Review From User :
This book was incredibly heartwarming. It was full of feels, especially the warm and fuzzy kind. It dealt with abuse, addiction, family, friends, expectations, despair, hope, dreams, and letting love in to light up your life. Melissa Foster wrote one awesomely hot gem of a book and I recommend that every romance lover out there take the time to read it!
"The heart doesn't care about bloodlines or birth parents. It just seems to know how to love in the same way our lungs know how to breathe."
There are too many adjectives to describe Truman. Humble, respectful, protective, talented and he had an immense capacity to love. Ergo, he more than deserved the moniker of Tru Blue. Paired with Gemma, a spunky and pushy and gorgeous gift of a woman with a heart of gold, their story had intense chemistry and fierce love. Gosh, it was love by the buckets full!
"This man. This incredible man should be too damaged to know how to love. Too broken to want to embrace life. And yet here he stood, her pillar of strength, revealing all his weaknesses and fears, baring his tormented soul."
To be honest, I'm still pretty much fangirling over Truman. He was the epitome of a man and I found so much pleasure with him as a character. He was such an awe-inspiring person. It's not often that I fall in love with the hero so quickly, but I loved Truman from the start and it was very hard to let him, and the beautiful family he created, go. Adieu Tru Blue!!
