This book will tug at your heartstrings!
Tru Blue (A sexy standalone romance) - Melissa Foster

What an AWESOME book! Melissa Foster did such a great job creating characters that feel so real and tug at your heartstrings. Truman is a teddy bear wrapped up in a sexy, tattooed, muscled body. Gemma is a beautiful darling with a huge heart. Together, they make the perfect couple! This book made me cry reading about the atrocities Truman and his brothers and sisters went through. Then I laughed watching Tru get a crash course in babies! Truman really embodies my every fantasy because he’s so loyal and strong and sweet, his character makes the whole book. There’s so many ups and downs in the plot, it reads really fast and then I just wanted more. I can’t wait to read about the other characters in the story! Told from dual POVs with a sweet and happy ending.

Tru Blue (A sexy standalone romance) - Melissa Foster

"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.

"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

Tru Blue - Melissa Foster

I had high expectations for the Tru Blue novel from Melissa Foster, and it was even better than I expected!!

The settings are well described in this book. I found it easy to picture where the characters are and what it is like. The details given about the Truman's art on the cars are very vivid. It made me wish I could see it in person.

The depth of the characters helps make this novel so great. The characters background stories helps make the reader understand who these characters are and why they've make the choices they do.

Truman's life was turned into a mess thanks to his mother, yet he makes the most of what he can. He is incredibly loyal and dedicated to his siblings, even if that means putting himself on the line to help save them. I love how much Truman cares about his siblings, friends, and Gemma. Even with the darkness of his past, Truman makes a perfect book boyfriend.

Gemma is so kind and loving, especially when it comes to Truman's siblings. I enjoy how pushy and bossy she can be when she wants something. She helps ground and balance Truman. The way Gemma's past is described makes me appreciate the way I grew up and how much my family cared. Although, I do wish there was more interaction between Gemma and her stepfather. The story left me curious as to how he truly is, especially with how their interaction is towards the end of the book.

Even the secondary characters are fantastic. I love the Whiskey family. I'm so excited that Bear Whiskey is getting a story!

I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
