Blurb : 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.
Review : I am not into reading sweet romances … – shocking I know – but I think I need to say this before starting with my thoughts on “Tru Blue” by Melissa Foster.
There are several well known authors that I always avoid reading because even though their writing style is remarkable their books are just to sweet to sugary for me. So when I came across “Tru Blue” I was wondering if this book would be a book for me as the author is known to write heartwarming romances.
But this Blurb just sounded to good to me to pass on the chance of reading this one.
And I am happy I did, because I think she did a great job at walking the fine line between the Bad Boy Books that I love and the sweet romances she is known for.
Truman character was described just edgy enough to work out me. And with Gemma in the picture the whole plot “sweetened” out.
It can be read as a standalone but you will notice characters and histories form previous or future books (I am not sure as this was my first book by this author).
The plot is great and well developed and I can TRUly recommend to read this book.
