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.
This book was so much fun to read. There was a solid mystery, sexual tension, and a strong friendship that could have been more, given the chance. Unfortunately, best friends since childhood, Lucas and Maxie, were not destined to be. He took off and grew up to be a partner in a very successful tech business. His life is so different than it was growing up. He's no longer the geeky computer guy. He's the tattooed, built, highly sought after, computer guy.
Maxie too has a different life than she imagined and is married to Lucas's brother, but her marriage is miserable and she finds herself just existing. Even when she is forced to turn to Lucas in an emergency, she can't see past their friendship and wouldn't want to come between the brothers. Her life changes dramatically in the span of a few weeks and she finds herself nearly homeless and totally reliant on Lucas and finds out her husband left her in a world of hurt and mired in lies.
Living together seemed like the logical option, but neither is prepared to deal with the impact it will have on their friendship. Lucas gives her space to heal, but he wants nothing more than to pick her up and take her to bed. He's trying to be a gentleman and Maxie wants him to take her already! They dance around each other and try to keep it platonic, but they both have the person they want within reach and if they can work through everything else happening around them, they might just make it work.
