All Bree wanted to do was spend her Friday night with the man she loved and adored. Planning to watch a movie together, she never would've believed leaving her home would result in her relationship with Quinn being tested beyond its limits.
Unbeknownst to her, the Fae have been organizing to invade Earth, and their devious plans are culminating now, colliding with Bree'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 Bree finds herself battling to save her lover from himself as he stalks her relentlessly, taunting her at every turn. In a game of cat and mouse, Quinn can't decide whether he wants to seduce her or kill her, breaking her heart further with each encounter.
But fighting for her love isn't her only worry. As the battle ensues, Bree discovers a startling truth about her own heritage that she must come to terms with. Determined to bring balance back, she teams up with others to drive the Fae back across the veil, only to find herself in way over her head. Bree 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.
Broken Promises is the first book in the new Brianna Lane series by Belinda Boring. It's an urban fantasy story about evil Fae invading Earth. They glamour the population to make them violent, and people start turning against each other. When Quinn, the man Bri loves, turns violent – her world shatters. Everything she has ever known has changed, and she will stop at nothing to reverse the hold the Fae have over Quinn and the rest of the population.
The night starts out with Bri and Quinn going out on a date. When chaos ensues, Bri knows she must find refuge. The city breaks out into total chaos, but she knows she can't go home – Quinn will find her there and try to hurt her again. Luckily, Bri teams up with others who are unaffected by the glamour. She also finds out some very shocking revelations about her heritage.
Bri and Quinn have some major chemistry going on. Even when he changes and wants to hurt Bri, the other part of him wants to seduce her. Every time they come into contact, sparks fly – but Bri knows she must stay away from him for her own safety. I enjoyed the happy memories that came to Bri's mind, and liked seeing the “real” Quinn. My heart broke for Bri – her life turns upside down.
There is a lot of action and suspense in this book. The characters are great and it is well written. I think that anyone who enjoys urban fantasy will enjoy this. The ending will make you want to hunt the author down and force her to finish book #2 ASAP :)
Favorite line: "Never mess with a woman whose obsession is romance novels." ~Bri
