***Blog Tour Stop and Giveaway*** One to Keep (One to Hold Book 2) by Tia Louise

ONE TO KEEP Synopsis (Book 2):

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 fiancĂ©e 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.

Jenn's Review:

When I plan to read a book I sometimes wonder, is it going to make me cry, laugh, melt… you know; all the good stuff. Fewer and fewer times does it do it all. One to Keep broke my heart, put it back together and made me melt from the inside out. We had already met Patrick and Elaine in One to Hold but didn’t know much about them. Now we get their story, and it is a great one! And let me tell you, the sex is scorching and I couldn’t get enough.

They meet while in Arizona. The girls are on a spa retreat and they men are there to work. And up until Patrick and Elaine meet, all he cares about is having a good time. If that good time ends with a woman in his bed, then he knows it was a good night. He wasn’t always that way though. He happened to walk in on his fiancĂ© getting it on with some guy from their apartment building and as you can guess, that was the end of that. So Patrick is coasting along, having as many good times that he can. First order of business is getting the tattoo fixed that has his ex’s name on it. Kenny or Kendra fixes his tattoo and he wastes no time asking her out for the next day. They know that it’s not going to go anywhere because she is moving. So why not enjoy the night to the fullest?! They end up forming a friendship with each other that neither was expecting.

Elaine has a hard time trusting men. She isn’t looking for anything serious. Never considered it, until Patrick. They have a wonderful week together and he isn’t ready to say goodbye. But that is all Elaine is ready to say. And when she walks out of the hotel to head home, Patrick has never felt that kind of pain. But they lives hours apart from each other. She doesn’t want that kind of relationship and he isn’t going to force her to see what they could have.

So who called whom first? And how long did it take? For that you’ll have to read it but just know 1) it happens and 2) it made me want to cry. My actual tears come later and you’ll see why.

They are great together! You can feel what they feel when they are together. I always hated it for them when their time would be over and it was time for the drive home. So one weekend Elaine decided to surprise Patrick and shows up at his place. Unfortunately, she isn’t the only one showing up there and it does not go well at all. I was shocked and heartbroken for all involved and wondered how it was going to work out! This is a lot to deal with!

This is where I bid you farewell. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did and I can’t wait to see what Tia Louise has in store for us in the future!
