Billionaire Bad Boys: Rich, Powerful and Sexy as hell.
He isn’t Mr. Nice Guy…

Julian Dane thought he’d hit rock bottom — until he met a woman (isn’t that what they all say?). He used her and broke her heart. Now he wants to turn things around but the damage he dealt stands in his way.

Kendall Parker’s unique issues have made it hard to live a normal life. Very few people understand her and she trusts even less … but she believed in Julian once, and he only betrayed her.
Now Julian is back — a new man — and determined to win Kendall’s heart. But this reformed bad boy just might find that Going in Deep is harder than it looks
Sighhhhh... That was the swoon heard round the world. I'm going to admit, I didn't think Julian could be redeemed after Going Down Easy. How he used Kendall, it just broke my heart into a zillion pieces, BUT if ever there was a man to redeem himself, it was Julian in this book. Ironically enough, the self-worth that he helped steal from Kendall by unknowingly using her mental illness against her, is returned in triplicate in this book.

Julian and Kendall have a lot of ground to cover in this book, and while they could have easily gotten lost in the angst and hurt of the past, they spend more time developing their present, and finding out how they forget and move on from the past rather than reliving it. Both Julian and Kendall bring out the strength in one another. Putting the past to rest, and finding their happy. Their forever.

Honestly, I almost lost a lot of respect for Kade and Lexie. ALMOST. They were definitely saved, but they toed the line by almost hurting Kendall too much. I get the need for their action though. And I think it actually pushed Julian and Kendall even further to find who they really are and want to be. It's not easy dealing with their collective pasts, but they make it worth every anger-filled and hurt-filled moment to get to those lust, love, fun, and amazing-filled moments that we get to see between Julian and Kendall in GOING IN DEEP. Definite must-read!

Happy Reading!
