Product Description


"Great writing, steamy romance, humor, and a lot of heart." --Mia Sheridan, "New York Times" and "USA Today" bestselling author
"FIVE STARS: Spanking, pulling hair, sexy growls, and hearty demands, just gives you a little taste as to what this sexy man is capable of." -Shayna Renee's Spicy Reads

About the Author

Tia Louise is the Amazon Bestselling author of the ONE TO HOLD series. Her debut adult romance ONE TO HOLD was a 2014 "Lady Boner" award-winner, #1 in Military Romance, and a Top 20 Contemporary Romance novel for several months. ONE TO KEEP, #2 in the series of stand-alone novels, followed the same course, with the remaining performing equally well. From being a "Readers' Choice" nominee two years running, to picking up USA Today "Happily Ever After" nods, nothing makes her happier than communicating with fans and weaving new tales into the Alexander-Knight world of stories. A former journalist, Louise lives in the center of the U.S.A. with her lovely family and one grumpy cat. There, she dreams up stories she hopes are engaging, hot, and sexy, and that cause readers rethink common public locations... It's possible she has a slight truffle addiction.

One to Leave (One to Hold, #5)

Wendy Hodges's review

it was amazing

Read on January 28, 2016

although this is the first one in the series that I have read (there are more before this) I really enjoyed it. obviously injured in the war while serving abroad, Stuart has his demons. Dealing with the pain from the injury he is still fighting to get over using pain meds and booze to get fit enough to go back. He wanted to be a lifer and has no thoughts on doing anything else, let alone having a relationship or staying in his temp career as a security guard for those with money that need protection. Mariska is loving, special and dreams, she has a very strong connection to Stuart but can she help him. It is nice to read a book from this perspective, the struggle with pain and coping with getting off meds which have caused a dependency. Often in books these alpha males are strong and pain, recovery etc don't seem to even enter into the story. Whereas in true life its this side of things ,no matter how big or strong you are, that actually cause the problems. well done to Tia Louise for actually writing about this aspect, the healing, the crippling agony of dealing with this and also discovering other ways of finding relief. A great story of courage, love, strength and faith. the sex and the romance are all an added bonus

This has been a fabulous series and book 5 (One to Hold) is no exception, Stuart and Mariska's story was powerful but beautifully written.
Once you start reading you just don't want to put it down, I love how Tia portrays her characters everything always comes across very real.
Mariska was meant to be with Stuart from the moment they had that little encounter towards the end of the last book, the seed was set but when Nikki appeared on the scene at the Airport and later at Bills it through me a bit, I thought where's this going..
There was only one person for Stuart and after all the pain, dreams and emotional turmoil he realised and did the right thing.. Fantastic..!!
I am so looking forward to the next book, what is Derrick hiding.?

Copy provided by the author in return for an honest review.

It's book 5 and this series continues to go from strength to strength. After loving Kenny and Slayde's story so much I was worried that Stuart and Mariska's story may pale into insignificance but I needn't have worried, Stuart was ready to lift my expectations!

I swear Tia's writing gets hotter and hotter and some of the scenes *phew* were extremely spicy. I was on the fence about calling Tia an erotic romance writer before, choosing instead to think of her books as more adult romance, but One To Leave definitely takes the eroticism of her writing to another level.

So, Stuart and Mariska, well there's a partnership we were always destined to enjoy. From the teaser in One To Love, we were left questioning who this broken man is and who can possibly save him. Enter Mariska. From the brief moment they shared at the gym, Stuart and Mariska can't stop thinking about each other but their lives are heading in different directions.

Stuart is still coming to terms with his recovery and the implications of his treatment and heads to his uncle's to try to recover but Derek and Patrick are suspicious and head out after him. Derek finds Stuart in need of his support and spending the week together they try to piece Stuart's life back together again.

Mariska can 't stop thinking about Stuart and when her dreams start to become mysterious she does what she thinks has to be done and she heads in Stuart's direction.

Stuart and Mariska are immediately attracted to one another once again but they question the power in their feelings for one another.

4 - "All of this... it's a lot to take in." Stars!

I love this series, and I love Tia Louise's writing of it. Each and every character brings a little something to the mix that the others do not have and as a whole, you have a wonderfully entertaining and eclectic mix of people, all of which you fall a little in love with as their stories are told, and the series as a whole progresses.

"So much has happened, and not enough."

It is pretty safe to say I will never get bored of reading each of the episodes in the lives of Derek, Patrick, Melissa, Elaine, as well as Kenny and Slayde and now Stuart and Mariska that Tia has given her readers, and One to Leave is no exception. Although not my favorite book, I still really enjoyed it.

"When I go, I go alone."

Main reason being for me is that, I have waited an awfully long time to meet and get to know the elusive Stuart Knight, and although this is his and Mariska's story an awful lot of other stories are also being played out around theirs in this book. Not a bad thing and it offers great development to the series as a whole. But I still don't feel I know Stuart as well as I want too, and the lesser focus on him in this book for the group as a whole I think bears a little responsibility for that. Although Knowing the imagination of Ms. Louise, I am hoping against hope that this is because there will be another book involving this couple more 'intimately' in the future!

As I said, I still love this series. Tia nailed the banter between Derek, Patrick and Stuart, and it was great to see a little more of the dynamic between the Knight brothers as well as the group as a whole with the inclusion of Kenny, Slayde and Mariska.

"I want to know you better.
