This was a cute story about some not so perfect characters and their quest for loving each other. Carly puts together the right mix of steamy romance and just enough trials the characters have to go through in order to find love. Great summer read!!

I was disappointed on how nasty the book was. To explicit , I’ve read some of her older books an enjoyed the stories, funny but a good light-hearted read, it was what I expected for this book. Don’t see me reading any more of her newer books :(

Found this to be an enjoyable read! Loved the story line and could not put this book down. The characters are strong and determined but also have vulnerabilities. They have obstacles to overcome but true love will win in the end. Terrific book!

Going Down Easy is the first installment of the Billionaire Bay Boys Series. They do not have to be read in order because each book is a stand alone issue. The book contains good characters who face real life issues, it's well written with a developed plot and a HEA. This book is the tale of Lexi Parker and Kaden Barnes. Kaden is a Techno Geek, who with the help of his 2 best friends developed and app called Blink. Kaden has ADHD, anxiety and other quirks. Because of these issues he was left by his mother and every woman he has known since. He is very demanding and that has cost him several PA's. Unbeknownst to him his partners and best friends have hired him a new PA, Lexie Parker, they have warned her not to let him intimidate her. This she can do because she has an identical twin with mental issues that she became the caretaker of and basically gave up everything for. With the first meet and greet she proves to Kaden that she will not stand for his arrogant ways and she, as well, can be just as bossy. She takes his issues in stride and he is impressed. They both find themselves attracted to one another but hold a part of themselves back. Kaden thinks she will betray him and leave him just like all the others and Lexi thinks because of her twin, the day will come when she will have to walk away and give up another part of herself. The attraction grows and turns into love but an adversary wants part of the company and uses Lexi's twin to interfere. Can each find the strength to trust and give up something in order to go down the road of HEA?

There was a nice storyline with terrific suspense. I like that this author gave a realistic amount of depth to each character and found thus to be well written.

This was a hot, sexy, sweet, emotional romance about two people who are perfect for each other and fill the voids left by other people in their lives. Emotional family issues and the bonds of friends and family that keep us strong during the lowest points of life. Kaden Barnes is a extremely hot alpha male with very specific needs and wants out of a PA and a strong aversion to trusting women. (his past is so heart breaking) Lexie Parker is a sexy, sweet woman with a caring and giving nature that has lost her chosen profession and is desperate for a job. Her sister is her first priority and has been for many years (how she lost her job) both her mother and sister are in need of care and treatment. All the while you are wondering if they can have a real relationship with her family and his current business issues and on going needs. Overall it was a very interesting, entertaining and enjoyable adventure and I look forward to reading more from this group.

This could have been much better. The storyline is decent, but the writing itself is subpar and the story lacks depth and nuance.

Hotness Rating 3 out of 5 Carly Phillips does it again! I mean really is there anything this lady can't write about it and make it a fantastic read? The characters in this book not only had the boss vs. employee issue, the new relationship exploration, but also mental illness in a couple different forms to wreak havoc. Kudos to Ms. Phillips for allowing the natural drama in these situations to present themselves without ramping it up and making it so angsty it's hard to read. That is probably my biggest annoyance in any book. I hate forced and unnecessary drama. Carly Phillips navigates through these potential pitfalls like the professional she is. Kaden Barnes was a troubled, yet sexy and strong character. His anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorders didn't make him weak in the slightest. Actually, I admired his strength and bravery through just about everything life threw at him. He was a loyal friend and a fantastic lover to Lexie. The sparks between this couple sizzled, but the easy going relationship and mutual respect definitely took a front seat to everything else. They just kind of found one another and slipped right into a comfortable routine. Lexie Parker was amazing! The poor woman spent her whole life thrown into a caretaker role one way or another. Her mother suffered from depression and then her twin sister was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Since her father catered to their mother Lexie was left as her sister's keeper. This role definitely affected her personal and professional life, but Lexie never held it over her sister's head. At first when she met Kaden my fear was that Lexie shouldn't be thrown into another role as someone's keeper, but I feel like Ms. Phillips did a good job at proving Kaden's ability to care for himself. Yes, he had a certain way he wanted things and he had staff take care of this, but he had the money to provide this luxury so I don't blame him. All in all this book was a great start to the Billionaire Bad Boys series. I'm looking forward to reading more about Kaden's partners and learning of their stories.

I loved this book!!! I am such a huge fan of Carly Phillips the only bad thing was I have been so busy at work I wasn't able to read as much as I would normally have. I loved the characters in this story and their devotion to the friends and family. The story moved at a fast pace and wasn't already pretty but relationships never are. This story can be read as a stand alone book and has a great HEA!!! There is also an epilogue which I always love and appreciate. Get this book you won't be disappointed. Carly Phillips please keep the great stories coming!!!
