REVIEW: Forty 2 Days by Georgia Le Carre

Summary:

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...

Thoughts:

Wow, just wow. There’s a lot going on in this book. Blake at the beginning of the book is a complete jerk and I wanted to throw him in a well, but the contrast between the beginning and the “switch” is very stark and I loved it. The story starts off feeling like a horribly abusive relationship (though that does play a part anyway), but despite that and her having a few weak moments, Lana seems like a stronger woman this time around.

Beyond the characters though, the story was riveting. That being said, I was left with a lot of questions and the big secret that’s finally revealed is a little far fetched for me. Due to that, I’m torn about just how much I look forward to the next book. However, it’s still lots of yummy drama and I love how Blake and Lana ended up. My biggest question is what ever happened with the pink shirt? Hehe.

A note on a something not really relevant to the story itself: I was raised to believe that the “C” word is the ultimate dirty word. I know in some places it’s very common and that it’s used often in erotica stories, and I don’t mind it so much anymore, but I gloss over it when I read it and can barely think it, let alone say it. The word plays a role in this particular story and at one point Lana looks it up, thinks it over, and decides to own it. The entire scene made me honestly enjoy the use of the “C” word and it doesn’t bother me nearly as much as it used to. Thanks to the author for that alone – Bravo!

Bottom Line:

Forty 2 Days is a story that will keep you guessing and pull at your emotions from the first page to the last. It ends up in a very different way than expected and leaves plenty of room for more. Don’t miss out on this compelling sequel!
