From New York Times & USA Today bestselling author, Kendall Ryan, comes the third book in the Filthy Beautiful Lies series.

Pace Drake loves sex. He knows where get it, what to say, what to do, and he makes no apologies for satisfying his needs. But when he meets single mom,Kylie Sloan, he’s enthralled by her, and begins to question his standard operating procedure. After all, there’s no chase, no mystery when banging a woman in a nightclub bathroom. Kylie’s depth and determination make the sloppy, drunken hookups that fill his weekends seem empty and shallow. She’s the opposite of the desperate, clingy women he’s used to. She doesn’t want or need anyone to take care of her and that only makes him want to care for her more.

Kylie’s trust in men has vanished. The last guy she was with played ding-dong-ditch-it with her uterus and left her with a baby to raise. Now her infant son is the only man she has time for, even if she misses sex and intimacy more than she’d ever admit. Opening her heart up to a younger man who’s best known for no-strings-attached sex and his casual lifestyle is probably the worst idea she’s ever had. But Pace wants to prove to her there are still a few good guys left, and watching the sweet way he interacts with her baby makes her want to try…but she can really trust that his days of hitting it and quitting it are in his past?

Filthy Beautiful Lust is the third book in the Filthy Beautiful Lies series, however it can be read as a standalone novel (no cliffhanger). To understand the full growth and development of the characters, it is recommended that you begin with book 1, Filthy Beautiful Lies.


Lordy!  I was ridiculously excited for the third book in the Filthy Beautiful Lies series.  I have loved Pace through both of the first two books and I could not wait for his story.  You could definitely read Filthy Beautiful Lust as a standalone but if you want the full experience read Filthy Beautiful Lies and Filthy Beautiful Love first.  All great books but for some reason Pace just worked his way right into my heart from the very beginning. Maybe it was the dimple?


I have been in love with that dimple for 2 books and I happy to report that Pace has the big heart to match that dimple.  He wants Kylie so much and she sure gives him a run for his money.  She a twenty-nine year old single mother with a one year old to care for.  She thinks Pace and his twenty-five year old playboy ways will only break her heart after the last brutal break-up she suffered.

Max is the only man I have time for these days.  And the only man i will give my heart to.

 I think Pace surprised me as much as he did Kylie.  What an incredibly sweet mature man.  Sigh.  Swoon.  I just loved him so much.

Her softness, the love I see pouring out of her in every interaction with Max – maybe those are things that attract me to her.  Her warmth, her devotion – they are all part of what makes her beautiful.

Pace really broke my heart and I was just so mad at Kylie even though I completely understood her reservations and fears about Pace.  Poor poor sexy dimple having pace.  SOB

I lay back against the pillows.  The smell of warm vanilla and little boy greets me.  My chest tightens and I squeeze my eyes close, wondering what I’m supposed to do now.

I cried so hard for Pace.  Damn you, Kylie!!!!!

This book really was a fantastic read.  I loved all the angst.  I loved how erotic and sexy it was.  Kendall Ryan is steadily becoming one of my very favorite authors and I cannot wait for Collins’ book!  EEK!
