I’ve never read anything like this before, the plot was just absolutely amazing at every twist and turn, and it was so amazing to get a glimpse of life in New Orleans. I especially loved the female heroine, Lara, as I saw her throughout the book being a fighter. She continuously battles outside sources and puts her own emotions on hold in order to protect herself and Molly. Mark, oh god mark! He’s so dreamy. He cares so much about Lara and that itself makes me completely starry eyed over him.
This does end on a cliff hanger-and I’m dying to read more of Mark and Lara’s story! A definite must read by this author! But the next book comes out at the end of the month so not a long wait at all. - By Victoria
I think there needs to be a warning on Under the Lights for those that have triggers. Because bad things do happen. But, they are all what makes this book.
This story is set in a strip club that is a front for sex trafficking. Just the setting should set off this warning that is a dark subject. Larissa (AKA Lara) is a young woman whose star is on the rise in this strip club. She is a singer who hasn’t had to strip yet but, knows it won’t be long. No one ever gets a free ride. Mark falls for Lara and he just tries to keep her safe with his limited resources.
Under the Lights has romance, heartache & angst. These are dangerous times and they are just trying to survive.
I loved reading this book. Oh, there is a cliffhanger at the end. I can’t wait to read the conclusion in Under the Stars. Coming this month. So the wait won’t be long at all.
Under the Lights by Tia Louise was a good start to this duet, and I am excited to see how it ends, but to me, this book was a bit choppy at times and I found myself putting it down for a day or two, and the coming back to read it. It wasn't one of those books that I had to finish in one sitting like most of Tia Louise's reads.
Set in New Orleans, we meet Lara who is fighting to get out of a situation she's stuck in for herself and Molly, a young girl she is taking care of and has saved. She keeps her head down and does what she can and doesn't try to make any waves, until Mark enters he world and flips it upside down.
Mark's a wanderer who came to New Orleans because that's where his only living relative lived, and he hoped to stay with him while he saved up enough money to join the police academy, but soon things take a turn, and now Mark's working in the same seedy situation that Lara is, and he can't stay away from her.
The attraction between these two is unreal, and I loved hope protective of Lara, Mark was, but at the same time, I hated how quickly he was willing to give up his dream of being a "good guy" and quickly turn to being what he despised and working for the other side, just because he wanted to be close to Lara, throughout this entire book, this grated on my nerves about him, and made it hard for me to truly love his character. Lara on the other hand, I adored. She has a horrid life, but makes the best of it, and is protective of the ones she loves and will take the worse situations as her own so others don't get hurt. She does things she really doesn't want to, so other's don't have to suffer, and she really is an angel.
This book truly has a lot of twists and turns, and secrets and lies, and I will admit as the book went on, it did get better, because it did start off pretty slow for me. I am hoping that Mark does redeem himself in my eyes at least. The ending was surreal, and I did already one-click, Under The Stars to see, if nothing else, how Lara's story ends, because this girl definitely deserves a HEA!
