RELEASE BLITZ ~ Misled Penelope Marshall & Tia Lewis

 

Title: Misled 
Authors : Penelope Marshall & Tia Lewis 
Genre: Mafia / Romance 
 
 
 
 
 

Mixing business with pleasure was not my usual MO as a bounty hunter—until her. 
She was scared and alone, running from the very man who’d hired me to hunt her down. 
I knew what he’d do if I turned her over—she wasn’t going to make it out alive. 
Common sense told me to look the other way. 
After all, no one f*cked with the Sabella crime family—until now.


 
 
 
 
 
 



 
 
Penelope Marshall

Penelope Marshall was born in the Philippines, and raised in Southern California.
She picked up writing in early 2016 and instantly fell in love with the craft. Her writing runs the romance gamut from sweet romantic comedies, to tough alpha male military suspense thrillers, with a little young adult, and paranormal thrown into the mix.
A good plot twist is what drives Penelope’s writing, striving for that jaw dropping moment at the end of each book.

I’ll go into the depths of Hell just to protect her.


As a hitman, my life is simple and about one thing only–kill my mark. Women are just a bonus. They don’t govern what I do or who I kill.

I don’t do emotions. I don’t talk about my past. And I certainly don’t fall in love.

At least until I rescued Tess.

I never thought I’d fall for a woman like her–blonde, beautiful, petite, and with mesmerizing blue eyes that see right into my tainted soul.

But when she’s threatened, my protective instincts kick into overdrive.

She’s mine. She belongs to me.

The Russian mafia is getting more desperate to get her back, and I’ll be damned if I let her go. I’ll risk my life a thousand times over, and I’ll take down any f*cking bastard who stands in my way.

Even if the consequences end up deadly.

The Hitman’s Property is a full-length dark romance novel that’s intended for mature audiences only. This novel address issues of a serious nature, including violence surrounding the nature of consent that may be a trigger for sensitive readers; contains disturbing situations, graphic language, violence and explicit sexual content.

I’m a hard, ruthless, and brutal killer… but I’m not letting her go. 

I’m the most feared man in South Boston. I’ve earned that title and the nickname “The Animal.” Women may think it’s because I’m wild in bed, and one night with me and they’d f*cking know it. 

But there’s a darker reason for my reputation… I think nothing about ending a life. Feelings are a luxury I can’t afford. 

Until her. 

I hear Tess cry for help and I give into the urge to help her. One look at her and I knew I had to risk it all to rescue her. I’m no knight

in shining armor; I’m saving her so I can keep the sexy spitfire for myself.

But the mob wants her back. She wasn’t meant to live through that night. 

No f*cking way I’m going to let that happen. Tess ignites a fire within me like nothing I’ve ever known. Her legs are meant to be wrapped around me, and only me. I’ll take on the whole Russian mob ―hell, the whole world―to keep the one woman who’s meant to belong to me. 

I’ll kill every bastard that tries to take her away. She can try to run, but she’s not getting away from this hitman.

We ate in silence, and she took the containers to the trash. When she returned, she bit her lip. It was a look I couldn’t read. I had no clue what she was trying to say. I just wanted to grab her luscious ass and see how she felt when I was deep inside of her. I didn’t care about any looks she would give me, unless she was on her back, legs in the air and looking wide-eyed up at me.

“So, Liam… let’s’ cut to the chase. Am I really your prisoner in this… dump?”

I wickedly laughed. “I think you know the answer to that.”

“I guess it’s official then?”

“Yeah. Besides, you don’t want to leave anyway.”

“Why do you say that?”

“Because if you go, you think you’ll come face to face with a ruthless Russian covered in prison tattoos, ready to finish what those bastards in the alley started. You have no choice but to stay with me. Like I said before, make yourself at home.”

She looked at the ground. The situation was clear. She was scared shitless of the Russians, and she wanted my protection. What wasn’t clear was why the Russians would have anything to do with some young woman. She didn’t give off the same type of vibe that most whores seem to have. She was also too feisty and didn’t have the dead eyes of being beaten down by life, or at least not yet. She was brave, too, or just plain stupid. You would have to be brave or stupid to run from the Russians like that. Whatever it came down to, it would mean work for me. It was always the same. 

People always wanted something from a man like me, because I was willing to do the things that most people weren’t. I’d kill anyone if you paid me enough. However, I had one rule: no children. Maybe I was kidding himself, thinking my rule made me less than a monster. 

