BY NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR HM WARD
Guilt ravages me, swallowing me whole. It steals my sleep and knots my stomach. I was the princess, the perfect Granz heiress, but no longer. That part of my life went up in flames, taking my future with it.
What remains is a shadow, a girl with no future and a terrible secret. There’s only one soul who knows the extent of my sins, and I can’t shake his beautiful face from my mind. The memories of being near him that night are charged. They linger, but going after Pete is like trying to catch smoke in my hand.
The pull toward this sexy man is unreal, and that’s what I keep telling myself—the Pete Ferro I saw that night doesn’t exist. There is no poet, no philosopher, no artist. He’s a player and I’m his newest toy.
Genre: New Adult Romance
This story unfolds over multiple volumes
Length: Approx. 130 pgs
ASHLEY’S BOOK REVIEW: 4 Mystery Ferro Stars
Thanks to Holly Ward for the chance to read the ARC for Life before Damaged volume 2!
This was a great continuation of Life Before Damaged! Volume 2 focuses more on Gina’s character as a whole: the wealthy and materialistic lifestyle she was raised up in, the “princess” she is now, the internal stuggles she has with trying to find herself outside of her parents perfectly constructed world they brought her up in, the not so perfect relationship she has with her boyfriend (they have an interesting “relationship agreement”…do ppl actually write up “relationship agreements”? Apparently they did!), and much much more. She’s realizing that she isn’t just this uptight, pampered women. She is trying to be more independent and make her own mistakes. Unfortunately, the one mistake she made in Life Before Damaged volume 1 might come back to haunt her. Can she live with the consequences?
Peter Ferro is basically non-existent in this volume (except in Gina’s thoughts of course tehe) and shows up right at the end 😥 Sad panda! But with that being said, we needed this volume to learn more about Gina’s internal struggles and to learn why and how her and Peter ended up together in the first place. There’s clearly more to her than the “princess” her parents created. I can’t wait to see how their relationship unfolds!
Can’t wait for the next volume!!
