21787823

Mystery Thriller BlurbDevastatingly handsome billionaire, Blake Law Barrington was Lana Blooms first and only love. From the moment they touched his power was overwhelming. Their arrangement quickly developed into a passionate romance that captivated her heart and took her on an incredible sexual journey she never wanted to end.
The future together looked bright until Lana made a terrible mistake. So, she did the only thing she could… she ran.

Away from her incredible life, away from the man of her dreams, but she should have known a man such as Blake Law Barrington was impossible to escape. Now, he’s back in her life and determined that she should taste the bitterness of his pain.

Shocked at how rough the sex has become and humiliated that she is actually participating so willingly in her punishment, she despairs if she will ever feel the warmth of his touch—the solidity of his trust again? And even if she can win his trust, loyalties are yet to be decided, and secrets to be revealed—secrets that will test them both to their limits.

Will Lana be able to tear down the walls that surround Blake’s heart, and break him free of the brutal power of immense wealth?

Can Blake hold on to Lana’s heart when she discovers the enormity of the dark secrets that inhabit the Barrington family?

Lana has always believed that love conquers all. She is about to test that belief…

Mystery Thriller My Review

Forty 2 DaysIt’s been a while since I read the first book in this series ‘Owned’ but when I started to read ‘Forty 2 Days’, this morning, I instantly remembered Lana, Blake and the irrepressible Billie.

Lana was running scared, in more ways than one, at the end of the ‘Owned’. This story finds Lana a changed woman, mature and a little less trusting. She has suffered loss and happiness in the intervening time. The only constant in her life is her love for Blake, which won’t go away.

Their reunion is a reflection of their first meeting. Blake remains as controlling as ever but beneath his obvious anger, is something more, something Lana needs to explore in the 42 days they have left of her contract.
The underlying darkness and menace of this story increases but who is in danger from the dark family secrets? Can Lana convince Blake her love is strong enough to stay the course this time?

The emotional connection between Blake and Lana deepens as he ‘punishes’ her, with sex as his weapon of choice. The sexual scenes are numerous and explicit but each adds a piece to the emotional journey the couple are travelling.

Hope is ‘alive and well’, as the book draws to its conclusion, until a series of devastating events rock Lana’s world and test her commitment to Blake. Unexpected twists and the presence of ancient secret rituals are seamlessly interwoven into this enthralling story. The ending is stormy but there are powerful rays of sunshine too. Will the light or the dark prevail?

‘Forty 2 Days is an addictive read, with an intriguing and often disturbing plot.


I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