Despite the seriousness of the situation, my mind kept dwelling on that hot body of hers. I’d love to have seen that ass bouncing on my cock as I pounded her deep from behind, one hand grabbing her hip, my other hand reaching around to her bouncing tits, pinching her nipples. 

“It’s my bet you’ve made a big mess with the Russians,” I said. “A real big mess. So, I’m going to need you to tell me why they’re after somebody like you.”

She bit her lip and shook her head. “I can’t. I’m sorry,” she replied. “I don’t trust you yet.”

“Maybe you’re smarter than you look, then. Apart from that yet part. You should never trust me. Let me tell you that up front. Trust me, and you’ll be making a terrible mistake.”

“I don’t think you’re the monster you’re pretending to be. A monster wouldn’t have stopped when they heard my screams.”

“You’re wrong, Wendy,” I said, openly staring at her. “You just have to ask yourself what kind of monster would take a woman like you as my possession? I’m that kind.”

She looked away, crossing her legs and sighed.

I could have walked away. Hell, I could have run. I could have gotten in a cab and gone home. I didn’t even have a purse with me, only some cash in my back pocket. I hadn’t wanted anybody to find my ID and put two and two together.
I didn’t. I stayed where I stood. Held in place by Drake’s voice.
“Are you going to answer me?” he asked. I turned to him.
“Could we not talk about this right here?” I asked, looking around. “It’s a little public out here.”
“Fine.” He grabbed my arm and pulled me around to the side of the building, where there was no one but us. “Tell me what’s wrong with you.”
“I thought after today you wanted me, is all. And I thought, okay, I’ll make a move. But you made me feel like…”
“Like what? A slut?” He smirked.
“You think this is funny? You’re disgusting!” I raised my hand to slap him, instinct taking over, and his hand was out in a flash to grip my wrist. He had the reflexes of a cat to go with the way he moved.
“That’s more like it,” he murmured. “That’s the real you. Not the one who flashes her tits and tries to come on to me. You’re the girl who tries to hit me because she doesn’t know what else to do to pretend she doesn’t want me.” He leaned in, pushing me back until
I was pressed against the sun-warmed bricks of the Clubhouse, still holding their heat from earlier in the day. My body burned the way
they did.
“Leave me alone, Drake.”
“You act like that because you don’t like the way I talk to you. You’re not used to guys talking to you that way. But you like it. You like it when I do it, and you hate yourself for it, and you put up walls between us.” His body was against me, all muscle and strength and power. I felt the heat coming from him, too, just like that from the bricks. Sweat trickled down the back of my neck.
“Stop this.” I turned my head away, as his mouth was so close to mine. “Not this way.”
“What way?”
“I don’t like it like this. Stop trying to overpower me. You don’t have to try so hard.”
“And neither do you.” He placed a finger under my chin, turning my head until our eyes met. “I wouldn’t work so hard to get through to you if you didn’t work so hard to keep me away. Why don’t you just give in to what you want? What we both want?”
“And that is what?” I could hardly breathe, my heart was racing so out of control. My knees were jelly, the blood rushing in my ears.
“For me to take you to my room and give you a night you’ll never forget.” He brushed his lips against mine, ever so gently, causing a blazing inferno to erupt and consume me. I leaned further in, closer to him, but he pulled back with a devilish grin.
“See? I know what you want better than you do. And I can give it to you.” He licked his lips. “You want it?”

“Yes,” I breathed. It was so easy to give in. Drake was right.

BLOG TOUR ~ Stadium of Lights by Tia Lewis

 

Title : Stadium of Lights 

Author : Tia Lewis

 

Genre : Steamy Sports Romance

 

 
 
 

 

 

 

He can’t help claiming her. But can he love her?

Max Anderson enjoys all the perks of being a star NFL quarterback―including the women. He has no intention of changing his carefree, hard-loving lifestyle … until a twist of fate reunites him with the girl he knew growing up.
 
Abby Morrison has worked hard to become a physical therapist. She knows she needs to keep things professional with Max — but the truth is, she’s always loved him. Back then, she hid it. Now, it’s not so easy.
  

As they rekindle their friendship, the heat between them is impossible to ignore. Soon it flares out of control, and the fallout threatens to ruin everything. Can they salvage a future together … or will the consequences wreck their lives?

 


 
 
 

The time came around nine o’clock when we’d all stuffed ourselves. Abby stood up from the table, a little wobbly. I swooped in, waiting for her to decide it was time to go.

