Great collection with quirky, compelling characters and interesting plotting. I’ve read books by Weir before and loved them, so I’m not surprised that I fell into a book coma by the time I finished reading the entire set in one rainy day. Read!
Clipped Wings by Helena Hunting
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
Well, there were parts of this book that I really, really, liked. And others not-so-much. Hayden was done very well and he was definitely my favorite part of the book. There was a time or two where I thought he did or said something a little out of character, but overall I found him swoon-worthy and found myself longing to be under his (tattoo) gun. (insert eyebrow wiggle here)
Tenley, I didn’t like as much. I didn’t hate her, I just didn’t connect with her as much as I would have liked. I can’t put my finger on why that is, though. Perhaps it’s the way she reacts/handles her creepy Adviser or her over-bearing brother-in-law.
Together the couple is good, and I love how the tattoo/ deviant behavior/ pain-linked thing is worked into the story line. The other characters in the book are interesting and colorful, and the writing itself is superb. More than once I wished I was reading a dead-tree book so that I could circle a particularly good line or passage.
My biggest -thumbs-down-dislike was the ending. I mean…holy-cliffhanger. In all fairness, that wasn’t even a cliffhanger in the typical sense. There was no tying-up of issues, no warning whatsoever. I went to turn the page, only there were no more pages. It was like someone left off the last chapter (or several) and because of that the book didn’t feel complete at all. Usually, I don’t mind a cliff-hanger, but this one left a bad taste in my mouth.

Fix You is an intriguing start to a series, and I’m anxious to read the next book in line. I love the idea of a girl who starts the book as somewhat of a victim (even if she doesn’t fully realize it at the time)and takes steps to become a victim-no-more. Bonus points when the path to personal power involves a hunky fighter with a heart of gold.
The characters are interesting, the plot is well done and seems to have layers that are yet to be revealed, and the ending had me looking for book two as soon as I had a moment. Thumbs up!
