    Well

    . I guess it is true what they say about the third time being the charm. After my first two books of 2018 were less than stellar, I had my fingers crossed that this one would be a hit. And I enjoyed this one a lot. Was it perfect? No. It was a bit too long, and the middle section dragged for me but overall it was a fabulous read, and I can't wait to see what the author has in store for us in the conclusion.

    Well

    . I guess it is true what they say about the third time being the charm. After my first two books of 2018 were less than stellar, I had my fingers crossed that this one would be a hit. And I enjoyed this one a lot. Was it perfect? No. It was a bit too long, and the middle section dragged for me but overall it was a fabulous read, and I can't wait to see what the author has in store for us in the conclusion.

    So deets...I found this one to be very well written. The pace in the beginning and near the end were both perfect. Like I mentioned above the middle part dragged a little and I found my attention wandering at certain points throughout. The plot was engaging overall, and that is what had me intrigued enough to slog through the slow parts. The angst level was medium. There wasn't any OW drama to speak of. There was some OM drama. The sex scenes were hot and plentiful enough to give the story some heat without taking over the plot. There was a fantastic cast of secondary characters that I hope we will read more about in the second book. Both main characters were very likable. They were also very young 21 (hero) and 20 (heroine). To be honest, they came across older in their portrayal (late 20's), but it wasn't something that bothered me enough to affect my rating. Mark was pretty much perfect. He was strong. Loving. All in from the moment he met Lara. Lara was a little less perfect for me. I struggled with her decisions. I get she had to do what she felt she had to do to support herself and Molly, but geez sometimes it came across like all she cared about was money...money...money.

    Last, this one wrapped up in a doozy of a cliffhanger. I am dying to get my grubby little hands on book two because I need to see where the author is headed with this story. From a quick glance at some reviews for book two

    will be the name of the game...squeeee. I love me a good revenge plot. So like I said, third time seem to be the charm for me and yours truly is giving this one two HUGE thumbs up.

    There are some authors that have the secret to a fabulous story nailed down and Tia Louise is one of them. Always exciting with detailed elements that beg you to keep reading late into the night.

    This new release is chalk full of pain, emotion, love, violence, tragedy, and heartbreak. So why read it? Because inbetween the lines there is a light there... but it will take until the next book to see it all.

    The character development is awesome. You become so attached and invested in these characters that whenever something horrible or tragic happens, you almost feel the pain too.

    I hated the ending. Hated it! I knew what was going to happen and did not want to face it at all. But yet, I know when we go through some pain, the happiness will come too.

    Excellent read and a fabulous plot that is raw, edgy and dark, just like we like!

    Under the Lights is book one in the Bright Lights Duet by Tia Louise. This book is like nothing I’ve ever read before. It grabbed me on the first page and I couldn’t look away until the end. And that ending…!!! What kind of torture was that?

    Mark Fitzhugh came to New Orleans because he had nowhere else to go. When circumstances once again leave him out on the street, he is taken in by a man who gets him a job on a set crew for a burlesque show in the dark part of town. He sees her his first day on the job, the angel. One of the rules is that the crew never bothers the girls. But he can’t stop himself. He had to get to know her.

    Larissa (Lara) was an orphan and when she was old enough, got a job as a singer and dancer at the burlesque theater. Her boss knew her mother and has made promises to Lara about how far she’ll have to go. But Lara knows she can’t trust him. That her day is most likely coming. Lara rescued an orphan girl she found starving in an alley, Molly. Molly is now thirteen years old and starting to develop. Lara keeps her protected as best she can but it’s getting harder to keep her safe.

    Lara is drawn to Mark the first time they spoke. She knows she shouldn’t let herself feel anything for him, to allow herself to hope. But she can’t help it. Through the weeks, they steal time together and fall in love. Mark keeps promising he is going to save Lara and Molly. That he’ll find a way to get them out of there. But he has no money of his own, no home to shelter them. Mark has her heart but she’s got to think of Molly. She has to find some other way to get them out.

    All is not as it seems at the theater. What you see on the stage isn’t all that’s going on. There are dark places, places you never want to go. Terrible things happen in those places. Terrible things Lara has to get away from. Terrible things she has to protect Molly from.

    This book gripped me right from the beginning. It was actually a pretty dark book. For just a minute you think that maybe Lara and Mark are going to find some happiness only to have it ripped away. I wasn’t prepared for the suspense in this one. My heart was beating! And don’t say I didn’t warn you that there is a cliff hanger. But don’t worry, the conclusion is almost here, Under the Stars.

