I am so unbelievably excited to be able to review yet another Carly Phillips’s book because she is one of my all time favorite authors. Going Down Fast was such an entertaining read and a wonderful addition to this series.

Nothing is sexier than a tech guy who has worked hard to shed his old geek identity who also happens to be a multi-billionaire. After being introduced to Kaden in the first book, I was so excited to meet Lucas who is just as appealing if not more because of his determination to strip himself of who he was when he was younger. Goodbye geek who found solace in video games to forget the bullying from his older brother, hello gorgeous hunk who has made someone of himself and now wants to go after the one person he has always wanted: Maxie, his best friend.
It’s not exactly easy as Maxie was married to his older brother, the same brother who tormented him for most of his life, before he died in a car accident. This piece of the story just added to the dynamic in this book because it was not your usual in-love-with-my-best-friend-for-my-whole-life storyline because Maxie was someone else’s before they finally gave into their feelings for one another and that someone was Lucas’s brother.

I really enjoyed the lead up to Lucas and Maxie finally getting together because Lucas’s brother caused so much trouble both when he was alive and even after his death. It was sweet to see them decide that it was finally their time to be together and to move on even if Lucas’s parents at first disapproved given their connection to one another because of Maxie’s marriage to Lucas’s brother. Their relationship was very emotional charged as they have years of feelings built up as well as Maxie’s journey to overcoming the loss of her child whom she was pregnant with in the prologue of the story.

The only issues I had with this story was again like with the first book in this series is that it was just too short for me. I wanted more! I would have loved to see this story stretched out a little more because certain elements in this book seemed to happened too fast and I would have loved to have them spaced out a little more. Other than that it was another satisfying read by Carly Phillips.
