Read on for another amazing romance by Melissa Foster. My True Love will give you all the feels as we join Grant and Jules on Silver Island.
Disclosure: I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
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…

“Melissa Foster is synonymous with sexy, swoony, heartfelt romance!” – NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely
“You can always rely on Melissa Foster to deliver a story that’s fresh, emotional and entertaining. Make sure you have all night, because once you start you won’t want to stop reading. Every book’s a winner!” – New York Times Bestselling Author Brenda Novak
“With her wonderful characters and resonating emotions, Melissa Foster is a must-read author!” – New York Times Bestseller J. Kenner
Oh the feels. The love. The anger. The hurt. The pain. The rawness. The passion. You can feel it all, right along with Jules and Grant.
Jules… how to describe Jules? I love her. Adore her. She is someone I aim to be every day. She always finds the happy in a situation. There is always a “silver lining”. She makes everyone’s day with her happiness and she radiates happy and positivity.
I would love to learn more about her childhood experience! I know this book briefly touched on it and past books (such as Jock’s story) has touched on it, but I don’t recall more detail, which I would love to see! (And Dear Melissa, if you have shared it, my reading comprehension skills are not the best, so I likely could just be experiences CRS syndrome!)
Grant… brooding, angry, lost, confused, pained Grant. So handsome. So rugged. So guarded and angry. Him leaving the war was not so much a choice and it leaves him lost on what his future holds. He is now left with consequences of battle and his future was taken away from him. He doesn’t know where to go, but doesn’t want to be on Silver Island.
I loved how Jules was able to bring a little happiness to Grant and never gave up on him and trying to bring light into his darkness. Their love was meant to be and when they finally realize this; the power that they bring is beyond anything I could imagine.
Grant’s family story clawed at my heart. I cried real tears with Jules.
Melissa has a way of writing that immerses you in the story and places you among the characters as one of their beloved friends or families. You cannot help but feel all the emotions as our characters experience them. (Or maybe it’s being an empath that broke my heart right along with Jules’ heart.
My True Love definitely has a spot among the top of my favorite Melissa Foster books. It is a romance story you do not want to miss!
Tempted by Love (The Steeles at Silver Island, Book 1)

Fall in love on the sandy shores of Silver Island, home to coffee shops, boat races, midnight rendezvous, and the sexy, sharp-witted Steeles.
In TEMPTED BY LOVE…
Years ago, bestselling author Jack “Jock” Steele lost his girlfriend and baby in a horrific accident that drove a wedge between Jock and his family, keeping him from sharing a devastating secret. An aging philanthropist saved him from the brink of despair, and for a decade Jock cared for his ailing friend who became his family. Now his friend has passed away and left him a fortune—on the condition that he publishes another book. Jock is floundering, unsure how to rebuild the life he’d walked away from, much less find his muse, have another relationship with a woman, or even think about having a family of his own. But he can’t get his sweet, sexy new friend, single-mother Daphne Zablonski out of his head, and her adorable toddler must know something he doesn’t, because she wraps her tiny fingers around his heart and won’t let go.
Daphne has been through the wringer with her ex-husband and doesn’t believe true love is in the cards for her. Friends she can handle, but letting a man see her mom bod naked? Especially someone as strikingly handsome and unbelievably sexy as Jock? No, thank you. Besides, she has a toddler to chase after and enough fictional boyfriends to fill her lonely nights. If only her book boyfriends could make her body tingle the way one look from her mysterious neighbor does.
As Jock and Daphne’s friendship turns to something too tempting to deny, their lives take an unexpected turn. Can a man who has lost everything find redemption with a woman who has everything to lose? And then there’s that secret…

Archer Steele is one of the leading vintners on the East Coast. He’s arrogant, aggressive, and has never been interested in settling down, which is what makes his hookups with his sister’s beautiful blond best friend, hair and makeup artist Indi Oliver, the perfect escape.
