Going Down Hard
by Carly Phillips
Genre: Contemporary Romance
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’s 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 seduce 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.
*All Billionaire Bad Boys Novels can be read as standalones.*
Lisa G’s Review: 4 Stars
This was the first story I have read by Carly Phillips – I loved the basis of the story!
How about the wealthy and the not-so wealthy? How about the maid / gardener’s son and the wealthy daughter? Derek lived on Cassie’s family’s property during his childhood – Cassie was his first crush, until he hears something that breaks his heart. Now, let’s skip to adulthood, guess what? Derek? Yeah he’s an extremely wealthy man, self – made billionaire – he’s made something of himself. Cassie is a trying to keep her family’s company afloat and needs Derek’s help. Will he help her? Will he sabotage her? Can Derek let go of the past and actually help Cassie? His biggest problem – he’s attracted to her, maybe he can just get her out of his system. That’s his plan until he actually gets to know Cassie and actually likes her.
What happens when two people fall in love from different social circles? Can their love make it? Is Derek beneath her ( not in a good way – either!)
I give Going Down Hard 4 Stars!

Tanya Rae’s rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
I loved Going Down Hard it is the 3rd book in the Billionaire Bad Boys Series. This book is Derek West and Cassie Storm’s story. The good news is that you can read each book in this series as a standalone. So, if you should start reading this series you won’t have to worry about a huge cliffhanger and you will get an HEA. Yet all the books are intertwined.
Derek grew up as the maid’s son and they were poor. Cassie grew up rich and the family that Derek’s parents worked for. Cassie has a moment where she really disappoints Derek. After the disappointment and embarrassed they both go off to college. Guess what? Derek is now a self-made billionaire and the last he saw of Cassie was that day of his disappointment. And, so the story goes from here. I won’t say more but, this is a second chance romance and I loved their story. I love that Derek raised his status from poor to RICH! And, that Cassie really is a nice girl not one of the mean girls from school. Oh, and did I mention the hotness factor between Cassie and Derek. I look forward to the more books in this series and for that matter books by Carly Phillips.
I give Going Down Hard 4.5 Stars and I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
