A fun, sexy, and emotionally riveting new standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. THE GRITTY TRUTH is the perfect love story for those who enjoy fiercely loyal and insanely sexy alpha heroes, smart, sassy heroines, strong family bonds, bikers, babies, and more!
Recovering drug addict Quincy Gritt has fought his demons. He’s confessed to his crimes and conquered his addictions. He’s finally ready to go after sweet, sexy Roni, the gorgeous brunette who won a date with him in a charity auction five months ago and has been putting him off, and driving him wild, ever since.
Dancer Veronica “Roni” Wescott worked hard to escape the seedy area where she was raised and followed her dreams to Julliard, only to have them shattered in the blink of an eye. She fought hard and regained her footing, but then the rug was pulled out from under her again when the grandmother who raised her passed away, leaving Roni feeling adrift in a world she knows very little about outside of dance. And then there's Charlie Hunnam–lookalike Quincy Gritt—the man whose late-night texts pulled her through her grief and have been setting her heart aflutter for months.
Quincy pulls out all the stops, determined to prove that their friendship is only the beginning of what’s destined to be so much more. Romantic nights lead to smoldering passion and a deep connection too strong to be denied. But when Quincy’s past comes back to haunt him, can he and Roni accept their new gritty truth, or will Quincy spiral back into the darkness and lose the future he fought so hard to have?

Will utterly and completely destroy your heart.
Melissa Foster really was not lying when she said this book would break your heart. The Gritty Truth utterly and without a doubt ruined me. The last four chapters? Definition of heartbreak.
Veronica Wescott is an absolutely terrific heroine. I fell in love with her from the very first chapter. She is incredibly faithful, proud and thoughtful. I loved her growth throughout this book; she came from being an inexperienced woman, scared to go on a date with the man who has already captured her heart to a strong, independent woman who was not afraid and was loyal through and through. I loved her character and I loved her braveness from the first page to the last.
Quincy Gritt took my heart from the very beginning. As a recovering drug addict, he has been through so much in his life but his determination for a better future and helping others achieve their goals is truly inspiring. His story will break your heart, terribly but it’s all worth it. I loved how courageous he was, even from the first book in this series.
He is probably one of my favourite Whiskey heroes. His story and character will forever stay with me.
Together, they were absolutely beautiful. The way they loved each other was extraordinary, despite all the fears and pain. It’s truly incredible how someone can change your life for the better. Quincy and Veronica is my definition of soulmates and a couple who was always meant to be. I loved them as individuals, but I loved them even more as a couple.
The Gritty Truth is currently my favourite book from the series so far, and I’m so excited for what more is to come.
