He wore the skin of a killer, and bore the heart of a lover…
There’s nothing Truman Gritt won’t do to protect his family–Including spending years in jail for a crime he didn’t commit. When he’s finally released, the life he knew is turned upside down by his mother’s overdose, and Truman steps in to raise the children she’s left behind. Truman’s hard, he’s secretive, and he’s trying to save a brother who’s even more broken than he is. He’s never needed help in his life, and when beautiful Gemma Wright tries to step in, he’s less than accepting. But Gemma has a way of slithering into people’s lives and eventually she pierces through his ironclad heart. When Truman’s dark past collides with his future, his loyalties will be tested, and he’ll be faced with his toughest decision yet.
“You can always rely on Melissa Foster to deliver a story that’s fresh, emotional and entertaining. Make sure you have all night, because once you start you won’t want to stop reading. Every book’s a winner!” NYT Bestselling Author Brenda Novak
My Review –
4.5 You Deserve Love Stars!!
*I volunteered to review a Copy of this book from Rock Star PR*
Thank you so very much Rock Star PR!! I am extremely honored and grateful!! 😀
Having read Ms.Foster’s work before I couldn’t wait to go all grabby hands on this book!! She has done it once again!! Every novel I have read of hers has been addictive and this one was no different!! Seriously, it’s like when you go to the movies and you think you’ll only have a handful of Popcorn but you end up eating the whole bucket of it along with a box of Goober’s. Maybe that’s just me but I’m telling the truth, you won’t be able to stop reading once you start. If the cover isn’t enough to make your heart burst with happiness, I don’t know what will!! Wait, I know!! The story!! To say I loved this story would be an understatement! It was emotional, heartbreaking, sexy, realistic, shocking, and a real page-turner!!
Tru Blue is about Truman Gritt who has went through hell for most of his life but he’s determined to live on his own terms now and Gemma Wright who wants to know what it’s like to love someone else but most importantly to be loved in returned. These two may be from different walks of life but their inner scars connected them in ways they couldn’t possible imagine.
Tru is the definition of an alpha male but one with a heart as pure as gold despite what he’s endured. There were so many times I wanted to jump into my kindle to hug him. My heart broke for him. I loved how selfless he was. The way he loved Lincoln and Kennedy without question was beautiful. Gemma wasn’t afraid to stand her ground and look deeper within someone despite what they showed on the outside. She was so incredibly sweet!! Many times I couldn’t help but break out into laughter at some of the things she did. I adored her friendship with Crystal!!
Old wounds, New Realities, Love, Pasts, Secrets, Pain, and Hope all collide in this tale!!
Will Tru be able to let someone in and care for him? Or will he throw away his one true chance at happiness? Will Gemma find the love she’s always wanted? Or will the harsh truth cause her to turn away? One-Click Today to find out!! Be prepared to have your heart be put through the ringer and back but in the best way possible!! You won’t regret picking this one up!! I absolutely loved all the secondary character’s except for a few and I’m sure if you’ve read this book you know who I am talking about. I am so EXCITED for Bear’s story in Wild Whiskey Nights!! I can’t wait to get my hands on it!! Also, from now on when i hear the word princess I’ll think of Gemma. I hope you love Tru Blue as much as I did my fellow book lover!! 4.5 Stars all around!! 🙂
