Billionaire Bad Boys: Rich, Powerful and sexy as hell. Derek West rose from poverty to take the tech world by storm. He’s sexy, confident and gets any woman he wants. And who he wants is Cassie Storm, the rich girl he’s never been good enough for. She’s desperate to save her family company and there’s only one man who can help. But Derek isn’t interested in helping. He wants to possess both the company and the woman he’s never been able to forget. His plan? To screw her out of his head. Except once he’s had a taste of Cassie, he doesn’t want to let her go. Her family remembers where he came from, and they won’t allow it. When the truth about their pasts comes to light, though, it may be Cassie who’s going down hard.

◄◄ My Thoughts ►►

Carly Phillips does it again! I love her sexy heroes and strong female characters! Going Down Hard is steamy, sweet, and emotional. Derek and Cassie were such a great couple and it was great to explore their relationship evolution.

Here’s what I absolutely loved: Cassie was the standout for me. She’s strong, driven, compassionate, and tenacious. Although her family sucks, she’s an amazing woman. I enjoy getting to experience characters who don’t fit into the traditional models we expect, and Cassie is definitely that type of character.

I also really enjoyed Derek’s drive and family dynamic. His parent’s influence in his life and well as the role his mother current plays was a great characteristic.

Overall, this book features a great story with excellent character development, interesting family dynamics, and fantastic main characters. The storyline and plot were both well-done. Although part of a series, Going Down Hard can definitely be read as a standalone. The setup for the next book in series is completely fascinating. I’m on pins and needles waiting for Julian and Kendall’s story!

I rate itfour-stars
