One to Protect by Tia Louise - Blog Tour, Book Review, Giveaway

Title: One to Protect (One to Hold #3)
Author: Tia Louise
Release Date: April 21, 2014
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Tour Host: The Book Nuts Author Promotions

One scar.
One betrayal.
No escape.

When Sloan Reynolds beats criminal charges, Melissa Jones stops believing her wealthy, connected ex-husband will ever pay for what he did to her.

Derek Alexander can’t accept that—a tiny silver scar won't let him forget, and as a leader in the security business, he is determined to get the man who hurt his fiancée.

Then the body of a former call girl turns up dead. She’s the breakthrough Derek’s been waiting for, the link to Sloan’s sordid past he needs. But as usual, legal paths to justice have been covered up or erased.

Derek’s ready to do whatever it takes to protect his family when his partner Patrick Knight devises a plan that changes everything.

It’s a plan that involves coloring outside the lines and taking a walk on the dark side. It goes against everything on which Alexander-Knight, LLC, is based.

And it’s a plan Derek’s more than ready to follow.

Readers are saying…

"If you're looking for a fun, intriguing, and HOT story...this is it!! 5 STARS!" --Aleatha Romig, NYT and USA Today bestselling author of the Consequences series

“Derek is hot! Patrick is equally hot! Put these two hot men together and what do you get?!? Panty Dropping holy mother of god hotness! The gang is back and I couldn't be happier!” —Karrie, Panty-Dropping Book Blog

“Each scene flowed into the next effortlessly… drama, suspense and then a scene that will have your pulse racing and your eyes dilating.”—Daphnie, Bound by Books blog

“5 of 5 breathtaking stars.” –Lisa, Goodreads reviewer

“The sex scenes are hot, and the story is great! The love Derek has for Melissa just pulls you in and you know he would do anything in his power to make sure she is safe, which makes him a new addition to my book boyfriend list!” —Chrissy, Reading Past My Bedtime blog

"I realized love isn’t something you can give away or shut off when it doesn’t work out. When love is taken away, it creates a vacuum that has to be filled with new love."

It’s Derek and Melissa once again. I fell in love with these two when I first read ONE TO HOLD. And now they’re back – much stronger, much sweeter and their future uncertain when Sloan Reynolds beats criminal charges and a freeman.

Their love and passion for each other hasn’t tamed. They may be an 8-hour drive apart, but the absence just makes the heart grow fonder, and the sex a little bit hotter.

The scar on her face is a constant reminder that once Sloan Reynolds had put her life in danger, and she will always be in danger as long as he is out of jail, and alive. So he uses all his resources to get the man who is set out to get his fiancée.

When a body of one of his former ‘regulars’ turned up dead – it was all Derek has been waiting for to finally put his plans into actions. But Sloan was sleek, he can just get away with anything using his money and connections. Derek was willing to do anything to protect his family, at whatever extent, but Patrick Knight strategized a plan that will surely bring Sloan to his knees. It may involve something illegal – something that their agency was not in favor of. But, what choice do they have, when everything Derek loved and lived for is at risk? His love for Melissa is unquestionable. He would do anything for her and the baby.

It’s good to see Patrick and Elaine, and just like the two, their love was also growing, but there might be some issues needing to be addressed ASAP.

The suspense was killing me – I held my breath for so long, waiting for what is going to happen, what are they going to do, and the consequences of their actions. The scenes were intense, and I’m not just talking about their sleuthing.

I loved every page of it – the rush of suspense, the steamy scenes, and the familiarity of old characters. It got me hooked from the first page down to the last, and I couldn’t wait for the next book in the series! 

"Anything with the power to take you away from me scares me."

Nikki continued talking, but I wasn’t listening. Cold realization flashed in my brain like lightening striking a tree.
Jessica Black. It was the name on the email Melissa had put in front of me that day she visited our offices. The day she dropped a nuke on all my dreams of a life with her, when she revealed my former “mentor,” her ex-husband Sloan Reynolds’s secret double-life. He had high-end escorts all over the country, and Jessica Black was his first careless slip. Melissa had found it.
Nikki was still reminiscing as I spun around in my chair, shaking my computer awake. Fingers flying over the keys, I pulled up all the information I could find on the dead girl.
She’d been living in Baltimore for a year. I wondered if she followed him from wherever they’d hooked up the first time. Why would she do that? Was it possible she was in love with him? Was it for the money? Had he promised her anything?
It didn’t matter. She’d disappeared off the police blotter from the time she arrived there until now, when she’d turned up dead.
Reasons scrolled across my brain of all the possible causes of death, but looking at her beaten face, all I could see was the photo Melissa had put in front of me all those months ago.
My instincts were on high alert. Sloan was getting antsy, and I knew what he wanted. Jessica Black might look like the real thing, but she wasn’t it.
Substitutes would never fill the possession he felt. I’d followed enough of these twisted fucks to know. He was coming for Melissa, and it was just a matter of when.
