As I said I would be telling you about the books that have made it into my hands this month and I am going to start with Damaged by H.M. Ward. This book was released in April and my feeds were blowing up with people reading it and even Amazon was pushing me to read this. Well what happens then, of course I purchase it and read it over other books that I probably should have read instead. It has been 2 weeks since I read this and it was very forgettable. I am not sure I recommend this book, there are so many other great stories that are better. However it is only 99 cents so if you are interested it wouldn’t be a complete waste but it is a series so it may trap you.
Damaged by H.M. Ward
Blurb: Life sucks. And, as soon as Sidney picks up the pieces something always knocks her back onto her butt. It’s never pretty, but this time is different. This time pretty isn’t even the right word.
Peter is the personification of perfection. It’s like he fell off his angel perch in purgatory, because let’s face it–any guy that hot has got to be naughty. He was probably sent here to ruin her life.
Peter is beyond beautiful with his sexy blue eyes, dark hair, and toned body. Add in his charming wit and Peter is everything Sidney ever wanted in a man, but when things get hot and heavy Peter shows her the door. Sidney takes the walk of shame and leaves. It’s the end of the worst blind date ever. Her life couldn’t possibly reach higher levels of suckage, but it does.
The next morning everything comes crashing down. The insanely hot guy from last night, the one that saw her half naked, is teaching at the front of the class room.
Rating: 3 Stars
The beginning was awesome! A girl sits down at a gorgeous mans table assuming he is her blind date and the rest is history. That really was one of the best scenes I have read in a book. However it falls flat after that! The middle dragged a lot and we also got to the major plot line which is that the hot man is now her teacher and their relationship would be prohibited. I have read a couple of stories like this and this one was not the best so oh well… it happens. The damaged part of the novel refers to the main characters. They both have traumatic pasts which once again are not unique and probably one of the most frequently used in Sidney’s case. Anyway the end does get slightly better but not enough to recover the rating of this book. It was just over used plot lines on so many levels! It wasn’t a bad read just not a fantastic new read unlike any other which is what I was hoping for. And by the way it is a series and it doesn’t have a show stopping cliffhanger but it also doesn’t resolve anything and actually introduces a new twist at 98%!
