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.”

5 Stars!

Carly Phillips is an amazing author. She is one of my top favorites in the romance world. Her books always promise a sexy time with twists, turns, and kindle melting steam. Billionaire Bad Boys is her newest series. This is the second standalone where we get the sweet, smart, and sexy Lucas' story.

Going Down Fast was a fast ready full of lust, love promises, and happy endings. This book was an amazing story with a flowing storyline and a plot that just grabs hold of you. I devoured this book, not coming up for air until their story was over. Meeting Lucas and Maxie was a captivating experience that won't soon be forgotten.

Complicated.... Welcome to their world.

Childhood best friends turned in law's harboring feelings for each other. Two souls bound by friendship and family that is destined for that forever kind of love. Maxie and Lucas are here to tell their story. Full of ups, downs and everything in between, find out why falling in love is the best thing you could ever do even if the fall is scary. Go on an emotional roller coaster with these two as they find themselves... going down fast.  

 Lucas isn't your average hero... and certainly not the extreme over the top alpha boyfriends we have met. Oh no, he is so much more than that in the best kinds of ways. Lucas is smart, sweet, reliable, witty, fun, brilliant, and alpha in his own way. He made me swoon hard and like the title... he had me going down hard and fast.

Carly Phillips never disappoints me in her writing and once again, she has given me a top book of this year and made me fall in love with romance all over again.

I highly recommend this book.

This is Lucas and Maxie’s story. What is the one you want above all others is the only one you can’t have. Maxie and Lucas have always loved each other. When he goes away to college he comes home to find her married. Years later Maxie needs him. He will do anything for a chance with the woman he has always loved. But will the past get in the way of these two getting together? Can they overcome the hurt of the past to have a future together?

I loved these characters and also the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read.
