Pandora’s Poison (Hart & Cole book 2) by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné – Review by Liz Vrchota

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

I must preface this review with my absolute warning that you can’t truly appreciate this novel for all its glory if you haven’t read the first book in the Hart & Cole series, Climbing The Walls. Now here is why… Have you ever wanted to know what was going on in the minds of your friends or neighbors that were falling apart or going through a difficult time? (Or heck let’s just be honest, we can all be a bit snoopy sometimes and just want to know the juicy details because our lives get boring right?) Well Sacha T.Y. Fortune gives you a front row seat to this in her Hart and Cole books. Climbing The Walls hooked me and I have been addicted since. That was a debut novel!!

Fortune can really pour emotion onto a page, I felt it drip off the words as I read them, and often was right there with the characters. I loved every moment from the good to the bad and back again. Of course things continue to be interesting and there are more twists and turns than I had anticipated yet. I am highly anticipating book three, Pandora’s Price! I know I will be first in line to add it to my collection! Thanks for another great escape Ms. Fortune!

Pandora’s Poison (Hart & Cole Series, #2) by Sacha T.Y. Fortune – Review by Michelle Austin

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

Pandora’s Poison was a great 5 star read and book two in the Hart & Cole series.
I was so excited to get my hands on this book and I wasn’t disappointed.

We continue the story from book one, which I highly suggest you read first.
Darren and Luisa are working on some serious problems. Darren is trying to keep his family together but Luisa just isn’t convinced they can make it work. She has to make some choices that could help her in the long run but will they be the right ones?

Can they make things work or will they end up in divorce?

We get different POV’s which brings you into the story even more, you feel the emotions that they are each having. We see a lot more of Luisa in this book and we get some answers to her actions that caused their problems. Is Darren really the victim?

I really liked both characters although Darren at times rubbed me the wrong way, especially with the way he would talk to Luisa. My emotions were all over the place once again. Sacha T. Y. Fortuné pulled me right in and now I can’t wait for the next book in the series. Overall this is a great series that I highly suggest.

Pandora’s Poison (Hart & Cole Book 2)
By Sacha T. Y. Fortune

Pandora’s Poison Hart and Cole book two by Sacha T.Y. Fortune. I really recommend that you read book one Climbing the Walls before you read this book. I enjoy reading books that contain POV and that’s what you will get with this book. The storyline In Pandoras Poison is just as good as Climbing the Walls. When reading this book, you very may well ask yourself how the relationship between Darren and Luisa work when their lives are complicated with lies and trust issues. Pandoras Poison may have you on somewhat of an emotional roller coaster. There is nothing to dislike about this book and I am pretty sure you are going to enjoy book 2 in this series.

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

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.

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

 

I remember when I read the first book in this series I thought this author is going to be brilliant and I was right! I loved the first book, which was the author’s debut novel, but this one was just outstanding. I was hypnotised by the authors words, so much so that once I started reading life around me couldn’t continue until I had finished! This is a continuation of the first book so it should be read after book 1. The story flowed so well and was effortless to read.
Darren and Luisa had a story that was so detailed and complex that I was completely absorbed by it. I loved that it was told from both sides as well as I felt like I was able to understand them both so much better.
I am so, so excited for book 3, I literally cannot wait to get my hands on it – I have this feeling that it is going to be an amazing read!!!

5+++++++ Stars

**Sigh**

Climbing the Walls was absolutely one of my favorite books of 2018 and this…Part 2 I can promise when 2019 ends Pandora’s Poison will be still one of my favorites for the year and I haven’t even gotten to part 3 yet….

This author has a way with her writing and the word that comes to mind first is hypnotizing, mesmerizing…I don’t know how she does it but every word draws me in and I just can not put it down. My first warning to you is…Do not even try picking this book up without first reading Climbing The Walls…It wont work, you don’t have the whole story and won’t be able to form a complete picture of what Darren and Luisa’s story is all about.

