Blog Tour ~ Clipped Wings by Helena Hunting Review & Promo

Welcome to our stop of the Clipped Wings Blog Tour!

Title: Clipped Wings
Author: Helena Hunting
Series: Clipped Wings #1
Release Date: March 4, 2014


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…

Five Stars


I am going to put the warning out there though, it has a cliffhanger! I didn't realize it and I was about in tears last night when there were no more pages to turn! Ya know when you tap your kindle and the page doesn't turn because you didn't realize you were at fucking 99%!! Yeah, that was me last night!!

Soooo, all of you that know me should know that the moment this book was recommended to me and I heard tattooed and pierced hero and heroine and hero owns a tattoo shop I was ALL OVER IT!!

Hayden & Tenley are the beautiful and broken and just perfect for each other. They are both carrying a mountain of misplaced guilt and find peace in each others arms. The attraction is undeniable! When Tenley asks Hayden to ink her pain in the form of a full back piece, he kind of reluctantly agrees. He would never let anyone else do her ink but he really wants to know her pain and try to help her heal. But Hayden has demons and pain of his own. IMO, they are way to into their secrets! I find myself holding my breath when one of them gives up a little info about their past and hurt they are holding onto.

Oh, and I have to mention Hayden's crazy love of cupcakes! I can almost see the crazy come into his eyes when he spies a delicious cupcake! I love that sweet part of this book as well! 

As a lover of ink myself, that was one of the things I liked about the way this story was written. The intensity of getting a large tattoo was given accurate descriptiveness. The intimacy of getting ink, the adrenaline high and the emotions that come out when you come down. It's beautiful and addictive!!

I was able to get my hot little hands on the prequel Cupcakes and Ink so I don't have to leave Hayden & Tenley just yet but I don't know how I'm gonna make it to May for the conclusion!

Cupcakes and Ink (Clipped Wings #0.5)

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.

In the wake of losing Tenley Page, tattooist Hayden Stryker's tumultuous past is haunting him. Plagued by nightmares about the murder of his parents, Hayden reaches out again to Tenley. Having run from the man she doesn't believe she deserves, Tenley finally lays her guilt to rest. Despite their intense physical attraction, Hayden and Tenley struggle to repair their fragile emotional connection. As Hayden gets closer to the truth, he must find a way to reconcile his guilt over his parents' death in order to keep the woman who finally cracked his armor, and found her way into his heart.
