Going Down Hard by Carly Phillips
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Did anyone else find it impossible
to fall for Derek West? He was such an amazing character! Cassie Storm wasn't half bad either.
Cassie and Derek share history. Her family was rich and he was their gardener and maid's son. The people and the environment gave Derek a skewed opinion on all rich people. Not to mention a scandal that helped to destroy his family.
Once away at college on a scholarship, Derek buckled down and worked hard with his two best friends, Kaden and Lucas, to create an app that catapulted his career and made him into a successful billionaire. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interview the mysterious Derek brings Cassie back into his life. It doesn't take him long to realize that she's nothing like he imagine. He gets more than a glimpse of her innate goodness. But is what they share enough to conquer the deep scars created by the past?
The author did an amazing job of detailing the growth of the characters as individuals and the development of their relationship with each other. and those intimate scenes were definitely steamy! Although I would have liked more of a conclusion to Derek and Cassie's story, I did like how it alluded to what may take place in the next book with Kendall and Julian.