Ever wonder what happens under the lights, it sometimes never as pretty as what you see on stage, in every dark corner there are secrets that haunt and own your mind, body and soul.

    Under the Lights has a feeling of the forbidden, but the beauty of falling in love for the first time. Ever wonder what happens under the lights, it sometimes never as pretty as what you see on stage, in every dark corner there are secrets that haunt and own your mind, body and soul. Two lovers who want nothing more than a better life and better circumstances; not afraid to dream big but trapped in their consequences. It’s fast and turbulent, sexy and fierce, brutal and kind wrapped up in a blanket of mystery. There are some dark elements to the story that might not be for everyone, but for those willing to take the journey, its definitely worth the fall. There is a cliffhanger, but the second book is out and ready to dive in.

But Mark isn't ready to give up on Lara that easily and will follow her down the path of darkness in order to keep her safe.

    Holy hell I was not expecting this story to kick my ass the way it did. The intrigue and suspense of not knowing what exactly was happening behind closed doors had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I loved that the story captivated me so much and had me wanting to climb into the dark underground of New Orleans along with these characters.

    Mark and Lara were both amazing to learn about, and there is much more that I want to know in the next book. I'm dying to get my hands on their conclusion so I can finally see what they make of themselves. The way this ended broke my heart and had me screaming for more. Any book that can make me that crazy is a win in my book and one that I highly recommend.

    is the first book in Tia Louise’s sexy and suspenseful ‘Bright Lights’ duet. It took me a bit to really get into the story, but once I did, I was hooked! I’m glad the second book comes out soon, because I need to know whats to become of Mark and Lara…

    Larissa, or Lara for short, works at an up and coming burlesque show in the french quarter of NOLA. When Mark first sees her, he’s taken. It’s love, or at least lust, at first sight

    Larissa, or Lara for short, works at an up and coming burlesque show in the french quarter of NOLA. When Mark first sees her, he’s taken. It’s love, or at least lust, at first sight. When he actually gets to know her, he’s a goner. But it’s complicated. The way Lara’s life is makes it difficult for her to be in a relationship. She has someone counting on her and she has to do what is best for the both of them.

    I adored Mark. He wanted so badly to take care of Lara, to make sure she was safe and happy. I understand all the complications, but I wish they would have just run off together anyway. I’m anxious to see how their story will turn out in the future after seeing how this one ended!

    I loved that this story wasn’t the same old same old. Tia Louise always does a great job of bringing unique plots to life. And I don’t even mind the cliffy, because I know the conclusion will be in my hands later this month!

    A new contemporary romance novel by author Tia Louise. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ This is set in the French Quarter in New Orleans surrounding the “Pussycat Angels” a Burlesque theatre a strip club that's a front for the underhanded world of sex trafficking.

    In this we meet twenty one year old Mark and twenty year old Lara but in the book they do appear a lot older which I was glad about.

    A new contemporary romance novel by author Tia Louise. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ This is set in the French Quarter in New Orleans surrounding the “Pussycat Angels” a Burlesque theatre a strip club that's a front for the underhanded world of sex trafficking.

    In this we meet twenty one year old Mark and twenty year old Lara but in the book they do appear a lot older which I was glad about.

    Lara’s dream was to become a singer..An orphan who wanted to make it big, she managed to sing her way into a spot on the show, but having no family, no money and nowhere to go, she's slowly she's pulled into the darker side of the business and she's scared for the young thirteen year old she's taken under her wing. How long can she protect her for?

    The last thing she needs is to become involved with a stagehand.

    Mark's dream was to become a policeman that was his main drive when he moved to New Orleans but in the blink of an eye he's fleeing a crime scene. He hears of crew needed on set at the 'Pussycat Angel's' which was only temporarily..

    Not looking for romance he's taken aback when he's drawn to one of the dancers..

    An undeniable attraction that turns into so much more, plans are made for the three of them to escape, but in the blink of an eye their dreams are shattered. No one comes out unscathed.

    Then he was doing underhanded things for the boss, being one of the good guys and chasing his dream was disappearing far into the distance. Once your in the 'Pussycat Angels' there's no way out..

    UNDER THE LIGHTS was a unique read which I can't compare to anything I've read before, likeable well rounded characters that you connect with. The only negative I have for this is that it appeared drawn out towards the middle segment and I found my attention span waning, but as your nearing the last few chapters it re-picks up and throws us over a doozy of a cliffy which has me craving the next book which is due on the 22nd of this month!!

    A sexy and romantic read with a bit of an edge. I enjoyed the story for what it was, and Mark was a great alpha male. The end was satisfying.
