Review: One to Save

Thursday 15 January 2015
One to Save One to Save by Tia Louise
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Derek and Melissa are back for more fun…. and heartache!!!

We knew it was coming but boy did it hurt and I must admit to feeling slightly violent towards Melissa for putting Derek through what she did. I mean, didn’t Derek potentially save her from further harm? Didn’t he jeopardise his beliefs for her? Didn’t he dedicate himself 100%.... to her?!!!! Okay, time to calm down and think rationally.

Ok, what do we know so far…. We know Sloan is dead. We know Derek killed him. We know Derek was supported by Star and Patrick. So, who is holding the strings now and threatening Star and Derek? Who could possibly have evidence to implicate them in his murder? Funnily enough, Derek thought his biggest worry was telling Melissa the truth about what happened to Sloan but to find himself possibly facing prison, or worse… that’s a whole different battle.

I have to say it (please don’t shoot me) but I’ve never really been a fan of Melissa and sadly for me, this book didn’t put her in a more favourable light. Her mood swings could quite literally give you whiplash and the story for me was slightly spoiled because of them. Her change of mind about Derek came across too sudden but at least I was able to carry on and enjoy the book, despite witnessing Derek’s fight for freedom… and his life.

All the gang are back for this book and Stuart and Mariska’s story is built upon but more importantly, we get to enjoy Elaine’s brother, Marcus. Now he’s a character I’m looking forward to getting my hands on. The teaser at the end is quite delicious and from the sound of it, he is likely to have his hands full with Amy, Patrick and Stuart’s sister.

Another great instalment from Tia and the loveable gang from One To Hold. This story has lots of twists and turns, heartbreak, suspense, intrigue and most of all Derek. So what’s not to love?
