One to Chase is the seventh book in Tia Louise’s One to Hold series. I will start by indicating that while this book can certainly be read as a stand-alone, I feel like it would be a much more fulfilling read if you have read the previous books in the series. I have been a fan of this series from the onset and once again this author has penned a seriously sexy tale of passion and romance.

Marcus Merritt and Amy Knight shared one scorching encounter when they meet by chance at a wedding. A

I was first introduced to Marcus & Amy in Runaway, a prequel to One to Chase that is free. In Runaway they are both attending a friends wedding in Wilmington when they cross paths. They are instantly attracted to each other, and have a passionate hot as hell hookup that leaves Marcus wanting more, and Amy doing what she does bes

“Baby, we’ve been flying since Day One.”

Marcus is said to be one of Chicago's most eligible bachelor and the best legal shark in the business. His skills are unparalleled, his needs easily sated; nothing shook him, nothing made him want more...until his little runaway comes walking through his door.

I don't know why I think I need to sleep...I must have decided it wasn't necessary....especially when I could spend those hours with Marcus in my bed instead...

Oh, I mean reading about him.

After all, she was amazing at that wedding of your sister's... and she got you all hot and bothered ...and then delivered

Women don't run from me. Not when I want to catch them. She projects a hotshot image in her power suit and heels, but one thing I know about runaways. They're afraid.

It seems that Tia Louise just keeps getting better and better. There's one thing I'm guaranteed when I pick up one of her books, and that's the fact that I'm going to be getting one hot alpha hero. Whether a marine, a cowboy, an underground fighter, she never fails to deliver and now she can add one sexy lawyer under her

This is book 7 in Tia Louise's One to Hold series and it was amazing! This author made me a believer in her talent the day Derek and Melissa hit my e-reader. I have followed each character and their journey throughout this series. Some tales were angsty, some suspenseful, others more thoughtful. Not one of them were lacking in the intimacy department as each one was beyond scorching hot!

This is my first Tia Louise book. I’ve seen her books loads of times and I’ve wanted to pick them up forever. One to Chase is a standalone and is part of the One to Hold series. You can read the mini-prequel, Runaway. It’s free and it explains how Amy and Marcus meet. It doesn’t give anything away. I read Runaway after I read One to Chase (but I’m odd like that. I like to read novellas after I finish the main book).

Amy had some stuff that’s happened to her and because of that

I am so over the moon over this book.

This is the first book I’ve read by Tia Louise and I have to admit I’m completely amazed!! Ms. Louise’s writing is so descriptive and so intense…what a thrill ride! WOW I have been missing out, this book had everything I love sex, angst, hot alpha male and smart sassy heroine.

Her characters were well rounded and developed. No immature nonsense and over the top drama. I loved the dual POVs, I found the back story intriguing an

I am a big fan of Tia Louise and the One to Hold series. I have read and loved every book prior to One to Chase, and as such it is with real regret that I can't offer a higher rating for this installment.

Where do I even begin to express how much I love and adore Tia Louise? So last year, I decided to read one of her books... then BAM.. I was addicted. I wanted more and couldn't get enough of her books. Yes, I was one of those readers who would stalk her upcoming new releases. And how could I not since she introduced me to Derek, Patrick, Slayde, Stuart, and now my new obsession Marcus.

WOW!! What an explosive opening!! Marcus Merritt – another totally swoony book boyfriend from Tia Louise!! ONE TO CHASE is a standalone; however, I highly recommend reading the other books in this series so that you can meet the other characters and fall in love with each and every one.

Marcus and Amy Knight are both independent to the extreme. Amy is running from her past and Marcus, well, he just has zero interest in any kind of lasting or deep relationship. This stunning lawyer is

Are you ready to experience spontaneous combustion? Ah yes – better have those fire extinguishers beside you because you are in for a one, hot, sexy and rollercoaster ride.

Tia Louise had always that capacity to make her readers swoon with delight and pant until they ran out of breathe. One thing is for sure though, she will never leave you unsatisfied.

These two have some serious chemistry in One To Save, and I was just too excited that I finally had the privilege to read their s
4 Stars!

It's my fifth or sixth read(i honestly lost count) basically i've read all Tia Louise's One to Hold series. and let me say, her work keeps getting better and better with every book i read - and honestly One to Chase is by far my favorite one in the whole series.

I loved this book because it focuses more on the main characters and you really get to know them. Marcus and Amy they really are a great match. loved how they were so perfect for each other. so passionate.

