He wore the skin of a killer and bore the heart of a lover. That was the tangled web of lies he’d created to protect those he loved, and it would forever more be the cloak that shrouded him. Once he revealed his past, she’d never look at him like this again.
OMG! I have read my fair share of Melissa Foster’s books. There were some that I loved, and some not so much, but none has never owned my heart the way Tru Blue did. This book took me on an emotional roller coaster ride, which I am yet to recover from. Tru Blue is the kind of story that will bring tears to your eyes and put a smile on your face. It's filled with hope, love, joy, heartache, passion and tenderness.
The first thing that caught my attention was the cover. It sent a very powerful message, which is backed up by the contents of the book. When I began reading, I could barely contain myself as the heartbreaking scenes began to unfold. From that moment, I knew that this story would take a different turn from all the other books that I have read from this author.
The story was not the only thing to own my heart. Truman took a piece for himself. I love it when a man is loyal, caring and protective and Truman Grit was all that and more. He did not have an easy life growing up. He was abandoned by his father and his mother was a drug addict. Truman was able to rise above this, however, fate had different plans for him when he was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit. It is said that prison hardens a man, but Truman was anything but hard. He may appear hard on the outside, but beneath that hardened exterior laid a heart bursting with love. The way he stepped in to care for his siblings with no hesitation was an indication of the loving person he was. It was quite understandable why Gemma was drawn to him.
Gemma Wright dreams of finding a man who knows how to love, who is a good father and would not run at the first sign of trouble. All the things her own father was not. The night she met Truman, she knew her dream had become a reality. She is very pushy and takes no for an answer, which Truman will come to discover, when she unwittingly wormed her way into his life. She exploded in his life in such a manner that he had no desire to push her out. His only fear was that he would lose her when she discovered his secret. Gemma, accepted Truman for the loving and protective person that he was. She did not judge him. She was perfect for him, despite their different backgrounds.
Melissa Foster is known for writing hot and sweet romance stories and Tru Blue was no exception. The way Tru and Gemma met was absolutely adorable. From that moment their attraction to each other developed into something meaningful. This story was not just about romance. It touched on real life issues such as drug abuse and wrongful incarceration. I have seen firsthand the ravaging effects of drug addiction so I could understand what Truman was dealing it from a very young age. Watching his mother and brother spiralling out of control could not have been easy.
This was my best Melissa Foster book to date. I am eagerly awaiting the next book in this series.
