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 women, from the family fortune, from everything. 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, and if she knows the truth I risk losing her.
The thing is, I feel those old ways pulling me back, and if Sidney is part of my life she has to know. If she doesn't it could 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.
When I found out that I got approved for an ARC of the first installment of Life Before Damaged, I was super excited! Though it initially took me a while to become invested in his story, Peter quickly became my favorite Ferro by far, and I couldn’t wait to read more about him.
It quickly became clear to me that Life Before Damaged was going to be very different from Damaged. For one thing, it is told from Gina, Peter’s dead fiance’s, perspective, and she is very different from Sidney. Also, it’s about the way Peter used to be, and he was also very different from what we’re used to. In some ways, it was almost hard to read, seeing my beloved Peter acting so much more like his brothers. But at the same time, it definitely sparked my curiosity. I’m dying to see how Peter evolved from who he is in this series to who he is in Damaged.
I can’t say that a ton really happens in this installment, though there are some really good moments. I can’t decide how I feel about Gina yet. It was a little bit predictable, and the ending was something I’ve seen before, but overall, it was a good start, and I look forward to reading more!
