Cupcakes and Ink (Clipped Wings #0.5) by Helena Hunting

Title: Cupcakes and Ink
Author: Helena Hunting
Series: Clipped Wings #0.5
Release Date: February 3, 2014 

Tenley Page is looking for a new start: a new city, a new apartment, a new life. Her plan is to keep to herself and stay focused. But leaving her past behind and starting over isn’t as easy as she thought. And neither is maintaining her solitude. As Tenley settles into her new surroundings, she finds herself drawn to Inked Armor, the tattoo studio across the street. But it’s the gorgeous, dark-haired tattoo artist who captures her interest. There’s something about his severe beauty that captivates her—and not just in her waking hours.

Covered in the ink he inscribes on other people’s skin, Hayden Stryker has made a career out of being a tattooist. He’s got his own business and a tight circle of friends. As far as he’s concerned, that’s all he needs. At least until his aunt, who owns the antiques and used book store across from his tattoo studio, hires a new employee. At first his intrigue is based on physical appeal; hot chick equals something nice to look at. But as he begins to catch glimpses of the fiery personality under the fragile, feminine exterior, his fascination with Tenley grows. Annoyed by his inability to control his fixation, Hayden decides the best way to cure him of the new obsession is to get to know the girl under her skittish façade.

But like the ink he wears as armor, Tenley has the ability to get under his skin and stay there.

Four Stars

Cupcakes and Ink is a short prequel to Clipped Wings. My immediate impression is that the synopsis pretty much says it all.  This does give a nice introduction to the main characters in this series. It provides personal observations and insights of what Tenley and Hayden thought of each other before they are even formally introduced, which is really adorable. Helena Hunting's writing has a certain flair for capturing your attention right away. There is something deep going on beneath the surface for both Tenley and Hayden. I definitely got the feeling that the sexual chemistry in this series will be absolutely frustrating and very delicious (*smirks*)...thank you, Hayden!

Seriously, if you like captivating romances with tatted, pierced, and tortured characters, the Clipped Wings series is perfect for you! Cupcakes and Ink will leave you very, very curious!
