Winter Paige is quickly becoming a must read author for me, two books released and both five star reads. Love triangle, Suspense, Action, Erotic, Dark, Forbidden Love, all that rolled into one amazing read!

Broken Trust picks up where Shattered Lies left off, this book is book two in a duet and must be read in order, and let me tell you I couldn't believe what was taking place. NO SPOILERS will be given but I can tell you that this book had my emotions all over the place. I was happy that Eliana

5 fantastic stars!! Wow I adored book one but book two hit me in the feels!!

This is book two of the “Devastation Duet” and can NOT be read as a stand alone. This was the continuation and ending of Eliana’s story. What I noticed at the end of the book is their will be more books attached telling some of our favorites stories. I am so pumped about this!!

This book was so freaking good!! I am still in awe that this was the authors debut duet. I ate these two books up. I read them in less then 24 ho

I seriously could not wait to jump into the second book in this series. The first one had me hooked and this one? All the way absorbed. I was meant to be cooking Christmas dinner but...I may have claimed a tummy ache and locked myself in the bathroom for an hour, just so I ould read it without interruptions.


I loved her in book 1,

I’m conflicted on rating Broken Trust.
I’ll try to explain why I gave it 4 stars...
Broken Trust starts out we here Shattered Lies ended.
Eliana is in shock/mourning/grieving from a horrible tragedy.
Andrew, Jaxx, Abel and Costin have done something to her to help ease her pain at least they think they have.
E sneaks out to run to Jonah. Swoon-worthy Jonah!
This is where I start saying “WTF” to Eliana.
In Shattered Lies she was fearless, strong and an awesome heroine. Her virtue meant something.

What a ride

I LOVE/hate this books. Winter Paige did an amazing job playing with every single one of my emotions. Love, destruction, brokenness, torment, evil, happily ever after?

What a Great Ending..............or is it really over?

Broken Trust is the second book in the Devastation Duet. It starts where Shattered Lies ends and boy does it continue the story. As with Shattered Lies the author has maintained the same level of attention to detail of both the story-line and the characters. It is well written with a number of twists and unexpected things happen which continued the emotion and element of danger and intrigue.
This is a must read duet!!!

"She is beautiful. She is flawless . She is a mirage. She is destruction and chaos. She is poison. She is the ruin of all that is good."

This book had me feeling all kinds of emotions!
It picks up right where the last one left off. I was shaking in anticipation to find out the fate of Eliana. It was so heart breaking the way all the characters actions soo very badly reflected and affected the others, it was the worst game of tug -o- war of the hearts. Then I was disgusted and irritated with Eliana

This is the conclusion of a duet so if you haven't read Shattered Lies you should stop here before my review spoils it all for you. Broken Trust continues the story after seeing Eliana's world in tatters by the end of book one. She has the spirit of a brave warrior but after her heart is eviscerated can she ever be whole again. The emotional journey this story took me on never ended, days after I'm still all up in my feels not sure what just happened. I connected so completely with their beauty ...more

This second installment took place with Eliana waking up from a drug induced stupor a few months after losing Joshua. Weakened, angry, and determined to make a grand statement, she fled the only family she trusted.
Betrayed, lied to, and distraught, her fighting spirit didn't disappoint.
While I abhor cheating, Eliana does a lot of hookups with men who are in love or half in love with her, I never hated her for it. Interestingly enough, neither did Jaxx, Costin, or Abel.

Eliana certainly came into her own in this book. The pampered Princess showed some grit and passion.
I underestimated her fire, so it was good seeing her incinerate her enemies and taking control of her life.
I'm still unsure about her, yes she changed but I still found her hard to connect with if I'm being honest. I'm sure some readers will absolutely love her. 

The second part of the Duet flowed well and was full of twists with a few suprises, it was every bit as dark and shocking at times which

Broken Trust fell a little behind Shattered Lies, maybe because Elaina was not as stong a character as in book one where she was a force to recon with even from an early age! In Broken she was docile although she did go through many life changing events. Costin, Jaxx and Abel seem to be more in the forefront and leading the charge in this one. Andrew is a disappointment altogether, he saved Elaina but then left her raising to others. This has been a wonderful duet, plot and storyline is great an ...more

Broken Trust for me was incredible! I just thought WTH is with Eliana! I fell in love with her in Shattered Lies, and in Broken Trust I thought I misread at first, but NOPE I read it correctly. When she "snuck" out to rendezvous with Jonah...…well my heart plummeted and soared at the same time. I was confused as I thought that virtue meant something to her. I realized why as it became clear but honestly I was a bit disappointed with this decision, but I am not the writer. I also believe that Win ...more

