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.

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…



This was a fun, entertaining, sexy, and very intriguing read!

The Billionaire Banker tells the story of Lana, an innocent young lady who finds herself desperate to save her mom's life. In that desperation she decides to make the toughest decision in her life and offer herself to a rich man. But Lana's plans change completely when Blake Barrington, a billionaire banker, crosses her path. He decides he wants her from the moment he lays eyes on her and he knows there's nothing he can't get. So he steals her away from her original buyer and that's when their lives change forever.

Lana is introduced to a complete new world. A world full of money, luxuries, and pleasure. That world also has a hidden dark side that Blake is not willing to share with her because what they have it supposed to be just an uncommitted temporary arrangement and nothing else. However, it's Lana's innocence and pureness that start to stir new emotions in Blake. He has never questioned the plans already established for him by his family's expectations but Lana has brought a new light into his life, a light that he has become addictive to.

Now Lana is able to see Blake in a different way beyond his money and status. She knows she shouldn't expect anything more from their arrangement yet she's still wishes things were different. But it's at shocking point in the story when she's forced to say goodbye to her impossible love for Blake in order to protect her unknown and fragile future...

The plot I found it very intriguing and with a unique twist because the characters are brought together with all the odds already against them. Also, there's so much mystery behind Blake's story that is yet to be revealed in Forty 2 Days (book #2).

The book has a cliffhanger at the end so I was left in suspense for more. I liked that the story wasn't predictable at all which makes me that much eager to find out what happens to Lana and Blake in Forty 2 Days!

If you like your stories with badass billionaire heroes and with a little bit of a twisted plot The Billionaire Banker is the book for you! I really enjoyed it and I think it was a great debut novel for Georgia Le Carre. :)

Favorite Quotes:

"His strong hands span her narrow waist and before she knows it she is traveling in the air. She lands on the bed with slight bounce. On her back she watches him. His eyes are black and impenetrable. His body hard and big, the muscles rippling. "Mine," he says possessively."

"He seems devastatingly, impossibly handsome, but so aloof and unreachable that it is almost as if she has her nose pressed against a glass window and is looking in at something she can never have."

"He feels confused and lost. The only thing he knows for sure is that he aches for her. With every fiber of his being, he aches for her." 

"She is like a craving. An addiction."

"This is a dangerously sexy pair of white shorts, Miss Bloom," he teases. "Do you have the necessary license to operate such a weapon?"
