Hey y’all…it’s Throwback Thursday! It’s been a long week and I can’t wait for the weekend!
Throwback Thursday is a meme where I can share some oldies but goodies…books that are older than a year and have been sitting on my TBR for awhile or books that I’ve read & enjoyed from my READ AGAIN E-SHELF. I’ve seen this meme floating around for awhile now so I finally decided to jump on board. Thanks to Renee @ It’s Book Talk who started this meme…if you get a chance, go check out her blog!
Today’s pick is a book I reviewed early last year and continues to be one of my favorite stories from 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.

This book will tug at your heartstrings! What an AWESOME book! Melissa Foster did such a great job creating characters that feel so real and tug at your heartstrings. Truman is a teddy bear wrapped up in a sexy, tattooed, muscled body. Gemma is a beautiful darling with a huge heart. Together, they make the perfect couple! This book made me cry reading about the atrocities Truman and his brothers and sisters went through. Then I laughed watching Tru get a crash course in babies! Truman really embodies my every fantasy because he’s so loyal and strong and sweet, his character makes the whole book. There’s so many ups and downs in the plot, it reads really fast and then I just wanted more. I can’t wait to read about the other characters in the story! Told from dual POVs with a sweet and happy ending.
Have you read this book or any book from Melissa Foster? Have a FANTASTIC day y’all!
