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 have been looking forward to Quincy’s story from the moment I met him in Tru Blue. I knew from reading Tru Blue he had a horrible childhood with his teen years going on to adulthood being the worst experience of his life. Despite having this knowledge, I needed to learn about his past from his perspective and Gritty Truth delivered in this regard. The story turned out to be an emotional story that engaged the reader from start to finish. Tru Blue is still my number one book in the series with Gritty Truth coming a close second. It gave me all the feels and falling in love with Quincy and Roni came naturally.

Based on Quincy’s background, I expected an emotional read, and Gritty Truth did not disappoint. It was heartfelt, and I loved everything this story offered. I enjoyed spending time with the major characters and getting myself acquainted with every aspect of their lives. Quincy and Roni survived the terrors of their past, but they still carried the baggage associated with it. Quincy battles drug addiction daily and has reached his second year of being drug free. Roni had her dreams shattered but found a different outlet to use her talent. They were strong, determined and flawed individuals who made an adorable couple. They both had difficulties growing up, but seeing them discovering the beauty of first love and working through their issues made my heart leap for joy.

Quincy’s honesty, genuineness, kindness and thoughtfulness won me over. I admired him for revealing the truth to Roni, a moment which brought tears to my eyes, but what really tugged at my heartstrings was Roni’s unwavering support. She accepted him and never once did she doubt or judged him.

I had a blast revisiting with the Whiskeys. They are fun, non-judgmental, caring, always willing to help other and very supportive of family and friends.

Overall, I found Gritty Truth to be a beautiful and emotional story with characters who were easy to fall in love with. It ended on a beautiful note and had me eager for the next book in the series.

Damn you! God Damn you Melissa! I have literally just finished this book and I don’t know what to do. I know you warned us that this book was going to gut us but man I was not prepared. I thought I was but I was wrong. So wrong.

Ever since I read Tru Blue I’ve been watching Quincy get his life together. He’s been working so damn hard to make up for all his mistakes and I am so proud of him. Quincy has become the man he always had inside. He may think that Tru has always had it all together but Quincy has been through hell and come out the other side a man.

Roni, oh sweet Roni. There were times when I wanted to just give you a big hug and times when I just wanted to celebrate all your milestones with Quincy. Roni is just so adorable. It’s easy to see why Quincy falls for her

These two are so damn perfect for each other. They have both been through so much that I just now want them to be happy and get everything they desire. I think they just became my new favourite couple!

It was great to catch up with the rest of the Whiskey gang. It was nice to see some new faces join the group too. I can’t wait for more books and more love stories.
