The Alias by Mandi Slack
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Romance/ Suspense
Book Description: After a long and difficult divorce, Jacey is sure the worst is over. But when the FBI reveals some disturbing information about her ex-husband, she is forced into hiding to protect herself and her son. In the process, she risks losing her identity, her future, and her heart. Thrilling and suspenseful, this novel is an edge-of-your-seat read.
My thoughts: Jacey is running. She is running from an abusive ex-husband who wants to take her son. She's running because the FBI has just told her about his illegal activities. What she doesn't realize that she is running to the family she always wanted.
Jayce is stronger than she realized. Circumstances forced her to make some tough choices and bold moves. She hated lying to Helen and Grant. She posed as their niece, whom they had never met, to give herself and her son, Blaze, a refuge while she figured out their next move. She didn't consider the feelings they would have for her and how much she would come to love and respect them. She never thought that they would have an amazing son she may want to get to know better.
There is some action as the ex came seeking revenge. The romance is quick and sweet. The unconditional love is amazing. The acceptance is exampillary.
I enjoyed reading about Jayce's journey. This book is an adult book, but it is clean and suitable for multiple age groups.
