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.
The author did a great job with this story. This book got me right in the feels. Honestly, Truman's character reminded me of Dominick T. from the Fast & Furious movies, but a little different, obviously. They both have heart and loyalty and they both will do anything to protect their family. who wouldn't? You find yourself sympathizing for him, what he willingly went through to protect his family and what he walked into after getting released. This tough guy wears his heart on his sleeve, is loyal to the bone, and unapologetically steps up to the plate in many situations. And that makes the readers love him and makes him incredibly sexy. This story will definitely take you though the ropes of emotions.
I highly recommend this book.
