This is the third novel of the story and it is highly recommend you read them in order it won’t feel complete or have the proper build up if you don’t. I absolutely love love love this series it’s not all hearts and flowers it’s real and gritty which is what i enjoyed it makes the storyline so captivating and i just couldn’t tear myself away from this story until i reached the end but I’m still left wanting more from this author!
Pandora’s Price by Sacha T. Y. Fortune is the third book in the Hart & Cole series. I can’t recommend enough that before reading this book to read the first two books in the series. This is the continuation of Darren and Luisa’s story. This is not a sappy, cute romance but a visceral, emotional read. I have enjoyed this book immensely as I had the previous books. I was able to read this quickly but was so sad when I reached the end. The characters are amazing and I could relate to bits and pieces of the characters. I do not want to say too much because I know I would give away parts of the story. I am glad I spent my time with this book and look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

Pandora’s Price (Hart & Cole Book 3) by Sacha T. Y Fortune. This is a great series and all of the books play on so many emotions but Pandora’s Price is probably the best in the series. Everything comes out the cheating, lies, secrets, wants, needs the desires. The characters are at their best yet and the storyline pulls you in instantly.
Pandora’s Price by Sacha T.Y. Fortuné
My rating 5 out of 5 stars
I don’t know how much more of this I can take. Sacha is killing me with these books. They are so detailed and and drawn out, I can’t put the book down! Every character is so well thought out and planned, all aspects of the story flow together so nicely.
From reading the first 2 books I wanted to hate Luisa. I don’t like the whole cheating on Darren thing, but this book has given me a new perspective on her and I have come to love her. I definitely now officially hate Nicole. The first book had me wanting more of Nicole and Kris but then my loyalties switched to Luisa and Darren.
Poor Luisa is crushed knowing her husband of twelve years is in love with another woman. I can completely understand why she does what she does with Gianni, I would be miserable and lost too if my husband couldn’t stop talking about his co worker. I do think they did try to reconcile their marriage, but it there was too much dishonesty and a big communication issue.
Luisa meeting and befriending Victoria is a great moment, I was hoping she would have a great girlfriend soon, but I do feel Vicki may have contributed to some of the outbursts and problems in not only Luisa and Darren’s relationship, but also Kris and Nicole’s as well. My eyes about bugged out of my head when all of the drama unfolded at Darren’s launch party, my hate for Nicole deepened when she says the most heinous and evil things to Luisa, as well as trying to seduce Darren. It was like this character did a complete 180 and was not the woman we meet in the first book. I feel sorry for Kris having to deal with her, but if that’s what he loves then more power to him.
The ending was nice and I won’t say why, as I think everyone should read until the end. I wouldn’t recommend any of these books as a standalone because there is so much to learn from each character starting with book 1. I really can’t wait to see what is in store for book four.
This is the third book in the Hart & Cole Series and honestly I think this author can do no wrong. With every book I read by her I end up having a new favorite. The main characters in the book are Darren and Luisa. They are married but that doesn’t mean they have all the happiness and easyness that every marry should couple have. Oh no no no…. There is betrayal, resentment, distrust but there is also love. They have a lot of work to do if they want to work things out.
The secondary characters are Fantastic and It wouldn’t be right if I didn’t at least mention them and how awesome they are.
I was pulled into this story from page one and I didn’t want it to end. I highly recommend reading this series in order!! I cannot wait to read more by this author and I would recommend this to a friend.
Pandora’s Price by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné Is book 3 in the Hart and Cole series. While I loved the other two books. I have to say this was my favorite of the three. Although a continuation of the characters in book 2. This book developed the characters and their relationship even more. A rollercoaster of emotions doesnt even begin to describe this book. The heartbreaking real life love kept me on the edge of the seat the entire book. I love this author and cant wait to see what comes next. I give this book 5 stars without hesitation!!! A must read!!

Pandora’s Price by Sacha Y. Fortune is the third book in the Hart and Cole series. You do need to read this series in order as each one builds on the story the author has created and reading them out of order would diminish your understanding and enjoyment of them.
