4 twinkling stars

I liked the way this book moved really quickly, which surprises me. Generally I don't end up finishing books that involve meeting, sex, leaving, meeting and more sex!
However this one captured me, Derek comes across as super decent and so does Mel. And there is a back story included, so in the end it isn't just sex.

I will read the next book

Fantastic read! I couldn't put it down. And finally ... finally ... an author finishes a book and doesn't leave it open for a series. Loved it!

Review: One To Hold #1: One To Hold

One to Hold by Tia Louise is the first book in her One To Hold series. And it is HAWT!

Melissa has had a crap year and is on a week long get away in the desert with her lifelong best friend Elaine. What she doesn't expect to happen is the sexy god-like hook up that completely blows her mind. Is he gonna make a repeat appearance? Does she want him to?

Derek just met the most beautiful but sad woman he's ever seen. Something about Melissa speaks to some part of him that was broken till now. What started as a one night stand, a really sexy one night stand, NEEDS to become more. Every cell in his body insists on it.

There's a passion between these two people that will draw you deep into their stories. Melissa has to decide if her past will limit her future but she first needs to decide if she can ever get past Derek's shocking secret! I absolutely loved this book!
