Tour Stop + Review + Giveaway: Tru Blue by 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.
***"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

He finds more than that, he finds redemption and love too. When he meets Gemma he doesn't think he'd be lucky enough to call her his girlfriend. Gemma finds herself drawn to Truman and his kids. He looks so out of place with two kids, and no idea what to do with them. Which she finds odd too. But she is willing to give him benefit of the doubt and her help.
As they both learn more about each other, they realize how well they fit together. But then past interferes.
It's a heartbreaking, and breathtaking story. I absolutely loved both of them and their story. It was worth the read and more...
