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
Tru Blue is about Truman Gritt, his loyalty, his protectiveness towards his siblings, friends and the woman he loves. Tru Blue is as passionate, dedicated and intense in his relationship with Gemma as he is in his other non romantic relationships.
Gemma makes it easy for Tru to love, care and sweep her off her feet. She is pushy, inquisitive and curious as a kid with a naughty streak. She is attracted to Tru and she doesn’t hide it. She owns it with style and inserts herself in his life, helping him with his baby siblings. Kids are Gemma’s passion and she doesn’t hesitate for a second in treating the kids like they were her own. She has her own reasons for such sudden familiarity and comfort she establishes with the kids.
Tru and Gemma are honest with each other right from the moment they meet. Their honesty is simple and an extremely attractive quality. They mesh well in each others lives and it may seem sudden to some readers but when you love someone you don’t waste time going slow. Truman is loyal to a fault and his love for his siblings makes him a sexy, sensitive and irresistible Alpha. As a couple with sizzling, honest and adorable chemistry Tru and Gemma had me hooked on their story; the cute kids were a bonus and their friends added a warm, fun element in this awesome story.
