BOOK REVIEW: Secrets & Lies 2: The Ferro Family by H.M. Ward



Volume 2 in a new series by New York Times Bestselling author H.M. Ward

Rebound sex gone wrong, plus epically bad luck, lands me in a sticky spot–at the front of a classroom, naked, with the totally hot, totally forbidden Mr Sketch Pad. I’m not a model, but here I am feeling more drawn to him each second. Add in that sexy smile and I’m totally screwed.

Genre: New Adult Romance
This story unfolds over multiple volumes approx. 110 pgs each




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 😉
