When I meet secondary characters in a book, I can't help but start formulating their stories in my head, way before an author has even announced whether or not they're going to write books for them. James and Winter are no exception. I picked up on little things while reading Filthy Rich that caused me to start wondering what their backstory is. And after Raine announced Filthy Lies would be about this couple, I couldn't wait to dive in and see if anything I thought up for them would come true. Yeah, nothing I thought of is what happens. What Raine gives us is SO much better than anything I could have imagined. That is why she is the master storyteller and I need to stick to just being a faithful reader!
James and Winter have known each other for most of their lives. Winter is the little sister of James's best friend, Caleb, so that automatically puts her in the off limits category, right? Hopefully not, if Winter has anything to say about it.
Raine weaves a complex tale of two people who come from privilege and all its trappings, trying to break free of the constraints and expectations set for them and live their lives on their own terms. But demands from James's father has him moving in a direction he never thought would come to fruition. How does he carefully balance what his father is expecting from him with the wholly real feelings he has for Winter? And how does he reveal all of himself to her, without scaring her away?
Winter has an incredibly mature head on her shoulders for such a young lady. It is obvious that she has been raised to be independent and self sufficient, even though she has a huge inheritance waiting for her. An inheritance that she could put to good use in her chosen field of Social Work, if she didn't have to wait to turn 30 to get it. Or get married, whichever comes first...
The chemistry and passion between James and Winter is incredible. Their sexy times are oh so sexy! But they also have a shared respect for each other that has been there for as long as they can remember. Having the added benefit of being around each other all their lives and knowing everything (almost) about each other certainly is a benefit when it comes to knowing what the other's wants and needs are.
There's several twists and turns and revelations that cause a bumpy road that James and Winter have to travel to make it to their happily ever after and I admit I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to see if they were ever going to get there. A certain despicable character made me want to go a little ballistic on them with the things they said, and the actions they took, but they got their just desserts in the end.
I am blissfully happy with how Winter and James's story unfolded. I now have my eye on the next two characters from that world that I want to see a story written for. If you have been anything like me and have been craving a new Raine Miller book told in her beautifully classic storytelling, you will get your wish with this one! I can't wait for everyone to read it!!
Winter is studying for her Masters in Social Work. She has a huge heart and wants so badly to help those who truly need it, and though she knows she can do good, she has to wait six years until she comes of age to claim her inheritance… unless she marries.
James is a corporate lawyer who is being forced into marriage by his controlling father. And the first person he thinks of is Winter. He has wanted her for years, he suspects he may even love her, but he figures that his desires run too dark for her sweetness so he has kept his distance… until now.
It seems the perfect solution – a marriage of convenience to help both of them out. But they very quickly realise that nothing between them could ever be fake, and as they finally open up about their long-hidden feelings, all of that chemistry and UST explodes into a love that neither of them realised was possible.
I love that this book just dives onto into the relationship with James and Winter already feeling so much for each other when we meet them. From the very beginning I was absolutely hooked and I didn’t feel like I was missing any build up at all. It was clear what they both felt, I felt it right along with them, and I loved the fantastic dynamic between them.
And so freaking hot! Yes, James likes his kink, and there is talk of him frequently hitting up an underground sex club but nothing too nasty going on. Sexually, there is a bit of a D/s vibe, but it’s very tame, and restricted to the bedroom and Winter is naturally just as into it as James is. They are a perfect match in every way, and the sexy time is sizzling.
The sexy time is balanced by the beautifully swoony love story as James and Winter go all-in with their hearts, holding nothing back, until secrets and betrayal unexpectedly threaten everything they have built together.
I loved this book. James and Winter are so fantastic together, and I loved watching their love story play out. There’s involvement from both of their families, which added a lot to the book, and I excited for the series to continue, and am hoping for a book for Lucas and Victoria soon!

There is something so moreish about this couple. Every page turn, every scene, I just wanted more of their goodness, more of their passion, more of their love & adoration & more of their tenderness. Through Raine’s stunning prose & ability to make me feel all the beautiful emotions she had woven into their story, this couple have fast become one of my favourites of the year.
James... sigh this man is magnificent. My poor heart couldn’t cope with how beautiful his heart is, once it’s opened & laid bare. He loves with his entire being & boy what I wouldn’t give to be the centre of this mans universe.
Winter.. Beautiful & giving. She is like sunshine on a cloudy day & she made my heart sing with her generous love & endless compassion. This girl is beautiful to her bones & I loved her hard.
