Exceptional audiobook - took my breath away
Melissa Foster always brings her characters to life, but the story of Truman Gritt took my breath away. Her words draw you into Tru's life so deeply you feel like you are actually there. Tru is an amazing mix of hard and soft as he is the protector of his family but is still vulnerable as he meets Gemma and accepts her help. Paul Woodson’s narration brought this book are me feel as if I were involved in every conversation. He also added humor as he portrayed Kennedy. This book is exceptional in both print and audio.
Love this story.
Tru Blue is a favorite story of mine. Foster turns pain into a beautiful love song with a haunting melody that captures the power of forgiveness, even at the price of hope. Truman is more than the label life has painted on his chest. He's a beautiful soul working through an ugly situation. The edition of Mr. Woodson makes the journey even more real because he gives an emotional performance through the eyes of an unforgettable character.
Sigh... Truman and Gemma
Audiobook Review… Paul Woodson is the perfect Truman. He has a deep, thoughtful, sexy voice that portrays Tru exactly how I expected him to sound. He takes the caring feelings, the fear of ruining the life he is making, and the sexiness of Tru and brings them alive. This isn’t a light and easy book, although there were plenty of fun times in the story. It is rough, tough, and gritty but has all the love, sexiness, and friendships that Melissa Foster is known for.
eBook Review…Tru Blue is Melissa Foster at her best. She brings to this story an absolutely amazingly complex character in Truman. He has lived his entire life, even as a child, protecting and saving those he loves. He even went to prison to protect his brother. The things he saw, the things he did, and the reactions he had have shaped him into the man he is today. Then he meets Gemma.
Oh, Gemma…she is exactly what a man like Tru needs. She accepts him for who he is, she offers him support, not pity or sympathy, and she loves him. The things she is able to do for him are not easy. She offers him support and guidance even when he doesn’t think he needs or wants it. She loves him even when he thinks he is unlovable. She lifts him up when he is down on himself and his life. In return for all this Truman gives Gemma the two things she has wanted her entire life. The first is unconditional love. He just gives it to her, there are no conditions, no do this for my love, he just opens his arms and his heart and lets her in. The second thing she has wanted her entire life?? Well, you need to read the story to find that out.
You have to pick up this standalone story. Truman and Gemma are amazing. Their love is real, with rough spots and all.
