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?
Clipped Wings begins when Tenley wants to try to move on from her past. She wants to find a way to help take the pain away, and Hayden is the guy for the job. Not only does he invoke a lot feelings from her she doesn't understand or want to have, but he is also a great tattoo artist.
Hayden can't get Tenley out of his head. He knows he has demons from his past, but he wants to have Tenley in his life no matter what. But when he realizes that her scars may be worse than him, things get even more complicated.
Clipped Wings started out very interesting. I really did like the book. I enjoyed the plot line, and I liked both of the main characters as well. Now, the side characters kind of got on my nerves. I felt like they weren't good influences on the main characters and that was annoying.
The only other thing I really didn't like about the book was the way it ended. It was beyond frustrating the way Tenley handled things and it made me like her a whole lot less. I'm not sure if I want to read more in this series, but this was an enjoyable emotional read!
