4 1/2 Stars
Going Down Easy by Carly Phillips is the first book in her new Billionaire Bad Boys series. This book is so different than your normal billionaire series and office romances which I think is one of the reasons I fell in love with it so much.
Kaden Barnes is sexy, witty geeks who, along with his two best friends from college, have turned their love of technology into a billion dollar company. They are on their way to releasing the next new thing in cell phone apps and once their app goes public they will be worth billions. The only thing in their way is their ex-partner and friend who is suing them for a stake in the company.
Kaden needs a personal assistant to help keep his office and life running smoothly while fighting the lawsuit and putting the finishing touches on the app. The only problem is Kaden’s moodiness and quirks have a tendency to run off every assistant they hire for him. That is until he meets his match both in and out of the office.
Lexie Parker’s life is a chaotic mess. Being the caregiver to her twin sister that is bipolar has taken a huge toll on her emotionally and financially. She has found herself putting her whole life on hold until such a time her sister can be on her own. When she lands a new job as personal assistant Kaden Barnes she is excited and wanting to put her best foot forward. She has heard the rumors about him being difficult to work with and running through PA’s on a weekly basis but what she wasn’t prepared for is the gorgeous man with troubling green eyes.
Kaden’s and Lexie’s office relationship is not your typical one. While he is her boss and is entitled to respect she will not let him intimidate her nor will she take any crap from him. Kaden loves how Lexie is unafraid to set him straight and the way she keep him organized and on track is something that makes him start seeing his beautiful new PA as something more than a co-worker. The closer these two get the more they have in common, most importantly mental illness.
Overall, this book was a quick and easy read. Full of emotion and heart, this story will make us all want to find our very own Kaden to come in and sweep us off our feet. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good romance story. I can’t wait for the next book in the series!
I received an eARC of this book compliments of the publisher in exchange for my honest review and opinion. All ratings and opinions stated are my own.
