INKED ARMOR                                               HELENA HUNTING
Posted:  June 7, 2014

Inked Armor by Helena Hunting 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.

     Okay, I have to say this book redeems itself as far as the length of the book, the character background enlightenment, and current character detail to relationships.  Theirs as a couple and theirs in relationship to others.
     I enjoyed how Ms. Hunting chose to have them each handle their traumatic backgrounds.  How they chose to bring each other in to their recovery not always willingly but still never fully turning away from each other knowing down deep they loved each other without words being said.
     Yet, when the books starts off you can’t tell that at all and I don’t know that for sure I only know parts of that from the first book which I was not happy with at all.  But, she turns my opinion way around in this book and I have to say with this book I am a fan of her writing. 
     Tenley had gone back home to deal with what she had been running from for a year but it was time to put it to rest.  When her deceased fiancĂ©’s brother came to take her back and she told Hayden to give her that, it killed him.  She didn’t call him at all for 3 weeks he waited then he found out she was emailing and texting their friends and that pissed him off.  So, he calls her by the end of the talk he sounds distraught.
     Hearing his voice so manic and out of control and then calm abruptly then hanging up the next second.  Tenley got really worried and knew she needed to get home to him.  She knew he was dealing with his own demons from his parents murders and the nightmares could pull him under big time and she felt like she had pulled him part way under by not keeping in contact.  So she rushed through her business with not her own risk at stake for her to rush home to Hayden.
     There is so much more than the lite overview I have written about like the solving of Hayden’s parent’s murder and so much more.  Ms. Hunting’s flare for dramatic coupling of words to be able to visually see what is happening is interesting for us to be able to see.  I really enjoyed Inked Armor a great deal and I give it 5 stars.
