22423865Mystery Thriller Blurb

In Forty 2 Days we cheered as we learned of Lana’s opportunity for a second chance to put things right with our wounded hero, Blake. We read with joy at the news of baby Sorab’s birth, and with tension in our bodies as the spirited Lana fought and finally overcame the might of Blake’s powerful family to win the heart of the man she adored.

But Lana still needs answers to many burning questions?
The secrets are many and tangled? Will she get the answers she seeks?

Blake finally lays it on the line to Victoria, and declares his true love for Lana, but will that be the end of the matter?

Then there is the re-appearance of Marcus.

Can Lana keep her resolve and overcome all obstacles to claim her man forever?

AmazonMystery Thriller My Review

Besotted (The Billionaire Banker, #3)Book 2, ’42 Days’, ended with a terrible revelation from Blake. ‘Besotted’ begins with Blake’s point of view at a later point in time. This steamy chapter sets the scene for what is to follow. Lana and Blake’s relationship becomes even darker, even though their love remains strong.

Blake continues his autocratic treatment of Lana. He wants to protect her at all costs, which given the depraved world they inhabit is understandable. His unrelenting suppression of her free will is in itself a disturbing development. Despite her courage and spirit, Lana is very much the bird in the gilded cage, in this part of the story. This story explores Blake’s sexual domination of Lana and the sexual scenes are appropriately explicit to demonstrate this vividly. Lana subjugates her will in the name of love but it makes the reader wonder if she will survive in her ivory tower.

‘Besotted’ is characterised by slower pacing and simpler plot than the previous two books in the series. The menace from Blake’s peers and ex lover increases, it’s like watching the seven deadly sins unfold. Lana’s dealings with Blake’s ex lover and his brother, allow her strength of character to shine through despite her fear.
The ending is suitably glamorous and romantic but Blake and Lana’s story is not finished.

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