(Conflicted Love is book #2 in the Needle's Kiss series and should be read AFTER Tattered Love to fully grasp the story.)

Trip’s life motto is simple: get in, get off, get out. His lifestyle works for him, that is until he finds himself in an unexpected situation with the one girl he can't seem to get out of his mind.

Teeny has been strong for too long. One amazing crazy night, with her best friend's cocky colleague, leaves her with more than just unwanted feelings and cravings she just can’t seem to quench.

She's knocked up.  He's freaked out. 

Life is about to get crazy for two people who can't stand to be close, yet can't seem to pull apart. Tension and confusion turn into mood swings and midnight snacks. How can things ever go back to simple times when every direction leads to chaos?

Kim's 4.5 star review
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.

Twenty minutes late and running out of patience I reached in quickly undid her belt and picked her up, ignoring her squeal of surprise I pulled her purposefully flush against me one hand full of lush ass the other on her hip.

Lowering my head to her neck I took a deep breath in, catching the soft vanilla scent of her blonde hair taking as much as I could get I gently bit her earlobe then ran my lips over the same spot.

“Don’t push me, Princess. I’m clear out of give a fucks and my dick's so hard it could hammer nails. Move that sweet ass before I bend it over and fuck it into oblivion” I growled in her ear driving the point home with a quick swat to her ass.

Making sure her feet were on the ground I let go and stalked for the house adjusting my now very tight in the crotch jeans. I also didn’t miss the soft moan from Teeny before she cleared her throat and mumbled something about assholes and penis trucks then stomped up the sidewalk.

In Tattered Love, we watched Mace and Scarlett fall hard for each other. We also saw his younger brother, Trip have one impulsive alcohol induced romp with her best friend, Teeny and now they have a little issue to deal with.

One night of stupid, drunken decisions and I'd royally screwed up years of carefully constructed friendship.

Teeny is tough, sassy, independent, and has a temper. Trip is bossy and crass, a bit clueless and immature. She was not sure she ever wanted to have kids. She has issues from her past that still affect her. His mantra was never be with a chick more than once, so he was certainly not looking for a relationship. 

But suddenly their worlds are rocked. And I was fascinated by the transformation of Trip. I loved seeing him go from Mr. "Wham Bam Thank You Ma'am" to Mr. "Protective". Trip totally had a soft side under those tats, piercings, and tough playboy persona. And he just melted my heart. Teeny had big walls up and lots of insecurities. No matter what poor Trip did it just never seemed to be enough. I fell in love with the big goofy oaf who had such a good heart and really tried his best. They had such fiery chemistry, but it also meant lots of fighting and misunderstandings. They were both stubborn, pigheaded and sometimes oblivious. But they had me laughing out loud especially at some of the things that would come out of Trip's mouth. And some of Teeny's hormonal fits were priceless. They went round and round and each one gave as good as they got. It was frustrating at times and  I wanted to shake sense into them. But in the moments where their guard came down, they were sweet and steamy.  

"Been a f*** up my whole life...but I swear, Teeny, if you let me, I'll do this right. I'll do this one thing right."

I enjoyed getting to continue Mace and Scarlett's story. They are outspoken, outrageous, and hilarious in their own right. This book was not as mysterious and emotionally dark as the first book, but I loved the characters and their story.  We also got a glimpse into the next book with Mace and Trip's sister, Haven and one of their friends. Something tells me that is going to be big trouble!

Lola Stark's writing style just flows so easily in both points of view. I was pulled right in, got sucked into the drama, and was totally invested in the outcome. It had angst, drama, humor, romance, sweetness, and major steam. And all along it was quite entertaining. I look forward to more from this author and this series.

Thanks to Lola Stark for providing me with an arc in exchange for an honest review.
