Release Blitz & Book Review: The Broken Puppet by Amo Jones

The Broken Puppet
by Amo Jones
The Elite Kings Club #2
Genre: Dark Romance/Romantic Suspense
Release Date: July 18th, 2017


“I thought I knew who I was, but I was wrong.”

The Silver Swan

1. A girl who is tarnished. Tainted. One who does not fit into the confinement of legend.

The Silver Swan

2. Madison Montgomery.

I was lied to.
I was cheated.
Resigning to pick up the scraps of empty memories and disarrayed thoughts, I left. After finally cutting the strings of manipulation, I resorted to do what I’ve done since I was a child, something my father drilled into my brain since I could handle my first rifle.
I’m a mere shadow of the girl they all knew.
Lies and deceit change you. They alter your entire outlook on life.
I’m Madison Montgomery, and I want to play a game.
Here’s what happens when I win.

Riddle me this, Mads.
What goes bump in the night,
but is something you can’t see with sight?
You may run, and you may hide.
Our happily ever after will be like Bonnie & Clyde.

My review:

The book continued where book 1 left off and I liked that a lot but while Mads and Tatum were on the run, the story seemed to be on a standstill because the entire original story centered on Mads and the Kings and whatnot so I agitatedly awaited the return of the boys.

It was a rather slow progress of the story as there were more riddles and questions but hardly any answers. I liked the book better closer to the end as there was at least some action going on and a deeper insight on Bishop and some of the kings but at the end I felt like I had more questions than after the first book and I seriously hope they will all be answered in the next book.

Some things felt a bit repetitive, like Madison's thoughts. And I wasn't fond of her in this book at all. Everybody loved her, even when it was hate love. I got the feeling that she's more like a queen rather than the silver swan. But what do I know... not much, that's for sure.

Even now, I'm still completely in the dark regarding the Kings and anything else for that matter which is frustrating but not something that bothered me most. (Somebody please explain to me the real purpose of the Kings because they acted different every few seconds.)

Anyway, I was actually really annoyed that every man (and I mean EVERYONE! except her dad of course) wanted to feel her up and get down and dirty with Mads. They all lusted after her as if she was the only waterhole in the desert, and she acted on every one of them. Sorry if I’m just not down to that. I didn’t mind it so much in the first book but it should stop at some point because she really needs to grow up now and have some dignity.

This book was hard to rate for me because I was blown by the first one though the second book brought only more riddles and not so much a story; it also wasn't as suspenseful. It was a bit stretchy and Madison still hasn’t read the book but kept asking everyone for answers to her questions when she could've just read the book for answers. I’d be reading that damn book and not do anything else until I’ve finished it. But she run around and put herself in danger while she still didn't know anything.

Sure, we got some more about the Kings, the families and the history but the information we got were just snippets which weren’t really satisfying.

I also wish there was some more dark and hot stuff in this book as it was in the first one so I have high hopes for the next book to be better because I really want to see some more Bishop-action. =) I just really need the next book to give me more of everything and to finally solve those damn riddles.

-- I received an ARC of this book from Give Me Books Promotions in exchange for an honest review. --

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
