Melissa Foster
Releasing Nov 9th, 2016


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.




Review :

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars 

If I hadn't enjoyed the story so much I might have paid more attention to some things that under different circumstances would have bothered me. The hero has just been released from jail and finds out that his mother has died and he has besides his brother two other siblings. They are both very young and he decides to take care of them. Upon that quest he meets Gemma and she saves the day by helping him get the right things for the two young children. The chemistry between them is explosive and they instantly connect. 

Gemma is some sort of a planner for children parties, but in a more unique way, which I must admit I found weird. She loves children very much so the job suits her. 

I liked that Gemma's secret and the fact that Tru was in prison didn't have a huge impact on their relationship. 

I liked both Gemma and Tru and I loved the bond between Tru and his siblings. The cover alone can make my ovaries explode. I would like to read the stories of the other people that appear in the story. The book is a stand alone as it's mentioned but some readers will appreciate seeing characters already familiar to them.
