4 KINK Review
Lucas Monroe is the textbook definition of a perfect gentlemen. I am in love with the man who is there when you need him. He is the one you call and the one who is dependable. Maxie Sullivan married the wrong man. For years, Lucas has been living with guilt and a sense of loss because his heart wants what he can’t have.
Lucas has been forbidden to confess his undying devotion to Maxie. Instead, he chooses to distance himself from Maxie but remain close enough to be available when needed. Thank goodness he has the support of his best friends and business partners to convince him to follow his heart. He has been unhappy and maybe a little resentful for years. In those years, he has channel his frustrations into making his company successful and women.
While Lucas, Maxie and his parents have suffered a grievous loss, it’s one that has mark their lives with the ability to love again and move on. It was crushing to see how much Lucas suffered at the hands of dubious acts committed by his brother and supported by his parents.
Opportunity makes it possible to profess their love to each other and they take bold steps to be together despite their family disapproving. However, I did expect more action from Lucas when trouble came knocking on Maxie’s door because of her husband’s betrayal. A powerful billionaire with the contacts and money could have done a lot more and quickly.
This series is swoon-worthy, sexy and thoughtful. The billionaire men are vulnerable and smoldering hot while being alphalicious protective. Going Down Hard is the perfect mix of passion and erotic romance.
“Something smells incredible,” Lucas said, his voice growing closer.
He entered the room, his big body filling up the kitchen despite its substantial size for a Manhattan apartment. She looked him over through lowered lashes. Though it was a workday, his wardrobe choice consisted of a pair of faded jeans and a black tee shirt with the Blink logo. He looked as delicious as her cookies, and she wanted to take a bite out of him.
Her thoughts stopped her in her tracks, and she felt her face flush. But his gaze was focused on the tin of treats, and he didn’t notice her heated cheeks or her traitorous hormones. He walked over, picked up one hot, melty cookie, and devoured it in one bite.
“Mmm,” he said, closing his eyes and swallowing with a satisfied groan.
Her girlie parts tingled. Yep, that’s how she chose to think of them. If she got any more specific, she’d be blushing more and in deeper trouble than she already was.
“Good?” she managed to ask.
“Delicious. You’re a woman of many talents,” he said, the compliment warming her.
A smear of chocolate sat on his lower lips. Unable and unwilling to stop herself, she stepped closer, reached out, and ran her finger over his mouth, transferring the chocolate from him to her.
She glanced at the gooey substance, hesitated a fraction of a second, and slid her finger into her mouth, licking off the remainder of the treat. Maybe it was her imagination, but she could swear she tasted Lucas on her tongue. She knew damn well she felt him low down in her sex. To hell with embarrassment, thanks to Lucas all she could do was feel.
His heavy-lidded gaze locked with hers. “Maxie,” he said on a groan.
Her breasts tingled at the low rumble in his voice. Like the other night, she was playing with fire. But unlike the other night, she was feeling stronger and more in control. Just the fact that she had a job interview emboldened her and gave her strength, more like the Maxie Sullivan she’d been before Keith manipulated and warped her mind.
“Lucas.” She whispered his name.
“Walk away,” he said, his body taut and vibrating with what she knew was the same desire shooting through her veins.
His gaze darkened. “Then run before we do something you’ll regret.”
