Writing Broken Promises has been such an amazing experience and I can't wait to share it with everyone this October. It has definitely been a labor of love, one that I'm proud of and my Bree and Quinn - as an author you can't ask for better characters. I hope you enjoy it!

Broken Promises is the first book in the new Brianna Lane series by Belinda Boring. This was my first book by Belinda Boring and I have to say I really liked it. It's an urban fantasy story about evil Fae invading Planet Earth. Now, I did not realize there were Fae involved when I picked it and as they are not my favorite PRN creatures, I was none too sure. But I really did like it. Those evil ol' Fae 'glamour' the population which turns them violent, causing them to turn against one another. Th

Broken Promises
By Belinda Boring

I received a copy of Broken Promises in exchange for an honest review. This book is so different from her other SWOONY books it is darker and deeper. What would you do if the world suddenly went crazy and you find out that you were not who you thought you were. Brianna and Quinn were having the time of their lives do much in love. They were the ying and yang to each other. They balanced the other out until the dark fae decided that humans were verm

I am one of those people who either does not read they synopsis or if I do it is way before I get to the book. I like the surprise of it. In this case, I knew I loved the author and did not even skim the synopsis. I am so glad I read it that way because I never knew what was going to happen. In fact, I did not realize it was even about Fae, which are one of my all time faves. I know I would have loved it regardless because it was such a different story and had fae in a unique way.

What do you do when the man you love turns cold. How does it make you feel when he was just a romantic guy the other day. OMG!!! I just couldn't believe some of the things that went on in this book.

As a fan of Belinda Boring’s Mystic Wolves series, when I heard about Broken Promises, an urban fantasy with a darker edge, I was intrigued. Broken Promises is centered around the fae and the human world is drastically altered because of their actions. There is deeper development and background that has to take place in Broken Promises than in the Mystic Wolves series, and while I don’t feel the book was flawless, it was a very promising start to a new series.

If you are not yet a Belinda Boring fan already get on this train of new and titillating imagination! This book is a little different than Belinda's 'Mystic Wolves' series (love that series!)

Broken Promises is the first book in the new Brianna Lane series by Belinda Boring. It's an urban fantasy story about evil Fae invading Earth. They glamour the population to make them violent, and people start turning against each other. When Quinn, the man Bri loves, turns violent – her world shatters. Everything she has ever known has changed, and she will stop at nothing to reverse the hold the Fae have over Quinn and the rest of the population.

As many of you know I am a huge Belinda Boring fan, so when I was asked to review this book I jumped at the chance. Let me just say Belinda's writing just gets better and better with each book she puts out. My only problem was that I just didn't start this book sooner than I did.

The world is under attack. No one saw this one coming until it was already happening. The method of attack is so overpowering that even those that figured out what was going on had little to no time to defend themselves against it. The human race stands the chance of being annihilated by their own hands without understanding their actions. How could this be happening? A handful of people can answer this question only because the secret that the Fae truly existed on another world has been kept a ...more

This book drew me in the moment I read the first page. The story line and characters were interesting. I liked this version of the fae.
The prologue gave me a little of what this story was going to be about. Dangrous, edgy, and questions of what was going to happen. I'm curious to see who this queen is in Fae and what she has to do with the rest of the series.
Bri and Quinn were fantastic charcters. The way they talk to each other and love each other so much brought a smile to my face. Bri being

Belinda Boring, you wicked writer. This is a story filled will all the things that make people love romance novels. It's steamy, unpredictable and a unique storyline. I love how you presented a different perception of Fae. The passion between the characters Bri and Quinn is palpable and will leave more than one woman wishing she could find a love that intense.

I stayed up two nights in a row unable to stop reading just to find out what happens next. **Spoiler Alert** I had to know if Bri would be

Belinda again comes out with a BANG. Here is another amazingly written book that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the end.

