**Blog Tour** 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?

Pulling my keys out, I started the engine and took off towards Bob’s. “You want to lick my face?” I asked her with amusement.

“No! Why would I do that?”

I coughed to hide my laughter and asked, “Babe, I’m almost there to get you. Can you and Teeny stay inside for me?”

This was initially met with a moment’s silence, then Scarlett yelling, “You make my vagina all melty—wait no!—You make my belly all melty. My vagina’s hot!”

I chuckled through my words, “It sure is, babe, but I’m not sure I want the entire bar knowing that.”

This girl is a fucking riot!

Scarlett sobered, and ever so seriously told me, “Oh, but they can't see it. Do you wanna see my vagina?”

Hearing her talk about her sweet pussy made me groan. “Babe, I'm pulling in to the bar’s parking lot now. Where are you?” I asked, jumping down from my truck and locking it.

“Teeny needed to pee,” she whisper-yelled down the phone.

“I’m hanging up the phone, babe. See you in a second.”

“Mm-kay,” she hiccupped down the phone.

Hanging up and slipping my cell into my back pocket, I pushed my way through the crowded bar. I headed toward the restrooms, when all of a sudden, I was knocked back a step by Scarlett jumping on my front and wrapping her jean-clad legs around my waist. My hands automatically went to her ass to hold her up. Scarlett was beyond drunk, but I couldn’t help be relieved that she was in my arms, plus she was a fucking hilarious happy drunk, not a crier or drama queen. She started sucking on my neck and grinding herself against my crotch.

“Ahh, Scar, babe, you need to not do that right now.” Shit, she was whimpering and squirming and her breathing had picked up. My dick wasn’t obeying my brain. Scar was way too drunk for this. I slid her down my body, holding her arms to steady her.

“Ready to go home, babe?”

“Yes prease, pwease, please,” she answered, apparently confused by the slur in her voice. “Oh, Teen’s staying at my place,” she hiccupped, her voice filled with drunken excitement.

I looked up as the restroom door swung open, and the second drunk in question stumbled out of the bathroom shoving her panties into her monstrous bag. Shaking my head, I dragged both girls out to my truck while they stumbled on their feet and dodged what they swore were talking trees.

My Review

Tattered Love is Lola Stark’s debut novel and the first book in her Needle's Kiss series. No spoilers here but I shall warn you about one thing, you are going to find you’re next Book Boyfriend right here, in the pages of this book,  without a shadow of a doubt the sexy, domineering dirty mouthed Sexy ex-Special Ops hottie is gonna  make bits of you tingle!

Scarlett our successful Tattoo Parlour owner is feisty, independent, sassy, and she says it as she sees it and I truly loved this about her. Her track record with men is somewhat dubious hence her reluctance to let herself have feelings for just another man, but what cannot be denied is when she lays eyes on Mace for the first time she wants a piece of that.  Mmmm Mmmm

a little saying I like to live by.  Keep your head, heels and standards high” – Scar

Mace walks in to her shop having now left the army and I’m a sucker for a male POV so we get to know what he really thinks when he sees her too. The ghosts that haunt him are a constant guilty reminder of his past. But can he now see a future when he meets his match in Scar?

"You need to know I always get what I want, Scarlett." – Mace

And of this I have absolutely no doubt…….

For them both, at first it is most definitely lust at first sight however it’s not long before these two cautious souls are unable to deny that their feelings may run deeper.

I loved Mace and Scarlett together, him the  overbearing Alpha male and the constant sarcastic witty banter from Scar, well quite honestly it was perfect.

And as for the sex scenes, well brace yourselves because these two have hot, scorching, fiery, blistering, heated sex which Ms Stark writes with a realism that will having you wish you were not reading the book on a train. Just saying!

Tattered Love was an outstanding debut novel, the characters were real people and only a great book makes you feel that way. And so for the next book in this series which will be about Teeny & Trip.
