REVIEW

BOOK REVIEW: 5 INTENSE STARS

*Please be aware that this is a Dark Romance novel and deals with serious themes, including violence and murder*

This story is the first part in a series, each approx. 30-40k words in length.

One word… INTENSE!

OH.MY.GAWD! I went into Deviant not knowing what to expect. My book besties were bragging about “Zeth and Sloane this…Zeth and Sloane that”, so of course I had to read it…right? 😉 I was NOT DISAPPOINTED!

He wants me to beg…I’ll beg. He wants me to plead…I will.
“Zeth…”the words are like an omen, a bell tolling, sealing my fate.
“I want you. Just you. Please…make me yours.”

I found myself completely sucked into Sloane and Seth’s world and wondered what would happen next. I could not put this book down and am so thankful book 2 is out!

AUTHOR

Callie Hart is the author of the Deviant series. The first book, Deviant, titled after the series, was released in February 2014, and the following instalment, Fracture, is set to be released  on April 7 2014.

Callie has experienced many changes throughout her life, and gone through many ups and downs that have all worked towards shaping and moulding her into the person she is today: fun loving, active, social, and hard working. The only thing that has remained a constant throughout her life is writing. Creating characters who will tear your conscience in two is a favorite pastime of Callie’s. There are few real saints and sinners in her books; more often, the denizens of her stories are all very human. Broken, flawed, and always with the potential for redemption.

Despite the subject matter being markedly hot and heavy in comparison to the stories she wrote in elementary school, there will always be an element of fairytale to her work.

REVIEW

ASHLEY’S BOOK REVIEW: 5 MISTERY STARS

First and foremost, I’d like to thank H.M.Ward for this opportunity to do an ARC review 🙂

This is book 2 of 7 in the Secrets & Lies series and is 102 pages print length.

More secrets and lies develop as this story unfolds! This book leaves off exactly where book 1 left us. We have discovered that “Mystery man” is Nathan Smith and he is an artist…that is all we know about his story…there is still this aura of mystery around him. Kerry is starting to establish a friend base: Carter, Emily, Beth, Beth’s brothers, but can she trust any of them?

Then to make things even worse, she gets tricked into being the nude model for her art class. After missing her first day, the professor threatened to kick her out of class unless she did something for him. “…I made a big deal out of how I could do whatever he could dish out because I’m a serious artist. Being unable to handle nudity is a sign of immaturity in the art world.” So sucking up her pride, she agrees and arrives to the class early to set up. Surprise, surprise Nathan is there for the class! “Our eyes lock and I can’t look away. I’ve never felt such a magnetic pull toward another person before, ever.” But why is he there? Is it just a coincidence that he’s there or something more?

We are left with a major cliffhanger ending…. FERRO family enters the picture!! (if you have been a fan of H.M.Ward and have read her other books that relate to the Ferro family, then you know that this could mean only one thing…EVEN MORE SECRETS AND LIES!) Who is Nathan Smith…and what does he have to do with the Ferro family?

I’m giving this book 5 stars because there’s more depth to this installment and more secrets 😉

BOOK REVIEW: Secrets & Lies: The Ferro Family (Secrets & Lies #1) by H.M. Ward

18522956

SYNOPSIS

They say the best way to get over a broken heart is a random hook-up. So my new BFF is dragging me to a bar. All I have to do is wear a slutty dress, choose a dude, and do the deed, right? The thing is, this isn’t me. I’m the good girl — the one who has sex for love. But, since the love of my life is shacked up with someone else, I guess it’s time to move on.

One night, one time. That’s all. I’ll have a clean slate.

A guy with a sketch pad, sitting alone, catches my eye. I’m a sucker for the artistic type with dark hair and bright blue eyes. Soon we’re in his hotel room doing things I’ve never done. His smoldering body, perfectly toned with hot skin and a firm touch, has my mind reeling with the things to come. We’re both naked and glistening with sweat, breathless.

And then he darts, right before doing the deed, abandoning me in his room. He doesn’t return.

A week later I see him again, and realize that he wasn’t just a random guy. My heart clenches at the massive mistake, and I still don’t grasp the extent of it. I should have run and never looked back.

Type: Serial, 1 of 7

REVIEW

ASHLEY’S BOOK REVIEW: 4 STARS

First and foremore, I’d like to thank H.M.Ward for giving me the opportunity to do an ARC review! 🙂

This is book 1 of 7 in the Secrets & Lies series and is approximately 106 pages print length.

Kerry Hill’s life was on a downhill slide, until she met “Mystery Man” aka Nathan Smith. He was just supposed to be a rebound, one-night stand, get her mind off her ex. Then right when things are getting “hot and heavy” between them, the phone rings, he answers it and then leaves her laying on the bed in a “heep of need” tossing cash at her for a cab. Completely distraught, Kerry goes back to her dorm and tries to forget about the events of that night. She didn’t expect to ever see him again and told herself even if she did, she wasn’t going to give him the time of day. Of course, “fate” has something else in mind.

Who is Mystery Man and what does he want with Kerry?

This was an amusingly funny and charmingly cute book. Can’t wait to read the next one!
