4.0 out of 5 stars 4 “What now?” stars! 2 July 2015
By Jennifer L - Book Btches Blog - Published on
Just like all the other parts of this series, that I have read, One to Save kept me entertained throughout the entire story. The continuation of Derek and Melissa’s story is not an easy one. They struggle, but ultimately their love will get them through.

“Will she forgive me? Will she understand?”

Derek has a secret and it could end it all for him and Melissa. But I never expected it to go how it did. I expected so much drama, but it was all maturely done, though…if that makes sense. LOL!! There wasn’t a lot of whining and crying and pity party crap that I expected. This was a story of two mature adults doing what is best for their child and their hearts. Neither was wrong in the choices they made, both had good intentions even if it didn’t seem that way.

“I’m sorry. You’re a day late and a promise short.”

Derek struggles more in this part of the story and my heart shattered for him at times. Not that I didn’t hurt for Melissa, also, but you will see what I mean when you read it. I am still a tad confused about some things that have taken place in the series, but other questions were answered for me. I love how each of these books is about a certain couple but the reader still receives so much about the other characters at the same time. The author has done a fantastic job of intertwining the characters into each other’s lives.

“Love is a risk.”

So, I have nothing else to say other than this is a good addition to a Book Bitch recommended series, especially for readers who enjoy the long haul with their characters :)

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Melissa and Derek as a couple 2 January 2016
By Franci Neill - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
4.5 Magnificent Stars

When they say every action has a consequence, they weren't lying. Unfortunately, for Derek Alexander his actions in One to Protect have come back to haunt him but not in the way he thought they would. I literally sat in shock as I read how this all fleshed itself out.

I love Melissa and Derek as a couple. They're beautiful together and the love they have for each other is so powerful and consuming, as I read I kept thinking in my head I hope nothing happens to come between them and their love. Of course, there has to be some angst in this book as all the prior actions in One to Protect have to now be paid for. Melissa knows that something is bothering Derek, but he tries to play it off. He still knows that Melissa is the woman he belongs with....

"Melissa is my heart and my soul and my life and my love..."

When the story opens, they're living in Wilmington in a beach cottage with their adorable little boy Dex and planning their wedding. Derek is still working with the Alexander and Knight and life is moving along. Until that one day...

"Inevitably, inexorably, as long as I lived on this planet, my future would lead to that moment in a small conference room in Baltimore when I got revenge."

And how this comes about, had me on the edge of my seat and staying up late into the night because there was no way I was putting my kindle down until I turned that last page. The way their circle of friends came around them to make sure Derek and Melissa get their HEA.

When Melissa finds out what happened in Baltimore, which was by accident, she is beyond shocked that not only did Derek keep this from her, but what he was capable of. Derek tries to explain/justify his actions...

"I lost myself in the darkness of trying to protect you..."

Needless to say, there are some very tumultuous weeks for these two, which includes Derek paying the ultimate price as he refuses to let anyone take the blame for his actions. While Melissa is devastated by what's happening in their lives, questioning if their wedding will happen, and that they'll be together until the end of time, she still desperately loves this beautiful, strong man who swept her off her feet for the first time in the desert of Arizona...

"Looking back, I realize how precious our love is, how much I have to fight for it."

As the story progresses, and issues are resolved, and we get closer to their forever, there are some side stories that have resolutions in BIG ways and doors are opened for future books. I was in tears at the very early morning hours today as I read a letter that Derek wrote to Melissa on their wedding day that once again showed how strong and eternal their love is...

"My love. My life. My family. I’ll be the one down front waiting to make you mine."

I highly recommend these books to you and because of the overlapping story lines, it would be best to at least read the first two books that are their books, One to Hold and One to Protect. I wouldn't stop with those though... just read entire series you'll not be sorry!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great addition to the series 1 April 2015
By Dirty Girl Romance - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Inevitably, inexorably, as long as I lived on this planet, my future would lead to that moment in a small conference room in Baltimore when I got revenge.