“Come on. I’ll take you home,” I murmured, taking her by the elbow. She looked up at me.

“No,” she murmured.

“What?”

“No. I don’t want you to take me home. Now will you move?”

“Wait. Slow down.”

“I want somebody else, Max. Now move.”

“Who?”

“Anybody. It doesn’t matter. Just not you.” She shook me off—thank God we’d both been whispering, or practically, because it didn’t seem like anybody else noticed. I followed her out the door to the restaurant’s entrance.

“You can’t drive in this condition,” I warned her.

“Then I’ll get a cab. You can leave now.” She glared at me, her cheeks flushed.

“What?”

“You ruined it. You always ruin it.”

“How the hell did I ruin anything?”

She looked back into the restaurant, frowning. “I was having fun. People were talking to me, seeing me, liking me. And you had to take over like you always do.”

My car pulled up in front of us, and I took the keys from the valet. “Come on. I’ll drive you home, and we can talk about it on the way.” I practically threw her into the car before she could curse me out, then got in myself. Once I locked the doors from my side, she couldn’t open them.

“What the fuck Max!” She slapped the dashboard, then sank into her seat with a groan. “I was having fun. I was about to get laid, damn it!”

I bit my tongue until I calmed down. “By whom?”

“I don’t know! What did it matter? I was gonna get some for me, for once. And you won’t let me. I have to always be there for you, but you can never be there for me. You couldn’t just let me enjoy myself. No, you probably wanted to tell me all about your stupid fucking cheerleader girlfriend and ask me what you should do about her!” There was so much venom in her voice. She hated me. 

I pulled over to the shoulder of the road. “What are you doing?” she asked. I unbuckled my belt without saying a word, then turned to her.

“You wanna know why I wanted to take you home?” I reached out, grabbing her by the shoulders. I pulled her to me before she could push me away and crushed my mouth against hers. 

She only fought me for a split second before giving in. She sighed, relaxing, and I wrapped my arms around her. Her lips were so sweet, soft and yielding. When I slid my tongue between them, they opened to give me better access. I tasted the inside of her mouth, taking my time. This girl who had been my friend for so long, and she was right—I’d used her in a way. This girl who was always there for me without asking anything in return. This sexy, incredible girl.

The kiss deepened, with her tongue dancing alongside mine. She wrapped her arms around my neck, almost growling. Sounding hungry, desperate. I ran one of my hands over her body, listening to the way the breath caught in her throat. She whined a little, pressing against me, and when I made contact with her tits she moaned into my mouth.

By the time the kiss ended, we were both breathless. Her eyes were wide, stunned.

“That’s why,” I whispered, tucking a strand of hair behind her ear.

 


 
 

 


 

BLP REVIEW ~ Tracy

Stadium of Lights was a good read, although I must admit that I’d didn’t enjoy it just as much as I enjoyed the last book of Tia’s that I read!

Max drove me up the wall at points – he was full of himself, a walking, talking ego and not very likable at the start of the book (he did get better as the story went on). He wasn’t sure that he was interested in Abby but was p’d off that one of his teammates was interested.. talk about mixed signals for a gal!!!
Abby was likable though I would have preferred her to have more confidence when dealing with Max at times. She’s worked hard to get where she is and is really good at what she does, she should have kept that in mind and not had dips of self-doubt at times!
One thing that I’m not a fan of in books is a lack of communication and this happened with these two at points… and a couple of things were kinda rushed or not cleared up which I thought could have been rounded off.

When they got together they were smokin’ hot, they had a connection, good banter, they liked each other and worked well together.

As I said, a good read, not one I’m not sure I’ll go back and reread but I’m looking forward to what Tia has next!! 3.75*.

Genre: Sports Romance 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jake lives and breathes football. When he’s not demonstrating his skills on the field, he’s busy putting the moves on every hot girl on

campus. The last thing he needs is a tutor cramping his style … but curvy Claire gets under his skin in more ways than one.

 

Claire can’t stand football players, and Jake is just as cocky and arrogant as the worst of them. He’s also impossibly sexy. Despite

their frequent arguments, she starts to see another side to him — and finds him increasingly hard to resist.

 

When they finally surrender, the heat they generate could melt the North Pole… but is Jake really willing to sacrifice his image for

Claire? Or will she be left on the sidelines with a broken heart?

 


 


 


This is the first book from Tia Lewis, and while the characters were a bit younger than others I’ve read lately, I really enjoyed the story.

