I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

Blog Tour: One To Hold: Review & Giveaway

One To Hold
Tia Louise
Adult Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Tia Louise(Self-Published)
Release Date: October 9, 2013
Overall Rating: 4/5 

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.

Melissa is grown woman who knows who she is and what she wants to do, and while I love all of these new adult books it was great to read about a woman who is actually a woman. When we first meet Melissa she is on a spa trip with her best friend enjoying girl time and from what we can tell she’s readying herself for something that’s about to happen when she gets back home. Then in the middle of girl time she meets the amazingly sexy Derek and the two have this mind blowing week long affair. But like all good things it must come to an end, everyone must pack their bags and head back to the real world and the life they left.
Now for me this is where the story gets really good. We finally realize what Melissa was escaping and what she plans to do about everything that’s going on at home. With really only the support and help of her best friend, Melissa packs up her life and tries to make a new start. But nothing is every as easy as it seems, and the things we want to hide in the dark have a way of coming to light. Derek is thrust back into Melissa’s life in a way she would have  never imagined but with everything going on can Melissa really trust her fragile heart to someone she barley even knows?
One To Hold was great story, the storyline flowed and was really well written. This story really spoke to me and made me feel a mixture of things. I liked the way the characters progressed and they really grew into themselves. Ms. Louise really captivates the readers and makes you want to know more. I loved the way it changed from something fun and flirty to something with passion, courage and meaning. My only issues with this book is that I thought it could have been a little longer.
I personally can’t wait to check out what Tia Louise has coming out next. So do yourself a favor and read One To Hold if you haven’t already. You don’t want to miss this one.
