"Great fun book with all the right ingredients: hot man, independent woman, intrigue, fun, and hot sex!" ---Aleatha Romig, author of the Consequences series

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 elements of erotic romance, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

My rating: 4 of 5 ⭐️

Taking over for his older brother, the Knight, in the investigation companyAlexander & Knight, Patrick knight has just settled into his new apartment in Princeton, where the company is located. Burned by his ex-fiancé whom he found cheating on him with a neighbour, he is eager to open a new chapter in his life, one that does not include any kind of long term commitment. He plans to simply screw any lingering pain out of his system.

Every woman he encounters seems to offer an opportunity. The secretary at his new office, who isn't interested. The girl at the tattoo shop, who bites, but as it turns out is better suited as a friend. And finally the girl from the temp agency, who seems to throw herself at him on day one, and who is he to hold her back? But when the last one appears to want to cling, he takes off on a job that'll keep him in the hot desert heat of Arizona for a few days.

That is where he meets her. Elaine. A beautiful blonde breath of fresh air who immediately makes his heart jump. Elaine seems to have the same instant response to him and while he is there, they spend all their time together. But Elaine is not interested in a rebound relationship and especially not one that requires a six hour drive to see each other. Depressed and frustrated, Patrick returns home to Princeton.

Staying busy to keep his mind off Elaine, isn't really working and when Elaine calls him in tears, he is off like a shot. Staying away from each other wasn't working so well for either, but now that they are together, they still have the distance to contend with.

HASH(0xb2ec3540) out of 5 stars WOW! Loved This Story!! Jan. 16 2014
By Ree-Ka - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I have to start off by saying Tia Louise did it again. I absolutely loved Derek and Melissa's story. Derek and Melissa's story was book 1 One to Hold; which had its own HEA. This is book 2 in the series and tells Patrick and Elaine's story, which I loved just as much as the first. This is a standalone but I do recommend reading One to Hold first. Not only was it a great story, but you will get an insight to Derek and Melissa's character when reading this book.

Patrick Knight is newly separated after finding his out his fiancee was cheating on him. Patrick decides on a fresh start after that and gets in business with Derek working as his business partner as a private detective. Also starting fresh he knew he didn't want to get back into a relationship. He was going to live the single life and have fun at it. After having on heck of a one night stand and one messed up office hook up. That could not have turned out any worse, Derek sends him to the desert for a new job. While working in the desert that is when he met Elaine.

Elaine went to the desert to visit the spa and get away for the week with her best friend Melissa. Not looking for anything other than a little relaxation and to take care of her friend while there. When she sees Patrick she sees no harm in interacting with him. But what is going to happen after the week at the spa and one amazing time with Patrick? Not looking to get in another relationship and a long distance one at that she tries to keep it simple.

Now I know I haven't given you much other than what was in the synopsis. But nobody likes spoilers so I will say this was a great HEA story. I loved the fact that this was from Patrick's POV. To me recently it has been hard to find a good story written from the guys POV. It seems the story lines just don't come out right. The man will come off to harsh or even to feminine. It just doesn't play out well through the book. But not in this case; Tia nailed it head on with this love story. It was a heart wrenching story where the guy wanted the girl and of course his slip ups in character could cost him what he is trying so hard to prove he wants. I would absolutely recommend this story to my friends and anyone else looking for a great Hot read. I can't wait to read more from Tia. I know she has a novella coming out for Derek's and Melissa's story, I can't wait to get my hands on that one also!

HASH(0xb2ec3594) out of 5 stars Love at first sight! Jan. 15 2014
By K A Street - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
My rating: 4.5 of 5

I was kindly given an ARC in return for a honest review. 

Patrick Knight needs a new start. After finding his Fiancé cheating with the neighbor, he promises to make a change. No more relationships, love, or trust! Patrick moves to join Derek Alexander as a partner in a investigations firm. On a business trip, he meets Elaine, a vacationing school teacher and everything changes. It is heartbreaking love at first sight for both of them. Elaine is struggling after ending a long term relationship and Patrick's mistakes haunt them and threaten their happy ever after. No spoilers here, but I loved this story! It had twists and turns, angst and hot sex scenes. I was pulling for Patrick and Elaine the whole time. And, a new character who becomes a big part of their lives! 

This book is the companion story to One to Hold. It is a standalone with no cliffhanger, but I strongly recommend reading One to Hold before One to Keep. First of all, it's a great book, but it will also give you backstory and enrich the journey this book takes you on. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in a hot steamy romance!

HASH(0xb2ec3d38) out of 5 stars Great Sequel May 28 2014
By Amjedi - Published on Amazon.com
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.
