Author: Gillian Felix


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+


I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

This is the third book in the Family Portrait series. I’d read the first two books, Changes and The Banovic Siblings, and couldn’t wait for the third one to see what happened with everyone. These books are like a soap opera and you never know what is going to happen next!

As the series progresses, the reader gets to know the characters better and better. I felt like book #1 was an introduction to the characters, book #2 had several revelations about the characters and their relationships, and book #3 is a continuation of the characters’ stories.

I really enjoy these books and Gillian Felix’s style of writing. I’m looking forward to reading her next book.
