Blog Tour: One To Keep (One to Hold #2) by Tia Louise


Synopsis :

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.

She didn’t push me away or tell me no as I kissed her again with more urgency this time. She turned, and I kissed her cheek.

“I’m too weak when it comes to you,” she murmured as I traced the line of her jaw with my lips. “I should be stronger.”

My kisses moved to her temple and into her hairline. She was so beautiful, and I had her again. “You’re incredibly strong,” I murmured. “You held me off for three weeks when everything in me wanted to come here and take you back.”

I could feel her breathing pick up as I kissed her, and the tension below my waist grew tighter. My mouth returned to hers, and it opened quickly, tongues uniting, her fingers now threading in my hair.

Her lips were so sweet, but I moved my kisses to her chin, dropping down to her neck, and unfastening the buttons on her shirt, kissing every spot of delicate skin that was revealed as it came apart…

My review:

One to Keep is the second book in the One to Hold series written by Tia Louise. It adds to the story of Derek and Melissa, shows a new angle of their relationship, yet it's all about Melissa's wild friend Elaine and Derek's energetic, flashy associate Patrick.

My first impression of Patrick: douche and pansy
Harsh, I know, yet what would you expect from a guy sticking it where it doesn't belong, then crying a river, dropping head in shame and regret?

Lots of drama and crazy situations.

But he comes around.

Elaine puts a stop to his wandering ways and finds a new one to keep our guy in frenzy.
She's just never been into nice guys, even if her last long-term relationship shows differently and Patrick has a feel about him.
Perfect mix of all things bad and good, waiting to be discovered.
As it is, this naughty teacher has a magic touch and perfect solution.
The solution to the craziness of their lives.

One thing is certain.
To understand the dynamics of Patrick and Elaine's story, you've gotta keep an open mind. That's for sure. But what is all that craziness in comparison to the real deal?

"Whatever happened between us, in that moment, I knew the truth.
She was my heart and my soul. She was the one I'd never get over.
She was the one I would always keep."

"HOT! FUN! ENJOYABLE! 5 STARS!!! I highly recommend this story and can't wait to read more from Tia Louise!" --Aleatha Roming, NYT & USA Today bestselling author of the Consequences series

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

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.
