I hate writing bad reviews cause I don t want to come across as rude or mean but I have to be honest.I m just truly honestly flabbergasted how this story has so many high reviews The story had a great plot idea but it wasn t executed well and this was probably due to the bad writing The story didn t flow well and the characters were very flat Where the story was supposed to draw emotion I felt nothing I skimmed and skipped paragraphs and pages cause I was so bored and I hated being in the charac [...]
This was one of the hardest, most draining stories I have ever written Lani Foster is a walking survivor of physical and mental abuse From the hands of her very own husband, she has been through so much, and yet was afraid to open herself up and tell her family In fear of something bad happening to the man she s loved since she was a child, Lani continues on in a marriage she think is worth saving Regretfully, her husband, Kade, was doing behind Lani s back other than what she thought.If you en [...]

Ok, I finished this story and had to sit back and think about this review before I wrote it The reasonI liked the plota lot But the writing style of this story screwed with my very simple brain There is a LOT of information crammed into this story and that s what threw me off a little I felt pushed around too much and just couldn t truly connect with the characters, like I wanted But, as I said before, the plot is great Don t let my craziness deter you from reading this story, because obviously [...]
This was A Great book for a first time author I was truly blown away by the story and how she truly told a story about a hard subject with such compassion, truth, heart and redemption This author brought out SO very much in the female lead character, Lani has been through so very much in her marriage, something that NO women should half to endure When you hear her story and see how she progress you go from heartbroken and a sobbing mess to captivated, hopeful and amazed at how wonderful, strong [...]
Wow what a book This book is the first book I have read from this author and I instantly fell in love with this book I did not want to put this book down until I finished it This book was absolutely amazing and such a powerful story I loved all of the characters in this book JR Grant really knows how to suck you in I can t wait to read book by this author There some things in this book I could relate to and it made me cry Lani is an amazing woman in this story who I loved so much Amazing story [...]
Shattered Promises was a heartwrenching but fabulous read by JR Grant This storyline had me from beginning to end At times I was in tears reading what Lani was going through At other times I was screaming mad at her with how she was being so blind to her husband s actions Parker was the highlight of this book and the way he treasured Lani as a friend then lover Absolutely loved this book and would highly recommend
So raw and full of emotionConsidering I read the book in less than 30 hours, I would have to say I LOVED Shattered Promises I honestly think I experienced every emotion possible while reading the book Anticipation after the accident, butterflies in my stomach every time Parker was around, anger for Kade, sadness for Lani and the boys So much emotion There were a few section that I thought were choppy or would have liked a little of the story line but the story itselfAMAZING
oh my wow I loved this book as for kade he is a piece of crap for doing lani the way he did but if had not she would not had found her happy after now as for parker I just love him he was made for lani and the boys lani is sweet and loving and would do anything for her family and friends and well he is sweet ad sexy and loving GREAT BOOK
This book was fabulous Emotional damn roller coaster but a very good read Lani thought she had it all husband and kids best friends and family But when her husband is in a car accident well her world turns upside down Will her and husband make it or will she find happiness in the one place that she wasn t expecting
I rated this story with only 3 stars While I think there was a wonderful story in there, somewhere, I found it very difficult to follow The story of Lani and her abusive husband and her best friend pining for her love could have been a wonderful love story, but the storytelling jumped all over the place making it a difficult read.
I loved this story I felt every emotion the author poured into the characters.
Amazing story.I didn t stop reading until I finished the book Loved the characters and the writing Very well written and the story will capture your heart.
I was gonna rated this as a 2.5 , but after Parker s little epilogue I had to bump it up
I m not sure if I read the same book as everyone who gave this 4 or 5 stars While the overall plot was a good one, it wasn t executed very well The book itself could benefit from a nice run through spellcheck and a really good editor There were many times where it was hard to tell what point in the characters lives we were at because the story jumped around a lot In fact, I think even the author may have not been able to keep track as well, because I think there were several times where things t [...]
From the Prologue we see that a whole lot of shit must have gone down before the story starts up and right away I was drawn in I wanted to know what could have gone wrong between our leading lady, Lani and her soon to be EX husband Kade Foster I thought my husband genuinely loved me, I thought I was his one and only, his pride and joy Little did I know I was wrong, dead wrong, and now because of my stupidity and my blindness, every ounce of hope I had left within me had been demolished Chapter O [...]

Okay let me say this first For Grant s first book, she knocked this one clear out of the park and maybe the parking lot Okay that said let s move into the story.You start out with a Prologue that has you taking a shuttered breath with the intensity of the emotions that Grant was able to elicit from the reader me Lani is broken But it s than that really Have you ever wondered how much you miss that sits right at the end of your nose Sometimes we focus so much on the what s in front of us or behi [...]
Wow This debut novel does not feel like you re reading a debut novel Spoiler Alert I loved the characters in this novel Parker is amazing Life would be perfect if we all had a Parker in our lives He was always there for Lani, even though sometimes it broke his heart To have someone love you that much is rare indeed This isn t your typical boy meets girl and falls in love This is a real life story It s a story that has its ups and downs and deals with real issues It s about a woman that has and [...]

Shattered Promises was a heartwarming story of second chance love This was J.R Grant s debut story and she did a fantastic job of making Shattered promises sincere and true to the heart I always enjoy a love story that spans a lifetime of changes and adversities but somehow manages to never waiver even when those involved don t always see it.JR Grant did a good job of creating characters with viability and believability There were times however, that I felt Parker was too soft and really should [...]
