My Thoughts: 


My rating: 4 of 5 stars

One To Hold is wonderful, heartwarming and incredibly steamy debut novel, that made me swoon multiply times, caused my heart to skip more than few beats and gave me amazingly realistic, yet sweet romance. Everything girl can hope and dream for in contemporary romance is easily created feeling of transformation into Cinderella ready to find her prince. And this, dear ladies, Tia Louise pictured so effortlessly, that not only I was ready to go on ball, but I was already hearing wedding bells.

When she sees handsome man observing her in the bar, Melissa is shocked to learn he chosed her from the crowd of beautiful women.

Derek is ex-marine who is attending bankers’ convention. The sight of beautiful yet sad and lonely woman drinking at the bar, lures him to her. He can’t take his eyes of this enigmatic lady. After the share the hottest stare contest, Derek decides to try his chances with her.
The most extreme sexual chemistry in the universe pulls Derek and Melissa together like magnets. In matter of few minutes they share the most sensual and erotic experience of their lifes. Quickly a one night stand is transforming into one week stand. Week filled with passion, desire, lust and finally feelings that goes deeper than sexual attraction.

Now, Derek and Melissa are fighting with time, that is quickly up, and they have to say their farewells.

”We both have lives back home," he continued, "and maybe you can't share your life right now. But I'd take your call anytime."


One To Hold is Melissa and Derek’s story. Story of finding someone to hold on to and never let go. It’s beautiful, meaningful and extremely sexy. Tia Louise created amazing story, that hooked me and kept me guessing. I felt glued to the pages, and I immensely enjoyed every one of them.

I loved sexy times. Author easily captivated them as sensual and extremely erotic, yet still graphic and tasteful. I admired how Tia pictured change of feelings from only sex and attraction to friendship and love.

Characters were very likeable, and I couldn’t help but feel bad about Melissa’s situation. Derek is a man that falling in love with is really easy. Together they are awesome couple and I can’t picture them with anybody else. They are soul mates.

The sweetest HEA ever only made me like this book more. This novel was everything I hoped for and I can’t wait to read other books by Tia Louise.
