    1. 3.5 stars“I don't want one night, I want all of them.” ClaraI’m Clara Lord. I own Bloodline’s Tattoo Parlor, have a filthy mouth , no filter, and a really strong objection to bossy idiots, pet names, and wealthy men. You will hate me, love me, or love to hate me, but either way, it doesn’t matter.

    2. 2.75 StarsI really tried to like this book but by the end I was This book is on the short side, it is 149 pages on my Nook and is a love triangle. The back and forth bothered me much more than Clara the main character's behavior did. She is definitely a hard main character to like. I’m pretty sarcastic myself, so that side of Clara didn’t bother me as much as her selfish behavior and rotten attitude. "I decided that I can’t please everyone so this week my only goal is to please me. I’m a [...]

    3. TUG OF WAR was sexy and hilarious. I totally loved author, K. Larsen’s writing style. Throughout the entire book, I was gasping for breath – one minute it was from the insanely hot chemistry the characters shared and the next minute it was from my outrageous fits of laughter. It was excellent entertainment and I didn’t want it to end!Clara is a total cougar . . .❝Cougars? Seriously, since when does thirty-two put you in cougar territory?” I chortle.“When the boys hitting on you are a [...]

    4. Pick up Tug of War when you have a lot of free time because once you're in it, Dominic and Sawyer will suck you into their fight for Clara until you don't know who to root for and therefore just need to have Clara decide for you but even she gets confused and goes back and forth and omg you just need to finish and have Clara choose once and for all. This has all you love from previous K. Larsen books and while Clara is a pain in the butt sometimes she totally reflects the badass, stubborn, full [...]

    5. ARC received from author in exchange for an honest review for SMI Bookclub.I will be the first to admit that I wasn’t sure that to think coming into this book. I read the blurb, and while it intrigued me, I wasn’t hooked. Whew…was I ever wrong! Imagine this. You are just sitting there, moseying along, minding your own business, then WHAM! Total book punch. Take all your expectations and throw them right out the window. Grab your preconceived notions and prepare to be rocked. This book had [...]

    6. 4/5 hearts***I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review***Honesty is the best policy right? or so I have been told repeatedly growing up so I am going to be completely and totally honest.Starting out I have never read any of the authors work. I chat with her on twitter and she's funny and she calls me a hoe and I am ok with that. Of course she had asked me to read her other books and like me I said suuure but then blog tours and life got in the way and I just couldn't. So I get an e [...]

    7. 'Everything turns to crap and its all my fault' Clara Lord is the owner of Bloodlines tattoo parlour. Straight away you meet this crazy lady. You will love her, hate her, want to punch her, shake her and cuddle her. Dominic Napoli is a relentless suit wearing, real estate mogul and absolutely gorgeous guy, who is intrigued by Clara. Sawyer is a hot looking bad boy who isn't really bad at all he's 6ft 2 with muscles tattoos and piercings, did I mention he's gorgeous too? Sawyer loves Clara and yo [...]

    8. I had the absolute pleasure of beta reading Tug of War, and would without doubt, recommend to other people!I was sucked into and hooked on the crazy live's of Clara, Dom and Sawyer from page one!Reading Tug of War literally had me all over the place! Going from laughing out loud, to crying, to having butterflies in my tummy, all within a few pages!Katie's writing is fantastic, and character development spot on!I went through Tug of War constantly changing my opinion of each of the three main cha [...]

    9. **KIM'S REVIEW***3.5 Stars*“You will hate me, love or love to hate me but either way it doesn’t matter. Everything I touch turns to crap and its all my fault.”Clara has been on the run from her horrible past for years. She’s trying to do what’s best to protect her and her daughter, Allie. She currently owns a tattoo parlor with her best friend, Sawyer, who also happens to live with her. Clara and Sawyer have a friends with benefits type deal. Even though Sawyer wants more but Clara jus [...]

    10. Reviewer: Jess (Magic Within the Pages)For those of you not familiar with my reviews I should let you know I HATE SPOILERS! I won't tell you much about a book because I'm a fan of going into books blind. I'll often avoid reading the blurb or I'll read the blurb, purchase the book, categorise it and then leave it in my library until I can't remember what it's about anymore. It's just way more fun for me that way and I highly recommend it!Tug of War by K. Larsen is the kind of book that will bring [...]

    11. We were given the chance to review this book, didn't know what was thrown at us but once we dive into the book, omg was great, just couldn't stop swimming deeper for more. We couldn't reach the shore until the end of the book. The beginning definitely captures you in and keeps your curious mind going.eps teasing you as you just want to find out if they get together or not. Feels like the Clara and Dominic are playing mind games with us as well as between them. Clara is hiding and running away fr [...]

    12. This was a recommended read from Book Bub and so I gave it a shot. I didn't care for it.The main character, Clara is unlikable. She is so clearly a user that it's hard to ever feel bad for her or root for her. The author tries to sell this by constantly having Clara let us know she is selfish and a bitch but she neglects to give us hints of underlying character traits that would give us some empathy for her. I get that her secrets are supposed to do that but I still never liked Clara.Dom also do [...]

    13. It's hard to truly live when you are lying to everyone, including yourself. Clara has to lie to save not only herself but her daughter. Clara thinks she is safe living far away from her old life and doing what she loves. Living with her best friend and business partner. Everything is happy, safe, and routineuntil Domini Napoli finds her in one of his clubs. That's when her life flipped and the real game of tug of war begins. This story really pulled at my heart so many times and in so many ways. [...]

