5.0 out of 5 stars One to Leave a Five Star Review!! 30 December 2014
By Loves to Read Romance - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Where do I start? Stuart is suffering in so very many ways - physical, mental, emotional - and from so many things. He tries to fight one problem on his own, but in no way would his brother in arms, Derek - his Commanding Officer from the Marines at one time - nor his real brother, Patrick, leave him to his own devices. Not even at Stuart's insistence. Then Mariska, who'd met him only once, who'd felt that deep, human spirit connection we often find in the love of our life, follows him. She can't resist the pull she felt, that spark, the desire to know him.
Both characters are so real. Often we read books and there's something unbelievable about the story. I totally related to every single feeling - her quirks (which I totally LOVE because my great-grandma was part gypsy and had similar abilities!), watching a loved one go through something similar to Stuart, their individual pain, the hurt they go through as a couple, and the love at first sight. It's all real. And the fire that erupts from their sexual chemistry will ignite within you! Phew!!
Tia's books just keep getting better and better. I really can't recommend them enough! While this is technically a standalone, you can read it first, but it will leave you wanting more!!! I highly suggest reading One to Leave, and then going back to the beginning with One to Hold, reading the entire series in order - including reading One to Leave all over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars This cowboy needs love 25 February 2016
By merwojo - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I first have to say this was the first book I read by Tia Louise. It was love at first read. Mariska is a free spirited, loving hippie. You can't help but love her. She is creative, loving, and compassionate. Stuart is broken. He is an alpha male with war wounds and resistant to change. There is a lot of turmoil between the two. Mariska has so much to give and is willing to give it all to the right person. Stuart doesn't think he is worthy of love and has many demons to battle. They say opposites attract and they couldn't be more right in this situation. I will definitely be reading more by Tia Louise.

5.0 out of 5 stars sometimes dark, occasionally magical, but always rich and delicious 25 February 2016

4.5 shiny stars

There is predictability in the quality of Tia Louise's work, but not in her stories.

In One To Leave, the previously touched upon characters of Mariska and Stuart are brought to life.
Stuart, thus far a vague shadow figure, poorly understood, comes forward as an intriguingly complex and rather dark but delicious man, whose straight-lined and straight-laced life has taken a step onto a slippery and damaging side road. Reluctantly facing some of the fall out of his poor decisions, he comes face to face with a woman who instantly embeds herself on his soul.

Mariska is a contradiction. She comes across full of star-eyed innocence and perhaps even naivité yet at the same time displays an ancient wisdom that seems in conflict. She is irreverent and open, intuitive and loving, and relies heavily on her heart to guide her way. The instant she meets Stuart, she instinctively knows her path.

This story is not without its pitfalls, there are steep arcs of character evolution, in particular Stuart's, that make for a compelling read.
Theirs is a clear example of insta-love but written beautifully with a touch of magic. As a couple, these two are wonderfully contrasted, making their chemistry all the more believable.

My only note (and half-star) is for the large number of POV's this book is rich. It gives a 360 degree view of the story, but feels at times a little crowded with the many differing angles.

I highly recommend this sometimes dark, occasionally magical, but always rich and delicious novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars One heck of an opening to the book! WOW! 26 February 2016
By Dana Busenbark - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book opens up with one heck of a combat scene, written so well that I felt like I was actually there. Wow. Marines, overseas, getting ready to come home some for good, others for a break, then to return to the middle east. Next we see Nikki, and we see her waiting for Stuart's return from Saudi at the airport. this is where we get into the nitty gritty and find out Stuart's story, and maybe more about Patrick and Derek as well. Watching the personal hell that Stuart is going through, seeing how he and Mariska meet, and what happens was very interesting to read. Watching him fight against everything that is happening, trying to get back to what he knew is hard. What happens when his breaking point comes? What does he do? Go back to Saudi or stay in the states? What happens when Nikki shows up with his mother for Thanksgiving. What does she say and do to Stuart that almost ruins everything?
