Cover's up!
When will this end???

When will I be released from this prison???

Aghhhh! The Arrangement 8 picks up, as always after its predecessor #7. However, H.M Ward is mixing it up. The Ferro brothers are crossing literary boundaries and showing up in each others series! If you're familiar with this authors work you'll know Sean Ferro--Arrangement series--shows up in the Damaged series where we were introduced to his brother Peter. And Peter has made his appearance here and in #7. Gheesh!

But aside from th

FINALLY! Things are looking better...i highly recommend reading the two Damaged books because The Arrangement 8 starts where Damaged 2 left off Sean and Avery! I'm more in love with Sean now!! And I love Peter!!! Avery finally is making more mature decisions, not right ones yet, but at least they are more mature, right?
Oh, and now I definetly have a suspect for killing Sean's wife! I bet it was Henry, that snake!! Also something is up with Mrs. Black too, I'm sure! She's getting too desperate...

Okay not sure when the 9th book comes out, but I can't wait! The ending of this book was hysterical, what was Marty thinking!!! Oh and if you haven't read Damaged 2 your not going to understand the beginning of this book at all. So I suggest reading Damaged 1 and 2 if you haven't already...

Sooooo frustrated! Okay, 8 to me seemed like it was written in 5 minutes IF THAT. Bottom line, it sucked. Here's why....
First off, I was forced to read Damaged (which I am actually thankful for because those books fucking rocked!) HOWEVER, my soft spot for Sean disappeared! I mean what a fucking prick. Damaged ruined any love I had for Sean. Second of all, I think she got her Avery confused because the Avery I read about in Damaged is certainly not the same Aver

I gave 4 stars to the first "Book" and 1 star to the rest (so far) of the series. The story is really good in this tortured/damaged hero genre. The characters are likable and coherent, The sex scenes are steamy and not too skeevy, the writing is great with a few genius strokes here and there and a delicious humor. Overall 4.5 starts. BUT THIS IS NOT A BOOK, nor a "volume" and the series is not a "series": it's just an installment of a few chapters released bit by bit, not even a complete book, b ...more

I was so disappointed in this series and I wonder if Ms. Ward reads her reviews. You took a great story with rich well developed characters and a deeply moving subject and have pounded it into the ground. Even Hollywood has learned when not to make a sequel. If this series had been written in two, maybe three books than I would have easily given the stories a five star and posted links to my face book, twitter and good reads account. As it stands I am so frustrated with the author I'm not even s ...more

La verdad es que no soporto a Avery. Se queja a cada momento de su patética vida y de todos los problemas que tiene, pero no hace nada para resolverlos. Otro libro aburrido de esta serie. Sólo en final me emocionó.

Original post here!

NOOOOO!!! Why must it end!?!?! *Sigh* Once again H.M. Ward is messing with my fragile emotions with yet another jaw dropping cliffhanger. Oh the agony!

It’s Sean and Avery’s last night together. While Sean offered Avery the title of permanent call girl Avery had to accept for her pride and her wellbeing for if Sean ever left Avery would once again be on her own with nothing to show for herself. To end their night together Sean makes love to Avery which I was like “whoa! Sean is

I love this series really I do, but there are times I wish we could have a conclusion. Don't get me wrong each installment isn't boring and the subject matter isn't the same but I'm the type of person that likes happy endings and with Sean and Avery well they're two people that just needs someone to fight for them. This installment takes off right after a scene that happened in 'Damaged 2' I was kinda bummed that we didn't actually get to see the scene unfold, I would have loved to have gotten A ...more

And...Sean's left!

Not sure if it came out in the last one that Marty was straight, but I forgot to mention my shock for that in the last review....

And Henry's this perv old bastard who gets kicks outta chasin Sean's women?

