Tru Blue (The Whiskeys #1) by Melissa Foster
Imagine falling in love with a man, then finding out he was a killer…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.
Truman Gritt is a man that grew up in the worst imaginable situation. He did everything he could to protect his younger brother from the life they were being brought up in. When his mother dies and he finds out that he has a very young brother and sister he knew nothing about, he steps up and takes care of them.
Gemma had a privileged upbringing, but was never shown love. As an adult, she makes it her mission in life to bring happiness to the lives of children, one party at a time.
Truman and Gemma both grew up in less than happy homes, but they have hearts that are limitless in their capacity to love. Their optimism and acceptance of those around them are beautiful. This book focuses on the concept that family is what you make it, not those you are born to.
This truly was an exceptional book, well written, with great characters. I enjoyed every bit of it, and can’t wait to see what happens next in the Whiskey world!
