www

Way Back Wednesday is a Book Meme created by A Well Read Woman with the aim to write mini book reviews on books read in the past, that left a lasting impression.

What do you miss most in a novel that you’ve read from the past? Maybe a scene or two?

I think I miss the feeling of love and excitement when I read the book or certain scenes for the very first time.

Also, the impact that these stories have brought into my life.

Here are some of my all time favorites…

MUST READ and on Sale NOW!

My favorite series of 2014 was Clipped Wings by Helena Hunting, and if by chance you haven’t read it yet this is the perfect time to do so, because the first book is on sale right now for just 99 pennies!

Made with Repix (http://repix.it)

From her dark hair sweeping below her waist to her soft, sexy curves, Tenley Page intrigues tattoo artist Hayden Stryker in a way no one else ever has…especially when she asks him to ink a gorgeous, intricate design on her back. Yet for all her beauty, there is something darkly tragic and damaged about Tenley that Hayden is everything.

Covered in ink and steel, Hayden is everything Tenley has never dared to want, awakening a desire to explore more than the art adorning his stunning body.

Although he has secrets too, if they both keep themselves guarded perhaps their intense physical connection will remain only that.

But nothing, not even passion, can keep them safe from their pasts…

Book Summary

In this follow-up to Clipped Wings, the emotional love story continues between Hayden and Tenley; two young people who desperately want to love and be loved but are afraid to completely let go of their pasts.

In the wake of losing Tenley Page, tattooist Hayden Stryker’s tumultuous past is haunting him. Plagued by nightmares about the murder of his parents, Hayden reaches out again to Tenley. Having run from the man she doesn’t believe she deserves, Tenley finally lays her guilt to rest. Despite their intense physical attraction, Hayden and Tenley struggle to repair their fragile emotional connection. As Hayden gets closer to the truth, he must find a way to reconcile his guilt over his parents’ death in order to keep the woman who finally cracked his armor, and found her way into his heart.

 

If you can’t tell that we are HUGE fans of Helena Hunting’s books and Hayden Stryker, then you’ve been missing out, for sure!! Earlier this week, Elena and I decided to share our reviews for Inked Armor in one post, check that out here. Tamie shared her thoughts here, in an amazing review. Gel got inspired with an Illustrated Temptations post here

Music is a big part of my life, and certain books really effect me. I love when characters or a book will inspire me to put my music library on while reading or just stay with me after I’m done. Here are some songs that came to mind while reading or made me think of the book and characters when I wasn’t reading about them.
