One to Chase (One to Hold #7) by Tia Louise [Review + Giveaway]

Paris fashions,
Chicago nightlife,
Secrets and lies...
Welcome to the North Side.

Marcus Merritt doesn't chase women. He doesn't have to. But when the spirited and sexy blonde who left him wanting more shows up in his office looking for work, little things like the rules seem ready to be rewritten.

Amy Knight is smart, ambitious, and back home in Chicago to care for her mother. A courtesy meeting with one of the top lawyers in the city should be a boost to her career...

Until the polished green-eyed player turns out to be the same irresistible “random” she hooked up with at a friend's wedding in Wilmington. Bonus: He's the brother of her older brother's new wife. What the hell?!

Who's chasing whom? It all depends on the day. Or the night.

 5 Run with me Stars
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 she left Chicago.  She travels and finds herself in Paris. Amy and Marcus meet and have a short fling. Amy doesn’t want any commitment. She doesn’t mind sleeping with the same guy over again, but she does do relationships.
Amy leaves Marcus and they don’t see each other until she shows up back in Chicago. Marcus is a ladies man. He doesn’t do relationships either, but there’s something about Amy he can’t forget. He’s a hot-shot lawyer and he’s interested in Amy.

First off, I love me a good lawyer book. Gah, it’s something about men in suits that just gets my insides all squishy. ALSO, Marcus wears glasses!!! Yes. Right? Sigh. Sorry. I had to calm my panties down. I am crazy for Marcus.  The story starts off with a bang, like really, it starts off with Marcus getting a little something something from a lady in the bathroom! You know you like it too.

Marcus is a successful lawyer and he loves his job. When he’s asked to help Amy out, he doesn’t realize it’s the same girl he met in Paris. Amy wants a job and she meets up with Marcus so she can help him with marketing. She doesn’t know it’s the same person she met in Paris too. Oh it’s a meet-cute I promise.

Amy is very firm in her situation. She doesn’t want any hanky panky with Marcus. She wants a professional relationship. Marcus wants his cake and eat it too. He works with Amy, but also pursues her because he just can’t help himself and I love it. I love it when the Hero chases after the Heroine (it’s really how all books should be, but that’s just me).

I don’t do what he wants. I don’t allow anyone to control me. I don’t let anyone take away my freedom.

There are some issues Amy needs to work out and it’s the reason why she is so guarded. I liked that there was a touch of tension because of this, but the best part of the book was the chemistry between Marcus and Amy. The steam was amazing and I couldn’t put the book down.

One to Chase kind of reminds me of Kendall Ryan books. In the sense, it’s short, sassy, steamy and very sexy. And I’m a mega Kendall Ryan fan. I can’t believe it took me so long to read one of Tia’s books. I’m slapping myself for being so silly. I’m starting this series now and guess what?! It’s available in audio, well don’t mind if I do.

Tia Louise is the Amazon and International Bestselling author of the ONE TO HOLD series. From "Readers' Choice" nominations, to picking up USA Today "Happily Ever After" nods, to winning a 2014 "Lady Boner Award" (LOL!), nothing makes her happier than communicating with fans and weaving new tales into the Alexander-Knight world of stories. A former journalist, Louise lives in the center of the USA with her lovely family and one grumpy cat. There, she dreams up stories she hopes are engaging, hot, and sexy, and that cause readers rethink common public locations...
