I received an ARC from Tia Louise in exchange for an honest review
I really enjoyed reading this book! I don't want to give any spoilers away, but this book shows fate can be a twisted b*tch, there really is no other way to put it, you will all understand what I mean, once you read the book..which you all should do!!
Slayde is a hot mess! He's carrying around a secret/past he'd like to forget, he's made some big mistakes and has a lot of regrets. He believes he's worthless and undeserving of anything....
Enter Kenny! Their 1st meeting is not what you would expect, but the feelings and sparks flowed between them almost straight away!
Kenny also has had a sad passed and made her fair share of mistakes, but she's a strong character. We met her 1st in One To these are stand alone's so no cliffhangers, but I do suggest reading all the books in order to know the characters better as they do appear in each other's story's! Theres more I could say but I don't want to give anything away! I'll last say, this book is great, characters are written well and are likeable, some pretty hot scenes as well and a twist that you may or may not see coming..and it sucks...but a great ending! Read this series, you won't be sorry xx

One to Love is the fourth book in the 'One to Hold' series and whilst it can be read as a stand alone, I would recommend reading the other books first as reading them out of order would give spoilers.

One to Love centres around Kenny (Kendra) and Slayed. Kenny is a fitness instructor who after the losing her husband in a brutal way at a young age has lost her faith in love... until Slayed rolls into town.

Slayed is very mysterious, coming into town to make a fresh start, his intentions are to keep himself to himself but he wasn't anticipating the strong attraction he feels to the sexy fitness instructor.

They try to deny their attraction but after a hot work out session, both Slayed and Kenny know that its an impossible feat and start a relationship.

But all is not what it seems and when Kenny finds out what Slayed's secret is, will she be able to forgive him or will it tear them apart?

A story about love, loss, heartbreak, forgiveness and redemption, this book will take you on a roller coaster of emotions.

A really great read and I highly recommend it

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Heartfelt Store of the Redemptive Power of Love 6 April 2015
By Amjedi - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What a great story! This is the story of Kenny, Patrick's baby mama, and Slayde, a former boxer who is suffering from a lot of guilt and shame bc he killed a man several years ago. Kenny is attacked by some a-holes and Slayde saves her. Later, Slayde gets a job as a janitor at the gym where Kenny works as a fitness trainer in a small town in New Jersey. They are both initially wary of each other since they both are carting around a complete set of Samsonite baggage, but eventually they fall head over heels in love.

Watching these two hesitantly fall in love is such a joy to witness, particularly when they have both been so wounded in their lives before they met each other. Just when you think everything is going to work out just right for them, the author slams you with a whammy, with a situation (I won't say what it is but I REALLY didn't see that one coming) that really seems insurmountable. After a few months and some physical and mental journeys, the two love birds find their way back to each other and their HEA.

One of the best lines in the book is: "I feel like my life is one big test" and Kenny's friend tells her that maybe it's not the tests but the lessons you learn from them. Now, those are words we can all live by.

My only complaint about this book and really all the books in the series is that they end too abruptly. I really do want to know if Kenny and Slayde get married, have babies, will Kenny want to parent her son Lane full time if she and Slayde get married, how will Derek & Patrick feel about Kenny's relationship with Slayde now that they know about his past?

Inquiring minds want to know & I look forward to reading more books in the series where we will hopefully get the answers to our questions.

5.0 out of 5 stars intense romance, the unbelievable attraction, and the heart-pounding suspense 27 December 2014
By Shayna Renee's Spicy Reads - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
~*~ 4.5 STARS ~*~

As a HUGE fan to this amazing series, I was ecstatic and over the moon to read Kenny's story. Kenny, or Kendra Woods, was introduced to us in Patrick's book, and I couldn't stop thinking about her ever since. She needed a happily every after, and by god, did Ms. Louise delivery an outstanding one for her. Some would say that Kenny wasn't a character favorite in the series, but to me, I related to her in so many ways, so in turn, she actually was a favorite of mine.

Slayde Bennett is the hero of this story, and can I just say, YUMMY! Ex-fighter, tattooed god, bad-ass persona battling with his own demons. That right there, are perfect ingredients for a hero that will knock your socks off, steal your heart, and run away with it. There is a story behind those beautiful, tortured eyes, and you will be on pins and needles, devouring each and every page, waiting to hear it.

The build up of Kenny and Slayde's encounter was pure torture. But with an absolute explosive first kiss had me holding my breath, the wait was well worth it.

The intense romance, the unbelievable attraction, and the heart-pounding suspense is what makes this story kick ass! Be prepared for a twist in the story that will have you dropping your jaw and screaming out loud. Be prepared for your heart to sink into your stomach. Be prepared to be broken, but most importantly be prepared to experience a love story that defies all odds!

