Beyond the seductive power of immense wealth lies... Dark Secrets 

Devastatingly 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 

The way I see it

Eeeeeeeep!! OMG y’all have no idea how much I’ve been anticipating this book! Let.Me.Tell.You. It does NOT DISSAPOINT! Lana and Blake are smoking hot! Ms Le Carre knows how to write a steamy scene! This is one you won’t be able to put down. From the first page to the last it will keep you riveted. The book starts off a year after the ending of the last and we find out everything that has gone on since that fateful day.

F-inances, Lana and Billie have a plan. The ultimate goal will be to have an honest and better life.
O-pportunity, Blake finds his missing little bird and he will make her pay for the pain she has caused him.
R-eality, Lana loves Blake with all of her heart. Her betrayal had to happen in order to protect Sorab.
T-hrown, back into the lion’s den, Lana loves Blake and the amount of pain he is causing her is excruciating.
Y-earning, Blake has discovered Lana’s secret now he knows he cannot cause her any more harm. Lana is unaware why and hesitant about the change yet her love for Blake won’t allow her to push for the answers she seeks. Yet.

2-, powerful parties are playing a lethal game. Blake’s father has a key role in so many terrible dealings. He is gunning for Lana next she will once again be faced with an impossible situation.

D-esire, consuming and ever present Lana wants one night away where she will bare her soul and give Blake every inch of her.
A-cquiesces, Blake will give Lana something no other woman has ever had.
Y-es, for so long Lana has been kept in the dark. No more secrets Lana wants every part of this man she vows to correct many wrongs.
S-imple, pure though nothing can explain their love, it is a fierce and tangible thing. Both Lana and Blake will protect no matter the price.

Gah!!!! I have a very bad feeling about a very bad man who is going to be very p.o’d but in the mean time three cheers for Blake! At the beginning of the story my heart was shredded to pieces. Blake’s agony definitely resonated and became a tangible thing. I wanted Lana to confess everything to him all of her loses and the pain she experienced at the hand of his awful family. In the end I’m glad she didn’t, it was better that he find out on his own so Blake could see exactly what his family had caused. The book wasn’t as long as I would’ve thought I would’ve liked but it turned out to be perfect. There is no denying the way these two feel about each other so I was happy that Ms Le Carre did not drag something out that didn’t need to be. There are plenty of shocking and heartfelt moments. Billie is the same vibrant person we have come to love and Jack is ever present and ever mindful of Lana. Her friends have gotten her through some doozies. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this series!!! I CANNOT wait to see what is in store for this power couple! #i’llBePacingTheFloorUntilThen

My Fav’s

Duh! This guy is downright drool worthy! He is the same domineering and controlling powerful man we know from the first book. In this installment we see a different side of him an angry and vengeful side that is absolutely heart breaking. Not only do we feel his heartbreak but we get to experience his road to mending and embracing his heart’s desire. We get glimpses of very endearing moments which are nice, but mostly he is his usual super sexy self. I can’t wait to see what other challenges he will be forced to overcome I will be cheering him along!

My heart goes out to her even though I wanted to shake her I understood her plight. Lana has been through so much heart ache, yet she has this incredible ability to love. She knew that she hurt Blake very badly but she was willing to make sacrifices to ensure she paid her debts. I admired her for the person she became and her will to be everything that Blake needed.

My Rating
4.5 Bank Loan, 42 Days, Lonely Apartment, Coffee Meetings, Orange and Black, Emotional Breakdown, Italy Trip, Park Rendevoux, Cronus Warning, Love Confession, Plane, Church, Prayer, Love Filled Stars!!! This is a super sexy read I def recommend this series!

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.

And often with the man of her dreams.
