Billionaire Bad Boys: Rich, Powerful and Sexy as hell.
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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3.75 stars-second chances 3.75 stars--GOING IN DEEP is the fourth installment in Carly Phillips’ contemporary, adult BILLIONAIRE BAD BOYS erotic, romance series focusing on a trio of close knit friends-Derek West, Kaden Barnes and Lucas Monroe, and former business partner Julian Dane-a spin off from her DARE TO LOVE SERIES. This is IT businessman Julian Dane, and Kendall Parker’s story line. GOING IN DEEP can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary. Told from dual third person perspectives (Kendall and Julian) GOING IN DEEP is a second chance romance for freelance cyber security specialist Julian Dare, and the woman he loved Kendall Parker. A few year earlier, strung out and addicted, Julian Dare sued his former best friend Kaden Barnes’ and owners of the computer software company BLINK for his share of the profits but in the meantime forged a relationship with Kaden’s future sister in law to get back at the man he was hoping to destroy. Enter Kendall Parker, the woman Julian hopes to rekindle a relationship while he struggles to make amends to everyone he hurt in the past. GOING IN DEEP reveals some of the history as to why Julian Dane fell into the world of alcohol and drugs, as well as the outstanding guilt he carries throughout his life. Not only is Julian responsible for destroying the relationship between himself and his best friend but our hero must ensure the well being of someone else in his life. Kendall Parker struggles with bi-polar disorder, and throughout the process of coming to terms with her disease, Kendall finds herself pulled back into the world of the man she once loved-a man who no longer resembles the cold, calculating lover from her past. The relationship between Kendall and Julian is one of second chances; a rekindling romance between two people destroyed by one man’s battle with too many demons and the guilt and shame of betrayal and loss. Kendall, a volunteer at a local dog shelter, not only suffers with a psychological disorder but must battle for her independence from a family who wish to protect the people that they love. The $ex scenes are intimate and seductive without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. The secondary and supporting characters include Kaden and Lexie (Going Down Easy); Julian’s younger sister Alyssa, as well as his new house guest Alex, a young woman who finds herself abandoned on so many different levels. We are also reunited with several of the previous story line couples, if only, by way of mention or in passing. The world building looks at forgiveness and penance; second chances and the reawakening a love damaged by betrayal and mistrust. I did have a couple of concerns with some of the current story line content: the lack of any major confrontation between Julian and the partners at BLINK -although many of the issues had previously been revealed throughout the series I think the overall situation /resolution required more story line conflict to be believable (under the circumstances) or at the very least a more plausible, more emotional outcome; and Alex’s brother Billy’s status was left hanging without any real resolution considering he was a possible threat to Julian’s welfare and Alex’s safety. The premise is revealing; the characters are spirited and dynamic; the romance is captivating and passionate. GOING IN DEEP looks at the destructive nature of addiction, and the resulting fall out when the pain is too deep.
