Derek Alexander is a retired Marine, ex-cop, and the top investigator in his field. Melissa Jones is a small-town girl trying to escape her troubled past.
When the two intersect in a bar in Arizona, their sexual chemistry is off the charts. But what is
revealed during their “one week stand” only complicates matters.
Because she’ll do everything in her power to get away from the past, but he’ll do everything he can to hold her.
(Standalone, M/F, HEA)


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!!!!

One to Keep (Patrick & Elaine)

One to Hold Series Book 2
Now Available

WARNING: Mature themes, strong language and sexual content. Recommended for adult readers (18+) only!

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.
(Standalone, M/F, HEA)

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!

WARNING: Recommended for adult readers (18+) only. Mature themes, strong language and sexual content.

Justice, revenge, retribution.

When Melissa’s ex-husband Sloan manages to beat criminal charges, she stops believing he will ever pay for what he did. Derek Alexander will not accept that–a tiny silver scar won’t let him forget, and he is determined to make the man who hurt his fiancee pay.

After exhausting all legal options, Derek is ready to take matters into his
own hands. Until his partner Patrick Knight shows up with an unexpected solution…

Note: This stand-alone adult romance will be best understood if read following One to Hold and One to Keep.

My Review:
I love all books by Tia Louise and One To Protect did not disappoint. This book can be read as a standalone story because Tia catches us up with the story but it does make more sense when you read One to Hold and One to Keep. I like that all of the characters kind of follow each other in each book. The story just keeps moving on through each story.

In One To Protect Derek and Melissa are the main characters. Derek is trying to figure out how he could stop Melissa’s ex from hurting anyone else. He thinks he has founds someone else that her ex may have hurt and he now needs to figure out to get him off of the streets at whatever cost. It is now up to Derek and Patrick to figure out a plan on how to make that happen. They turned to Toni Durango (the girl set up Patrick in One to Keep) to help pose as a girl looking for money that looks very similar to Melissa and try to get her ex to do something so that they can catch him and put him away for good.

Things didn’t go according to plan but this book is a must read! I can’t wait for more from Tia Louise.
