twists and turns - Broken Series by A.L. Simpson

18+ "I can't recommend this book enough to everyone. The storyline is creative and has lots of twists and turns, it is also believable which is so important. There is a sweet love story, a hope for brighter and better things and lots of life lessons." - Robyn, Goodreads


Published: January 2018

Callie McKenzie hadn't had a good introduction to life.

A drug addicted mother caught in the crossfire of a bar shootout saw her dumped in the foster system at the age of thirteen.

Life finally seemed to take a turn for the better when she was offered adoption by a kindly couple but, she knew it couldn't last. Tragedy puts an end to her dream of a happy life when she is taken to the isolated farm of an abusive distant relative.

At the age of seventeen, beaten and bruised, fearing for her life, Callie flees.
In the dead of night, on a lonely road, Jake Prentiss - President of a motorcycle club, finds her stumbling to freedom.

In the weeks that follow she is slowly pieced back together and falls hard for her knight in shining leather. It doesn't last long and tragedy once again strikes.

At the age of eighteen, Callie finds herself alone again and in prison.
Her cousin always said she was a BITCH.
Now, she was also BROKEN. 

A beautiful lady stood when we entered Giselle’s office. She was tall with long, wavy brown hair and gorgeous blue eyes. When she smiled at me, I knew I was going to like her.

"You must be Callie." She offered her hand. 

I gave it a tentative shake. "Yes, pleased to meet you." And, I was.

"My name is Rebecca McKenzie but I would like for you to call me mother."

I frowned, it was a bit soon for me to be calling a stranger, mother. But, I decided it was no skin off my nose. "Okay, mother."

A man stood beside her. He was the epitome of tall, dark and handsome. He stepped forward and offered me his hand. "I’m Patrick McKenzie. You can call me daddy or Mac. I’ll leave it up to you."

I shook hands and lowered my eyes, I felt shy. "Mac, I think, please."

"Mac, it is. Are you ready to leave?"

I glanced at Giselle.

"I know these people are strangers to you, Callie, but we have carefully vetted and selected them to be your adoptive parents. You will live with them for the next six months. During that time, I'll visit regularly and if everything works out, the official papers will be signed making them your legal parents."

"What happens if they decide they don’t want me?" The thought of being shuffled from foster home to foster home terrified me.

Mother crouched down and gathered my hands into hers. "Honey, we have waited a very long time for a child to call our own, we aren’t going to decide we don’t want you."

Her soothing, gentle voice set me at ease and I felt myself relax. I turned to Mac. "I’m ready."

He smiled broadly. "Let our new lives begin."

They each gathered one of my hands and, after bidding Giselle goodbye, we left the office to head home. Home, would it be everything I’d dreamed of?

Broken Bastard (#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...
