"You're still my girl, right?"

SQUEEEEEEEEE!! I adored this book!! It was so different than I was expecting and took me by surprise in the best of ways with an amazing twist that absolutely made the book for me!! Truly, a gorgeous, heart-melting love story!

Without giving anything away, I'll just give you a little intro to the story...

I die a thousand deaths.

Kimberly Lauren really outdid herself with Beautiful Broken Promises. It is much different from her first two books (especially the first half), but that twist, that secret Lane has been carrying, hiding from everyone he knows and loves is something I never saw coming. My review will be as vague as possible, because I think going into this story blind is the best way to go. That first 10-15% held such impact for me, and if I knew what w

This one definitely went a different direction then the rest of the books in the series. And I honestly I didn't mind the direction. But if I'm being completely honest, most of the book...

I don't know why, but I just couldn't get in to this one. Not sure what was missing for me.

We met Lane in Broken #2, and he was definitely an intriguing character and I was definitely shocked to see what he was hiding and what happened to him in his past.

Beautiful Broken Promises is very different then the other books in the series. The “gang” has graduated college and are all back in Texas. The book starts out like the other books, Lane is having a drunken one night stand when he receives a sketchy sounding phone call that he needs to leave.

This is the point I go back and read the blurb…so Lane has a secret.

I had a lot of theories when I was reading this and I didn’t end up guessing this one. I love being surprised in a book, and I really, rea
I love this book. I love this series. I love this author.

I really felt like we, the readers, got to see Kimberly Lauren grow with this series. Every book released got a little bit better than the one before it. You all know how much I loved Beautiful Broken Mess, so you can only imagine how much I love this one. Her writing has improved greatly since Beautiful Broken Rules - creatively and structurally. It was awesome to see her growth. While I am sad that this series has come to an end, I am so

"You know I thought when I truly fell in love that my mind would only think about that girl and there wouldn't be anything else. But that's not how it works at all. Everything around you becomes important because all of those things could potentially take you from me."

This book was an unexpected yet wonderful surprise! I read Kimberly Lauren's Beautiful Broken Rules a while back and fell in love with it, leading me to read anything that woman writes.

I loved Lane from the moment he was introduced in the 2nd book. Finally reading & understanding his story just made me love him more. I love all the boys but I gotta say Lane definitely won the spot for #1 in my heart. There were so many elements & truths can out. I love when kids are in involved so that made the story more fun. I want to thank Kimberly Lauren for creating these characters & introducing them into my life. I'm hoping for another book/novella about their vacation & ...more

“Beautiful Broken Promises” is the third book in the “Broken” series by Kimberly Lauren. As all the other books, this is one is unique, interesting and sexy. The first one (Beautiful Broken Rules) will always be my favourite but I swear…everything Kimberly writes…is absolutely amazing!

I will have to keep this review short, because I want this to be a SPOILER FREE REVIEW.

This is what I have to say. I’m a fan of the series, but what I love most about this series is how different each book is.

Beautiful Broken Promises is a little darker and so deliciously yummy. I gobbled up the pages and read it in one sitting.

You do not have to read the series in order to understand, but if you are like me, I always like to start with the first book first.

This book was just… WOW! It grabs you, like grabs your head, heart, emotions and dare I say all the tingly nerves in between, and sends you on a fantastic journey. I love the relationship of the characters!

I am keeping this review vague as to give anything away would just ruin the mystery of Lane Parker... but his tale is very different from the previous two books. This is a much more heartfelt tale, but Kimberly Lauren has totally upped the steam factor in this touching read.

So as Lane Parker has his tale...

I will admit he has intrigued me since his presence in Audrey's life. He has always been so protective, so good hearted, and yet so distant. From his moody ways to his disappearing acts, I ha

Lane is keeping a secret from his closest friends, a past that he has not given up on - a promise he isn't willing to break. When he gets the call in the middle of the night that a new chance has come up, nothing would keep him away. He knows that he must find him, if he ever has hope of finding her.

This is a very special book, and takes a really different direction from the earlier books in the Broken series, bringing us the story of Lane *clutches heart*.

