Damaged by H.M. Ward
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.
My rate & take
This little book had me glued to it, and as I neared the end I know it wasn't going to be enough for me. As luck (and torture) would have it I found out this is book 1 of the Damaged series. Sadly I will have to wait for book 2 to continue my crush. I loved the way the main characters flirted and some of their killer looks for each other were scorchers in their own rights. Of course with the fun comes the pain, both characters are dragging a boat load of hurt around on top of the balancing act of not seeming to be 'too friendly' since they are on opposite sides of academia. I am going to be eagerly awaiting book 2!
