Review – Going Down Fast by Carly Phillips



Carly Phillips is back with the next story in her Billionaire Bad Boys series. And what an amazing second chance love story it is! So full of twists and turns and an unrequited romance that has faced lies, jealousy and heartbreaking loss. Lucas and Maxie’s love story is as sigh worthy as it is frustrating… sexy and sinful.

Lucas Monroe and Maxie Sullivan have known each other for years. Always friends. JUST friends… and both always wanted more but were too afraid to reach for more. She knew that she could always depend on Lucas. He was always her strength – her place of safety. Lucas had his own demons. He was a skinny nerd who was never good enough for his parents no matter how brilliant he was. He could never measure up to his brother, Keith – the golden child, the sports hero… the bully who did everything possible to make Lucas miserable. Even going so far as to use lies to marry the girl that Lucas has always loved.

The years and marriage are not kind to Maxie. A cheating drunk of a husband. An unbearable loss. Then death of the marriage in more ways than one. With no money and no place to go, Maxie turns to the one man that she has always depended on, the man she has always loved – the brother that has always been off limits. But things have changed. She has changed, but has Lucas? Is he still the playboy that she knows him to be? Lucas has vowed to always be by Maxie’s side. To keep her safe and protected. But it’s time to face the truth – he loves Maxie and he wants her. He’s no longer the skinny nerd being bullied by his brother and his friends. What Lucas Monroe wants, he gets. And Lucas wants Maxie.

A romance built on long time frendship is so much fun to watch blossom. These two have loved each other since they were teenagers but their timing never seemed right. Petty jealousies from outside sources and danger from even shadier dealings all work together to keep these two apart. But oh, the moment that Lucas and Maxie give in – amazing! They have so many insecurities to face, so many obstacles from their past to overcome but the steam coming from these two can run a locomotive! Lucas is so alpha, so dynamic and protective. It doesn’t hurt that he has a dirty mouth and knows how to use it! Maxie is stronger than she ever gave herself credit for. I loved her spunk, her guts and tireless determination. I couldn’t help but root for them to have it all!

Beautifully twisted and amazingly well done! A great second chance love story for a tech geek turned billionaire bad boy and his fantastic damsel in distress. Fantastic, Carly! Absolutely wonderful!

One more billionaire bad boy to go.
