My Rating: 4.5 of 5⭐️

Melissa spots him across the bar at the hotel, where her best friend has dragged her for a week's worth of spa treatments. An escape, from what she has set in motion back home. She knows she has to go back and deal with the fall out, but for now, she is going to try and enjoy this one week of relaxation. She will need all her strength whe she gets back, in order to tie up all the loose ends and make a new beginning.

She is sitting alone at the bar when Derek sees her, and without hesitation he starts making his way over. He is in Arizona for a conference, giving lectures on Internet Security, one of the things his company specializes in. He had just wandered in for a drink when he spotted her, beautiful, but looking unbelievably sad. Not quite sure what is drawing him, he feels the need to make her smile.

Their attraction is immediate and combustible, and for the duration of their one week stay in this Arizona hotel, they can't seem to help but continue to seek each other out. What neither counted on, were the growing intimacy and emotions, as well as the piling up of questions and uncertainties. But when the week is up, they each have to return and deal with life as they knew it, but what did they know?

*****

Wow, hose me down!!!! ....... This is the second time I have been blown away by the quality of a debut novel, written by a journalist or former journalist. There is something about the ease with which this book seems to flow. A certain rhythm and confidence, all it's own, that you don't often see in debut novels. Don't get me wrong.....those other novels can still be excellent, but the writers are often still finding their comfort zone, their 'groove', if you will.

"One to Hold" is definitely ONE TO READ!! I was drawn into the characters and the story right from the start. It is more than just a love story. It is a story of taking chances, finding one's inner strength and being true to yourself for what you want in life. Melissa's thought : He was safe with me, I felt safe with him, and I wanted him to hold me forever so badly. Tia Louise touches many subjects with the characters and I will read more from her in the future! Thanks Tia!

This book is just sex strung together by a thin plot - well written if that's what you're looking for. The author has an intense and graphic writing style worth reading, but repetitive when the subject matter is all the same. I enjoyed the suspense created by the delayed reveal of the backstory to the plot. I would read other books from Louise if they had more substance but not sure I will risk it.

I felt the intensity of the characters, and the realness in their interactions. The other characters were very memorable, and makes you wanting more of their stories too. Very hot and exciting!

I loved this book from start to finish. Spa getaways, a sexy undercover hero, and an interesting story line. I am looking forward to book two.

One to Hold grabbed my attention from the first chapter, so much I couldn't put it down. Melissa Jones & her best friend go on a spa vacation in Arizona for a week - at this time we aren't told a lot but it seems Melissa is running from something. Derek Alexander can't look away when he see's Melissa in a crowded bar. Melissa is instantly attracted to Derek in a way she's never felt before, but feels the need to run due to her past. This week for Melissa is to be about change but is she ready for it? Chemistry between these two are undeniable.

Tia Louise has created such interesting characters here. I loved the way piece by piece we the readers found out the truth. I'm really good at guessing/figuring out the plot to movies and books and honestly I didn't see some of these twists and turns. This story was hot & spicy and thrilling & heartbreaking at times. I enjoyed this book so much I decided to pick up the box set this book is included in. 4.5 Stars to One to Hold by Tia Louise! I can't wait to read more...
