I hope you enjoy it! View all 8 comments. This was my first book by Belinda Boring and I have to say I really liked it. It's an urban fantasy story about evil Fae invading Planet Earth. But I really did like it. Those evil ol' Fae 'glamour' the population which turns them violent, causing them to turn against one another. The primary characters are Quinn dangerous uber hottie and Bri smart, headstrong, independent female who have great chemistry.
After the Fae do their 'glamour' bit, Quinn, Bri's one true love, turns violent and abusive and her world falls completely apart. Realizing that everything she has ever known has changed, she decides she will stop at nothing to reverse the hold the Fae have over Quinn and the rest of the population. The characters are great and the book is well written.
As the story began to unfold, I got completely sucked in. It was a total page-turner. You know me, I had to know "What Happens Next?!! It's dark and edgy and full of action, something I loved. Belinda did a really cool thing during the story. She would 'show' us happy memories from Bri's mind, where we got to 'see' the real Quinn.
Of course, as Bri's heart was breaking, mine broke right along with her. What a horrible situation to be in, having the person you completely and totally loved with all your heart become someone you hardly recognize. Of course, the secondary characters were well written also. Liam was my favorite Now if Belinda had already released the next book in the series ooh a series! The sizzling chemistry between feisty little Bri, and her oh-so-very yummy counterpart, Quinn heats up the book big time.
Even when he changes and is after Bri, trying to hurt her, there is always another part of him that really wants to seduce her. I mean, all they have to do is come into contact and sparks fly. Sadly Bri knows she must stay away from him for her own safety so it cuts a lot of the juicier moments short. The entire book undoubtedly drips with sexual tension.
You are left always wondering if a steamy, scene-stealing kiss is just around the corner or if you will be taken in a totally new direction. There is a lot of suspense, humor, and romance in this book. You'll find yourself holding your breath in some parts, dying from the suspense. It is a sexy and original read, one I am glad I picked up. I think that anyone who enjoys urban fantasy will enjoy this but it is definitely an 18 or older read. Overall, well done - 4 Stars, 3 Flames!
I received this book in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. Nov 02, Lisa Markson rated it it was amazing. What would you do if the world suddenly went crazy and you find out that you were not who you thought you were. Brianna and Quinn were having the time of their lives do much in love. They were the ying and yang to each other. They balanced the other out until the dark fae decided that humans were verm Lisa's review of Broken Promises By Belinda Boring I received a copy of Broken Promises in exchange for an honest review.
They balanced the other out until the dark fae decided that humans were vermin. Belinda draws you into the drama and suspence of Bri trying to save her beloved Quinn. Can he be saved? Or is it too late? Bri needs to learn more about her fathers family heritage if she us to succeed. With the help of Liam and his friends can the stop the fae? The characters that Belinda developed are swoon worthy and complete on their own. Should Bri forget about Quinn and get Liam? Can Bri's grandmother help them fight the evil that is threatening the human realm?
Ok first off I read this book initially because I loved how this author writes. I am not a fan of the fae under any circumstances but I'm a fan of the author. I initially read the book but I didn't really READ the book I didn't invest myself into the storyline except in my hate of the lead male character Quinn. When I went back and re-read the book I got a very different feeling. Bri and Quinn were so much in love. The way they met was so sweet and caring. Quinn showed a very tender side of himself joking about highlanders and romance books in of all places a bookstore.
Then during day to day things you could see the intensity of their love. He became a putz because of the charm. Does the love go away for either? Love is something that you should never ever take for granted you don't know what tomorrow brings. Don't fling yourself into the arms of someone you think may be good. True love doesn't go away you must keep fighting if it is truly meant to be. I am actually wanting to find more into the story. Would love to see some touching moments between the two. This is a dark story not rainbows and unicorns.
This is a love story that teaches us to fight for our destiny's and live for today cause tomorrow might not be there. I highly recommend this book to everyone for a different take on fate and destiny. Nov 13, Delphina rated it it was amazing Shelves: I am one of those people who either does not read they synopsis or if I do it is way before I get to the book.
I like the surprise of it. In this case, I knew I loved the author and did not even skim the synopsis. I am so glad I read it that way because I never knew what was going to happen. In fact, I did not realize it was even about Fae, which are one of my all time faves.
I know I would have loved it regardless because it was such a different story and had fae in a unique way. Here are some I am one of those people who either does not read they synopsis or if I do it is way before I get to the book. Here are some of the things I loved about it: It was a love that was already there. A love story that had more story left. I loved how the fae's power manifested itself in Bri's world.
They were quirky, but real. They were smart, playful, and knew what was worth fighting for even when they could not fight the way they would have liked. They are a great pair and I look forward to see how they develop throughout the series. That is all I have to say on that ;. This book was a great start to what I believe will be a phenomenal series!
If you like your para with adventure, romance, and a bit of mystery, this book is probably for you. This is definitely an 18 plus read, so if you are under 18, I would look elsewhere to get your fae fix. May 18, Paula Genereau rated it it was amazing. What do you do when the man you love turns cold. How does it make you feel when he was just a romantic guy the other day. I just couldn't believe some of the things that went on in this book. Oct 14, It's Super Mushroom! Shouldn't have picked it up and now I have to wait for the 2nd book. I'm not a patient person. Broken Promises is centered around the fae and the human world is drastically altered because of their actions.
Broken Promises begins 3. Broken Promises begins with Bree and Quinn, a couple very much in love. Bree is a fairly clumsy girl and Quinn is her rock. The world is no longer the same and her lover loses his humanity to cruelty and violence. Bree has a very difficult time accepting the new circumstances, and she is stubbornly determined to try to save Quinn. Quinn has been influenced and taken over by the dark Fae General. He has become cruel and determined to turn Bree to the violence with him.
However, Bree is not alone, she learns that there are others who can resist the fae influence and these others are Guardians that try to protect the world from the Fae. The Guardians help Bree find out who she really is and give her some hope. I really like the premise of Broken Promises.
I am intrigued by the Fae, how they want to take over the human realm, and they use cruelty and violence to do it. I am a bit unsure about Bree. I did feel for Bree though when it came to Quinn. The thought of losing the person you truly love is a major theme of the book, and the emotions come through. With a story involving lost love, alternate worlds, and violence around every corner, Broken Promises sets the foundations for what promises to be a thrilling new urban fantasy series.
There is a lot of action throughout Broken Promises, a detailed plot, and background on Bree and her past. The flow of the story did not feel seamless.
Brianna Lane Series by Belinda Boring
However, the characters grew on me and I really did enjoy the story. I will be reading the next installment in this series, I am looking forward to it. Readers, if you like urban fantasy stories, especially urban fantasy stories centered around the Fae, then you should consider giving Broken Promises a try.

