Cupcakes and Ink ~Review

"The only think I like better than
Tenley's cupcakes with buttercream icings is
Tenley decorated with buttercream icing."

Back of Book: 
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 fa├žade.

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

I absolutely adored the Clipped Wings series, however. This wasn't my favorite book. It was fine, but I didn't feel like it added anything to the story. Really this isn't a necessary read. Clipped Wings, and Inked Armor, were fantastic and rank high on my top favs. But Cupcakes and Ink, doesn't make the cut. You can read this if you want. It was still really well written and had the characters that I loved, but it just wasn't the same.

But what can you expect from a .5 book. Why do authors do that anyway? Book 2.5, or 1.5. Why not just add the tiny book into the chapters of the actual book? That's just my opinion anyway. This was still a good book, despite not adding any new elements to the story.

It was still an entertaining read, but not my favorite out of the three.
