Part owner of the Chicago tattoo shop Inked Armor, Chris Zelter is a talented artist who decorates skin with gorgeous designs. He might look the part of the typical jacked-up, inked-up bad-boy, but underneath is a fiercely loyal, complicated man. Kicked out at sixteen, Chris has had to fend for himself for the last twelve years, making his Inked Armor crew as much family as they are business partners. For him, it’s enough—until he meets Sarah Adamson.
A grad student waitressing at the local strip club, Sarah is used to propositions and crude comments. The job is a means to an end—finish her MBA, pay off the tuition loans, and get a good job. Then she won’t have to rely on anyone to take care of her. So when brawny, tatted up Chris begins hanging out at the club, she rebuffs his advances. At first. But Chris isn’t like her usual clientele: despite his hard exterior, he’s almost…sweet.
Sometimes, the people with the roughest edges have the biggest hearts.
I absolutely adore Helena Hunting's Clipped Wings series! I think Helena is a brilliant writer. I am so glad I discovered her books.
I was so excited that Chris and Sarah was finally getting there own story. I love all the character's in this series and hope that we get even more of them.
Cracks In The Armor is diffidently a tease. It's a very short novella that gives you just a taste of Chris and Sarah.
Although I love a short story, I almost feel like these novellas in these series are too short and is why as much as I absolutely love Helena and her writing I have to give the book in all only four stars intend of five. Which I promise absolutely kills me.
I really hope the publisher decides to start extended these novellas just a little bit.
Love you Helena can't wait until we get all of Chris and Sarah's story!
