Blurb: Billionaire Bad Boys: Rich, Powerful and sexy as hell.
Lucas Monroe dropped out of college only to become a multi-billionaire and tech world God. He can have any woman he desires in his bed, but the only woman he’s ever wanted is off limits and always has been. When Maxie Sullivan finds herself in dire straits, the only man she can turn to is the one she’s always secretly loved: her childhood best friend. Can they trust their hearts and make a future, or will their complicated pasts stand in the way?
This bad boy is going down fast …
And going down fast has never felt so right.
Review: What a wonderful follow up to the DARE series, filled with hot, sexy men and their tough but sweet women. Always a treat to read one of Carly’s books, and I love the way she writes the intimate scenes in this one.
Keith Monroe was a total jerk. He’d trapped Maxie Sullivan in a destructive relationship all because he was jealous of his brother Lucas. Growing up, their parents had always idolized Keith. Whenever Lucas complained or went to them for help, they didn’t believe him. Keith had always taken everything Lucas had wanted–like girlfriends or their parent’s approbation –simply because he could. Now he’s gone, and Lucas is realizing that cutting Maxie out of his life because of Keith had not only hurt her, it had allowed Keith to really mess with her. It was going to take a while before Maxie would feel safe again.
Marie’s marriage had turned into a gilded prison. Keith had been verbally abusive as well as incredibly manipulative, and slowly over time she’d been more and more isolated from friends and family. After his death, she’d found out that not only had he been a horrible person, he’d also left her with a financial nightmare–eviction from their home and no cash. Apparently he’d also been embezzling from the firm they worked for so she’d lost her job.
With Lucas on her side, things are moving in a great direction until a shadow from the past threatens the future they could finally have.
Awesome read from a great author. Thanks!
