There is predictability in the quality of Tia Louise's work, but not in her stories.
In One To Leave, the previously touched upon characters of Mariska and Stuart are brought to life.
Stuart, thus far a vague shadow figure, poorly understood, comes forward as an intriguingly complex and rather dark but delicious man, whose straight-lined and straight-laced life has taken a step onto a slippery and damaging side road. Reluctantly facing some of the fall out of his poor decisions, he comes face to face with a woman who instantly embeds herself on his soul.
Mariska is a contradiction. She comes across full of star-eyed innocence and perhaps even naivité yet at the same time displays an ancient wisdom that seems in conflict. She is irreverent and open, intuitive and loving, and relies heavily on her heart to guide her way. The instant she meets Stuart, she instinctively knows her path.
This story is not without its pitfalls, there are steep arcs of character evolution, in particular Stuart's, that make for a compelling read.
Theirs is a clear example of insta-love but written beautifully with a touch of magic. As a couple, these two are wonderfully contrasted, making their chemistry all the more believable.
My only note (and half-star) is for the large number of POV's this book is rich. It gives a 360 degree view of the story, but feels at times a little crowded with the many differing angles.
I highly recommend this sometimes dark, occasionally magical, but always rich and delicious novel.
“I saw you and my soul came to life inside me. All the reasons no one was ever good enough made sense. They weren’t you.”
As much as I have loved all of the books and couples so far in this series, Mariska and Stuart might be my favorite. The chemistry between these two is explosive. I can’t wait to keep reading this series. Simply amazing! This author can tell a story that keeps me wrapped up from beginning to end.
Stuart Knight is a haunted, wounded man, a ex Marine, who faces struggles and pain on a daily basis.
Tired of it all, he decides to kick his habit, and venture to a remote cabin in Montana on his family's land.
Mariska is a beautiful women, with a gypsy soul, she loves easy and looks for the good in everyone. And when she set eyes on the older Knight brother that day, months ago, she knew they were meant to cross paths.
Plagued with haunting dreams, Mariska sets for Montana to help the wounded solider, who captured her heart with one look.
Once there Mariska, feels foolish and scared that Stuart will think of her as a nutcase. Following him all this way.
Stuart begins his healing, its extremely hard, but he has his mind set. Get better and get back to the desert that his Marine heart calls for.
But when free spirit, Mariska, throws a wrench in that plan, Stuart's heart starts to call for more than that desert.
A beautiful story, of two people who are fated to be together.
Mariska will have to prove to Stuart that her love, and heart are in the right place, and Stuart will have to rid the monsters from his mind and learn to let the love of this special women heal him.
Stuart & Mariska have beat out all the others in this series as my favorite couple.
Fate works in mysterious way. And in this story, it brought a damaged man back from the edge, and into the arms of a beautiful soul.
Utterly mind blowing, One to Leave is the latest release from Tia Louise-It is steamy, electrifying, and heart wrenching. One to Leave is written in several points of view giving the reader deeper sights in each of the characters which we love.
Stuart is a broken man who is as edgy as he is gorgeous with a deep yearning and determination to get back to his life mission of protecting his country. Stuart spends time at his uncles trying to fight an internal battle when unwelcome family and friends show up to help him overcome his demons. Determined to get back to his dream, Stuart starts to question if his dreams can be altered and still find the peace and honor he craves. Stuart has to decide if he is willing to forsake his friends, family, and even love in his life ambition.
Mariska is a young, stunning, mystic, old soul who takes a chance on love. One quick meeting with a stranger give the beautiful woman the courage follow her dreams to a place where her heart leads her. She constructs a web of deceit in order to reach a tortured soul who haunts not only her dreams but her mind.
As love began to blossom, the lies are revealed causing Mariska to finally open her heart exposing the real reason why she followed the stranger. Determined to break through, she is determined to save the tortured and broken soul that enters her dreams at night. Will the truth being revealed cause the man to run or will she be able to convince him that her intentions were not to hurt but help him.
Tia gives us another book full of emotions, heartache and steamy moments that the One to Hold series continues to deliver. One to Leave is not different. I Love this book, series and Tia Louise. She is a very talented writer, who not only give her readers alpha men, but alpha men which varied personalities. I cannot wait for the next book in the series, One to Save
