Suddenly I am swamped with a sense of déjà vu

When I read that line, I should have just given up because that is exactly how I felt – been there and done that in the first book. And the first book was not exactly a thrilling experience for me so …

There were the same clichés in this book that annoyed me.

This book? I'm still trying to figure out what I thought. On the one hand there were parts that I wanted a little more from; more information, more explanation, just more. But on the other hand, I built up those expectations in my head, so I can't really get annoyed that the author went in a different direction than I had hoped for. So let m

Well...that was interesting. I was excited to jump in to this one after the cliffhanger ending in The Billionaire Banker so imagine my surprise when I get started and find out this book starts ONE YEAR LATER!!!

Lana and her mom have been in Iran as she fulfills her agreement with that bitch Victoria. At the conclusion of the year, Lana returns home. She and Billie are looking to start a new business and
The second book in this series had me hooked right from the start!! I will admit though that I share the same opinion as a lot of the other reviews out there, that is that the first 50% of this story was fabulous...somewhere after that things took on a whole new tone, and Blake's personality did an extreme turn about. It was hard to swallow; one half he was so angry with her, and then the next half his anger had floated away. It almost felt like a bit of the twilight zone! LOL The rest of the ev ...more

This story takes place approximately a year after the end of The Billionaire Banker. Time has move on, events have taken place. There are still emotional feelings at play and an agreement to complete.

This is a really hard review to do. I loved this book and then I was like I am not liking this book. There were so many questions left unanswered. There were so many scenarios that were way out there and I could have gone with them but they seemed too extreme.

I loved Blake at the beginning. This story picks up a year after The Billionaire Banker. Blake is angry, bitter, out for revenge when he finally sees Lana again. He had loved her and she left him, not even knowing

Unfortunately, this book is going to be impossible to review thoroughly without spoilers. So, at risk of spoiling it, my review will be uber vague.

Forty Two Days starts off roughly a year after the conclusion of the Billionaire Banker. If you haven't read BB, stop now as this has spoilers for that book. We were left with Lana being paid off and moved to Iran.. She's pregnant and Blake is laying in a hospital bed with a head injury after saving her life. Fast forward a

Before I begin, I'd like to thank the author, Georgia Le Carre, for providing me with an ARC of book 2.

I did enjoy both books. I ended up liking book 1 a bit better because I am not a fan of stories [erotica especially] told by a first-person narrator.

Some of my other likes/dislikes ...

I was overcome with multitude of emotions after reading 42 DAYS, I was stunned that I needed time to recover. When this happens, you know you've read an amazing book. The main characters, Blake and Lana, and the ensemble cast brings to the forefront a myriad of emotions to the readers. Ms. Georgia Le Carre's incredible talent brought balance to the credibility of the plot in combining love, passion, power and greed with suspense. You will be biting your nails a

It's taken me few days to finally write my review because to be honest I strugged with it. I really enjoyed the first books and was very much looking forward to the second and the resolutions that where brought up in the first.

So this definitely wasn't for me.
It felt raw.. and not in a good way.
From the way the heroine self loathed and accepted abuse, to the insensitive mention of triggers, nothing worked for me. I won't go into spoilers, but this messed up love story gave me no feels. And I've read and appreciated dark romance before.
Not safe at all
4-4.5 stars

I didn't know at first that this was a trilogy, but everything is these days so no huge surprise there. However, this story progresses well, so I didn't feel like this book was a filler. It does have an interesting twist, which I couldn't decide if it made the story more intriguing or more unbelievable.

This story begins one year after the first book ends. (view spoiler)

This book picks up a year later from Billionaire Banker. Lana isn't innocent anymore & Blake is angry he gave his heart to Lana only to have her leave him in the hospital for money.Circumstances are not what Blake believes and secret signed contracts forbid Lana to tell Blake the truth.

Book 2 didn't disappoint me a bit, I totally loved all the twists, the story development and the super steamy sex.

Blake and Lana that sniff each other's intimate parts to see if they had cheated was superhot!

I so loved the name of the baby: Sorab... so cute and meaningful and would have loved more moments of Blake with his son. Their moments together were too cute!

The end of the book was totally unexpected. Even though I had imagined his father was going to have a bad end.

Wow, what a gripping story!!!


There are many components in this book that totally makes it a winner for me. Here are the points that I loved the most! :)

First, Georgia Le Carre switches gears in Forty 2 Days and now tells the story in first person through Lana's eyes. I really liked that switch because I got to know Lana better and I was able to feel more of what she was going through in the story. And let me tell you, she goes through a roller coaster of suspense, pass

Wow, one of the reasons why I love picking up unknown authors is because I like to see how much he/she can improve from book one to book two of a series. The writing style of Forty 2 days is better, now written in first POV, not that I had a problem with third POV, but now it’s not awkward anymore.

There will be spoilers from Book one, The Billionaire Banker.

So, I was pissed with the ending of book one. I was floored that Lana left and Blake thinks she was just a gold digging whore. I d

This is the continuation of the Billionaire Banker Series. The first part was openly a fantasy/romance with some touches of political and social economical concepts which lent added differences to an already well used genre. I had found interest; actually enjoyed my read and hopped onto the next part.

I didn't enjoy this one nearly as much as I did Owned. I expected Blake's anger (and was happy to see it), but there were a lot of things I thought were stupid. I didn't buy Lana's explanation of what happened to the money. Her entire reasoning for taking it in the first place was to create a better life for her son, so to do what she did makes zero sense. There were other things too. She initially went to the bank to get a loan for a small business she and Billie want to start. I waited and wai ...more

Where do I begin? Being a new author myself, time is so precious, but when I received 'Forty Two Days' by Georgia Le Carre, I pushed everything aside and read it to the last page in several hours. She had me hooked on her first book, 'The Billionaire Banker'. I was up till the crack of dawn reading on my tablet, wanting to know how Lana and Blake will fair through all their struggles. She left me hanging and wanting more, counting down the days when her next book will come out. 'Forty Two Days' ...more
Well this book/sequel didn't disappoint one bit! Loved how she started the book a year later -

Blake can't let go of the fact that Lana left him...he wants revenge... So when the opportunity presents itself, he is there. Lana is so shocked to think he still wants her, knowing their relationship was just about sex, but she doesn't know squat - how deep his feelings for her go! The little nuances of Blake, how he is evolving into a different person because of Lana is so sweet. He learns to cook a
