I had received an ARC for LIFE BEFORE DAMAGED VOL. 4 for a review on the book. I have fallen in love..  with sexy poetic bad boy Pete Ferro,  a dark knight rescuing Gina whether she wants to be rescued or not.  Daddy's "Perfect Princes"  Gina Granz,  wanting to be taken seriously from her dad, the investors and her boyfriend Anthony when she takes over her dad's position at Granz Textiles.   I love the relationship between Pete and Gina, the bantering back and forth, the sexual chemistry and electricity that sparks between them standing to close to each other, brief touches between them and whispered breathes in one another's ear and  stolen glances or long gazes among them. The hot, sweaty chemistry on the dance floor at the Swing Dance Club,  it could be swing dance or the Tango take your pick it was "Dirty Dancing".  What H.M. Ward has taken us into the past with the LIFE BEFORE DAMAGED series and theirs to be 8-10 books in total and has reintroduced us to Peter, but now we meet "Pete Ferro" . I have always loved H.M. Ward's books and the Ferro Family, I love this series "LIFE BEFORE DAMAGED" . The first four volumes that are to be Gina Granz's journals, in the first journal Gina was seen as "uptight" a "sticky chick", she needed to take the rod out of her butt and to take a "chill pill" and relax.  Gina sees since the warehouse fire she has a second chance on life having had survived. She is fed up of being her boyfriend's "arm candy", her daddy's "perfect princess", and Pete Ferro's mind games. Wanting to confront her daddy reminding him that she is the "financer" of the company, the "number cruncher" and next in line to take over the company, she is important to the company and does have a role.  She is feeling rejected and second best with her boyfriend Anthony. Its always daddy's wishes and what daddy wants before her needs and what she wants from Anthony. Wanting to surprise Anthony and have him focus on Gina, and what she wants and needs.  Gina got her own surprise.                                 Trying to find solace Gina goes to the Swing dance club and finds comfort in Pete Ferro's  arms and maybe more, that's in the next book and "OOH ITS GOING TO BE GOOD"!!

I love Peter as much as the next girl, in fact he is my favorite Ferro. But I'm probably in a minority saying I'm not crazy about this series at all. I love the Peter from damaged and I would love to know why he changed his name and stopped being a bad boy but the books are too short and I'm not feeling any connection to Gina. Sorry just my opinion. I'll just wait patiently for the next Arrangment to get my Ferro fix.

***I received this ARC for an honest review*** What a story!! Gina and Pete's chemistry is so hot!! They have a passion that is so amazing. Gina is finally sick of pretending to be the perfect princess. All her thoughts and dreams are about Pete and what he can do her body. Gina is sick of being pushed aside by her father in the family business. The business she is supposed to take over. She is also getting tired of her own boyfriend not showing her the passion she is begging for. She figures she will drop in and surprise Anthony. Show him the passion she wants and not the perfect gentleman he always is with her. Only to her surprise, she finds him in a kinky sex position with someone else. Gina is devastated. Going to the only place she can to feel alive, she heads to the dance club. She needs to escape. She wants to feel wanted. All she feels is worthless and not one person wants her. She gets drunk and flirts with a frat boy. Only the man of her erotic sexy dreams takes her away from her frat boy. They proceed to dance and their dancing is like watching a sex scene. The two of them can't stop pushing the envelope and continue the flirting game. This was my favorite book of the series so far. Gina is finally starting to live her life how she wants. She now has more of a backbone and coming into her own. Pete is showing her a side that others don't see. It is so frustrating waiting for Pete and Gina to finally end up in bed together. The tension is so thick. If they are anything like Gina's dreams, it will definitely be an OMG and cold shower needed after. Can't wait for the next book in the series to come out.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. I'm sure the author knows by now that I don't sugar coat my reviews. I loved LBD 1, didn't care for LBD 2, thought LBD 3 was ok but I am so excited about LBD 4. I'm a reader who likes the characters to have substance. Gina finally showed that again in this book. She was headstrong. She didn't let her dad push her around. She stood up for herself and she's getting noticed for it. Pete Ferro was yummy, as always, and I'm DYING to know his motivation. There's still something we don't know as it relates to him. Anthony was revealed for the rat he truly is. I hope that we continue to see more of the strong Gina and she doesn't let that little weasel back into her life. Truly, this is the kind of book I like and expect from H.M. Ward. It's such a guilty little pleasure for me. I can't wait to read what happens next. Keep up the good work, Holly!

