Secrets & Lies Vol.2 The Ferro Family by HM Ward

Secrets & Lies Vol.2  
The Ferro Family 

by HM Ward

"Rebound sex gone wrong, plus epically bad luck, lands me in a sticky spot--at the front of a classroom, naked, with the totally hot, and totally forbidden Mr Sketch Pad. I'm not a model, but here I am feeling more drawn to him more each second. Add in that sexy smile and I'm totally screwed."

"Crouching in front of me, he adds, “Maybe we can pick up where we left off later, assuming you’re okay breaking a little rule?”

“Maybe.” I smile at him while looking up from under my lashes. “That might be nice.”

“It’ll be better than nice. And I owe you an explanation and promise it won’t happen again.” He runs his hand through his dark hair, his eyes suddenly darting away. For a second, he sucks in air like the room is a coffin and he’ll never get enough. Then he glances up at me, smile back in place.

I can’t tell if he’s playing me or not. Truth be told, I don’t mind being played with. I mean it’s been a while since anyone played with anything down there. My ex said he wanted to wait until we saw each other again, at Fall Break, that it’d be romantic being apart for so long. I’m pretty sure there are dustbunnies down there.

Screw it. Screw Matt.

I toss aside the warning and jump off the cliff."

There seems to be an undercurrent Kerry is not able to understand between Emily and Nathan. Carver, thank you for being a good friend, is very protective of her too. Finally, a phone call from home absolutely throws her for a spin. Yep! All of this within the first few pages.

There is so much going on. Kerry is trying to sort through all the back and forth - how is a girl to know which of these rich brats are going to be douche bags an which ones will make good friends? Kerry is so innocent!

She also has to decide if she will show up for the modelling gig. Let's face it... she not used to sitting around a bunch of students while they draw her naked body.

Reading this brings back memories of those early college days where everything is so new and different. Being away from the security and routine of home is difficult enough. Now she is in the real world and must make her way, making her own decisions and choosing who she is going to be when she grows up.

I find it amazing how HM Ward is able to develop rather quickly characters that feel so real. I am invested in Kerry's future already. The mother in me just wants to protect her from all the jackasses and dangers that exist in her world. Keep reminding me... this is a book... this is fiction... they are not really real!

In this Series:

Secrets & Lies Vol. 1
The Ferro Family 

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.
