RockStar PR Spotlight + Review: Going Down Hard by Carly Phillips

Going Down Hard
Billionaire Bad Boys #3

A stand-alone Billionaire Bad Boys novel.

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 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 screw 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.

My Thoughts:
This one you can definitely read as a standalone. Yes, Julian does pop again, but extremely minor. Basically, Cassie and Derek knew each when they were younger. Cassie said something extremely stupid due to peer pressure and she hurt Derek bad. Kind of cruel. Now we jump ahead to present day and Cassie is trying to prove to her father that she's the perfect person to run the company. Instead he puts her slacker brother in charge. However, Cassie is bound to prove to her father that she's the right person and cinch an interview with Derek West. 

Derek planned to do one thing, but he needs to get Cassie out of his system, and why not kill two birds with one stone. As the story progress the dynamics of Cassie and Derek's relationship change, and starts to realize that he might need her in his life. 

Basically, a quick story. Trouble starts to brew towards the end and quickly clears up. Overall, a pretty good read. I liked what Derek's mom says to Cassie, "Honey, we aren't responsible for the sins of others." I think that's pretty much the message in the story. Both Cassie and Derek have to get pass the past in order to move on.
