Summary from

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?
My review:

Tattered Love is the story of Scarlett, owner of Needle’s Kiss tattoo parlor and all around bad ass chick.  Scar has been burned in love way too many times, so she isn’t interested in a relationship or love.  Then Mace walks into her shop, and everything changes.

I loved Mace, but I wanted to punch him in the face a few times.  He bore a lot of guilt for things that weren’t in his control, and it was annoying and holding him back from living his life.  The chemistry between Scar and Mace was scorching – as were the sex scenes.

There was a bit of a sub plot with Teeny, Scar’s best friend (with a stupid name) and Trip, Scar’s business partner and Mace’s brother.  Teeny’s personality changes during the book, and it’s very obvious why to everyone but Scar, and it was a little disappointing.    Overall, the characters were likable, and the story was good.  I will read the next one for sure.
