The Billionaire Banker

The Billionaire Banker - Georgia Le Carre I kind of have mixed feelings about this book. I know I have read and enjoyed other books in the past where the young naive woman makes a contract with a billionaire for loads of money in exchange for an affair. But for some reason, this book kind of rubbed me the wrong way. I felt like Lana was so young, not only in age, but in experience. I can understand her motivation for wanting to save her mother, but this arrangement just felt wrong to me. I will say that I was kind of beginning to like Blake. I could see that he was falling for Lana and was contemplating changing his life. But, when he made his comments about not doing anything to stop a pedophile who was in the "inner circles" of his level of society, I lost all respect. Really? How anyone would want to contemplate loving someone with that attitude is beyond me. I don't care how silver the spoon in his mouth was when he was born. That isn't the attitude that I want my hero to have, ever.

The book was written fairly well and the loves scenes were definitely hot and steamy. It was just the other things that I couldn't get past enough to recommend it. I would say you might have to judge this one for yourself. It does end in a cliffhanger, so readers will have to wait for the second book, 42 Days to see what happens to Lana and Blake.
