Review: Taken by Tia Louise (One to Hold #7.5)
Taken is a primer in the One to Hold series from bestselling author Tia Louise and is currently available for free on e-retailers. If you haven't read One to Leave, which is the first book in the story arc that's focused on Stuart Knight and Mariska Heron, you can choose to simply read this primer instead since it takes key chapters in the aforementioned novel and gives you a good enough idea of what went on plus includes new stuff as well. It's a really quick read, so if you don't have the time to sink into reading two novels in a row, go with this primer instead and then proceed to One to Take, the eighth book in the series.
Having read One to Leave before reading this primer, I admit that I ended up skimming through the chapters that I was already familiar with and paid more attention to the new parts in Stuart and Mariska's story, which occurred after the end of One to Leave. It also gives you an idea as to one of the possible changes that Stuart and Mariska will have to face in One to Take. That being said, you have nothing to lose by downloading Taken and reading it even if you've already read One to Leave. It's a free primer and it does include new material, so my suggestion would be to go ahead and get it. It gets 3.5 out of five stars. ♥
