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
