The Arrangement by H. M. Ward

The Arrangement


FML is becoming Avery's motto. Just when she doesn't think things could get any worse, they do. When her car stalls out at a busy intersection and she gets out to check under the hood, a guy steals her car. Armed with a dress and a pair of Chucks, Avery runs after the thief. When a hot stranger offers to help, she can't say no. That's how Avery meets Sean Ferro, the totally sexy, totally damaged guy with more secrets than she has time for.

Avery doesn't have time for anything anymore. Her is life falling apart and it's not just the car. It's everything, and it doesn't matter how tightly she tries to hold on, there's nothing left to hold on to. With the sudden death of her parents, it's only a matter of months until Avery's shot at college is gone, and she's living in a cardboard box. Other students have their families to rely on when things get bad. Avery has no one. 

But there's one option, one incredibly sexy, morally devoid, option. If Avery takes a job as a call girl, one guy could save her. One client. One time. She just has to say yes

My Thoughts:

Actually I was intrigued to read this book because of the author. The name sounded familiar to me. When I realized that the book was pretty short, I thought it would be a simple read. But I was wrong. The book is a short novel on the lives of Avery Stanz and Sean Ferro. It is book one of the series. And that really pissed me off a lot considering that I expected it to be a standalone. -.-
Okay, moving to the story. The story is about Avery who’s struggling on surviving her college life due to her financial problems. She develops a friendship with Sean after he offer her help once. Avery’s friend introduces her to the world of call girls and although at first she says no, she finally agrees. Why? Because she needs money and she has a crush on the client, Sean. The story ends with a cliffhanger. [Spoiler starts] They meet and Avery asks him to teach her everything. The End. [Spoiler ends]
I enjoyed this book, to my surprised, a lot. It was a light read and I liked the characters. Both characters are relatable. But that’s it, I like it, but I don’t love it.
