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.

Really! Just bought the book and only 100 pages. I dont care how great it may be I feel robbed, and then they expect me to buy the second book? Why not just one longer book?

Although, the premise was out there for me I think the story was well done. I thouroughly enjoyed this book! The story is about Sophie and Colton. Sophie is a virgin in need of some serious cash. She is so desperate that she is willing to auction herself off as a sex slave. Colton who is a first time bidder decides to out bid everyone to have her. I know it sounds far fetched and over the top, but the story is told where you almost belive this could happen. Warning: if you do not like to read a complete story in more than one book, do not buy this. The next book is Filthy Beautiful Love which is the completion of Sophie and Coltons story. I highly recommend this book to you. ENJOY!!!

## First and foremost, let me say WOW. Fan-freaking-tastic! Thank you to the author for divulging to us readers that this books ends with a cliffhanger. To this day I still won't buy anything written by Sylvia Day after deceiving her fans one too many times. The synopsis was so intriguing that I couldn't wait to get started. Once I began, I couldn't stop. It sucked me right in. I had to know what this hero was hiding. Again, WOW. This hero and heroine had fabulous chemistry. It absolutely sizzled. I love how their relationship unfolded and grew as they got to know each other. The writing was superb. The desire, jealousy, anxiety and not to mention the hurt conveyed in this story was nothing short of amazing. Also, the alternating POVs were refreshing. The only thing I didn't like were all the insanly good looking female employees the hero had. Marta needed to be kicked to the curb, if only out of respect to the heroine. Other than that, a tremendous read that made me smile.

This is a very hot and exciting book. The characters will draw you in. The sex and interesting plot will keep you reading.

I love a great book with intimacy and happiness with a little drama thrown in. But I also like happy endings. Why write a book of 100 pages, then end it with no ending and expect readers to buy the next book. I feel robbed and will not buy the next book. 400 to 500 pages would get you much better reviews.

I've giving this a poor - because once again a writer has only given you a tiny little bit of a book.  Honey - if you want to write a book  - write a freaking book. I'm not going to waste even 99 cents on the next installment.  You want a good series - try Sylvia Day's Crossfilre -  at least you will get your money's worth and then some because each book is a novel. This story wasn't all that good anyway.  No enough emotion, or sincerity in the characters.  The premise is fine - but the execution is sketchy.  This is a practice piece that needs a lot more work - a lot more depth and a hell of a lot more pages.  I'm not a sucker - I know how this ends - it's not like she can give back the money - walk away - it's not like he will ever know that she really wants to be with him or if it's about the money. It's about the money - and I'm not giving any more of mine for this tripe.

I can say I quite enjoyed this book! The cool thing about it was that it was a quick read that kept you wanting to read more, it wasn't drawn out. So our main character, Sophie, is a virgin. She needs to make money fast and the only way to do that is to sell her body. That in itself isn't that much different then alot of indie author's books. It seems to be a recurrent theme in the books erotic indie authors write, I can say though that Kendall Ryan's is the only one I could actually read in it's fullness, none of the others I could deal with. And then our other main character Colton [Drake]. He obviously buys Sophie at the auction. And then there is the auction scene and we have the one big bad man, and then we have the male protagonist who "seems better" than all the others, yada yada. And then he is obviously hiding a secret which yet again isn't that original, it was kina obviouse throughout the whole book. So honestly, was this the best book I've read this year? No, far from it. But it was a quick read and I can say Kendall Ryan is one of the better indie authors I have read. The part that really irked me in this book is the bad grammer (yikes, there is a ton of it) and the fact that it wasn't very original, and I'm not going to say I fell in love with any of the characters because most of the time I got Sophie the protagonist and Stella the wife mixed up and honestly Colton had no loveable qualities to him. I will read the nex book in the series but I better be more impressed.

