Freeing Her (A Hart Brothers Novel, Book 1) * This novel contains mature content and it not intended for younger readers. This is the beginning of a story ... the story of two people who were meant to be together. Why? Because unknown to them, they shared terrifying pasts and the cruel circumstances of their births doomed both of them to a life of hell. Two strangers ... one night ... one accidental meeting that changed their lives forever. Gabriella Martinelli, Manhattan psychiatrist had only one goal in life—to help abuse victims avoid the horrors she’d experienced herself. She worked late, volunteered, and donated her services to anyone who needed them. Life was good ... until her nightmare resurfaced. He found her, and began stalking her, and she knew he wouldn’t stop until he destroyed every ragged piece of her. Kolson Hart, Manhattan’s most eligible bachelor, was ruled by his dark past. He liked control, from the boardroom to the bedroom and didn’t care to be involved with someone whose life was just as screwed up as his. But one look at Gabriella short-circuited everything. Want ... desire ... need ... will sometimes drive a man to do things he swore he never would. He freed her from a life of fear ... when he couldn’t even save himself. All four books of the Hart Brothers series are now available: Freeing Him, Kestrel, and The Fall and Rise of Kade Hart.
The story is very good, for the most part. It is not good enough to purchase the following books, but I finished it and that is saying something. The awful use of slang in the book was almost my undoing. Peeps, jelly (for jealous of your twelve) are just a few. Can't handle it. Luckily the awful attempt at slang was limited. The way this author used those words reminded me of how my 75 yo mom would sound saying that stuff.
The story is full of strife for the main characters but it's impossible not to love them. The editing was a little rough and there wasn't a distinct change in dialog so you sometimes weren't sure who you were reading.
It wasn't so bad tho that it tuned me off the book. Really, this was great. I could not put it down!
Read it. You won't be sorry.
Once again I will be waiting impatiently for the next book to find out what becomes of these characters the author makes you fall in love with. Can barely wait to know what secrets Kolson keeps.
