The first book is told almost entirely from Melissa’s perspective but Derek gets his say as the set continues and I have to say that I enjoyed it more when I got to really hear from them both in equal measure.
Book One- One to Hold, Melissa is taking a break, sometime out of life, to try and gather her thoughts and work out what and where she goes from here. She didn’t expect to meet Derek while she was at the resort but no matter how hard she tries she can’t get him out of her head. The connection was instant but that is not to say it was for the best, Derek could be a catalyst that she hadn’t accounted for in more way than one!
Derek is just the sort of guy that Melissa really should give a wide berth but after all they are both carrying enough baggage to sink them both but could they help each other in the long run?
The story was strong, it was engaging and the characters were ones that you could not take your eyes of for one second. But as much as they were strong, the events that surrounded them were not what they appeared and you will have bitten your fingernails to the quick by the time you flip over the last page.
Book Two- One to Protect, this was all Derek for me, he had some tough choices to make in order to keep those he cared for safe but he was resolute in his decisions. Melissa’s past refuses to just lay down and go away but the prospect of losing her really brings Derek’s fortitude to the fore, he has his own demons but can he face them?
This was a more intense read for me and took me on a ride that was impossible to get off. This author certainly knows how to put her characters through the mill!Read more ›
Being able to create such imagery in your mind that you feel along with the characters as the story goes along, through the whole three books, says to me that Tia Louise is an excellent author! It is true to life writing, with Melissa being hurt that Derek is holding back on telling her everything that is going on, and him doing so because he just wants to protect her and keep the burden of any worries to himself. Reading it from dual point of view helps understand the reasoning to both characters thought processes.
A story filled with alpha HOT men protecting their women. Intense love for each other. Plots. Ploys. Action. Heartache. Insanely erotic but also tender moments. This boxset has it all. I thoroughly enjoyed following the story of Derek and Melissa!!
Told in first person narrative with alternating perspectives between Derek and Melissa, although the first book is Melissa's point of view for the most part. The couple meet at an exclusive resort they are staying at for the duration of a week. Both have a lot of secrets and baggage they are getting away from. Sparks literally fly with their first glance and quickly escalate to require a fire extinguisher ;)
As their background stories are disclosed the tension ramps up in terms of suspense within the narrative. While the first book concentrates on the relationship aspects between Melissa and Derek and to a degree their best friends, the other two books take on more of a romantic suspense feel with thriller elements. There is a great deal of internal angst displayed by the characters, while it does give insight into their situations I did find it a little annoying at times. There were a few incidents especially in the third book that I didn't particularly like, those concerning Star to be more specific, just made me doubt the characters and their relationships :(
While I did enjoy The One as a whole it was the character driven side of the story I preferred as opposed to the suspense/plot-driven aspects.
Melissa meets Derek at a hotel where she is on a spa break and he is attending a works conference or is he !!!
Melissa is trying to escape her troubled past will Derek find out the truth and will he break her heart in the process....
Derek is one hot Alpha male and its not long before sparks fly between them.
This book is a sexy suspense with a lot of romance and fun. I'm so pleased that Tia brought this out as a boxed set.
Looking forward to more from Tia Louise
