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 ans

★★★★★! Besotted, book 3 of 5. The continuation of aloof Billionaire Blake Barrington & Lana’s story dealing with their pasts, present & future!

“You will never know how lonely I was without you, but you have to understand that I am only strong when I am certain you are safe. And you are only safe when you are innocent. You can never come to me. Always I will make the journey to you.”

Books in series should be read in order:
Book 1: The Billionaire Banker - Blake & Lana
Book 2: Forty 2 Days - Blake & Lana
Part 2.1: Exposed - BlakLana

This is the conclusion of Lana Bloom and Blake Law Barrington's story in the Billionaire Banker Series. Georgia Le Carre delivers a beautiful conclusion to their story.

Lana Bloom is no longer the innocent, naïve young woman we met in The Billionaire Banker and in Forty 2 Days. Lana has grown into a strong woman and mother to baby Sorab. Lana has questiStars!!!

This book was just that. Blake and Lana are besotted with one another. They are so besotted that they have sex a lot. Sometimes it is a little rough, sometimes is tender and then there are just sometimes it's just way out there (view spoiler).

I am still devouring this series, although I have to say that a few things did bother me about this book. The biggest is that the story ended at 78%; which usually really ticks me off when I'm not warned about that. On the positive note, there was a novella at the end, that gave readers Blake's POV from the important scenes from books one and two! It is for sale on Amazon; but if you buy "Besotted" you get that novella free inside.

While I think it was a great ride, I was kind of shocked as I hit the very last page, all I could think of, "That's it?" Besotted felt more like an extensive epilogue of 42 Days with some minor bumps and Blake's and Lana's psychological development. When I first saw the blurb, I thought it would be a full novel with real conflicts and climax.

Well, there I got it. It wasn't. Not really.

Besotted is the 3rd book of The Billionaire Banker series. I totally loved the first two books and I loved this third book too!!

Besotted follows Blake and Lana's life right after the death of his father in book 2. The book had some great HOT breathtaking parts, some lovely romantic parts, some totally sweet parts with them and their child Sorab and some other interesting parts regarding his ex Victoria and his brother.

Where do I begin? The day I bought The Billionaire Banker, I was hooked on the beautiful writing style of this author. I inhaled her first, second and now third book in a span of hours. There's something about her stories that keeps me reading until I've reached the end and wish the pages would multiply so the story could go on and on. I love the way she's able to pull you into Blake and Lana's heat, passion and lust. It's so real seeming that you can relate to it as you read. Their story is one ...more

I'm really enjoyed this series and the Bonus material.
This 3 Star rating in no way reflects the way I feel about this series. This rating is only for this book alone. The quality of writing was there, but the already short book ended at 78%. I don't feel like this should have been a separate book. It should have either been part of book 2 or combined with book 3.

This book was very anticlimactic. There was little to no drama. No bizarre twists or turns. Just a few run ins with Marcus and a couple of manipulative scenes from Victoria's POV. This boo
Not much of a story here! I gave it 3* only because the author was still able to keep the protagonists as appealing as they'd been in the two earlier books. It got three stars also due to the inclusion of some of Blake's POV, as an extra at the end! I will read the last two parts only because of a friend who tells me the quality improves, and I'm curious to find out if the author can bring more excitement.

Besotted...that I am!

So how do you say goodbye to this dynamic duo...without feeling so choked up you could hardly speak, tears threatening to fall? It's like saying goodbye to your own best friends. Since I've come to love and know Blake and Lana so well, they've become so much a part of me. They sometimes come to mind when I lay silently in bed at night, wishing I have the kind of love they share that has me inspired. How many successful authors able to that, where after reading a
I absolutely love this series!

This book is the most romantic of the 3, but has some pretty steamy love scenes - oh yes indeed!!! Blake is totally gaga for Lana! He never thought he could feel such love for her and Sorab...And so this part of the story is him getting in the groove of his happy little family. Some twists and turns with Marcus and Victoria who I see in the future are going to cause a ruckass, but bring it on!

This book was completely unnecessary. It answered zero questions, and all it managed to do was make me annoyed with Blake. He went from a sexy, dominating force in the first couple of books to a cheesy, lovestruck fool.
Until I met you I never wanted a woman's tears, but I want your sighs, I want your laughter, I want your joy, your smell, your smile. I want it all."
This is a far cry from the man who once made her bend over just so he could stare at her and enjoy her humiliation.

when I finished book 2, I contacted Georgia Le Carre and asked when the release dates were for 3+4. She confirmed 13 + 14 May. Imagine to my surprise and disappointment that book 4 wont be released now until July - hence the reason why I immensely dislike this form of writing.

I find it very hard to be positive reviewing books like this - despite the fact I did like Georgia Le Carre's writing voice and I thought the plot (initially) had potential.

I loved the first book, the second less so and this times I couldn't see the point, this book didn't really seem to go anywhere, lots of sex but if I'm being totally honest it didn't feel like a separate book, more like an extension of the previous one 'Forty 2 Days' the reviews are nearly all fantastic so I must be missing something, have I given up on this series?

Loved this third installment of 'The Billionaire Banker' series. Blake and Lana are so beautiful together and with baby Sorab they have become a real family unit. Cant wait for 'Seduce Me'.

Besotted was such a disappointment. I did enjoy the read, but nothing happened and the read was VERY SHORT.

I rather have waited for next book and just read this one and the next one in one sitting. Besotted should have been a novella.

Lana and Blake are adorable, plus you have cute baby Sorab. YAY! Both are a happy family and Blake is very much in love with Lana. There are some steamy kinky scenes, which made Besotted more enjoyable. All I’m gonna say is whisky bottle and ice. You get the picture.

This is quite a culmination of Lana and Blake's story. It's short, but there are many important things that happen in it. Lana realizes that she will have to learn to stand on her own with Blake's family and Victoria, but not without Blake completely. Blake realizes he cannot live without Lana, and in the last book we learned the lengths he is willing to go to keep her and his son safe. Blake breaks things off with Victoria, not realizing that she's a better actress than he thought. Lana soon fi ...more

Love Blake and Lana together; I really love how protective Blake is with Lana and his son and I love how possessive he is with them... What I don't like is the fact that this book was so short and didn't provided more insight on what's going on with this secret society or what's going to happen; I have no clue where the story line is going... It's kinda of frustrating...

I am really interested in seeing what Victoria has planned to try and win back Blake... I know

The secrets of society should remain secret. The fight to be the man you wish and the man you are borned into is heavy on Blakes shoulders. I truly thought the fight was over in book two but I now see it has only truly began. I want to choke Victoria.. Blake needs to see her for what she truly is. Lana needs to accept that some things are better left a secret.

I absolutely enjoyed this book! Love the authors writing style and her ability to really make the reader feel the emotions of the characters while giving us a glimpse into how the ultra wealthy live. I liked this much, much better than book two. My only complaint is that it was too short and a bit of a cliff hanger. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

Much like the second half of book two, this book leaves a lot to be desired. Though some areas seem to be resolved, there seem to be a lot of unanswered questions.
In this book, there are illusions of villains to come and of course the crazy ex-fiance, Victoria.
I hope that there is another book because to me this story is far from done.
