Books in series should be read in order:
Book 1: The Billionaire Banker - Blake & Lana
Book 2: ...more
I really don't have anything else to say at this point...I just need to read on...excuse me
Buddy Read with the fabulous SueBee!!
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 questions that need to be answered by Blake in order for her to move forward with thei ...more
"he became besotted with his best friend's sister"
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)[the whiskey bottle.....holy shit (hide spoiler)].
I loved the connection that Blake and Lana have but I wanted more. I had so many questio ...more
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.
The other thing that irked me, and I unfortunatel ...more
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.
Please back off and read no more if you haven't read the book. You could easily answer all the l ...more
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.
Loved Blake in this book even more than in the first two, loved ...more
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 ...more
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 great story, ...more
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!
Georgia really has done her homework on explaining 7 star hotels and re ...more
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.
And that's ALL ...more
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.
Book 3 gave away nothing - no further forward. Pre ...more
I love Blake! Definitely one of my top favorite book males! I loved this, but it was too short! & I'm bummed the last book will be in another person's POV. WHY?!! Who is Julie Sugar?!! I support this author, but she could have wrapped up all the issues, questions, & wedding in this book - not make a fourth book in someone else's POV...WE NEED BLAKE OR LANA'S POV! I wanted to know what was going to happen with Marcus, Victoria & Lana meeting Blake's mothe...more
I needed more.
I loved the first book, the second less so and this one.....at 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? No, definitely not I love these two and I need to know what happens to them so I'm in this until the end.
'You're Like A Force That Swept Into My Life, Cast Me Into The Winds, And Set Me Ablaze. Afterwards You Made Me Rise From The Ashes, Like A Phoenix Reborn.' ~ Blake Law Barrington ~
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 ...more
Besotted we see so much more of this beautiful relationship that is
developing between Blake and Lana, and yet there is still a sense of so
much more potential Intrique. The sex is still damn hot and Blake is much
more attentive to Lana and Sorab in this book. I've read that in Seduce me
we are going to see the love between them through the eyes of the
bridesmaid Julie. This is a surprise direction, but its also the thing I
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 it's not going to happe ...more
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.
