Title: The Gritty Truth
Author: Melissa Foster
Genre: Contemporary Romance
About The Gritty Truth:
A fun, sexy, and emotionally riveting new standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. 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 been waiting for Quincy’s story for so long.
Since I met him in Truman’s book, I knew that he would share some emotional story and I wasn’t wrong. He just did.
The Gritty Truth had plenty of emotions, about the two main characters who had endured so much and had to face their own fears, when some scars still ran deep. Two fighters and survivors who took a chance on love and oh my Quincy… the biggest swoon for that one and so much more.
Quincy was still working on himself. He might have done wrong in his past, but totally assuming it and not ashamed. As a former addict, he showed that he could face it thanks to his family and friends, supportive like no other.
There’s been a long way of recovery, a rough path but it made him the man he was today. Loyal, selfless with a heart of gold and no longer lost.
I had such a crush for him but this book made me fall more in love with this character.
Veronica was a fighter, independent and trying very hard not to fall for Quincy. When the woman who was raised to be tough, not to rely on someone,met him and all his family, welcoming her so warmly and genuinely, it was definitely more difficult to put any distance. Brave and fierce, sweet and sassy all at once, I appreciated how honest she was and always supportive of Quincy, not judging and trusting him.
I adored their chemistry and banter. Melissa could write some swoony heroes but their matches were not damsels in distress, women who could keep them on their toes and challenge them along the way. Quincy was going straight for what he wanted, not beating around the bush but letting the girl lead the pace.
They were insanely cute and somehow intense. I appreciated how natural it was, melting so wonderfully.
It showed a darker side and somehow very sad story on how your life could easily be spiraling down but when you have people who could stand by your side and help you fight your battles, the hard work pays.
After meeting so many characters throughout the other books, I wasn’t lost at all. Each book introduced a new couple that would give you butterflies and all the feels. This one was particularly heavy on the feels but it was the gritty truth, without any pretense, raw and emotional, passionate and sweet at times.
Quincy and Veronica told us a beautiful story, full of love,with strong family values and friendships, and once you’re part of this family they won’t let you go easily.
