    One thought on “Family Affairs”

    1. Kaitlin is back! She’s just finished her big movie with her career and her boyfriend still intact! Now she’s off to what she does best. Staring in the nighttime soap, Family Affair. Everything is going great! That is until newcomer Alexis starts stealing some of Kaitlin’s limelight. Is Kaitlin simply jealous or are there more forces at workLike its two predecessors, Secrets of My Hollywood Life: Family Affairs, was a fun and fast read. These books are impeccably clean, so I wouldn’t be c [...]

    2. I think this series is curing me of my sometimes overboard-interest in the entertainment business (hello, People magazine and Access Hollywood-- I'm talking to you), because I had a lightbulb moment about halfway through speedreading this book:Everything about this industry is manufactured.In an abstract sort of way, I already knew this. But watching this fairly predictable story play out, it occurred to me how Hollywood stars, famous people, celebrities, whatever you call them, are not to be en [...]

    3. Another cute read. I liked how this one extended a bit more beyond Hollywood and introduced a new scheming character.I'm curious as to how the series will shift now.Still love Austin to pieces. I must say, I'm also glad the author made him a character that is genuinely cute and sweet. He's not dark, twisted and broody (which seems to be the popular thing these days) nor is he an arrogant scene-stealer eager to be in the lights. You just like him since he's so adorable.I love that she channeled L [...]

    4. I typically don't read "chick lit." I've never even read a Princess Diaries book. But, Calonita might visit my middle school in March, so I had to check out Secrets of My Hollywood Life. I chose the third book in the series (because that's the only one I had) and was pleasantly surprised. I think this will be a good fit for my Clique readers that are looking for another series. The storyline is tame enough and the main protagonist too much of a good girl to slump the series in the same category [...]

    5. It surprises me how much I enjoy these books. They're so well written (i.e.- good plot, characters, writing) and so FUN. I haven't read books that are just meant to be fluff and fun for a long time and so it's actually kind of nice. I enjoyed this third installment more than the second one for sure. They're very quick light reads that you can finish in little more than a sitting, which is bad when that sitting happens to be late at night! I'm very excited for the next one. I know this is a poor [...]

    6. Family Affairs is the 3rd book in a series of books called "Secrets of My Hollywood Life". I just finished this one, and I agree with another source that this is the best one in the series so far. After filming her last movie, Pretty Young Assassins, Kaitlin is back on her famous TV show "Family Affairs". But their is a new addition to the Family Affairs cast, who is making the show's ratings soar upward. Although Alexis, who plays the new character Colby, on Kaitlin's show seems sweet at first, [...]

    7. This one is my favorite of the series so far. I'm a soap junkie so I was living for being on the set of Family Affair and seeing the scripts and the drama. I also loved seeing Kaitlin and Sky put aside their competitive feud and work together.

    8. Kaitlin Matures!Yep, in this book Kaitlin and Sky both grow up a lot. And just when you think things are going to get settled, they get worse. To me, this is the best book in the series, thus far. Why? Kaitlin has growing pains, but she doesn't have problems with Austin. And Austin is an awesome boyfriend. Better than ever before.And Family Affairs is going to go through a lot in this book and it's going to have an interesting denouement.

    9. I think these books are just fun. I like the different characters. The stories are quick and easy and are just a fun way to spend a few hours. I would love to know who the author would cast for each of the characters.

    10. I really had fun with this book, Kaitlin and Sky made me laugh through out it. I love seeing the little Hollywood facts and getting behind the scenes, along with seeing the scripts and magazine pages. I can't wait to see what Kaitlin is up to in the next three books.

    11. This book was as amazing and surprising as the first two! It had a huge twist at the end that made this story different that the others.

    15. ReviewKaitlin is back in this third book of the Secrets of My Hollywood Life series. Also back, is mean-girl Skye. What’s different is that there’s a new rival on the set. Her name is Alexis, and she’s not going to back down quietly. Cue the drama! Not only do the girls get into it behind the scenes, but on set too. Backstabbing, a cat fight, secrets revealed – it was a complete mess for these three. Seriously, there were times when I just wanted to slap some sense into them so they woul [...]

    20. This book is terrifically awful. Monumentally terrible. It's so bad I can barely stand to write a review of it. This is book three of the Kaitlin Burke series, and I am astonished to know there are two more after this with a sixth in the works. I just how does this happen? The writing is poor, the story is bland and predictable, the characters are caricatures. And the outfit descriptions. WHY does Jen Calonita feel the need to illustrate each character's outfit in detail in each scene? This know [...]

    21. Family Affairs by Jen Calonita was an amazing book! This was the third book in the secrets of my Hollywood life series. The books are amazing and I am totally going to read the entire series.

It feels as if I know an actual celebrity!In this book, Kaitlin is back on her hit TV show Family Affair. After recording 10 seasons, the fans were starting to get board. The new diva, Alexis, is now the new st [...]

    22. Yes! Book Number three in this series! More Kaitlin, more drama. Oh boy, drama. There is chock full of drama in here. From Alexis. Alexis is the new girl on set and she keeps charming all of the writings into thinking she's so amazing. Her episode is stretch from let's say 1/4 of the season, to half! Everyone thinks Alexis is an angel, and so magical. But when everyone's gone, she's rude and horrible! She stops scenes, causing extra money for Tom, the film producer. Then she blames all of it on [...]

    23. I loved Family Affairs by Jen Calonita because there was lots of drama that gets really tangled up, but it untangles all at the very last minute. This book reminds me of Mean Girls because Alexis is being mean to Kaitlin and Sky while being nice to others. I like how Kaitlin and Sky team up to try to take down Alexis. I like how Kaitlin and Sky start to become friends and how they start to share some secrets. I like how Alexis tries to take over by being "nice" to take over Family Affairs when s [...]

    24. Nothing is like a good sitcom? Kaitlin Burkes know that more than anyone. Being on a television show since she was five Kaitlin know how hard Hollywood can be.

    27. I read Secrets of my Hollywood Life: Family Affairs (#3) by Jen Calionita. A Realistic Fiction novel taking place in Los Angles, starring Kaitlin Burke, Sky Mackenzie, Austin, Liz, Alexis, Lanie, Nadine, Matty, Melli, and Mom. This is an exciting novel about the filming and cast of the soap opera Family Affair. It includes fights, dates, crushes and jealousy. Although these teen movie stars may be seen to have the "sweet life" their lives are totally stressful. I rated this book 5 out of 5 stars [...]
