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.
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.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Stuart and Mariska. I love that the author decided to give us readers a glimpse into their ever after. Now engaged, Stuart and Mariska are now looking forward to the rest of their lives. Stuart wants nothing more than to make a home with Mariska, but he faces some choices when it comes to his uncle’s ranch. His home is with Mariska and he knows it. But what if home is also at the ranch? Can he live his dream while making Mariska happy? We witness his internal struggle as he tries to balance both. When an unfortunate event occurs, Stuart is left in despair and full of guilt. He spirals down and old habits come to the surface. Can Stuart and Mariska survive this?
I don’t want to give too much away, but my heart hurt so much for these two. The situation they are left to deal with is such a sensitive, relevant, and important issue. I think the author gracefully deals with everything that Stuart and Mariska go through. It was dealt with in such a realistic manner. Whether you have been in their situation or not, you WILL feel for them. Understand their pain and grief. Why they react the way they did. But one thing that never faltered was their love. Their love remained constant.
Unwavering. Stuart and Mariska truly demonstrate such growth in their relationship and as individuals. No matter what happens, they always believe in their love.
I found myself lost in this story from beginning to the end. Oh Stuart, my sexy cowboy how I've missed you so! Stuart is his usual alpha self, always ready to protect his love, Mariska. He loves so deeply. Fiercely. It felt in not only his words, but how he looks at her as if she is his whole life.
One To Take adds another amazing layer to this series. I am once again reminded on why each couple is such a vital part to this entire series. And these two are no different. Stuart and Mariska found each other through darkness and despair. And once again, darkness threatens them. But their love? Even in the face of tragedy, their love shines. No matter what shakes them to their core, their love is always felt. Their love is powerful. Their love overcomes. Their story isn’t an easy one, but it’s theirs. While this can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend the entire series as it remains as one of my favorites. The author is a brilliant storyteller in that with each addition to the series, the characters easily embed themselves into your heart. It’s like a family that you never want to part with.
Tia Louise is the Amazon and International Bestselling author of the ONE TO HOLD series.
From “Readers’ Choice” nominations, to picking up USA Today “Happily Ever After” nods, to winning a 2014 “Lady Boner Award” (LOL!), nothing makes her happier than communicating with fans and weaving new tales into the Alexander-Knight world of stories.
A former journalist, Louise lives in the center of the USA 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...
