Levi

 

It’s no secret I was born from money. And I’m destined to take over the family business,
King Cosmetics, when my father retires.
At least that was the plan. 
Until my father decided to impose some stupid rule about being married before I take the
reigns. Everything I’ve worked for hangs in the balance and the future of the company is in jeopardy without a King behind the controls.  

 

I never considered Becca part of the plan for taking over, but when one kiss leads to so much
more, I can’t help but wonder if she’s the answer to my problem.

 

Becca

There are two things I love – my beauty blog and Levi King. 
Coming from the same social circle has given me ample opportunity to crush on the
next 
generation of King Cosmetics, but he made it clear a long time ago that I would never be
anything more than “like family” to him.

 

Feeling the need for some serious changes in my life,
I start shaking things up. 
It wasn’t part of my plan to kiss Levi, but one kiss could never be enough. When that kiss turns
into a relationship and I find out that Levi’s been keeping a secret, I begin to question if our love affair was too good to be true.

 

Looks like we’re about to find out if we can truly build flawless foundations for the rest of our
lives. After all 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love.

My review:

Becca has had a crush on her best friend’s older brother forever. When he shoots her down, though, she decides it’s easier to dislike him than to deal with unrequited feelings for him. Levi has been focused on the family business, having been groomed his entire life to take the place of his father as head of the company when he retires. However, his father has one stipulation that must be met in order for Levi to do this, and he isn’t backing down. At the same time, Levi is noticing Becca as more than just his little sister’s best friend. Lines get blurred and things get complicated.

I really enjoyed this book. Becca and Levi have so much chemistry between them. I also enjoyed the interactions with Emmy and Jake from Boyfriend Maintenance. Like the other 425 Madison books, however, this is still a standalone and you don’t have to know Emmy and Jake to enjoy this one. Flawless Foundations was a fun, captivating read.
Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

Excerpt 

Copyright @ Lauren Helms 2020


“Em, is there anything at Envirogal open? I don’t know, maybe in research and development?

Or even the finance department? Maybe it’s time to put my degrees to use?”

She pops out her bottom lip. “I really don’t think we have any openings that would fit what you’re

looking for or would enjoy. But I will definitely talk to HR on Monday.” I deflate a little at her response.

Damn it. She was a great resource in the field I would want to work in since I clearly have to work.

“Oh, you should talk to Levi. King Cos is always hiring. They are just so much bigger than
Envirogal. I’m sure he’d be able to find you a great job!” She’s all excited about the prospect,
she’s also completely unaware of my distaste for her brother, Levi King.
Well, if she is aware, she does a great job of ignoring it. Just the thought of her tall, slender,
dark-haired, brown-eyed brother makes me twitchy. Then, of course, my next thought
goes to the fact that he now lives just down the hall. Which means at any time, he could just show up.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy that Emmy’s relationship with her brother is stronger than ever. She
deserves it since she has some of the worst parents, but I was as happy as a clam not seeing Levi on a
regular basis.
 
I’ve known Levi King since I was a freckle-faced, braces-wearing preteen. We’ve always gotten
along but were never friends. With him being two years older than us and seeing him being a
nice big brother to Emmy, instead of an asshole like a lot of the other brothers in our social
circle, I had it bad. My crush on him grew pretty quickly way back then. Unfortunately for me, that
crush never really faded, but instead grew as the years went by. That is, until college.
It all ended one night in my Sophomore year. Emmy and I visited him at Harvard one weekend.
He was a senior and surprisingly welcomed a visit from his sister. He took us out
with a few of his friends to their local hang out and, well, let’s just say I had a lot to drink. I decided
with my liquid courage that I’d flirt a little. He flirted back, to my surprise and extreme
excitement. Toward the end of the night, I thought I was actually getting somewhere. So, when
I finally kissed him, I was in heaven. Until he pushed me away and told me I was drunk, and
he’d never take advantage of a woman under the influence. Okay, so I can commend that. But
drunk me just kept pushing until he delivered his final blow. “Becca, you’re like a sister to me,
nothing can ever happen between us.”
Ouch. You know what’s worse than being friend-zoned? Sister-zoned.

Don’t Boyfriend Maintenance
by Lauren Helms from the first season of 425 Madison Ave.

 

“Boyfriend Maintenance is a charming little faux romance story that comes brimming with loads of
emotion and steam. This unlikely pairing strike up a deal that leads them in a direction neither saw
coming, and boy was it fun to watch them try and resist the sparks, and unexpected chemistry.”
