One to Hold is Tia Louise’s adult romance debut novel. I will start with saying that is has a fabulous cover that alone catches my attention. I was pleasantly surprised that the content was equally as good and that it lived up to its “mature content” warning!

This book contains the story of two strangers in a new place with somewhat sad pasts. Alone in a bar, Melissa catches to stare of a very attractive and powerful looking Derek. One drink, one night, and promise of pure bliss without the baggage. The desert heat of Arizona has nothing on the heat that Derek and Melissa create on an isolated balcony. When all is said and done, both are left with the unforgettable memory of their passion. They are consumed by the smell, the touch and the intensity of their union, thus putting them on a path for more encounters.
