Review ~ Tru Blue by Melissa Foster

Tru Blue
eARC received via the author in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: November 9th 2016

Publisher: Self-published

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 Opinion

Once again, this is another new author for me. I'll be honest and say that although I've seen plenty of this author's work around, none of it has ever drawn me in like Tru Blue. Don't ask me why, I have no idea--probably because I judge books by their cover and they didn't appear like my type of book. I shouldn't, I know, but we all do right?

Anyway, Tru Blue seemed to break what I'd seen from this author previously. The cover intrigued me, and ever since I saw it, I had been dying to read it. I was so glad I was contacted about being able to review this book, and it's safe to say I shouldn't have discarded this author based on book appearances.

Tru Blue was a read that gripped me from page one until the end. It was a heart warming story of protectiveness and family, and I couldn't help but love Truman for it. He was a strong characters who loved fiercely and he went to any lengths to protect his family. I think the author did a great job with his personality. He didn't come across as overbearing or like an ass. The concern was genuine and my heart broke when he opened himself up to Gemma.

I thought the two of the complimented each other brilliantly. I liked how they grew and helped each other, but most of all there wasn't a lot of drama with them. They were both very accepting characters and it made for easy reading. I liked their little family.

While I haven't read anything else by this author, I can see from Tru Blue she has an interesting back list of characters. They all seemed very close in this book and it has piqued my interest enough to go back and read Bear's story. They seem like good guys.

As for the story, although I'm not 100% convinced about certain events or reasoning, I did enjoy it immensely. It held my interest well and I couldn't put it down.

Overall, I feel like I've missed out by not reading anything from this author earlier. This was a beautiful, well-written book and I'd definitely recommend it.
