Collins Drake exercises control over all facets of his life. From his business, to satisfying his physical needs … it all happens on his command.
So when a woman shows up at his door and reminds him of a promise they made each other when they were just ten years old, it shouldn’t have the ability to rock his entire world.
Yet it does.
Because Mia Monroe wasn't just his childhood best friend, she wasn't just the girl he lost his virginity to and hasn't seen since, she's the one exception to his perfect control. And piece by piece, she's about to tear apart his carefully laid plans.
Kendall Ryan can do nothing wrong. I keep waiting to come across a novel she writes that is something other than fantastic. Filthy Beautiful Forever is the fourth book in her Filthy Beautiful Lies Series. Readers finally get their hands on Collins Drake’s story, and it’s so damn good.
Colton was dark and mysterious. Pace loved women. A lot. Collins Drake is such a stark contrast to his brothers. He’s more mature, responsible, career focused. He wants to get off just as much as any Drake man, but Collins’ priorities lie in his work and drive to succeed professionally. Because of this, he has chosen to settle in the area of romantic relationships. Granted, he settled for a high-fashion model with a killer body and strong sexual appetite, but still it’s obvious to everyone that their relationship is one of convenience and not based on fluff and fairytales.
Insert Mia Monroe. I loved the premise for Mia and Collins’ reunion ten years after fate separated this twosome. Our hero and heroine were childhood friends who experienced many firsts together but whose potential was cut short. Their attraction is reignited when Mia tracks down Collins. Collins must navigate through resurfacing feelings for his old flame, his loyalty to his current girlfriend, and decide which version of himself best suits his future. Is he content with his present or will the past become his future?
The first line of this book had me hooked! It also had me laughing out loud! It’s no secret (if you follow our blog) that I LOVED the first three books in this series. I adore the Drake brothers and was super excited to get Collins’ happily ever after.
In the first books we saw Collins a little bit. But we also saw his dead fish of a girlfriend, Tatania. She was cold, lacked personality and you could tell they weren’t really in love. One day, Collins childhood best friend, Mia shows up at his door. She is gorgeous, smart and kind. She also happened to be the love of his life. But Collins life was controlled and in order.
Mia was a spit fire. She was so full of life and I absolutely adored her. She brought out the best in Collins and he did the same for her.
This was another beautiful story crafted by Kendall Ryan. I loved that we still got to see Pace and Kylie and Colton and Sophie. The ending was pure perfection and quite honestly I am beyond sad to see this family go.
This is one of my top series and I HIGHLY recommend picking up the whole series.

Filthy Beautiful Lies
**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
Filthy Beautiful Love:
**Warning: this book contains an additively filthy alpha male who will dampen your panties and own your days and nights. Proceed at your own risk.**
Book 2 in the Filthy Beautiful Lies series.
I never expected to watch Sophie walk away. She was mine. I would own her. She just didn’t know it yet. New goal: Seal the deal and rock her world so thoroughly she never wanted to leave again.
Highly sexual and emotionally charged, Filthy Beautiful Love is the provocative conclusion to Filthy Beautiful Lies.
Filthy Beautiful Lust
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.
