Cracks in the Armor

Cracks in the Armor (Clipped Wings #2.5)

by Helena Hunting



Chris, a sexy tattoo artist, tries to win the heart of Sarah, a grad student with little interest in him, in this second e-short and follow-up to Helena Hunting’s gripping love story, Clipped Wings—“twisted, dark, incredibly erotic…a love story like no other” (USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton).

Part owner of the Chicago tattoo shop Inked Armor, Chris Zelter is a talented artist who decorates skin with gorgeous designs. He might look the part of the typical jacked-up, inked-up bad-boy, but underneath is a fiercely loyal, complicated man. Kicked out at sixteen, Chris has had to fend for himself for the last twelve years, making his Inked Armor crew as much family as they are business partners. For him, it’s enough—until he meets Sarah Adamson.

A grad student waitressing at the local strip club, Sarah is used to propositions and crude comments. The job is a means to an end—finish her MBA, pay off the tuition loans, and get a good job. Then she won’t have to rely on anyone to take care of her. So when brawny, tatted up Chris begins hanging out at the club, she rebuffs his advances. At first. But Chris isn’t like her usual clientele: despite his hard exterior, he’s almost…sweet.

Sometimes, the people with the roughest edges have the biggest hearts.



3 out of 5 stars

I enjoyed this novella, it was a nice, quick read. I thought it was a good edition to the series. I love Chris and Sarah together so much and there was a sweet moment mixed with a nice amount of heat. I wish there would have been more progression in their relationship but they both seem to have issues opening up.

This story is told from both theirs POV’s. We learn a little about each of their pasts and get a good sense about how they feel about one another. Sarah recounting things about Chris makes you know just what a sweet and great guy he is. There's a nice update about Tenley and Hayden that I really enjoyed as well.

Chris and Sarah are such great characters but I was left wanting more. Maybe it's because I’m desperate for them to have their happily ever after. This felt like an nice introduction to their own story and I hope they get one! I would love that. 

The Clipped Wings series is a favorite, I love it so much and can't wait to see where it goes next!
