Life Before Damaged, Vol. 8 (The Ferro Family) by H.M. Ward


Money. Power. Sex.

People don't change. They can't. It's a simple thing to understand and yet, everything I'm seeing in the billionaire Pete Ferro makes me think that I'm wrong. Perhaps this alpha male is capable of love after all? That should be a good thing since I'm engaged to him and a wedding is swiftly approaching, but I wanted a white knight type of love story. Instead I got the dark romance that I can't explain.

After all the fights are washed away, there's another man beneath the surface of that sexy exterior searching for a second chance at life. There's more to him than a sexy grin and a beautiful body, but he hides those pieces of his soul away from everyone--except me.

I'm attracted to that man--the hot player who's really a poet, the heartbreaker of a manwhore with the deep blue eyes and crooked smile. I can't fall in love with him because it would break my heart and there's so little left.

Genre: New Adult Romance

I received an advanced readers copy and I have to say thank you, thank you, thank you but I need more, more, more!!!! I could not put this book down. By the time I reached the end I was saying no, no way and it can't end here, not like this because I can't wait to see what happens next. Yes, it is that good. The chemistry between Pete and Gina gets better and better and it has you on edge just waiting for that moment, that perfectly crazy, dysfunctional moment you know could only be theirs. Gina will bring you on an emotional roller coaster ride as she explains her world, her feelings, now that her future has been dictated to her, for her. Pete seems to be battling an internal struggle on his good versus evil but I think Ferro always seems to win. It takes a strong person to tame one but does Gina have that strength? Every time I think I couldn't love another series more, I am proved wrong by Ward. Throw in a Ferro brother cameo and the evil mother for an A++++ book you will have to read and re-read to believe. I am always anxiously waiting for everything from this author. Simply fantastic!

**ARC Review** H.M. Ward has done it again! Gina is finally happy living her life until Pete shows up and tells her that Constance is making her move into the mansion. Once there, Gina is lonely no one to talk to, Pete comes to her rescue once again. Just as you think Pete's wall are coming down, letting his softer side out and letting Gina in, he pulls Ferro crushing Gina's heart and it is then she finally realizes she is in love with Pete. LBD 8 has you feeling all kinds of emotions so that you are unable to put the book down! It is very well written and leaves you wanting more! I can not wait until book 9 comes out!!

Love, Live & Hope Incredibly descriptive, highly charged and exceptional writing! H.M. Ward has taken Pete and Gina to an entirely new level of EPIC. Gina has come to terms with her future but she needs to live, she needs to feel, she needs to fight. Here it is, the beginning of the end. Every word has meaning, every moment is writing with affection. Food, animals and trash will keep you reading until the end. Some scenes so absolutely hysterical that it became dangerous to my bladder. Dancing and poetry are both a form of art. There is a passion one can see with dance. Will Gina express her innermost self with Pete. Poetry is something that can be read and heard. Can Pete share his deepest thoughts? Yes, the tension is high, the chemistry resembles fireworks ready to explode. Will these two have their moment? Can they make their future work? Are their secrets secure from outside influences? Peter will forever be my number one Ferro. Life Before Damaged 8 will not disappoint you. Read it, embrace it, laugh, cry and rejoice because hands down this is a must read!

Another great installment in the LBD series. we know it is coming to an end soon if you have read Damaged by HM Ward. Gina has grown into such a funny light and moving young lady. Still learning who she is, she knows she loves Peter but he is still trying to save her from his mother. Oh the sweet agony! Love the twists in this plot. I want the next book but dont want it to end!! HM Ward continues to keep me begging for more!

HOT.... I love the Pete and Gina romance. Great book series that just keeps getting better and better. Gina's heart strings are getting pulled and she is trying to figure out is it Phillip who is hot, sexy and really into her and they go on a crazy adventure of skydiving or Pete her soon to be arranged husband (thanks to a business merger) that she WANTS.... Gina is putting it all out there since this is her second chance at everything. Will she open up her heart and to whom? read it.... you won't be sorry

