Truman "Tru" Gritt was a man I fell in love with. Coming from a family that was terribly broken, Tru has become fiercely protective of those he grows to love and care for. From the opening chapter, where Tru's life changes dramatically to the final one where he has finally managed to obtain all that he has ever wanted, this man won my heart. His fierce protective instincts combined with his gentle nature are what endeared him to me. He was quite simply a fighter with a heart of gold. A man who met the true love of his life by sheer accident and in quite funny circumstances.
Gemma Wright, a strong young woman who was fighting a battle of her own. Gemma left her family behind and moved to a new town to begin a new life - one which she could be proud of. She owns a local Princess shop, where she holds "princess parties". But Gemma has a heartbreaking pain that she lives with daily, her inability to have children. She meets Tru and together they become the family that they have both always desired. There are numerous funny circumstances between the two, but it is the heat and the desire between them that really got my heart pumping. These two together are enough to make a volcano explode.
Just when life seems to be floating along nicely, Tru's past comes back to haunt him. He has already told Gemma one of his secrets, but he has not told her the largest one - afraid that she will no longer want to remain with him. But his secret is told - and not by him. Will this revelation tear the two apart? Can Tru leave his past behind him and forge a future together with Gemma?
This book was exceptional. One that will always remain close to my heart. It is so much more than a romance story, it is a story of the greatest kind of love that a person can have - understanding and acceptance of another's past.
I cannot wait to read more from Melissa Foster, especially if she is going to write about some of the supporting characters in this novel.
FIVE STARS are fully deserved for this magnificent story.

Now that I have that gushing out of the way, let me get on with it.
Truman is a hero I fell in love with instantly. He’s someone I can totally understand. He always felt the need to protect those he loves and will stop at nothing to do so. He is so sweet to the little brother and sister he didn’t even know he had; it will melt your heart. (FYI, Truman and his siblings are all named after presidents and it is super cute.)
The speed with which Truman and the heroine, Gemma, fall in love is off the charts. There is nothing life that can bring people together faster than small children. Of course, small children can also tear people apart pretty quickly too. Luckily that wasn’t the case here. Even with the speed of their relationship, it all somehow made sense and it really worked.
I love the way Tru and Gemma work together for the well-being of the kids and really think about how their past will shape the way they view the world. In some ways, it can be seen as coddling. Yet they don’t allow themselves to remain in a bubble. They want to kids to acclimate to the real world even if that’s scary. After Gemma’s initial time she needed to think things through, Gemma and Tru really stuck by each other and respected each other’s choices and decisions.
The author, once again, does a great job of making me care about all the characters even if they are not the main characters. There are a lot of great stories simmering under the surface with this group.
