This book is pumped full of great characters, smoldering scenes and witty humor. It’s about two individuals who find something sweet and special enough to let their guards down and relinquish their pasts.

"His voice sent chills down my spin, the man had a fucking awesome voice, all dark and rumbling. It was like sex, covered in chocolate, decadent and so very bad for you, but so good you couldn't deny yourself any of it, just like the rest of him."


I loved this book! I love me a strong heroine, and that's just what I got with Scar. She's one tough girl but still girl enough to relate to.

Explosive chemistry, incredible passion and desire as well as amazingly scorching sex with great addition of a charm right from LA Ink, that’s Tattered Love in nutshell. Everything a great romance junkie needs to keep her satisfied in this exceptional novel about kick ass tattoo artist chick and sexy as hell ex soldier. So ladies if you want to suffer from a case of soaked panties read Lola Stark’s debut novel, because it wouldn’t disappoint you and your vagina.

I really had high hopes for this one. But unfortunately, it started out in generic town....moved in to annoying heroine territory....only to end up in cheese city! I mean I did finish it--so that's a definite plus. And the sex was HOT. And I can't believe I am actually going to say this.....but there might have been too much sex. #neverthoughtiwouldsaythat

Scarlett owns her own tattoo shop, isn't looking for a relationship, her last boyfriend cheated on her, puts on this bad-ass front..

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



Scarlett Garcia fell at the feet of no gloriously delicious man!



Unless of course your name is Mace than all bets are off, this sex-on-a-stick seems to rattle all her control. Setting her sites on her latest conquest, "...two-hundred-and-twenty pounds of panty-wetting, drool-worthy, drop-to-your-knees and thank-all-that-is-holy muscled man."

Goddamn it I fucking Loved this book!
I wish it didn't end.
And when it did end I literally went back and read a few scenes... I'll get to that a bit later.

This is the first in the "Needle's Kiss Series". I have no idea how many books there are going to be, but I do know I will be reading EVERY.SINGLE.ONE.OF.THEM.
I can't believe it is a debut novel... the writing, the characters, the storyline, everything just "clicked" and I was immersed into this story.

I really enjoyed this. It’s a quick and sexy read with some great characters to get to know and love.

Scarlett, from now on known as Scar, is our heroine. She’s a girl that’s taken a few knocks but is now standing on her own two feet (in kickass stilettos) and running her own tattoo parlour. She’s gorgeous, sassy, feisty, fiercely independent and is not looking for love and commitment. No way, no how!!

And one day, in walks Mace. Mace is the military brot

What can I say??? This is an amazing ..hot..sexy...brilliant story. The characters leap of the page with their personalities. It's like Lola has made a mini movie in my mind. I can't get enough.

“The store was my life, my bread and butter, my father’s legacy in a way. He too had a passion for body art and encouraged me every day to ‘step outside the box’ and ‘do what makes you want to get out of bed every day. There’s no sense in doing something that makes your life mundane.’ I knew he’d be proud of me.”

Scarlett doesn’t need anyone. She is perfectly content to just have fun, f

Lola Stark brings us a combustible story filled with a delicious dose of alpha-male in the form of Mace and a sultry - no bullshit heroine in the form of Scarlett. Scarlett is the owner of Needle's Kiss, she is a little guarded and just the right mix of sexy and stubborn that sets off the caveman in Mace.

“You were just supposed to be a one night stand but you poked my eye, and kissed me sweet and listened to my car. Now, I kinda wanna keep you.”

Lola Stark has done a great job with her debut novel, Tattered Love.
I loved the story. I loved the characters. I loved the steaming hot sexiness which will be sure to have you fanning yourself at one point or another.

Scarlett, our heroine, is the best friend you wish you had. Strong, hard working, down to earth and most importantly, loyal.

I was asked to read an ARC of this book for an honest review. This is an ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC story!!!! I was hooked from chapter one and could not put it down until the end!!! It is one of the most engaging books I have read thus far this year! It is full of love, angst, intrigue, some sadness and even some really hilarious spots that had me laughing. It is a very enjoyable read and I am really excited that there will be a second book! This author has really done a great job of getting the read ...more

Quick smutty read. And I do mean smutty....lots and lots of it. Nothing really new to find here. Scarlett was a likeable leading lady (though suffered from I-can't-think-when-you're-around-itis). Definitely had her funny and badass moments (I'll forever remember her dick in the eye shower time - LOVE that the author could keep it real) and Mace pretty much tried to fit the alpha mold used by KA. I could have done without the "cheese" and didn't find it that believable that a guy like Mace would ...more

So i like Ls's writing stlye, and I liked the idea for Tattered Love but felt like the book didn't really live up to its' synopsis. And maybe it was just me, but it also felt like it was all over the damn place.

My number one issue was with the characterization especially in regards to the heroine: she's supposed to be this tough-as-nails, non girly, tomboy, bad ass chick, but holy hell was she annoying! She came off as the most high maintenance heroine, i just wanted the H to move on to someo

OMG! Epic grovel scene.

Tattered Love started off with an insta-lust scenario. This used to be a pet peeve of mine and I'd DNF several books because of this, but I learned to endure it over time so that I can get to the good stuff. I also wished to point out that the first chapter came off as too much info dumping on the side characters.

We have a heroine, Scarlett, owner of Needle Kiss tattoo parlor. When Trip's brother, Mace showed up at her shop, she was instantly attracted and wanted to have a

Tattered Love was one heck of a ride ~ I really didn't want to get off the ride ~ Scarlett is one bad ass chick! She's not a girly girl ~ She is into cars, drinking beer, kicking back with the boys and owns her own tattoo shop, Needle's Kiss. She has one girl friend, Teeny. She loves her high heels! She's tatted & pierced out and she is funny as all get out. She is a total....

Tattered love had me wanting to read more right from the start. Mace is your typical alpha male that I LOVE to read about, and left me wanting more!

Mace walks into the tattoo shop his brother works at and sees a woman that almost has him dropping to his knees.

When Scarlett looks up and sees a drop dead sexy man walk threw her doors she is lust at first site. Scar wants this sexy male, but plans on just getting him long enough to have some amazing sex and nothing more. Her heart has h
