Review

Broken Bitch was a short read which I finished in a few hours. I quite enjoyed reading it.

I really liked Jake’s character, he was a man with a heart of gold, who loved his family and was completely dedicated to his MC club. I think Callie’s character was something, I am bit torn about. I half liked and half disliked her character, it was not like I hated her character, I just felt there were certain things about her behaviour that seemed a bit out of place in my picture of an abuse victim.

Callie and Jake’s love story was sweet and beautiful. But I think the best part of the novel was before they came into relationship and after Callie met Jake, the way Jake and his family cared about her and the way she became all hot and bothered when Jake was near was really sweet.

Another thing I loved about this book was Callie’s will to live. She suffered so much, was broken so many times but she still she survived.

I had expected Broken Bitch to be a bit more gritty after reading the synopsis, though it had mentions of abuse but it wasn’t graphic and not something that in my opinion could be considered a trigger. This is something which was good, because I prefer books without triggers more.

There were some parts of the book which I found to be overly emotional. Maybe because I wasn’t been able to connect to Callie well, so I found parts where I felt that way too many emotions were put. Even though this bothered me a bit, but it wasn’t something too major.

Final words

Finally I would like to say I liked reading Callie’s story and would like to recommend it to all romance readers.

Broken Bastard


Broken Series Book 1
Present Day
My name is Tyler Maxwell Alexander. I’m twenty-eight years old. A few
months ago, I had it all. An executive job in a prestigious
investment firm owned by my father. Ha! Yeah, right – father. I’ll
explain about that later. I lived in a waterfront apartment
overlooking the harbor and drove a Mercedes convertible. Then, in the
blink of an eye, it was gone. All of it. Everything, except the
fucking clothes on my back. I was broken. A bastard. Did I mention,
I’m gay? No? Oh well, I have now.

This is the story of how my fairytale life turned to shit in the blink of
an eye…….

This is the story of how my fairytale life turned to shit in the blink of

Each book has a strong focus on story line with romantic interest building
throughout.
