Alter Ego by K.A. Masson Review is here.
Pounding on the door. My seven-year-old son shaking me awake. My head fuzzy with sleeping pills. The hallway flashing with blue light. This morning my life will change forever.
Alex Kendrew is juggling single parenthood, work, and dating. With a wild, impetuous streak that’s hard to keep in check, she struggles to find a balance and feels perpetually guilty for the choices she makes. Alex believes she finally finds the perfect man for her in Mal but is devastated when he leaves her to go back to his ex. After a return to dating, Alex reconnects with a man she knew in college who is now successful, rich, and has children of his own. But rather than being a father figure for her young son Ned, he is cruel and controlling. Out of the blue, Mal gets back in touch, and Alex begins a passionate affair with him. But one morning, the police arrest her for his attempted murder. Someone is framing her, but how can she prove her innocence as the evidence mounts against her?
Alter Ego from K.A. Masson is the fascinating portrayal of a woman caught between her desires and responsibilities. Is anyone in Alex’s life really who they seem?
This novel is a debut and definitely worth a read. Author K. A. Masson did an amazing job crafting this plotline as I have not been able to put it down, and when I do, I sneak a peek back it! 😊 Authors always want to know if their books keep you up because you can’t stop reading. Well, Author K.A. Masson, I stayed up and lost sleep just to read one more chapter!
