The Billionaire Banker Blog Tour - Review, Excerpt & Giveaway

Hi Everyone! I have a stop on The Billionaire Banker blog tour. There is a review of the book, an excerpt and a giveaway for you all.

The Billionaire Banker
Book One
By: Georgia Le Carre

Blurb
When Lana Bloom learns the devastating news that her mother is dying, she is faced with a terrible dilemma. The one thing that can save her is the one thing she does not have. For young and innocent Lana, the unthinkable becomes her only choice.

But when she walks through the door of that exclusive restaurant she has no idea of the seismic shift her life is about to take, for the highest bidder will not be the rich man she has accompanied. Fate drops her at the feet of the deeply mysterious and dazzlingly gorgeous American banker, Blake Law Barrington. Throbbing with raw masculinity and arrogance, this is a man who owns all that he pursues.

And now he wants her.

Lana cannot deny she is both intrigued and intoxicated by the world Blake inhabits and the smouldering passion he stirs in her body, but she is also fearful for this man is addictive, and right now she is very vulnerable. She knows she should focus only on the arrangement, but how can she…when he has opened a door that cannot be closed?

My Review
Lana will do anything to help her mother who has cancer. If it means selling her self so be it. Things begin to look up when she gets proposition by a sexy rich man. It means the nasty man she first approached doesn't get her. She is in no way prepared for Blake Barrington. He is rich, sexy and hard not to fall for. He gives her new things money and all she has to do is be his for 3 months. She soon learns the rich have a dark side as well. She will have to leave eventually but she knows now she will walk away leaving her heart behind.

Lana is inexperienced but she knows she will do anything for her mom. She is a very caring woman who really touches all those around her. She may be a poor person but she never lets getting some money go to her head. She will do anything to make Blake happy and for his own good. Blake at times can seem cold but you can tell he is a good guy. He just has had a hard upbringing in the fact his family is cold. I love how he is with Lana's mom.

I really enjoyed this book as it may sound similar to others it is well written and while sex is a part of the book you still have a great story. You really end up liking Lana and Blake. You want them together even if you know it can't be. The author does a great job showing both sides of the rich and the poor. You get a look into both main characters lives. I also loved Billie. She adds her own flair to the story. Instead of Lana just having a life revolving around Blake she also has her own life. I love the scene where Blake tries to cook. I think I began to fall for him myself there. If your looking for a well written sexy story pick this one up and be prepared to really want the next book. The ending has me wanting to know what next so bad.

Excerpt
Rupert directs his astonished, vicious eyes at Lana’s. ‘You offered yourself to him too?’

Lana stares mutely at Rupert. His eyes move derisively, hatefully over her. She feels herself cringe.

‘Does he know how much you charge?’

‘Do you doubt I will be able to afford her?’ asks Blake.

Rupert shrivels the way a leech that has had salt thrown on it does. ‘This is why you invited me here, isn’t it?’

‘Yes.’

‘What a joke!’ he taunts, but his jibe lacks any real bite. ‘The great Barrington can’t find his own whore. He has to steal mine.’

‘I didn’t steal her,’ Blake notes reasonably. ‘I just offered to pay more.’

Rupert’s eyes bulge, bug-like. ‘She’s just a cheap bloody tart. I’ve just finger-fucked her out there,’ he taunts maliciously, jerking his dandruff-laden head in the direction of the door.

Lana feels Blake’s hand tighten around her waist. ‘Consider it an unearned freebie, then,’ he says quietly, but there is warning in the calm words. A warning that is not lost on Rupert. The air becomes tight with tension. Lana looks from one man to the other. It is like watching two lions fighting for supremacy. But her body knows which lion she wants to win this fight.

Rupert shrugs. He knows he’d be a fool to go against a Barrington. He has much to lose. ‘If you think I’m going to fight over her you’re mistaken. Have her.’

He turns on his heel and leaves.

Blake lets go of Lana. She realizes she is trembling. She leans against the desk, hating herself, but unable to stop—nothing is more important than the money—she asks, ‘Did you mean it about the money?’

Author Info
Georgia Le Carre lives in England, in an old 19th century romantic cottage surrounded by a magical garden filled with fruit and walnut trees. 

When she is not feeding words into her laptop, she is either curled up in bed with a box of chocolates and a good read, or lost in a long walk in the woods. Especially on moonlit nights. And often with the man of her dreams.
