(Derek & Melissa)
Some threats come at you as friendly fire.
Some threats take away everything.
Family won’t let you go down without a fight.
The Secret isn’t as secure as Derek’s team originally thought it was, and a person on the inside of Alexander-Knight is set on exposing him, breaking him, and taking away all he holds dear.
Refusing to let anyone suffer for his crimes, Derek takes matters into his own hands. He’s exposed, he’s defenseless, but his friends are determined to save him.

Of all of the book boyfriends out there, you know that one that just shines head and shoulders above all of the rest for you? The one that is just the embodiment of the perfect man…yeah, for me that is Derek Alexander!! So to say I get a little excited when my amazing girl Miss Tia writes
us a new story about him is a GROSS UNDERSTATEMENT!! In case I wasn’t clear I
LOVE DEREK ALEXANDER, in all his big, dark, dangerously sexy glory!
Ok, enough of my slobbering over Derek because truth be told if any other woman besides me should get to have him I am so happy it’s Melissa! I adore Mel almost as much as Derek and they are the hottest, most adorable couple. Now without giving anything away, you know, because I was lucky enough to get to read this before it is released, I will tell you my favorite couple has to navigate some pretty significant hurdles in this installment of their story. Yes, my perfect Derek fucks up quite royally, a couple times actually, but after some suffering on both their parts, we can breathe a sigh of relief, it will all work out, I promise :). We also get to meet a couple new characters and I can’t wait for their story. As well as spend some time with all of our old friends from the previous stories.
I will admit I spent some time in tears, which I seem to do in every one of Miss Tia’s books! But have no fear, I assure you a HEA . Which is what I kept telling myself as I was ugly crying a bit lying in bed last night as I devoured this book.
I lost myself in the darkness of trying to protect you, but you're my light. In the worst time of my life, your true colors shined through, and you demonstrated how deep your love is. You saved me. ~Derek
If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of this series, and you are a lover of romance then I urge you to get them!! READ THESE BOOKS!!! I assure you, you won’t be disappointed. I was given One to Hold (book 1) by this wonderful author quite some time ago for review and I fell madly in love! With the characters, the story and the author!
We've each made it through the dark times, and we've found one to hold, keep, love and save. The future is wide open, and our love is strong. I can't wait to see what's next for all of us. ~Mel
