    Story
    "Inked Armor will leave you wanting more"

    The second book in the "clipped wings" series is the continuation of Hayden and Tenley ' s love story. This book covers every emotion possible in a story, from anger, pain, love, fear, anguish, hope, loss, sadness, elation, longing and last but not least, humour. Although Hayden gives off the bad boy, tatted "pretty bad ass" guy, he is a real softee and has a heart of gold. Hayden and Tenley have both experienced tragic events in their past which leads both of them to the other and in each other they find the comfort and strength to face their past to be able to move forward together. This is an incredible story of love and hope and not giving up when life seems so dark and all consuming. Through tragedy Hayden and Tenley find beauty.
    I highly recommend this book and give it 5 stars.

    Retired evidently sounds better than disabled.. It's a knee thing. Bone on bone, baby. Not a good candidate for surgery (health issues)..

    Story
    "The Life and times of a tattoo artist, part 2"
    Where does Inked Armor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This duo will be revisited again and again. Wonderfully written story that moves along much faster than you want it to. I have purchased some clunker books, but these two are winners.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tenley was perhaps my favorite, as she hss been through so much and has remained true to.herself, even though much of the time shepaints herself not worthy of happiness.


    What about Elizabeth Louise and Jason Carpenter ’s performance did you like?

    I really enjoy books that are portrayed by a male and female. It makes the listener feel as though they are experiencing each character as a whole. They worked well together, although the male reader often struggled with voive inflections.I


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to the book in one sitting. Beginning as soon as I finished the first book.


    Any additional comments?

    As in many books these days the language is a bit street talk, and not pristine, nor are some of the choices they have made. Great story where two basket cases have come through hell and back, found each other, and you have to cheer them on.

    "Very Enjoyable!"
    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the first book so I purchased this one (couldn't wait for credits) and it was well worth the money. The book did have me on the edge of my seat the entire book just waiting for **spoiler alert** Trey to do something diabolical but nothing....I don't know if there will be a third book where he does attempt something or not, I was confused because he was so obsessed with Tensely and then to just let her go seemed a bit out of character. Other than that this was a fabulous read and I am sure I will read it again soon,

    "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.
