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.

She didn’t push me away or tell me no as I kissed her again with more urgency this time. She turned, and I kissed her cheek.


“I’m too weak when it comes to you,” she murmured as I traced the line of her jaw with my lips. “I should be stronger.”


My kisses moved to her temple and into her hairline. She was so beautiful, and I had her again. “You’re incredibly strong,” I murmured. “You held me off for three weeks when everything in me wanted to come here and take you back.”


I could feel her breathing pick up as I kissed her, and the tension below my waist grew tighter. My mouth returned to hers, and it opened quickly, tongues uniting, her fingers now threading in my hair.


Her lips were so sweet, but I moved my kisses to her chin, dropping down to her neck, and unfastening the buttons on her shirt, kissing every spot of delicate skin that was revealed as it came apart…

One to Keep is a story told from Patrick’s POV. I always like to read a book told from a male’s viewpoint because it is neat to see how we (women) try to figure out how men think. Tia Louise does an excellent job of this! After suffering heartbreak, Patrick decides he no longer wants to be a “nice” guy. He meets Elaine and well, you can guess what happens!! If you are looking for a book that has some intrigue, some emotional depth, steamy sex, and a HEA then this book is for you!!!

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of One to Keep in exchange for an honest review.