    14. I received a free download of this book from Story Cartel, thank you!I enjoyed this book. I will admit that at first I thought, "Oh man, another 50 Shades/Bared to You knockoffridiculously rich guy pursues 'average' girl for crazy sexblah blah, been there done that." But since I wanted to follow through with my obligation to review the book in exchange for getting it free, I kept on reading. I was glad I did.Clara is far from naïve, and I both liked her and disliked her. I liked how she was str [...]

    15. This book is the easiest 5 stars I've given!! This story is about Clara a lost soul who needs healing and to find who she truly is. She has endured so much hurt and pain she doesn't know if she'll ever recover. She has an amazing daughter and a man that loves her but why is that not enough? In her life she is content but she feels like something is missing. When the hot rich Dom walks in her life wanting to fill that void. Clara doesn't have one but two men who adore her but that's still not eno [...]

    16. I was first attracted to this series by a review I saw on a later book in the series. Even though the blurb for this one didn't really "move" me, I thought I would try it.It moved too slow for my tastes and at times too fast. I didn't hate Clara, I found her childish and annoying. I nearly didn't finish at about 20%, but stuck with it. The book did improve slightly with a twist I didn't anticipate. However, the getting there was at times excruciating. I just couldn't connect with Clara at all. F [...]

    17. So I love K. Larsen. In the middle of reading this I voxed her and told her I Hated CLARA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hated her. You can tell its a good book when it elicits an emotion from you like that. This book was an awesome quick read and not your run of the mill romance. The main character is real and flawed, which I love. I mean we all do stupid things, so Then you hear her story and you feel bad for her, then you hope for her. I got an ARC because K. Larsen is the bomb and did this review beca [...]

    18. Not for me This just was not a read I enjoyed. The relationship between the hero and heroine felt forced from the beginning. They seemed to be crazy about one another but knew little of each other. The cliche like plot didn't help matters. This will not be a series I will recommend or continue.

    19. Great book. Great characters. Could definitely have been a little longer. Loved the character & plot development, but then seemed rushed at the end.

    20. Having read a few of K Larsen's books now I know I like the way she writes. Her books tend to draw me in and keep me capitative without trying hard at all. Tug of War was one of her earlier pieces so I knew it would probably be different to The Tutor and I was right, although there is still a dark element there.Its rare when I have issues with both of the characters in a book and still enjoy the story, but I did have that with Tug of War (Although it would not put me off reading more of the seri [...]

    21. Oh, I had such high hopes for this book - I absolutely loved the intro before Chapter 1:I'm Clara Lord. I own Bloodlines Tattoo Parlor, have a filthy mouth, no filter, and a really strong objection to bossy idiots, pet names and wealthy men. You will hate me, love me or love to hate me but either way it doesn't matter. Everything I touch turns to crap and it's all my own fault.Doesn't she sound fun? Tough, insightful, and pessimistic, with an independent streak a mile wide. But that impression w [...]

    22. Took me a long time to read this book but I did it. I'm glad I did because I really enjoyed it. My first impressions were how I wanted to slap Clara with a hammer. "I'm a bitch, I'm a liar and I'm horribly selfish."You can say that again. This woman was so confused. I did feel bad for her once I learned the truth but it still gave her no right to make the choices that she did when it came to Sawyer and Dom. Oh yes, the Love Triangle. Caught between the man who's been her shelter and safe house a [...]

    23. "Tug of War" is an amazing out-of-the-norm story. If you're looking for an innocent girl, and an easy love story, this isn't it. This is real. It's not easy, it's heartbreaking sometimes, and everything falls into place at others. But it keeps you guessing until the very last second. Lets look at the characters:Clara, a doesn't take shit from no one, bad ass, opinionated chick, who has an interesting life, and a devastating secret, who I completely adore because in many ways she mirrors myself. [...]

    24. This is a contemporary-romantic-suspense book, first in the series The Bloodlines. It could be read as a stand alone, but I recommend the second book Objective and I will read the rest of the series when published. This does have some sexual scenes so I would say adults only. This book has so many twists and turns, you never know what will happen next, an exciting read for sure. I was caught up in so many emotions, it captured me from page one. I love stories about women with backbone, ones whom [...]

    25. K.Larsen knows how to write a story that will suck you in from the first few pages I am not kidding when I tell you, I started this book first thing in the morning and finished before I went to bed. I did not want to put this one down!!!There were points while reading this book, that I was screaming out loud "NOOO!' or "why?!?!?" And when no one answered me, I knew I had to finish reading is right away. I needed answers to my "noooos" and "whys". Make sure you have plenty of time to read this on [...]

    26. This and more reviews at The Book BarRating: Well/HouseHow much do I love this lady lead?  Clara is hysterical when you need it and an emotional mess to keep her 'human' and vulnerable.  Clara has secrets and wants to keep them that way. She thinks she knows what she wants, but never commits to it.“Trust me, when I woke up today, I had plans to be awesome, but shit happens,”. K. Larsen. Tug Of War (Kindle Location 1391). Clara's life has been on cruise control for the last couple years and [...]

    27. Ugh, have you ever read a love-triangle book and just wanted to shake the shit out of the heroine because she's picking the wrong guy? That was this book for me. I wanted to reach through my Kindle, grab Clara by the shoulders and shake her until she couldn't see straight, then I wanted to scream and yell and kick and scream that she's an idiot, a moron. She had everything she could ever want in a man, and she just shoved him to the side like yesterday's trash. Grr!!True to her word I loved Clar [...]
