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 fiancée 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.

A STAND-ALONE, ONE TO HOLD NOVEL. Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18. (M/F, male POV)

my thoughts

Tia Louise gives us another intensely sexy romance that will warm you inside and out. One To Keep is a story of a man who gave up on love, only to find it again unexpectedly. Patrick Knight knows betrayal. He knows what it feels like to have your heart ripped out of your chest, to have your emotions torn apart, and to feel like nothing matters anymore. When he came to work for Derek Alexander he wanted to leave it all behind, to no longer feel like his insides were tearing apart. Patrick needed to stay busy, needed distractions of every kind possible. When his boss sends him away to get his head on straight, he finds the one thing he thought he lost…hope.

WOW, talk about chemistry! Patrick and Elaine’s connection was explosive, sexy, and all-consuming! It wasn’t all physical either, which made their story so beautiful. After spending so little time together, when they had to part, they felt the pain of the loss instantly. Elaine didn’t think a long distance relationship could work, even though it was breaking her heart to leave Patrick. Patrick wouldn’t give up on Elaine. He knew that she was his other half, and he would give her time. They belonged together.

Bee stings…needles…rope burns…

When you get the significance of those words, your heart will break and Patrick will be forever embedded into your heart.

One To Keep was an emotional roller coaster for me and these characters had me wrapped around their fingers from the very beginning. Beautiful, gut-wrenching, and erotic, One To Keep was a great addition to Ms. Louise’s One To Hold series. This is a standalone novel in the series, but believe me once you get a taste of Derek Alexander in this one, you will want to read the rest of his story in One To Hold.