Hold on Mrs. Ward....I need time to process all of this before I make an EDUCATED decision as to whether I should go to

This series is killing me!!
I can't take the ever changing ways of Sean Ferro!!
I mean, he's completely swoon worthy but I hate that I'm eight books in and he's still doing the yo-yo thing.
Finally he admits he loves Avery, he doesn't want to share her, and he wants to buy her contract from Miss Black.
He's feeling alive again because of Avery.
That time they went sledding in the park was so sweet and so romantic.
I thought here we go...they're going to finally get it right!!!
Well HELL TO THE NO, that

Love H.M. Ward and this series but I'm getting frustrated with the short books. She needs to tie it up in one book and finish this series. Having to wait so long for my next fix is just miserable.

Sean not being present in most of this story. Henry turning out to be psycho because of a woman from Sean and his past.

I knew Marty was going to be her customer. He's trying to find a way to turn things in his favor make Avery feel something for him. So, now we have wait to see how that will play out.

It hurts my heart to say this but I was completely disappointed in this part of the series.....There were hardly any scenes with Sean and Avery in them which would have been fine if they were seperatly working out how to be together but they were not....Sean was not even in this book, ok so he gave Avery the best sex of her life in the first few pages only to tell her good bye...Then no more Sean just Avery getting thrashed about by Black and then Henry...And the ending!!!

This review is for the whole series

I mainly bought these because I was curious as to how this author got to be a NY Times and Amazon best selling author. I'm still trying to figure it out. At the beginning it seemed like a mildly intriguing (although hardly original) story but it went on and on and over and over the same ground. Plus it had terrible grammar & typo's all over the place, and some of the most shocking clangers I have ever seen ("... the matching earrings she had bought to match

Que jodida de mente me dieron con este libro, fueron demasiadas emociones en un periodo demasiado corto. Comence de lo mas triste con esta pareja separandose, luego fue enojo porque los dos estan demasiado jodidos para aceptar que quieren luchar por el otro, se dan por vencido demasiado rapido! Deseaba que lucharan, que se dejaran sentir, que no luchen mas en contra de sus corazones. Luego Avery me resiente porque es demasiado testaruda, no se deja ayudar y odio que por su necedad esta dejando i ...more

Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review and can I just say I did not see this coming! I love how the books are all intertwining and we get to see snippets of each character in each one. This book ended on quite a twist and with Sean out of the picture, I really hope he comes to his senses. I do have to say that even though Marty has came clean and confessed his love for Avery I still find him to be quite a camp character. I think Avery may follow Sean after all in vol 9 but with so many ...more

I didn't understand this book because apparently to understand book 8, I have to read the two Damaged books before hand. Does that make sense? A reader needs to read another series in order to understand? I'm undecided whether or not to do that. Reviews for Damaged look good, but I don't know if I want to devote so much time for one series. This is book 8 and it never seems to end. The series started out really good, but the storyline is now frustrating and to me it just feels like a filler book ...more

I'm getting real damn tired of Avery and all of her unnecessary bull shit. She's making it really hard for me to want to read the other books, but silly me for even making it this far.
What is so special about Avery? When I think of Avery, I think of a high schooler, but with the brains of a 4 year old. I just don't understand how anyone could be this stupid. How many people does it take to say "hey you know your best guy friend Marty? Yeah he's in love with you" for her to not believe it cause

I absolutely LOVE Sean, Avery, Mel and Marty but I am really getting tired of paying $2.99 for basically 1/4 of a book. So far we have had 8 books with approximately 70 pages which could have been easily been made into two books.

How many more books are there going to be ? This is getting a little ridiculous but I want to see the ending so I guess I just have to keep buying them. I have learned to check the number of pages on new series before I purchase the first one.
Jul 05, 2013 Saunders rated it did not like it
What did I think? complete and utter rubbish. I cannot believe that this author is taking this series onto a 9th book. These are not cheap reads - almost 2 per short story which is amounting to almost 18 (plus) for a book.

This would have been a decent story if it had a beginning a middle and yes an end. I don't know how long she intends to continue with this but I wont be giving any more money to find out.
