5 Stars

Climbing The Walls by Sacha T.Y. Fortune is the first installment of the Hart & Cole Series and it is a contemporary romance book. This is the story of Kris and Nicole, a married couple with children and how they deal with their day to day relationship. They are total polar opposites but you know what they say, opposites attract. Kris is a patient and caring person which would do anything for his family, even if it means doing more than his share. Nicole is beautiful and very is sexy, but an can be a total bitch. She always finds a way to use her sex appeal to get her way. She is realizing with time that her children always gravitate to their father, because she is a workaholic and is never home. She wants to become a better mother but she always allows her work and her writing to get in the way. These two have so much raw chemistry that when they clash, they clash hard, but find the way to makeup and sparks fly. Since the story is written in alternating POV, you always know how Kris & Nicole are feeling at that moment, whether it is anger, jealousy or happiness. There were times in the story that I got so frustrated with both due to their volatile relationship and how they treated each other so cruelly at times, it makes you wonder if they will be able to maintain their marriage with all the obstacles put in their way. I enjoyed reading this book and found myself at times pushing myself to read past my bedtime. I recommend this book and I definitely look forward to reading the rest of the series.

WOW!! This book has me at a loss for words. I won’t lie, it did take me a little while to get into the story line, but stick it out and I promise you will not regret it. I have so many mixed emotions for each character, I want to take Kris’ side most of the time but then I want to be on Nicole’s side and my head is just a mess.

Nicole is, as the description says, a piece of work. I want to hate her, I want to smack her and knock some sense into her. I understand her boss is demanding, but at some point I would think she would just say no. No to all the late night and very early phone calls, no to staying at work late A LOT. I want her to say yes to spending time with her family, especially her kids. These wishes, I did not get. Nicole did in fact work late, and took her boss’ phone calls even at the most inconvenient times, and I could feel Kris’ patience with her and their marriage waning.

Kris is a good father, a good husband and sometimes will go out of his way to try and plan something for them as a family, like a technology free weekend. Well you can guess how that turned out from my description of Nicole. I know he loves his wife, but the way she acts and the way she treats him and the kids is weighing on him heavily. I don’t blame him for some of the things he does, his wife’s actions would probably make anyone snap, but I think maybe he did take things a little too far at the end. I thought he had more self restraint.

This review may be vague and I do apologize. I don’t want to give anything away or spoil any of the plot because, I truly want anyone who reads this book to get all of the surprises like I did. This book had me shaking my head, talking to myself and asking questions to nobody. This is a book I normally wouldn’t pick up and read, but the summary had me wanting to give it a try and I am so glad I did. I do recommend this book, and will say again please stick it out because the story is fantastic and totally worth the late night reading sessions to finish.

Climbing the Walls is a bit longer than books I’ve been reading as of late but it was well worth my time. I was drawn to this book, and new to me
author because the premise of the story seemed realistic but different than most books I read.
Honestly, Sacha T. Y Fortune did not disappoint.
Climbing the Walls kept my attention from beginning to end with characters that truly highlighted the complexities of marriage. The plot flowed well with twists and turns that took me on a rollercoaster of emotion. I’m really looking forward to reading on in the Hart & Cole series.

Climbing The Walls is the first book in the Hart & Cole series and it is also my first book by this author. It is really well written and i love the authors writing style. The story is told from duel POV’s and i think that makes the book that much more appealing because you get to see two sides of the same story.
Nicole is a hardworking mother of two and is married to a man that she loves dearly. She is a HUGE workaholic and her boss is constantly pulling her away from her home life. She wants to be a good wife and mother, but with her schedule she is always away and that is causing problems in her marriage. When her boss wants a shoulder to cry on she sees how fragile her marriage really is.
Kris whole-heartedly loves his wife and he adores his children, but with Nicole gone all of the time it has put a strain on their marriage and the people around him are making him question the marriage and if it is stronger than the problems they’re going through.
Man oh man oh man, what an awesome story. And that freakin’ twist!!! I did not see that coming! I enjoyed this book and i am looking forward to reading more of this series and also more of this author. I would recommend this book to a friend.
Happy Reading!

