Trystan, you take my breath away
I'm trying to put into words my feelings about his book and it's SO HARD! I don't want to go into overused review catch phrases, because it wouldn't do it justice. Sometimes you come upon a story that touches you, that moves you deeply and it becomes more than just a story. It feels so REAL. BROKEN PROMISES by H.M. Ward is such a story. The feelings are raw and pure and the connection between Mari and Trystan is so intense that I fell in love with them all over again, only MORE. As their love for each other matured, so did mine for them. An exquisite conclusion. This is not a simple rock star romance. The story of Mari and Trystan is a story of two connecting souls that were always meant to fuse together but were ripped apart by life. Trystan is one of those characters that is so endearing that you can't help but want to hug him tight and never let him go.
A BIT OF BACKGROUND: For the newbie reader, this could be read as a standalone without any prior knowledge of the characters. H.M. Ward first wrote about Trystan and Mari in THE SECRET LIFE OF TRYSTAN SCOTT, a 5 volume, Young Adult series about how a teenage Trystan came to fame. We've seen glimpses of Trystan and Mari in various FERRO FAMILY stories, as secondary characters in their early 20's. BROKEN PROMISES flash-forwards into their lives, a good 9 years after the events of TSLOTS and a good 5 to 6 years after the current FERRO timeline. Mari and Trystan are in their late 20's.
Very few authors have been able to captivate me, where I go outside of myself and BECOME the story. H.M. Ward is one of those authors and she's done it time and time again.

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?
