LOTS of sexual content. Patrick is a naughty boy until he meets Elaine. So there's the warning--if you keep reading, have fun! (It's meant to be fun. *wink*)

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 fiance 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.

WARNING: Recommended for adult readers (18+) only! Mature themes, strong language, and sexual content...

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.

After his fiancé cheats on him, Patrick decides it’s better to be “that” guy – you know, the one-night-stand-screw-‘em-and-leave-‘em-guy – than the nice sweet one he really is.  Nice and sweet haven’t gotten him very far.  But, being “that” guy got his butt shipped off to Arizona by his business partner to cover a boring conference.  The desert is what you get when you dip the pen in the company ink! But, serving penance isn’t all that bad especially when Patrick meets Elaine……

Patrick, Patrick, Patrick….. What can I say???  You started off an ass, but captured my heart by the end.  I knew you weren’t “that” guy…….. you just didn’t have it in you.  But, you sure managed to step in a big pile of crap I sure as heck didn’t see coming.  I had no clue how you planned to scrape that one off your shoe.  So once again, Tia managed to take how I thought it would play out and toss it right out the window.

One To Keep fills in the holes of the times we didn’t see Patrick and Elaine in One To Hold. Now, we know what they were doing ;).  It’s a fun, quick, and sexy light read.  It’s a book I picture reading while on the beach in my lounge chair sipping a fruity umbrella drink.

I enjoyed One To Keep, but Patrick and Elaine didn’t have the same effect on me as Melissa and Derek did.  I still love Tia’s style, and she can write one heck of a sex scene.  Her ability to capture the male POV and create a sensitive hero is great.

If you want to know what Elaine and Patrick were doing while Melissa and Derek were holed up in Arizona definitely pick up One To Keep!  Elaine is definitely one to keep, but Patrick needs to convince Elaine that he is, too.

Derek Alexander is a retired Marine, ex-cop, and the top investigator in his field. Melissa Jones is a small-town girl trying to escape her troubled past.

When the two intersect in a bar in Arizona, their sexual chemistry is off the charts. But what is revealed during their "one week stand" only complicates matters.

Because she'll do everything in her power to get away from the past, but he'll do everything he can to hold her.
