One to Keep-ebooksm

Title: One To Keep

Series: One To Hold #2

Author: Tia Louise

Release Date: January 19, 2014

Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

New Synopsis

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

LOTS of sexual content. Patrick is a naughty boy until he meets Elaine. So there’s the warning–if you keep reading, please relax and have fun! (It’s meant to be fun. *wink*)

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 fiance 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.

OTK Teaser 1

New excerpt

She didn’t push me away or tell me no as I kissed her again with more urgency this time. She turned, and I kissed her cheek. 

“I’m too weak when it comes to you,” she murmured as I traced the line of her jaw with my lips. “I should be stronger.” 

My kisses moved to her temple and into her hairline. She was so beautiful, and I had her again. “You’re incredibly strong,” I murmured. “You held me off for three weeks when everything in me wanted to come here and take you back.” 

I could feel her breathing pick up as I kissed her, and the tension below my waist grew tighter. My mouth returned to hers, and it opened quickly, tongues uniting, her fingers now threading in my hair. 

Her lips were so sweet, but I moved my kisses to her chin, dropping down to her neck, and unfastening the buttons on her shirt, kissing every spot of delicate skin that was revealed as it came apart…

New My Review

StarStarStarStar

I received an ARC copy of this book for my honest spoiler free review.

One To Keep was an enjoyable read. We begin with Patrick Knight who relocates to Princeton to take on a position his brother left behind as a private investigator. He believes this is exactly what he needs; a fresh start after finding his fiancé cheating on him. He no longer believes in love, and thinks with his wrong head. And in not thinking properly he finds himself is a sticky situation. Patrick hooks up with 2 women; Kenny a young lady from a tattoo parlor and Star a deranged stalker.

Derek Alexander the other half of Alexander & Knight tries to defuse the situation and sends Patrick to Scottsdale, Arizona for a job. Being in Scottsdale is Patrick’s chance to gain control of the situation he has created and to redeem himself with Derek, which is exactly what he plans to do. However, while there he meets the lovely Elaine Merritt.

There was an instant attraction. Elaine has a beautifuleH soul. He took her sightseeing, to dinner and really just got to know each other. And when its time to say goodbye Patrick isn’t ready to let her go and she isn’t willing to have a long distance relationship. Eventually they fess up and try to work it out. There are more bumps in the road but I like where it all ended up.

I’ve read other reviews about this book and many have said that they connected with Kenny more than Elaine, well I didn’t. Kenny went through a rough time in her past; she lost the love of her life. This just gave them something in common; I did not feel that she was someone I’d want him to end up with. He needs someone strong by his side not someone who was just as lost and broken as he was.

The journey to Patrick and Elaine coming together with all the obstacles they faced in my opinion were well written. Let me also state that I did not read book 1 (though plan to ASAP 😉 ) I love Tia’s writing style and can’t wait to dig into more of her work.

      Hey Tia! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂 I try to be as thorough as I can when writing my reviews. I don’t normally read other reviews but wanted to see what others thought. And well as you can see I didn’t agree with most. 😉 I just hope people give the book the chance it deserves.
