A new romance novel by New York Times bestselling author H.M. Ward about sex, soul mates, and deadly secrets.

When Celebrity Magazine declares rock star Trystan Scott the sexiest man alive, I'm not surprised. How can anyone claim otherwise about those blazing blue eyes, rock-hard abs, dark hair, and a totally lickable dimple?

Before the billionaire playboy rose to stardom, w

Trystan and Mari have a past. It was filled with young love and a future. Yet, life experiences, no person should have to shoulder, were a constant pressure and, unfortunately, broken promises were made.

Now, 9 years later, Trystan needs help. He's self destructing. Can Mari save him? Will she become the support that Trystan so desperately seeks. Will old and new friends encourage their reunion? Can Trystan trust Mari with his heart, with his new secrets? Can Mari let him

More Trystan Scott?

A title AND a release date for January 14th, 2014 instead of a typical 1 year wait?

AND the book is 275 pages long?

First love never dies !

I am struggling to find the words! Holly's writing in this fantastic story comes straight from the very depths of her heart. It consumes you! It wraps a hold and it doesn't let go !
Trystan and Mari's love is an organic love, passionate and undeniable.
A lot of water has gone under the bridge since Trystan and Mari, were last together. Time has moved on and their lives have gone in different directions. The only thing still connecting them are their friends Katie and Seth.

2.5 stars -- I'm a fast reader normally. But rereading this series (which I probably gave higher stars than they deserved, but maybe b/c I thought something good would happen at the end) and reading this book has proved to me that I'm only a fast reader when the story is compelling. I read it because I needed to know how Trystan and Mari's story ended up, but I was disappointed. Majorly disappointed. There wasn't much of a Trystan and Mari love story at al

I'm such a hot mess right now.. I have been waiting for the ending of this story ever since I read the first in the series. I mean come on people a yummy, kind and sexy rock star with a beautiful heart! What more could a girl ask for? I could not have imagined a better ending to Trystan & Mari's story than what I read in Broken Promises. It takes off with a scary beginning that brings Trystan and Mary back together again. I was hooked from the first word! Out of all characters H.M. Ward writ ...more

Be still my heart. I have come to the conclusion that I really do have a thing for rock stars. I mean poor Trystan! Everything that he has gone through in his life that we already know and then everything that happens. Mari! Mari girl Oh My Gosh!!! You know I love these books because they leave you so emotionally raw at so many different points in the story. H.M.

One of the most emotionally charged novels I have read all year.

Trystan had nothing growing up. Now that he is a mega rock star, he has it all! Or does he?
Mari's life is on track, she is one of the best doctors in her hospital, and she is in love. Or is she?
When Trystan comes crashing back into Mari's life after almost 10 years will they be able to put the broken promises of the past behind them, or are some damages just beyond repair?

By far HM Ward's best novel to date. Broken Promises is a

This has to be H.M. Ward's best work yet!!! Trystan has been a fighter from the beginning. No matter what life threw at him, he always kept a smile on his face. The rest of his story is no different! I have always had a soft spot for Trystan and this book just confirms that he is one of H.M. Ward's most lovable characters. I loved this story from the first to the last word! You will feel every emotion possible while reading this- you will laugh, you will definitely cry and you will probably even ...more

I recieved this ARC for an honest review.
This is one of H.M. Wards best written books! It starts off years later and even though it's been a while from the last book, it does go back to fill you in. This one is a big roller coaster of emotions. You will cry, laugh and cry some more.
It is very well written with some twist and turns you will not be expecting.
I will miss Trystan & Mari's story and sad to see this series end.

Well, I'm upset. I waited a long time for this book to come out and I am disappointed with the whole thing. It was...not right. Bits and pieces were good, great even, but it didn't last and was all disjointed. Too many parts crammed together.

I am a huge fan of HM Ward and let me tell you this is my favorite book she has written so far. I loved all the Trystan Scott books and was ecstatic to get to read Broken Promises.

Broken Promises surprised me on so many levels. HM Ward takes this story and brings so much to it. Mari has hardened her heart, but ultimately it beats for Trystan even if she doesn't want to admit it. This book shows that true love and friendship will never truly die.

Trystan was everything I wanted and more. When you

News flash! Miss ward has another novel coming soon...and it's more than great!

