Who needs enemies when you’ve got family
The stars are aligned in Adriana’s favor, but secrets have a way of exposing themselves just when everything is perfect. As Adriana and Haze’s relationship heads south, Carys is ready to pounce. Will Adriana’s lies drive the man she loves into the arms of another?
Meanwhile Zax is finally with his dream girl, but why can’t he get his best friend’s girl out of his mind? When she turns to him for advice on how to be a better girlfriend, can he put his selfish desires aside, or will he follow his siblings and take what he wants despite the consequences?
When Kevin’s lifestyle puts innocent L’Wren in danger, his retaliation brings his ruthless uncle back to Los Angeles and into the lives of his family. In Bad Uncle you’ll get to know the man who has the power to change the legacy of the Banovic family forever.
Bacchanal Jake’s would not be opened to the public for another eight hours. Among the upturned chairs and bar prep work still to be done, Kevin Banovic and Victoria Johansson went over the fine print of their new partnership. She was his new silent partner at Jake’s. She’d put up the money to buy him freedom from the organization they’d worked for. Now Kevin was free to run Jake’s as a legit operation, he could finally be the kind of man that L’Wren and his parents expected him to be.
“How does it feel, partner?” Victoria smiled.
“Thank you! I don’t know how to repay you.” Kevin hugged her.
“You’re my best friend, Kevin, that’s payback enough.”
They heard the front door open. “Love what you did to the place.”
Kevin recognized the voice instantly. It was a voice that he’d heard a million times over the phone, his worst nightmare.
Kevin charged violently towards the tall, handsome, dark-haired man in his mid-thirties. He stopped in his tracks when he heard two gun clicks. One from the bodyguard guarding the door and the other behind him, from Victoria.
Victoria had her gun pointed at the intruder and the bodyguard had his gun pointed at Kevin.
“I never miss,” she said seriously.
“Now, now, children, put your toys away.” The intruder looked at his bodyguard and he lowered his gun. “You too, quick-draw McGraw,” he directed at Victoria.
Victoria lowered her gun only when Kevin gave her the signal to.
“This is between me and my nep–” Before he could get the rest of the sentence out, Kevin rammed his fist into Adrian Banovic’s face, knocking him flat on his back before jumping on him and landing a few choice punches. Adrian blocked a few punches and managed to flip Kevin over. Both men jumped to their feet and sparred.
Blood poured from Adrian’s mouth. “Is this any way to greet your uncle?”
“You kidnapped my girlfriend!” Kevin lunged at him, but he moved out of the way.
“Grasshopper, I taught you better than that,” Adrian taunted.
“You’re right.” Kevin sideswiped him and landed his elbow on Adrian’s neck, taking him down to his knees. Kevin had him in a fierce headlock that prevented Adrian from moving without breaking his own spine.
“That’s enough!” Victoria shouted at them and Kevin released him.
Janette gives it 4.5 stars.
Welcome back to the Sassygirlbooksmz, last we saw the Banovic’s kids life was starting to take slightly different turns, Zax’s eyes have started to see a little clearer when it came to Leighann, Adriana was and still is madly head over heels in love with Haze and Kevin bulldozed the ever selfish Savi out of his path and managed to find love with L’wren. But who said it was time for rainbows and roses this is LA and the Banovic’s we are talking about.
In this edition of our favorite family the lid has been removed and booms and revelations have been unleashed. Kevin has it all a growing business and the love of a great woman but fear that his truth will be exposed is pushing his inner-self to leave behind his doubled life.
Zax can’t help but start realizing that his chance with LD has slipped or is slipping away from him, and being around her is getting harder and harder to handle.
Wholly Brenda (90210 moment), the truth that Adriana was so desperately holding on too struck her hard as hell the moment Haze found out BOOM WTF MOMENT (so thankful no commercial interruption when this happened). But damn you can feel the pain, betrayal, love being pulled from the revelation but I gotta say I’m hoping and still rooting for #Hazriana..
On the key players sweetie Kristin isn’t so sweet after all she is being naughty and when the sheets cool down what will happen when golden boy Zax finds out, and what would happen to Joel if Zax finds comfort in LD (time is ticking before Zax embraces his Banovic tendency to take what he wants no matter what).
Savi is out of it still but time is only a matter of time since a ghost from the ashes has risen…. I’m guessing this is his wild card to control Kevin….it’s only a matter of time..
And finally the moment we all been waiting for the voice taunting Kevin has been revealed and it’s a whopper but the bigger questions are why? How? What does he really want? And the fact that I (I mean we have to wait for the next book is like waiting for the next DAMN season premiere) this is why I’m anti summer all shows go into hiatus and apparently so do the Banovic’s.
I gotta say Gillian Felix is killing me very softly here because books 1-4 were like this great setup for the book boom that is Bad Uncle and no teaser on book 6 is urgh.. Well played Gillian.
****best line thus far Zax telling Adriana that her life is like a soap opera loved it****.
Now back to you at Sassygirlbooksmz headquarters. ..
