Cupcakes and Ink

Synopsis

Tenley Page is looking for a new start: a new city, a new apartment, a new life. Her plan is to keep to herself and stay focused. But leaving her past behind and starting over isn’t as easy as she thought. And neither is maintaining her solitude. As Tenley settles into her new surroundings, she finds herself drawn to Inked Armor, the tattoo studio across the street. But it’s the gorgeous, dark-haired tattoo artist who captures her interest. There’s something about his severe beauty that captivates her—and not just in her waking hours.

Covered in the ink he inscribes on other people’s skin, Hayden Stryker has made a career out of being a tattooist. He’s got his own business and a tight circle of friends. As far as he’s concerned, that’s all he needs. At least until his aunt, who owns the antiques and used book store across from his tattoo studio, hires a new employee. At first his intrigue is based on physical appeal; hot chick equals something nice to look at. But as he begins to catch glimpses of the fiery personality under the fragile, feminine exterior, his fascination with Tenley grows. Annoyed by his inability to control his fixation, Hayden decides the best way to cure him of the new obsession is to get to know the girl under her skittish façade.

But like the ink he wears as armor, Tenley has the ability to get under his skin and stay there.

Review

Cupcakes and Ink was the perfect little set up to introduce you to the world that Helena is creating. It establishes Hayden and Tenley (LOVE the names!), the two main characters, and a little about each of them. However in doing that, there is also a little mystery that really makes you want to continue reading to figure out their full stories. I loved that it was written in dual point of views, because it makes me hope that the rest of the series is also done that way, and it’s my favorite. It does sort of end abruptly, but it just makes me want to dive in to Clipped Wings!
