Date of Publication: May 9, 2017
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.

What an amazing story of second chances at love and life. This truly was a story about forgiveness and redemption.
Going In Deep is the final book in Carly Phillips Billionaire Bad Boy series and I thought it ended this amazing series perfectly.
I have to be honest when I say I was really looking forward to reading Julian and Kendall’s story, even when they were the villains of the series. I was so hoping Carly would give them their HEA and possibly redeem these two. And she did more than just redeem them, she made me fall in love with both their characters!! I loved how honest this story felt when it came to these characters living with Addiction and Mental Health Issues. She gave us a look into what it is like for people who struggle on a daily basis with these conditions.
This story will suck you in and when you get to the end you won’t want it to end. The writing is seamless and the flow of the story was spot on. I loved the pace she took this story and these characters. Julian had earn Kendall’s trust back and I was glad Carly didn’t just brush over that and actually made him work at it.
I absolutely loved the theme of this story, in that everyone deserves a second chance and that these conditions are a struggle everyday for those who live with them, but with the right support around you, you can make it and live a happy and healthy life.
Going In Deep tells the story of Kendall (Lexi’s twin sister) and Julian (ex friend of Kade). We meet both of these characters in book 1 Going Down Easy. You don’t have to read that book first, but I would highly recommend it. It will make Going In Deep more understandable. You get to know what Kendall and Julian were like before this story. In this book though, we have Julian who has turned his life completely around and is trying to make amends. The first person he needs to do that with is Kendall. Kendall suffers from Bipolar Depression and has struggled with it in the past, but now she is on the right medication and is seeing a therapist and has learned to live a happier life. That is until Julian steps back into her life. Kendall has some serious trust issues when it comes to Julian, so she isn’t overly happy to see him again. Will Julian be able to win Kendall over again?? Can she learn to forgive and trust Julian again?? Will these two finally have their HEA they so deserve?? Read this book to find out.
Going In Deep is a standalone novel told from Dual POV in the third person. The author does a wonderful job filling in the blanks for those readers that haven’t read Book 1, but again I would recommend reading Going Down Easy first. In truth you will want to read this whole series….it is WONDERFUL!!!! I also enjoyed seeing some of the past characters from this series in this book, but I loved that this story truly focused on Kendall and Julian. I am truly sad to see this series come to an end. I just know I will have to read it again in the future.
