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 se ...more

Sexy, steamy, passionate and oh so satisfying!

I really enjoyed this second installment in the Blackstone Dynasty series. There is a familiar quality to all of Raine Miller’s stories for me, a sense of comfort akin to a safety blanket that overwhelms me whenever I open one of her books, and they never fail to leave me smiling in the end. There was no real angst or unnecessary drama, just a beautiful love story with lovable and down to earth characters and some extremely hot sex scenes thrown int

James Blakney and Winter Blackstone have known each other their whole lives, but at a distance. Not only did their ages always set them apart, but the fact that James was Caleb’s best friend didn’t help matters. That didn’t stop Winter from longing for the one man she couldn’t have, or stop James from the same. Unrequited love stories are sometimes the hardest yet juiciest to read and Raine Miller captured it beautifully in Filthy Lies.

Winter was a real sweetheart. Growing up in a life of privil

Filthy Lies is a book I've been dying to read ever since the last book, Filthy Rich ended. I'm a huge fan of the brothers-best-friend trope and also these characters really caught my attention at the end of the previous book. So I jumped into this one very excited to get more of James and Winter. And I did enjoy their story, but I also had a few issues with it that kept my rating from being higher that a 3 Star.

Winter has been in love with her brothers best friend for years. She has resigned to the fact that while James may see her as a woman, he will never act on it.

James noticed Winter long before what was appropriate but he knew she was off limits as his best friends little sister. After a disastrous relationship, James changed, became darker. It's no place for such a sweet woman like Winter. But what if she likes a little bit of the dark?

I was pleasantly surprised by this story based off the title

Raine Miller is back and she once again she transported me to a world of pure romance, sexiness and characters to cherish and love for years to come. James and Winter's story will make you swoon and turn the pages giving us the most perfect ending to this novel. It is lovely to see characters from Blackstone Dynasty Book 1 and totally look forward to the next one as since book 1 Raine Miller is giving us very intriguing hints and I'm really sooo curious about what happened there.

An exciting and steamy new romance from Raine Miller!

Filthy Lies was filthy good!

I was so incredibly anxious to dive back into the illustrious and complex Blackstone World! In Filthy Rich, we were given Caleb Blackstone’s story. This time, we take the journey with his younger sister, Winter, and James Blakney, Caleb’s best friend. Secrets unfold, lies are uncovered, and lines are crossed on their path to find love and happiness.

This book was a wonderful read! Winter and James were two halves of
Meh, this didn’t really work for me. I read the Blackstone trilogy years ago and loved it but this lacked the depth of those books that totally gripped me and I had no emotional connection with the characters. The plot seemed to jump around, there was no real tension and he was supposedly a Dom but he behaved like a sap, pushed around by his father. Shame.

You could probably read this as a standalone.

AHHHH! I can’t stop smiling. I can’t stop sighing. I can’t stop swooning. I can’t stop feeling and loving Filthy Lies! Ever since I met Naked over four years ago, the first book in The Blackstone Affair series by Raine Miller, I’ve been bewitched! I’ve loved this series from the very first page—from Ethan and Brynne to James and Winter—and will never get enough!

I’ve been starving for another whack at a Raine Miller read and I’ve been finally granted an answer!! Squeeeeeee!!

Winter Blackstone—- and yes, she is related to Ethan Blackstone— has always carried a torch for James Blakney. Ever since she was 15 years old.

Now all grown up and on the path to success, not to mention, cohabiting in the same building, fate has branded them together in this sensual read of
These books are definitely turning way more "cotton candy" than what Raine Miller previously shown us. Not to say that that's a bad thing, I particularly enjoy a sweet romance novel, especially when the main characters been secretly pining for each other for years, that is nothing more than a good and simple romance novel without the need to pretend to be something more than that.
And this one definitely filled my quota.

OK, so I was DYING for their story and yet I couldn't help but feel underwhelmed. I agree with another review, for me, it took WAY TOO LONG for anything to actually happen. I almost felt like there was too much in the head talking and descriptive scenes of everything except what I wanted and that was MORE talking and MORE interacting between Winter and James. For me, the chemistry was there, the affection and love between the two was THERE soooooo for me, this author could have made the

From the first moment I met James Blakney and Winter Blackstone in Filthy Rich, I couldn't wait to read their story. There was something forbidden and complicated about their relationship and I couldn't wait to find out why.

It is always sweet bliss picking up a Raine Miller book. I am thoroughly in love and enjoying the American Blackstone world that Raine is gifting to us. We were first introduced to Winter and James in Filthy Rich, the first book in this series that revolved around Caleb Blackstone and his beautiful girl, Brooke.

I’m selective when it comes to choosing a favorite author and, like a large number of readers out there, Raine Miller is one of my automatic one-click authors. Whenever she publishes a new book, I know I’m in for a great story. She’s one of the authors I can easily recommend without having previewed her latest novel ahead of time.

Raine Miller’s writing style is effortless and she had me riveted to this book from start to finish. I cannot wait for the next book in the series. As with other books I have read by Ms. Miller, the story was brilliantly written, her characters were exceedingly well developed, not only James and Winter but her supporting characters as well.

Yes, I felt the chemistry between James and Winter. I love a good "I loved you forever" kind of theme and that was very well developed and written here. But it took me almost a week to finish this book and that never

And it's a safe bet she'll never stop, because now she writes them too! Granted Raine's stories are edgy enough to turn Ms. Cartland in her grave, but to her way of thinking, a hot, sexy hero never goes out of fashion.

“I could never be with Winter the way I wanted to be. I could never have her. Not how I’d dreamed of having her when my innermost fantasies took over within my twisted headspace.
Winter was too good.
She was too sweet.
She was just too perfectly innocent…for the likes of me.”
“You’re a saint, and I’m a sinner. There’s a huge difference between us, and don’t you ever forget it.”
She shook her head against me. “Not so different. And I’m definitely no saint, James.”

Oh fuck. Here we go. The gloves were being thrown down for the first time, and Winter was the one brave enough to go there. My dick started throbbing as I took in her words. Oh, baby, you are fucking awesome.
