BLOG TOUR REVIEW ~Going Down Easy by Carly Phillips~

Title: Going Down Easy

Author: Carly Phillips
Series: Billionaire Bad Boys #1
Release Date: June 19, 2016

My Rating: 5 Stars!!
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 the explosive 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.
This book. This book. This book. GAH! This book has given me a book hangover. I can't exactly explain why. Carly Phillips always writes an outstanding novel. I am pretty sure I've read every book and novella she's ever published, but this one is just a little deeper and a little more fascinating. It was real. It was emotional. And it was everything I didn't know I needed to read to get out of my book funk.

We've all read the alpha billionaire before, but Kade is different. He's hotter, he's sweeter, and down right delicious to read. Then you have Lexie, and I swear to high heavens she is a no BS kind of heroine that I LOVE to read. No push over here. Whatever Kade gives her she delivers right back in the ten-fold. And together their chemistry is more than explosive and their witty banter had me cry-laughing. Yet, to the antithesis of the eroticism and hilarity is a darker side to both of these characters. They both have families that failed to step up to the plate, and left Kade and Lexie holding a lot of baggage. However, true to both of their natures they made it work and fought the good fight. When Lexie comes to work for Kade they finally decide they both deserve to be selfish and give in to this powerful energy that's sparking between them.

But nothing ever goes as planned and what commences is a wicked web of "I really didn't see that coming" and some great big emotional slaps to the face. Going Down Easy is an epically perfect blend of romance and gritty real-life. No punches were pulled and the world of these three billionaire bad boys made me gasp in anticipation for its continuance. It will be pretty hard to top Kade though. He pretty damn well set the bar immeasurably high, but I can't wait to see Lucas and Derek try. At the end of the day this book is a MUST READ for me!

Happy Reading!
