***Jenn's Review of One to Hold by Tia Louise***

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.

Jenn's Review

One to Hold was a fast paced romance that in my opinion did not drag or slow down once. Tia threw in some shockers that had my stomach dropping like I’m on a roller coaster! I really enjoyed this story about Melissa and Derek.
Melissa’s best friend, Elaine, decides she needs to take a trip. On this trip, she will begin her new life. She will do what she wants to do. She can even decide what she wants to drink. She is getting away from a life where her decisions were made for her. Melissa has filed for divorce from an abusive and cheating husband. Not to mention just downright sleazy! Wait until you hear all about what he’s been up to!
Melissa meets Derek while sitting at the bar, sipping on a drink that tastes disgusting. But, she’s drinking it because she got to order it. There is an immediate attraction between them and what happens shortly after meeting is flat out HOT! Melissa has surprised herself but at the same time she isn’t sure if she can face Derek again. So when he asks if she will meet him the next night, she can’t bring herself to go. But what can you do when all your thoughts end up back to this man? Well, you let go of what’s holding you back and give in to the desire!! It’s only a week, right?
Melissa comes home a different woman. She faces her fears and tells her soon to be ex that she isn’t changing her mind. She wants nothing of his, just his signature. And it certainly helps that she finds information on him. Let’s just say it’ll push him to sign on the dotted line. But she also found something else and she certainly wasn’t prepared for or expecting it. Hell, I wasn’t expecting it!
All this leads to her new beginning. She had to leave; there was no choice in the matter. But what happens when people just don’t want to let go? Well, it gave me a story that made me anxious, swoon and needing a fan on high! I only wish that I had more on Derek. He remains a bit of a mystery to me but, hopefully we can get to know him more in the future. *wink wink
