Daphnie's 5 Star Review


This was one HOT & STEAMY story, at one point I thought my ereader was going to catch on fire.
Melissa is on a one week spa retreat to get away from the secrets she has going on at home. She is enjoy a week of relaxation with her Best Friends Elaina to take her mind of things. While in the bar and trying to drawn in her sorrows she meets Derek.
Derek is on a business conference and spots Melissa from across the bar. Derek is sexy and mysteries and not the type of person Melissa is usually attracted to. This doesn't stop her from escaping reality and enjoy her week long spa trip and adding Derek into her trip.
Both Melissa and Derek are hiding secrets from their past that neither of them can express. When their week is up and Melissa has to go back to realty will they path cross?  Can Melissa tell Derek her Secret? Will Derek be able to help and accept Melissa secret?
This was a quick read, but no disappointment here. I loved all the characters in this book, Elaina was there for Melissa when she needed her to be. This book had a great amount of suspense with the right amount of Steam. This was a great debut from novel Tia Louise

Daphnie's 5 s Star Smokin  HOT, Panty Dropping Review

 I was so excited to get my hand on the next installment of this series.  
I get to read more about this smoking HOT couple. More Derek Alexander *sigh* and Melissa.
  After everything that Derek and Melissa have went through they now have each other. Nothing will stop Derek from protecting Melissa. This is why I love Derek so much he comes off as a hard ass but his sweet, loyal, protective, Smokin HOT, and would do anything for Melissa. All he wants is Melissa to feel safe but I think he just need to feel at ease. The only way to do this is to deal with Sloan.
 Enters Sloan the ass of an ex-husband, who got off of jail time because he is loaded. 
 At the end of One To Hold you were left wanting to know what happen to Melissa and her ex-husbands Sloan. One To Protect gives you that with a whole bunch of sexy.
 After reading One To Hold I wanted more of this couple, sigh and Tia Louise delivered.   
Melissa is finally in a place were she can be happy. Love and happiness will do that to you, and that is what this two have. I loved the chemistry between Derek and Melissa, they had it in One To  Hold and Tia didn't disappoint in One To Protect. The sexy time in this book was unbelievable. Derek was a beast and if I had any type of magic power I would magically slide myself inside of this book.
 Even though everything is falling into place for the two of them. Things will never be ok for Derek until Sloan pay for what he did. In comes Toni and for those who read One To Keep, you know how good Toni is at her job. I don't want to give anything away you just have to read and find out what's happen between this group of people. 
Although everything is told in the POV's of Melissa and Derek we still get Patrick and Elaine. Derek and Patrick have formed a bond between the two of them. We get to see how that bro-mance  has grown between the two of them. Derek can put his trust in knowing Mellissa is protected when he is not there and it was good to see that they has squished their differences. I also just love Patrick and I have a big book crush on him. My heart will always belong to Patrick but after this book I am torn between my two love. Patrick, Derek, Patrick, Derek, I think I might need a piece of both of them .  
Tia Louise is Brilliant at what she does. The flow of this book was like a movie real, each scene flowed into the next effortlessly. You have your drama, suspense and then you have a scene that will has your pulse racing and your eyes dilating.  
One To Protect was just that perfect dose you need to get you by until you can get your next installment in this series. If you haven't started this series yet, go grab your copy of One To Hold and get started.

Tia Louise is a former journalist, world-traveler, and collector of beautiful men (who inspire all of her stories... wink)—turned wife, mommy, and novelist.
She lives in the center of the U.S.A. with her lovely family and one grumpy cat. There, she dreams up stories she hopes are engaging, hot, and sexy, and that cause readers rethink common public locations…
It’s possible she has a slight truffle addiction.
