H.M. Ward – Damaged (The Ferro Family) Series Reading Order

in Reading Order Guide:

Teacher/Student teacher romance alert!!!! By the sound of book #1′s synopsis, this looks like exactly that.

NOTE: This series (which consists of full length novels) appears to intermix/with her very popular “The Arrangement” series (which is her “short serial” installment series).

The author says:

“… you don’t have to read the serials to know what’s going on. Each series is stand alone, which means they can be read independently of one another.” (you can read her entire blogpost where she explains why she writes a “serial” series, and why she also writes a full-length novel series).

She also explained on her Facebook that there are three series that all “intertwine” because they’re about:

One family, 3 brothers, 3 different series that intertwine – SEAN: THE ARRANGEMENT, PETER: DAMAGED, JONATHAN: STRIPPED

(You’ll notice the “Damaged” and “Stripped” books listed below on this post):

And here are some comments for our enthusiastic fellow readers!

Donna: Love this series and the crossover between the arrangement and damaged is great xx

Amy: I loved Damaged and Damaged 2 and can not wait for Stripped!!

Mary: Loved both. Did not need to read arrangement to understand I thought. Looking forward to third series about the third brother.

Denisa: Oh Maryse Damaged is Peters story, fab book There is also going to be “Stripped” which is the youngest brother Jonathan’s story. Absolutely love this series

About book #1:

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.

   

P.S. A tidbit for the series reading order die-hards:

I did have some fellow readers give me the exact reading order if a new reader/”reading order purist” (which I am) wanted to read both series in the correct sequence. Here was the gist:

——————–

Susan: I read all of the Arrangement so far and both Damaged. I would read:

but that’s just my suggestion:)

Kristie: Reading order…Damaged: The Ferro Family, Arrangement 1-8, Damaged 2 then Arrangement 9

Laura: You don’t have to read them all, but I would. It’s really great to read the cross overs and to see how it all fits together. Can’t wait for # 10 and STRIPPED!

Mary: … Did not need to read arrangement to understand I thought. Looking forward to third series about the third brother.

I read both damaged books. I absolutely loved them. When damaged 2 released I put the book I was reading on hold so I could read damaged 2. That led me to reading the arrangement series. I’m so hooked on the Ferro brothers and I can’t wait to read Stripped.

Thank you Tracie!! Good to know that you can read these without already knowing what’s going on in “The Arrangement”. I did have some fellow readers give me the exact reading order if a new reader/reading order purist wanted to read both series in the correct sequence. I’m going to put that up next, but here was the gist:

——————–

Susan: I read all of the Arrangement so far and both Damaged. I would read Damaged 1 then the Arrangement 1-8, then Damaged 2, then Arrangement 9…but that’s just my suggestion:)

Kristie: Reading order…Damaged, Arrangement 1-8, Damaged 2 then Arrangement 9

Laura: You don’t have to read them all, but I would. It’s really great to read the cross overs and to see how it all fits together. Can’t wait for # 10 and Strippped!

Thanks for this post Maryse. I liked Damaged 1 and never even realized 2 was out. I’ll have to read all these Arrangement books 1st.

I have read both books and loved them both. The first book ended just as it was getting started.
In the second book though i really wanted to shake her brother and get him to wake up.
screamed at my kindle so many times, was just happy with the ending.

I have just started really getting into your books. I seen an ad for Stripped and I read it before anything else. I really loved it and can’t wait to read more of your books and series.

I’m reading them based on Publication order, does that work too? I feel like Damaged works after book four of The Arrangement because he starts mentioning his ‘brothers got other issues’ in book five which I stopped there and realized I should have crossed over then.

Would that work too?

Who is nick ferro? I just read the Wedding Contract and he explains that he is the middle son yet no mention of him any where else in hm ward’s books? Is there a second Ferro family?

Leanne July 3, 2014 at 8:49 AM

Carole – He is a cousin to Sean(Arrangement), Peter(Damaged) and Jon (Stripped)- Bryan’s brother (Proposition)

Dawn September 30, 2014 at 1:13 PM

Do we find out about Marty and Sean? I read all 16 books in arrangement series and it left me hanging… Do they get happy ever after?? Uggg help. Spent sooo much money for it to end in the middle of a story.
