Review: Going Down Fast by Carly Phillips


Going Down Fast by Carly Phillips Series: 

Billionaire Bad Boys #2 

Release Date: October 11th, 2016 

Genre: Contemporary Romance



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.


“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.”

My Rating:  (4 Lucas Stars)
Going Down Fast is a sexy second chance love story with the right amount of suspense and romance.

I usually love billionaires stories but this one have an interesting and unique angle to it because Lucas doesn't really act like a billionaire who usually wears designer suits and live at an expensive penthouse. Although he is rich and admittedly hot as sin with his hunky body and tattoo, he was once a shy nerdy kid who was always being bullied at school and had always feels like his parents love his brother a lot more than him.

I love the fact that Lucas has come a long way from his past and really cared and try helping the kids that are being bullied in his own way when billionaires usually are busy either being a playboy or partying around. It shows that he remembers his root and man, he got soul. 

I like that Lucas and Maxie actually had crush on each other way back when they were young and so when they fall in love in the present time it felt like a long time coming, like they actually have been in love for a long time although there were so many deceptions and missed opportunities. 

I am also really liking how strong Maxie is with all the terrible thing that happened to her. And I like that she insisted to have her independence the moment she had the opportunity because she craved for it so badly and she totally deserved if after all the things she went through.

(or in other words, Things that I love about the book)
1. There is this one scene I am quite fond of with where Maxie was visiting Lucas at his office and the moment he realize it is actually her who visits him, he practically sprinting towards her. It is so sweet and funny at the same time.
2. I don't why but I like how frustrated Lucas is when he is not allowed to meet Maxie at the hospital room right away just because he is not her husband. And I love the proposal at the hospital!
3. The engagement party is so perfect and I love it! I especially like the big ring that Lucas give to Maxie because he is super sweet when he says he might not act like he is a billionaire, but his wife is going to look like she's married to one. *Swoon*

(or in other words, Things that I dislike in the book)
I don't particularly have anything that I dislike in the book it's just that I'm a bit angry at the way Lucas parents treat him as compared to how they treat his brother. I mean every parents should love their children equally and I'm a little bit sad when reading Lucas' monologue where he promised one day when he have kids he is going to treat them equally. But yeah at the last scene his parents finally come around and supported him being together with Maxie so that makes me happy.

All in all, I think Going Down Fast  is an adorable quick read and I am recommending this to fellow romance lovers who love billionaires tropes with a second chance romance theme and won't mind having some suspense element to it.