This book is just as good and intriguing as the other ones have been. I found myself turning the pages quick as I had to find out what would happen. I connected with the characters easily and really became invested in their story.
This is a very well written and complex book and one I would definitely recommend.
Pandora’s Poison (Hart & Cole Book 2)
By Sacha T.Y. Fortune
Pandora’s Poison by Sacha T.Y. Fortune is the second installment of the Hart & Cole Series. It is a contemporary romance story about Darren and Luisa. Their tumultuous marriage is full of mistrust, jealousy and infidelity. Sacha has written a real-to-life situation that will take you into a journey through this couple’s life and how they cope and interact with the obstacles that are thrown their way. The story is written in an alternating POV which gives you the raw emotion each person is feeling after every scene. This story took me through a roller coaster of feelings and emotions. I also sympathized and related with the characters as a person that dealt with infidelity in her past marriage. There are moments in the story that are so raw that I felt that the story was written about my past marriage. What will happen between Darren and Luisa? I guess I will have to wait until book 3. I highly recommend this book and series, which should be read in order so you can get the back story on the characters. Can’t wait to see what book 3 has in store for Darren and Luisa.
Pandora’s Poison is the 2nd book in the Hart and Cole series by Sacha T Y Fortune. I really loved the first book Climbing The Walls, but this was even better. I would not recommend reading this if you have not read the first book.
Pandora’s Poison centres around Darren and Luisa Hart who we are introduced to in the first book, although Kris and Nicole still play a role in this 2nd book. Darren and Luisa are having marriage troubles and are fighting to save their marriage. Most of their troubles are centred around 2 main areas, Darren’s working relationship with Nicole and also Luisa’s affair with Gianni 4 years previously. Without giving anything away, I’ll say that Gianni’s return causes much angst for both Darren and Luisa.
This book is far from your heart-warming love story. It’s a totally warts and all look at marriage and all the things that put strain on a marriage such as infidelity. As much as I’m a sucker for a heart-warming romance, I loved this dark look at marriage, showing just how hard marriage can be in real life.
Having loved the first two books in this series, I can’t wait for the 3rd book to come out to see what Sacha T Y Fortune has in store for us next.
Pandora’s Poison by Sacha Fortuné
Hart & Cole Book 2
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars
WOW! She did it again!! Sacha is killing me with these books! I loved the second book in this series just as much, if not more than the first book. Again it was a rough start for me but as I kept going the story got more and more intense! I would definitely recommend reading the first book before tackling this one, as it gives insight to the characters in the second book.
In this story we get to see Darren and Luisa’s lives, and how the events in the first book are affecting them as a family and married couple. I love that the story is told in both point of views, this way I can get a feeling for both characters and how they are feeling and what they are thinking.
Luisa makes me so mad. She is irritating and not in control of her feelings. Do you love your husband of 12 years enough to fight for your marriage and try to overcome all the obstacles you have faced together? Would you rather sneak around with the man you had an affair with 4 years ago and ruin any chance at keeping your family together? She goes on and on about how she loves her husband and then when he sticks around even through her infidelity, because he does love her and want to keep his marriage together not only for him but the kids as well, but she continually throws Nicole in his face and then still tries to hide her relationship with Gianni. She doesn’t hide her relationship so much as the relationship is now out in the open, but she keeps their conversations private and to me that is still terrible because of Gianni’s feelings for her.
Darren is not innocent in all of this, but he is still pretty bad off. From the first book we know he is in love with Nicole even though he won’t admit it to himself. It does irritate me that he continually thinks about her and has the nerve to complain about Luisa’s actions. I hated how he kept saying Nicole was the one who ruined his marriage when really it was his own fault as well as Luisa’s and they dragged Nicole and Chris into their mess. In the end Darren gives Gianni a proposition and I am overly excited to see how it all plays out.
Overall this series has been a completely fantastic read. The length of the books kind of threw me off at first but, I promise reading this series all the way through will be totally worth it. I finished this book in 2 days and was devastated when it ended. I will be eagerly awaiting the 3rd book.
