ARC BOOK REVIEW: My True Love by Melissa Foster



My True Love is my first read from author Melissa Foster and the second book in the Steeles and Silver Island series.

What I loved:
Complicated hero is my jam, and Grant Silver is all sorts of complicated. Veteran, back in his hometown after a career-ending injury and no idea what to do next with his life. Grant is everything I love in a hero, broody, alpha, maybe needs a little saving himself.

I very much like the heroine, Jules, but she is very in your face, blinding sunshine. When you read the story, you will understand what has shaped her personality this way, but she is super optimistic.

It’s a small-town romance which is always a favorite trope of mine, and you can’t go wrong there.

What I didn’t love:

In the first chapter, you get blasted with tons of information about their families, which are both HUGE. It was information overload, and I had to put the book down and come back multiple times. I’m all for giving me the backstory, but we don’t need the family tree in the first six pages. I’m reading about the story between the h/H, and while secondary characters are essential, lets spread it out, please.


I thought this story was good, but I wasn’t taken over by it. Is it a good book that I think readers will love? Yes. Did it wow me? No. Do I think you should give it a try? Absolutely! And then you should tell me what you thought too!

My True Love by Melissa Foster is now live!

Can a man who resents the hand he's been dealt and a woman who spends her days grateful for every little thing find true love in each other's arms--or are their differences stronger than both of them? Find out in this funny, sexy, heartfelt romance, and fall in love with Grant and Jules on the sandy shores of Silver Island, home to coffee shops, boat races, and midnight rendezvous.

Even war heroes need a little help sometimes...
After spending years fighting for his country and too damn long learning to navigate life with a prosthetic leg, Grant Silver returns to Silver Island to figure out a future he couldn't fathom without fatigues and a gun in his hand. He'd almost forgotten how a man could suffocate from the warmth and caring community in which he'd grown up, and if that weren't bad enough, his buddies' beautiful and far-too-chipper younger sister won't stop flitting into his life, trying to sprinkle happy dust everywhere she goes.

As a cancer survivor, Jules Steele knows better than to count on seeing tomorrow. She doesn't take a single moment for granted, and she isn't about to let a man who used to be charming and full of life waste the future he's been blessed with. She's determined to get through to him, even if it takes a few steamy kisses...
