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.
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.
His gaze darkened. “Then run before we do something you’ll regret.”
Carly Phillips gave me a billionaire that I loved from the start.
Friends to lovers stories are my favorite and the twist Ms. Phillips has given in Going Down Fast kept the pages turning for me.
Lucas was the geek growing up. Always shadowed by his popular brother. Geek boy drops out of college and becomes a tech god. The man had made it so he can have anything he wants. But the one he wants the most is the one he can’t have and shouldn’t want. Lucas is a billionaire with a big heart, very sweeting, caring and OMG sexy.
Maxie has always loved Lucas but twisted situations lead her to the arms of another. The brother of man she truly loved. Manipulation and lies have left her with nothing but a hot mess, no job or money and without a place to live. Maxie is a damn good woman who has been put through the ringer.
Emotional, sexy and amazing. Chemistry, slow passion and a bit of suspense thrown in just to keep you guessing. Maxie and Lucas are fabulous together. Well written, complex and extremely likable. A storyline that kept the reader engaged while making you feel right along with Maxie and Lucas. A short read that keeps you going from beginning to end.
