Chris and Sarah are back in this novella where Inked Armor leaves off. I’m so thankful that Helena added in a reappearance of Hayden. I love reading about Chris and Sarah. They have different hardships to Tenley and Hayden but they are just as relatable.
I love Helena’s style of writing. It’s fast paced, double packed with emotion and just the right about of sexiness and romance. I hope there’s more to come and this is not the end. Wonder if telling Helena that I’m going to hold my breath works as a threat? LOL.
This has been a great series. I’m so glad I came across it. The story is unique and the characters are so memorable. I know this will be a reread series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it... 1 July 2014

Loved this. Anything to do with Hayden, Tenley, Chris and Sarah is a winner in my books. I love the fact that we are now getting to know Chris and Sarah better This was a fantastic novella...each character is developing in unexpected ways and I cannot wait for more.
3.0 out of 5 stars more a vignette than a story 29 June 2014

Cracks in the Armor, Helena Hunting
ARC supplied via Netgalley
Well, I loved Cupcakes, Clipped Wings and Inked Armour so was looking forward to this. For me though it didn't really work. It's a kind of snippet in time, though I knew it was a short, a novella I thought it would be a story but its more an intro to Sarah and Chris. We learn a bit more about both of them, their background, where they currently work and why, and how they got together. We see a bit more of Hayden too ( and TK!) in his new home with Tenley although she's not actually in at the time but out with the other girls, while the lads have a boys night in..
It's an interesting read, but one I could have left alone easily. I love reading but really want a whole story, not just background info....if you're keen on knowing more about the characters though this is a nice intro to Chris and Sarah and I think they'll make a good book to read.
Stars: three – the writing style as ever is excellent – it's just I was expecting a story, and this is more like a quick vignette.

3.0 out of 5 stars Clipped Wings book 2.5 18 July 2014
By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I've really enjoyed reading this series but as much as I've loved Hayden and Tenley I've also become quite attached to the side characters so I was really excited to find out that Helena Hunting had written a short story about Chris and Sarah. We've seen their relationship starting to develop in the previous books but I was looking forward to getting to know them both better through this story.

Although I liked Cracks in the Armour I have to admit I was a little disappointed that so much of the focus was still on Hayden and Tenley. The first half of this short story (which is only around 60 pages long) is told from Chris's point of view but rather than focusing on his thoughts and feelings about Sarah he takes us on a guided tour of Hayden and Tenley's new house and talks about how the two of them are getting on now they're living together. Yes, it was nice to have a bit of an update on them but to be honest we didn't learn anything particularly new or exciting about them and I didn't pick up this story expecting an extended epilogue of Inked Armour.

We do get to learn a little more about Chris's background but not in as much detail as I was hoping for. When the point of view switches to Sarah the focus does move away from Hayden and Tenley which I appreciated but we don't get to see Sarah and Chris's HEA which was disappointing. This story actually reads more like a prequel so I can only assume that Helena Hunting is planning on writing a full length novel about Chris and Sarah. I have no confirmation of that at the moment though so I can't help feeling a little cheated. I hate to say it but I think you can easily skip this story and I'm not convinced it's worth paying for. I received this for free from the publisher for review but I'd have been very disappointed if I'd paid for it. If the author does decide to write a novel about Chris and Sarah then I'll probably read it but I'm beginning to think that I'm done with this world now and I'm not convinced there is much story left to tell.
4.0 out of 5 stars Hoping for more 29 September 2014

I realize that all the novellas in this series is based on Sarah and Chris and it's probably because Tenley and Hayden's story have concluded but I am now interested in these two, especially after reading that novella.

I love how it's not insta love and they still have issues to work through even though they really are on the same page. It reminds me of every day life and the uncertainty we carry in relationships.

I am still not fully knowledgeable about either characters past but I assume we will be getting a full length novel some time soon? If not, then I guess this is a waste.

Chris seems to always be seeking approval, so I would really love to know why and Sarah is independent but dependent. They both seem to clash on paper but they seem so right together. They understand each other though they are uncertain where each other priorities lie.

I might not know much about their background but what I do know is that Chris is a sweetheart and Sarah is really a softy under all that armour. They are the perfect oxymoron and I really hope we'll get more on them, because though this was nice, sweet and to the point, it's too short to make a full assessment.
