Audiobook Review: The Gritty Truth by Melissa Foster

Audiobook Review: The Gritty Truth by Melissa Foster

A fun, sexy, and emotionally riveting new standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. USA Today bestseller THE GRITTY TRUTH is the perfect love story for those who enjoy fiercely loyal and insanely sexy alpha heroes, smart, sassy heroines, strong family bonds, bikers, babies, and more!

Recovering drug addict Quincy Gritt has fought his demons. He’s confessed to his crimes and conquered his addictions. He’s finally ready to go after sweet, sexy Roni, the gorgeous brunette who won a date with him in a charity auction five months ago and has been putting him off, and driving him wild, ever since.

Dancer Veronica “Roni” Wescott worked hard to escape the seedy area where she was raised and followed her dreams to Julliard, only to have them shattered in the blink of an eye. She fought hard and regained her footing, but then the rug was pulled out from under her again when the grandmother who raised her passed away, leaving Roni feeling adrift in a world she knows very little about outside of dance. And then there’s Charlie Hunnam–lookalike Quincy Gritt—the man whose late-night texts pulled her through her grief and have been setting her heart aflutter for months.

Quincy pulls out all the stops, determined to prove that their friendship is only the beginning of what’s destined to be so much more. Romantic nights lead to smoldering passion and a deep connection too strong to be denied. But when Quincy’s past comes back to haunt him, can he and Roni accept their new gritty truth, or will Quincy spiral back into the darkness and lose the future he fought so hard to have?

I’ve read several Melissa Foster books and I think that The Gritty Truth is my favorite. It’s gritty dealing is addiction recovery and an emotional journey with Ronnie accepting her scars and limitations. I also love how Melissa Foster’s series always have a built in support system with couples from previous and future books. I love Ronnie and Quincy! Both have gone through so much but are experiencing a lot of their firsts together. This is one of those stories that not only touches your heart, but also has some unexpected twists. It’s funny and sweet and I love the characters both primary and secondary.

I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsession. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Favorite Quote:
Scars are reminders of the things we’ve gone through that brought us to this point and made us who we are. They may not be memories we want to revisit but they don’t make us ugly.