One to Chase, book #7 in the One to Hold series is all about chase. One important tip for those who are about to read this book: it is a standalone, however you will miss much not reading previous parts. I've been with this series from the very beginning and it is a pleasure to watch how the characters develop.

Marcus Merritt and Amy Knight, these two are quite the pair. Both stubborn and independent. They share a colorful past. One encounter in particular, which was the start of their affair, th

One to Chase brings new characters to our group of loved One to Hold characters.

This is part of her ONE TO HOLD series but can easily be read as a stand-alone. I LOVE everything about this series. The characters are strong and sassy and the storylines are fun and super sexy! If you've met any of these characters or if this is your introduction, you don't want to miss Marcus and Amy! Perfect beach read!
If you are looking for a romance that will put a huge smile on your face and a shade of pink to your cheeks, ONE TO CHASE by Tia Louise is the one to get! Anyone who has been following Ms. Louise's ONE TO HOLD series will expect something scorchingly sexy and romantic, and to say that ONE TO CHASE did not disappoint would be an understatement. Not only did Marcus and Amy's story turn up the heat, but this blistering HOT contemporary contained so much heart and emotion, that towards the end of th ...more

As with all of the other books in the One To Hold series, One To Chase was an absolutely amazing read. Amy is young, intelligent & believes that falling in love means giving up her dreams and control of her life. Marcus is a successful lawyer who is not looking to settle down and does not chase women. When they unexpectedly meet again, after a one-time wedding hookup, they can't seem to get enough of one another. I love there are ups and downs in this book. Easy romances aren't realistic and ...more

The thrill of the chase…and a good, dirty book to while away the hours with. That about sums up this one – my first Tia Louise book, but not my last!

Coming face to face with her wedding one-night-stand was not what Amy Knight was expecting when she agreed to meet the older brother of her new sister-in-law…

She’s back in the city looking for work, not a relationship and definitely not love. But that doesn’t mean Marcus Merritt is going to let the gorgeous blonde walk away without getting a littl

Marcus Merritt doesn’t play games, he gets what he wants. One night leaves him wanting more ironically, she doesn’t.
Amy Knight, independent, and has no desire to be anything but free to do what she wants and who she wants. But Marcus has other plans.

Chicago, back home starting over Amy finds conflicts at every turn, and Marcus seems to be around each corner she turns.
She runs……Will he get her in the end? Not if she can help it.

Home Run

I just stayed up way too late to finish reading this book. Once again Tia Louise has hit a home run; I don't think she can write a bad book.

This story focuses on Amy, Patrick's & Stuart's little sister and Marcus, Elaine's (Patrick's wife) big brother. In the last book in the series, Marcus and Amy had a hot and steamy one night stand, but they meet up again when Amy returns to Chicago to stay with her mother.

I've been looking forward to this book for some time, and Tia Louise did not disappoint! Amy and Marcus's story is a stand alone in the One To Hold Series, and it is hot and full of twists and turns! If you've read the previous books you know that Amy is the little sister of Patrick and Stuart Knight, and Marcus is Elaine's older brother.

Amy doesn't do relationships, she doesn't do commitment, she just does flings that don't require feelings other than friendship and some good times in bed. Marc

Amy is the spitfire younger sister to our two favorite Knight men. We saw her in the last book a bit but now we see there is so much more to her story.

Marcus, Elaines brother, had a one night stand a his sisters wedding that he can't seem to get out of his mind, and when she suddenly appears in his life he'll have to decide if his bachlor style life is how he wants things to continue to be or can he let this feisty woman become so much more to him?

I must begin by saying I Love this series. This is a fabulous addition to the One to Hold family!
Amy Knight has always shied away from commitment. Now don't take this the wrong way but if she has an itch believe me she will find a willing man to scratch it and they are always more than willing. She doesn't mind an occasional casual encounter with a hot sexy man. What sexy single gal would but she doesn't stick around long enough to see if it may be more than a fling!

Every time Tia Louise releases another book in her fabulous One to Hold series, I can't wait to dive in and see what conflict and angst her newest hero and heroine are going to run into as well as how the chemistry between them plays out on the pages, and Marcus and Amy definitely do not disappoint!

In my opinion, One to Chase is divided into two parts - Amy running and Marcus chasing and then Amy and Marcus trying to find a way to fly together, keeping the freedom Amy desperately craves and givi

I was excited to read more about all of the characters, but soon found out that there was little mention of previous characters in this book...and I didn't even give it a second thought because Marcus Merritt and Amy Knight had me completely wrapped up in their world.
