea what is in store for her when she encounters the suave and sexy Vinnie in her apartment elevator. It isn't long before she realizes that her heart and libido are in serious trouble with this quarterback that knows how to score both on and off the field. And if encountering this Gallo and falling prey to his charms isn't enough, his family soon brings her into their fold and she is a complete goner. Chelle Bliss delivers another love story that keeps us warm at the bosom of the Gallo family. I highly recommend Hustle along with the other books in the Men Of Inked: Southside series for a read that has you falling in love all over again with each new character that is introduced. I love a romance that surrounds us with a family that is passionate, boisterous, and loves fiercely and the Gallos always have that whether they are in Florida or Chicago, their love spans distance and time. Chelle Bliss always creates the perfect haven to show once again the beauty of love and how it is germinates, grows and flourishes no matter what the temperature. Although with her characters, it doesn't matter the climate, it is always steamy and more explosive by the moment.

An impassioned love story full of heart, devotion and an intensity that you will never expect from the young Gallo.

    I couldn't get enough of Vinnie and Bianca. These two are so perfect for each other but Vinnie just has to convince Bianca to give him a chance. Vinnie is a rookie football player and Bianca is a romance author. Vinnie has always been a one date person and Bianca has sworn off men for a while so when the two meet for the first time it's unbelievable, neither can keep their eyes to themselves.

    Yes I finally got my hands on Vinnie and I absolutely loved his book!!! I just knew when he found that one special woman she would bring him to his knees.  And Bianca done just that to the playboy. And I loved every single moment of it. But she had swore men off for a bit she was so over being heartbroken by picking only the wrong men. So Vinnie really had to chase her and he is used to women falling at his feet for him. So it was funny to see him have to chase. I love Chelle Bliss' writing and Yes I finally got my hands on Vinnie and I absolutely loved his book!!!

    In this book we have Vinnie, who is the baby of the Gallo siblings. You don't need to read the previous books in the series, as they are all built as standalones. However, it is nice to know some of the characters. Vinnie Gallo's the hottest rookie in professional football. Vinnie has always been great at football, even in his younger years. Vinnie has been picked up by the Chicago Bears as the starting quarterback. Vinnie is moving into his new place, when he runs into a very beautiful woman.

However, it is nice to know some of the characters. Vinnie Gallo's the hottest rookie in professional football. Vinnie has always been great at football, even in his younger years. Vinnie has been picked up by the Chicago Bears as the starting quarterback. Vinnie is moving into his new place, when he runs into a very beautiful woman. Someone he can't take his eyes off of. That woman of course is his new neighbor, Bianca Hernandez. Bianca has lived in the building / penthouse and loves it. She doesn't want Vinnie thinking he can walk all over the nice apartment complex just because he is sexy and good looking. Bianca throws down the rules pretty quickly. She also thinks she's immune to Vinnie's charms. She's not impressed by the glitz, glamour, or fame, but after a six month self-imposed break from men and sex, she feels her resistance slipping. Bianca is a very successful romance writer. She works from home writing daily. She doesn't like being distracted by anything. Vinnie has been stalked by the owners granddaughter - Tracie, for months now. He is tired of her an always having to defend himself against her. Vinnie tells his head coach, that he has a girlfriend and is tired of Tracie and they need to do something about her. The coach asks him to bring his girl to the weekends party so everyone can meet her and that the crazy Tracie can see he is with someone. Vinnie agrees but isn't sure Bianca will accept the invitation. Bianca needs a date for her parents 30 wedding anniversary party. When she hears Vinnie out on his proposal she also asks him for a favor, a date to her party. They both agree to be each other's dates. However, neither of them realize how strongly they are drawn to each other. Will Bianca be able to finish her book while being so close with Vinny? Will Vinny be able to be a star quarterback while being with Bianca? Will Tracie hurt Bianca? Will Tracie hurt his career before it even starts? We don't see much of the Gallo family in this book as we have seen in the past few books. I did receive a free ARC copy of this book. I am freely leaving an honest review.

    The best by far in this Men of Inked: Southside series, Chelle Bliss turns up the heat in this truly tender kind of love story with Hustle. It was hard NOT to love Vincent Gallo and his sexy ways and there was no way Bianca Hernandez could have ever resisted the self-assured rookie football player.

It was hard NOT to love Vincent Gallo and his sexy ways and there was no way Bianca Hernandez could have ever resisted the self-assured rookie football player. From the very first pages, as these two meet and realize they are the only two apartments on the 11th floor, there was a definite spark between them. The newly-professional quarterback and the romance novelist are pure gold together as they start to spend some time together, even as Bianca tries her hardest to keep Vinnie at arm's length. The fiesty latina and the Mama's boy have a fiery chemistry that cannot be ignored. Together with some wildly steamy and dare I say, erotic trysts, these two had me fanning myself as they find themselves falling for the other when that was truly the last thing on either of their minds. Bliss creates the perfect setting for why Vinnie and Bianca have to become closer and it's a battle of wills to see just how fast he can break down her defenses and be able to claim her for his own. Theirs is a surprising kind of romance but was clearly predestined prodded along with the sweet help of a few well-meaning and endearing characters. The Gallo clan together with the Hernandez crew is one helluva boisterous group and I found myself smiling as they are not all that different, just wanting what is best for one of their own. They all provide a ton of comic relief as their protective sides come out to play more than once. I loved every minute of their journey and succumbed to the Vinnie Gallo effect right along with Bianca. You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who could resist that incredible man. He is clearly the book boyfriend his girl could only dream about and write about and she deserves nothing less. With the right amount of angst and true feeling, Hustle is a winner from beginning to end. It deserves 5 stars all the way!

