Tru Blue Book Tour and Giveaway

(This is a review by guest blogger Ana Paula Medeiros.)

New Release........
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.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

"Such a powerful, gritty, emotional, heart-wrenching, soul searching read.  In my opinion, this is her BEST BOOK YET! And it really, really needs to be made into a film!!!! If you only read one book this year - make sure it's this one!"

"Tru Blue is more than a romance, it is a story of love, a story of hope and a story of courage. 10 + stars."

Guest Book Review by Ana Paula Medeiros

I read all Melissa Foster’s books and they are great. She has an incredible writing style, only she can write beautiful lines as “A slow smile crept across his face as he tipped his chin up, soaking in the shower of freedom” and “his blue eyes were warm and grateful and so full of longing she could feel it wrapping around her and carrying her another step forward”. She creates characters that are engaging and real. Tru Blue is a book about choices, loyalty and has a dark tone that is unique. Truman is a strong, flawed, hurt but a beautiful character and Gemma is not only his book mate, she is a powerful female character (and truly a heroine) who has a difficult choice by opting to stay with Tru and the kids despite all his past and decides to be part of this family. Quincy is a sad but hopeful character who has suffered so much and the re- introduction of the funky Whiskey Family is a glance of what is coming up in near future in their own books. Seriously, give this book a chance and you will be so hooked on this world that you will pray that 2017 is near to read all about these characters in their future books.
