Book Description

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Paid too much for drivel January 5, 2014
By Bellz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
THIS review CONTAINS SPOILERS!!!! I didn't like this book much. I know this is a work of fiction, but I would think that even in a fictional world, a mother who is getting high and drunk while her two yr old daughter is drowning in their pool, would held accountable for her negligence, and at the very least, wind up in a mandated rehabilitation facility or mental ward, if not in jail!!!! Instead the hero continues to gives her money because she asks him for it and he feels he owes her? The woman killed his baby girl, he found her in the pool! Why would you not have her thrown in jail?? Anyway, the writing was stilted, didn't flow, the h was pissed at H for no apparent reason throughout 99% of the book, but gets over it as soon as he takes his shirt off . The romance was rushed, the drama was stupid, and consisted of his ex wife stalking the h and vandalizing her property and then trying to shoot her... Now everyone knew it was the ex doing all this, and yet no one, including the cops, can find her to stop her before the shooting? Not even the H, who was special ops in the Army, trained to handle extreme situations, can find her, although given the only effort he put into the search was calling her cellphone to tell her to stop and getting frustrated when she didn't pick up, I can understand why his search proved fruitless. This book was just ridiculous, don't waste your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bad Ass..Tattered Love September 9, 2013
By Stace
Format:Kindle Edition
I won a free arc by the author for my honest review......
Honestly I was amazed and blown away. Lola Stark is a very talented author and told a great story. YES! There is a story line that will make your heart melt.
The characters are very likeable and if you get as involved as I did in the story, they are also very lickable! Scarlett and Mace are my EPIC couple of the year. Their intensity is HOT and I guarantee that you will wish it was you instead of Scarlett that Mace is touching physically and emotionally.
Scarlett is my favorite female heroine and I have no doubt that she would have your back. Watch out boys, she is a HOT Badass Chick! She reminds me a little of Kat Von Drachenberg from LA Ink...she is a tattoo artist that is sexy as all hell and listen up boys...she loves HOT Cars and HOT Men!!
Mace is my favorite male hero and the epitome of HOT & SEXY! He is a Bad boy with Tattoo's but will also dive deep into your soul. When he wants something he does not give up and he isn't going to be a douche about it. He fights for what he wants....& boy do I wish it was me!
Wow, what else can I say about this book except that it was AMAZING, HOT, SEXY, EMOTIONAL, FUNNY as HELL and definitely LOVEABLE! Just like the Author Lola Stark. What an amazing Chick! I am excited to see what this adorable author comes up with next! Watch out for her, she is on track for a best seller! Please put this on your TBR list - You will not be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 million stars!!! September 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Advance copy provided by author for honest review and I am so lucky!!

What can I say??? This is an amazing 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. I devoured this book. I couldn't stop reading once I started. For me that is the testament of a freaking great book! If I can't stop reading ...its a favorite from that point on. There were times I laughed so hard that I couldn't breathe and then times where my heart broke and I only wanted to crawl inside the book and be apart of this tight knit group.
Scarlett was tough, crazy, beautiful and scared, broken and distrustful.
Mace was
Sexy, arrogant, confidant with a protective and possessive side that is hot as hell. He's got pain in the past that he's afraid to share.
Together they heal each other and find what they both have been missing for so long.
***Explicit scenes and they were awesome!***


Two souls with pasts filled with hurt and pain stumble upon the wildest of love. The calm in their storm. Tattered and broken..but together they are whole.

5.0 out of 5 stars TL is a HOT 5 STAR fantastic read! September 4, 2013
By HollyHo
Tattered Love is a great book!! This book brought me out of my book slump. I laughed, cried, got angry and was very hot & bothered. Both lead characters, Mace & Scarlett, were very strong likable characters as well as the secondary characters.
Mace is one hot sex on a stick! Tattooed ex-Special Ops with a broken heart finds love and reawakens to life. He is dominating, loyal and a protector. Scarlett is one tough gal & can take care of herself. She owns "Needles Kiss" a tattoo parlor and is a fiercely loyal friend to her best friend, Teeny. Mace walks into her shop to see his brother Trip, who works there & see's Scar for the first time & the story starts. As the walls around both Mace & Scar's hearts start to come down, love & happiness come together.
This book had everything in it, angst, sadness, friendship, some suspense, hot sex scenes and humor. I laughed several times at all the clever "cheesy" scenes the author wrote. It is very well written & a fantastic debut novel! If you like strong tattooed sexy alpha male characters & strong female characters, then this is a must read.

Pretty lame in all areas of consideration. Has the vocabulary and writing style of a high school student. Predictable plot.

More About the Author

What to say ? Errrr...
Lola hates all things sultanas.
Lola is a little strange and unusual.
Lola has no brain-to-mouth filter
(this may or may not have gotten Lola into trouble - repeatedly).
Lola is keeping Coca-cola in business one 2lt bottle at a time.

Apparently, Lola likes to talk in the third person about herself.

This here is what my profile says everywhere: Lola Stark lives in Australia, Is an at-home mummy with no filter, raising a hoard of minions. Lola has loved to read for as long as she can remember. When not wrangling the children, she can be found sitting at her computer, writing, facebooking or just generally messing around. I know, I know third person again.

So what else can I tell you about me ? I have a dog, 3 birds and a pet rock. I was a teen mum (DON'T DO IT). Right now, I'm alternating writing this and yelling at my kids to stop jumping on the bed and to go the f*ck to sleep before I push them off. I may be a little... okay very, inappropriate...often. Junk food and I have an understanding: I eat it, it hibernates around my ass and thighs. I live and breathe music, almost any kind is fine by me. I cuss like a sailor and sometimes smell like one too (hey now, McJudgy, you can't shower, brush your teeth or hair if you're in the middle of writing a book). I make a mean potato-layer bake and I have slight road rage. I struggle not to laugh when my kids are inappropriate and say screwy sh*t. I don't really like people...I'm that creepy chick who sits in the corner till she has a booze buzz going on, then I'm as loud as f*ck. I have an addiction to shoes. I smoke like a chimney. So that's me! I'm screwy and funsized (it's not called short anymore). You'll either love me or hate me, but I am always just ME!
