One to Leave by Tia Louise ~ Review

One to Leave

By Tia Louise

Some demons can't be shaken off.
Some wounds won't heal.
Until a pair of hazel eyes knocks you on your ass, and you realize it's time to stop running.


First off I have to admit I don’t read military romance. It’s a no-go for me, but I’d read and reviewed all of the previous books in the series, so I decided to stick it out. Starting the book took a while because it gives the background of the trauma Stuart is dealing with throughout the story. It’s not pleasant to read, and honestly, not something I want to think about. Getting past that part, the book became easier to read.

I didn’t particularly like Stuart, and I didn’t understand how Mariska felt so strongly about him. He’s not a nice, likable guy. If you can imagine Patrick, just picture the exact opposite and you have Stuart. Seriously, I wanted to kick him in the nuts.

Mariska was sweet and thoughtful and compassionate. She takes a big chance, but after that she seemed to lose her backbone. Thankfully, she found it again.

I didn’t connect with either character on a personal level, but I did enjoy reading about them. The story moves along pretty quickly without feeling like it’s skipping over how hard this type of recovery would be. One to Leave was a worthwhile addition to the series. Although I still think Stuart is an ass.
