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.

I am in love with Kendall Ryan’s Filthy Beautiful Series. I never thought anyone could out do Colton Drake whose books are Filthy Beautiful Lies and Filthy Beautiful Love, but I was wrong, SO wrong! Pace Drake just stole my heart in this book and I am pretty sure he is still running with it.
Pace is the little brother of Colton. He is a sexy, friendly, so self-confident, relaxed, layed back PLAYER. He wants to feel good and knows he does the same for others, why stop something your good at right?? Meaningless sex, no feelings involved, no hurt and no commitment is the way Pace rolls that is until he meets Kylie….
We met Kylie in Colton’s books. She works for Colton and is a single mom who only has time for one little man, her son. She’s been hurt in the past and guards her heart. With no time for dating and no time for fun, she really has no time whatsoever for a man like Pace Drake. She’s heard all the stories, knows how he operates but for some reason she still feels that pull.
It first started when Pace was holding Max in the pool at Colton and Sophie’s party. You could tell she felt something then. Seeing a man with her son, caring for him just tugged at her heart. But you know Colton, he knows his brother and warned Pace to stay away, that was until the ever so beautiful Sophie stepped in.
“You’re crass.” Her eyes light up and her mouth twitches in an attempt not to smile. “I’’m direct, and you like it.” She shrugs. “At lease your honest. That’s more than I can say for most men.”
Kylie is dead set on what Pace is all about, but he is determined to show her that she is worth giving up his former ways. He has a tough road ahead of him and when Kylies past shows up years too late, will it destroy all the work Pace has put in to trying to making her see they belong together?
This book really will just suck you in. Seeing a man completely accept another man’s child and handling situations in this book like Pace did, he just won me over completely. I loved this story and I cant wait for Collins story which is up next!! As with the other books, I give this 5 Stars. I could honestly sit down and read the story again!
I still recall that day in the pool last summer when I’d
taken the crying baby from her and entertained him all afternoon. I couldn’t
even be sure why I’d done it. I suppose, looking back, she just looked like she
could use a hand. I’ve never liked seeing a woman struggle. Although a damsel
in distress, she is not. I get the sense she’s not the type to back down from a
challenge and has enough strength and determination to succeed at just about
anything she tried. A sexy quality, to be sure.
As we stand there, me sipping my bourbon, and Kylie grinning
politely at the crowd, the silence between us grows. I feel like we have
nothing in common, and I’m at a loss, trying to think of something to say,
anything that will keep this beauty in my presence. There are so many things I
want to know about her, but none of them are any of my goddamn business. How
she tastes, what noises she makes when she comes. I also want to know how she
ended up a single mother, and if Max’s dad is still in the picture. I tried
asking Colton about it once, but he remained incredibly vague. The asshat. If
there was a worst wingman award, it would go to my brother.
“Have dinner with me this week,” I say. It wasn’t
what I’d been planning to say, but once the words leave my mouth, they feel
“Pace, that’s sweet of you to ask, but I can’t…”
She pauses, like she wants to say more, but doesn’t. Her body language is all
wrong too. Where women are normally vying to get closer, placing their hand on
my bicep, or even brushing their breasts against my arm, Kylie stands straight
and tall, like she wants to avoid physical contact at all costs.
“Are you here with someone?” I ask. It’s also
absolutely none of my business, but I’d happily shell out ten grand just to
find out if she’s fucking someone.
“No,” she confirms.
“No boyfriend?” I press further. I need to know
what I’m up against.
“There’s been no one since Max’s father,” she says
My inner alpha male beats on his chest in triumph.
“That’s quite a dry spell.”
“Indeed,” she murmurs.
“It’s just dinner, Kylie. It’s not like I’m offering to
step in and play daddy.” I treat her to a playful, crooked smile, my
dimple out in full force. I’ve heard it’s quite irresistible and that’s what
I’m banking on.
“That’s exactly why I can’t. I’m sorry.”
Fuck. Why am I such a fucking idiot?
“Oh,” I stammer, at a loss for words for the first
damn time in my life. Christ. Grow a pair, Pace.
“Besides, something tells me if you’re interested in a
woman like that,” Kylie tips her chin toward the bar where Sheena, or
Trina, is making a spectacle of herself, “you can’t possibly be interested
in a woman like me.”
Hold the fuck on. Now that’s where she’s wrong. “Why’s
that?” I ask, meeting her fiery green gaze. If she’s about to criticize
herself, I will not hold back in proving to her how very wrong she is.
“Pace,” she admonishes. “Look at her. They
When I realize she’s not tearing herself down, but instead
chastising my taste in women, I almost want to laugh. “A woman like that
is good for only one thing and we both know it,” I say.
She raises her eyebrows, waiting for me to explain.
“One good fuck,” I continue.
“You’re crass.” Her eyes light up, and her mouth
twitches in an attempt not to smile.
“I’m direct, and you like it.”
She shrugs. “At least you’re honest. That’s more than I
can say for most men.”
“Go out with me. One time, Kylie. What do you have to
I can practically see the wheels turning in her head, and for
one brief, beautiful moment I think I might have a chance. “Bye
Pace.” She turns and walks away, her long legs carrying her across the
room while my heart throbs.
She turns and tosses me a sexy wink. “Go have fun with
This is not over.
I play to win.

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.
