Tru Blue by Melissa Foster & GIVEAWAY

New Release........
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 Thoughts…

Tru Blue is Melissa Foster at her best.     She brings to this story an absolutely amazingly complex character in Truman.    He has lived his entire life, even as a child, protecting and saving those who he loves.    He even went to prison to protect his brother.     The things he saw, the things he did, and the reactions he had have shaped him into the man he is today.   Then he meets Gemma.  

Oh Gemma…she is exactly what a man like Tru needs.    She accepts him for who he is, she offers him support not pity or sympathy, and she loves him.     The things she is able to do for him are not easy.   She offers him support and guidance even when he doesn’t think he needs or wants it.    She loves him even when he thinks he is unlovable.     She lifts him up when he is down on himself and his life.     In return for all this Truman gives Gemma the two things she has wanted her entire life.   The first is unconditional love.   He just gives it to her, there are no conditions, no do this for my love, he just opens his arms and his heart and lets her in.   The second thing she has wanted her entire life??  Well, you need to read the story to find that out.  

You have to pick up this standalone story.   Truman and Gemma are amazing.    Their love is real, with rough spots and all.
