Four years ago, I had everything. All it took was the snap of his fingers and he ripped it out from under me.

Betrayed, by my own father.

His enemies want me dead and old allies want me back in their ranks to help take what's owed. And while I’m trying to figure out what I want, there's her. The one I watch from the shadows, afraid to bare myself to her—the real me.

When Lianne said she was going to write a book about Braiden I did have some misgivings. Braiden was a nasty piece of work and had been responsible for horrible stuff but I was intrigued to see where this book would go. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this book I devoured the pages within a day !
The story starts as Braiden is released from prison after severing 4 long years, he emerges as a different man from the man that went inside, he's had time to think and reflect on his acti

What an amazing book to end the series....though I still reckon there should be another ;) hint hint hehe.

I've loved this series from start to finish and can't find any fault with it. The storyline is gripping, hooks you from page one. The writing flows solidly throughout the book, from scene to scene it works incredibly.

The characters are just as strong in this book as they are throughout. I liked the Braidans attitude changed, how his how outlook

I enjoyed seeing Braeden's growth. He was truly such a villain in the previous 3 books but you see an honest change in him that was really believable. Full review will be on the blog The Book Disciple

5 Brilliant Wrap Up Stars

It's so hard when the characters you love and the stories you love come to an end. Is there really ever an end in an author's mind, who knows, but I am not so secretly hoping the characters from Chastity Falls worm their way back into Lianne's brilliant brain and force her to write more. So on to my final (for now) review of book 4 in the Chastity Falls series.

Oh Braiden, for the first three books, he was my enemy, I often thought of junk punching him, and now, with pri

I was one of those rare breeds that actually saw past the nightmare that he made Jackson and Ana’s lives in the previous books. Saw something more in him. Whether that was his heart, or something smaller like the potential to be something better, it was there and it made me extremely excited when I heard he would be getting h

I recommend that Chastity falls be read prior to this book as you will get more background on Braiden and his life before this. Box set now available.

I loved this book and Braiden's story. Not as complex as Chastity falls with it's suspense, secrets and lies, this was Braiden coming out of Prison and wanting to start a new life but when your family name is Donaghue it seams its not that easy to be yourself.

I love the way this author writes, and I loved this series, I am hoping there will be more.
I love the story of Braiden, he had an attitude in high school and college, but that is who he is. He is the way his father made him. Well after 4 years in prison, he is out. He has no clue as to what is going on, what has happened. He is also a changed man. There is so much emotion in this story, so much of how Braiden became Braiden and so much more as to what type of person he wants to be. What should

Welcome back to Chastity Falls, where the good guys aren't so good and the bad guys usually end up saving the day.

We've read Jackson and Ana's story in the previous books, now we get Braiden's story. One that kept me intrigued for most of this lazy Sunday!!! Braiden's served four years in prison, and in the day of his release, he's not too sure if he will have anyone to meet him.

What family does he have left after the fallout between Jackson and Braiden?

When reading the first three Chastity Falls books, Braiden is clearly an entitled brat with a mean streak. He lives and trades on Daddy's name and reputation, but all that ends when he takes it too far and ends up in prison. So, can Braiden redeem himself when given his own voice?

We start Braiden's story upon his release from prison. His time inside hasn't been easy - thanks to the very name that used to get him his own way back in college. At twenty-six, he's no longer a kid, but he's very unsu

So here we are at the series finale, and L.A. Cotton hasn't let us down. For me, I think Redemption and Regrets could even be the best one.

After going to prison 4 years earlier, Braiden Donohue wasn't exactly one of the "favourite" characters in this series. All the terror and grief he put not only Ana, but also his supposed best friend, Jackson, through in the first 2 books was not the way to win reader love. However, he's served his time, he's survived prison, and

Well here we are back in Chastity Falls for book 4, the final (apparently) of the series. In the previous books Braiden was the upcoming promising replacement for his father. Nasty, vicious, selfish, deadly, Braiden was all the things you don't like in a character. The token bad guy, the villain. And his sister Briony was not really much better, vindictive, nasty, and a total b***h.

And here comes the BUT......

Oh God oh God!!

my heart hurts so bad! I can't express how excited I was when I heard that Braiden was getting his own book! I loved to hate him in the first books, I have a soft spot for villians lol. But now, now I love to love him!!

I loved seeing him go from being a vicious young man that would do anything to get revenge and inflict pain in people's lives whatever the cost. to being a man who had redeemed himself and change his ways! I believed that someone like him would do just that in the

Erm, not quite. But we are with Braiden this time around, instead of Jackson and Ana.
I was really excited about going into this book. I have followed the Chastity Falls series from the very beginning and I am a huge fan of the whole series. This book does not disappoint either.
We have Braiden's story, we get glimpses of when he was in prison but mostly what it's like after he's out. How his life has changed in the 4 years he was locked up.

I've been holding out for this since last year and discovering Braiden had a book coming - he is one of those characters you can't help but love to hate!

Obviously through the CF series we have discovered about Braiden's background so this focuses on his life after he is released from prison and he is thrown straight back into the world he now wants to get away from.

He's a changed man after all of the thinking he has been able to do inside and I actually found myself warmed more to him straight a

I absolutely hated Braiden in the first two books of this series. I remember wanting to reach into my kindle to throat punch the douchenugget. Needless to say, I was a little hesitant to read this but I just had to know if he would redeem himself. He had his work cut out for him, that's for sure.

He was so easy to hate in the other books in this series and I didn't know how that would play in to my feelings about this book. However, time changes everything….even the devil himself!

When issues from both of their pasts get in the way is there a way for them to find happiness? Can Braiden recover from everything that has happened? I was so moved by this story.

It's always sad to see a series you've been following end. I didn't care for Braiden from the moment I met him. He was so horrible to Ana and not a good friend to Jackson. He redeemed himself in this book though. After 4 years of being in prison and completely out of the loop I'm glad he walked out of Oregon State with the desire to be a better person. I LOVED Cara. She was just this light in a dark world. She really helped define this book and helped pull Braiden in the right direction. Even th ...more

“God, I knew we were the same. I knew you understood me,” Cara murmured into my mouth. But I heard her. I heard every damn word, and they hit me like a bucket of ice water. “Stop, we have to stop.” I released my hold on her and pulled away, putting some space between us. The flush in her cheeks had spread down her neck and I wanted to taste her right where her jawline met the underside of her ear, but I couldn’t. I wouldn’t.

Oh Braiden Donohue, who knew you had it in you after all these years? Not me, that's for sure. As a huge fan of the Chastity Falls series and not necessarily Braiden, I didn't think I even cared about his story, however L.A. Cotton made me care and in the end even like Braiden, but not Briony.

We met Braiden Donohue in Loyalty and Lies, the first book in the Chastity Falls Series. Braiden wasn’t a good man. He wasn’t a good man in books 2 and 3. But he did his time and now this is his story. Can a man who’s been a bad guy actually turn out to be ok? Does he even want to?

When we see him in this story he’s just coming out of prison. He’s spent four years there and he’s done a lot of soul

Holy wow! This book, the final instalment of the Chastity Falls collection is one I have been waiting for. We saw how Braiden was evil, manipulative and generally a cold person throughout the previous books, but now we get to see Braiden up close and centre.

This was a bittersweet book to read, as the author states it is the end of Chasity Falls, a series I have fallen in love with. Up until this book, Braiden was a character that I totally despised, and when he went to prison, I wasn’t disappointed. One thing I can say is that the author really showed how Braiden has regrets and wants to redeem himself.

When I started the book, and through the first several chapters, I was a little disappointed, as things seemed too predictable to me, but then a cur
