Fractures in Ink; Clipped Wings (Series)
by Helena Hunting (Author)
This review is from: November 19,2016 By Kay Daniels (eReader)
Fractures in Ink is a contemporary, darker adult romance that is unlike her previous lighter sports comedy, Pucked. Fractures in Ink deals with poverty, multiple types of abuse, child neglect, drugs, and blackmail just to name a few and during all of these very real life events at the center of it all is a couple dealing with if they should even be a couple at all. Helena Hunting took a look at real life situations that unfortunately are commonplace in our society. She didn’t give them an instant means to solve every problem with money and success but instead drove into the doubts and fears we all have regardless of status, age, or sex. Am I good enough to deserve the person sleeping by my side? Will my past hurt my future? This is the heart of what drove this story.
Chris Zelter knows Sarah is leagues above his normal type of woman. His poverty driven background isn’t exactly a fairy tale turned life, but he knows exactly who he is and where he came from, but Chris has come a long way from where he started. He knows deep down Sarah won’t stay forever especially when she begins chipping away at his past, but he would like to continue the façade for as long as she’ll have him.
Sarah Adamson was bound and determined not to be a carbon copy of her mother’s bad decisions. She’s working hard to finish her master’s degree at Northwestern to make that dream a reality, what she didn’t count on was meeting Chris. He is the opposite of every other man she’s ever met, but could he harm her chances of achieving the only thing she’s ever wanted?
Together they have to work on trusting each other which could cost the ultimate prize, their hearts.
Fractures in Ink is heartbreaking, frustrating, real, and devastating, yet at the heart of all this travesty is a beautiful love story. Chris and Sarah show us that everyone has fissures in their armor, don’t look at the surface value, everyone is going through something that you don’t know about. Who you turn to for help and who supports you when things go south is who becomes your family, blood isn’t important when it comes to love. How you handle a situation when everything seems at its worst and come out the other side is what makes you who you are. Who is still by your side when the worst is over says everything.
“We don’t choose our family, but we choose the people we love and let love us back.” – Chris
