Pandora’s Price (Hart and Cole #3) by Sacha T.Y. Fortune – Review by Sarah Oakes

Pandora's Price (Hart & Cole Book 3)Pandora’s Price by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A great read about marriage. After the events of the last book, Darren and Luisa try to salvage what is left of their marriage. But with a sea of lies and secrets and her lover Gianni still hanging around, perhaps nothing can go back to the way things were. With all this troubled past comes a wedge that drives between Luisa and Darren. Can they put it behind them or is all too late?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns. Well developed characters like Luisa trying to do what makes her happy despite everything or Darren struggling with his feelings. Great cast of supporting characters like the fun loving and supportive Vicki or the kind sweet Kris.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with the scenes in the gala later on full of life and people with vibrant coloured dresses against the walls. Or the colourful décor of Valentines day with reds and pinks against Luisa’s mood contrasting beautifully. I also loved the sense of the everyday with the coffee shop and the kitchen counters with the everyday feel of the dialogue between characters making the sory feel more realistic.
The switch of perspectives worked well to display both sides of the story and was easy to follow with names in chapter titles. I also liked the use of the swimming pool facts which help both Darren and the reader try to keep calm against the events of the narrative. Overall, a great read and I would give it four stars.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give Pandora’s Price (Hart & Cole Book 3) by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné, 4 stars.
*This review may contain spoilers from previous books in the series.*

More secrets exposed. More tempers flare. Can the love between Darren and Luisa survive? Or would they be better spent apart? But that’s not all. Mistakes reappear, and Darren has an event very critical event for his business right in the middle of it all. Not to mention what is going on with family and friends.

If you have been reading this series, you know just how crazy and dysfunctional the characters have been since book one. These books are very dark — there are no perfect little relationships here. All of the characters have gotten so entangled in each other’s lives. It’s not a pretty sight. But there parts that will make you happy, a few may even make you laugh. The story has so many things happening, you will never be bored. It is amazing just how much the author can put into these books. You will be put on an emotional roller coaster the whole way thru.

If you enjoy stories on relationships and just how real — and real crazy — people can be when love and family are involved, you will enjoy this book and series. It may be a little intense for those who generally read light-hearted romance though.

The story Pandora’s Price (Hart & Cole Book 3) by Sacha T.Y. Fortune’ is a wonderful book to read. It is one that drew me in from the beginning and didn’t let me go until the final page. It is a story that had my emotions going up and down the entire time. Those emotions are strongest for the main characters of Luisa and Darren. There is intense dialogue between them and times when I wondered what would happen next. The journey that these two are on have powerful and raw moments. They are two people who face crisis and are trying to find their way. There are times when you can feel the stress, strain, and tension. I could feel for this couple and I was hoping for things to work out. What does the future hold for Darren and Luisa? Read this book to find out. This is the third book in a series and it is recommend reading them in order. It makes for an easier time understanding the continuing storyline and the characters. Recommended reading.

Pandora's Price (Hart & Cole Book 3)Pandora’s Price by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Pandora’s Price is the third book in the Hart & Cole Series by Sacha T.Y Fortuné . Right from the first book Ms. Fortuné had me hooked. It isn’t a ‘sunshine and rainbows’ story that’s for sure, it is a raw and at times a ‘warts and all’ account, which made the story and the characters very real, and entirely believable. This is the continuation of Darren and Luisa’s story.
I really recommend reading the other two books before beginning on this one, because there are recurring characters, shared events, and other relevant details that you should know in order to get the most out of your reading experience. At the very least, you need to read book two before starting this one, as Darren and Luisa’s story continues from book #2.
From the beautiful cover/s, to the multidimensional characters, intricate storyline, and brilliant detailing- this book ticks all the boxes. It takes us on a journey through the inner workings of a marriage- the love, obstacles, insecurities, trust, compromises, forgiveness, doubts, pressures, infidelity, communication, commitment, passion, and pain- which can play an important part in the success or failure of a relationship.
There are intense moments, dramatic details, surprising developments, passionate encounters, believable dialogue, and complex characters who you will want to know more about, and who will draw you into their story and into the rollercoaster ride that is their relationship/s. It was intriguing, emotive and incredibly well written. Can’t wait to read book #4, “Below the Surface” as it looks set to be fantastic!

Thank you, Ms. Fortuné!

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

Pandora's Poison (Hart & Cole Book 2)Pandora’s Poison by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A great read about moving on. Darren and his wife Luisa try to move on from the events of the last book. But it isn’t easy with threats of divorce over their heads. It gets harder when Luisa’s ex lover Gianni returns into the picture. He seems harmless enough at first, simply wanting to get to know Kady But when events escalate and past feelings rear their heads. Can their marriage survive any more troubles?
A great read. Well developed plot. Well developed characters like Luisa trying to do whats best and look after her children or Gianni standing up for himself whilst struggling with his feelings.
However I found Darren too brash to be likeable and struggled to sympathise with his situationso perhaps if this harsh exterior was reduced a little, this would help the reader engage with his character.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel in the sense of the everyday life with the offices and schools and busy streets with a town full of life and people. Or the colourful nature of the orange umbrella against the rain written beautifully.
The switch between perspectives worked well to display both sides of events and was wel written and easy to follow with their names as headings. I also liked the use of dates and times for subtitles in chapters to show how time had passed and things had changed. Also the inclusion of texts and phone call conversations into the narrative was a brilliant addition, adding to the feel of everyday life within the novel. The only issue I would raise is that the flashbacks to meeting Nicole felt out of place and distracted from the narrative of the present situation and tere was some repetition in places. Overall, a great read and I would give it four stars.

Pandora’s Poison (Hart & Cole Book 2)
By: Sacha T. Y. Fortune’
5 out of 5 stars

The story Pandora’s Poison (Hart & Cole Book 2) by Sacha T. Y. Fortune’ is a contemporary romance book. This is a story that drew me in from the very beginning and had me hooked. I found myself getting lost in the pages reading about Darren and Luisa. I enjoyed reading their story. It is moving and makes you wonder what you would do if in their situation. Their lives and marriage are at the very least what you could call complicated. Issues of trust, jealousy, and consequences make up their world. There is emotional and confrontational dialogue/interactions between Darren and Luisa as well as some of the other characters. There are times when I would be puzzled by the actions taken by the characters and wondered what would happen because of them. The story is told from both of this couple’s POV. As you read each of their perspectives you get to know their characters and the challenges that they face. How do Darren and Luisa deal with their emotions and life together? Read this story to find out. This is a book that had my emotions going on an up and down as well as wondering what was going to happen next. It is also a story that I continued to ponder over in my mind long after I had finished reading. This is a series that I would recommend. I can’t wait to read the next book.
