'Broken Promises' Book Tour & Review

Broken Promises

What would you do if the man you loved became one of your greatest enemies? Would your love be enough to save him?  

All Bri wanted to do was spend her Friday night with the man she loved and adored. Little did she know leaving her home would result in her relationship with Quinn being tested beyond its limits.  

Fae have been organizing to invade Earth, and their devious plans are culminating now, colliding with Bri's very existence. Using a powerful glamour, the Fae trigger each person's violent tendencies, turning the streets into a battleground and strangers against each other. In a crushing blow, Quinn becomes affected and Bri finds herself battling to save her lover from himself as he stalks her relentlessly, taunting her at every turn.

But fighting for her love isn't her only worry. As the battle ensues, Bri discovers a startling truth about her own heritage that she must come to terms with. She has no other choice but to fight, leading her to a confrontation that will change her world forever - and threaten to leave her with broken promises.

**My thoughts**

I happily jumped on this book tour, because I keep hearing wonderful things about Belinda Boring. As I read the prologue, I got a little scared, because there were kings and queens with fae in a historical setting, which isn't usually my forte. As the story began to unfold, though, I got completely sucked in. The historical aspect of the prologue is important to setting up the story in modern times. And the story is a good one.

Bri is thrust into turmoil as she continually has to decide between saving herself and saving Quinn, her one true love, who is not himself anymore. Honestly, I am not sure what I would do if I were in her situation. I found myself torn between supporting her and her unwavering man who may still be present under that curse, and wanting to smack her for allowing the cursed version to abuse her as she puts herself into continual danger.  There is another man on the horizon, who seems to have some excellent potential.

This story ends abruptly with a cliffhanger. Just like Bri, you will not get all of your questions answered. You won't be sure which path should be taken. And you will also be in shock at the final scene. Now I will be impatient for the follow-up book to be released! 

Author Bio: A homesick Aussie living amongst the cactus and mountains of Arizona, Belinda Boring is a self proclaimed addict of romance and all things swoon worthy. When she's not devouring her latest read, you can find her celebrating her passion for book on her blog The Bookish Snob.

With all that excitement, it wasn't long before she began writing, pouring her imagination and creativity into the stories she dreams. Whether urban fantasy, paranormal romance or romance in general, Belinda strives to share great plots with heart and characters that you can't help but connect with. Of course, she wouldn't be Belinda without adding heroes she hopes will curl your toes.

Surrounded by a supportive cast of family, friends and the man she gives her heart and soul to, Belinda is living the good life. Happy reading!
