eARC BOOK REVIEW...Clipped Wings (Clipped Wings #1) by Helena Hunting

Title:  Clipped Wings (Clipped Wings #1
Author:  Helena Hunting
Publication Date: March 4th 2014 by Gallery Books (first published March 1st 2014)
Goodreads URL: HERE
Plot:   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?



Normally, I have a lot of hearsay when it comes to books I read but for some reason I am speechless when it comes to Clipped Wings . I am not saying that this is the best book I've ever read in my life. But there is definitely something about it that worked for me and made it poignant and a standout in my eyes.

Everything was nicely balanced and it kept the right amount of intrigue to keep readers engaged. I mean, there is suspense yet there isn't. You figure out these characters' motives and back stories relatively early and from there it's just a matter of time to see where the pieces lie after.

These characters, Hayden and Tenley, don't have just your typical clichéd tragic romance that you tend to see in a lot of books. No, they were much deeper and heartbreaking. How can you not be scarred from ordeals like that?

Anyways, over all, a nice balance of: love, secrets, dark pasts, tattoos and piercings, as well as cupcakes. And yes, I did mention tattoos, piercings, and cupcakes in one sentence! Hah!

Can't wait for the next book in the series, Inked Armor!!
