H.M. Ward’s “The Arrangement 2: The Ferro Family” is a continuation of the steamy romance series that follows young artist Avery as she takes on the role of the manipulative billionaire Sean Ferro’s personal escort. The book was first published on January 16, 2013, and is the second installment in the twelve-part series.
Ward is a prolific writer, with over 100 books to her credit, mostly in the romance and new adult genres. “The Arrangement 2” fits squarely within this category, focusing on the budding relationship between Avery and Sean, and the emotional turmoil that comes with it.
The book is written in a fast-paced, modern style that will resonate with fans of the genre. In this installment, Avery and Sean’s relationship intensifies as they navigate the treacherous waters of their mutual attraction.
Ward skillfully balances their fierce chemistry with the power dynamics at play, creating tension that drives the plot forward. Meanwhile, the characters’ individual struggles with trust and vulnerability are explored, adding depth to their interactions.
The setting for the book is primarily New York City, which is depicted with vivid detail. The city’s hustle and bustle provide a fitting backdrop for the fast-paced romance, and Ward’s descriptions are immersive without being distracting.
However, the book is not without its flaws. The characterization of Avery sometimes borders on clich, as she vacillates between the innocent girl next door and the fiery temptress.
Similarly, Sean’s overbearing and controlling tendencies can be off-putting at times. Additionally, the book’s pacing can feel uneven, with some scenes dragging while others move too quickly.
Despite these issues, “The Arrangement 2” will likely please fans of the series and the genre. The chemistry between Avery and Sean is electric, and Ward’s writing style is engaging and easy to read.
Its themes of trust, vulnerability, and power dynamics are relevant in a cultural moment where similar issues are receiving greater attention.
In conclusion, those who enjoy steamy romance novels will find much to enjoy in “The Arrangement 2: The Ferro Family.” While it is not without its flaws, Ward’s skillful writing and strong characterization make for an enjoyable read.
I would recommend this book to readers looking for a fun, immersive escape from reality. Therefore, I give it three out of five stars.
