Clipped Wings

Clipped Wings (Clipped Wings #1) by Helena Hunting

 

synopsis_thumb2

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?

 

my-review_thumb1

5 out of 5 stars

This book was fantastic! Hayden and Tenley are just so messed up and broken and I loved watching them come together as the details of their past came to light. The pain of both their pasts was very emotional to read. Nothing was ever as I expected and it made it all that more appealing and intriguing. All the layers in this story and and the feelings it elicited from me was off the charts. 

Tensely and Hayden have this unexplainable connection and chemistry. I adored the build up of their relationship. Watching them come out of their shells. I think they are extremely well written characters with lots of depth. I really enjoyed their playful moments and their heartfelt ones as well. There was a lot of build up and anticipation to the sexy times… them together was just WOW. They frustrated me sometimes because of their protective layers, other times my heart broke for them. They are just sweet and genuine characters.

There were plenty of other characters to keep it interesting, I enjoyed them all. I wasn’t a fan of those that were the villains but I thought they were great characters. I pretty much yelled at my Kindle any time Sienna or Trey was involved. They made me so tense! 

This story is told from both Tenley and Hayden’s POVs. I thought this book was descriptive and had great imagery. There was a nice pace throughout and I was on the edge of my seat the majority of the time. As more of their stories unfolded, I was captivated. The end is a cliffhanger that will lead into the next story, it was not abrupt. I am really looking forward to the next story, Inked Armor.

I was filled with tension and anxiety while reading. I couldn't read fast enough, wanting all the details. I felt consumed by this story. I don't know if I can articulate how wonderful I thought this was. The depth it had, all of it. Just amazing. 5 stars.

Spotlight: Stars in Their Eyes by Lauren Blakely

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Surprise! The Caught Up in Love series is continuing! Bryan - as in Kat and Bryan - has a younger sister and she goes to college in Los Angeles. She has something in common with Kat - Jess also is a huge fan of the movies and she's putting herself through college as a celebrity photographer. I'm so excited that Lauren Blakely is bringing you more of these characters and introducing readers to the "west coast" side of the Caught Up in Love cast of characters and friends. Kat & Bryan will both appear in this story and you'll also get to meet Matthew Harrigan's brother who lives in LA (you know this if you read Far Too Tempting).

Stars in Their Eyes (Caught Up In Love #5)

by Lauren Blakely

Expected Publication Date: August 10, 2014

 

synopsis_thumb2

Celebrity photographer-in-training Jess Leighton desperately needs to crash the wedding of the year. Snapping just one pic of the A-list Hollywood couple tying the knot will pay her way through school, but with security tighter than the bride-to-be's corset, she'll  need more than her camera and smarts - she'll need help from her biggest rival, William Harrigan. Hot, motorcycle-riding Will is the last person Jess trusts, but he's her only ticket in. Good-looking, charming, and British, he's a triple threat. And he's got that sexy accent to boot. Soon, sparks are flying off-screen and in front of the cameras as they devise a plan to sneak into the ceremony. But when Jess' new celebrity client raises the stakes with a photo shoot of the maid-of-honor, she wonders if she's in over her head. Blackmail, botox, and the worst Breakfast Club remake in the world? It's all in a whirlwind week's work in Hollywood. The audience loves a happy ending, but in a town where everyone's acting and no one's playing on the same team, can Jess find her own ever after in time?

**STARS IN THEIR EYES is part of the New York Times & USA Today Bestselling CAUGHT UP IN LOVE series. It follows the sister of the hero in Caught Up In Us and can be read as a standalone, though you will likely enjoy the other books in the series.**

synopsis_thumb2

Mal Ericson, drummer for the world famous rock band Stage Dive, needs to clean up his image fast—at least for a little while. Having a good girl on his arm should do the job just fine. Mal doesn’t plan on this temporary fix becoming permanent, but he didn’t count on finding the one right girl. 

Anne Rollins never thought she’d ever meet the rock god who plastered her teenage bedroom walls—especially not under these circumstances. Anne has money problems. Big ones. But being paid to play the pretend girlfriend to a wild life-of-the-party drummer couldn’t end well. No matter how hot he is. Or could it?

Tame Me by J Kenner

Take Me (A Stark International Novella)

by J. Kenner

 

synopsis_thumb2

Aspiring actress Jamie Archer is on the run. From herself. From her wild child ways. From the screwed up life that she left behind in Los Angeles. And, most of all, from Ryan Hunter—the first man who has the potential to break through her defenses to see the dark fears and secrets she hides.

Stark International Security Chief Ryan Hunter knows only one thing for sure—he wants Jamie. Wants to hold her, make love to her, possess her, and claim her. Wants to do whatever it takes to make her his.

But after one night of bliss, Jamie bolts. And now it’s up to Ryan to not only bring her back, but to convince her that she’s running away from the best thing that ever happened to her--him.