There's a couple of problems though, she has sworn off all men after a run of disastrous relationships and he has a stalker who might just ruin his plans. Conversations are held and deals are made between Vinnie and Bianca - both needing a favour to get them out of sticky situations. Their chemistry is off the charts and their interactions simply sublime. Like all Gallos when it comes to love, Vinnie falls for Bianca hard and fast - now he just has to convince her that they are perfect for one another. Vinnie and Bianca definitely kept me smiling all the way through, there were some hot torrid ice-melting moments and also some wonderful family scenes as well ... for both families. Once again Chelle has brought the Gallo family into my house and I thank her for every word. This was such a wonderful story and a great addition to her amazing series. Vinnie Gallo is the bomb!!!! From beginning to end HUSTLE is superb ... my favourite of the Southside Gallos. Read and Reviewed for Reading Is Our Satisfaction FIVE STARS

    I love the entire Gallo family and it is impossible to pick a favorite, but I found Vinnie sexy and very appealing with his chiseled abs and confident personality. I couldn’t wait to find out what lucky girl would catch his eye and capture his heart. Vinnie never wanted a commitment until he met Bianca and she brought out his soft side and made everyday seem brighter. He is romantic, thoughtful, kind and takes care of Bianca when she is overworked and on a deadline.

I couldn’t wait to find out what lucky girl would catch his eye and capture his heart. Vinnie never wanted a commitment until he met Bianca and she brought out his soft side and made everyday seem brighter. He is romantic, thoughtful, kind and takes care of Bianca when she is overworked and on a deadline. He was glad that Bianca didn’t know who he was and wasn’t impressed by his money and fame. She liked him for the man that he was, deep down inside. Vinnie’s close knit Italian family is something I can relate to and his nurtured upbringing has made him the man he is today. I love when he brings Bianca dinner, helps her with her writing, and always wants to take care of her. It is apparent that Vinnie likes getting his own way but with Bianca, he never pushed her and always treated her lovingly and reverently, as if she could break into a million pieces if something went wrong. I love Bianca because she is motivated, hardworking and close to her family. She is funny, has a great personality and when she first saw Vinnie, she found it hard to talk to him because she was caught up in his sexy hotness. She took her time getting to know him and even though he came on a bit strong, that didn’t deter her from falling for him. As they became closer she learned that he was genuine, fun, a good listener, caring, and was always there for her, which made her feel cherished. My favorite scenes in the book are when Vinnie stops by to see Bianca, shirtless (on purpose), and she is mesmerized by his muscles as he rubs his hand back and forth across his chest. I laughed every time this happened and I don’t blame Bianca for being in awe of him and his body. Their journey was uplifting, full of surprises and sexy moments, and one I will never forget.

    If you haven't met the Gallo family yet, you should be reading them. They are a wild and crazy bunch who believes family, love and loyalty is always first. This is Vinnie's story and it is fantastic. Vinnie is the youngest of the Gallo family living in the south side of Chicago. he has known from a young age that football was his thing and one day he would play for the home team. So he works hard, gets the right grades, great college and gets drafted in the first round by his dream team. Now he j If you haven't met the Gallo family yet, you should be reading them.

So he works hard, gets the right grades, great college and gets drafted in the first round by his dream team. Now he just has to make it in to the starting position. Bianca Hernandez can't believe this guy has the elevator full of moving boxes. And of course he has to move on her floor. She has to stay indifferent because she has sworn off men. But this man is big and looks like he is pure muscle. Will a deal to help each other out push Vinnie and Bianca together? Can she resist all his charms and muscles? Will Vinnie be able to make her see that he is more than a player? I am probably one of the few people that hasn't read all of the Men of Inked series but still love the Men of Inked: Southside series. I have them but need more time in a day to read them as all book lovers do. I found myself not wanting to sleep because I wanted to know what was going to happen next, I was laughing, crying and loving everything about this book. Although Angelo's story is still my favorite, I still love the Southside Gallo's. I recommend you read anything Chelle Bliss has written, you will love them, you can read this series without reading the original Men of Inked series and not be lost. Just read something and enjoy. **I received a free copy of this book to read and review and this is my honest opinion**

Just figured I would start with that, lol! This is the fourth book about the Gallo family and they just keep getting better. Hustle by Chelle Bliss is freaking amazeballz! Bianca and Vinnie have made a pact. They will be each other’s “girlfriend/boyfriend” for certain events for work and for families events. Vinnie needs her on his arm to ward off some crazy stalker-chick who happens to be the team's owner's granddaughter. That chick is cray-cray! One of those "Bye Felicia’s". The bonus, for Vinnie, is Bianca is freaking gorgeous. Which has Vinnie trying to win over Bianca before the pact is up. He also slips into the role of Bianca’s muse and the “body” Bianca needs to work out issues she is having with some of the scenes in the novel she is writing. OMG, have I mentioned she is a romance writer and those scenes with them “working out the issues” are freaking priceless. They are freaking HOT. But Bianca is trying to hold strong. She has sworn off men for a year due to a bad relationship but little does she know how Vinnie would be able to sneak in under that radar. This book is hotter than heck! Vinnie and Bianca have topped the books in this series. This is a standalone, you do not need to read the other books to understand this one, but reading all of them is so worth it. They are strong Italian men raised by a strong Italian family that knows how to take care of their woman. Momma taught them right. ***ARC received in exchange for an honest review***
