BLOG TOUR, Review, Excerpt & Giveaway: Tattered Love by Lola Stark

When ex-Special Ops bad-ass Mace walks into Needle's Kiss tattoo parlour, he never expected to find the girl who would turn his life upside down.


Hard as nails Scarlett has been unlucky in love: she’s been burnt, chewed up and spat out. Reluctant to have another relationship, can she keep her wits about her when hot-as-sin Mace walks into her tattoo parlor? Or will he break her down and leave his mark within her ink?
What starts out as a little fun, turns into something so much more.
Can Scarlett look beyond Mace's devastating past or will his demons come back to haunt them both?
Content warning: contains steamy, anywhere-goes sex, an alcohol induced embarrassing night out and two headstrong lovers taken on a whirlwind of crazy.

I stepped out of the shower and reached for the lone towel I kept in the rarely used bathroom. Wrapping it around myself, I realized I didn’t have any clothes down here. That meant I’d have to make a run for it.
Knowing my luck, I’d fall face first on the stairs.
Opening the bathroom door, I didn’t bother to look around; I just made a mad dash for the stairs. Halfway up, I heard a laughing Mace yell, “I’ve seen it before, baby. I’ve licked and tasted every inch of your perfect ass. Run all you like, I’ll catch you again.”
I had no doubt he’d try his damndest to do just that too. .
Stomping my way back down stairs after I dressed in my ugliest pajamas, hopefully turning Mace off, I heard the shower running. Mace was in the shower and I’d used the only towel in the bathroom. Shit.
I ran upstairs as fast as I could to grab one. Apparently, I wasn’t fast enough, because as I rounded the corner, he was walking toward the kitchen wearing nothing but a smirk. The pile of towels I had been holding dropped to the floor. My jaw slack, my eyes followed his very naked, very firm ass as he casually strolled to the fridge, opened it and pulled out a beer. Turning as he popped the cap, he cocked an eyebrow and asked, “You want one, babe?”
Void of any coherent thought, I just stood there gaping like a fish out of water.

“Take that as a no then.” He scratched his chest and strolled by, dropping a kiss on my forehead as he passed. “Love them PJs. Love to take ‘em off too, but I’ve gotta get some shut eye. Night, babe.” Mace flopped down on the couch and got himself comfortable.  

WOW What a Debut Novel by Lola Stark.
She had me at the opening line with the cherry-red 1967 Shelby Cobra GT500. I was hooked! 
Hot Sassy Chick, Hot ex-Special Ops along with Hot as F&*k Romance! What more Do you want!
 I absolutely loved this book that I had to read it twice. The characters through the story are what I loved the most. Meet Mace & Scarlett, I had enjoyed their much realistic relationship after such each a troubled past. The additional characters too brought a great dimension into the story line.

"Careful Mace, you don't wanna be getting me all wet now do you?" ~ Scarlett
"Playin' with fire there, babe" ~ Mace
"Oh, but I like when it's hot, Mace." ~ Scarlett

The only issue was that I had been it left me wanting more from Scarlett & Mace. But also wanting more details as to Janelle’s story, with her evil crusade against Scarlett.

Thanks Lola for a fabulous start to the Needles Kiss series and I look forward to the next installment with Conflicted Love.
