This installment gives further insight into how Melissa and Derek try to find their pace in their common life and how they try to establish a certain routine. Within all these transitions Sloan Reynolds re-appears and finds his devious way into their lives. The book doesn't end exactly with a cliffhanger but it will be interesting to see how the couple intends to face the consequences of Derek's impulsive action (in the next installment "One to Save").
I liked how the plot dealt with the controversial issue of Derek's spontaneous and uninhibited way of "problem solving". On a logical basis I don't want to accept Derek's action. However, the emotional struggle leading to this action were, to a certain degree, comprehensible. In any case, I appreciated how the author tried to put this inexcusable action into perspective by showing how Derek himself had difficulties to "digest" what he did.
This installment alternated between Derek's and Melissa's narration of the events, leading to a more balanced result than in "One to Hold". Again, there were again numerous hot and steamy sex scenes but the suspense part was more dominant in this installment, which kept me well entertained.
A very worthy continuation! I loved it and have already downloaded "One to Save".
Melissa & Derek draw you into there world again. One Physco Ex, a Pregnancy, lots of sex, and a loving man looking to squash the nightmares from his fiancée past.
Like the other two books in the series. You ll be griping the edges of your seat. Wondering what possibly could come next.
The high tension suspense. Sweet moments between Derek & Melissa. And the quirky antics of Patrick & Elaine. One To Protect Makes for a great, quick, read.
It leaves you with unanswered questions. And the unknown of there futures. But i can't wait to see where Tia Louise takes this story. Every time i read about Melissa & Derek i fall for there story a little bit more.
Tia Louise has done it again! Seamlessly weaving tender-hearted romance and heart stopping danger, she leads readers on an enthralling journey of love, passion and intrigue. I was even more invested in this couple this time around because I had the privilege of watching them fall head over heels in love in One to Hold. Once again, I really relished the hot sensually and soul-deep connection between these characters, and Derek is a delicious hero! So strong and tender with a fierce protective streak that left me breathless.
Ms. Louise also skillfully incorporated other key series players in Derek's risky plot to bring down his greatest enemy, and there's a jaw dropping plot twist that proves to be a total game changer. But, ultimately, it made me worship Derek that much more. Swoon alert: There is NOTHING this man won't do to safeguard his family.
My only personal qualm is that I wish there were less alternate povs of secondary characters and more scenes of the hero and heroine interacting because their romantic chemistry is red-hot and I selfishly want more ...more...more! But fans seem to respond positively overall to this unique storytelling format, and I do respect this author's clever editorial choices.
Ultimately, Tia Louise is a gorgeous storyteller with a true gift for captivating fans with her tantalizing couples, suspenseful plot twists and searing emotional depth. This book is not to be missed and I look forward to the "conclusion" of Mel and Derek's love story in One To Save!
