Filthy Lies (Blackstone Dynasty Book 2) by Raine Miller

Filthy Lies (Blackstone Dynasty Book 2) by Raine Miller is a story that makes me think of wish fulfillment in its hottest form, even with the lies that came with it!

Synopsis:

On the day I turned fifteen years old I knew I loved James Blakney. There was a look in his eye that told me he’d finally noticed I existed in a realm beyond best-friend’s-much-younger-off-limits-don’t-even-think-about-it-little-sister. Call it womanly intuition, despite the fact I was barely qualified for being an actual woman at just fifteen—and only in the biological sense—but still, I knew I loved him.

What I never expected from him was a proposal of marriage nearly eight years later. I know it's not supposed to be a real marriage, but James is certainly making it feel that way.

He's also hiding something from me.

But I've hidden the truth from him as well.

Lies.

So many filthy lies.

Ceej’s Review:

Filthy Lies is a story that makes me think of wish fulfillment in its hottest form, even with the lies that came with it.  How many of us find our decade-old wish coming true when it comes to love?  My question is, would we still wish for it if we knew there was going to be unimaginable pain that comes with it? 

Winter Blackstone is the kind of woman that I want to be.  She’s good.  Her heart is huge and filled with the beautiful need to genuinely help others without thought to how it would make her look or of recompense.  I think of all people, Winter deserved to have all her wishes come true.  However, the pain she had to endure?  I would have taken it from her if I could.  That’s how good she is.

James Blakney is a man that has this beautiful, loving, generous, and huge…heart.  His physical surprise is a delicious one, I might say.  James could be a horribly bitter man who turned his pain into vengeance on every female within reach.  BUT he’s not.  And his predilections are delicious, and what make him perfect for me.  The part of him that I absolutely LOVE though, is his love for Winter.  The realness and depth of it is simply beautiful.

Raine Miller, I LOVED Filthy Lies.  I think it shows the strength of this family in the way they deal with the lies and moving on.  Funny how it takes pain to teach people how to appreciate every bit of life.
