Meet Sexy Collins Drake


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.

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.

Best Book Boyfriends of 2014

Well since this year is coming to a close I wanted to share with you my top 10 books that I read in 2014 along with the top book boyfriends that accompany each book. I will share why I liked that book boyfriend, my favorite quote, and my favorite memory of them. By the way it won't be my only favorite memory because I don't want to ruin the story to you with a spoiler so I will choose one that won't reveal too much. So lets get started.  


Noah: The most epic book boyfriend that I read this year. He is the sweetest guy ever and he never left Tweet (Amanda). He was always by her side, even when she would push him away. This story blew my mind with their deep love and powerful journey. It truly deserves to be read (alone preferably if you don't want others to see you cry like a crazy person). 

Favorite Quote:

He had way to many but I limited myself to two:

“You’ve always been my girl and always will be. No one will ever take me away from you, Tweet. You’re my heart and soul and that’s never going to change, no matter what you say.” 

“Nothing has ever been a waste when it comes to you. Not my time, my thoughts, or my heart. I don’t regret anything about my life with you, even the times we were apart. Those times showed me how much I belonged to you. I knew we would be together one day. I just had to be patient and wait. And you were so worth waiting for.” 

Favorite Memory: 

Even at a young age, Noah captured my heart. The sweetest memory to me was when Noah and Tweet were young on Halloween. Noah became Tweets night in plastic armor when he gave Amanda (in a tweety bird costume which was how it became her nickname) half his candy. He took her by the hand and they went trick or treating together. 


Cam: *sigh* just hearing his name makes me swoon. Cam really is one of the best. The way he takes care of Lucy and how their story began was truly amazing. This book is one of my all time favorites in the series. Jay McLean is truly one of the best authors I have read. Cam melts my heart every time he helps Lucy, even when she refuses him and even when people tell him that it's not his responsibility. Lucy is crazy fun and lovable especially when she is drunk Lucy. I love these characters so much. 

Favorite Quote:

“There is a love so fierce it cannot be measured. A heart so strong it will never slow. There is a promise so sure it can never lie. And we promise that love forever. Forever and always” 

Favorite Memory:

For sure all their moments together are awesome but my favorite one is their first kiss. Theirs is the funniest and most amazing first 
kiss anyone can ever share. Hearing it from Lucy's POV is incredible. 
Soft lips.
Lucy is just too funny. Luce and Cam forever. Team Luca.


Roth: Roth is such a hot caring Upper Level Demon that you just can't help but fall for him (obviously that is why I choose the White Hot Kiss book to display). He is really cocky but everything he says means something. I like how he tells the truth to Layla. I could so see the hidden truths behind his words in Stone Cold Touch. To fight his every instinct as a Demon and show his love and careful ways to Layla just undoes me. These two books turned out to be really great. Team Roth until the end.

Favorite Quote:

“I lost myself the moment I found you.” 

Favorite Memory:

Ok I can't really share my favorite memory without ruining it for you guys so I will just say a little bit about it. So Roth and his sacrifice and his love for Layla is so great that he will do anything for her. That is why I love his so much. He will do anything for her even if it will hurt him and that is just too sweet. I am sure those of you who have read this will know exactly with part I am talking about. 


Jonah: So #TeamJonah all the way. Who cares if Jonah is a vampire. His love for Lailah is pure enough that even his Vampire ways can't separate them. For sure it took me some time to fall in love with him but in the end I could see him and just how much he cared for Lailah. He sacrificed his own hunger not to leave her alone and that says a lot. This book was so good that I read it too quickly and I wished I could of taken my time. It was really unique and not at all like other Vampire books. It is a really different book but just as great or even better than many others. I really recommend this book.

Favorite Quote:

"I might desire the darkness within her, but I fell in love with the light that I heard in her laughter."

Favorite Memory:

My favorite memory accompanies that quote. Gabriel gets schooled haha. Kind of. Gabriel asks Jonah why he didn't let his thirst take over and his response was amazing. I love that he accepts her both sides while Gabriel barley came to acknowledge them. Jonah is just amazing and this that exact quote and his response is what makes my decision of going #TeamJonah easy.


Jace: We all know why Jace is so worthy of being a book boyfriend. He is amazing, cocky, and fierce. He is everything I want a book boyfriend to be. This final book was really amazing and it was a good end to the series no matter how sad I am that it ended. I loved how Cassandra Clare tied in the characters for her other soon to come trilogy The Dark Artifices. This book was everything I wanted it to be. I don't know how Clare packs in so much shock, adventure, and twists into one book. She is truly amazing. 

Favorite Quote:

“There are a hundred trillion cells in the human body, and every single one of the cells of my body loves you. We shed cells, and grow new ones, and my new cells love you more than the old ones, which is why I love you more every day than I did the day before. It’s science. And when I die and they burn my body and I become ashes that mix with the air, and part of the ground and the trees and the stars, everyone who breathes that air or sees the flowers that grow out of the ground or looks up at the stars will remember you and love you, because I love you that much.” 

