Clipped Wings (Clipped Wings #1) by Helena Hunting
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.
As Hayden and Tenley navigate their newfound but slightly unstable relationship, they want to trust each other, but Hayden is hiding a dark and shameful past that he doesn't ever want Tenley to find out about. And Tenley has secrets of her own that could make Hayden run away forever. When Tenley asks Hayden to put a beautifully elaborate tattoo across her back, the two form what they thought was an unshakeable bond. But when Tenley's past shows up on her doorstep, will Hayden stand by her side...or run?
5 out of 5 stars
This book was fantastic! Hayden and Tenley are just so messed up and broken and I loved watching them come together as the details of their past came to light. The pain of both their pasts was very emotional to read. Nothing was ever as I expected and it made it all that more appealing and intriguing. All the layers in this story and and the feelings it elicited from me was off the charts.
Tensely and Hayden have this unexplainable connection and chemistry. I adored the build up of their relationship. Watching them come out of their shells. I think they are extremely well written characters with lots of depth. I really enjoyed their playful moments and their heartfelt ones as well. There was a lot of build up and anticipation to the sexy times… them together was just WOW. They frustrated me sometimes because of their protective layers, other times my heart broke for them. They are just sweet and genuine characters.
There were plenty of other characters to keep it interesting, I enjoyed them all. I wasn’t a fan of those that were the villains but I thought they were great characters. I pretty much yelled at my Kindle any time Sienna or Trey was involved. They made me so tense!
This story is told from both Tenley and Hayden’s POVs. I thought this book was descriptive and had great imagery. There was a nice pace throughout and I was on the edge of my seat the majority of the time. As more of their stories unfolded, I was captivated. The end is a cliffhanger that will lead into the next story, it was not abrupt. I am really looking forward to the next story, Inked Armor.
I was filled with tension and anxiety while reading. I couldn't read fast enough, wanting all the details. I felt consumed by this story. I don't know if I can articulate how wonderful I thought this was. The depth it had, all of it. Just amazing. 5 stars.
