One to Keep (One to Hold #2) by Tia Louise ~ Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway!

 WARNING: Mature themes, strong language and sexual content. Recommended for adult readers (18+) only!

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 fiance 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.

Standalone, M/F, HEA

Release Day Excerpt: 

She didn’t push me away or tell me no as I kissed her again with more urgency this time. She turned, and I kissed her cheek. 

“I’m too weak when it comes to you,” she murmured as I traced the line of her jaw with my lips. “I should be stronger.” 

My kisses moved to her temple and into her hairline. She was so beautiful, and I had her again. “You’re incredibly strong,” I murmured. “You held me off for three weeks when everything in me wanted to come here and take you back.” 

I could feel her breathing pick up as I kissed her, and the tension below my waist grew tighter. My mouth returned to hers, and it opened quickly, tongues uniting, her fingers now threading in my hair. 

Her lips were so sweet, but I moved my kisses to her chin, dropping down to her neck, and unfastening the buttons on her shirt, kissing every spot of delicate skin that was revealed as it came apart… 


Let me just start by saying that I loved Patrick & Elaine's book as much as Derek & Melissa's. It was for personal reasons that I had to knock off a half star. Even though it's been a little while since I read OTH I spent the first half of this story not fully engaged in Patrick and Elaine because I couldn't stop thinking about Derek and Mel, I fell hard for them ya see!

Now that said, I eventually felt myself fall 'all in' and I just devoured this story. We get a little taste in book one of them being blissfully happy and then having some issues, but HOLY SMOKES is there a lot going on there. There is never a dull moment in this story!

It's safe to say before Elaine that Patrick is what we'd call A HOT MESS! But it's amazing what a good woman and her love can do. The chemistry between these two is electric. It is not an easy road for them but the pull is too much for either of them to deny and they both know they belong in each others arms.

I am not going to give anything away since this was an ARC graciously provided to me by Ms. Louise, all I will say is if you enjoyed OTH you will love One to Keep and if you haven't read either one, seriously...what are you waiting for??!

I will leave you with my favorite part. It made me swoon a bit!
"Everything that was wrong with me, all the pieces that were broken or that I tried to force into the wrong spots were fixed. Your smile, your touch....everything about you made me want to be a better person. You put me back together, Elaine, and not just that, you're beautiful and sexy...You're the only woman I wan. You're the only person who completes me. None of the other stuff matters. Nothing matters to me as much as you do." My voice was a cracked whisper. "Nothing." ~Patrick
