Book Review On Copyright By Lori Lesko


Blurb: Amber Tyler is living every author’s dream: her books are all best sellers and she writes full time. She has worked hard and is well-accomplished in her career, and she has the support and love of her beautiful children and girlfriend.

But the dream soon turns into a terrible nightmare when her latest manuscript is stolen. She decides to fight for what is rightfully hers, only to find that the harder she tries, the easier it all slips through her fingers, putting her career, her family, and her life in jeopardy.


                                               ***

I normally don’t read books like this, because I’m more into the paranormal/fantasy genre. However, I’m glad I did. The story was really good.

Amber Tyler is a bestselling author. She has it made. She lives in a beautiful house on the beach, has two wonderful kids, and a gorgeous girlfriend. The story opens with Amber working on her book. She has a heart attack and has to go into immediate surgery. With the help from her loving family, she recovers from her chest cracking surgery. One day she decides to invite the father of her son’s girlfriend over for dinner.

He’s a lawyer.

He’s pleasant.

He’s down-to-earth.

And he wears thousand dollar suits.

During their friendly conversation, Amber discovers the book she was working so hard on prior to her heart attack has been stolen. Not only that, it’s been published, and it’s a best seller. Amber hires this lawyer and while he’s working on her case, her life spirals out of control.

F.Y.I. This book gets suspenseful from here.

Seriously.

My heart was racing throughout some of the scenes. I don’t have high blood pressure, but I bet it was jacked up from time to time. That’s how good of a job this author did.

Amber is a recovering addict. With the stress she’s under, she gives into her self-destructive side and backslides to drinking alcohol and doing drugs again. This author did a wonderful job capturing what it’s like to be an addict. 

Amber’s family kicks her out, and her life gets worse from there. It’s crazy what she goes through and the thoughts that rolls through her head. You're there, along for the ride with her, and let me tell ya . . . it's a dark, twisted road where alcohol and drugs becomes her master and she's its puppet. 

Yes, I'm thinking of Master of Puppets by Metallica, because that song fits  Amber's addiction. 


This book is well worth the read, and I would recommend it.
