FREEING HER by A.M. Hargrove

(The Hart Brothers #1)
By A.M. Hargrove
ARC Review
Released: August 6, 2014

My rating: 4.5 of 5 ⭐️

"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 was. 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."


Protective Alpha male with dark secrets, cautious herione on the run from her past....

Gabriella never expected her past to catch up with her once again. Having made every effort to cut all ties to keep herself sane and safe, she was to others what no one bothered being to her. But when the cause of her nightmares returned, she found herself alone, still without someone she could trust. Until a stranger she met in a bar offered her more than she had ever thought possible; protection and trust. 

Kolson had long ago separated himself from his family, having built a successfull business all on his own. A solitary man who controlled every aspect of his life very carefully, both in his business dealing and in his private life. Meeting Gabby upset his balance, but lit up his day. She brought out sides to him that had been kept tightly under wraps. Brought joy to his days, but also wore away at the deeply burried secrets he held tight.

An awesome romance with a thrilling suspense arc and enough heat to ward off a cold night, FREEING HER is the first in The Hart Brothers Series. A novel that has does not necessarily have a cliff hanger, but the story is not quite finished yet. So you can easily read this book and walk away without feeling cheated out of a happy ending, but be prepared you won't have all the answers yet. More is to come.

We have brief appearances of previous characters from A.M. Hargrove's books, one I loved particularly, and that made this story even more intriguing for me. There is a tremendous amount of psychological tension that builds during this part of the story and will have to find it's resolution in the next book. I cannot wait to see it all play out! 

✨Haunting, sinister and scalding hot! ✨
