I am not ashamed to say that I cried quite a bit while reading “Tru Blue”. Ms. Foster, went for the gut with Truman and Gemma. Tru was complicated. Just when I thought I had a read on him, he threw me off course again. From family man to convicted felon, to sensitive soul, there were many sides to this warrior. He had the heart of a lover but the soul of a fighter. His need to protect those he loved, forced him to make some tough decisions. In trying to do the right thing, he changed the course of so many lives and sacrificed the most precious parts of himself.
Gemma is his redemption. She's his conscience when he loses his way, his helper when he needs it and his biggest fan when he loses faith. “Tru Blue” is more than a romance, it is a story of love, a story of hope and a story of courage. 10 + stars.
He wore the skin of a killer, and bore the heart of a lover...
