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:
The first thing I want to say is you MUST read book 1 first!

In the beginning of the book, we find Lana awaiting anxiously for her turn to speak to the loan officer who would either approve or deny her application. Fear and hope are riding high on this much needed loan, she'll either make it or break it. In her state of agitation and apprehension, her senses are so keen to every single activity around her and got even more afraid when she was taken up to the upper level of the bank when everyone else were being seen on the first level. She felt even more dreadful when she was ushered discreetly into a private office and got the shock of her life to find the man sitting behind the desk, was none other than the hot and amazing, enigmatic Blake. The same man she ran away from, the very same who, come hell or high water, wants his 42 days she owed him. Nothing and no one will stand in his way in getting what he wants...and he wants Lana. What ensues next was challenging, at times sad and humiliating, but by gosh, hotter than hell exciting and exhilarating! It's full of heat and love, it's the culmination of the great temptation and consummation of searing desire for each other, that of Blake and Lana.

Throughout the book, Lana becomes stronger and stronger and her determination to have and love Blake is her driving point. Her character development builds into a very strong, loving and determined woman. The end of the book leaves us wondering if she will still give Blake her unconditional love.

Just like the first book, Le Carre leaves us with a big cliffhanger and keeps us wondering if the bitch, Victoria get her’s in the end, will brother Marcus play a part in redemption of Blake?
