WARNING: Mature themes, strong language and sexual content. Recommended for adult readers (18+) only!

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 what is revealed during their "one week stand" only complicates matters.

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

Melissa has the year from Hell and somehow her best friend Elaine has managed to talk her into running away for a week at a spa thousands of miles away from the mess that her life is. While sitting at the hotel bar drinking the only cocktail she could think of that she doesn’t even like, she somehow catches the attention of the sexy Derek Alexander. When Derek comes her way, she’s floored by this as she’s normally not the girl to be on the receiving end of something like this. When Derek introduces himself to her, one thing leads to another and soon the most delicious one week stand commences.

A good majority of this book takes place in Scottsdale, AZ at the Cactus Flower Spa and Hotel where Melissa and Derek have the most sizzling romance I’ve read in awhile. Melissa takes Derek’s heart and leaves him in Arizona with hopes that when she cleans up the mess that is her life, she’ll be able to find Derek again. When Melissa returns to Baltimore this is where the story gets really interesting and you find out things you didn’t expect.

Tia Louise took my heart, ripped it out and stomped on it with this book. But no worries, she finds the duct tape and puts it back together again at some point. She gives us a lovely happily ever after with a very sweet epilogue. I highly enjoyed reading this book and I will gladly read any other book of Tia Louise’s in the future.

My name is Erin & I am from the Lansing, Michigan area. I'm an administrative assistant by day and a book nerd/web designer by night... I don' t leave home without my iPad and I' m always in the middle of reading a book, whether it be a YA book like those of the LUX Series or something dirty like those of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. It doesn't really matter to me as I like books of almost any genre, as long as there is a good romance involved! .gr_custom_container_1404041208 { /* customize your Goodreads widget container here*/ border: 0px solid gray; border-radius:10px; padding: 10px 5px 10px 5px; background-color: transparent; color: #000000; width: 500px } .gr_custom_header_1404041208 { /* customize your Goodreads header here*/ border-bottom: 1px solid gray; width: 100%; margin-bottom: 5px; text-align: center; font-size: 120% } .gr_custom_each_container_1404041208 { /* customize each individual book container here */ width: 100%; clear: both; margin-bottom: 10px; overflow: auto; padding-bottom: 4px; border-bottom: 1px solid #aaa; } .gr_custom_book_container_1404041208 { /* customize your book covers here */ overflow: hidden; height: 60px; float: left; margin-right: 4px; width: 39px; } .gr_custom_author_1404041208 { /* customize your author names here */ font-size: 10px; } .gr_custom_tags_1404041208 { /* customize your tags here */ font-size: 10px; color: gray; } .gr_custom_rating_1404041208 { /* customize your rating stars here */ float: right; } What I'm Currently Reading...
