Publisher's Summary

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.

A great continuation to the series

This picks up right where Clipped Wings Left off. I love Hayden and Tenley together. I love the depth to their relationship and their characters. I also enjoy the playful banter and the supporting characters. Their "family" was lovable and interesting. I would love to hear more about this couple but I have accept that the story is finished.

So happy that they kept the same narrators. Jason and Elizabeth have perfect voices for these characters and their delivery was fantastic.

A HEARTBREAKING BUT BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY

Tattooes, piercings and a handsome misjudged bad boy..... well we may have had to of waited for this sequel about two broken and complex people who found salvation, redemption and forgiveness in each other's arms...... but boy was it ever worth it. There was lots of everything - drama, misunderstandings, insecurities, grief, passion, tender touching scenes, desire, romance, scorching sex, heartache, humor, angst, revelations, character growth and sexual tension which all helped to develop a strong unbreakable love as Tenley and Hayden finally find their was back to each other despite the many pitfalls.

Apart from focussing on the very emotional love story, a 'nagging memory' and nightmares leads to new clues, heartbreaking discoveries and an arrest or two, or three in the murder case of Hayden's family. There was also all the usual loveable secondary characters from book 1 who were there to support Tenley and Hayden whenever or however needed.

As well as their all consuming, desperate and intense need for each other, there were very sad and tragic events intertwined too but they weren't too heavy to handle as the main focus was on the turmoil, feelings, sex and emotional needs within the couple's relationship as they built-up trust and faith in on-another again. Eventually, when the ink has dried on the last bit of the poignant tattoo, the two lovers, who have each known tragedy and loss, have finally healed each other and can move on to the deserved HEA that they both fought so hard for. No cliffhangers.

Worth a credit? A well-written, complex, all consuming, intense, captivating, emotional, sexy love story about the lives and devastating losses of two loveable characters and this, combined with book 1, is definitely creditworthy. Not a stand-alone listen tho.

better than expected

I was hesitant to listen to this one after I felt bk 1 was drawn out and I just wasn't sure I wanted to invest another 11 hrs. I was presently surprised. I still think it was drawn out but I feel the characters really grew.

I didn't want it to end...

This conclusion to the first book is still leaving me wanting more and not in a bad way... I just didn't want it to end!! I love these characters and wanted to hear the rest of their story! After everything that they've been through both separately and together I just never wanted it to end until the house was full of kids and the shop was being solicited for a reality show!! Lol Such a great story, and I look forward to more books by this author and the narrators!!

Near and Dear to My Heart

I loved this series. I've read it all the way through several times and listened to it on Audible. Helena does an amazing job of writing this story. I especially love Hayden who while dealing with the loss of his family also feels the need to set himself apart from others with his art and steel. This book really spoke to me in a way that most others do not. I got my first tattoo after reading it, and my second tattoo when I read it for a second time. The narration is spot on and allows the story to come to life.