Holly has given Gina her wings and she's finally flying. This incredible woman is taking steps to break the mold her family has created for her. Pete is a constant burn of desire that Gina dreams about and this installment is filled with sexy innuendos and funny sayings. It's another must read!

I received an Advanced Reader Copy of Life Before Damaged Vol. 4. Lets just say that this is yet again another great installment of the Peter Ferro / Gina Granz saga. We have betrayal, mystery, and of course, drama. Mrs. Ferro is being brought in with her mysterious desire to help Gina. Peter seems to have a split personality with Gina. He is almost tender in private but plays the bad boy everyone thinks he is in public. Oh...... and Gina finds Anthony has a very BAD Kitty at his apartment. The twists keep coming, which keeps me hooked. Great read and I can't wait for the next one!

I received an Advanced Readers Copy  for my honest review, so here it is.  Gina wants to just be herself but nobody will let her, they all just keep telling her what to do, and who to be.  Gina' s boyfriend Anthony acts like he would rather spend his time with father, instead of her. Gina is trying so hard to be with Anthony but it seems like he's not interested, so Gina is going to spice things up. Peter keeps showing up and giving her mixed signals, Gina says she hates him but I don't believe it. Holly, you keep leaving us on the edge , waiting impatiently for the next installment. I love it because I have something to look forward to, will they out won't they get together in the next installment?  As always, you never disappoint, you give us exactly what we want. If you haven't read any of H.M. Ward's books, you should check her out.

I'm still disappointed that this series does not have Pete's pov. This one was kind of predictable about what was going to happen. I had my suspicions about what Anthony was doing and it was confirmed when she received a text that he couldn't make dinner Friday night. It is sad that she feels unwanted after she keeps getting rejected by everybody. The way her dad treats her and now Anthony. I'm curious to what direction this series is now going to go

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Pete…SWOON!!!!!!!!!! Although Pete was the first Ferro man in my life, he wasn’t my favorite...until the Life Before Damaged series! Now I can’t wait to read the next installment to learn more about how Pete became the romantic, poetic, dancing man! I love Sidney and wasn’t really interested in reading about Gina in the beginning, but I love watching Gina blossom into a confident and determined woman who is becoming the person SHE wants to be…all because of our beloved Pete! And I love to see how she changes him in return! I think this installment has to my favorite in the series, so far. So much going on and an ending that will have you screaming for Life Before Damaged 5!!!!!!!! Well done, Holly!!!!!

BEST BOOK SO FAR.....You won't be able to put it down until the very last word on the last page and then YOU WILL STILL WANT MORE! I love the Gina, Pete and Anthony story and how it is has many twists and turns as it is unfolding. CAUTION: You will LAUGH, CRY, & INCREASE YOUR HEARTRATE during reading this book and love EVERY MINUTE. Gina Granz has amazing determination and drive with everything she does, from the pink outfit and trenchcoat for her relationship, to exerting her female ways in her male dominated job, and swing dancing with her friends. H. M. Ward is truly a talented writer who seems to create a masterpiece EACH and EVERYTIME she writes a book. BRAVO... and PLEASE keep them coming! I can't wait for the next volume.

Awesome & amazing, heart-wrenching & humorous, and more of the hot and sexy Peter Ferro! I loved and enjoyed reading the Advanced Reading Copy of Life Before Damaged Vol. 4 by the phenomenally, talented H.M. Ward who has written another extraordinary sequel to the series. During dinner, Gina watches the girl Peter is with put her tongue in his ear, squeeze his thigh, and grope his crotch. Gina decides to very carefully put her hand on Anthony's bulge and squeeze. Anthony "squawks, 'Regina!', ...slaps his hands down hard on the table. ..His palm hits his fork.." The green mushy stuff ends up on Gina and a mushroom slice on her forehead.  Don't miss out on this captivating and entertaining Ferro story!
