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.

I wasn’t expecting to like Filthy Beautiful Lies. I doubt freebies these days but I had just downloaded another book about a female character auctioning her virginity and I just wanted to give this one a chance too. You can read my review about that book here but I actually enjoyed this one more. This is a surprise if you know how much I love Alexa Riley’s books.

It all starts when Sophie decides to sell her virginity to pay the feeds to save her sister. Sophie loves her twin more than anything but I also felt bad for her since most of her life, everyone’s focus have been on Becca. She’s sick, so no wonder, but that doesn’t mean that Sophie doesn’t deserve some attention too.

“You need to understand you’re mine to look after.”

It’s not all flowers and roses where hero sees heroine and falls immediately in love. Instead Drake aka Colton only bid her as a revenge when he didn’t get the girl he wanted. Sophie finds it sexy that he’s sure, calculated and strong. But then Colton starts to get to know Sophie and he actually likes who she is.

It all ends in a cliffhanger and instead of being mad about it, like I’m usually about the books I think are standalones but then end that way. I enjoyed this one so much that I’m actually thinking of getting the second book. I’d recommend this one if you’re in the mood of something realistic instead of fluffy and won’t mind that you’ll feel compelled to get the second book. I want to know more about Colton’s brothers and Sophie’s twin in the next installment besides finding out about what happens with Sophie and Colton.