Their whole story was perfect. I loved the fact their was no angst or drama for dramas sake, but rather layered in all the places & ways that mattered, even if it did break my heart. I adored how hard they loved & just how how strong that love was in order to get their HEA. I hate to say it, but I miss them already.
Without doubt one of my Top Reads of 2018 !!
Love it, and highly recommend it!
I'm not going to give anything away but boy this book was five amazing stars.
The Blackstone legacy at its finest.
It all started with this prologue. I was worrying where it would go. It set the tone for the book and made it an absolute page turner. Raine Miller and her amazing writing had me with just these few pages.
I love James and his little secret. This might be just me, because I have a huge thing for that. Such a turn on. I loved his overall demeanor. Even with the family that he has, he became a great man with the right amount of chivalrous manners and dominance and gentleness.
I also loved Winter. Her determination is just so awesome! She does what she wants and not what everyone would expect her to do. She is another great badass heroine who doesn’t take s*** from anyone.
They’ve been friends forever since their families have been close. But since James is Caleb’s best friend, Winter as Caleb’s little sister is off limits...or so it was. With James father having political ambitions, he is expecting certain things from his son. Even though James doesn’t give a cent about this, it brings Winter to front and center of his mind not in a friendship way. One little accident changes all and friends finally reveal how they really feel for each other. While discovering what is between them, their families and their respective issues have an impact. All that has you so hooked to the pages, that you just have to continue reading to find out what happens next.
I hope you don’t mind it if I say: this is a classic Raine Miller. I mean it in the best way possible. You know that you will get great writing with awesome characters, lots of love and those twists you don’t see coming at all, but give the story the cherry on top.
Since her fifteenth birthday Winter Blackstone is in love with James Blakney, her brother Caleb's best friend. She's always been off limits to him. But on that faithful day, she realizes for the first time that James might see more in her than just a little girl.
As always life happens and some very unlucky circumstances change James forever. Now he's a hard working, tough lawyer who has no intentions whatsoever to give up his lifestyle. There is a darkness surrounding him that makes him believe that he's incapable of love. James thinks that the likes of him don't deserve someone pure and good-hearted like Winter Blackstone.
Winter Blackstone has been born and raised in a privileged family. She knows how lucky she is in comparison to others. This is why she wants to help the poor and less fortunate and studies social work at the University of Boston. All of her young life she's been watching James from afar. This is why she is more than surprised when he suddenly approaches her with a marriage proposal.
Winter knows that the marriage is one of convenience and not a real one. But can she be married to someone she loves who doesn't love her the same way? Things get far more complicated after they kiss for the first time. What are James' motives and what is he hiding from her? And furthermore, what truth is Winter hiding from James?
These two gave me all the feels! I loved them beyond words!!! There was such a deep connection between them that went far beyond sheer chemistry. I was cheering for them from page one hoping that they will finally act on their feelings for each other. I must confess that there were some major obstacles standing in their way. They literally went through heaven and hell together.
James was the perfect protective and possessive alpha hero. He's someone who needs to be in charge, always being in control of the situation. Never in his dreams did he imagine that sweet and compassionate Winter would naturally accept and embrace all the facettes of his personality. She was literally the light to his darkness. I loved how they complemented each other. They were the perfect match!
All in all, Filthy Lies totally surpassed my expectations! There was so much more depth to this story and the characters than meets the eye. While some parts of the book were very sad, others were so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes and made me swoon. I can say without a doubt that Filthy Lies is one of my most favorite reads of this year. Thank you dear Raine Miller for this exceptional reading experience. 5 stars
This is Caleb (from Filthy Rich) sister Winter Blackstone - I love getting a female Blackstone's story!
Winter is a beautiful, successful young woman who has been in love with her brother's best friend forever. James is a successful lawyer, and has had feelings for Winter for years, though neither of them have ever made that move.
Until now. I don't want to give too much away about the hows and whys that our lovelies make that move, but you will love it when they do.
Sweet, tender, sexy - though at times James seems a bit too unmanly for who he is (but this is probably just me). They are pretty swoony together.
There are some secondary characters that I adore, however there are some that needed a swift kick in the goolies!
I loved seeing more of Caleb and Brooke, and I can't wait to see what Ms Miller brings us next.
Also adding the Christmas story of Caleb and Brooke at the end was such a bonus! Thank you! You shoud make a book with all the Christmas stories, I love them and wait for every single one of them that time of the year.
Thank you for the great reading you just make me have with James and Winter. Looking forward for the next Blackstone Dynasty!!!
