He isn't Mr. Nice Guy…
Julian Dane thought he'd hit rock bottom — until he met a woman (isn't that what they all say?). He used her and broke her heart. Now he wants to turn things around but the damage he dealt stands in his way.
Kendall Parker's unique issues have made it hard to live a normal life. Very few people understand her and she trusts even less … but she believed in Julian once, and he only betrayed her.
Now Julian is back — a new man — and determined to win Kendall's heart. But this reformed bad boy just might find that Going in Deep is harder than it looks.
I just absolutely LOVE a story where the bad boy changes his ways for the girl he lost. The HIGHLY ANTICIPATED second-chance love story between Julian and Kendall was INCREDIBLE! Ever since I found out that Carly was giving these two characters their own story, I’ve been so freaking excited! And then when it showed up on my Kindle, I was OVER THE MOON and OH SO READY to get started. I knew it would be emotional. I knew it would be sexy. I knew it would be beautiful. It was all those things and more. I’ve become addicted to this series and these wonderful characters and it was bittersweet to dive into the final chapter of the Billionaire Bad Boys series.
“He’d missed her touch, her scent, the very essence of her being, and he never wanted to let her go.”
If you are familiar with the series, then you will definitely remember Julian Dane. You know him as a villain. In GOING IN DEEP, he is reformed and ready to get the woman he can’t get off of his mind, Kendall Parker, who you will also recall if you read the previous book. *Side Note* GOING IN DEEP is a standalone romance. The characters are interconnected but each book features a separate couple. Julian had no idea the type of demons Kendall Parker was battling when he took advantage of her and used her to get his way. But he is back and ready to make amends. Kendall had no idea the demons Julian Dane have been fighting, but how can she forgive the man who betrayed her. She loved him and he used her. How does one get past that? Julian starts to show Kendall a side of him that makes her weak in the knees. Slowly but surely, he is breaking down her walls, and bringing back the feelings that she has tried so very poorly to bury. When Julian has her heart once again, it’s not herself she has to convince, it’s her friends and family. They were there when Julian destroyed her heart, and they are not an easy to forgive group. With all of these forces driving them apart, how will they find a way to be together?
“I’m all in. No walking away, backing out, or doing something stupid to screw things up. I’m in too deep.”
This was just an all-around GREAT ROMANCE! I fell HARD for these characters. The engaging storyline kept me captivated with every turn of the page. I was just a goner from the very beginning. Carly Phillips knows the way to my heart, and she carved an easy path with GOING IN DEEP!
