I love a good second chance love story and Carly Phillips never disappoints, so when the two are combined I knew I had to read it! Going Down Fast is the second book in the Billionaire Bad Boys series, but each book is a standalone story and you do not need to read these in order to understand anything. This book was everything I had been hoping for, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Lucas Monroe and Maxie Sullivan were childhood best friends that were also in love with each other. But Maxie has always been off limits to Lucas and while he was off at college and then becoming wildly successful in the tech world, Maxie moved on with her life. But now Maxie finds herself desperate for help, knowing that the only one she can turn to is Lucas. With their pasts being as complicated as they are though, do they possibly stand a chance of having a future together?
I loved these two! Lucas was fantastic and Maxie was easy to like. Lucas had everything he could ever want, yet he had always wanted Maxie. I loved how he never gave up, yet he didn't push her into anything she couldn't handle. Maxie had been through a lot, and Lucas was patient with her. Maxie grew and became stronger because of Lucas, and I really felt like these two were at their best together. The chemistry between them was beyond hot, and I couldn't get enough of them together.
Overall, I really loved this book and I definitely plan to read more in this series. This was my first in this particular series from Carly Phillips, but I have really enjoyed everything I have read from her over the years. Carly has a way with words, and she has never disappointed me with her stories. Carly Phillips continues to write sexy and captivating stories that just seem to get better with each new book. If you are a fan of contemporary romance, Carly Phillips is one author you shouldn't miss! I highly recommend Going Down Fast, and I look forward to more from Carly Phillips in the future.