Somehow once they leave the movie Quinn manages to fight the compulsion affecting everyone else.
Bri sees 2 men she just knows are not human and she wants to hear what they are saying. What she hears terrifies her. Then Quinn turns again, she can tell not only by his actions, trying to choke her, but because his brown eyes are now a bright blue. Quinn had promised never to hurt her, thus the title of this book. She runs away but has no where to go. She ends up spending the night in an alley hiding from all the turned people.
The next day people like her, not affected,find her and take her to safety. She can be turned but it takes more to do so. She has a keepsake in her apartment that she has to find and wear always to prevent being taken over by the evil. She becomes friendly with the others like her. But her primary goal is not theirs, hers is to find Quinn and somehow save him.

He finds her several times and violence is always the result, but she just can't give up on him. Liam is similar to the old Quinn, wanting to protect her, and frequently the one who has to fight Quinn to get her free again. The ending leaves the future hanging. Bri makes a choice that changes her life.
Was it a good or bad choice? Only time will tell, the book doesn't. Nov 13, Niki rated it it was amazing. Bri is very in love with Quin and she was so looking forwards to their date night, a;though it started out good, it went all so wrong a little later.

Your experience the emotions that the characters are having and hoping it will get resolved. The story is unique in a genre that has many authors with great books. This author is in my opinion right up there with Karen Marie Moning.
If this author hones some more of her skill, I see great things happening in her future! This story is very well written and HAWT!! I adore the cover art because it conveys several scenes in the book. Bri is a clumsy girl who is in love with a hot man named Quinn. They are made for another and they equal out each other. Bri is going out on a date with Quinn when he starts acting strange, but they continue on to the theater. During the movie all heck breaks out, Bri is left confused and torn at what to do.

Quinn and Bri listen to the men to find out what is going on. Quinn starts acting strange and Bri is left running for her life.

Nov 05, Phaedra Seabolt rated it really liked it. The world is under attack. No one saw this one coming until it was already happening.
The method of attack is so overpowering that even those that figured out what was going on had little to no time to defend themselves against it. The human race stands the chance of being annihilated by their own hands without understanding their actions. How could this be happening? A handful of people can answer this question only because the secret that the Fae truly existed on another world has been kept a The world is under attack. A handful of people can answer this question only because the secret that the Fae truly existed on another world has been kept a secret from Earth.
Bri never knew what she was until the Fae came to her world and took over her boyfriend's mind. She thought she was just a super clumsy human who got lucky enough to fall in love with an amazing man. Then her world came crashing down around her as her boyfriend and the other people around her suddenly grew very angry and violent. No one seemed to be able to control their torturous tendencies. Even Bri was struggling to maintain her normal composure. After nearly being killed, she learns who she really is and why she has a fighting chance to fight the charm affecting the humans. Will Bri be able to continue fighting the charm?
Will her boyfriend ever be normal again and not try to kill her? Will the human race be able to withstand the magic of the Fae? Only time will tell. I am very intrigued about where this story is going to go. You will not get all the answers in this one story, but Belinda Boring certainly knows how to leave you wanting more.
