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.
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.
“Several emotional topics — such as drug addiction, abandonment, infertility and unexpectedly becoming a parent — are easily woven together without making the story feel crowded or overdone. Foster writes exceptional characters that keep readers thinking long after the book is finished… The dynamic members of the Whiskey family are the foundation that holds the group together and they are exactly the reason we’re taught not to judge. Let’s hope we hear more from all of them!” RT Book Reviews

Melissa Foster’s Tru Blue is an emotional read that not only pulled on my heart strings with the entirety of its backstory but also hit all of those sweet spots that just make my heart sing with happiness. It is full of heart ache but will ultimately mend your heart back together and give you hope. It is full of raw passion and steam but also sweet and tender moments.
Let’s be honest… you just look at that cover and you start to melt deep inside. A strong man, covered in tats just hoping that baby so protectively. It is everything that turns your body to mush. And that pretty much sums up what will happen to you over and over throughout this book. Truman is rough and tough. He had an awful childhood. And he is just coming out of spending time in jail for something he didn’t do. But everything he does is to protect those he loves. And even though his exterior is rough. Even though he doesn’t feel like he deserves all the finer things in life. Just like that cover illustrates, the goodness and love can’t help but shine through. And you can’t help but lose your heart to him. And guess what? Neither could Gemma!
The attraction between them is undeniable. It is HOT! It doesn’t matter that their pasts are about as different as night and day. They connect on every level that counts! (And no I don’t just mean between the sheets! – Though really you don’t want to miss those scenes!) They are a couple that you just want to see every happiness for.
I definitely recommend Tru Blue. It was a fast read that sucked me in right from the start as I rooted for this family to find their HEA!
