Climbing The Walls was a page turning 5 star read and the first book in the Hart & Cole series.
Once I started I didn’t want to stop.
We get alternating POV between Kris and Nicole who have been married for about eight years. Nicole is a workaholic that doesn’t have much of a relationship with her children. Kris loves Nicole despite how certain people feel about her in his life. They make it work and have two beautiful children. I love their kids they pulled me right in and tugged at my heart strings.
When Nicole’s boss starts having marital problems, things start to shift for Nicole and Kris as well. Are they as happy as they portray to their friends and family? There is so much more to this emotional rollercoaster of a read. There is so much going on that it causes questions to come up and not so great assumptions at times. There was a huge unexpected and disappointing twist. I didn’t see it coming and it left me shattered. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story, some I liked some I didn’t.
Sacha T. Y. Fortuné does a great job of pulling you right in with her writing. There isn’t a cliffhanger but I didn’t feel like it ended in a good place for me. I’m hoping to see more from these two and get some answers. I can’t wait to start book two in the series.
