(Stuart & Mariska)
Some demons can't be shaken off.
Some wounds won't heal.
Until a pair of hazel eyes knocks you on your ass, and you realize it's time to stop running.

** 4 Star Review **
I haven't decided yet, but this might be my favorite yet... Maybe second favorite. I devoured this one in no time. I didn't want to put it down. I read it until my eyes literally closed and then picked it right back up the next day until I was done.
Tia has a way with her characters. You can always seem to be drawn in to them. She gives you an upfront seat to the show every single time.
I truly loved this book from start to finish. Stuart and Mariska's story ripped me apart. It was so sweet yet so torturous. All the way through the book I wanted to shake Stuart to wake him up, all the while, I felt for him. He was fighting so many demons and trying so hard to keep his distance from Mariska as to not rip her heart out.
Mariska is a sweet and sassy character. What is there not to love? She is the light in Stuart's darkness that he never wanted.
Overall, this is a wonderful story you shouldn't hesitate to read. It is the perfect combination of raw, sad and sweet that it is in the top of my favorites this year!
Tia Louise is the Amazon Bestselling author of the ONE TO HOLD series.
Her debut adult romance ONE TO HOLD was a 2014 "Lady Boner" award-winner, #1 in Military Romance, and a Top 20 Contemporary Romance novel for several months. ONE TO KEEP, #2 in the series of stand-alone novels, followed the same course, with the remaining performing equally well.
From being a "Readers' Choice" nominee two years running, to picking up USA Today "Happily Ever After" nods, 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 U.S.A. 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...
It's possible she has a slight truffle addiction.
