TRU BLUE is a sexy, dark stand-alone novel written in the same loving, raw, and emotional voice romance readers have come to love, and the deeply emotional literary prose women’s fiction readers have come to expect, from New York Times & USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Melissa Foster.

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
Truman Gritt is the perfect man, he had a bad childhood with her drugged mother, he took care of his little brother until he goes in jail for a crime he didn’t commit. Six month after his release, his brother calls him for help and Truman as a good brother goes and find his mother dead, his brother drugged and he finally discover that he has two other siblings. He takes them and decides to take care of them.
Gemma hadn’t had more luck with her family, she got money but not love and sadly she can’t have kids. When she found Truman in a supermarket with two little kids, she try to help and as always love will come for them.
Tru Blue is a sweet sexy romance full of love, family bond and friendship. The story is heartbreaking, the way Truman is with Kennedy and Lincoln is adorable, he loves them so much and he wants what is best for them. I also like the fact that Truman has no secret for Gemma, he tells her the truth, except the one that is not his to tell.
I love Truman, really he is a pretty amazing character, he has faith in life and from where he comes it’s a miracle. Gemma is good too even if at a moment in the book she wants to do things legally even if it can be a mistake. I really love the way Gemma and Tru acted when they are with the kids, they love them so much and wants the best for both of them.
I also like the relation between Truman and the Whiskey’s, they seems to be good people and I’m very impatient to read their story.
I have so many feelings while I read Tru Blue, good feelings, lot of love and also sadness because of the way Gemma and Tru’s parents treated them. Every child must receive love and happiness; if parents can’t do that then they mustn’t give birth.
Quick Word: Tru Blue is a heartbreaking romance with two people who deserves each other and the happiness that will come for them.
