Wow!! Is all I can say, Jaded Promises is a fantastic ending to the trust series. It is filled with mystery, murder, family, trust, luscious sex and lies and keeps you gripping your seat to the very end. It’s filled with twists and turns you would never have imagined and keeps you guessing the whole time. I was blown away by the revelations that became about. Gob smacked I might say you would call it!! I was kept intrigued throughout the entire story, rapt and drawn into this whirlwind of events. The twists and turns I never expected, the suspense almost killed me... I was taken aback by the dramatic disclosure and events that became about - thinking oh my gosh!!!! NO !!!! I did not expect this- I enjoyed this book not being predictable as it defiantly was not!

I was still mesmerized by the love in which Eric and Rebecca still held onto through all there dilemmas. The love was sensual, lustful and magical. The sex was hot yet classy and their feelings well described. They went to the end of the earth and back and love still conquered and found its way!!
Eric ** heart throb** was definitely my ideal knight in shining amour, always there for Becca , the emotions realistic as in every day life. I found the emotions realistic and very genuine... I enjoyed the way in which Amy showed the feelings, it was like poetry.

Rebecca’s character I enjoyed she had her moments but still stuck to her kick arse red head attitude ** FIREY AND STRAIGHT FORWARD AND INDEPENDANT ** I enjoyed her tough exterior immensely but also liked the fact that she was only human and had her moments, very real and emotional, I felt I was there at certain parts, I was feeling torn with her. One can only take so much -This being Realistic in everyday life once again.
Overall the storyline was fluent, face paced, and smooth, the dialogue flowing and the storyline consistent and never lacking a dull moment. I could just not put the book down! New characters were introduced and past books and information all flowed from book one through to book 3. Mild sex scenes very beautiful and sensual - the sex does not overtake the storyline, just gives it that little bit of excitement very sensual and thrilling.
Overall a powerful thriller with that lush and sensual romance entwined......
I am sad to see this series end but I did not feel the story was left hanging Amy ended it with everything concluded and not that feeling that you thought something was missing.
