Fractures in Ink by Helena Hunting
Publication Date: November 14th, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Sometimes the things we shouldn’t want become exactly what we need . . .
Waitressing at a seedy strip club isn’t ideal, but it pays Sarah Adamson’s tuition. Her goal is to finish her master’s program and get a job that doesn’t involve tight skirts and groping hands. She doesn’t need distractions. Especially not the one that comes in the form of a hot-as-sin tattoo artist who works across the street from her apartment.
Kicked out at sixteen, and a high school dropout, Chris Zelter is familiar with wanting things he can’t have. His fractured life has never been easy. As the product of someone else’s bad decisions, he knows exactly what happens when the wrong person controls your marionette strings. Now an accomplished tattoo artist in a renowned studio in Chicago, Chris has it together.
Apart from his infatuation with Sarah. She’s way out of his league, and Chris knows it.
But he’s willing to be her bad decision. At least for now.
If you are faithful Helena Hunting fan and adored the Clipped Wings series, you have patiently been waiting for this one. We all wanted to know more about Chris and Sarah. These are two characters who have a hard time letting their walls down. They both have seen the worst life has to offer and have carefully constructed their walls as protection to get them through day to day life. The problem for these two is their relationship started as a physical hook up but as time passes, they slowly start developing deeper feelings for one another.
Chris was hard not to love…the man has the entire weight of the world on his shoulders or at least it feels that way for him. He is trying so hard to take care of a mother (who let’s be honest didn’t do right by him) and his sister (who he is watching go through the same hellish beginning he did) and at the same time figure out what is going on with Sarah who he has come to care for dearly.
Sarah is everything you want in a female lead. Strong, independent, resilient and is going to work harder than anyone else to achieve her goals. Sometimes I got a bit frustrated with her because I just wanted her to tell Chris or explain to him. Believe me, I get it. She tried to shield him from her problems because she could see his plate was full and she didn’t want to add to his problems.
Needless to say, it was angsty and hard to watch these two stumble around trying to find their way to each other but so worth it. It was also good to see all of our other favorite characters from Clipped Wings. This book was well worth the wait, Helena!
