Overview

A new romance novel by New York Times bestselling author H.M. Ward about sex, soul mates, and deadly secrets.

When Celebrity Magazine declares rock star Trystan Scott the sexiest man alive, I'm not surprised. How can anyone claim otherwise about those blazing blue eyes, rock-hard abs, dark hair, and a totally lickable dimple?

Before the billionaire playboy rose to stardom, we were friends for a while and lovers for a night. Though that was nearly a decade ago, our connection burns brightly in my memory. We weren't a one night stand, not to me.

I can admit it--I got played. To him, I was just another conquest. My beautiful best friend is long gone, and I've moved on. But when fate forces us to meet face to face, everything I felt for him comes rushing back.

Trystan is crashing and burning fast. The press flock like vultures, waiting for him to kill himself or worse. Either way, his mistakes earn them millions.

One night, one time, one word is all it takes to wash away a decade of reason and regret. One secret threatens to push him six feet under, and, when those beautiful eyes turn to me for help, how can I say no?

~FROM BROKEN PROMISES~


Leaning back against the pillows, I smile. For the first time in my life, I'm truly happy. I'm in college, loving my classes, and dating the perfect guy.

Trystan stops suddenly and looks over at me. He doesn't say anything.

"What?" I laugh at the curious expression on his face. It's like he's hoping I'll buy him a puppy.

"You're beautiful. Everything about you is beautiful--your face, your body, your soul." The intensity of his words is palpable. I can feel them wash over me and connect inside me. That connection we've always shared is there and growing stronger.

Trystan's lashes lower as he watches my mouth. He keeps one hand on his guitar and leans in toward me. My pulse races faster as my body heats up. His kisses consume me, lighting me up from the inside out. I don't move. I let him come to me, pressing his body against mine. His free hand traces my lower lip with the pad of his finger before cupping my cheeks and pulling me close enough to press his lips to mine.

It's hard to keep things light with Trystan. Every kiss is heated, making me want more. I'm almost there with him, but I wanted to be sure. I want to be certain he loves me. I want to know he'll stay. He has a reputation that worries me, but he can't fake this, can he? What guy would go through what we've been through together for a quick tryst? I push the worry away. It's been too long, too much has happened to continue worrying about being a notch in his belt at this point.

The kiss ignites and soon my skin tingles all over wanting his hands touching me.

What happens when your first love is the only love you will ever want? That is the predicament that surround Trystan and Mari. Only once a trust has been broken, it hard to regain that heart. H.M. Ward answers the questions that we have all been wondering. Why! What could have happened between Trystan and Mari that caused Mari to harden her heart. This story tugs at every heart string and then some you didn't know you had. Hearts are broken, secrets are revealed and hearts put back together to become one. This novel was an emotional roller coaster. You will literally be pleasantly exhausted from all the emotions it will bring out of you. Holly has given us all the story we wanted. To fall back in love with that amazing voice that is attached to the sexy body. Trystan is the every girls dream. Mari is the only one who we would be willing to step aside for. Can't fight true love.

I am a huge fan of HM Ward and let me tell you this is my favorite book she has written so far. I loved all the Trystan Scott books and was ecstatic to get to read Broken Promises. Broken Promises surprised me on so many levels. HM Ward takes this story and brings so much to it. Mari has hardened her heart, but ultimately it beats for Trystan even if she doesn't want to admit it. This book shows that true love and friendship will never truly die. Trystan was everything I wanted and more. When you see all that is revealed, you will cry your eyes out. More than one secret is revealed which will break your heart, but HM Ward will put you back together again! Be ready to laugh, break, cry and rejoice. Broken Promises is a 5 star read for me!

One of the most emotionally charged novels I have read all year. Trystan had nothing growing up. Now that he is a mega rock star, he has it all! Or does he? Mari's life is on track, she is one of the best doctors in her hospital, and she is in love. Or is she? When Trystan comes crashing back into Mari's life after almost 10 years will they be able to put the broken promises of the past behind them, or are some damages just beyond repair? By far HM Ward's best novel to date. Broken Promises is a follow up to The Secret Life of Trystan Scott series. The characters not only in this novel, but the entire series, are completely relatable they have real issues, hope and heartbreaks. Trystan, Mari, Katie, and Seth could be people you know. I felt every emotion right along with the characters. I laughed when they laughed, cried when they cried and hoped for the same things as them! It was definitely one of those novels you can't put down. The plot was not predictable, there were twists and turns everywhere which made you want to turn the pages faster. This will definitely be one of those novels that you will put on your reread list! I know it’s on the top of mine! A definite 10 star novel!
