Review Blitz: Filthy Beautiful Lies by Kendall Ryan

Posted August 21, 2014 by Holly in Reviews / 0 Comments

Today Kendall Ryan’s Filthy Beautiful Lies tour stops by with an excerpt and my review! Colton Drake is one sexy beast you don’t want to miss!


**Warning: this book contains an addictively filthy alpha male who will dampen your panties and own your days and nights. Proceed at your own risk.** 

Meet Colton Drake

I have no idea why she auctioned off her virginity for a cool mill. Regardless, I’m now the proud new owner of a perfectly intact hymen. A lot of good that will do me. I have certain tastes, certain sexual proclivities. My cock is a bit more discriminatory than most. And training a virgin takes finesse and patience – both of which I lack.

Sophie Evans has been backed into a corner. With her sister’s life hanging in the balance, the only choice is to claw her way out, even if that means selling her virginity to the highest bidder at an exclusive erotic club. When Colton Drake takes her home, she quickly learns nothing is as it seems with this beautifully troubled man. Being with him poses challenges she never expected, and pushes her to want things she never anticipated. 

A sinfully seductive erotic romance where everything has a price and the cost of love is the highest of all from New York Times & USA Today bestselling author, Kendall Ryan

An Excerpt

She draws a shuddering breath. “Isn’t a sex slave supposed to, I don’t know, actually have sex with their master?”
“That eager, huh?” I trail a damp fingertip along her lower lip and feel her inhale sharply.
“You bought me, expecting something in return. Call me crazy, but I thought that was how this worked.”
“Let’s get one thing straight. I don’t want a sex slave. A want a companion. A mistress. Call me conservative, but I don’t like the term slave.”  I’ve paid Sophie to be here – she’s not held captive against her will.
“A mistress?” she asks, raising an eyebrow at me.
“It suits you. You’re my dirty little secret – a kept women,” I remind her, smoothing a hand along her backside, watching her pulse kick up in her neck. I couldn’t have her questioning my motives. It was too fucked up for even me to think about, let alone admit to her. 

My Review

Kendall has a knack for writing the hot, sexy, books I love. I knew I would love Drake from the blurb; he WAS smooth and confident yet, there was a slightly softer side to him that I wasn’t expecting but absolutely loved! Smooth? Confident? Slightly Broken? That’s my book boy trifecta! The hints we get into his past have me curious as to what he went through. Curiosity is killing this cat and only satisfaction will bring me back. Nonetheless, I had fun seeing Sophie affect him in ways he wasn’t expecting. 
Sophie now, despite auctioning off her goods, I respected the hell as to why she was doing it. I gave her a lot of credit for putting her sister’s needs first. I liked how she started out as this shy girl who slowly evolves into a strong confident woman. Being away from home for once, she was finally able to become her own person. The tension between Drake and Sophie had me turning the pages quickly; I couldn’t believe I was done as fast as I was. Kendall gave me a fast paced story loaded will sexual tension, unexpected moments between the characters and secrets that I can’t wait to be revealed!