Climbing The Walls (Hart & Cole Book 1) by Sacha T.Y. Fortune’ had me hooked from the first page, I read almost the whole book in one sitting. The characters were so much fun to follow and get to know. The book was very well written, and kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. I enjoyed the way the author jumped between characters it kept it me on my toes. This is a new author for me and I absolutely fell in love with the writing and characters. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series, or anything else by this author. If I could give this book more than 5 stars, I would. Great Great Read!

Climbing the Walls is a book like no other, and Sacha T.Y Fortuné has just set the mark high for anything to compete with this read.

Finishing this book has left me we even more raw, unexplained emotions than it was when I was reading it! This read is very real & raw. There are no words to describe how invested you get with this story, even though it starts off slow you know full well things will eventually turn into something more you still can’t help but wish things don’t turn bad as you imagine them to get!

This story takes you along on a journey of two normal yet flawed couple who love each other unconditionally even when all is against them. Kris & Nicole story is told in a completely new way to me, but it’s in a way that makes you even more completely emotionally invested in this read. This read makes you smile and laugh with Kiki’s antics, frustrated and angry to the point I’ve had to stop reading and take some time to process and forgive the characters all over again!
This is one of the best reads I have read in a very long time, it’s raw, real, it has angst, hot steamy passion and incredible characters twists and turns that leave you wanting and needing more, both Kris & Nicole have their story to tell and boy do they tell it!

I don’t want to lose these characters – I cannot wait for the next book Pandora’s Poison just to see how far the intensity can go with this story!

It feels like I’m currently experiencing a million different emotions! I’ve just finished reading this book and I’m having a hard time coming up with a review, how do you properly describe a book that has just wrecked you, completely? I had a hard time reading this book, not because the story didn’t flow or because it wasn’t well written, but in fact it was the exact opposite. From the beginning I felt emotionally invested in this story and at times it felt like there was a 300lb weight on my chest. This story is beyond emotional, it’s gritty, real, raw, heart-wrenching, shocking and simply phenomenal!

If you’re looking for a fun and easy romance read this is not the book for you, but if your looking for a romance read that has the ability to change you as a person, one that will have you at a loss for words and thoughts THIS IS THE ONE FOR YOU!

I can’t wait to dive in to the rest of the series, but first I’ll need to take a reading break to properly process everything I’m feeling!

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

Climbing The Walls (Hart & Cole Book 1) by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné is not your everyday romance story. It is a very real, very emotional, very raw, very serious look at a marriage between perfectly normal and flawed people, with everyday problems. It is told in both POV’s which gives you an even better insight to their feelings and hopes and desires. As powerful and captivating as this story was I found that it was a bit slow for me. It is a long story and I wanted it to move forward a bit faster. I found myself getting frustrated because I wanted to know if the writing on the wall would be what I thought. I needed to know how things ended and I needed to know now. Soooooooooo……. I did the cardinal sin and jumped to the last few chapters. This compelling story is at times funny and yet serious, romantic and sexy and is full of sadness and anger. It is also testing the bounds of trust, loyalty and marriage. It shows the struggles and fights, the pain and hurt that all relationships go through and we know are hard work and sometimes you have to wonder if love is always enough.

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 my first book I’ve read by this author. Climbing the wall is a Absolutely stunning read and is Book 1 in the Hart and Cole Series. Let me start off by saying I love the way this book is written. You get to know what Kris and Nicole are feeling it’s written from both sides so you get to know them both really well and get to understand who was thinking what. Nicole is a workaholic wife and mother who has a high demand job and Kris is more hands on with the kids and being home. Kris and Nicole are trying to balance Work, Love, Kids and everything life throws at them. Climbing the walls is a long book to read it is not one you can read in a short time but the way its written keeps you absorbed and wanting more you will not be disappointed. I can not wait to read book two and see what’s next.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Climbing The Walls by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné is the first book in the Hart & Cole series. The story is told in alternating point of views to tell the story of Kris and Nicole. Nicole is a hardworking married mother. She is stubborn and has a bit of a streak. She struggles with how to make all her parts of her life work together while keeping her head straight. This is an interesting read concerning the highs and lows of marriage. I like the struggles and the emotion that is used in the book. The realism is what helps make the story so good. I overall liked the characters but sometimes wondered about Nicole. She tended to get on my nerves at points. This was good at times because it made her more human.
