One to Keep teaser 2

 Synopsis:

 There’s a new guy in town…
  
“Patrick Knight, single, retired Guard-turned private investigator. I was a closer. A deal maker. I looked clients in the eye and told them I’d get their shit done. And I did…”
  
Patrick doesn’t do “nice.”
At least, not anymore.
  
After his fiancée cheats, he follows up with a one-night stand and a disastrous office hook-up. His business partner (Derek Alexander) sends him to the desert to get his head straight–and clean up the mess.
   
While there, Patrick meets Elaine, and blistering sparks fly, but she’s not looking for any guy. Or a long-distance relationship.

Patrick’s ready to do anything to keep her, but just when it seems he’s changed her mind, the skeletons from his past life start coming back.

 Excerpt:

 Suppressing a grin, I cupped her cheeks again and covered her mouth with mine. Her lips parted, and our tongues met. I felt her relaxing, and in that moment, the questions in my head were answered and the answers satisfied me deeply. She was mine. No matter what came next. With a calm confidence, I knew I’d never let her go again.

 My mouth moved to her cheek. “Nobody’s getting over anybody here. So why torture us both?”

 Her body shook with her small laugh. “Aren’t you trained for torture?”

 “Yes, but you’re not.”

 She slid down and put her cheek against my chest again. My fingers threaded into her silky hair. She was so beautiful in my arms.

 Her head turned, and she rested her forehead on me, exhaling deeply. “I still don’t want a long distance relationship.”

 But her words didn’t knock the breath out of me like the first time. Back then, I wasn’t sure of anything. Now everything had fallen into place. Everything felt possible. I pushed against the mattress, sitting up and bringing her with me. Her green eyes glistened when they met mine, but I smiled.

 “So we’ll figure it out,” I said, smoothing my thumbs over her cheeks. “We’ll get through the weeks however we can, we’ll be together on the weekends, and we’ll figure out what the future’s going to look like. This distance is not forever.”

 Her head dropped, but only for a moment. When she lifted it again, she moved forward, wrapping her arms around my neck. My hands spanned her waist before sliding up her body to her beautiful breasts. The scent of cactus flower surrounded me, and I lay her back, ready to catch up on all the days we’d missed.

 “Now, that first time was amazing, but it went way too fast.” I covered one tight nipple with my mouth and then the other as her little moans began, her fingers threaded in my hair.

 “You think?” she sighed.

 “Yes,” I said against her body, traveling lower. I kissed her flat stomach, inhaling the warm perfume lingering on her skin. She whispered my name, and I gave her belly one more kiss before catching her thighs and spreading them open…

 My Review:

One To Keep is another book by Tia Louise that just happens to be an excellent read.

Book one One to Hold was all about Melissa and Derek, One to Keep is all about Mel’s best friend Elaine and Patrick (who works with Derek). Elaine and Patrick also met at the resort when they were there for some R&R. They instantly clicked. There was however a problem because Elaine doesn’t do long distance relationships. Patrick wants to make it work though.

The story starts back a little before the resort. It shows how Patrick was a little bit of a play boy. He had an office fling with the wrong person and is now trying to figure out how to fix that. At the same time Patrick wants to be with Elaine.

This book was definitely as good as the first one. Tia really knows how to write them!

My Review:

I absolutely loved this book. Tia Louise is a great author. I wasn’t too sure on how this book would be but I just fell in love right from the beginning. I couldn’t put the book down.

Melissa decided that she and her best friend need to get away for a little while for a little R&R. Mel is thinking that the relationship that she is in is horrible and she doesn’t want to be a part of it. She doesn’t like her husband and hasn’t for a really long time. That is where she meets Derek. She is instantly falling for this dark and handsome man that she has a one night stand with and she doesn’t quite know what to do about it. She is enjoying herself but doesn’t want to get too attached because she will never see him again after she leaves.

After Melissa goes back home she finds out what kind of a man her husband really is and that some how he and Derek are connected in some way. She is thrown for a loop and doesn’t know what to do.

This book is great and a must read and I can’t wait for book 2!!!!
