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

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.

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.

Pandora’s Poison is the page turning, second book in the Hart and Cole series. I really enjoyed the second installment in this series, even more than Climbing the Walls. I would recommend reading these books in order to get a full picture of the storyline and to get to know the characters in depth. This series has done an excellent job drawing me in and showing the complexities of adult relationships.
Without ruining the story at all it’s difficult to write a review that does this story justice. The characters are raw and real and the story has so much emotion behind it. I’m truly looking forward to reading on in the series. Pandora’s Poison is definitely a 5 star read and the Hart & Cole series is definitely something you won’t want to miss out on.

Pandora’s Poison, Hart and Cole Book 2, by Sacha T. Y. Fortune

5-Stars

Pandora’s Poison is an amazing addition to the Hart and Cole series. It can be read as a standalone but I do recommend reading the first book to have background on several supporting characters. I loved Darren, Luisa, and Gianni. They were all very interesting and had great personalities. The storyline was easy to follow and I literally could not put this novel down. I also had a hard time picking a favorite between Darren and Luisa. They were both amazing in their own way and dedicated to their family even if one had not spent as much time with the kids before. Luisa really is a supermom and I loved reading all the things she has balanced to take care of her family and hide her little secret. Sacha Fortúne has done a magnificent job with this book and I can’t wait to read more in this series.

Pandora’s Poison (Hart & Cole Book 2) by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné is the second book in the series, and I couldn’t put it down. I would definitely recommend reading them in order and not as a stand alone, because it can be confusing. Much like the first book, the characters were very much like friends you want to spend time with and I fell in love with them. The ups and downs and roller coaster of emotion kept me tied to this book until I was finished. I have a feeling this is gonna be a series that makes me sad when it’s over, because I will miss the characters. Even before this series I was in a rut, having finished a great series. Although, this is a new author for me, I absolutely love this series and cannot wait to read what happens next. I easily give this book another 5 stars, and I can’t wait to read the next book!

Pandora’s Poison (Hart and Cole Book 2) by Sacha T.Y.Fortune’ is the second book in her Hart and Cole Series. This is a continuation of the first book so I recommend reading it first if you haven’t already. In this book we get to Darren and Luisa’s story. This story is about these two and the struggles with their marriage and everything else life is throwing at them, choices and trust. I felt like I was on an emotional rollercoaster ride at times. I had a hard time putting this down once I started reading, I had to know what happens next. With everything that has happened, can they trust again? This is an amazingly written story, a must read! I absolutely can’t wait for the next book in this series.

Wow, can these books leave you feeling anymore emotional. I thought Book 1 in the Hart & Cole Series, Climbing The Walls, was emotional but Pandora’s Poison brought on a whole new level. For a better idea of the story and the characters I highly recommend that you read Book 1 first as it will help you completely understand our main characters, Darren & Luisa’s, back story.

This book was once again raw & real and made you completely and utterly captivated from the start, you couldn’t put this book down until the very end. Then even when you have finished the read, it sticks with you for hours later, that’s how you know your emotionally invested in a book, and that you have found an epic read! This author has continued to blow me away with her incredible jam-packed story line, in-depth real, relatable & raw characters that each stand strong on their own and even better together.

I can’t wait to delve into Book 3 Pandora’s Price, just to see how far our characters journeys will go!

This is a book that shouldn’t be missed!
This is a series that cannot be missed!

Lord I hate and love this story. It’s sad and beautiful and a big mess. Luisa isn’t a character to like. She has made so many mistakes but Lord she is human. This second book has us in deep. I can’t seem to pick a side most times. Darren is just wow to me. The courage it took to man up the way he did. I am crushed for him. I also feel bad for Luisa but not as much. Most men wouldn’t react the way he did. I hate how life can be so messy. The author really dig deep to write this story. To feel the pain and anguish these characters feel. To know that at any moment it can all come crashing down. I don’t know what happiness is right now after finishing this story. I’m in shock and I need the next book because I need to know.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Pandora’s Poison (Hart & Cole Book 2) by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné ​is enthralling and compelling. Trust me when I say reading the first in this series before reading this one is a must, otherwise you are missing out on the necessary backstory of the characters that carry over in this story. The characters are complex and their relationship is a little dark and getting into their minds as the story is told in multiple POV’s adds another layer to the intricately woven story. It shows a relationship at its worst. It shows their journey through love and hate, trust and doubts, pain and passion. When is it time to say enough is enough? When is it time to stop torturing each other? I admit I enjoyed this book more than I did the first, even though I enjoyed it. Sacha is good at writing such raw emotions that are equally intense and passionate that draw you in and leave you exhausted as you are encapsulated into their world and relationship. I won’t tell you any of the story as it is one that has to be read without reveal.   I am intrigued to see what we get in book three.
