Product description

Product 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 6 January 2014
By Bellz - Published on
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Been there, read that kind of story with a few big holes 8 January 2015
By Love a great book! - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
These two characters have more sex than can be thought possible if the h plans on walking without her legs being bowed every day. If you like that, go for it!

Spoilers: Several conflicts in this short story cause the H and h to have problems. One conflict is because Mace doesn't fess up to Scar about why he has to leave for a couple of days. Coincidentally she finds him in a restaurant with his ex that is an hour from their home town. The ex-girlfriend wanted to meet up to beg for money for a drug dealer, but why did he have to leave for a couple of days if it was only an hour away and it should have been a reasonably quick conversation that could have been had over the phone. The next conflict is Mace decides he can't be with Scar any more because he thinks he's protecting her from the crazy ex, but he doesn't go back to the crazy ex and crazy ex is still after Scar. She ends up vandalizing Scar's property and other horrific acts. They have it on video where the ex damaged Scar's car, but no follow up is made by the police so the crazy woman continues to walk the streets. Mace being special ops can't find her to stop her...after dialing her a few times on the phone. Why wouldn't he go to her home or town and track her down?

Another "huh?" moment is why is the ex not in jail or on probation for being a derelict mother and letting their little girl drown...yet again forces another conflict between Mace and Scar because he can't have a relationship with her because he's too messed up about his little girl dying. He blames himself for being away on duty knowing the mother was a druggie. In conclusion, I read this in about two hours because I skimmed most of my way through the book which tells you it wasn't interesting enough to read every word.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fiery, passionate and amazing! 10 September 2013
By BEX - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Reviewer: Bex
Rating: 5 out of 5 Fairies

Tattered Love is a truly fantastic debut novel from an author set to take the indie scene by storm. The formulation of the storyline from concept, to character creation, to plot development is beautifully executed. There was barely amount that I had the chance to gasp for air and recover, not only a result of the fast-perfect pace, but also by my unwillingness to put this engrossing read down. In some books, a fast pace can be an issue, but not in Tattered Love. The speed simply works. It adds to the unfolding drama and action, and as a result, successfully helps to deliver a hot-as-Hades contemporary romance.

We are introduced to the two main characters Scarlett and Mace. It's a challenge to pinpoint which character I had a crush on the most, both are superb three-dimensional characters who are fiery, passionate and flawed. That's part of the beauty of this book - how truly real the characters are in a world on paper. The author, Lola Stark, has an impressive eye for detail and is skilled in the art of character motivation and development; she brought her characters to life in a wholly believable way.

I laughed. I cried. I cringed and I whole heatedly fell in love with the author's style and world that she created. Tattered Love was a pleasure to read. I cannot wait until we venture further into this series and discover more about Lola Stark's remarkable characters.

What a waste of money. I am shocked at how many 5 star reviews this book received--and I'm convinced that those reviewers are either friends of the writer OR have never read anything worthwhile. Certainly no one with any kind of standards would give this more than two stars. I purchased this book because of the high reviews and the description sounded promising. Unfortunately for me, I waited to long to open the book. I was ready to return it five pages in (because of the grammar mistakes and typos), but I'd missed the deadline for a return and decided to suck it up. Aside from the ridiculous plot, the writing is terrible. For $3.99 (Amazon Kindle) I expect a well-told story with developed characters and fairly clean writing. This has none of those. Why charge that much when it's clear that she didn't pay for an editor??!! I am so tired of self-published writers thinking that they don't need to find a reliable editor before publishing--even the best writers use editors. I will not be buying anything else written by this writer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Loved ..... Mace is Perfect 12 September 2013
By Debbie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful story of finding that perfect other half that can fix you and love you and make everything perfect. Both Mace and Scarlett have suffered loss in their lives, but together they are able to heal each other. This book is written in both POVs which I love.

Mace is an ex special ops hot as hell man. From the moment he walks into Scarlett's tattoo shop and first sets eyes on her, he's head over heels for her. Scarlett, a sexed up feisty tattoo artist, sees Mace walk in her shop, and can do nothing but stare. She quickly discovers he's the big brother of Trip, one of the guys she has working for her, whose she's close friends with. These two start an almost immediate hot, lusty, sexy romance that will have you fanning your face. Dayym these two are hot. And be warned, when Mace opens his mouth to tell Scarlett what he wants and how he wants it..... well, let's just say he paints a pretty clear picture. Wow! Loved these two together.

There are a few bumps in the road, but this book reads fast, writing is good, and you will be unable to put it down. You'll enjoy all the characters and laugh right along with them. Jace's sons are too funny! The best friend Teeny is fun, and she and Trip's story is next. CANNOT WAIT! Awesome first book in a series. Anticipate great things from this author.
