After finishing book one I had to start book two. And although I didn't know what to expect I have to say that book two really redeemed book one for me. Inked Armor was so much better! As Hayden is plagued by nightmares and Tenley is troubled by her bad decisions you really wonder if these two are going to get a break and be able to just have some peace.
Inked Armor was a lot more serious than book one, but it doesn't feel depressing at all. The author did a wonderful job balancing the dark and light as well as steamy and humors moments. Tenley's character grew so much in this book that she really has become a favorite. She made some bad choices, but she found her way through and came out stronger for it. I now can't wait for book three!
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.
