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.
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.

Without Me (Men of Inked, #5) by Chelle Bliss is the story of Anthony Gallos. He is the oldest brother of the Gallos siblings. I was told that I could read this book as standalone because I had not read any of the previous books. I did have The Gallos the beginning. I read that book first which helped me to know a little about the entire Gallos family so I had some ideal who all the players were. I am glad I had because I knew who everyone was in Anthony’s story and a little about who he was. Even though Anthony was the eldest of the Gallo siblings he didn’t always act that way. He liked playing in his band, working with his siblings at their tattoo parlor and having a different women in his bed every night. Anthony knew exactly who he was and what he was about and had no problem with who he was. One night changed all that for him and he never saw it coming. She wasn’t like the regular ladies who fell at his feet in fact she did everything she could to ignore him.
This is their story. I truly enjoyed this story. I really love reading books that I hate to put down. I laughed and I cried reading this book and loved every minute of this story. It was over before I knew it. Now I am looking forward to reading all the other previous books. I am curious as to the other sibling’s story. I give this book 5 O’s.
4★★★★.5 Review by Tanya Rae 4★★★★.5
Without Me is Book 5 in the “Men of Inked Series”. I have not read the rest of the books in this series (Although I want to now). I did not find it difficult to read without having read the other books in this series.
Wow you made my head spin with Maxine (Max’s) treatment to Anthony Gallo but, when I found out the reason I began to understand her being scared to make a commitment. No I can’t tell you because I don’t do spoilers and you need to read Without Me.
Anthony at his best was a womanizer never thinking that he was using women until he met Max. He fell head over heels in love with her and she kept him at arm’s length. This is Anthony’s & Max’s story.
This is a biracial romance Max is black (she is a fashion stylist) and Anthony is white & ALL Alpha male! (He is a tattoo artist, works for his family’s business & has many tattoos & piercings, hence “Men of Inked Series”) and I loved their story.
Rest assured by Chelle Bliss that we will see more of the Gallo family! Now I need to go back and read the first 4 books.
This ARC was received for an honest review. I give Without Me 4.5 OOOOo’s (O’s for Orgasms)
