Review: Amazingly Broken by Jordin Williams

Title: Amazingly Broken
By: Jordin Williams


Life threw Elana a curveball...
Her mother died in Iowa and Elana was left to fend for herself with an abusive and drunken father who couldn't care less about her well being. After years of heartache and pain she graduated from high school and moved to Florida to go to college with her best friend Tiffany.
A new beginning...
That’s where she met Jaxon. He was everything she didn’t need. He was a cocky, tattooed, and a beer drinking musclehead. He was the type of guy that she normally would have avoided given her circumstances but when he offers her a bed to sleep on she can't say no.
She never thought that she would discover they weren't much different from one another and that he had his own secrets and scars he didn’t want revealed to anyone...
our thoughts
Updated this will not be reviewed here, because it was not created by this author. It was also copied from two of the best loved books Easy and Beautiful Disaster. It saddens us that things like this are happening in the book community.

Hi Jackie,

I share your feelings about ‘Amazingly Broken’. It should be called Amazingly Copied. I got a whiff of the fakery and scamming that’s possible over the internet last winter, but this latest scandal that hit in the last few days really pisses me off.

What upsets me is that I’ve been dealing with bloggers and reviewers like yourself since January. You guys do this for the love of books, for the love of good stories, and for the love of good writing.

Your good faith and honest reviews have been used against you by a rip off artist.

Here’s why I’m contacting you:
I’m just putting the finishing touches on a romantic comedy about internet scams that I started this past winter. It’s called The Sock Puppet. It addresses exactly these issues that have come up in the last few days, yeah. But it’s funny as hell.

I was planning on releasing it in November, but from what I’ve seen going on all over the internet, I’m crashing production to get it out within two weeks.

Here is the short description of Sock Puppet

Artie Dunleavy hates having to get his girly on, but it’s the surefire way to get in touch with his feminine side.

Sometimes, after a tough day at work patrolling the streets of The Bronx for the NYPD, he has to take that extra step. With all the crap he sees on the job, writing Happy Ever After romantic stories are a good way to balance it. Maybe he can sell his stuff?

He creates an author persona Desiree Robb, self publishes his book, ‘Angel Mourning’ and waits to see what happens.

And it doesn’t take long for a lot to happen…

A wannabe gangster, who calls himself ‘Carmine’ has come up with a sweet scam to make a fortune off
self published books. So what if he still lives with his parents? He puts together a crew of incompetents, plagiarizes the heck out of a romance novel, hires a computer expert and gets a list of credit card accounts from the FOR REAL Russian Mafia.

He’s going to sell a ton of his book, ‘Desire Robbed’ by Angel Morning. But one small error, a
transposition, wrecks his caper.

Things go unbelievably well for Artie, and really, really bad for Carmine.

Artie’s sales go through the roof; to the point that ‘Desiree’ is courted by a big seven publishing
company. Except Desiree’s a guy. Uh oh. Artie needs a sock puppet. He talks his mechanic Marie into
helping him out. Couple of problems there- she don’t like cops; her ex is a cop! But for a piece of the
action, sure.

A whirlwind week in New York City ensues. ‘Desiree Robb’ aka Marie, who’s Sock Puppeting for Artie
is going on the most popular daytime talk show as the latest DISCOVERY.

She needs a lot of help. Think
of American Idol for books meets My Fair Lady.

Carmine, his crew and the for real mobsters want “their money they stole”. Now!

Sock Puppet- don’t judge a book by its author.

Coming by July 14th, 'cuz' that’s my birthday.
Thanks for your time.
Regards,
Desmond X. Torres