One To Save is the continuation of Derek and Melissa's story that we originally met in One to Hold. If you haven't read that book yet, I'd really encourage you to do so along with One to Protect. You just wouldn't have the same appreciation or understanding for these characters without having their entire back story. The author does bring the reader up to date about everything that happened with them without having it be redundant, but I'd still recommend reading it in order. Actually, I'd recommend reading the entire series in order because there is a story ARC between all the characters that continues throughout the series. While each book is technically a standalone, you would enjoy the stories so much more having read them in order. The characters from previous books always make an appearance, and it would help you to truly understand each individual character so much more. Slayde from One to Love makes an appearance here, and trust me when I tell you that you would have a much better understanding of what happens in this book having read his book, as well as Stuart from One to Leave. Read the series in order is basically what you should be taking away from this ;)
I lost myself in the darkness of trying to protect you...

Derek is dealing with the fallout of a decision he made in protecting Melissa, his now fiance. Although he'd do it all over again if he had to, it still doesn't stop him from thinking about the repercussions. Keeping it from her is also a decision that he is agonizing over.

Their relationship wasn't one built on sunshine and promises. They first met when he was hired by Melissa's abusive husband hired him to follow her. But when he learned the full truth of her story, things changed. They've been through their share of trouble and have come out of it stronger. But this just may be the one secret that may shatter everything that they are once and for all.

It's not just the repercussions from the event that threaten Derek. There is also someone that is determined to make him pay and take away everything that he holds dear.

This was a definite page turner of a book. I'm not typically a fan of reading about the same couple for longer than two books simply because the drama begins to feel manufactured. That was not the case here at all. This really was a very natural progression of events. Considering everything that has already happened, you can see that it was all coming to a head. Sure it packs a good punch of angst and emotion, but it fit their story. You can see why it happened the way it did and why they needed this book to really bring closure to their relationship.

Derek is everything I love about my alphas; fiercely protective, dirty talking, loving but with that added edge. I loved him. Melissa is the perfect counterpart to his rough edges. I really enjoyed seeing them go through their ups and downs, and especially their ups.

You get a lot more on the fallout of Stuart and Nikki's story here. As much as I hated Nikki in Stuart's book, I have to say she really grew on me here. Tia definitely has me intrigued enough to really want a book for her. Though I can't say I'm too disappointed about the upcoming book's characters. That epilogue was smokin' hawt. Tia definitely knows how to hook you in with the way her books end. While she gives you the perfect HEA for the couple, she reels you right in with a hell of a tease for the next one. A fantastic new edition to the series. I cannot freaking wait for the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!! 31 March 2015
By Holly Leffler - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Of all of the book boyfriends out there, you know that one that just shines head and shoulders above all of the rest for you? The one that is just the embodiment of the perfect man…yeah, for me that is Derek Alexander!! So to say I get a little excited when my amazing girl Miss Tia writes me us a new story about him is a GROSS UNDERSTATEMENT!! In case I wasn’t clear I LOVE DEREK ALEXANDER, in all his big, dark, dangerously sexy glory!

Ok, enough of my slobbering over Derek because truth be told if any other woman besides me should get to have him I am so happy it’s Melissa! I adore Mel almost as much as Derek and they are the hottest, most adorable couple. Now without giving anything away, you know, because I was lucky enough to get to read this before it is released, I will tell you my favorite couple has to navigate some pretty significant hurdles in this installment of their story. Yes, my perfect Derek messes up quite royally, a couple times actually, but after some suffering on both their parts, we can breathe a sigh of relief, it will all work out, I promise :). We also get to meet a couple new characters and I can’t wait for their story. As well as spend some time with all of our old friends from the previous stories.

I will admit I spent some time in tears, which I seem to do in every one of Miss Tia’s books! But have no fear, I assure you a HEA . Which is what I kept telling myself as I was ugly crying a bit lying in bed last night as I devoured this book.

If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of this series, and you are a lover of romance then I urge you to get them!! READ THESE BOOKS!!! I assure you, you won’t be disappointed. I was given One to Hold (book 1) by this wonderful author quite some time ago for review and I fell madly in love! With the characters, the story and the author!
