5++++ stars

Its been days since I read this book and everytime I thought I had what I wanted to say staright in my head, it just didnt seem to do this book justice.
I loved the premise of this book, and the way it was written was unlike anything ive read before.
We all know relationships are hard work, add kids in the mix and busy work lives and you somehow put important things on the back burner when before they’d take top priority. Well that’s our main character Nicole. A busy mom with two jobs, a demanding boss that doesn’t care about office hours and shes willing to do whatever necessary.
Kris her husband, hes made to be superdad and for all he does and picking up for Nicole’s forgetfulness, he kind of is.
The whole story, which is written in a diary type form, you can feel the stage being set for something big and let me tell you I did not expect what happened to who, at all.

This is a must read. While long, I didn’t skim or skip, it was that important to read it all. I’m chomping at the bit to read what’s next.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Climbing The Walls is the first book in Sacha T.Y. Fortune’s Hart & Cole series. It is my first encounter with the writer and if I am not mistaken, it is her debut book and if that is the case then be prepared for some greatness coming our way in future! She warns us that we should read the stories in the order they are published for the optimal enjoyment as they are linked and we meet the same characters in all of them, just that the focus is on different ones in each of them.
Climbing The Walls is the story of Nicole and Kristopher. Their story is of raw emotions and the baggage that both of them bring along into their marriage. As the story is told alternatingly from both of their point of view then at no point do one need to wonder how and what anyone is feeling! It also shows us how we interpret people and situations through the lenses of our past. The story is gripping and keeps you hooked until you come to the end! It is the story of a marriage and parenting and relationships and … The writer has filled the story with love and heartache, hope, fear, passion, regret, desperation … and even though there is no real cliffhanger, you find out whose the next book is about and you know that you need to pick up a copy when it gets published!

Climbing The Walls (Hart & Cole Book 1)
By Sacha T. Y. Fortuné

This book was a rollercoaster of emotion!! I loved reading this book, it felt so real and I got completely invested in the characters lives and their marriage. This story had some unexpected twists and turns. I felt connected to Kris and Nicole and some of their hardships. There were times when I got so frustrated with Nicole and other times when I could empathize with her. I was taken on an unexpected journey of highs and lows, I laughed , I cried, and experienced every emotion in between while reading this story. I can’t wait to read the next one. I highly recommend this book.

Climbing The Walls (Hart & Cole #1) by Sacha T. Y. Fortune – Review by Kerry Baker

Climbing The Walls (Hart & Cole Book 1)Climbing The Walls by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Climbing The Walls by Sacha T. Y. Fortune is the first book in the Hart and Cole series. This book really delves into the complexities that is married life. It highlights that, no matter how much we might want to, sometimes we just can be perfect at everything. Sometimes we need to accept the way things actually are.
This book has introduced me to an entirely new author and what a way to be introduced it was. This book had everything. It had passion and romance as well as angst and nail biting moments. It is a detailed and interesting book. The author never lets the story rest for too long before she is moving it on and developing the characters.
I enjoyed how I didn’t always like one of the main characters as well. For me that is exactly how it can be in “real life” and it was great to see that reflected well in a book. It really helped me to connect with them.
This was a fantastic way to discover a new author and I am looking forward to the rest of this series.

5-stars

What an emotional rollercoaster! This novel hooked me in and I could not stop reading the drama unfolding between Nicole and Kris. I really felt that their struggles allowed their relationship to grow and for their characters to personally grow as well. I definitely was not a fan of Nicole at first but as the story progressed she grew on me. She became my favorite character. I also loved Khai and Nikki. They were precious and I hated seeing them hurt with some of the drama that unfolds in this book. This book was definitely something different for me. I haven’t ever read something that focused so much on the aspects of a couples crazy marriage. Great read!

No one said motherhood or marriage would be easy. But the high-powered job didn’t quite factor into the equation, nor did the attractive boss in dire need of a friendly shoulder to cry on…

CLIMBING THE WALLS

Kris fell, head over heels over hormones, for the damaged b*tch who became his power-woman sex-goddess wife.

All Nicole wants is to be a better mother, and a wife more worthy of the husband she loves with every fibre of her body, but she is constantly yanked away by her job and her overbearing boss Darren Hart.

But Darren has marital problems of his own – and, when he confides in her, Nicole realises just how easily a happy marriage can crumble.

…Can she keep her own from doing the same?

Told from both points of view, “Climbing The Walls” explores the fibres that hold a marriage together – love, trust, forgiveness… and of course, the earth-shattering sex that will not be denied.

Climbing The Walls (Hart & Cole Book 1) by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné – Review by Robin Rankin

Climbing The Walls (Hart & Cole Book 1)Climbing The Walls by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Climbing the Walls by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné is the first book Hart & Cole Series. This book had a lot happen in it, and the author did not skimp on any of the details. It was a lot longer than I would have expected it to be since the time period in the story itself covered such a short time.

Where do I start? Kris is an amazing father, his daughter and son are his life, especially his little girl and it is obvious from the very beginning. He’s also a great husband, not perfect but a lot of women would love to have a partner who did even a quarter of what he does, this woman included. All of this after having a less than stable household as a kid.

The description of Nicole in the synopsis was dead on. I did not want to like her at all. But as we got deeper into the story and learned about her and her life, things clicked for me and I actually could relate to some of the things.

There are two paths you can take as a parent, be like your parents or not like your parents, sometimes you pick the path subconsciously.

The kids are amazing, and I think I fell a little in love with both of them. But as the mom of two daughters I think Nikita grabbed just a bit more of my heart.

Amazing read, but not one you can bang out in a few hours.

“‘Climbing The Wall’ explores the fibres that hold a marriage together – love, trust, forgiveness… and of course, the earth-shattering sex that will not be denied.” Sacha T.Y. Fortune

Climbing the Walls by Sacha T.Y. Fortune is her debut book. This story is a woman’s fiction story which deals with marriage and self-awareness, and everything in between. Sacha T.Y. Fortune did an amazing job with her characters in the story. The emotional roller coaster that you ride from Ms. Fortune with the character of Nicole keeps you turning the pages to see what else Nicole will have to overcome. This is what kept me reading. You will have to read to see how Nicole deals with her life. Make sure you have Kleenex and adequate time to read in one sitting. I cannot wait to see what happens in the next chapter.

Climbing The Walls (Hart & Cole Book 1)Climbing The Walls by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Climbing the Walls by Sacha T.Y. Fortune a four-star read you will need to get over. This is the first novel in the Hart and Cole series and I ant wait for the rest. I think the best thing about this was showing us how hard married life can be, usually all you get to see in this type of book is the run up and then the wedding, all show and romance, not the day to day drudgery that we face in married life. Don’t get me wrong its not all doom and gloom, there is some good times as well and that’s what I liked about this, we see both sides of the relationship and how each decision affects people. That being said there is some love and passion that will burn your fingers, but there is a passion as well that you will love.
