A new adult romance novel by New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author 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.
I like that it sounds like Losing It which I absolutely adored. I love me a fabulous NA novel and this one sounds promising. Do I even need to mention that cover? Hehe;)

The excerpts

Today I have two little excerpts for you and below is the giveaway:) They're cute and funny!

Last time she tried to set me up, I ended up on a date with a twitchy klepto. Let’s just say things didn’t go well. He picked up everything, except the check. The time before that was equally horrifying. I missed some verbal cue and the guy ended the night with a face full of pepper spray.

I stand there for a moment, not knowing if I’ve been stood up, when I feel the hairs on my neck prickle. Someone is looking at me. I feel the gaze on the back of my neck. I turn slowly and scan the room. A set of eyes, as blue as gemstones, gleam back at me. My stomach flutters. Oh, holy hell, he’s hot. I walk slowly towards his table, my heart banging against my ribs.

And, and, and, I'm sure you want to win something, right? There are two giveaways: the first one is INTL, second is for US only. Be sure to participate both of them if you can, the prize is worth the effort:) Good luck, lovelies!


  1. I really want to read this! Rafflecopter won't work for me (it's not your form, it won't work anywhere for me) or else I would enter. Thanks for sharing!

  2. ABS! hahaha My thoughts upon seeing the cover. This sounds good! I haven't heard of this book nor have I heard of the author before so thanks for featuring it and bringing it to my attention.

  3. I would like to win because I would love to own a kindle fire, plus a copy of the book damaged, I loved this book, it was so good and I cant wait for the next one to come out, nervous to see what happens when she goes home, I am a huge fan of H.M.Ward, anxiously waiting for The arrangement 5 to come out, been biting my nails so anything I can win that is connected to this author is fantastic. Thanks Anita

  4. This does sound just like Losing It, but that doesn't bother me at all. I love seeing what different authors do with a similar premise, and the whole situation with him being a teacher is so mortifying that I have to read and find out what happens. SO EXCITED!

    Also, I may have tried to make out with my screen when I saw that cover. Awkward.

  5. I love H.M. Ward's Demon Kissed and Madly series! I can't wait to read Damaged!