I liked that there was more to Jake and he wasn’t just your atypical college jock, even though that’s how he initially came across. To an extent he didn’t ‘fit in’ when it came to the rest of his team mates but from the outside you’d think he was exactly like them.

Claire hung with the geeky group and had preconceived ideas of the kind of guy Jake was when she signed up to tutor him – not helped by the fact that she hated footballers.
She was smart, studious and hard working, he was football mad, not too interested in studying and focusing on his grades and you’d never think this pair would get along.

When the tutoring starts they definitely don’t hit it off right away, they snark and argue back and forth pretty much every time they are together but as they start to spend time together you begin to see a different side to both characters and they begin to connect – in fact, after a while they connect really well!!!

Outside factors in the shape of family and friends and things that happened in the past give you insight into what has shaped both Jake and Claire. Initially, both main characters were quite unkind in what was thought and said before they got to know each other – it has to be said that their friends were worse, to the point it seemed quite cruel on occasion, even though we discover that there are possibly other reasons for the negativity and dislike….
I really enjoy a dual POV and finding out what makes each character tick…. Through the story both Jake and Claire develop and they begin to look at the other in a different light.

I liked Jake’s coach and how he, along with Claire after a while, knew there was more to Jake than he believed and that they cared enough to make him see it for himself.

I would have liked an epilogue to see how things worked out but that’s my only issue to be honest.
A well written, enjoyable story (when I didn’t want to smack one or three of the characters!!) I’m looking forward to reading more books from Tia soon.

I can’t believe my coach assigned me a tutor. I’m all that on the field and between the sheets—who cares about my stupid grades?But Claire doesn’t treat me like I’m dumb. When we’re not busy fighting, she actually encourages me. And with those sexy curves of hers, I know just how to thank her.

Claire:
I hate football players, but I need the money. Jake is just as cocky and arrogant as the worst of them … but his touch sets me on fire.

I have to believe he’s different, that he won’t use me and break my heart.
Because I can’t stop wanting him. I just hope I survive the ride.

Excerpt

Her hands tangled in my hair, pulling me closer to her. I made a noise of surprise—she almost attacked me. She was desperate for it, for me. There was something about that, something hot. She needed me. I would give her exactly what she needed.
I hated myself for giving in so easy, even as I kissed my way down her body. She moaned, and didn’t stop me when I peeled away the sheets. The sight of her, all of her, had me hard in no time. I had to be inside her. I had to be. She had to open herself to me.
I ran a hand down her body, skimming her curves, taking her in. The narrow waist. The round hips. The firm thigh and calf. Then up again. My fingers caressed her, drawing sighs from deep in her throat.
“Yes,” I whispered. “Let me make you feel good.”
She whimpered then, visibly relaxed. I had her where I wanted her, and the thought made my cock throb again.
 

BLP REVIEW ~ TRACY

This is the first book from Tia Lewis, and while the characters were a bit younger than others I’ve read lately, I really enjoyed the story.

I liked that there was more to Jake and he wasn’t just your atypical college jock, even though that’s how he initially came across. To an extent he didn’t ‘fit in’ when it came to the rest of his team mates but from the outside you’d think he was exactly like them.
Claire hung with the geeky group and had preconceived ideas of the kind of guy Jake was when she signed up to tutor him – not helped by the fact that she hated footballers.
She was smart, studious and hard working, he was football mad, not too interested in studying and focusing on his grades and you’d never think this pair would get along.

When the tutoring starts they definitely don’t hit it off right away, they snark and argue back and forth pretty much every time they are together but as they start to spend time together you begin to see a different side to both characters and they begin to connect – in fact, after a while they connect really well!!!

Outside factors in the shape of family and friends and things that happened in the past give you insight into what has shaped both Jake and Claire. Initially, both main characters were quite unkind in what was thought and said before they got to know each other – it has to be said that their friends were worse, to the point it seemed quite cruel on occasion, even though we discover that there are possibly other reasons for the negativity and dislike….
I really enjoy a dual POV and finding out what makes each character tick…. Through the story both Jake and Claire develop and they begin to look at the other in a different light.

I liked Jake’s coach and how he, along with Claire after a while, knew there was more to Jake than he believed and that they cared enough to make him see it for himself.

I would have liked an epilogue to see how things worked but that’s my only issue to be honest.
A well written, enjoyable story (when I didn’t want to smack one or three of the characters!!) I’m looking forward to reading more books from Tia soon.
