Review Tour - Filthy Beautiful Lust by Kendall Ryan

Title: Filthy Beautiful Lust
Series: Filthy Beautiful Lies #3
Authors: Kendall Ryan
Release Date: November 10, 2014


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.



Oh Pace… We met both Pace and Kylie in Colton and Sophie’s stories, and I was so excited that they were going to get a book! I enjoyed their story even more than Colton’s, but I still loved seeing Colton, Sophie, and the rest of the gang throughout this entire book.

Kylie is a single mom whose baby daddy left her the moment she found out she was pregnant. Pace is a playboy – a hit-it-and-quit-it kind of guy – and Colton’s younger brother. However, something about Kylie speaks to him and the fact that she has a son makes him like her even more.

Kylie has a hard time opening up to anyone, but is especially distrustful with young, sexy, wealthy men.

“I have personal experience with men like him. They’re looking for no-strings sex. And considering the last guy I was with played ding-dong-ditch-it with my uterus, and left me with a baby to raise, I’m more than a teensy bit skeptical about men like him.”

Pace has never had a woman say no to him, and that makes Kylie even more special. Slowly and carefully, Pace breaks down Kylie’s walls and gets her to accept him into her and Max’s lives.  

The dynamic between Pace and Max is the best part of this story! Having two young boys myself, I felt that emotion Kylie would get seeing the two of them together. There is nothing sexier than a man who is good with kids.

I love a good playboy turned a one-woman man story and that is exactly what Filthy Beautiful Lust is. It was sexy, sizzling, funny, and emotional!

“That’s it baby.” Pace’s big hand curls around my hip, guiding my movements. “Ride it like you own it,” he says, bringing his mouth to mine.

I finished it in just a few hours because I could not put it down! I am looking forward to Collins’ story. 5 stars

When we first met Pace in Filthy Beautiful Lies, I couldn't wait to read more about him.  I was so excited to find out he was getting his own book.  

Pace is a player, and only sleeps around.  He doesn't have relationships.  So when he meets Kylie, a single mom of a baby boy, he's in for something he isn't used to.  Pace is attracted to Kylie right away, and when she turns him down, he doesn't know what to do.  He isn't used to rejection. 

Kylie is definitely attracted to Pace, but runs the other way because of her past history with relationships. Her son's father left her when she was pregnant, and now she has a hard time with trusting men.  She knows that if she is going to be in a relationship again, she needs someone stable and ready for something serious.  Pace isn't what she is looking for, but can she resist him?

Even though Kylie pushes Pace away, Pace doesn't give up.  He keeps coming around and ends up being there when she finally needs someone else to help her; even if she believes she doesn't need help. Pace is so great with her son, Max.  When someone from the past threatens Pace's place in Kylie's life he pulls out all the stops to prove to her that they should be together.

I absolutely loved this book, and I couldn't help but devour it.  After reading Filthy Beautiful Lust, Pace has become my favorite of the Drake brothers.  Now I can't wait to read about Collins! 5 Stars

This is the third book in the Filthy Beautiful Lies series and Ms. Ryan just keeps topping herself! I started this book in the wee hours of the morning, and could not put it down. Yes, I snuck in a few pages during work because it had me all worked up; I just had to find out what was going to happen!

Pace Drake, a gorgeous playboy, has never had the itch to settle down…until he really starts noticing Kylie.

Sweet, caring Kylie only has eyes for one man in her life and that's Max, her 1 year old son. Ever since her heart was shattered by the one she thought loved her, Kylie has avoided all men, especially men like Pace.

Colton, Pace's brother, warns him to leave Kylie alone because she's not one of his fu*k-them-and-leave-them conquests, but rather someone that deserves the world and a HEA. Pace knows that he will have to show Kylie that he can be that man, and goes above and beyond to prove that to her. What really made me chuckle is how he used Max to get to Kylie in doing so!

Despite it all, Kylie still has reservations because of the heartache that she's gone through. Not only does she not think Pace really wants her, especially since she has "baggage", she is also nothing like the woman Pace usually has.

I must say Pace has quite a mouth on him, one that is not only used on words, but other things as well...**coughs** The interaction between Pace and Kylie is beautiful, intense, scorching hot and swoonworthy! *Sighs* To be honest, I wanted MORE of Kylie and Pace. Ms. Ryan, please tell me there will be more of this beautiful couple! 5 Scorching Hot Stars