Another set of characters who you fall in love with easily. These characters are funny, infuriating and at times break your heart. I loved Bri right off, and her sexy as hell boyfriend Quinn. Everything is normal until they get close to the movies, something is happening to Quinn and it isn't right. She has no idea how to help him, or what to do all she knows is she h

What do you do when the man you love turns on you? I mean, not break up but literally becomes a dark and violent predator whose only goal is to destroy you. This is the question that hangs heavy in Brianna Lane’s heart and mind. Her boyfriend Quinn Michaels, a loving and compassionate man has a sudden mood swing, not typical for his easy going personality a change that threatens

Now I am a fan from the get go. I read the first Mystic Wolves book and was completely fascinated & hooked from the get go. So going into Broken Promises was a no brainer for me. I read it laying in a camper last night squished between my two little boys. I stayed up until I had finished the very last page! I was taken in from page 1. Belinda is as detailed with the characters as she is with captivating every detail of the character's surroundings. It's almost as if you are there and you can ...more

Belinda Boring has a way with words and stories and that is so evident in Broken Promises. This writer has a fantastic imagination and the writing is fast paced and fluid. You are captured from the first page and can’t stop until the book is done and you are left wanting for more.

I picked this up on a recommendation as I had run out of books to read. After reading the blurb I found it a bit slow in the beginning and there was not enough of a paranormal aspect for me. I usually read action based novels with a large supernatural element. What started out as a normal date for Quinn and Bri turned into a nightmare as the Fae unleashed a powerful charm causing humans to become possessed. Rage and violence overtook the city and Quinn became a monster so Bri had to flee. An inv ...more

I love the story idea but I do not love the story. Brianna got on my nerves! She needs to get her head out of the clouds and stop acting like a horny teenager so she can act her age so she can see the bigger picture.

The story seems to drag when it should have spent ahead and spent ahead when it should have slowed down. The supporting characters could have been great but they are way too far in the background. I felt like there was more to the story then just Brianna and Quinn and wanted more of

Belinda does it again! This world she creates is so real. You definitely feel as if the world is one way and the next its unraveling like someone is tugging on a string and all the stitches come undone. It was a wonderful journey and I cannot wait for the next! Bri is so lovably real and full of emotions that I don’t think a person could not enjoy ge

This book was awesome, but let me say, I should have been prepared. I knew better. Belinda Boring rocks you to the core yet again in Broken Promises. This woman can reduce you to a puddle with one of her famous make-out scenes, and then turn around and have you yelling at the characters in the next breath! I love the way she shows you the real Quinn through flashbacks as you are dealing with the awful things that converted Quinn is doing. Just when I thought I knew what was coming, BAM!!

Belinda Boring did it again with Broken Promises. Broken Promises is a new style for Belinda Boring and another winner for sure. Bri and Quinn are on their way to a great date night when Quinn changes almost instantly. The Fae are taking over and have compelled humans turning them into violent evil creatures. All Bri wants is to save the man she loves before it is to late. Will love prevail? A walk on the dark, intense side of love. Can't wait to read the next one.

Belinda Boring never fails to grab me by my eyeballs and take me on a rollercoaster ride of non-stop action and steamy love scenes! Broken Promises is no exception. I purchased this novel last year after reading her Mystic Wolves series not knowing what to expect and I was very pleased to find that Ms. Borings imagination takes me to places I wish were real and creates characters I’d love to know! If you like magic, betrayal, and a kick-ass heroine, then this is the book for you! I cannot wait f ...more

This is an intense exciting violent read. The human population has been corrupted by Fae and they are making humans kill each other. She has learned from her grandmother that she is half Fae. Brianna's boyfriend Quinn has gone from a sweet sexy guy to an abusive monster. And she keeps her head stuck in the past when he use to be different. She needs to come out of the clouds before something happens to her. This has a cliffhanger. Enjoy I did. This is part of the Tall, Dark and Supernatural bund ...more

This book isn't my prefered genre so I was a little sceptical when I first started reading as to whether I would like it or not... I ended up really enjoying it!

It is well written, dark, sexy, full of action and suspense, and the chemistry between the two main characters, Quinn & Bri, is palpable (even when he is trying to harm her).

I will definitely be reading more of Belinda's works in the near future.
