YAY ! Finally this month :D ! --- 1.5 stars

^^ So This was me when I found out that this book will finally be released because the way the last book ended made me want to jump right into this one and now after reading it , I'm IN SHOCK ! and not the good kind of shock.

The fact is I really enjoyed the last two books , granted I read them in a time when I gave away 5 stars left and right :D But I still really liked them , they were fun , sexy and romantic. So I was actually about to start readi

In the final installment of the Needle’s Kiss series we get Haven & Jude’s story. Haven, if you don’t recall is Mace & Trip’s baby sister, while Jude is their longtime friend – a friend who should know that little Haven is strictly off limits.

When Haven finds herself at her lowest, one man swoops in to rescue her. One man she isn’t allowed to have, but one she can’t help but love. A relationship kept secret is blown sky high and poor Haven finds herself left behind as Jude ch

OMG this book. I cannot express what this book did to me. First of all if you have not read the first two books of Needles Kiss...well why not? Stop what you are doing and buy them. THEN come back here so I can tell you why it will be a no brained to buy Forbidden Love. Did that? Ok, let's proceed.

I was so ready for this book. Well, I thought I was. I had planned to highlight the crap outta it specifically for quotes for this blog post. Um, yeah I can't do that. Not really, not like

Ooh!! Haven and Jude's story!! I can't wait for this!!

Review to come...but I need you to know...READ THIS BOOK!


You know when you read a book and you just get it? You can relate to every person on some level at any given time? That is how this book was for me. I felt embedded in these characters' lives, I wanted to relish in their pain, joy, love, hope and sorrow.

Lola Stark did that for me with this book. She pushed the envelope with showing the other sides of a relationship. Sure, we all love the sassy, snarky comebacks, the funny

Wow what a way to end a series! #UglyCryAllOver

I have to say i don't really get overly emotional usually when reading but this book is the closest i have ever come to sobbing!

I expected Dylan to be some sort of douche if i am honest!

After reading both Mace and Trips books i was glad it wasn't a "me caveman, you my woman" and the girl being dragged by her hair to his lair kinda story.

I'm just gonna start off by saying, YOU SUCK LOLA! But in a GOOD way. I ugly cried for more than half this book. You completely out did yourself and made the last book the BEST book in this series. Now with my review ;)

After the second book, Conflicted Love, you find out about Jude and Haven. What I expected was gonna happen in this book and what actually did happen were two different things. I was officially MIND FUCKED. I was pissed at Jude for the first half of the book. I rooted

OMG this was just surprising! In every other book I've read there is always someone I hate but here Lola won't let me hate!! I felt so torn and I loved it! Feeling like I'm betraying Jude for enjoying scenes that don't include his happiness. Also feeling deep sadness because is not just about a couples feelings but also the family around them. Looking at it from the hurt of others that just got caught up in the middle... I guess it was not a good idea to sneak a read on work hours just because I ...more

Whoa!!! Where do I begin...this book was not what I expected;the whole book had me cringing! I felt as if I was reading 2 books at once and I felt as if it was only Havens book and not Jude's!!! It was really unrealistic! The only parts I enjoyed reading were Jude's pov! Why even have Jude's character if she was with Dylan through the whole book?

Sweet baby Jesus, just finished reading Forbidden Love (Needle's kiss book 3) by Lola Stark and I swear, 50 something % in, till the very end had me crying my eyes out. There are stories that steal a piece of your heart and touch you so deeply that they stay with you forever,... yeah this is definitely one of those remarkable stories for me. Lola, you have rendered me into a giant mushy puddle of emotions, that I'm more than sure will take days, possibly weeks, for me to recover. I mean, there a ...more

I've thoroughly enjoyed every Needle's Kiss book. Lola has a way of telling stories that bring you into the world of her characters. She can make you laugh in a moment and feel a deep heartbreak in the next. It's apparent that she pours her heart and soul into her books. I won't pick a favorite of the series because each one stands different in my mind. Forbidden Love is no exception. As an adult, I know that life isn't always fun and laughter but if you can make it through the hardest of times, ...more

