Broken Promise by Tara Thomas is the third and final book in the romantic suspense Sons of Broad series. There were also three prequel novellas that helped open up the series before the full length novels began. Each of the books switches the main characters/couple but the overall story has been built from the very beginning so it really is best to read the series in order.

This third book centers around the oldest of the three Benedict brothers that have been the center of the series. Kipling is

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This is the third installment of the Sons of Broad series and this book required the previous books to feel engaged with the storyline. While I was able to read this in one sitting, and the pace of the content was continual, it felt disjointed at times.

The story revolves around the Benedict brothers and Kipling is the center of this book. He is a confirmed bachelor who wants to figure out the events that have happened to his family but soon ne

I enjoyed this one quite a lot. In fact, I think it may be my favorite of the series. We finally find out the identity of the "Gentleman" and all the "hows & whys" of it all. Both Kipling <--- god awful name BTW. Every time I read it all I could think of was a kipper (lol), and Alyssa were likable main characters. I continued to like Jade as well, and I really hope we see a novella featuring her HEA at some point.

Thank you St. Martin's Press for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

We're down on the last book of Sons of Broad series and I'm thrilled how this ends because I want to know who's The Gentleman. This book is about the eldest Benedict brother, Kipling Benedict and Officer Alyssa Adams. These two buttheads each time they meet and now they're on the same side to find a closure to their love ones who'd been murdered and believe The Gentleman is behind of it all.

Slow growing plot that is finally coming to a head with lots of build up and heat between two characters that were at odds. A little heavy on the romance, a little light on the suspense.

Broken Promise was a thrilling and action-packed conclusion to the Sons of Broad series and I really enjoyed it!

Officer Alyssa Adams made a vow to protect the women of Charleston and that she would one day find out what happened to her older sister ten years ago. After more and more of her cases become entangled with the Benedicts, Alyssa knows she should stay away from Kipling, the eldest Benedict son. But when Kipling’s long-lost sibling is kidnapped, the two must work together to find the cul

Broken Promises is the third and final book in the romantic suspense Sons of Broad series. This series got better each book and I am really happy how the author finished it. I think the main reason I enjoyed this book more than the previous ones are the characters. They were adults and acted in a way that made sense. Alyssa is a police officer and her behavior reflected her profession. Kipling is the oldest brother and is very protect

The third and final installment of the Sons of Broad romantic suspense series was one I was convinced would easily be the best of the series for me. And, it was. Not just because it held all the answers and was the big finale, but because I've been anticipating this romance pair since they were introduced and the sparks started flying.

Broken Promise is the third book in a trilogy that is all one story with the limelight going to each of the Benedict Brothers and the ladies in their lives. It is

Broken Promise is the third book in the Sons of Broad series and it was such a good read. I knew that the story was going to be a romantic storyline between Charleston Police Officer Alyssa Adams and the eldest Benedict brother, Kipling, but the suspense was quite spot on in this installment and that was lovely. It had plenty of twists and turns to keep me wondering what was going to happen next. So, for me, this story was a true romantic suspense story and that was exactly what I was looking fo ...more

I received a free ARC from the publisher.

Broken Promise ended this series with some excitement, and I enjoyed it. I never felt fully involved, though, and I think that's partly because the pace was very slow in places. Also, there were quite a bit of grammatical errors that made my reading flow difficult. Hopefully those errors will not be in the final version.
I also think that this author's writing just doesn't really work for me - the story was good, as it was in the previous books as

The final book in the series is finally here and I couldn't be more happy about it. Finally, we get to see who the gentleman is and why he is killing people and is after the Benedict family. His mind is sick and I am surprised no one found out what a monster we truly was before his identity was revealed in this book. He went cuckoo a long time ago, but you will see more of that when he reveals everything in this book.

For most of this book, I was worried about Jade and her fate. I ended up liking

My Review of “Broken Promise” by Tara Thomas, St. Martin’s Press June 26, 208

The Genres for “Broken Promise” by Tara Thomas are Fiction and Romantic Suspense. This is the third in the Sons of Broad Series. I would suggest that you read the other books, so that you understand this novel better.

Broken Promise by Tara Thomas is book three in the Sons of Broad series. This book does need to be read in order I feel to full enjoy this book and the series. With this book we continue the love story of Ashley and Kipling along with finding out who the 'Gentleman' was.
This has been a good mystery series with a underlining romance story going on.

