About this ebook

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. My True Love is a Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller.


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...

This has it all! Breathtaking hotness, emotions fighting for your heart, and so much fun and laughter, you are left with a wonderful warm glowing feeling after reading it! Oh Grant, Grant, Grant!! I couldn't wait to read the story of this lonesome, grumpy man after meeting him in Tempted by Love and I couldn't have wished for a more pleasing character. He's found himself back in the close caring community of Silver Island, only this time he's come back from war as an amputee, and he wants none of the kindness that's surrounds him. He's intense, full of pent up emotion, he feels lost with himself and his life, and has no direction to aim for, this is a whole new type of war for Grant to deal with. Only his long time friend and almost friend to lover Jules knows him better than he knows himself, as she starts her plan to soften the hardest of Grant's edges in her own unique fun loving way. Jules had cancer battle when she was younger, but the story doesn't dwell on that fact. She is such a loving, caring character that lives in a cloud of happiness and is determined to sprinkle that happy magic dust wherever it is needed. I liked how she wasn't portrayed as an annoying busy body, rather that she had a discreet way of planting a seed in to someones mind to give them that little loving push rather than making them run in the other direction. She brought lots of fun to the pages and when she got excited she was so funny, she just blurts things out and can't even stop for a breath. Melissa's writing brings this sensitive story to life for the reader, as both hero and heroine work through their problems so beautifully together. These two are the perfect match, so sweet and encouraging, and when it comes to the physical side of things OMG Melissa's writing has the images flying of the paper it's so enjoyably HOT and Grant is ALL MAN!! Surrounded by some amazing Silver Island characters who feel very familiar, they seem to deepen the story with their strong bonds, friendships, family loyalty, and love. A incredibly beautiful, beautiful story that touches your heart as you read on, it blew me away!

This is a captivating story that will appeal to all romance lovers, I was drawn in to Grant Silver and Jules Steele’s story from the first chapter and there was no putting down until I had read the final line. Two survivors who have faced death come together in this wonderful story, Ms Foster knows how to give us characters to fall in love with, she is never afraid to show her characters strengths as well as their vulnerabilities and in My True Love we see both sides of Jules and Grant. Grant returns home to Silver Island with his military career over, he is bitter and is struggling to cope with the community he grew up in welcoming home with open arms, she feels like he doesn’t deserve the welcome they seem intent on giving him.... Jules has fought cancer and won, she is grateful for every morning she wakes up and she is determined to make the most of everyday so can this strong, determined woman show Grant that life really is worth living, that the more we put into ours lives the more we will get out of it but more importantly his life is not over . Her kindness is something Grant struggles with but she slowly chips away at the walls he has built around himself and she brings light and happiness to a man determined to live alone. My True Love touched me on so many levels, it’s a beautifully written love story about two damaged souls learning to get strength from each other and it’s a heartfelt romance that will stay with me long after this review is written. Another wonderful romance from the very talented Ms Foster.

Rating: 4.5 Stars Bellamy has some interesting friends. The author will get you laughing before the first chapter is done. So, make sure to clear your calendar just to be on the safe side. You’ll want to get comfortable and not put this down until the last word is read. Jules wants what she wants in order to make someone happy. How she goes about it is another laughable moment. Our author makes the comedic moments seem as if they come so easy to her. Grant is a man who served his country well. Ms. Foster does a great job in showing the reader how frustrated he is about the hand he has been dealt. There is a scene where Jules is at the beach and she seems to have an epiphany about the setting – and I feel the exact same way. Our author is very smart at using the little things for the reader to connect to. Even though you may have some tough things going on in your life, family and/or friends may be there to lift you up. This was a great book on so many levels. It checks off all the boxes for romance in general. But then you can include military, disability, rom-com and small town. If you enjoy the holidays, you’re even given a little bit of that. And if there was a category for frustrating males, this would be at the very top. If you’re a fan of the holiday Hallmark movies, this would be a perfect fit. But maybe keep a tissue close by. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
