This would be great as a movie. It’s kind of a cross between a Hallmark movie and a Lifetime movie. A wonderful love story with trauma and survival. With an Nicholas Sparks type of ending. The narration was spot on. Loved this story!

Re •sent •ment: The act of hating - no, f--king loathing Dean Collins. (Yes, I'm well aware that's not the actual definition, but it might as well be....) It's been 10 years since we've seen each other, and the feelings are still as strong. I'm not going to bore you with all the details of how our love was once intoxicating, consuming, and perfect. Because it was...until it wasn't. I've been fine without him. I haven't missed his cruelty, his coldness, and his spite. And after the ugliest breakup in the history of breakups, I forced myself to move on.

I loved this story except for one very important thing. I thought maybe his father was messing with their messages or something other than the interception of the birthday card and balloons. I know he was hurting and not sure what to do, but it wasn’t her fault that he didn’t tell her. What he did to her is no comparison to what he thought she was doing to him. She tried to talk to him and ask him what was wrong. He didn’t even try. I’m glad they had there HEA but he got off the hook to easily. You would think that when she asked him years later what happened he would just say it. I had a best friend once who all of a sudden got very angry with me and stopped speaking to me. I asked her what was wrong and she just said “you know “. To this day I still don’t know what I did. I wish there had been someone interfering with their communication. It would have been easier to except his being a jerk.

On paper, I've got it all - good looks, good friends, a killer business, and gorgeous women throwing themselves at me from every corner of the globe. But I still can't get one woman out of my head. Her. Adeline Klein, the sexiest little smartass in wire-rimmed glasses and a polka-dot bikini to ever bring a man to his knees.

I haven’t read all of Lili Valente’s books but I have read quite a few of them. This one was a little different. It gave a well developed background of the lovers before it even got close to their present day story. It also had some interesting twists that made for a great story. Loved it!

He's sexy and confident, the kind of man every woman notices. You know, the one with the to-die-for body and panty-melting smirk. And then there's the way his designer suits drape over his broad shoulders and big...well, we've all heard the rumors, the ones that say he's up for any challenge. But I can't see him that way. He's my boss - technically one of the owners of the company where I work - and definitely not in my league. Men like him don't notice women like me, and they don't date them.

The ending was a bit rushed. Especially the lawsuit part. It seemed it was leading up to an intense drama and then it's just gone. I think it was there to show he would do anything for her. Which was against his nature. I also would have liked to have seen an enter action with her and his mother.Other than that I loved the story.

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 would never want to leave again. Highly sexual and emotionally charged, Filthy Beautiful Love is the provocative conclusion to Filthy Beautiful Lies.

I liked the story but couldn’t stand the performance. I probably wouldn’t have listened if I hadn’t already listened to the first two books. It was hard for me to like Lance because of her interpretation. I was hoping after hearing her performance on the last story that she would have changed his voice since he was the lead. He sounded like the overdone villain. At least she’s consistent, unfortunately.
I don’t usually write reviews but I don’t think I can listen to another book by this reader.
