Some wounds won't heal.

Until a pair of hazel eyes knocks you on your ass, and you realize it's time to stop running.

my thoughts

The BEST One To Hold novel to date! Stuart not only broke my heart, but carefully mended it back together. This Marine turned Cowboy is battling more than one addiction. And one of them holds the power to break his heart and damage his soul.

Tia Louise knows just what buttons to push when it comes to this series. I came in late in the game in her One To Hold series, but I am finally caught up, and I gotta say, she raises the bar with each new addition. I’ve been craving Stuart’s story for as long as I can remember, and to finally have my hands on it is bitter-sweet. This sexy, stubborn, protective cowboy made me swoon with every word that came out of his mouth. He is a broken man, and you just want to reach inside the book and console him, heal him, protect his heart. Mariska is the missing piece to his damaged soul. She is PERFECT for him, so PERFECT, that I was cheering her on every step of the way. The fact that these two met each other at a glance, but the connection was instant, so visceral, so demanding that they couldn’t get each other out of their heads, was such a beautiful thing.

Stuart conquered one addiction, just to be drawn into another. Mariska was an addiction he didn’t want to beat, an addiction he wanted to bow down to, an addiction that he would gladly let kill him, if it meant he got just one taste. It’s so intense, surreal, and it still gives me the goosebumps every time I think of their chemistry. Spanking, pulling hair, sexy growls, and hearty demands, just gives you a little taste as to what this sexy man is capable of.

A man looking for redemption finds the one thing that makes him feel alive again, makes his heart beat again, lets him imagine a life without demons, darkness, and regret. Mariska is his light, and he will bask in it as long as she lets him.

ONE TO LEAVE can be read as a standalone, but boy are you missing out if you don’t instantly pick up the rest of this series! You will not regret it!
