ARC for review 

When Lana Bloom learns the devastating news that her mother is dying, she is faced with a terrible dilemma. The one thing that can save her is the one thing she does not have. For young and Innocent Lana, The unthinkable is her only choice. 

When she walks through the door of that exclusive restaurant she has no idea of the seismic shift her life is about to take, for the highest bidder will not be the rich man she has accompanied. 

Fate drops her at the feet of the deeply mysterious and dazzlingly gorgeous American banker, Blake Law Barrington. Throbbing with raw masculinity and arrogance, this is a man who owns all that he pursues. 

And now he wants her. 

Lana cannot deny she is both intrigued and intoxicated by the world Blake inhabits and the smouldering passion he stirs in her body, but she is also fearful for this man is addictive and right now she is very vulnerable. She knows she should focus only on the arrangement, but how can she? 

When he has opened a door that cannot be closed

The way I see it 

The Billionaire Banker was a fun and intriguing read. This one is a real page turner, its 50 shades meets Pretty Woman meet Bridgette Jones Diary it was truly fun. Its rare when a book plays out like a movie but Ms. Le Carre does a fine job of making it happen. This was a real page turner, warning it will consume your afternoon the writing flow was seamless and engaging so for a delightful evening of fun I highly recommend this book.

T-ime, is limited Lana must do something soon or she will lose the thing she loves most.
H-elp, Lana doesn’t know who to turn to she is lost and has nothing to bargain.
E-nsnare, a cruel and greedy man will trap her and offer her a way out.

B-lake, an unsuspecting beautiful woman crosses his path he will pursue her using the power he knows is at his disposal.
I-nnocent, trapped like a mouse Lana does not know the world she is about to collide with.
L-ove, there isn’t anything that Lana would not do to save her mother.
L-ove, Lana will sacrifice herself to ensure the well being of those she cares for.
I-llusion, dressed in pretty things wont change the way she feels about what she is about to do, Lana will walk down a dark alley.
O-wned, like a lamb she has no choice everything is written clearly before her.
N-aive, feelings she never knew existed she knows she cannot pursue.
A-ir, it seems Lana has gotten passed his carefully calculated walls he needs her as much as she needs him.
I-mportant, an appointment is met and Blake seems to be taken by Lana he knows not when he will tire of her.
R-eassured, Lana’s brother and her friends know what she is embarking in and understand the circumstances behind her decision.
E-vade, an evening meant to introduce Lana into Blake’s world becomes too complicated and he must retract.

B-illionaire, his family and his legacy all stand for one thing... to continue their riches and ensure the family money is safe.
A-lone, Blake has never known anyone like Lana her presence warms him in a way that is alien to him.
N-eglect, after a close call all Blake can do is keep Lana close to him. His feelings unknown to all.
K-in, Blake shares his feelings with his brother and in a brash moment may lose everything.
E-clipsed, Victoria the one who was promised to Blake will act without his consent. Getting rid of Lana will be her main goal.
R-esigned, not knowing what to do about her current situation all she knows is to protect and Lana will risk everything to care for those she loves.

Holy MOTHER EFFIN H! Yep you GUESSED it! It’s happened again, the dreaded CLIFFHANGER! Gah! Its not CRAZY cliffy but for me it was like What.The.Hell. REALLY?!! OMG yea that WAS the Last page. Insert overly dramatic sigh____ I will certainly be looking forward to the rest of this series I’m an auto-FAN!!

My Wish
Lana-I want her to grow an awesome pair like be all protective and stuff. She has done nothing wrong and her innocence is endearing but its time to let the talons out! Go Girl! Protect whats yours!

My Rating
4.0 Orange Platforms, Party Invitation, Bathroom Hurling, New Proposition, Dinner Date, Sleep Over, White Lace, Grand Hall, Speeding Car, Scorned Proposition, Broken Heart Filled Stars! for an entertaining and intriguing read I highly recommend this bad boy!

About The Author 

Georgia Le Carre lives in England, in an old 19th century romantic cottage surrounded by a magical garden filled with fruit and walnut trees. When she is not feeding words into her laptop, she is either curled up in bed with a box of chocolates and a good read, or lost in a long walk in the woods. Especially on moonlit nights. And often with the man of her dreams.
