Review & Giveaway- Tattered Love by Lola Stark

Before I start with this post, I would like to let it be known that I know Miss Lola personally and have done for a VERY VERY VERY long time. I would also like to say that I have put off reading this book for 2 years because I didn't want to risk not liking it then have to tell her that I didn't like it. But then I won a pb copy of it and didn't want it to just collect dust on the shelve. So as Lola would say, I put my big girl panties on and dove right in. Also know that I don't sugar coat things in my reviews and I'm certainly not going to start now just because I know this skank personally. I am also quite nervous because this is the very first review I have done for someone I know.

So enjoy, and make sure you enter the giveaway at the bottom.

Title- Tattered Love
Author- Lola Stark
Genre- Adult Fiction
Release Date- 9th of September 2013
Self Published


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?


**Big girl panties are on and tied up tight**

We meet Scarlett first. Tattoo shop owner, badass car-loving, stiletto addict, tough chick who has been shit on by men. Abandoned by her 'Mother' and left alone in the world by the only man who loved her as much as she loved him. Her deceased Father.

Mace. Strong willed and always get's what he wants. Not to mention gorgeous. Home from leaving the military with the world on his shoulders and more than enough burdens than one person should ever carry. But he's ready to settle down.

So when the two meet, it's safe so say the sexual tension is high and they butt heads at every turn but it doesn't help that they have different expectations of what they want from each other.

The storyline itself was pretty awesome. There was always something going on so I never found myself bored. Lola wasn't afraid to go into touchy subjects (especially ones that I know would have been hard for her to write about) and definitely wasn't afraid to let her sex crazed mind fill the pages. And fill the pages it did. Mace and Scarlett have a sex life that most would only dream about. Anywhere, anytime and a lot! But even though there was a lot of sex, there was also some very emotional scenes where Lola was able to create some depth to the story and characters.

The characters were a hoot and Lola's personality definitely shone through in all of them. She really put herself into this book, from the cussing, jokes, shoe addiction, personalities and even the tough times. You can't say she didn't give herself to this story. She even had me questioning her as to whether she had certain piercings in certain places. A friend has to ask these things.

Now to the nitty gritty that she knew was coming. Her writing style for me was easy to read and easy to follow and full of Lola sass. Totally enjoyable and funny. However, sometimes the dialog wasn't realistic for the conversation being had and there were a few times where I spotted grammar errors and words in wrong places (maybe she should have asked me to edit ;p). And I can't believe I am going to say this but maybe a little less lemons (only a little) and more character emotion building.

In other words, If you like sex crazed characters that have enough baggage to weigh down a 747 then you will love Tattered Love.
