When Tyler fled Colorado to spend the summer back in his home town of Tahoe, the last thing he expected was to keep running into Mira Frasier. Back in high school, Tyler was head over heels for Mira, but was too shy to ever act on it. When she sought him out at a party his senior year, he thought all of his dreams were coming true. Mira loved Tyler since middle school. For her, Tyler was always "it." But she knew she was never going to college, never getting out of Tahoe, didn't feel like she could ever be good enough for him. So after one well planned out night, she shut him out. But now Tyler's back in town, and they've fallen into the same group of friends. Mira's always done what she can to help her mom, but now it's put her in danger. When Tyler is thrown into the role of protector, they find themselves living in close quarters until Mira's problems can be sorted out. The more time they spend together, the harder it is for them to deny their attraction for one another. Can they get past everything they've been through, and keep from hurting each other again? I was really looking forward to Book 3, and Jules Barnard did not let me down. To finally get insight into Mira, see where her insecurities and fears were coming from, and see her start to grown into an independent woman was beautiful. At the same time, to learn why Tyler ran from his teaching job for a summer of partying. Book three was definitely worth the wait.

I enjoyed reading this series

I love this book. Not loved. LOVE. Present tense. This is going with my classics of feel good stories I return to when I just want to feel happy and content. Part of this is because I love finding a series which provides 2 things - separate stories to delve into while maintaining an overarching plot that unfolds over the course of the series that ties in all of the books - and this series delivers impeccably. It is filled with many different aspects including a sweet romance, steamy scenes, laughable moments, relatable situations of trying to figure out life, a bit of mystery and suspense, you name it. This is the third book in the Blue series, and while you can read this one as a stand alone, there is an underlying plot that is building upon events from earlier books. I would recommend reading from the beginning of the series not just to be able to pick up the references to earlier books, but also because the earlier books are wonderful reads in and of themselves. Mira and Tyler’s story is one you can get lost in.Their love story is one with intense and lasting passion and is a love/hate relationship - they love extremely, and hate the vulnerability that love brings. Besides the focus on their relationship, there is also a bit of suspense and mystery. There are some bad guys to look out for and Blue Casino continues to show the ways in which it’s not the best place to be... The characters are relatable, strong and worth rooting for the entire time. I love when an antagonistic character gets their own book in a series and you can really understand where they are coming from and be able to root them on as well. We mainly see Mira’s flaws before this book, and I’m glad we have the opportunity to learn more about her life. Tyler was a refreshing male lead, handling his issues without all the angst and that misogynistic-perspective-to-be-fixed that heroes in other books tend to carry. The whole gang is also back, with glimpses from main characters from earlier books, as well as supporting characters who will hopefully be getting their own stories soon (fingers crossed!). The story is easy to read, flows seamlessly and is very witty and sweet. It is written with a split POV, which is done perfectly and really strengthens the story being able to see both sides, equally showing Tyler and Mira’s viewpoints and hardships to overcome. The story fits in very well with the rest of the series. This is a great book and definitely my favorite of the series so far. I will be keeping Ms. Barnard on my radar. She did a wonderful job introducing this group of people you just want to root for and learn more about.  I was kindly gifted a copy of True Blue to read in exchange for an honest review.

TRUE BLUE follows Mira and the oh so mysterious brother of Cali who we met in book 1 - Tyler. I knew there was something going on with Tyler when I read the first book, and I am so excited that Jules decided to tell his story. The same can be said for Mira. In previous books we find her being extremely clingy and just seemingly not so awesome towards Gen. It was so very nice to find out the reasons behind her actions - and to find out what happens when romance gets a second chance.  The thing about love is - we don't always get it right. Sometimes, as humans, we really mess it up. Jules always writes with such raw honesty, and this book is no different. It's very easy to see this story happening in "real life" - and I'm sure to someone, it has. Two high school kids fall in love, but are scared to say so - and because of that, they make choices that probably aren't good for either of them. That being said, those choices bring them back together and even though they both have the wrong idea about one another, even years after high school, they eventually learn to communicate and things get.... hot.  Mira and Tyler don't have a perfect story. They're both super infuriating at times. They both have demons that need to be battled - but that's what makes me love them. They're real. They're honest. They're raw. Their story is quite possibly my favorite in the series. I'm again, super proud of Jules for writing about the hard stuff: addiction, gambling, and the struggles that come with chasing your dreams. Anyone can write a fairy tale. Jules can write real life - and make it sound like a fairy tale.  TRUE BLUE is a must read.  **This book has some mature content and may not be suitable for readers of all ages**

4-1/2 Stars. I read Blue Crush earlier this year and fell in love with the characters Jules Barnard created and the incredible chemistry she develops between them, so I couldn't wait to get my hands on True Blue. I gotta admit, I was not a fan of Mira's after reading Blue Crush, so the fact that True Blue was from both her and Tyler's points of view made this one of my most anticipated sequels of the year. And it delivered! We get to roll around inside Mira's head and see why she is the way she is, why she relies so heavily on Lewis, and what her issues with Gen really were. But more importantly, we learn why she's so damaged and more about the past that continues to haunt her. Man I just love her. We also get to see a lot more of Tyler Morgan, the younger brother of Gen's roommate, Cali. Mira and Tyler have a history that is hinted at in Blue Crush and we finally get to see what that's all about, and it's intense. Plot Once again, Jules Barnard balances a solid main plot with a variety of subplots that keep you guessing. The book opens in middle school where we learn the history of Mira and Tyler, then zooms through to high school where we learn about the miscommunication that sets up the animosity between these two. Add to that Mira's loan shark trouble, a less than stellar mother, and some shady characters at Blue Casino, and True Blue is a page turner. I really only have two complaints, two things that really keep this from being a full five-star for me. The first is a rushed climax. After building a lot of intrigue and potential danger, I feel like it all culminated too quickly and wrapped up easier than it should have. The second is that after so thoroughly developing the conflict up front that weaves through the remainder of the book, it would have been nice for Mira and Tyler to have addressed what happened in high school. The reader gets an in-depth understanding, but I think if Mira and Tyler had really hashed it out, it could have made a compelling and emotional scene. World Building Once again, the story takes place in beautiful Lake Tahoe, one of my personal favorite vacation spots. It's fun to read about places I know well. I can so vividly picture the setting, that I needed to remind myself a couple of times that the people are fictional even if the town is not. Characters I love Mira. She's flawed and damaged and misunderstood, but this makes her growth that much more satisfying. And Tyler is awesome. Even though he's deeply wounded, he still  does the right thing. But he's not perfect. He's human, makes mistakes, does things that make you want to scream at him, but those are the things that make him so believable, and also what makes him perfect for Mira. We get to see a bit more of Lewis and Gen, too, which is nice. I'm hoping the next book in the series gets us inside Zach's head because he's fast becoming my favorite character. Top Five Things I Love About  True Blue 1. Mira's boss Hayden Tate. She's the boss everyone should have. 2. Mira. She's such a well-developed character, I have to remind myself she's fictional. 3. Tyler. He's perfect for Mira, but he's not perfect. He's sweet, but a guy. He's not an alpha male and that's just so refreshing for a change. 4. The prologue. I'm not usually a fan of prologues, but it's just so well done and sets the stage so perfectly, it's hard not to love it. 5. The Lake Tahoe setting. Love, love, love it. It's beautifully authentic. Bottom Line True Blue is full of incredibly real characters coping with real-life problems in authentic ways. It's full of angst, conflict, and satisfying moments of sweetness.