5.0 out of 5 stars What to do when Karma b**ch slaps you in the head?! 23 September 2015
By Elizabeth - Published on
This is one Tia Louise book to fLove! The emotions going through this book will take you through the ringer but you will enjoy the ride. Slayde Bennett is a man trying to claw his way out of the black hole that has been his life to date. He’s gone from riding the high of being a successful fighter, having the world as his personal playground, to losing it all. The author gives us a lot of insight into his character, how his fragile state of mind plays into his fight to make a new man of himself. He recognizes his selfishness of the past and has no desire to go back, in fact his career of a fighter is definitely over, but he still struggles to see himself as redeemable.
Kenny (Kendra) Woods’ life, however, is on the up-swing. She’s got a job she enjoys, good friends, and is on great terms with her baby daddy and his girlfriend who are currently raising her son. [ If you are new to this series, the backstory on Kenny and Patrick and their son will not leave you feeling left out. You can easily read One To Love as a standalone.] Kenny’s had a hard start to her life, too, but you can tell her confidence is building and to her surprise, her broken heart is healing. She does not hide from her past and that shows a personal strength, too, because owning up to the fact that her son has a better life with his Dad and acknowledging that her grief over a murdered husband is fading cannot be easy.
So how do these two come together?? Like a freight train!! Kenny’s warmth and giving character reaches out and surrounds Slayde and he never has a chance! He’s very cautious, but it’s sweet the way he’s totally undone by the feelings he gets from Kenny. She, too, is overwhelmed from the beginning by her feelings for Slayde. This love is not perfect, hence the Karma reference. This plot twist was a good one and helped to ground the romance and keep it from falling into the insta-love category. Without giving any spoilers, I can’t say much about the conflict other than it takes a strength not many could admit to, to overcome this difference and continue on with a relationship.
I really liked both of these characters and the way the chapters are split into their own voices gives you a deeper insight than if the H and h were relegated to trading out a paragraph or two. Fans of this series will love seeing glimpses of Patrick and Elaine and even the prelude to Mariska and Stuart.
I received a free copy of One To Love in the anthology, 9 Ways to Fall in exchange for an honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars One to Love: ✮✯✮✯ 4 Second Fated Stars ✮✯✮✯ 25 October 2014
By Ms.Meesh - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
"Tattoos, bad boys, love...Boxing, fame, fortune… Loss.”

Can the heart truly heal? Do second chance exists for broken hearts? And the answer is YES!! In One to Love by Tia Louise, she showcases the power of love, redemption, forgiveness, and second chances. In this heartbreaking and yet touching story, two strangers are destined to meet. Destined to find each other. Maybe fate played a hand for them to meet. But all that doesn’t matter when the hearts speaks and knows it found its missing piece. Like a jigsaw puzzle, Kenny and Slayde were two broken pieces but when they are molded together, they are the perfect fit. Two strangers who healed each other emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Against all odds, they showcase the real meaning of second chances at love and life. So in One to Love, can love be found a second time around? Or is too late?

"True love destroys fear. I covers sin. It's stronger than any human emotion."

The main aspects of One to Love are second chances and forgiveness. The key to unlock a broken heart lies within many doors. It is not instant but takes time. Through time, comes healing and acceptance. Though the heart and mind can sometimes be fickle, the truth is absolute. You cannot deny what the heart wants. And in One to Love, Ms. Tia Louise shows us that Kenny and Slayde is that one couple who found forgiveness and love in each other. Simply, they healed each other.

Kendra (Kenny) Woods endured so much in her life that her story is heartbreaking alone. Widowed at a young age, she had an uphill battle finding closure and letting her heart heal. Can the heart truly heal when its been shattered to pieces?

Slayde Bennett is an ex-fighter who has a dark past. His demons consumes him and eats him alive. For so long, he lived with anger, rage and darkness. He didn’t feel worthy of the light till he met Kenny. She was the one exception. She was his light to bring him out of the darkness. She healed him and brought life back to his beating heart. Together, Kenny and Slayde healed each other. They found happiness, healing, and love in each other. But as they continued their relationship, the past and presents begins to collide. The truth begins to unravel. They say the truth will set you free, but what if this this secret can destroy your heart and at a chance at love? Is love worth the risk?

One to Love by Tia Louise was a story that hooked me. It was emotional, heartbreaking and touching all wrapped in one. Ms. Tia Louise brought you a raw story of two vulnerable main characters. Love hurts but love also heals. The beauty of this book is the aspect of second chances at love and life. And Tia did just that. She showed us what it means to have your life completely shattered. And when you think the shards of a broken heart can’t be mended, Ms. Louise will show you all you need is someone to pick up the pieces and glue them back together. The pieces can then be whole. Love is not perfect. It may have scars and a broken past, but once you are ready, it can be healed. The heart can beat again and LOVE.

5.0 out of 5 stars damn these couples are on fire !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! there are great friendships , love and heartache all wrapped into ONE !! 18 October 2014
By amie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Damn , my 1st read of Tia Louise and I will be reading more !! I am thrilled to read the previous books of the series , although a stand alone if you had been reading along you would already know most of the main characters. I am looking forward to reading their back stories and the yumminess they have to share !! This book had so much hot sex I can only imagine the other books had it too !! I love reading about couples in love or just starting out that have that spark and great chemistry. Helps to remind me of the fun we can and should be having with the one we love !!

This book is about Slayde and Kenny.
Since I had not read the previous books I did not know much about Kenny. She had suffered a major loss , had a child with a guy she is great friends with , works at a gym and is an artist or at least had been to school for that. For years she has not been able to get over her loss and date any guys. Her friends all want her to get laid and move on but the sadness has her trapped and she just cannot get out of her own way. That is until Slayde shows up. Slayde has a past , a past he is trying to keep hidden. An attempt to start over he lands himself a job at the Jungle Gym from Rook , but this is not what puts him in Kenny's path. When she finally caves and heads out for a night of reckless fun she winds up in a scary situation and Slayde comes to the rescue. For a second it is tense for them to find out they work together , but damn after that second they are on fire and watch out or they will burn you up !! I enjoyed their journey , though filled with fun and hot sex they had a major hurdle to overcome and they had no clue it was even coming. I had no clue , holy crap I was shocked , that thought never even came to mind......
Once secrets are out in the open and they see how life would be without each other they suck it up and choose to forgive and move on together. I look forward to more from them since I see how the series flows I know they will be around !! I look forward to Stuart's story and of course catching up with what I missed !!
