Review – Going Down Hard – Tawny Weber





Back Of The Book

Her satisfaction is guaranteed…

Sierra Donovan is flying high on her company’s rising success. Her bonus? Another sexy one-night-stand with cowboy Reece Carter–also known as the best sex she’s ever had.

But when sick blackmail photos start to show up, fiercely self-reliant Sierra suddenly finds herself needing a 24-hour bodyguard. Who better than cowboy turned security specialist Reece Carter?

Reece is tall, dark and dangerous…and he’s getting in Sierra’s take-charge way. But, oh god, can he make every single nerve ending on her body sizzle.

Sierra soon realizes that coming home to great sex each night has its benefits. That is, as long as her bodyguard can keep her alive long enough to enjoy it…



Sierra Donovan is almost floating as her elation at how far her business had come goes fever pitch. With a major deal in the pipeline that could make or literally break her company – she is also on tender hooks about everything just being right.

There is however a secret in Sierra's desk draw that only Bella her best friend and business partner knows about and she is scared that it will mar what they have both worked for, for so long.

Bella decides to take matters into her hands and hire private investigator/bodyguard Reece Carter, to not only protect Sierra, but to also make sure the company is not high-jacked by a blackmailer.

Reece and Sierra has an history and it’s not all good. From the moment Sierra and Reece meet up again – the feather starts flying. Reece is demanding and he lets Sierra knows it’s his way or no way from the first moment they met again. Sierra has to not only face some home truth about herself and about her feelings for Reece. While Sierra is getting her act together the danger is getting closer and Reece is determined to do everything and anything to protect the woman who has come to mean more than anything else to him.


“I wasn’t going anywhere. I was checking my messages,” she excused quickly. Interesting that she instantly honed in on his suspicion. “Is this how you handle security for your clients? By sneaking up and hounding them?”

“Hounding? C’mon, sweetheart. You and I both know I might sneak under your skin from time to time,” his appreciative gaze trailed a caress over that skin, just like his fingers itched to do, “but I’ve never hounded you. You’re just a little jumpy.”

With good reason, he was about to say. But her sneer stopped him. God, if he wasn’t already crazy about her, that look alone would have sent him over the edge. Pure sexual challenge, the curl of her glistening red lip made crave a taste of the soft flesh.

“I’m only edgy when some huge, irritating guy follows me around for no reason.”

“So you remember me as huge, huh?” he asked with a wicked grin, referencing aloud for the first time their little encounter the month before. Up against the wall, no holds barred sex that had kept him awake many a night craving.

That luscious lower lip fell, just a little, as she stared, speechless. Heat, fast and intense, flashed in her blue eyes. The look, brief though it was, assured him that nothing about their closet encounter had slipped her mind. And, thank god, the swift glance she slid to his zipper guaranteed those moans of pleasure he’d tortured himself with nightly had been the real deal.

“A huge pain in my butt, yes,” she said, as if she wasn’t looking at him like she’d like to take his zipper down with her teeth.

GOING DOWN HARD is the follow up book to COMING ON STRONG and Ms. Weber has pulled out all the stops with this one.

Not only are familiar faces present and accounted for, but she has enhanced on a highly charged attraction between Reece and Sierra. The dialogue is quick, the pace fast and the new support cast introduced was of the love them or hate them variety.

GOING DOWN HARD is a good follow up book and a must read for lovers of Ms. Weber’s work.

Reads Brandy’s take on Going Down Hard

She is definately on the fence about this book – I agree with her though – i will be trying Ms. Weber books again.

I liked how Sierra and Reece both thought that they were totally wrong for each other but just couldn't stop thinking about the other. I liked that they could go at each other verbally and knew that they weren't being mean but that it was verbal foreplay. I LOVE verbal foreplay since that is hubby and me.

Hey EH. I was on the fence. I liked it but a few things bugged me.

I've been waiting for your review to pop up. I think we do feel the same.