Lane was introduced in the last book, Beautiful Broken Mess, and I loved him instantly. As the best friend / big brother figure to Audrey, he proved himself to be strong, loving and incredibly protective. He also had a bit of the mystery thing going on where he would disappear for a week at a t

Beautiful Broken Promises es el tercer y ultimo libro de la serie Broken de Kimberly Lauren y narra la historia de Lane, personaje secundario en el libro anterior y Reagan.
Desde que conoci a Lane en Beautiful Broken Mess supe que amaria su historia y sinceramente fue una buena lectura, a pesar de que me imaginaba otro tipo de trama : divertida, tierna, sentimental, con un poco de drama, etc.
Reconozco que la gran razon de que me gustara tanto la historia fue por el personaje de Lane, me parecio u

4 "This is crazy." Stars

Really enjoyed Lane's story in this series. For me, it was as good as the first two books but still a great read. Told from both Lane and Raegan's points of view, readers get a very different story from Kimberly Lauren. It goes outside of the box of this series in a big way and delivers nicely.

Full review to come.

I have been a huge fan of Kimberly Lauren’s Beautiful Broken series since the very first book, Beautifully Broken Rules. The second book, Beautiful Broken Mess, was hands down my favorite. I loved Jace Riley and his very complicated love for Audrey. But the scene stealer in that book was Lane Parker for sure. Audrey’s BFF and protector in the years she spent between the Riley twins, Lane was charismatic, sexy as hell, funny, and was most definitely the guy you wanted on your side (and in your be ...more

Well... It would not be a Haya review without having some issues with a book now would it?! ;)

I LOVE the turn which this book seems to have taken i mean wow. I honestly liked the plot, i was shocked when i found out who is Kate i loved Lane Parker i mean WOOHOOO HOAWWT MAMA!

I think that sometimes the best way to go into a book is blind and Beautiful Broken Promises is one of those books. When I started this I had no idea what to expect aside from loving the first two books in the series.I'm purposely keeping this review short and vague so nothing is spoiled for you. You do not have to read the first two books although I recommend them this is a standalone book.

This book seriously hit everything you can want in a book. Ms Lauren's books keep getting better and better. She hit this story out of the freaking park!!

Oh goodness!! How do I write a review for this?? Lane oh Lane! Loved him fiercely!! He had a rough start in the beginning but man oh man he redeemed himself 1000x times over. I also loved the h in this story!! It's pretty rare to absolutely have no qualms with the h. She nipped the problems in the bud, didn't take crap from anyone..she was great!

With a love for the other books in this series and their characters, I knew I had to read Lane's story. I went into Beautiful Broken Promises basically blind due to the vagueness of the synopsis, and I now know WHY the synopsis is so vague and am so happy it is. I wouldn't have missed the shock of what awaited me for anything. Everyone should go into this story blindly to experience the intensified twist in Lane's story.

My favorite thing in the world is when an author can make me fall deeply in love with a story from the very first page. But when they can do this with their third book in a series, I am blown away.

Beautiful Broken Rules is one of my favorite books. I have re-read that book maybe 5 times. The character development, the writing, everything about it is just plain brilliance.

Beautiful Broken Mess was a great follow up and the writing was even better. But Jax and Emery will forever out shine Jace a

Warning: Potential Spoilers

Maybe I’m being cynical, or jaded, or real life has just been better than fiction lately but yet another romance bites the dust and I think I know why. Children. Babies. Tiny humans.

I have nothing against kids – in fact, I’m known to get a bit mushy around them. But only when they do cute stuff. The minute there are tears, burps, accidents, tantrums, I am out of there quicker than you can say ‘SOS’. Before you give me ‘that look’, know that I am 25 and pretty

I love the flow of the story. I love the characters and those 2 adorable kids!
I didn't notice that I was tearin' up when she was telling him what she had to endure to protect the kids...damn!!

There was a time that I wanted to drop this, probably around 10 or 20% of the story. But the story peaked up and there was no going back.

The story is more about the 2 main characters getting along and acting as parents to both kids. Boring right? But,no, the story is