Broken Promise is book 3 in the Sons of Broad series by Tara Thomas, and it finally brings us the answers we've been waiting for from the start. The Benedict family and those close to them have been targeted and terrorized by the Mysterious "Gentleman" all through this series, with no clue as to why. Through a series of flashback information, we find out who The Gentleman is, and how he came to be what he is today.

Copy received via Netgalley for as honest review

This is the final book in the Sons of Broad, however when I requested this book I wasn't aware that this was book 3, so you will need to read the other books first, as I felt that I was missing a lot - and that is nobody's fault but my own.

I enjoyed the writing, the story flowed and was very action packed. I adored the relationship between the brothers (again though, I know I was missing so much) and love their commitment t0 family.

Received in exchange for a honest review.

I was waiting for Kipling’s story and wasn’t disappointed.

Kipling is the oldest Benedict brother and when you first read about him he seems really cold and distant but he is the opposite. In fact he is smart, sexy and generous. When he learns of Jade there is no anger towards her but wanting to know her. The only person that throws him is Alyssa. She is someone he is insanely attracted to and wants but doesn’t have. In this book, they are in a race of the

This is the third book in the series and I would suggest that you read the previous books in the series or else you might feel lost. There is a lot that happens in them and you might not understand the whole plot without having read them.

This is the third book in the Sons of Broad series, and I enjoyed Broken Promise a great deal. I had eagerly waited for this conclusion of this series.

Broken Promise by Tara Thomas is Sons of Broad #3. This story picks up where the past two books left off and they really should be read first. Knowing that it is no surprise that this is Kipling Benedict and Officer Alyssa Adams story. This has been a long time coming with hints throughout the previous books. The witty banter and battles between Alyssa and Kipling continue but more has developed between them. We get more of Alyssa's story as we continue to find out about the Benedicts, Jade, and ...more

Broken Promise by Tara Thomas is the third and final book in the romantic suspense Sons of Broad Trilogy set in Charleston, South Carolina. This book highlights Kipling, the oldest brother, and police detective Alyssa Adams. They have history, not really that pleasant history, but there is an undeniable attraction as well.

This is the final book in this series of full length and novellas and definitely is NOT a standalone. The author does a good job of tying together the trailing strings from the series and we find out the identity of The Guardian and the back story of how and why everything came about. This story pairs up the oldest Benedict son, Kipling, and even though in the previous stories he has been brash and hard to get to know he has a playful side and Alyssa brings that out in him.

4 Star Review Broken Promise (Sons of Broad #3) by Tara Thomas

Tara Thomas is a new author to me. I had no idea going into reading Broken Promise that this was book three and the final book in the trilogy. I do believe that this is a series that needs to be read in order as I was a lost whilst reading, not knowing the back story that had occurred in books 1 and 2.

I really liked the characters of Alyssa Adams and Kipling Benedict. Running for their lives, whilst trying to track down a missing sibl

The author does a good job of getting us up to date but I do recommend you read these books in order to get the full effect of the mystery build up. The identity of "The Gentleman" is finally revealed as is his motivating factors for the things he does. Jade's circumstances are also fully explained so everything gets wrapped up nicely.

I read the first book in this series, not the second yet so going into the third was a little bit of a leap, but not so confusing that I was lost because I wasn't. This last book was such a great suspense romance hot, tense and twisty just the way I like them. I enjoyed the writing and characters, with lots of action and adventure and it definitely makes me want to read book#2 even though I might already know the answers.

This book was a heart-pounding, action-packed, wild ride. Broken Promise is the first book I've read by Tara Thomas. I really liked the way it flowed, and getting flashbacks into the bad guy's past. My only negative was that I did not realize this was part of a series when I started to read it. I did feel confused a couple times, but mostly was able to read it as a stand alone. I did like it enough to want to read the other books and more from her in the future. It also is a love story, which is ...more

This is the final installment of the Sons of Broad series and in my opinion probably the best of the series. All of the books featured their own couple as the main characters and each couple faced danger in that book. While we knew that the danger was being inflicted by the "Gentleman," it isn't until this book that his identity and motive are revealed. Plus we finally see Alyssa and Kipling act on their mutual attraction that was evident in all of the other books. While I did like this book the ...more

Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author..(netgalley) I have to say that this book was my favorite of the bunch, we finally finally got some answers. And while I had wondered about this character before, since it was barely mentioned I discarded this individual. What I liked about this book, was the going into the past and why this person did what they did. And I am glad that we got an HEA and everyone and everything was tied neatly in a knot..
