Money. Power. Sex.

The trifecta every man strives for and very few attain. I had these things and walked away from the endless stream of beautiful women, the billions of my family fortune, and the power that comes with my name. I was an arrogant bastard, an alpha a*****e with nothing holding me back. I took what I wanted and didn't apologize. I spoke with my fists, fighting when things were too much. It was an attractive life from the outside, a sexy arrangement that anyone would desire. It was all mine in a life long forgotten.

The past can't stay buried forever, and hiding mine from Sidney is getting harder. I'm not the guy she thinks I am--I'm not just the poet or the witty teacher. I'm the opposite of who I once was, and got a second chance at life. But my dark past lingers, threatening to tear us apart.

The thing is, I feel those old ways pulling me back, and if Sidney is part of my life now she has to know. Keeping secrets and lying to her will destroy us both. The truth won't set me free. No matter what my name is, I'll always be a Ferro. But Sidney has a choice and I won't steal it from her.

Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
This story unfolds over multiple volumes

  • PETER!!!

    By Andrea_Lea
    I am a little late with my review but school got in the way. I, like everyone else, can't get enough of the Ferro's. I really enjoyed this one about Peter. He is so sweet, loving, and semi-nerdy. He is one of my favorites. I am loving getting to read about him, the bad boy, before he became Peter Granz. Holly has done it again. I am completely hooked on this series. When is the second one?
  • PETER <3

    By Ddgoldbergs
    Funny, sexy and mysterious. Life Before Damaged is an exceptional read! The way Gina sees Peter interact for the first time is so hysterical. There are so many Gina moments that make her unique and I can see why Peter loved her. No need to enjoy this journey like I did. Prequels can be tricky. But not Holly Ward's! This woman is the queen of all Ferro. How effortlessly she writes; I felt like I was there watching from the sidelines while reading. Life Before Damaged is seriously OUTSTANDING! This is a must read. You won't be disappointed. I <3 Peter

    I love all of your books. You are a master story teller and I enjoy the complexed characters, their charisma, their antics and all things Ferro. But-- waiting for each chapter is very trying. I have read from start to present of The Arrangement twice and then feel frustrated when I am left hanging again and waiting for months for the next installment. Absolutely a fan, just would prefer each installment to be longer. It's like watching a movie series thats meant to be shown over 3 days but only one of the series available for viewing every 4 or 5 months. Painful!! I may be the only fan that feels this way - just saying.
  • Life Before Damaged. Vol. 1. WOW!!!

    By BAC,AZ
    This book is amazing. I have read "Damaged 1 & 2" however this leaves my dying to read Life Before. Vol. 2. It is hot and pulled me in within the first few pages. It is the Bad Boy that was spoken of, but not detailed before nor how Peter and Gina met. I thought about it before, but did not realize how much I really wanted to know until I read this book. Now I am hooked. I am not very good at delayed gratification in the books I read. PLEASE HELP ME! I NEED THE NEXT BOOK NOW!!!!

    **ARC Review - Spoiler Free** Wow.. If I wasn't already obsessed with Peter Ferro, I would totally be after reading this book! Seriously H.M. Ward, you have outdone yourself. I was completely captivated from page one. Although it feels like a slight betrayal to Sydney, I simply couldn't help but love Gina's character! Her sense of humor and quick wit won me over immediately! I so badly wanted her to let go of her "Good Girl" front and cut through the sexual tension of Pete Ferro!! This quote totally sums it up... "He is pure, sinful temptation".. Ugh... Waiting to know what happens next is pure masochistic torture!! Must have more!!!
  • Peter is Hot!!

    By angieh80
    I think I may be in the minority club here, but, while I very much enjoyed Damaged 1 & 2 with Peter & Syndey, I was a little bored with Peter. He wasn't that crazy,sexy as hell,alpha male like Sean, which I find so freaking sexy...but in Life Before Damaged, wooo weeee....Peter was HOT!!! I absolutely loved his cocky,I don't give a crap attitude!! I mean, I read these books because I want that guy that is so sexy & out of control but still capable of protecting & loving the right woman...but I do very much enjoy the fun parts leading up to a happy ever after. In most books, I wish there was more of the drawn out bad boy stuff. Lol. I loved this story, loved the idea of using Gina's diaries to tell the story. I think it was an amazing twist to tell it from her point of view not just Peter or Sydney's. This story is not much different from Holly's other Ferro books, meaning there is angst, sexy drawn out desire, turns you don't expect, obvious secrets, and of course, such a cliffhanger!! Wth Peter, you had Gina right where you, and me, wanted her!!! I like GIna, I think I expected to not like her, but even though she seems like a goody goody, I think there is fire just under that surface, and man,I can't wait to see what she has in store. I am loving the way Holly has chosen to give the back story about Peter. Another reason I adore her writing & her stories!! Loved this story, can't wait for #2, thank you Holly, for another awesome start to a series!!
