Book Review: One To Take by Tia Louise 1

one to take


By Tia Louise

(Stuart & Mariska)







A STAND-ALONE NOVEL in the “One to Hold” universe. Prepare for strong language, panty-melting sexy times, and heart-squeezing angst. Readers 18 and older only, please.


“A dream brought them together… A nightmare has the ability to tear them apart.” –Shayna Renee’s Spicy Reads


Stuart Knight is a wounded Marine turned Sexy Cowboy. Mariska Heron is the gypsy girl who stole his heart. Now they’re fighting for their Happily Ever After…


Life is never simple.

Even perfect couples face storms.

The question is whether our love is strong enough to survive.

I believe it is.


She told me to leave.

If I leave, I take her with me.

~Stuart Knight




My Rating:

4.5 hearts


Favorite Quotes:


“Just because things change doesn’t mean they’re spoiled.  It means you have to learn to change with it, together.”


“I know it doesn’t matter where I am.  He is my home.”


“I’ll take whatever comes as long as I have you.”


“Belief, faith, love.  It’s what makes a family a home.”


My Review:


My second Tia Louise read and happy to say I am still enthralled with her engrossing writing style and alpha cowboy characters.  Her sensual scenes are a hot mess of sizzling hawtness that had me gasping and blindly clutching for my wine goblet… since I could not tear my eyes away from my kindle for a second.  Ms. Louise certainly knows how to set a scene with vivid descriptions, lush details, and an underlying emotional intensity that ebbed and flowed yet never let up.  It was a sweet and sexy love story, until disaster struck.  The real tragedy was how they reacted to it rather than the event itself.  The story was intriguing, heartbreaking, enthralling, emotive, and deliciously steamy.  More please!
