Who was Jimmy Hoffa and where is he buried?
That question has been the best kept & unsolved mystery for decades. Aleatha has a pen that just spins webs, strong inescapable threads, silky and sexy alluring. Full of hot, sigh-worthy romance and adrenaline rush of a good crime thriller.

In this story too she has the same tone of unsolved mystery that

Araneae McCrie was born into a dangerous life shrouded in secrets and lies. She’s finally finding herself and uncovering her truths now that she’s in Chicago with Sterling Sparrow, the man who bulldozed his way into her life. The longer she’s with him, there’s no place she’d rather be than with this beautiful, intense, overbearing man she’s come to think of as hers.

There's a saying I've grown up hearing and I repeat it to this day - 'Everything in darkness must soon come to light'. I feel that this was most definitely true in this book. All of the secrets and all of the lies were finally out in the open and Araneae's life was in more danger than ever.

Answers abound in this conclusion of the Web of Sin series. Amidst the drama and the danger, Sterling and Araneae grew closer, making them more of a united force than ever. Nothing and no one was going to take

Thank you Aleatha for sending this copy even when I told you that I would not be able to review on time for the release!

It’s my favorite of the trilogy!

I really liked the other ones of course but what I adored in this one was putting all the jigsaw puzzle pieces together to guess the truth!

In this last installment we are left with wanting to guess what happened to drive Aranea to the Marsh when she was a baby.

YASSSS!!!!! Ahh! I LOVE IT!!!

All the FEELS, all the ANSWERS, all the suspense and thrills and the roller-coaster you NEED. It's the perfect ending to this trilogy. Sterling is the ultimate hero--he's always there for Araneae, always protecting her, always deliciously sexy.

It's the book you've been waiting for. Block off some time, because you won't be able to put it down!

Sterling + Araneae forever!

The Promises of Answers to all the Secrets and Lies in the Web of Sin Series came full circle. There were so many answers that needed to be answered, I wasn’t sure it could be done. But this ever talented author crossed every t and dotted every i and completely shined the light in this dark and twisted love story.

Araneae’s past is fully revealed in Promises. There are many revelations that she must face and Sterling is always at her side. Her safely and well being is always fr

A sigh-worthy finish to a breathtaking series.

Sterling Sparrow is just the right balance of overbearing brute and devoted hero as every secret is exposed, every lie resolved, and every promise kept. It's a glorious ride.
Great book!

This book was so good I 've been looking forward to finally getting the answers I wanted from this series. There have been so many twists and turns going on this series and this book was no different. Araneae and Sterling haven't had an easy ride. They have had everything thrown at them and in this book it's just the same. My heart breaks for Araneae she doesn't know what is goin on the secrets and lies just keep coming. It's only Sterling that is keeping her sane. I luv that man!

What an incredible series! In this last installment, Promises are made, Secrets unravel, Lies are revealed and the Web of Sins beautifully and thoroughly get disentangled.

"A man’s word is either—”“Either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon.”

Aleatha Romig 's tone once again worked her magic, her characters evolved and at the same time stayed true to themselves. Sterling's protectiveness won me over and Araneae's strenght and increased self-confidence were well handled.

I'm still in book heaven after reading Promises. The secrets, the lies it all ends here and I couldn't ask for a better way to end this intriguing, mysterious trilogy. Sterling Sparrow proves to be a swoon-worthy hero by that way he takes care of things just to protect Araneae and the people she loves. He's a man of his word. While Araneae continuous to amaze me how strong, resilient she is as she faces life's challenges. The question now is, will they still be together after knowing the truth?

Thrilling does not come close to describing this book. Promises is the conclusion to the Web of Sins trilogy and I'm happy to have reached the end although I will miss the characters. From the beginning this series is a wild ride traveling 90 mph the entire way. The book is fast paced and will keep you guessing the entire time. Aleatha Romig will bespell and dazzle you with this book. Be sure to clear your time schedule because you will not want to put the book down.

Worth all the wait and more!! WOW!

Promises definitely delivered. We get all the answers we wanted, but now without a bit of suspense and drama mixed in beforehand.

I am not sure what I can say without giving too much away.

Sterling definitely proves his worth in protecting Araneae at any cost. Araneae proves that she is strong and has no problem heading any obstacle with determination and a fierceness I have come to love.

Aleatha definitely knows how to give us the action, suspense, drama and roman

Promises ~ book 3 in the Web of Sin series by Aleatha Romig does everything it say’s on the cover. This book promises to answer all your questions from the other two books, it gives you a better insight into the man that is Sterling Sparrow and who Araneae really is.

I was so pleased to finally get the ARC of this book so I could continue my obsession with this couple and these people. This book blew me away with the in-depth way the underground cartels worked.

A thrilling ride and what a suspenseful conclusion to the Web of Sin series. Finally the answers we are craving. With the perfect mix of romance and mystery... the steamy chemistry palpable... the unraveling of the secrets unparalleled...

3.5 Yes Mr. Sparrow Stars.

I think I don’t need to elaborate on the characters and chemistry in the last book of the trilogy as it is still hot and they still mesh well together. The conclusion has come to Kennedy Hawkins/Araneae McCrie’s past through all the secrets and lies she will come to know what has finally happened.

Sterling Sparrow is his usual alpha, overprotectiveness king of the underworld so there isn’t much that I can add to that other that he pulled a dick move. Araneae was far too

Delicious is the only word I can think of to describe this book. It kept me enthralled - as do all Aleatha Romig's books - but I was surprised how much I was rooting for Sterling even though he admits to doing terrible things. This story has as many strands as a spiders web with Araneae at the middle. The story is full of twists and turns that kept me enthralled from beginning to end, it was wonderful conclusion to a wonderful series!

Sinfully delicious.
All I have to say is Sterling isn't as bad as he thinks. He's a dark man. Alpha through and through, but the man has a soul and in the center is his woman.
An epic page-turner.
Promises is the third and final book to this series. If you haven't started it, you are missing out on some good words.

There was so much happening in this series and I couldn’t wait to get all the answer. Was Sterling truly a good guy? Will Araneae truly find out where she came from. Well guess what? I’m not telling you so HA! I don’t want to give anything away, just know Sterling is every bit still bossy, sexy, protective and amazing.

There was this web of tangled secrets and lies, weaving through them all was a fun ride. This book was just as good as the other two in the series and I am so glad I read it. Aleat

I love Aleatha Romig, I am glad to see her return to her dark roots. This is truly NOT as suspenseful as Consequences nor Infidelity. This series combines both her light and her dark in my opinion. If you have only read her dark you might be slightly disappointed, if you have read her light your might be disappointed. If you are thinking of trying her other side this is the perfect series to start with to bridge her 2 sides.
