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

I am writing this review based on Book 1 and 2 together
I really enjoyed this book. I loved reading a different twist on the millionaire meets the naive virgin story that has been told many times. I found myself really excited to see what happens next.
I loved that it wasn't an instalove story. Even thought it takes place over a few months the author showed the time passing so it wasn't always feeling like one day immediately after another.
I loved that the reaction to the "secret" was reasonable and not blown over the top and I loved that the resolve was also reasonable and didn't consist of either of them loosing themselves or doing something they didn't want to do.
Now for what I DON'T love...
I have a pet peeve with books that are two short novellas that should have just been one book. Why are we doing this?? It seems to be a trend that I'm seeing now and it is irritating. I don't feel like this book should have taken up TWO of my audible credits and I don't think I would have wanted to pay the almost $30 I would have had to pay for both books. I would love for someone to explain why this is being done outside of making more money for what should be one book.
Second the narrator had a great female voice and did great with the female parts, however I really wish she had a different tone for the male voice and would commit to it each time. There were times where I would have to pause the audio to do something else and then I would come back mid chapter and have to try to figure out who was speaking between the two main characters. I like when I can vision the male based on the voice and the character the author was writing should not have had a voice so feminine.
This could have been a 5 star book for me if not for these two things.

I didn't pay attention that this was a 2-book series. The story was not BDSM as one would think after having virginity auctioned off. The first book was character development, second book the romance. Slow and steady wins the race.

This was a wonderful story that had me laughing and crying. The performance by Ava Erickson was spot on.
Is there anything you would change about this book?
Combine book 1 and 2 into one story and add a male narrator. I really enjoy Ava's narration but for the male POV I would have loved a male narrator.

Sweet low angst story that was enjoyable.
I thought the poor girl was going to die a virgin.
It was good. Just moved slow. Not much angst.
This story could've been the typical millionaire meets virgin but its so much better. It begins with the forbidden but twists into more as things develop between Colton and Sophie. This second book picks up the pace. Now with much of their back stories revealed, the book progresses into steamier moments and there's beauty between people who allowed their relationship to develop slowly and honestly. They're absolutely charming. Loved it!
Warning: Be ready to begin the next book right away.
This is the ending to the series. It was more emotional and heartfelt than the first. More character development. Nice tead
This book is just flatly frustrating! The whole story doesn't have depth. Its repetitive and the conversation goes on and on like a loop.
The book took a different route then I would have thought but in the end it's s sweet love story. I did cry during the story. The bond Sophie shared with her twin sister is sweet. The sex was hot.
It felt a little repetitive and it took way too long for them to have sex. I finished the first book in a day while this one it took me a long week to complete.
