Blog Tour and Giveaway: Tattered Love: Lola Stark

Add to Goodreads   
expected release Sept. 12, 2013

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.

Add upcoming book 2 Conflicted Love to Goodreads (Teeny and Trip"s story)

This was my love, her love--torn, damaged, broken, ripped apart and put back together. This was our tattered love.

Tattoo shop owner and artist Scarlett is feisty, independent, and a little damaged. She has been hurt in the in the past so is wary of relationships. She is a tomboy with some definite girlie tendencies and preferences, but is also at home with the boys and working on cars.
I just wanted a man who looked at me like I was his world. But now, I was happy to find a guy who didn't think the sun shined outta his ass, wasn't cheating, an asshole or a weird freak who walked around in my underwear and heels while I was out because it made him feel sexy...Apparently, I had a stamp on my forehead that said 'fuck with me, screw me over, or flog my shit'.

Mace walks into her tattoo parlor looking for his younger brother Trip and barrels into Scar's life. He is hot, tatted, recently left the Army, and is now home. They have an immediate attraction, chemistry and rapport. They both give as good as they get. Soon they are exploring things with each other and having a good time. Scar wants to keep having a good time and no attachment. Mace wants more and is determined to get itl.  Their relationship is hot, hot, hot! They are compatible in mostly every way except their difference views on commitment. But the closer they get, the harder it is for Scar to fight Mace's Charms. But doesn't mean she will make it too easy on him. 

"I gotta sort my shit out sooner or later, and she might be a girl worth sorting shit out for."

"She was mine, plain and simple and I didn't give two shits if she wanted to fight it...."

But Mace has secrets, several of them in fact. I love that he was this super tough guy but had a soft side and was caring, compassionate, and loving. Mace was not afraid to be goofy and sweet. Some of his antics were just priceless. But he struggled with insecurities and feelings of not being worthy. And Scar's issues from her past keeps holding her back at times. Once he tells her the whole truth, will it be enough to make her run?

"I'm a walking tragedy. Everything I touch turns to shit. I don't want that for you Scar."

The book went was sexy, swoony, steamy, emotional, and funny. Their interactions with each other and their friends were hilarious. This story also had secrets, betrayals, drama, tension, and heartbreak. There were even elements of mystery and suspense. There were significant emotional issues that had to be faced. Their perfectly easy relationship definitely became more complicated. They both made mistakes.  But I loved them together through it all. 

We were damn near perfect together. For every funny moment, there was a serious one. For every argument we had, there was  hot-as-shit make-sex. We balanced each other out. Although on occasion, I had to find inventive ways to shut her rambling moody mouth up. Not that I'd ever complain about it. 

And I adored her wild, outspoken friend Teeny and his brother Trip. They had a lot of tension and a whole story brewing between them too and I am looking forward to the next book Conflicted Love with their continuing story. Trip is more clueless than his brother and not quite ready to settle down. And their story is already intriguing. 

This book was engaging, well written, and flowed well. I got sucked right into the story and loved all of the rich likable characters. It had humor, romance, emotion, and lots of panty melting scenes.I am looking forward to more from this author and this series.
