My thoughts: So first, let’s start with Trip…

Trip, is Mace’s younger brother and Scar’s employee. He’s tattooed, he’s pierced, and is the ultimate playboy of one night stands.

Only… what’s a guy to do when one night turns into forever?

Despite his no strings attached sex preference, Trip has a strong attraction for Teeny, his Boss’s best friend, but fights it off until that fateful encounter.

BUT NOW, all bets are off after learning that Teeny is pregnant with child...HIS CHILD. It's

Oh Lord I think this book was better than the first installment! Teeny, I loved that girl, "no, Trip. No I'm not sure at all. I haven't had needles jammed into my arms, pi**d on sticks and spent most of my days for the last few weeks throwing up for sh**s and giggles," she snapped at me." It was interesting being in the boy's head, "I mean, it was a sh***y way to find out, and it was kind of sprung on me. What was I supposed to do?

Mirjana **DTR - Down to Read**

***3 Stars***

This was an okay, quick and steamy read that gets an extra star for Trip's hilarious rambling freak out during the delivery scene.

I would have liked this more if Trip and Teeny would've communicated more instead of constantly bickering and skirting around how they felt. And Teeny's frequent shouting, mood swings and bitchy attitude grated on my nerves after a while. However, I did appreciate all of the hot make up sex.

Conflicted Love ****Revised Review****

3 Baby Daddy Stars * * * plus one more for the Author *

Sometimes I will read something, get a general impression and want to share that with all of you. If I am smart, I usually give myself a little time to see what type of impact the story has on me; then share my thoughts and feelings.

With this book, I really didn't give enough time to see where it would take me; and because of that, I am revising my review.

“Say again?”

Trip and Teeny take you on one hell of a ride in Conflicted Love! Lola Stark is nothing short of amazing, and the story that unfolds holds true to the title…absolutely CONFLICTED!

Trip is your typical cocky bad-boy with some deep-rooted issues. So afraid of commitment, he’s not one to grace the same bed twice with the same girl…until a one-nigh

4.5 Trip-tastic Stars!

Teeny is Scar’s feisty best friend, she’s stubborn and filled to the brim with attitude. That’s what Teeny wants everyone to see when they look at her. Deep inside, Teeny fears turning into her mother; developing the same depression that she had, the one that drove her father away – eventually leaving her all alone.

Trip is Mace’s brother and works at Needle’s Kiss, he’s a bit goofy, sure of never wanting to settle down with one woman and a giant man-whore. Trip sees how i

First things first, you have to understand where I'm coming from in writing this review:
1. I did not read the first book because when I tried the first two chapters, I instantly did not feel the heroine AT ALL. And I knew I wouldn't be able to stomach her for the rest so bye bye.
2. I've been reading a lot of heavily emotional books and I just need a fluffy romance break. I saw a couple of reviews on this one and they said that there were some humour in it, so I checked out the blurb and decided

I was privileged to have the opportunity to read Conflicted Love early, and after reading it I could not wait to write a review.

I honestly thought Lola would not have been able to top Tattered Love.

She has!!!

Conflicted Love is a best read for 2013 in my eyes. The argueing, the banter, the sex and just (swoon)TRIP, will leave you hot from the first chapter and on.

Trip (I'm sorry Mace) is one guy I would love to meet in real life. He's hot, horny and fan-bloody-tastically funny!

When I first read Tattered Love I was blown away! I loved Scarlett so much where normally I have trouble relating to and liking female heroines. Many times they come across as snotty, whiny, bitchy, or just plain stupid. I was so overjoyed with Scarlett that I messaged Lola and told her how great that book and character was. When Conflicted Love was released I was super stoked knowing that I loved everything about the first book in the Needles Kiss series. I have to say this one did no

Sometimes in life you make a decision that you know might result in regret but you make it anyway then deal with the consequences,such was my decision to read this book 😂 . Book 1 was ok, book 2 was 50% push/pull,40% foolish, childish behavior and 10% ok reading with my 100% regret that I even opened this book. Tripp was ok, though he made some really dumb choices I had to keep checking for his age because he acted like a child a lot but 1.he didn't cheat 2.he was all in from the ultrasound goin ...more

This book was filled with tons of unnecessary drama that I felt so conflicted on how to rate this. All these drama was borderline annoying because it just went on and on and on right up till 60%. I love Mace and Scar's story in Tattered Love much more. And these two lovebirds were all over each other here and I love every scene with them in it. So make sure you read Tattered Love first.