Again it took me a minute to get into the story but once I did it flowed well. It didn't have a bad start but a slow start. Eliana isn't necessarily a character I enjoyed. She was a bit of crybaby and childish, which she is a child. Shes also a little self centered. The other characters in the story carried her most of the time and drove the story. The beginning of the series didnt start as a reverse harem but that's how I feel this book was portrayed. Eliana's story may be over but the main poi ...more

Oh my god. I swear Eliana's character got on my last nerve! The beginning of the book was great! Yes i expected a broken girl. She lost her fiance moments after making love and sharing promises of forever. She needed time to put her life back on track to mend her broken heart but what does she do? She acts like a child. She knows damn well who her father is and what he is capable of but ohh let me go down to the basement since no one has time for me. Let me see all the debauchery for myself. Let ...more

Winter Paige you are wicked queen and i bow down to you!! Broken Trust is book 2 in Devastation Duet and end of this duet. Oh my god where do i start about this book!! Winter literally slayed me with her writing in this book. So much pain oh god i was sobbing throughout the book. This hurts so good. Literally killed me but this is the best kind of torture. Holy moly what a freaking rollercoaster of emotion and heartbreak. Such a beautiful gut wrenching journey that you don't wanna miss out!!!

Paige killed it! Absolutely killed it.

Broken Trust is even better than Shattered Lies. I once again was ensnared by Paiges world and her characters. Eliana, Costin and Jaxx are some of my favorite characters ever. The lengths that each go to in order to keep Eliana safe is astounding. I'll admit I couldn't have been more happy with Eliana. Everyone underestimated her, and they shouldn't have. It's an amazing conclusion to an outstanding duet.

This duet is just that good. Everyone please take a c

This is the conclusion to Eliana story. The first book I thought it was a introduction to MC series, but after reading the duet, it is not. The boys fascinated me, especially Jaxx. I wasn’t sure why Eliana changed so much in this one. She was a strong character at first, but kind of dwindle for me. I like the writing style of the author, I’m hoping her next female characters stay strong, and fight like no one business. This was defiantly an emotional ride. The Series title definitely perfect, it ...more

“The beats of my heart may have been his, but the silences between... you filled those.”

Winter Paige, you are an evil genius! Broken Trust made me feel everything. Sad, mad because boys are idiots sometimes, happy because THAT ENDING! It’s the perfect ending for the duet. Also, that quote is just a small piece of how amazing this book is. That line just made my heart melt, and it did for almost the entire book. Everyone go read this book because it’s so amazing

Words simply cannot explain the brilliance of this story. This is such an incredibly written, heartbreakingly beautiful story. I laughed. I cried. I may, or may not have screamed my frustration at my kindle. I was hooked from the beginning and didn't want to put it down. Eliana's attitude and sass is perfection. You'll fall even more in love with 'her boys' (as she calls them). An absolute must read. Highly recommended.  ...more

Broken Trust is the second part of the Devastation Duet. This book is the continuation of all the feels from the first. It is filled with twists and turns and things that you just don’t see coming. It is a real rollercoaster ride and had me hooked. I could not put it down. I loved how strong Eliana becomes and how “her boys” Jaxx, Costin, Jonah and Abel love and protect her. I can not wait to read more from Winter Paige.

3.5 stars for me . This is my second book by this author. I was disappointed . Elaina, what happened to our fierce little warrior. She changed so much and not in a good way. I just didn’t like her in this one. The men though were swoon worthy. Elaina had the opportunity to really be a bad a$$ but she didn’t. She whined a lot. The guys shined. Why are all the characters so broken and tragic? It got exhausting. I don’t regret reading this story.

This is the second book in the series and it was just as amazing as the first. The mc, Eliana, has really come out of her shell and she's ready to take on all of the monsters.
This book had me all over the place with emotions, and man some of the scenes were HOT.

If you like a badass mc, lots of alpha men, and a bit of heartache, this is the book for you.

Gah! This book! So many feels! I fell in love with Jonah. I love E’s family unit, Cos, Jaxx and Abel. I love how E found her inner strength and came out swinging. There are some seriously hot scenes. (Wipes drool from mouth) The ending was amazing and left me wanting more. Can’t wait to read everyone’s stories!

3.5 Stars for this one....

Alright, I had a harder time with this one. The writing and characters in this book were just as amazing as the first one but the ending is what got me. I just can't handle that he is basically second choice because the first one is no longer there. I can't believe that everyone is just okay with it. I just don't know about this one.

I liked book 1 than book 2..
I hated that E suddenly became a wh*re at the beginning, it just didn't make sense!
Apart from Joshua, I prefer Jaxx > Jonah >Costin!
I cannot wait to read their spin-off!

I knew it. I knew it. I obviously didn't know everything but I had a feeling. These characters just consume you. Some you will like more than others but all in all it was fantastic
