Their body art is hot. Their chemistry is even hotter.
From her dark hair sweeping below her waist to her soft, sexy curves, Tenley Page intrigues tattoo artist Hayden Stryker in a way no one else ever has... especially when she asks him to ink a gorgeous, intricate design on her back. Yet for all her beauty, there is something darkly tragic and damaged about Tenley that Hayden is everything.
Coverd in ink and steel, Hayden is everything Tenley has never dared to want, awakening a desire to explore more than the art adorning his stunning body. Trapped by a past that leaves her screaming from nightmares, Tenley sees Hayden as the perfect escape. Although he has secrets too, if they both keep themselves guarded perhaps their intense physical connection will remain only that.
But nothing, not even passion, can keep them safe from their past...
This is an emotional love story that follows the touch-and-go- relationship of Hayden and Tenley; two young people who desperately want to love and be loved but are afraid to completely let go of their pasts.
I give Helena Hunting a standing ovation!!!
My dream came true when I found out Clipped Wings was becoming a book, so I did the only thing I could think of at the moment... I screamed and jumped for joy like a crazy person. To say my hubby was not overjoyed with me acting a fool in public is a understatement. But he forgave me and you will understand that later. lol
This was a long time coming, since I was a huge fan of hers since Twilight FanFiction. No... you don't understand people, this story made me addicted to her writing along with a few others but Helena Hunting's writing is unforgettable, she sucked me into her writing vortex.
The chemistry her characters have is hot but the kind of hot that will leave you scorching for more, the sex scenes had me fanning my face with pure hottness and jumping my husbands bones more times than I can count! Hence why he easily forgave me for acting a fool.
Okay my little Saucy Peep's, let's get down to business...
Tenley Page is a young beautiful devastate broken girl, who's trying to survive each day with her memories of her horrific past, which she can't get away from.
I added Hayden Stryker to My List of Book Boyfriends because
he's is a lickable, sexy, pierced, tattoo, reformed badboy, and let's not forget his sweet tooth for cupcakes. *grins* He too has a dark past in which he hasn't completely healed from and still shoulders blame.
He is drawn to Tenley as she is to him but she seems to want to hold him at arms length, afraid of what he will think about her when her past comes to light. Once she gets a taste of Hayden, there's no going back for her, she can't seem to get enough of him, and Hayden wants more of her.
"I just want the pain to stop. You make it so much better... being with you makes it better,"
"For the first time in years, I wanted... something. Anything as long as it was real."
Hayden makes her forget all her pain even if it is temporary and not only that but when Tenley asks Hayden to put a beautifully elaborate tattoo across her back, he reluctantly agrees. He see's a flash of defiance and spunk in Tenley, and in turn she see's Hayden just as damage as herself and that helps her forget her loss for just a moment.
There were times I wish I could of shook the hell out of Hayden and Tenley to see what was in front of them but their anguish held them back.
The pace of the relationship in the beginning is good, not to fast or slow but when it picks up, it goes full steam head on. I don't want to give any spoilers away but there is drama besides their dark past.
Cliffie at the end!!!
Yes people, I will be the first to admit I threw a temper tantrum, my poor hubby was at the wrong place, wrong time. I threw my kindle at him and told him, "make your own damn food!" LoL
But don't worry, I apologized.
Helena Hunting you did a awesome job with Clipped Wings and I can't wait to get my hands on Ink Armor. I would recommend this book hands down to everyone!!!
I give Helena Hunting
