Product description

Product Description

"All the right ingredients: hot man, independent woman, intrigue, fun, and hot sex!" -Aleatha Romig, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

* International Bestseller * #1 Bestseller in Military Romance eBooks. *

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 fiancée 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.

A STAND-ALONE, ONE TO HOLD NOVEL. Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and heavy subject matter, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Great read, loved Patrick and Elaine. Love the chemistry between the two of them loved the little highlights of Melissa and Derek. Loved how you brought Kenny In the story. I look forward to reading more on these amazing characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Sequel 29 May 2014
By Amjedi - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the second book in the One to Hold saga, stand alone books that feature super hot, sexy alpha males and strong heroines. The first book is about Melissa and Derek, who meet at a spa in Arizona and fall in love. This book is about Elaine, Melissa's best friend and Patrick, Derek's business partner. Patrick is younger than Derek, more impulsive and kind of a screw-up with a good heart. He and Elaine also fall in love at the spa but have a series of obstacles to overcome because of some poor choices Patrick made, won't say what all of them are so I don't spoil the plot, but lets just say that a lot of Patricks problem is he sometimes thinks more with his little 'head' than his theoretically big head! But thru all the obstacles, they find a way to make it work.

Some of the situations they go thru may seem far fetched, but I actually know of several couples who have similar obstacles. It just goes to show you that love really can conquer most things if we are willing to forgive and not allow past mistakes dictate our futures.

What I really liked about both books (besides the incredibly hot sex!) was that the heroines were strong women, who the men respected, they liked that the heroines were strong and wouldn't put up with any do-do, it made the heroes respect them. I loved the fact that both of the men were not afraid to tell the heroines that they loved them, they didn't play little games or worry about being viewed as wimpy, neither man was "too proud to beg"! The men were strong alpha men but never domineering, one of the sweeter scenes in One to Keep is when during an erotic moment,Patrick ties Elaine up. When she starts to protest and ask that he stops, he becomes alarmed, not realizing that she was role playing. They then have a heartfelt talk about the importance of using safe words. This was not only a tender moment between the couple but was also a really responsible way for the author to convey the importance of both partners engaging in sexual behaviors that are safe and mutually gratifying for both partners; something you don't always see in many erotic romance novels. The author also does a great job in creating erotic romantic scenes. So many authors focus just on the sex that after awhile it gets boring, there's hot sex but no romance. Tia Louise's books are memorable and are books you will want to re-read because they feature both.

Once again, the only reason why I am giving this book 4 rather than 5 stars is that it's too short, the ending kind of sneaks up on you and is a little rushed, I'd like to see the next book be longer with a more developed ending. Can't wait too read the next book about A-hole Sloane and the book after that about Kenny.

*small spoiler*

I was honestly nervous about Patrick and Elaine’s story because in Derek and Melissa's story a Kenny and s baby is mentioned so I didn't know what was going on

Elaine is a beautiful fit blonde middle school teacher with a heart this size of Alaska and she just wants to be loved and loved on. Coming out of a crappy relationship and trying to keep her best friend Melissa together they head off to the desert for a girls week

Patrick knight and some major insta love actions happens and they think they only have a week together but when you add deep feelings in the mix what do you do??

Patrick knight is struggling with trust and his emotions as he's coming out of a crappy relationship and screws up by screwing around with the wrong women and he's got secrets that will possible destroy him and his new relationship with Elaine

This is a mustt read steamy sexy insta love book where you will fall deeply for both Patrick and Elaine :)

Patrick was recovering from a bad breakup, he walked in on his fiancé having sex with his neighbor. To get over his broken heart, Patrick sleeps around with most women which clearly gets him into trouble. Elaine is a school teacher who changes everything about Patrick but struggles with his past.

The storyline was good but I felt Elaine was too immature and kept running, making Patrick chase her, which of course he did.

I fell in love with Patrick and Elaine. I adore Kenny. I was so hoping for Patrick and Kenny to find the love to help the other heal (they did). I was sad BRIEFLY then I fell for Elaine. But Kenny? Then, uh ohhh. OMG! I was freaking out for all of them wondering how can this be. I was happy but sad. I'm trying not to give any spoilers. I'll admit I happy ugly cried at the end. Beautiful story of different kinds of love coming together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book!! 26 February 2016

Man! I thought Derek was the hot one in One to Hold. I couldn’t wait to dig into book 2. We still get to see Derek pop in every now and then, but this is Patrick’s story. Patrick has a rough start where his luck with the ladies isn’t all that great. We meet Kenny, who I will admit, I loved! Kenny has a pretty significant role in Patrick’s book and I am excited to know that there is a book waiting for me that tells her story.
Elaine was introduced in the first book as Melissa’s best friend. She is a strong woman who is always in control of her life, until Patrick. These two go together perfectly. They click right away and their connection is red hot.
After reading the first two books, I am beyond thrilled that there are so many books in this series. Every turn of the page, my interest and excited me grows. I need more. I think that if you enjoy this genre, you will be very happy you gave this book a chance! I recommend it!
