Money. Power. Sex.
This can't be happening. Maybe storming off to the club and getting sloshed was a bad idea, but I couldn't handle all that's happened. Forget for a while, that's all I wanted. After dancing with the wrong guy all night I planned on forgetting everything troubling me while rolling around in his bed. The problem is the guy is Pete Ferro and I'm me. It's a horrible plan to get all sinful and sweaty with him, but it's exactly what I need. One night with no connections, no worries, and a guy who isn't after my money or my family.
Screw it. I'm going to get lucky.
For the sake of clarity, I actually received an ARC from the author, but it expired before I got to read it, so I ended up buying it and then reading it.
I know I say it every time, but Life Before Damaged Vol. 5 was definitely my favorite installment thus far. It picks up pretty much immediately where Vol. 4 left off, and right from the start, I was hooked. I love seeing Peter and Gina’s relationship evolve, and his head-butting, pissing contest with Ricky at the beginning was hilarious.
Along with Gina, I’m still trying to figure out how Peter’s mind works, since he can be very confusing and frustrating at times! But there’s always that hint of someone so amazing, kind, and lovable that just draws me to him and makes me unable to stop reading about him. I fell in love with him in Damaged, and I love seeing how he progresses from the jerk from Life Before Damaged into the sweet guy that I love from Damaged.
There were some scenes that just made me want to scream. Gina’s father is probably one of my least favorite characters EVER. Seriously, the guy just has his head up his butt and needs to knock it off! He’s such a condescending jerk, and I HATE him! Usually I like her mother, but I wanted to smack her in this installment as well.
However, the ending was incredible, and I’m so mad that I don’t have the next installment in my hand. I honestly couldn’t have predicted any of it, but it came as little surprise, if that makes any sense. Except for the last couple sentences. They were frustrating and amazing and had me smiling all at the same time. I am VERY excited to see how this all pans out!