I received this book as an ARC form H. M. Ward, and i am glad I did. In The Secret Life of Trystan scott series, it tells how Trystan Scott rose to fame. In this book, it is a year later, and something bad happens. It will have you crying, then you will laugh, then you'll shed some more tears, than next think you know, you're at the end.

All I can say is that this book is a must-read! (I t

This was not what I was hoping for. After waiting for two years I expected something great. This was just mediocre. It was very predictable and boring at times. I frequently read books in a day or two, but this one got stretched out to a week because it just didn't keep my interest. I loved "The Secret Life " but this was just okay.

Why not 5 stars? Because... She beat a dead dog! Enough already!

Why did Trystan have to go blind? Really? and I could see a mile away, but hoping I was wrong that Derrick was going to be Trystan's brother, or some part of his family.
The kidnapping when he was a baby could have been more, much more....... How did this not come out after he became famous? Cops nor the doing their job? But it's not real life, SECOND! Why did his mom wait all those years? If she would have approached him when "he" b

There is not enough space to express my experience with this book! Trystan is the classic hot rocker boy but with such tragedy in his life! I have wished and hoped for he and Mari to find each other again for so long! The love they had has got to be in its purest form. It was so sincere and real it was painful to watch at times. BUT WHAT HAPPENED???? We've been worried and wondering this and here it is in all its 400+pages of glory! HM Ward must be psychic. She was feeling all the Trystan angst ...more

OMG, How excited was I to learn that H.M. Ward was releasing a new Trystan Scott novel and it was to be a full length novel....yay!!!

As a fan of the serial I was eager to delve into Mari and Trystans lives almost ten years later.

Holly has really done justice to Mari and Trystan, she has pulled the two together with a story full of intrigue, tragedy and new issues for them to face both together and individually. The book reads at a good pace and and as always I embrace Holly's writing style as it

I fell for Trystan a long time ago, so waiting for this book had my expectations very, very high! I loved the book, but there were some things that annoyed me. Mari was a little too forgiving for me.....I expected her to explode and rip Trystan a new one! But she kinda just went with the flow and seemed to step back in time as if nothing happened and they hadn't been separated for 10 years! WTH?!?!

But besides that, it was great, and my heart broke for Trystan because what he was going through s

It's been emotional! I loved Trystan from the first time I read about him in the arrangement enough to read the 5 books of the secret life. I couldn't wait to see how Holly would bring Mari and his story to an end. I'm usually quite good at figuring these out but this book shocked me a little. It was very sad - enough to make me wish he had more of a break but it was also very sweet loving and as always addictive. I love Katie - she was every bit as amusing as she was in the older books.

Wow, Ms. Ward has topped herself. I have loved everything she has written but this has got to be my favorite yet. This book took me on an emotional roller coaster. I cried, I laughed, I got angry and I fell in love in with Trystan all over again. I loved all of it. This book hooked me from the start and kept me sucked in for all 400 and some pages.

Absolutely amazing. I can't say enough about this book. I loved Tristan prior to this book, but now I have no word to describe how amazing, awesome unbelievably sexy Tristan is. I love how we get to understand how Mari and Tristan pulled away from one another.

I loved how Tristan puts his feeling for Mari aside so she can be happy with her fiancé.

This book made me get choked up a few times and I laughed Esp when chicks named Holly are crazy

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Yes we all waited a long time for Trystans final book and Holly did not disappoint in this final installment. Great storyline and I loved that we find out about what happens to Mari, Katie, Seth,and Tucker. Definitely a must real for us Trystan Scott fans. Nothing is missed from the past and present, no stone unturned.

I have been waiting for this novel for about 2yrs. I don't wait for many books. I'd usually forget about them, lose interest. But this.........I can't say how many times I kept coming back to see if there was any news on release day........until FINALLY it came.

If you haven't followed Mari and Trystan, I suggest you do by reading The Secret Life of Trystan Scott: The Complete Collection Volumes 1-5 by H.M. Ward. And also read The Proposition series, parts of The Arrangement series by the same au
I have been waiting for the final installment of Trystan’s story since I finished Revealed. Trystan has been one of my favorite boys H.M. Ward ever created. I have loved Trystan and Mari since first pages of Collide. Even after waiting for what felt like forever for Broken Promises, H.M.

It’s more like I’m trying to break my boat free from years of rot after it’s been filled with sediment and settled on the ocean floor.” 0 likes
