Product Description

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.......

Wow! I've had to sit here and just ponder for a bit after this amazing story.

The topics in this story are deep and varied, from coming out as a homosexual to family loyalty to greed and misjustice. All beautifully executed in this story.

I have to say I hated Tyler's father straight away and wanted to smack him a good one across the face! Now I'm not normally a violent person but this is the level of emotion that this author evokes.

Tyler is wrongfully imprisoned and what happens there is eye opening but so real. The characters are superbly described as are the scenes and events making you, the reader, feel a part of the story.

I don't want to say too much to give it away however I can't wait for the next book Broken B*tch.

3.0 out of 5 stars Broken Bastard will take you on an emotional roller coaster. 23 May 2017
By MM Book Escape (KMac) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
3.5 Stars
Tyler Alexander had it all and in the blink of an eye...gone! Broken Bastard will take you on an emotional roller coaster. His father hates him, his brother hates him, and there's no love lost between them.

Tyler only gets through each day knowing that one day the family-owned company will belong to him—when that day comes—then he can run it the way he wants. No one in his family knows he's gay because they would go ballistic and disown him. Unfortunately, his secrets aren't quite as secret as he thought.

In one day, Tyler learns that he has lost everything. He has no family, no one he can trust, and no one who believes him. He is in a terrible situation with no end in sight. He is stripped, literally, of everything and doesn't know how—or if—he wants to go on living.

I don't want to go into much of the story because what happens is a major turning point in the story and the reader should get to experience it for themselves. So, I'm being vague. I will say that Tyler was completely gob-smacked and I was right there with him.

Under his current circumstances, he meets Bailey, a man in a similar situation who gives him guidance but more than anything he gives him hope. Their time together is cut short but they have an instant connection that will ultimately be the strength and love needed to support Tyler through his long journey back.

The book cover shows he's behind bars so be aware of trigger warnings as there are a couple scenes of graphic violence. Broken Bastard was very emotional in a lot of places as the author really puts Tyler through the ringer. You could feel the character's pain and despair—his fear like it was real. The author tapped into the emotions of the character and relayed that well on the page.

With that said, there are also places that were unbelievable, or maybe far-fetched for story emphasis, and I had to suspend my disbelief, at times—plus, there's a bad case of insta-love that 9 out of 10 times will throw me out of a story, but... put that aside, and it is a very touching and moving story that I wanted to continue reading and see the conclusion.

The story closes with a well-deserved happy ever after for Tyler and Bailey—and more tearful moments—but ones that were brought on from happiness instead of sorrow. Overall, aside from the issues mentioned, I did enjoy the story.

28 year old Tyler Maxell Alexander had it all, or so it seemed to anyone looking on from the outside. He was wealthy, lived in a waterfront apartment that overlooked the harbor and drove a Mercedes convertible. Although, he had to hide his sexual preference he still had what most men would love to have. However, looks can be deceiving! Tyler works for the most heartless, greedy, short fused tempered boss ever and even worse is the boss's son who is the spitting image of his father and even meaner! Did I mention that he works along side of his father and brother who he hates worth a passion and who actually feels that way! Tyler is just waiting for the day that his father dies so that he can take over the company and make the changes he wants! Sometimes wishing for something that you really want can be more of heartache then a blessing!
After the sudden death of his father, he finds out that he is actually not his son but a product of a rape, that they all knew he was gay, that everything he worked for was now gone, and was being framed from stealing millions of dollars from the company!
Arrested, broke, and has caught the eye of a much bigger man in jail all he wants is to die, that is until he meets Bailey. Bailey helps him and tries to be there for him and protect him as much as possible but when he is paroled out and Tyler is left behind tragedy strikes and threatens to take Tyler away forever!
Will Baileys love and strength be enough for Tyler to fight back and truly get the justice that he deserves?
3.0 out of 5 stars Both of these characters are sweet maybe just a bit to perfect for my tastes 7 April 2017

A Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words Review An Alisa Review:

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 has 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.

Review: Tyler Maxwell Alexander lives a very comfortable lifestyle and is openly gay, but not to his family. He works with his brother at his Grandfather’s business, which their father has handed down. Tyler has had to hide who he is at work and with his family in fear of them finding out. What Tyler doesn’t know is that the family has gone behind his back and planned something so horrifying. You will need to read this book to find out what happens!! I will say that during Tyler’s difficult time, he meets Bailey… his silver lining.
Broken Bastard is a captivating MM romance with a unique and well – paced story line and I was immediately sucked in. The characters are engaging and well developed and they had me feeling emotional throughout the book.
A wonderful story and a definite add to your TBR list!

Tyler starts out about to get everything he always wanted. He is in line to inherit the company, so he can make it better. He has a boyfriend. All seems really good.

Then his father dies, and the truth comes out. So much goes wrong. He loses everything. He meets Bailey as he hits the bottom. Bailey wants to help him learn to live again. Friendship is welcome, but maybe it can be more?

This story has so much going on. Many phases of the main characters life. A true story of support, friendship, and how to persevere when it all goes wrong. I was impressed with how the author handled some very awful subjects. Has a good pace and prepare for mild violence. Great start for the Broken series.
