I really need to catch up on this series.
Derek is one hell of a sexy Alpha and I fell in love with him in the first
installment, One to Hold.One to
Save gives a glimpse into the continuing story of Melissa and Derek’s
passionate romance. Tia Louise did not disappoint in laying out a storyline
filled with steam, mysteries and angst.
I just go weak in the knees and all swoony
when a hero goes above and beyond the pale to protect his woman. Derek is my
kind of knight in shining armor. Sexy, domineering and possessive, nothing will
stop him when it comes to Melissa’s wellbeing. He would move heaven and hell to
assure no harm comes her way. Derek stands in the line of fire to eliminate all
threats at all costs…to the point of sacrificing himself for her and their
child. Guarding her from danger, Derek manages to wound her heart by keeping
secrets. Information that he holds near to shield Melissa has affected their
relationship. Not disclosing certain information creates a rift between this
couple, endangering a happy future together.
I can’t fault Melissa for being upset with
Derek’s intention to keep her in the dark regarding what lengthens he went
through to protect her. But sometimes given his business, certain actions are
necessary. Melissa has a tendency of taking things to an extreme and causing
excessive drama. She’s stubborn and unreasonable in creating more hurdles for
this pair to overcome, hurting Derek needlessly in my opinion. However Derek
remains strong. The intensity of his love for Melissa is heartwarming. He is
true and dedicated. That’s what I admire about his character aside from all his
sexiness - his overwhelming commitment to shield his lover and family,
especially given Melissa’s background.
I enjoyed catching up with this sexy couple.
Derek, as usual, was alluring and charming. One
to Save was a quick enticing read jam packed with hot sex, drama and
suspense. I can always count on Tia for a deliciously spicy tale.
