Going Down Easy (Billionaire Bad Boys Book 1) by Carly Phillips
Date of Publication: July 19, 2016
Billionaire Bad Boys: Rich, Powerful and sexy as hell.
Billionaire Kaden Barnes has a reputation for being difficult and always getting his way.
Enigmatic and exacting, he's unable to keep an assistant for long. Enter his newest hire, Lexie Parker. She's no-nonsense, efficient and all business… She's also hot as sin and soon starring in Kaden's dirtiest fantasies.
As their passion for each other reaches a boiling point, neither can control theexplosive outcome when they finally give in to their desires. He may think he's calling the shots, but for this bad boy, going down easy has never felt so good.
Another great one from the consistently wonderful Carly Phillips! Kade and Lexie are strong characters with their own personal baggage, but who are a perfect match - they play off each other very well without giving up who they are. While I was happy to see some imperfect subject matter dealt with (as is fairly unusual in a romance novel), I felt the amount of time spent dealing with the mental illness aspect from multiple angles took away from the romance a little. Maybe that's what Ms. Phillips wanted to portray since that is what reality is like, but I like my romance novels to be a little more escapism than that. With that being said, I still enjoyed the book, as I've come to expect from Carly Phillips - and cannot wait to see what she and the rest of the Billionaire Bad Boys have in store for us!
Going Down Easy: 3.5/5 stars
