ARC Review of Secrets and Lies Vol. 1 by H.M. Ward

Goodreads Summary:
They say the best way to get over a broken heart is a random hook-up. So my new BFF is dragging me to a bar. All I have to do is wear a slutty dress, choose a dude, and do the deed, right? The thing is, this isn't me. I'm the good girl -- the one who has sex for love. But, since the love of my life is shacked up with someone else, I guess it's time to move on.

One night, one time. That's all. I'll have a clean slate.

A guy with a sketch pad, sitting alone, catches my eye. I'm a sucker for the artistic type with dark hair and bright blue eyes. Soon we're in his hotel room doing things I've never done. His smoldering body, perfectly toned with hot skin and a firm touch, has my mind reeling with the things to come. We're both naked and glistening with sweat, breathless.

And then he darts, right before doing the deed, abandoning me in his room. He doesn't return.

A week later I see him again, and realize that he wasn't just a random guy. My heart clenches at the massive mistake, and I still don't grasp the extent of it. I should have run and never looked back.

My Review:
OMG! Who is this mystery Ferro!? Kerry is desperate to heal her broken heart. The guy she was supposed to be with forever has someone else and it is her first day at college. What is a girl to do? Well meet an awesome new friend and go to the bar dressed up super-hot to find a man! Seems like a good thing to do right? Let a hot ripped buy bang the heartache right out of you. Well things don't go exactly as Kerry planned. Mystery Man has other things on his mind and right before they do the deed he leaves! Kerry is faced with more rejection than she can handle at this point. How can a complete stranger not even want her when sex is guaranteed?? Is there something wrong with her?

I love this angle for a new Ferro volume. Kerry is vulnerable and has some really crappy luck. The only thing that is going for her so far is her new friend is awesome and her brothers are pretty helpful too. I just need to say this too. For her ex to dump her via test message is about as douchey as it gets! She is better off without him. I am curious to see where things are going to go with Mystery Guy. Who happens to be an artist. This should be fun! I have visions already of painty messes!