Lola Stark has released two books this year and firmly planted herself in my favourite author category. Let me tell you why.

1) She mixes funny with sexy and then she adds a little bit of sweet with a side of serious. Some authors can't do this very well but Lola makes it appear effortless.

2) She creates swoonworthy men - hot alphas who adore and love their women with all their heart. And what woman doesn't want a man like this?? Me... said no woman ever!

3) She creates tough, independent

My honest review for Conflicted love.

This book was a stand alone about Trip and Teeny. Reading about their story was a roller coaster. I do love them together. As much as they argued and fought and cussed out one another, I love them as a couple. I'm so glad Trip took responsibility for his actions and put his big boy pants on, Teeny did annoy me in the beginning. She was so against everything that had to do with Trip, she refused his offers, she constantly was creatin

Conflicted Love is a great sequel to the Needle's Kiss Series. Trip and Teeny are an explosive pair. Pretty much everything felt right about their story. My one complaint is that Teeny is in her own head for a huge chunk of it. Trip goes above and beyond for her even after she constantly pushes him away. Other than that, their story is filled with witty banter, hot fights, and laugh-out-loud humor. Trip makes every effort possible to prove his devotion to Teeny. And when Teeny isn't completely o ...more

Little miss Lola Stark, you have done it again, my sweet! Not only do you manage to make me swoon on almost every page, you also have me shaking with laughter while I lie in bed and try desperately not to wake the whole house with my cackling.

I adore Trip! I adore Teeny! I adore Mace and Scarlet! I even adore every one of the secondary characters! Now add to that a healthy dose of pregnancy hormones, some Sexy McSex on a stick scenes that you should probably avoid reading on public transport, un

Not sure which of the two books I enjoyed more, I loved this one, and I think for me it just had the edge, I mean come on, I'll never be able to compare myself to Scarlett but at least I could identify with Teeny throwing up for her pregnancy!

I love Trip and Teeny together, they have a knack of pushing each other's buttons, and their make up sex is great.

After watching Mace fall hard for Scarlett in book one I wasn't sure if Trip would fall for Teeny as hard. I didn't expect him to pass out in

I didn't think it was possible to love Conflicted Love more than Tattered Love. I was seriously mistaken. Teeny and Trip are so imperfectly perfect for each other it's a bit scary! This book is hilarious, steamy, emotional and, did I mention, HILARIOUS!! If you have read, and loved, The Chocolate Lovers Series by Tara Sivec, you will LOVE the Needles Kiss series!! I am truly obsessed with these books and so cannot wait for more from the Needles Kiss family!!! ...more

“Conflicted Love” is the second in the “Needle’s Kiss” series. Reading book one would definitely be my recommendation, so you fully understand the characters in this one.

“Teeny was pregnant. Pregnant with a baby, a baby that may be mine. A baby that’s mine?”

Trip has always been the ultimate player. He never sleeps with the same girl twice, and never has feelings for any girl. Teeny is best friends with Trip’s boss at the tattoo parlor. She is sweet, beautiful, and

Trip is brothers with Mace and works at Needles Kiss with Scarlett. Teeny is best friends with Scarlett. I didn't think it could get any better and it did.

What makes an exceptional author???? For me it is the ability to suck a reader into the story and hold them in a death grip until the last page is turned. The ability to have your readers experience a wide range of emotions and reactions to a story. The ability to have the reader invested in the story and feel like they want be friends / family / lovers with the characters.... Is that las

Ms Lola Stark surpassed herself with this one... From page one I was immersed into Teeny and Trip's lives.. Trip is a cocky bastard but he can be sweet and sensitive too. He totally stole my heart, sorry to break it to you Mace but you no longer hold the #1 spot?
This story gave me everything I wanted, I laughed out loud numerous times and cried a couple of times too. A brilliant sequel to Tattered Love. I look forward to read more of Needles

GREAT follow up to Tattered Love. I had stitches in my side from laughing so hard. Lola can write hilarious scenes(pool scene especially) as well as steamy sex scenes all in between a great plot of a story.
Trip and Teeny were great secondary characters in Tattered Love and were the primary characters in Conflicted Love and they didn't disappoint.
Highly recommend this series "Needle's Kiss" if you enjoy hot sex scenes and enjoy a good few laughs while reading!!
