    12. 4.5 StarsEvery once in awhile, I read a book that instantly, from page one, settles around me as if it was written just for me That s what I felt like with One to Hold I could really connect to this heroine I felt like she was me Not necessarily in the circumstances that her life has brought her to, but her mannerisms, her way of thinking, and her insecurities It is so hard for me to appreciate book heroines, and it was a relief to get this immediate sense of camaraderie with Melissa.Another sel [...]

    15. 4 ONE WEEK STAND Stars I thought this was a great debut from author Tia Louise The book was a bit on the short side so there wasn t as much character and story development as I would prefer but overall I really enjoyed the story.It was different then the typical NA MA storyline that we see so often And let s face it, you had me at the Warning WARNING Mature themes, strong language and sexual content Recommended for adult readers 18 only And it definitely didn t disappoint in that department The [...]

    20. This is my first time reading Tia Louise, and for her debut novel, I would say kudos to a job well done My first draw was the mature content warning d I must say, well delivered girl Melissa is a woman seeking change, a chance to heal before returning to her messy reality some hundreds of miles away Who knew a trip to the desert with her bestie would not only give her true pleasure but a chance for a better future.One glance across a bar into the steel determined eyes of a stranger and the tale [...]

    22. This book was wonderfully sweet and sexy because of one man Derek Alexander Blue eyes, strikingly blue eyes He was huge, His chest strained against the tight, black shirt he wore, and his biceps stretched the sleeves And Melissa Jones, Melissa and her mate, Elaine is on a spa retreat when she meets Derek The heat between is so hot and became undeniably steamy when they hooked up Melissa decided that she could do with an one night stand By the end of the retreat, both of them are kinda emotional [...]


    23. WOW, is all I can say, if this is Tia Louise s first foray into the erotic romantic fiction world, I for one can t wait to see what she has in store for us next.This talented lady has packed a whole lotta story into such a short book But the great thing is, it doesn t feel rushed, the flow of the story and the character plot development is really impressive.The chemistry between Derek and Melissa is off the charts right from the start of the book, and I have to say the sex scenes phew fans self [...]


    24. 4 Finding the right one StarsThis is my second Tia Louise book One to Hold is a standalone and is part of the One to Hold series I read book 7, One to Chase and I loved it so much I m going back and making my way through the series The writing style is a bit different in this one I would say it s a little formal and not as laid back like One to Chase Regardless, both writing styles work for me I m not too picky, I kind of like the variety because it kind of changes things up.This is Derek and M [...]

    26. I liked this story but didn t love it, primarily because of its structure It begins with the encounter between Melissa and Derek, before knowing anything about them It all makes sense as you delve further into the story but it s always difficult for me when a story begins with the sex and I haven t had a chance to invest in the characters The entire story is told from Melissa s point of view until the epilogue and we get Derek s perspective It was a great way to close this chapter of the trilogy [...]


    27. I loved this fun read It isn t long, yet it s a full length novel The story starts with a HOT, STEAMY, BANGd the steam continues, yet there is a STORY and well developed characters That doesn t always happen I enjoyed learning who were the good guys and who were the bad guyss weren t always as they seemed and the story alone kept me turning the page.The hot scenes made me turn the pages faster and faster I can t wait to read of what Tia Louise writes This fun, steamy, hot, well developed story [...]

    29. 2.5 3 StarsThis one just didn t turn out the way I had hoped it would For the first 30% of the book I struggled with making a connection with the two main characters Derek and Melissa It probably is a case of it is me and my mood rather than the book itself Because honestly the writing was good, there were some pretty steamy sex scenes but I just found myself wanting a little bit I just felt things were rushed There was a twist I absolutely didn t expect and that made things a bit interesting [...]
