It looked like an ordinary email. But when she opened it, a Hong Kong housewife unwittingly uncovered a decade's old plot to blackmail her and her husband. Determined to find out who was responsible, she soon finds herself thrust into a shadowy underworld of sex, lies, and dirty money.
The men who had orchestrated the plot thought that because she was a woman, she was weak. But when she began uncovering their web of deception, they realized the old adage really is true - hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
They gave her a nickname... the Alpha Female.
This is her incredible true story.
"Biggest Hong Kong Scandal No One Has Heard Of
Reviewed in the United States on July 15, 2022
""Crazy stories are abundant in Hong Kong with all that money and drugs - scandals are all over the place. From Nancy Kissel murdering her husband to Rurik Jutting murdering prostitutes in his apartment and stuffing them into a suitcase on his balcony, scandals are plenty in the finance capital of Asia.
But this story is so outrageous that it's almost like fiction. Not to the extent of the gruesome murders as stated before, but the many levels of deceit, lies, manipulation, subterfuge, organization, and sexual misconduct. The extent people went to harm a famous Hong Kong family is truly extraordinary.
The story was told in a raw and totally unfiltered manner with no fluff - just straight to the point making this an easy read. I'm still in shock.
This would make a GREAT movie.""

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing this book in exchange for an honest review.
Wow, this is definitely not a typical story of husband cheats on wife, wife wants divorce. It goes way deeper and more involved than that. What a complicated puzzle. I don't want to give any spoilers so I'm not saying much.
Part 1 of the story and I definitely want to read the rest of the story.
A quick but crazy read about a woman’s experiences with learning about a plot involving her husband and the many bizarre turns it takes. A fascinating tale with more to come.
If you have unfortunately ever caught your husband watching porn and got irritated, then you really need to read the alpha female by Jessica Berner-Lee. They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, but they would have to invent a new word and they met Jessica. She roared when grown man coward and kept going. When she what’s blackmailed she turned the tables and dive in headfirst to find out with whom he cheated and then ultimately who was behind it. This was an awesome book I really don’t want to get any of the particulars away just know Jessica is honest and bad ass and definitely an alpha female. Just to give you a little hint this whole story is connected to Jeffrey Epstein and the me two movement. I really never liked autobiographies that come in parts, but signed me up for Book2 of Jessica lays autobiography. I can’t say enough how great this book was it is a total five story she is no wilting flower and someone who demands respect and she definitely has mine. I received this book from net Gally and the publisher but I am leaving this review totally voluntarily please forgive any mistakes as I am blind and dictate my review but all opinions are definitely my own. This book is totally bad ass!!!
Loved this so much, can't wait for book 2.
Such an interesting read, had me hooked from the word go.
This is a short story that’s very well told, I was captivated with the story and the way it was told. Jessica Lee is a busy mother, taking care of her kids and their activities after being let go from her job working at BJ Maroon, an international investment banking firm. BJ Maroon is a boy’s club type of workplace, they like their extramarital women and they don’t like to cater to women. Which is why when Jessica gets a tumor and has to leave work for a while to have surgery and get better, then she gets pregnant after that, the men at BJ Maroon end up pushing her out but before she goes she turns in some people to the HR department and investigations are made, setting off a chain of events of people trying to ruin Jessica’s life.
Jessica is married, happily. They have sex a lot and seem really in love until Jessica gets undenyable proof that her husband is a serial cheater. Jessica’s husband, Kenneth, is a doctor with an insatiable appetite for sexual misdeeds. Being a doctor, you would think he would be smarter, but he thinks with his penis and that gets him and by extension his whole family in trouble. See, he’s been seeing honeypots, women that are only sleeping with him to get blackmail videos on him. Jessica knows that these women are honeypots, just sleeping with her husband because it’s their job but what she doesn’t know is why. Is it because of the bridges she burned working at BJ Maroon? Is it because Kenneth comes from a wealthy family? Is it something bigger than that?
I liked this book, I wish it was longer but I'm excited to read the rest of the series. While looking up more about the book I was reminded that this is a nonfiction memoir which blows my mind. This was supposed to be a sophisticated blackmail plot but Jessica didn't immediately open the email and what kind of sorry excuse for a husband cheats on his wife, especially when she has a brain tumor and is taking care of their kids. In the book, Jessica is given the codename Alpha Female and I love that for her because she definitely seems like an alpha. Even funnier is Kenneth's codename of Snow White. I'll have to read the rest of the series to find out what happens to Ken and Jessica. I know Jessica will be fine but I still want to know her story.
