Billionaire Bad Boys: Rich, Powerful and sexy as hell.
Lucas Monroe dropped out of college only to become a multi-billionaire and tech world God. He can have any woman he desires in his bed, but the only woman he's ever wanted is off limits and always has been. When Maxie Sullivan finds herself in dire straights, the only man she can turn to is the one she’s always secretly loved: her childhood best friend. Can they trust their hearts and make a future, or will their complicated pasts stand in the way? This bad boy is going down fast … And going down fast has never felt so right. The second stand-alone novel in the Billionaire Bad Boys series by New York Times Bestseller Carly Phillips.
One of the first romance books I ever picked up was one of Carly Phillips’- Hot Zone Series. There hasn’t been a story that Phillips has written over the years that I haven’t bought, rented from the local library, or borrowed. I love each and every single thing she has ever written. When I think of mainstream romance, I think of Carly Phillips. By far, she is my go to read for a hot, sexy, heartfelt romance. So, when the opportunity came to actually receive an ARC of Going Down Fast, I signed up immediately. Once again, Phillips lives up to her name and doesn’t disappoint with Going Down Fast.
In Going Down Fast, Phillips gives us the story of two childhood friends Lucas and Maxie and their chance at a second chance at love. Timing hasn’t ever been right for these two friends. Torturing themselves on acting on their feelings has always held these two friends back from their chance at forever. No matter what challenges Maxie has faced in her life, Lucas has always been there to help. When she winds up homeless, it’s no surprise that Lucas offers his room next door. But who knew living together would bring all those old feelings right to the surface?
Phillips does an excellent job writing this second chance love story with a touch of forbidden love and temptation thrown in. Her characters are perfect for each other. Their story is heartfelt, emotional, and riveting. Their chemistry is hot, deeply rooted and well written. Bottom line is, Carly Phillips is just that damn good. There is a reason why I’ve been reading her romance stories for years and will continue to buy until my last dollar runs dry. She never fails to give you something worth reading.
“Something smells incredible,” Lucas said, his voice growing closer. He entered the room, his big body filling up the kitchen despite its substantial size for a Manhattan apartment. She looked him over through lowered lashes. Though it was a workday, his wardrobe choice consisted of a pair of faded jeans and a black tee shirt with the Blink logo. He looked as delicious as her cookies, and she wanted to take a bite out of him. Her thoughts stopped her in her tracks, and she felt her face flush. But his gaze was focused on the tin of treats, and he didn’t notice her heated cheeks or her traitorous hormones. He walked over, picked up one hot, melty cookie, and devoured it in one bite. “Mmm,” he said, closing his eyes and swallowing with a satisfied groan. Her girlie parts tingled. Yep, that’s how she chose to think of them. If she got any more specific, she’d be blushing more and in deeper trouble than she already was. “Good?” she managed to ask. “Delicious. You’re a woman of many talents,” he said, the compliment warming her. “Thank you.” A smear of chocolate sat on his lower lips. Unable and unwilling to stop herself, she stepped closer, reached out, and ran her finger over his mouth, transferring the chocolate from him to her. She glanced at the gooey substance, hesitated a fraction of a second, and slid her finger into her mouth, licking off the remainder of the treat. Maybe it was her imagination, but she could swear she tasted Lucas on her tongue. She knew damn well she felt him low down in her sex. To hell with embarrassment, thanks to Lucas all she could do was feel. His heavy-lidded gaze locked with hers. “Maxie,” he said on a groan. Her breasts tingled at the low rumble in his voice. Like the other night, she was playing with fire. But unlike the other night, she was feeling stronger and more in control. Just the fact that she had a job interview emboldened her and gave her strength, more like the Maxie Sullivan she’d been before Keith manipulated and warped her mind. “Lucas.” She whispered his name. “Walk away,” he said, his body taut and vibrating with what she knew was the same desire shooting through her veins. “I can’t.” His gaze darkened. “Then run before we do something you’ll regret.”