I loved this…I loved getting inside Darren and Luisa’s minds, and I’m so thankful this author gave us that opportunity instead of just getting one of them. Everything felt so so real, it isn’t a storybook it is a real life book where no matter what you have experienced in your life you can actually feel the emotions seeping in, and that is what I’ve come to realize with this author, when I pick her books up I need to be prepared to face reality and feel the emotions because that’s what she gives me.

Im completely invested in these people, all of them and can not even predict what is going to happen in Book 3, I have a feeling there will be a couple more POV’s involved and Im praying that some things Im worried about do not happen…I finish these books a complete mess and having books touch me in that way make for some of my favorites to date…I said this after reading Climbing The Walls and my thoughts haven’t changed…I will have this series sitting on my bookshelf and know that I will be reading them over and over again….

I don’t have to say how much I’m looking forward to reading Pandora’s Price even if the title scares me a bit I will be the first in line to open this book.

**Sigh**

Darren forgave his wife – or tried to – years ago, but surviving the affair… even raising her lover’s child as his own… is an entirely different concept than actually having to deal with the man pushing his way back into their lives to seek his rightful place with the daughter he never knew…

…If that really is all that Gianni wants…

Luisa felt it the moment she finally met the formidable Nicole – the woman who had always crawled under her skin, long before she herself developed a dangerous attraction for a less complicated man than the granite bastard she married.

But, as this beautiful man once told her: there is always a choice…

Told from both points of view, “Pandora’s Poison” explores the forces that tear a marriage apart – infidelity, insecurity, and doubt… and brings to the fore the question faced in one’s darkest hour: Can you trust yourself?

Book 2 ends at Darren’s & Luisa’s turning point, and the rest of their story will be revealed in Book 3 “Pandora’s Price” (coming March 31, 2019).

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. Fortune

Climbing the Walls is book one in the Hart and Cole series. I have to admit since I enjoyed this book, I did do a search for any other books by this author and found nothing. So, I am assuming this is Sacha’s debut book. If this is the case, then I would say we are in for an awesome series. Also make sure you have plenty of time to read Climbing the Walls as you are not going to want to put it once you have started. If you are like me this book is likely to take you on an emotional roller coaster of a ride, but a ride you are going to love, trust me. Personally, I think you are going to absolutely love the main characters, they have their own strengths, but they also have their own flaws as well. So, all I can say is grab this book and have a read, I promise you will not be disappointed. Well done Sacha a brilliant start to the series.

5 OMG, deserves so many more Stars
***********************
I finished this masterpiece yesterday evening, I read the whole book yesterday, I just couldn’t stop, I needed to stop to do normal everyday life things but ended up not doing the laundry that needed to be done and having to explain to the hubby that dinner was whatever he found in the fridge because I was a total and complete wreck during this book and for about an hour afterwards. So now here I sit trying to figure out a way to put down in words just what I thought of this story!

When I first decided to read it it was the cover that drew me in, then it was the reviews that were already coming in, then it was the words this author so brilliantly wove together…I can honestly and truthfully with no doubts say that I’ve got many favorites for this year so far but this one went right to the top of that list in record speed. I was scared when I saw how long the book was and normally I would end up doing some skimming but that did not happen, I savored every single word, every single emotion, every single thought and action that took place within the pages of this story. There were parts I didn’t like but those parts made up the whole of the book and without them it wouldn’t have felt as real.

There is no way to sum up this story because it would be like summing up everyday life and that’s just not possible…This author took me on a journey through real life and everything that comes with that. I am just in awe at how perfectly everything just worked and I truly felt every single word..My heart hurt, I smiled, I got so angry I wanted to hit something, I cried and I forgave things I never thought I would, I have become completely and totally emotionally invested in these people..All of them and I want more, I can not wait for the next part.

This is one of those stories that having it sit on your kindle is just not enough, I will wait for the series to end and have the entire collection on my bookshelf where my all time favorites live.

Phenomenal!! Brilliant!!
