Derek Alexander is an ex-Marine, ex-cop, and the top investigator in his field. Melissa Jones is a small-town girl trying to escape her troubled past.When the two intersect in a bar in Arizona, their sexual chemistry is off the charts. But when it is revealed during their “one week stand” only complicates matters.

Because she’ll do anything in her power to get away from her past, but he’ll do everything he can to hold her.

This is the debut book for Tia Louise and I was thoroughly impressed with her writing skills. She has a way of grabbing the reader and pulling them in, almost from the first few lines.

I was in love with Derek from the beginning; who wouldn’t love a HOT, sexy alpha-male. Not to mention he is an ex-Marines and an ex-cop… two of my favorite things!

This book follows Melissa and her best friend as they escape to a spa-getaway for a week. Melissa meets Derek and things heat up quickly. This book not only has romance, steamy love scenes, but there was a suspenseful aspect to the story that I was not expecting; as everything in Melissa’s life is not as it seems.

I loved the fact that this book was a stand-alone and was a short, quick read.

Tia Louise is a former journalist, world-traveler, and collector of beautiful men (who inspire ALL of her stories… *wink*)— turned wife, mommy, and novelist.

It’s possible she has a slight truffle addiction. And she will never look at a family restroom the same way again.
