Publisher's Summary

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 it 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.

Love This Series

I'm so glad that I took a chance on this series. Each book gets better. I have one more to go, but this one? It had me crying and laughing consistently. I couldn't put it down. Had to stay up to finish it. Well worth the credit or the cash.

I loved Anthony’s story!

This book has some lol times and having tears in my eyes, times. Anthony’s love is so awesome and the whole family gets together for head slapping, nut smacking times. This family cracks me up. This series is well worth the money and the time invested.

OMG!

Would you consider the audio edition of Without Me to be better than the print version?

I love the audio version the best.

Have you listened to any of Ryan West’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Ryan did an awesome job. I don't have anything to compare too.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Without Me

Any additional comments?

Omg is an awesome book!!! I love Anthony even more than City's book. Without Me is my favorite one of the Gallos. I love Anthony cockiness and Max's attitude too.

surprisingly good!

Didnt think I would like this one based on the reviews. It was an enjoyable surprise. The hero and heroine deserved each other. And apart from a few eyerolls for using the word "exotic", it was tastefully done. As a black woman, I appreciated that. Loved the story, the persistence of the hero, and the genuine selfless love of the heroine. Thank you for this surprise Chelle!

SITFOA....you'll see

I usually find no fault with Chelle and this is only a slight knock....but I have never shouted "spit it the fuck out already" so many times before!!! I'm all for anticipation but geez...SPIT IT THE FUCK OUT ALREADY! I loved the narration and overall story though.

What family means

I totally enjoyed listening to the audible book.
This is truly a story about how family can help one in life's journey. Anthony never went looking for love until he met Max. This is is story of how love prevails when faced with life's difficulties.
