Hayden owns Inked Armor, the tattoo studio across the street from his aunt’s antique store. Between clients, he drops in to see his aunt, and that’s when he catches his first glimpse of the timid but gorgeous girl now working there. His curiosity piqued, he wants to talk to her, but it seems that every time he drops in, she’s hiding from him.
I suppose it’s supposed to be a tease, a quick little novella before the big story comes out, and in that sense, Cupcakes and Ink does exactly what it’s supposed to do. But that doesn’t mean I have to like it. It’s been ages since CW&IA was pulled from fanfiction sites, and I’m dying to see what happens now that it’s been reworked for publishing. So I’m not all kinds of happy that I only got a teensy little peek.
For what it is, a brief glimpse of what’s to come, it’s fantastic. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to get into the story after so long, but already I want more — all of it, to be specific. In transitioning to published fiction, the story hasn’t lost its appeal. The sexual tension is building already, in just a couple of short chapters, and the mood has definitely been set. The writing so far is superb, and it’s clear that at least this part of the story has been freshly redone, still loyal to the characters and the story, but with something different, something more, and I can’t wait to see how it all plays out.
Tenley just moved to Chicago to start grad school, and Hayden owns a tattoo shop. He’s into ink and steel, and Tenley is a bit of a mystery. Tenley is living in an apartment above a bookshop/antique store that is attached to a coffee shop. Hayden’s tattoo shop is across the street. Eventually she starts helping, and then working for her landlord, Cassie, who owns/runs the shop downstairs. Cassie, as it turns out, is Hayden’s aunt. He stops by to see her often and to grab coffee from the adjoining shop. The attraction is there for both sides, but that’s all we really see in this novella/prequel.
It was just a taste, and maybe the snippet at the end was what really whetted my appetite. Either way I definitely want to start Clipped Wings ASAP. I’m not sure if the prequel is really needed, but 99 cents is cheap enough.
Book #2-Inked Armor, is coming out in a couple of weeks. Another 99 cent novella, #2.5-Cracks in the Armor, featuring another partner in Hayden’s tattoo shop, Chris, comes out in June.
Apparently we’re left with a bit of a cliffhanger at the end of Clipped Wings, so I’m glad book 2 is coming soon!
I am eager to read the next book, but will have to wait as the current price is a little hefty compared to others out there. I have a few books in my archives waiting to be read so I can finish them while the price drops from the 7.60 price tag.
Both have been through tragic, unexpected loss that has them both yearning, unknowingly for love and peace in their lives.
They quietly watch each other, fantasize about each other.
I love the author's writing style purchased Clipped Wings and Inked Armor when I got this novella.
This story is unlike any other I have read and I am excited find out where the story goes.
More 5 star accolades to Helena's series and to this little novella!
Tenley is a quiet and shy girl and just moved to a new apartment. She lives above a store and recently got a job there. She is intrigued by the owner of the Tattoo Parlor across the street.
Hayden co-owns the shop with some friends. He is interested in Tenley but she is extremely shy.
Can't wait to find out what happens next.
