 In this follow-up to Clipped Wings, the emotional love story continues between Hayden and Tenley; two young people who desperately want to love and be loved but are afraid to completely let go of their pasts.

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.

Inked Armor is the second book in the Clipped Wings series and just like the first book I loved reading this one. It's actually the conclusion to the duo. Though there is another book in the series. Which I'll be reviewing later on this week.

The plot of this story and characters were both a large part of why I loved this story so much. The characters are so easy to root for and you just want them to finally work things out. You get to see more of Tenley's past in this book and I really enjoyed that part. Yes there is a bad guy and one that I wanted to punch in his face a few times, but that just made this book even better than the first.

The writing style that author Helena Hunting writes in is perfection. A fast and easy read that will have you laughing and crying all the way through. Best thing about this book is that I didn't want it to end. I want more of this cast of characters!  Really enjoyed the dynamic between all the friends and family throughout this whole series. Everyone is so different with crazy pasts and that just draws you in even more as a reader. Again I really connected with Tenley in this book, just as much, if not more than I did in the first. Her past is crazy and full of so much sorrow, but I'm so happy with what happened in this book to get her through it. She's so much stronger than she thought in the beginning.

All in all Inked Armor is a great book for someone who loved the first book in the series. It's not like most second book in a series, this one could carry it's own weight and did an amazing job doing so. I can't wait to read more from this author in the future and I know each book of her's will be amazing!

For Inked Armor I'm going to give it an Ali's Bookshelf...
