Do love at first sight exist? If you met a stranger in passing and felt an instant magnetic pull to him, would you be willing to drop everything and stand in his doorstep? They say love can make you do crazy things so how far would you go? And in Tia Louise’s 5th installment, One to Leave, readers were immersed in one magical and unforgettable romance of Stuart Knight and Mariska Heron. After I read One to Leave, I was already in loved with this couple. They made hearts burst with the love that they had for each other. And so when I heard that Tia Louise was writing another book of Stuart and Mariska, I was over the moon happy. And how could I not be, this sexy cowboy ex-marine and sweet loving gypsy can easily steal the hearts of readers. And in Taken (Dirty Cowboy): A One to Take Primer , readers are reminded again of the spark and first meeting of Stuart and Mariska and are given a brief glimpse of vital scenes in their relationship. While this book, may have a few scenes from One to Leave, Taken was just a sample taste of what is yet to come with this couple. And I seriously can't wait for One To Take as my favorite sexy cowboy is back and ready to rope in the girl of his dreams and possible his new future.

Here is a little glimpse of the love between Stuart Knight and then free spirited Mariska! Fans of the One to Hold series are familiar with the broody, sexy military cowboy and how a small open loving lady took him down with her pure love!

One to Take is coming soon but before diving into what lies ahead, Tia Louise gives her readers the most important moments from first glance to final chase as Stuart and Mariska fell in fast love.

Taken contains passionate scenes that are full of fire and emotion, binding these two together forever. It is hard to imagine what will lie ahead for them as it seems as if they are solid! These moments read solidified the love between Stuart and Mariska and had me desperately wanting more....yet anxiously waiting for what lies ahead!

Taken is another steamy/sexy addition to one of my top favorite series! If you've read One To Leave, the story of Stuart and Mariska, then this is a great primer and memory booster before we get more of their story in One To Take (which I CAN NOT wait for) and if you haven't read the previous book then you will most definitely want to after reading Taken, because how could you not want more sexy/dirty cowboy! I loved revisiting these characters and will be counting down the days to the release of One To Take...I NEED more Dirty Cowboy Stuart!!!

This was a great little read but because it was a primer and I haven't read the other book I find that I am missing a ton of information.
I am planning on reading the previous complete story but I needed some back ground before I started One To Take.
If you are planning on reading One To Take and need a refresher or the bgd story then this is great.

Taken is the Primer to One to Take, the 8th book in the One to Hold series. This primer is to give the reader a little reminder about what happened in One to Leave, how Stuart and Mariska met and how they became to be the couple that they are. With that being said, this is one HOT primer and a good way to get the idea of the relationship. If you haven't read One to Leave you are missing out but you can read this to get the general idea before diving into One to Take. Tia Louise, you never cease to amaze me with your talent and writing style. Even though this was a short reminder it made me fall deeply for Stuart again.

"Memorable " is what this book is! That is the first word that came to mind. To leave a review. Usualy you have thought out and know what to say. But for me all I can say is buy this book and read it for yourself. You will not be sorry you did! Great writing skills! Tia really knows how to make you see and experience all her character's! I really enjoyed reading this one.