Favorite Memory:

Hmmm...Jace and Clary in that cave. Enough said.


Daemon: So of course Daemon had to be included in this category. Im sure he would be offended if he was left out. Plus he just melts my heart every time he calls Katy Kitten. He had my heart ever since the beginning of this series. Even through his strong personality and all his cockiness his love for Katy pours out of his heart. He will do anything for her and thats's why he is amazeballs. This book was really great and it had a lot of twist. I had a lot of fun reading it.

Favorite Quote: 

“Kat.” He uttered my name like it was some kind of prayer, and then he pressed a kiss against the skin behind my ear. “I broke every rule of my kind to heal you and keep you with me. I … burned down an entire city to keep you safe. I’ve killed for you. Did you think I’d forget what you mean to me? That anything in this world— in any world— would be stronger than my love for you?” 

Favorite Memory:

This is an easy one. I love all of them but there is a special one that is so really amazing. When Kat and Daemon sneak of to do you know what. They love each other so much and they don't need to prove anything but it means a lot to them to have that paper even though it is not truly real since it doesn't include their real names. I think it is sweet that they do that.


Kaidan Rowe: Since the very beginning Kai had my heart. I waiting until the third book came out to read this series and let just say I read these books real fast, like in less than a week. They had me hooked. Having Kai in the book had me hooked. He is supposed to be a bad boy but he will do anything for Anna. Man I really like the bad boys huh? Almost all these top ten book boyfriends are bad in some way. I just can't help but love them. #isighforKai

Favorite Quote:

“This is our home tonight. Anywhere with you is my home.” 

"I watched him swallow, then close his eyes as a shiver ran through his body. When he opened his eyes again, color poured through the air around him--the vivid, hot pink of passionate love."

Favorite Memory: 

When Kai proposes something to Anna....


Maxon: He is incredibly swoon worthy in this book and I love him. This book was really good and a great way to end the series. Although I was really sad to see it come to a close. The book had everything I wanted in it. The romance was incredible and the plot was really good. I was a bit shocked sometimes and then I turned out to like someone that I hated since the very beginning (Celeste). Im really happy with this book and it deserves to be on my Top Ten.

Favorite Quotes:

"'I want you, America,' he murmured into my ear. 'I want you to be mine alone. And I want to give you everything.' His lips kissed their way across my cheek, stopping at the corner of my mouth. 'I want to give you things you didn't know you wanted.'"

"I'm going to love you more than any man has ever loved a woman, more than you ever dreamed you could be loved. I promise you that."

Favorite Memory: 

When America and Maxon get you know what...oh and every time Maxon says really sweet and swoon worthy things to America. *sigh*


Guy: He is quite a mystery but he grows on you quickly. It takes a while for their relationship to develop but I like it right away. I like Guy right away. I can tell he has feelings for Tella and it shows in the way he tries to protect her. This book was actually very amazing and I loved the Pandoras that the Contenders were given to help them win the race to get a cure for their loved ones that are dying. These little lovelies are quite cute but also dangerous. They make it real interesting, especially Tella's pandora. This book was different and captivating. I am sure many of you will enjoy it.

Favorite Quote:

"Before I can ask what it says, he presses his lips against mine.  The letter flutters to the bed and I twine my arms around his neck.  Guy pulls me closer and kisses me deeper until all thoughts of the race vanish.  He kisses me me until there are only him and me and the feel of our skin.  I shiver as his hands move up my back and wrap around my neck.  Hi tongue slides into my mouth and heat floods my body.  I want to live here, in this moment-with him this close and me in his arms."

Favorite Memory:

Their first kiss...


Will: This boy right here is really swoon worthy. I would say more than his dad Josh from the book Faithful. I didn't think anyone could compete with my boy Josh but of course he would teach his son to be a gentlemen. He really took my breath away especially with the way he treated Alex. Will stayed true to Alex even through the roughest times when they were apart. It was Alex that surprised me but no matter what Alex did, Will stayed faithful until the end. That is why I love him so much. So with my love for Kelly Elliott of course I was going to include on of her books in my Top Ten of 2014. I will always read any book she writes no matter what because she is one of the first authors I fell in love with. I will always like her work. I am just glad that she continues with the next generations in books because I get to see the characters parents and their children and see that their love continues.

Favorite Quote:

“True love is a forever love. It is tested and tried all the time. It's sometimes broken, but it always, always heals itself. It stands strong during the storms, even when it feels like it is about to fall apart. Love's roots grow stronger and deeper after the storm. That's true love. There are ups and downs. You just weather them.”

Favorite Memory:

My favorite memory for sure has to be when Alex was 10 years old and she was talking to her momma Ellie. She said that Will was THE one. She knew all along that they would be together even when her momma kinda doubted it. It was too cute.

Books from 2014 that deserve to be mentioned:

Ok so there you have it folks my Best Book Boyfriends of 2014 accompanied by their books. This was a great year and I am ready for the next year along with more great books to come. Please tell me what your favorite books of 2014 were. I would love to know!
