“I can’t live knowing every time you go out, you might not come back.”

A beautiful vigilante and the hero she never knew she needed…

Intense, SEXY, thrilling, and entertaining as hell...Tia Louise sure knows how to bring a girl to her knees in just a few pages! These characters were absolutely ELECTRIC! Hit Girl has got to be one of my FAVORITES of Ms. Louise’s work. Nail-biting, heart-clenching, provocative, and powerful, HIT GIRL gives us a strong heroine that we can admire and a devoted her

To say I was excited to get my hands on this book would be an understatement. As much as I couldn't stand Molly's character in the previous book I was still super intrigued with the whole "HIT GIRL" out for revenge angle. And I was curious to see if this author could pull off the impossible and get me to LIKE (maybe even LOVE) Molly's character. Hint...she DID. So on to the deets...the writing was fantastic (it always is with this author). The pace was perfect, and I nev

Hit Girl, by Tia Louise, is the story of love, revenge, and rebirth for Molly Dixon. We first met Molly as a little thirteen year old girl in The Bright Lights Duet. You can definitely read Hit Girl as a stand alone. But if you want the story from the beginning, Molly’s back story and the story of the woman who saved her, Lara, I highly recommend the duet. It’s a story you’ll never forget. Now for Molly’s turn.

As a little girl, Molly suffered abandonment, fear, and pain in the worst possible way

WOW! Tia Louise has delivered an intensely amazing book with Hit Girl.  I am a big fan of a strong heroine and Molly was that and so much more. This I believe is a spin-off from The Bright Lights duet but since I have not read those yet (but plan on going back asap) I read Hit GIrl as a complete standalone.

There was so much to love in this book. Tia Louise is a fantastic author and that shines through in the story. IT was incredibly well plotted, the characters had so many levels to them, and th

4.5 Stars! I have not read any books about the other characters in this series but Molly and Joshua...I kinda love you! What's not to like about a kickass girl getting revenge on the men who abused her in life? I saw her as an avenging angel who protected the innocent girls. Joshua just wanted to feel like Molly was as invested in their relationship as he was. The ups and downs with Molly's secrets and her friends that care about her was definitely a touchy point in the story. As much as I was c ...more

Hit Girl is the third book in the Bright Lights series by Tia Louise. It can be read as a complete standalone though, so don't let that deter you if you haven't read the previous installments. This is my first time trying this author's work, and it didn't hinder my enjoyment of the story at all. That being said, I do think I would have loved it even more if I read the first two, so if they interest you, you should definitely give them a try.

Molly had dedicated her life to fixing all of the wrongs that our judicial system couldn’t right. Born out of the pain and devastation she suffered as a youth, her mission was honorable and true in her eyes. Seriously, although I’m a legal professional and I have sworn to uphold the law, there are times when I can totally understand the necessity of vigilantism. But don’t tell anyone ;)

Hit Girl was the very first book I've read from Tia Louise. While it's a spinoff from her Bright Lights duet, it can and was read as a complete standalone. I was immediately swept up in this dark and sordid world of revenge and violence through the hypnotic writing style of this author. Hit Girl is both grim and romantic, a story of finding the light after years of fighting in the dark, and it kept me turning the pages eagerly to see where this story would go.

From the moment I finished the Under the Lights duet, I was hoping and praying for Molly’s story. Just like her, I need to see her her justice, whether that was through legal means or vigilante revenge. It just needed to happen, and Tia Louise delivered one wild ride of hate and vengeance as well as love and rebirth. I couldn’t have been happier with her journey.

I’m in AWE! This thrilling read kept me on my toes from beginning to end! I’m still trying to figure out exactly how to classify Hit Girl, but I can tell you one thing with definite certainty... it was ENTERTAINING!

Molly’s past haunts her so she’s perfected the art off shutting out those who love her. Whike Joshua is concerned with her past and the lingering affects it has on her, he’s more concerned with their future. Let me stop her to say a couple important things. First and foremos
I absolutely loved the Bright Lights duet and novella so when I finally got my hands on Hit Girl I was giddy with excitement. Molly has had a life made up of nightmares.

And there she finds a release from the torment and a journey that sets her in the direct path of Joshua.

Josh and Molly’s story brought tears to my eyes. It is sweet and heartwarming. Their connection and chemistry kept the pages streamy and intriguing.
Two lost souls with secrets, one could destroy them the other heal them. When the past comes back, Molly is willing to risk it all even Josh to fulfill her childhood mission. Josh’s won't give up without a fight—but is it too late.
Lives will be permanently changed when lies, secrets, and revenge are revealed.

With Hit Girl, Tia Louise gives her readers one intense, suspense-filled romance. Molly Dixon is a badass set on a mission of revenge. A self-proclaimed vigilante, struggling to survive a horrific trauma from her childhood, she copes by taking matters into her own hands by dishing out justice.

Molly, if you remember,was Laura's friend/sister/protégè sorta in New Orleans theatre in Bright Lights dries. When they have to abandon ship and run away to Paris, to save themselves, that's where THIS story starts.
Molly has been troubled by the nightmares from Gavin,the theatre owner, and his paedohilic brother Guy
She finds a nice, caring companion in Joshua. He really loves her so worried, naturally, asks her to slow down on her missions. Molly is so driven, she rather leaves Joshua.

Omg, this took ages to get through, but that’s cos I had to go back and read the Under The Lights duet, so that I could actually feel a connection to the storyline and understand the who’s who of all the characters. Some smarter readers had no probs jumping in to this as a standalone, but I’m a slower kinda gal and was desperate to be shown, not told.
Dual POV, with HEA. Loved the premise and storyline but found myself skimming and distracted during the non-romance/relationship dialogue.

Sexy. Provocative. And a major hit. Tia Louise has written one of the most thrilling, intense, and entertaining reads of 2018. Hit Girl might be one of one favorite reads that Tia Louise has written so far. This book was action packed on revenge, romance, and second chances. It took vigilante romance to a whole new heights as she had me totally smitten with the heroine and hero. So if you are looking for a story that was explosive, engaging
