Amy's 4 star ARC Review of Tru Blue by Melissa Foster

Imagine falling in love with a man, then finding out he was a killer...
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.

"Sexy and Heartbreaking....I simply adored this beautifully written romance." Tasty Book Tours

"Ms. Foster, went for the gut with Truman and Gemma. Tru Blue is more than a romance, it is a story of love, a story of hope and a story of courage. 10 + stars." Night Owl Reviews

"With her wonderful characters and resonating emotions, Melissa Foster is a must-read author!" New York Times Bestseller Julie Kenner

"Melissa Foster is synonymous with sexy, swoony, heartfelt romance!" New York Times Bestseller Lauren Blakely

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 an amazing character. Leaving prison after six years and returning to the only home he knows he is determined to live his life the way it was intended before the night everything changed. Bear and Dixie are his family now along with the club. Working at Whiskeys Auto is his passion along with his hidden vice of art. Thinking he is settled in a phone call puts Truman’s life into a spiral once again. Quincy needs him. His little brother sounds likes he is in trouble … again. 

Gemma Wright was born and raised in high society but it never fit. Owning her own shop and getting away from her terrible mother has been the best decision she ever made. She loves children which is what led her to open the business she did. Wondering around the store late one evening her breath is taken away by a man who looks brutal but gentle … loyal and hard … and is obviously struggling with the two children in his arms. Where in the world did this man come from and why is she drawn to him. 

This is a really great story. I love characters who face things we cant seem to fathom but come out fighting and strong. Gemma is a magnificent character. She is sassy yet sweet and it seems like this is the first time she has taken a chance and been so bold. Truman is a man’s man. His feelings are worn on his sleeve making his appearance a mirage. I was swooning over the man myself. 
I was more drawn in this book to the storyline and not the smexy times which happens to me a lot. LOL! There were some “silly” moments between the two characters and the things that came out of their mouths while smexy time but that’s all well and good. I haven’t read the previous books by this author but I can honestly say I know I would love them. We get a good teaser for whats up next and I don’t know if Bear’s book is coming or if its already out so I must for sure go check into it! 

Thank you Melissa for the ARC! I love the cover – absolutely beautiful. Nothing makes a woman’s heart go pitter patter more than a man who is hard but turns to mush over his children. I hope to hear more of these two in future books as the ending was sort of abrupt … I was like what … ??? Where’s the next page. But that’s me being greedy as always. Thank you again! Click this one up friends!
