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.

My Review of Tru Blue by Melissa Foster
Tru Blue is a heartbreaking, emotionally gripping, and incredibly powerful new stand-alone romance from Melissa Foster. With the right amount of sexy and sweet, Melissa gives us another great leading man to swoon over and couple to root for.
Truman is strong, sweet, selfless, and sexy. He will put himself last in every situation and make sure that his family is protected. Plagued with secrets from his past and a shaky future, he finds Gemma. She’s just what Truman needs – giving, sweet, and loving. Her heart is open, but can Truman find his peace before their story ends?
Tru Blue has very serious undertones and brought tears to my eyes, but I think that the peripheral characters and Gemma’s lightheartedness is what brings the story together. It is a detour from Melissa’s other works, in that the characters have more difficult struggles than we’ve seen in her other books. That being said, these characters leaped off the page and surrounded my heart. Their story is epic, heart wrenching, and beautiful.
The children and this story will captivate you and is a must read for any Melissa Foster fan.
