Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway: One to Hold by Tia Louise

ONE TO HOLD Synopsis:

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

Derek Alexander is an ex-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.


Tia Louise doesn't waste any time jumping right into the story on this one. Very little background info is given from the start, we just get little pieces as we go. And you know what? I really liked it that way. Melissa Jones is on a spa vacation with her best friend when she spots sexy ex-Marine across the bar. She notices him immediately and to her surprise, he notices her right back. They immediately agree to a sex-cation of sorts - no strings attached fun for the week they are together. And since this is a romance novel, those no strings rules don't exactly work out so well, but they part ways at the end nonetheless. And I'm pleasantly surprised to say I was actually surprised at the ending. I was so engrossed in the book, I just did not see this particular twist coming. What started out as a somewhat generic, yet super-sexy read turned into a great romance novel! And it is a stand-alone - which seems so rare now, it makes me that much happier to have read it! :) 

One to Hold: 4/5 stars. 

About Tia Louise:

Tia Louise is a former journalist, world-traveler, and collector of beautiful men (who inspire ALL of her stories... *wink*)---turned wife, mommy, and novelist.

It's possible she has a slight truffle addiction. And she will never look at a family restroom the same way again.

ONE TO HOLD is her debut adult romance.