Wasn't expecting the story to go the way it did lots of tears were shed and we'll lots of tears. I chose to focus on Jude and the fact that the boy cant concentrate with his girl half naked, "I could still see her cute little a** in those boy shorts. "Hey, you mind throwing some clothes on?" I called out to her." I liked that Jude could still get nervous, "did she think it could be from anyone but me? I felt the need to clarify. “I saw this and knew it would be perfect for you.” I stammered thro ...more

I have read on Lola's web page that she doesn't have a release date as of now bc of some personal family issues she is having to deal with at this time. I wish her the best, and hope that she can get it taken care of and hopefully get this book out to all her fans . I know it is hard for all of us Avid readers to try and remember that these authors have a life on top of writing books with the characters that we fall in love with. But that hasn't stopped me frame stalking Amazon to see if it has ...more

I loved the first two books in Lola Stark’s Needle’s Kiss series, and I was anxiously anticipating Haven and Jude’s story because I knew there would be a lot of angst embedded into this forbidden love affair, but what I wasn’t ready for and what was hard to get past was Jude’s cowardice throughout most of the story and a third party entering the dynamics of Haven and Jude’s relationship and upending every aspect of their lives for a good portion of the text.

Some books have you so enamored before you even read them, you are literally on pins and needles waiting for them, that was the case with Forbidden Love, book three in the Needles Kiss series. I was desperate for this book, despite the time that had passed since reading Conflicted Love, the idea of diving into the lives of Jude and Haven excited me. These characters intrigued me, I wanted to know more about them, I wanted to climb inside their heads and live their stories.
And so because of this

My first review ever, goes to show how much I'm disappointed with this book.

For how long this took to be released there are a lot of editing issues. I usually over look that and keep reading but to be honest these issues were a bit too much. At one point in the book Jude is going to Haven's family bbq and Stark intended to put the family's last name as a way to describe who's bbq he was going to but instead she literally puts, < last name > family bbq. I just don't get it.

Forbidden Love proved to be an emotive roller coaster of a read. Following two of my favourite characters, it was so refreshing to discover something different for the finale of this amazing series. It would have been easy, if not predictable for the author to follow the same story structure which we found in the first two amazing books, so offering a deeper story, one with so much more realism and heartache was a bold move, one I celebrated with every word I inhaled.

15 months between releases!! Lola could you be stuffed writing this because of the lack of effort and dedication was let me see..... Pathetic!!! If you don't have it in you to write a decent book, don't shit on your readers and serve up a plate of shit sandwich because we went 15 months between servings, what's another couple of months!!! It would have been nice if the blurb mentioned Dylan - the guy who dominated 90% of the book. Thank God that sub par series has finished - even your lack of ef ...more

Lola gutted me with this one, all while piecing my heart back together, at the same time!!! Perfect ending for the Needle's Kiss series, and a poignant and beautiful story about Haven and Jude. Yes, this one is EXTREMELY different than the first two, but oh so perfect. You're gonna laugh, cry (huge ugly tears), and even wanna scream and throw your Kindle, but it's SO worth it. Lola, babe- 5 HUMONGOUS stars over here!!

I know Lola warned us that Forbidden Love was completely different from the first two, and she wasn't lying!! OMG!! What an emotional roller coaster she put me through. I haven't cried this much reading a book since Taking Chances. Lola I hope you come out with another series, because you are just an awesome writer!!

This book actually brought tears to my eyes ! I really felt for Jude and not just because of the relationship between him and haven but how her brothers were with him... I did feel the book was rushed but overall did enjoy it even though it was not what I expected .. I did enjoy the first two books a lot better ...

Maybe I can cole back to this but half way the couple I hoped for isn't even together yet. Too much stupid stuff was happening. Bummer. Because I was excited for this one

My shelves are based on the other man being the hero because to me this book reads like the hero (referred to in the blurb) is the other man.
I wish the true hero had lived.
