ARC Review: Damaged 2 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.

***I was provided an arc in return for an honest review***

Holy moly, I loved Damaged and I love the Arrangement serials so when they started to merge on the last arrangement, I'll tell ya, I was thrilled. Peter Ganz is actually Peter Ferro, brother of Sean Ferro. Mind blown! 

In Damaged 2, Sydney and Peter along with their travel companion, Mr. Turkey, start out the long trip from Texas to Jersey because Sydney's mom is dying. This trip starts off rough, as Sydney finally learns Peters identity and all the drama that comes from that family name. Plus, her ex, Dean is doing a great job stalking and her brother is just as pathetic as ever. 

Along there journey, they meet with with Sean (who after 7 serials of making me fall in love with him, took me right back to my unhappy place) and Avery (who is just so damn cute, I want to make her my best friend) as well as some other Ferro's. 

"I'm Avery Stanz, his favorite call girl"
"For real? Like you sleep with men for money?"
"Ah here we go, Sidney's my kind of girl-"
"I don't do girls"

In this book, both Peter and Sydney started to open up and begin to grow, as separate people and together. It was beautiful and fun and annoying and frustrating. 

"You don't realize how much you're worth, how wonderfully perfect you are. you saved me, Sidney. I cant repay that debt, ever. You didn't screw up my life. You took a broken man and revived him. No one else could do that. It was you, it's always been you, since the first time I saw you walk into that little restaurant in Texas and you circled the floor. you have no idea how lucky I felt that you sat down at my table. You're an amazing woman."

Plus, added bonus, every scene relating to Mr Turkey had me laughing so hard, I was in tears.
