An Alisa Review: Broken Bastard (Broken #1) by A.L. Simpson


Rating:  3 stars out of 5


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 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 was a story that kept my attention and there was always something going on.  Tyler finds out that he isn’t really his father’s son and to top it all off he is accused of stealing from his family and is sent to jail.  There he meets Bailey who is to help him transition to prison life, but becomes much more quickly.


Both of these characters are sweet maybe just a bit to perfect for my tastes.  Tyler goes through so much in a short amount of time, but comes out of it just as quickly if I followed the timeline correctly.  Bailey meets Tyler at the very end of his sentence and has to leave him behind.  I had trouble connecting with the characters even though I could feel their pain and worry everything just seemed to come together to easy once the hard stuff was mostly done.  While I have some issues with it I still greatly enjoyed the story and even look forward to the second story in the series and I don’t often read stories with female MCs.  I do however want to point out there were quite a few editing errors (jelly instead of jello and a lot of missing quotations).


The cover art is nice and catches your eye.
