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.

The way this story starts and the way this author sets the scene, puts you right there with Truman (Tru) walking into the crack house and he knows that what he sees will change his life forever and he’s trying to get through every day while on probation. The first chapter or two was definitely hard to read but Tru grabbed the kids and left to give them a better life than he had growing up. I also felt for him with his brother Quincy, but he had offered him help before and he turned him down. Tru was definitely in over his head, but he took the kids home to get them cleaned up and then out to Walmart for supplies. Who knew he might meet ‘the one’ shopping at midnight. I loved how Tru was so protective of the kids and he didn’t even know them, then Gemma steps right up to help Tru figure out exactly what he needs from diapers, formula, and a car seat for Lincoln to fun pajamas for Kennedy. I liked that they had a somewhat of a friendship started but you knew that once Gemma found out the truth, would she stick around. Of course, with Tru working for the Whiskey’s you knew that they would most definitely step up and help with the kids which is exactly what happened. I enjoyed seeing what would happen with Tru and the kids and what part would Gemma play in everything. Unfortunately, Quincy brought some danger onto the scene but with the help of Bear and his brother’s, Tru was able to get that sorted out without police involvement and just when you thought that was handled something else came up that Tru had to deal with. I was moved by how the story progressed for Tru, the kids, Gemma and even Quincy. A lot of forgiveness and second chances and amends to make but in the end with the help from Gemma’s stepfather, Tru was able to make a family. The ending with everyone was so fitting for this newly formed family. I’m definitely excited for the next book with all the flirting that happened in this story with Crystal and Bear. Exceptional book
Tru Blue by Melissa Foster is just amazing. I had been reluctant for years to read Tru's story because knew is going to make me ugly cry and it did when I finally read it. Melissa writes such amazing stories that tear the characters and me/you apart. Then with the most beautiful words Melissa will put the characters and me/you back together. Have lots of tissues! *****
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. This was a book I could not put down. A MUST read!
