He wasn't going to fail them. Not now. Not ever...
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.

Absolutely loved it!
Tru Blu by Melissa Foster is a stand alone romance of Truman and Gemma from Pleasant Harbour. I was absolutely hooked from the first page and spent quite a few late nights reading just one more chapter! It's one of those books you just don't want to put down!!
Truman hasn't had the best starts in life and has many emotional wounds that he is forced to face and deal with, I don't want to spoil it by telling you why. Gemma annoyed me at first by her pushy attitude but gradually I warmed to her and understood why she acted this way. Both Truman and Gemma make a beautiful couple who have so much love for not only themselves but the others in this book.
Really didn't want this book to end as I thoroughly enjoyed it! Having read all of Melissa's books this has to be my all time favourite!! This book hit every emotion! I laughed, cried and it made my heart flutter because you are drawn right into the story!!
I will definitely be reading this again!
Another brilliant story from Melissa Foster.
I dare you to not let Truman steal your heart because he stole mine from the start
There are at 3 things can always guarantee from a Melissa Foster book: Sexy, emotional (ranging from heart-wrenching to heart-warming), and just hands down incredible plots that have you wanting to devour the book in one sitting and Tru Blue was all that and so much more. Tru Blue is a heartfelt story of doing what’s right, even if that means facing some of the hardest decisions. Putting a twist on a single parent, this book focuses on an older sibling taking on that role to ensure history can’t repeat itself with his siblings. The book tackles several tough issues head on, from drugs to fertility issues to make it a compelling read and one of the best books I’ve read this year.
Told through dual points of views, there is such an incredible attraction and chemistry between the main two complete opposite and contrasting characters, Truman and Gemma. While both characters have had their own varied personal struggles, the bond that develops and grows so naturally between them was an incredible thing to read because everything was done with such heartfelt raw emotion. The sub-characters within the book played a vital role in establishing various sides to both characters, especially with Truman. The interactions between Truman and his siblings will pull at your heart strings as this hard, tough, independent man learns to raise his two adorable siblings, Kennedy and Lincoln.
Tru Blue is outstandingly written with it’s strong plot, complex characters and immaculate flow and pacing from start to finish. One thing I will say is that when I read a dark romance I expected this to be a little darker so if you are apprehensive about dark romances, you don’t need to be too much. Yes, there is some dark themes faced but it’s not overly dark. The love scenes are perfectly balanced out within the pacing of the book with incredibly written detail that also showed how much chemistry these two actually have. The ending of the book in some ways surprised me by how it finished but following onto the epilogue, it actually worked really well and made it a unique ending style to the main plot. I adored the epilogue and HEA ending it gave to round off Truman and Gemma’s story to make this a complete standalone read.
I can’t recommend this book enough; I dare you to not let Truman steal your heart because he stole mine from the start.

Tru Blue 💙 5+ stars!!!
Tru Blue was my first read by Melissa Foster and it definitely wont be my last! Tru Blue is serious ovary melting material, one of my favourite reads of 2016!!
This is a beautiful story of a sexy, devoted, real life true blue, loving brother. Who after having an unfortunate childhood gets a second chance at life, making sure his siblings don't follow the same path.With a little help from his very own Princess Gemma. Who becomes his hope, his strength & together they complete each other and become the family they had both always wanted.
Melissa's writing style will have you totally captivated from start to finish. I wouldn't particularly say that its dark but its raw, sexy, emotional & inspiring to say the least. Its far from a fairy tale, but something that could & does happen in the world making the story feel real & humbling in many ways.
* Warning by the end of Tru Blue your face will ache from all the smiling. But it will be totally worth it!! *
