[Reading] ➷ Kestrel (Hart Brothers, #3) Author A.M. Hargrove – Peakpopa.info

Kestrel (Hart Brothers, #3) A gifted copy was provided by NETGALLEY my honest review This was not a good book I could barely finish it The Female MC was left this huge home and lots of cash , has a great job but has to take a mortgage to pay for the house Seriously Ook, then she jumped all over the main male MC whose interested in buying the house and offers her body for sex in exchange for him keeping her dead daughter s room EXACTLY the same way do you get me on this Creepy The story just got weirder and weirder from there And from there, the plot got even stranger yes there was sex involved between the MCs but the absurdness of the plot made me just not like this story I would not recommend this story I would be willing to read this author again but not this story My rating 2.0 The good thing about Kestrel by A.M Hargrove, is that even though it is the third in the series, it definitely can be read as a stand alone.However, that may be the only thing I found good about this book.I m giving it one star because I actually made it to the end I think only to see how the train wreck ended This feels so harsh, but it was just such a mess.It starts fine enough, young woman has lost her entire family She s broken and broke You learn that she s in cancer research but the taxes on the house she inherited are breaking her But then all of this happens The money situation never really mapped out for me She was left 100K, I assume she makes decent money, but the taxes nearly bankrupt her within 4 years But, I don t live in Charleston This could be totally legit, it definitely made me pause and do some math Not something I want to do while reading.Anyway then she throws herself at the potential buyer of the house I m talking, indecent proposal shit here It was all kinds of strange She s a nerd, not a sex pot so it really felt out of character I get it, you re desperate to have access to the house but offering up your mom jean clad ass to a complete stranger is crazy town territory.Kestrel awesome name that s why it got an extra half star kept telling her he was so bad and evil but his actions never supported that Ever He was actually a very sweet guy All his talk about his dark past, was just that, talk.I could make a huge list of inconsistencies, but I won t I ll just say it was full of them and I struggled A lot.Not the book for me.1.5 Stars Kestrel A Hart

Holy Sh t Yourself Balls was this a good book I wish I knew about this series and read the first two books about Kolston and Gabby, but you get pretty much all of the recap about them in this book, so I ll pass This is an amazing I mean AMAZING book I laughed my ass off, cried times than I can count all over just one subject matter..you ll figure out what it is in the first few pages , and was breaking out in a sweat over the HOT SEX all over this book I love me some good smutty sex, but this was off the charts AND, this book is a book that really has huge development From where this book starts to where it ends It kind of blew me away Not too many books I can think of go so far from right to left Anyway, I highly recommend this book I love discovering a good new author, and Mrs Hargrove does not disappoint I can not WAIT to read the final book on Kade Just reading that excerpt on the next book has my kindle feigning to get its fingers on it ARC provided by Netgalley So far Kestrel is the Hart man for me His book was full of passion and intrigue from the very first pageHOT HOT HOT 4.5 passionately amazing starsFull review to be written soon DNF at 68%.Wow, just WOW That was a BAD book.EVERY SINGLE PERSON in this series is just completely screwed up.I mean Gabby and Kolson were bad and Kestrel was close behind but Carter She was the worst character so far I get it, losing your child is horrible and probably the worst thing ever but building your dead child a shrine in your house is probably not really healthy but then Carter has to sell the house but wants to keep her dead daughters old room, so she tries to seduce the buyer with sex in order to be allowed to visit this room Sorry but WHAT This girls needs a very good therapist and new friends because hers just SUCK Carter is a very, very smart woman which is mentioned so often but is kind of hard to believe because view spoiler she ends up unwanted pregnant TWICE hide spoiler Kestrel is on the mend after living under his late father s abuse and control Although he has the love and support of family He needs to be on his own He grabs at the opportunity to open up a new division of his brother s company It is just what he needs to focus on rebuilding his life While taking a tour of a house he is interested in buying he meets Carter, who happens to own the house He is completely shocked to see such a beautiful woman hiding behind clothes that shouldn t be allowed in this decade He is even shocked at a proposal she makes to him She isn t his type at all but yet, there is something about her that pulls him He takes her under his wing and is able to bring out the person she was They develop an unlikely friendship and quickly the lines between that friendship begin to blur Once they give into their temptation for one another, there is no looking back They have found what they each craved in each other Unfortunately their happiness is short lived and an unexpected danger threatens their future Kestrel has fought his demons for too long and will not lose another person to evil He will do everything he can to protect the ones he loves My heart just broke for Kestrel Neglected of touch and human contact as a child, he craves touch like we need the air to breathe The last thing he wanted to a relationship but Carter came into his life and then everything changed.Kestrel is amazing He is gorgeous, caring and scared He was able to overcome his demons with the help of Carter.Carter suffered a loss that not many people recover from She tries to move on with her life but instead of living it, she hides behind her frumpy clothes and her research When Kestrel buys her home, she is devastated and just can t let go You know that saying desperate times call for desperate measures She is broken and Kestrel helps her to be the person she was before her loss Even though they are both broken, I loved how together they were slowly able to piece each other back up It wasn t planned or expected A heart achingly beautiful story of overcoming your demons, understanding it is ok to let go of the past so that you can embrace the future.A.M did a wonderful job I can t wait to see what she has coming next Ahhhh KestrelI really enjoyed getting to know him He was nothing like I expected After the few times we met him in Freeing Her and Freeing Him, I had a whole different notion of who he wasBUTwith all of the events prior, Kestrel had a chance to really shine even Kestrel had so much to still get over and allowing someone to get close just wasn t in the cards for him..and then he meets CarterCarter is such a quirky and brilliantly smart girland I know I laughed so many times throughout this bookBut most of that was to cover up the devastating hurt that has altered her lifeI can t go in to detailsyou must discover all of this on your own..BUTthis is an awesome book with a great budding romance for two people with pasts that had them believing that they may never have the happily ever after..Do they actually get it HA I am not going to tellbut an amazingly captivating tale that enthralls you from start to finishA definite must read It s time to discover Kestrel s story The mysterious middle child One that is lured in with touch, one that stood by the monster s side, but not out of loyalty Now that the Dragon is gone, Kestrel is left trying to create a new life for himself all while struggling with the choices he made out of fear and the abuse he suffered that was beyond his control When he moves to South Carolina, he didn t expect the mousy woman who throws herself at his feet to wind him up quite like she has Carter has lost everything The only thing left in her life that makes it worth living is her drive as she works in her lab, trying to discover a cure to save lives, burdened by the fact that she could not save the ones that mattered the most Knowing she has to sell her family s home, she tries to strike a deal, unable to give up the sanctuary the home holds within the walls of her daughter s room But this isn t lust at first sight, this is a man who gives into a whim and discovers he s getting so much than just a new house out of the deal.We already knew K s life was going to be fucked up But I loved that once he saw Carter for than just a nerdy, unkempt disaster he gave in completely I am a huge fan for when a hard ass hero falls head over heels in love and becomes mush for her, while not losing his edge anywhere else I think Kestrel is my favorite of the brothers so far Although we got a lot of Kolson between his two books I adored Kestrel and this story a tad bit.