***I received this book as an ARC for an honest review*** This installment will have you literally laughing out loud, swooning over the closeness happening between Gina & Pete and then feel heartache all in one book. Gina and Pete are so made for each other, you will find that you are trying to read as fast as you can to see what happens between them. In this story, Gina has to come clean with Phillip. She is left with no other choice after Queen Connie forces her into the Ferro mansion. She is only allowed to be driven to and from classes. Constance is not letting her out to see friends or let then visit her. She is basically in prison. The nightmares continue and she is all alone. After an encounter in the ballroom, Pete tells Gina they are going on their first date together. Gina and Pete stop and pick Pete up some sexy saddle shoes then make their way to dinner. To say it was orgasmic is an understatement! Dessert with cookies is moan worthy. But like all good things, it all seems to fall apart for them. After a hostile encounter with her drunk ex boyfriend Anthony, Gina stops Pete from beating him to a pulp. They escape to the ballroom. There they dance away all their frustrations and problems. They are lost in their own little world and it looks like they are both reading for the next step. Only they are interrupted and it breaks Gina. After the interruption and escaping Pete, Gina finally admits out loud the three words she has been trying to deny. Why oh why does Holly do this to us! She brings you into this story that you become attached to her characters. The pain that Gina feels is felt by all her readers. We are all waiting, impatiently, for the P & G hookup!! Need more now!!

I didn't really know it was possible to love & hate a guy as much as I do Pete!!!! He has these stunningly beautiful moments that just take my breath away, I swear I feel what Gina is feeling, and then, he has these stunningly absurd moments that make me want to punch him in the throat!!! I can just feel Gina's rise & fall of emotions, I can feel her angst, her loneliness... it's heartbreaking!! LBD 8 is no less amazing than the other 7. It makes me laugh, scream, cry, and beg for more with each & every word that I read, knowing I am getting closer & closer to the end...I love it, and can't wait for #9!!!

Funny and Emotional I really liked this book. Emotions run rampant in this installment of the Life Before Damaged Series. We find Gina pushing herself to live in the moment. Gina and Philip seem to be getting along just fine until Peter shows up with orders for her to love into the mansion. After moving in Gina is miserable. Peter seems to be continuing with his player ways and she is left along to her thoughts and fears. To escape she dances. Peter finds her dancing and decides to share some of his deepest feelings with her. Life seems to be getting better for the couple. But then things change. Can't wait for the next installment to see what happens with our couple. Hopefully Peter will get it together in time.

I love reading about Pete's life with Gina, it gives us insight to what Peter went through and why he chose to change his name and his life. I want to knock some sense into him, can't he see that Gina is in love with him? Why does he keep messing with her heart, one minute he acts as if he cares and then he does something to hurt her. I just wish he would make up his mind. I hope that her family comes around and forgives her, she didn't mean to get them into this predicament, but she is paying dearly for her mistake. Sometimes it's hard to give a review without telling the story. I laughed with Gina and I was sad for her at the same time. I received an ARC for my honest review. H.M. Ward has delivered an awesome book yet again.

The next step in this extraordinary tale takes place. I am by far completely floored yet again by the amazing work of H.M. Ward. The feeling I got from this book at times was hope. Hope for Peter, hope for Gina, hope that things can change no matter how far a person has gone or how deeply hidden a persons true self is. To stick with the typical Ferro fashion you will not only laugh but want to bawl as well reading this book. H.M. Ward has a way of stringing you through the story in a way that has you on an emotional roller coaster ride to describe it as plainly as I can. She always does this to me after reading one of her books I'm always left speech less and emotionally drained. Kudos Mrs. Ward for leaving me completely floored once again.

Life Before Damaged Volume 8- Is breathtaking. It has so many emotions packed into this installment that you never know for sure what is going to happen.You will laugh and you will cry as you follow Peter and Gina into love and heartache. You will feel the turmoil when Philip (& Anthony) are in the equation. Then you toss in Constance and all hell breaks lose. The roller coaster that H.M. Ward keeps you on in this series is amazing. Just when you think you have if all figured out in your mind and how things will end up and play out H.M. Ward rips the carpet right out from under you feet and goes in another direction and tosses another character in to stir that mighty pot she was brewing named the Ferro's. When a Ferro is involved you know there will be hot sexy steamy parts with heart break and nightmares. Those Ferro's are some bad boys. This installment was the best so far IMO! But it leaves me needing more. I need more answers. I want to know how everything is finally going to fall into place. It's really hard to say to much without giving away anything. But if you are just stumbling across this book then you must go get book one now and start the amazing reading marathon. You will love the Ferro's.
