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.

Just not for me...
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I am usually pretty easy as a critic, and unfortunately (in this case), I am one to always finish a book, but this book just seemed to drag on, and on, and on, and on... The 2 main characters just seemed to have no flaws, and there wasn't really any ups and downs in the story. I honestly, just wanted more from the story.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Just as expected, very predictable ending. And I am not saying that as a bad thing. I don't really mind a predictable ending when it comes to a romance novel. I want a happy ending
What aspect of Paul Woodson’s performance would you have changed?
His performance wasn't all that bad, I just didn't think that his voice fit the story. He actually has a great voice, and I would listen to another story with him as narrator. When you have a story about an ex-con that hangs out with a bunch of bikers, I expect something deeper, more gravely.
Any additional comments?
To me, this story almost felt like something you would read as fanfiction. Writing was good, but the story just seemed so... picturesque at times. I'm not sure if it was the narrator and the fact that I didn't think his voice fit with the story, or the lovey dove unrealistic story line, but this book just didn't do it for me. This was my 1st book by this author, and there are more by her that I would like to read/listen to, hopefully, I will enjoy them more.

What a witty, humorous, sweet story. Tru had been in prison for six years and he loved to paint. His brother called him and needed his help with their mother. When he got there his brother was beside his dead mother, a baby and a toddler. Tru took the kids with him. After cleaning them up, he took them to WalMart to get food and clothes for them. Gems was in there looking at baby clothes, wishing she could have children. She saw Tru with the kids and helped him pick out stuff for them. Then the adventure begins! What a fantastic job Paul Woodson did with the narration of this wonderfully written story!
