Plot Summary:

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.

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

All Billionaire Bad Boys Novels stand alone!

My thoughts:

I'm generally not a fan of third person narratives (I prefer first person, especially dual POV's from the male and female leads), but Carly Phillips is one of the few authors that can suck me in despite that. I was immediately drawn to Julian and Kendall - they were both so vulnerable in a very real way. The book dealt so well with the issues of mental health issues and the respect due to those dealing and coping with it, as well as addiction. It was a beautiful story of forgiveness - not only the willingness and ability to forgive others, but also the need to forgive yourself. Plus it had Carly's signature steam. I'm definitely going to go back and read the first 3 books in the series, especially since we actually meet Julian and Kendall in a previous volume AND the couples featured in them make an appearance in Going In Deep. This is a perfect example as to why Carly Phillips is one of my "must read authors" and has been for a while!
