Damaged by H. M. Ward
A New Adult Romance Novel by New York Times Bestselling Author
Life sucks. And, as soon as Sidney picks up the pieces something always knocks her back onto her butt. It's never pretty, but this time is different. This time pretty isn't even the right word.
Peter is the personification of perfection. It's like he fell off his angel perch in purgatory, because let's face it--any guy that hot has got to be naughty. He was probably sent here to ruin her life.
Peter is beyond beautiful with his sexy blue eyes, dark hair, and toned body. Add in his charming wit and Peter is everything Sidney ever wanted in a man, but when things get hot and heavy Peter shows her the door. Sidney takes the walk of shame and leaves. It's the end of the worst blind date ever. Her life couldn't possibly reach higher levels of suckage, but it does.
The next morning everything comes crashing down. The insanely hot guy from last night, the one that saw her half naked, is teaching at the front of the class room.
4.5 out of 5 stars
This was a fantastic book! Loved the characters, they were so playful and fun, yet so intriguing. I thought this was a well written and well rounded story.
The two main characters, Peter and Sidney, had the best first meeting ever. I was totally giggling to myself as soon as I figured it out. They have great chemistry throughout and some seriously witty banter and flirting. From the get go I am drawn to them and want to know more about their stories. There’s a bit of sexual tension and it’s killing me, but in a good way. I love how everything grows and builds. It’s a wonderfully written story that pulls you in.
Towards the end of the story, everything is so intense. Finding out their stories and why they are the way they are is a real eye opener but seeing their connection is amazing. I thought the story wrapped up nicely without a major cliffhanger because they both realize their feelings fully and Sidney knows what she has to do to move forward. I was left with lots of questions however, but there is a book 2 in the series so I am sure they will get answered. I feel like the end laid the groundwork for the next book and I look forward to reading it.
I loved the chemistry between Sidney and Peter, such a great dynamic. Excellent read!