3.5 stars — I totally thought from the premise of the book that this one would be more erotica-ish. But it wasn’t really. Sure, it was an unconventional romance, but I wouldn’t say the steam was any higher than other adult romances. I was intrigued by the book, but I wasn’t wholly sucked in. I enjoyed the chemistry between Sophie and Colton, but I also grew frustrated knowing that a willful misunderstanding was about to occur…it was heavily foreshadowed. So just over halfway through, I started to become curious and looked at some reviews…only to learn that it’s not a series of standalones…or not quite anyways. Sophie and Colton’s story completes in book 2. Which is fine, though I wish I’d known beforehand, b/c I might have chosen a different book to read. By the time I got to the end, I was torn. The next book was a bit more than I wanted to spend, and while I was morbidly curious how it would end, I wasn’t sure if I was full price curious, you know? And after reading some reviews for the next book, I’ve decided not to continue…I just don’t think I’m invested enough to read another full book with these two. Both characters had good qualities and surprised me in good ways, but I also just didn’t feel invested in either of them. It’s a weird set of feelings, you know? I believed that Sophie had altruistic qualities wrt her sister, and I appreciated that she also understood that it was nice to have a break from that serious situation. But she also had a very strange attitude considering the nature of her relationship with Colton…she was suspicious, and demanding, and…it was just odd. Meanwhile Colton talks about all these odd sexual proclivities, and quite frankly I kept waiting. And I’m not always big when authors hint at some secret, but drags it out for the book. I’m not saying it’s wrong, it’s just not my personal preference. So we’re told over and over again that Colton has some dark secret, and while I did guess after awhile, I was kind of confused about how it fit with what Colton was thinking at the beginning. Then there’s the two of them together, and the way the relationship developed. I don’t know if I quite understood the feelings they developed, and the quickness of it. It’s a strange situation, and I guess I just didn’t always buy how that went. But hooboy, the steamy scenes were AMAZING. Even if it didn’t go where I expected, there was definitely great physical chemistry. So yeah…*sigh* I enjoyed myself, I just wasn’t as compelled as I was expecting. *shrugs* Ah well.

Book was written and signed once the truth about Colton was revealed. Loved it

Story was good, but getting really tired of not getting the entire story in one book. Even though I would like to know how the story ends, I am not buying another book.

When I picked up this book, it was originally because I just wanted to read something different. Something that was just simple and easy -- thoughtless. When I opened Filthy Beautiful Lies I never thought I would care about the characters, or wonder where they'll end up. Walking into this, I never imagined that I would be leaving with another amazing story to add to the countless others I hope to encounter. If you're looking for an erotica book that doesn't drop off as soon as the sex happens, if you're looking for an erotica book that has a decent plot, intriguing characters, and makes you wonder why all books aren't written like that, here you go. You can find this review, and many others, on the CommonBookSense blog:

Short quick read but has an interesting story line. Definitely enjoyed enough to continue the series. Not all books have to be a bazillion pages long. Worth the read.

Started out a nice story, but the cliffhanger killed it for me. I should have read more reviews beforehand. Interesting story, but i couldn't really get into the characters. Probably because it was rather, disappointinely short. Also it really bugged me that "conscience" was written as "conscious." And since when does a smile 'uncurl?" Better proof reading needed! Don't think i'll be reading any more from this writer. No one i know appreciates cliffhangers. I am a writer myself and admit i am critical, but this could have been written much better with a lot more thought put into it.

Loved it. Wasn't expecting a slow-burning love affair but that's what it was. Beautifully written. Adore Sophie and Colton. One-clicked immediately because that ending - holy cow, need to know what happens next. Absolutely superb. Best KR book I've read so far. I received a free copy of this book from the author as a mailing list subscriber.

Sophie starts this adventure to save her sister. And Colton starts it to have some release and a good time. Things quickly change and as they are learning each other a wrench is thrown in the mix. Great characters and storyline. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

This is the first book in the Beautiful Lies Series from the amazing Kendall Ryan. This book does end in a cliffhanger, however the entire series is out and available. Sophie is put into a terrible situation. She needs to raise a lot of money in a very short period of time in order to afford a new medical treatment for her sister who is dying of cancer. She is willing do almost anything, and a women who is desperate can be put into a very bad position. Sophie decided after failing to become a stripper that the only way to earn this type of money is to see her virginity to the highest bidder at a exclusive sex club. While it is hard to even image being in Sophie's position thank god she meets Drake or really Colten Drake. He tries to come off dark and mysterious but losses some of that when we get to meet his brothers. He does have the alpha dominate persona very well, especially in bed. Its a fast paced story that left me asking more questions then I had answers for. I can only assume that more if revealed in the next books. I'm a huge fan of Kendall Ryan's. She is a new author for me, but so far I've been consumed by all the books I have read from her. I love her writing style and really enjoy reading her novels. Can't wait till I pick up the next book in this series.

OMG, AWESOME. Sophie auctions off her virginity for money (her twin's medical expenses). She gets Hot as Hell Drake (Colton). He has secrets he is hiding from her. She becomes more that someone he paid to have around. Stella shows up and ruins it. Cliffhanger. Bought the next book instantly. I can see I will be going book to book in this series!. I was given a copy of this book since I subscribed to the authors newsletter.

Sophia Evan has to help her twin sister get a possible life saving experimental treatment. The only way she can come up with the $250,000 is to sell her virginity to the highest bidder. Mr. Drake becomes the highest bidder with his million dollar bid. Now, will Sophia become his sex slave for the next 6 months. That is the arrangement she has made. Will Sophia become broken or will she break Drake's heart. This is a sinfully, sexy, intense novel. The characters are well written. They are compelling, hot, sweet and sexy. I loved this book and couldn't put it down until I finished it! A great romance novel and I can't wait to dive into the second book!
