Clipped Wings by Helena Hunting Review

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.

Covered 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 pasts…

My Thoughts:
5/5 Stars

A beautiful story about opening your heart to love again.
Tenley Page has been through a tragic event that leaves her emerged in grief. Her body is marked with the proof and her mind is constantly reminded of the nightmare she lived. When Hayden Stryker takes an interest in her, she shies away and keeps him at arms length. Secrets are slowly revealed and when she asks him to tattoo her back an intimate bond forms between them. Guards are pushed down and true feelings are exposed.

Tenley was a great heroine in the story. She is beautiful, caring, and brave. Hayden is a sexy, tatted bad boy with a heart of gold. I just loved him. Together Tenley and Hayden are whirlwind of on again, off again emotions. They tugged on my heartstrings and made my pulse race.

While the storyline is the bad boy, damaged girl cliché... The Author took it to a whole new level. The plot consumed me and I felt as though I was walking in the characters shoes. When reliving the tragedy Tenley faced my stomach clenched and tears rolled down my cheek. It all felt so real & I loved that! The Author took tattoos and proved that they are pieces of artwork. With Tenley it was a way to hide the ugly with beautiful wings. A symbol of new beginnings.

Now the ending .... Left me like WTF? This can't be it.... I flipped a couple more pages and realized I needed book 2 ASAP. I couldn't believe that it ended that abruptly, but I love a good cliffhanger that sucks you in for more.

The writing was great! It was a page turner that left you begging for the next book.
Highly Recommend <3
