ARC Review of Damaged #2 by H.M. Ward (18+ Review)

Goodreads Summary:
The steamy sequel to the New York Times bestselling New Adult novel DAMAGED by H.M. Ward.

Home isn't supposed to be dangerous, but for Sidney it is. Returning home means that she has to face her past. It's not just the man who hurt Sidney that makes it horrible, but the family that didn't believe her. They were dead to her, but now that her mom is really dying things seem different. It's a chance to set things right.

What Sidney doesn't realize is that she's dragging Peter into a collision course with his past. Peter must deal with the demons haunting him if he wants to move forward with Sidney. He's willing to give up everything for her, even wade deeper into his past life to help her move forward. But, Peter isn't sure if he can get over what happened to him in New York.

IF you have not read The Arrangement 7 this review will contain spoilers!!! 

My Review:
Damaged 2 starts off with Peter dropping a bomb on Sidney. Seriously! Peter is not who he claims to be. He has a secret identity. Peter has changed his last name and his actual last name is Ferro!! Holy crap right! This changes everything for Sidney. The Ferro name comes with a lot of baggage and to make things worse he lied about his name to Sidney. She has had enough with people lying to her. Going home to see her dying mother is going to be harder now that Peter is not allowed to come with. It doesn't take long for Sidney to run into Dean. Wow, he is the definition of ass. Will Sidney be able to forgive Peter? Can Peter get over his past? 

I love that the story lines have combined. We got to meet John Ferro, the youngest of the brothers. He is awesome! I can't wait to get to read his story. He is arrogant and cocky, which means I love him already. Sean and Avery make an appearance too. Add a little spice to the story. I actually grew to like Sidney's parents. They turned out better then I expected after everything that happened to her. 

I love Peter. There are some serious sexual tension between him and Sidney. They both have their reservations about each other but, lust can only be ignored for so long. They are perfect for each other. I know that Peter would do anything for Sidney. Possibly even commit a crime...maybe even murder. These two go through some tough stuff in this book. Meeting each others family is hard enough. And you can't forget about the turkey, he messes up some potential greatness! Sidney really grows during this book. She overcomes some of her fears. To put it bluntly she grew some balls and is taking care of herself. I felt some serious girl power!!! 

I really liked this book. I thought it was a great way for this story to go. This is a great series and you should definitely pick it up!
