Family Portrait vol. 3
When L'Wren's ex-boyfriend Jeff suddenly disappears, she turns to Kevin to help her find him. With one phone call, Kevin makes sure that Jeff stays hidden and that L'Wren's heart is broken, leaving the door open for Kevin to pursue her. But Kevin is not as free as L'Wren thinks; she is in the dark about his affair with her stepmother, Savi. Savi constantly reminds Kevin of his devious ways and uses their secret to keep him as her toyfriend.
“You don’t deserve to be loved, and you don’t deserve to be happy. You and I are the same … we’re broken inside. Everything we touch, we destroy. We don’t get happily ever after … we don’t get to ride off into the sunset. You know who gets that? L’Wren … she gets it, she gets the guy, and she deserves a decent guy.”- Savi
Kevin desires to be the man that L'Wren deserves, but before he can assume the role of white knight, he brews one last plan to get rid of Savi for good. Will L'Wren, the innocent victim in their twisted game, become a casualty?
Kevin may have sold his body to the devil in stilettos, but he'd be damned if he let her have his heart.
Suitable for adults 18+
L’Wren did her meet and greets after the show, chatting with fashion scouts and receiving compliments from everyone. As the place cleared out, she looked around for Kevin and spotted him assisting with the cleanup.
“Hey, you.” She beamed.
“Congratulations, that was awesome.” He smiled. “How did it go with the scouts?”
“I have two meetings set up for next week!”
“You did it!”
“We did it. This could not have happened without you. All the work you put in and in such a short amount of time.”
“It was fun,” he replied.
“A lot of work,” she pointed out.
“The fun is in the journey,” he replied, and their eyes locked.
“Thank you,” she said seriously, and he nodded.
“I’m gonna grab a broom.” She needed to get away is what she told herself, but really, she wanted to kiss him.
“No, don’t. I hired a couple of high school kids to clean up.” He stuck his hands into his back pockets to curb the desire to pull her into his arms.
“You thought of everything.” She tried to unlock her eyes from his, but for some reason, his eyes felt like a magnet pulling her in. Her phone rang, interrupting the moment.
“It’s Leighann. She’s stuck in her dress,” L’Wren said and turned to walk away. In a moment of courage she turned back around to face him. “You wanna hang out sometime?” She held her breath and waited for an answer.
He studied her for a moment. His silence almost made her regret asking. “No,” came the reply, which stabbed her heart like a blade. Feeling like a fool, she turned away.
“I want to cook you dinner.” His words came suddenly.
She looked at him questioningly.
“I don’t hang out. I’d rather cook you dinner, you and Leighann. Come by the manor tomorrow evening.”
L’Wren was pleasantly surprised; she walked over and kissed him lightly on his cheek and quickly headed to his office/makeshift dressing room to rescue Leighann.
I received a free copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review.
I read at the back of this book that this story was meant to be a television series, and I can definitely see how that would work! The novels are short and there are so many characters to follow. I really enjoy reading the books and finding out what happens next! It took me a few pages into this one to remember everything that happened in the first two books, but I can't wait to find out what's in the next one. I'm especially interested in what is going to happen between Savi, Kevin and L'Wren. It's an interesting mix of people, and I'm curious as to how everything will work out. And is Adriana going to tell Haze her secret? I just want to know!
What I really like about these books is that Ms. Felix delves deeply into the lives of each character. She doesn't just skim the surface of everyone; I feel like I really get to know each of them really well. I also love how all of the characters lives are woven together and their actions tend to affect so many other people. It definitely reads similar to a soap opera, and surprisingly, I really like that about this story!
