Karina Halle ended The Dumonts series with a bang. Disavow is one of those books I was looking forward to, but was also a little nervous to read it. Pascal Dumont has not been a likable character throughout this series, but I should have known Karina could pull it off. She gave us the most delectable antihero with Pascal, and a strong and brave heroine with Gabrielle.

Gabrielle's mother is the maid for the Dumont household. Gabrielle lived there when she was a teenager, but she's been

Never thought Id see the day that Karina Halle would make us fall in love with Pascal Dumont but that has happened! If you read the previous books in this series, I am sure you know Pascal was not the best of men. He was infamous like his father. Or is he? Will he finally open his eyes if the right woman appears in his life? If you want to find out, you have to read the conclusion of this scandalous and

3.5! I liked this one the most of the series. I was so curious about how Karina Halle would redeem Pascal and I think she did a good job! I just didn't fall in love with the story overall.

Book 3. Pascal. After the last two books we kind of thought he would always stay the bad guy. But now he's getting his chance for his own happily ever after.
And I loved it! I loved getting a look inside his head and his heart.

Gabrielle used to live in the Dumont mansion years ago - as the daughter of the maid. But bad things happened with Pascal's father and eight years ago she was finally able to run away.

But now she's back. And she's out for justice and revenge. And help comes from the last
4 stars!

The final book in The Dumonts trilogy, and Karina Halle has pulled off the almost impossible by taking series bad guy, Pascal, and not only redeeming him, but making me fall in mad love with him. A fantastic story of overcoming your past, with a gorgeous romance that left me swooning, its a great finish to the series, and I loved it!

For the last two books we have seen Pascal Dumont plot and scheme with his evil father to take over the family fashion dynasty. Well, now hes got everything

"Money is our legacy. Greed is our strength. And getting what I want is where I really shine."

Disavow is the last book in The Dumonts series, and one I have been anticipating since I finished the previous book. I have had a love/hate relationship with Pascal since I met him in the first book Discretion. He definitely wasn't likable back then, but he kind of grew on me in the second book Disarm after I got to know him better. I love a

4.5 STARS!

Disavow, the final installment to The Dumont series by Karina Halle was wickedly thrilling, sexy, and truly the perfect ending to this lavish story!

Gabrielle and her mother came to the Dumont estate when she was just a young girl. As the years past she soon became Gautier's personal maid. Though he was a predator who he hurt and abused her, she managed to escape when she was eighteen. Eight years later, Gabrielle is back in Paris and she wants revenge.

Listen, Im a sucker for a happy ending. Im a sucker for a villain turned hero. They are my vices and Disavow gave me both.

Pascal was redeemed. His actions, his affection towards the heroine, and the epilogue sold me. Im here for it all.

I liked the heroine. She endured a lot, and I completely got her need for revenge. She is definitely someone who deserved an HEA.

The story moves pretty quickly. I enjoyed them as a couple, the steam factory was there, and we get some
4 1/2 "Redemptive" Stars!!

Oh Ms. Halle!! I really didn't think you could do it but you made me like Pascal!! I thought there was no way you could redeem him for me....but you worked your magic and bam!!

Pascal had done horrible things in the books prior to this. It always appeared that he enjoyed being his father's accomplice ....let's just say all was not as it appeared. Pascal really does have a heart and it takes a beautiful woman named Gabrielle to help him discover that it still beats.

Definitely my favorite of the series. I have a weakness for antiheroes and Pascal is for sure one! I loved him and Gabrielle, they truly healed each other and helped each other move on from their demons

Disclaimer: I received an Advance Reader Copy at no cost from the publisher/author. All opinions in my review are my own.

I was a little nervous going into this book. Throughout this series, Pascal has done things to warrant the reader to greatly dislike him. I admit that I did dislike him in the previous books. I didn't know how well I would perceive him in this book but Karina Halle writes a good redemption story. I went from disliking him to rooting for him.

I've really enjoyed the characters

Disavow is the third book in Dumont trilogy. If youre a sucker for villains, this is the book for you. It has some darker subjects. Its a little addicting at times. There is some suspense in it that made my tummy have all kinds of reactions. I wanted to look away, but I couldnt. 😳 Not a bad conclusion to the series.

I voluntarily read an early copy.

Disavow is the third book in Karina Halles Dumonts series, and its my favourite of the series. Although I have enjoyed the entire series, I will be honest and say its not a favourite from the author. Each book made for addictive reding but Disavow was the only book that really made me say wow.

In truth, I was a wee bit nervous about this one. I was unsure if I could be won over by our male lead and was ready for another enjoyable book that didnt quite amaze me as much as it could. However, my

Hes the man I shouldnt want, the son of the devil. And hes staring at me like Im the only woman in the world for him, the only one he really, truly needs. Salvation, maybe. Whatever it is, I want more. I want all of him.

For two books now, weve seen how diabolic Pascal Dumont can be. Hes the absolute worst. While book one (Discretion Sadie and Olivier) was okay, I couldnt wait for book two, Seraphines and Blaises story (Disarm); but it has always been Pascal that has had my interest totally

First of all, let me say that I'm sad that this trilogy is over. I started reading it last summer when Discretion came out and it's followed to 2020. I couldn't wait to find out what would happen to everyone, especially the evil Gautier. And I wanted to know how the author would redeem Pascal, since he always acted like he was going to be brutal as his father and he did some despicable things (although not as disgusting as what his father did).

Well, I am sold, and I think there wasn't a better
3.7 Stars

Disavow brings the conclusion of the Dumont family story with Pascal, a character who in previous books proved to be as villainous as his father. So I was curious to see if this character would have redemption, and I think the author managed to make me cheer and even like him in the end. A good job.

The story of Pascal and Gabrielle is full of secrets, suspense, revelations and romance. A book that caught my attention from that Prologue that broke my heart to the last pages.Pascal is a

Your name doesnt dictate what you do or dont do. Your will does.

It's hard for me to say goodbye to the Dumonts series, but I'm doing it with a grin on my face, because Karina Halle left the best for last! Don't get me wrong, I love all the parts in this trilogy, but its Disavow that had the biggest impact on me because I could feel that Pascal's story would be something shocking and mind-changing. From the first book in the series we knew him as an anti-hero, whose moral backbone left much to

What an amazing, intense and fitting ending to The Dumont Saga by Karina Halle. As if she saved the best for the last. This story pulled at my heartstrings and pushed me to the edge of emotional breakdown. Disavow is a perfect balance of sultry, suspenseful, heartbreaking and swoonworthy!

Pascal Dumont has been portrayed like a bad boy with evil intentions like his father all along but at the end of last book I could feel he has a lot more hiding under this dark aura. After "death" of his uncle

After watching Pascal weave his danger in Discretion and Disarm, I was more than a little curious to see how Karina Halle would redeem him. We saw some hints at the end of Disarm that made us think he wasn't as awful as he appeared--as he wanted to appear--but nevertheless, he is someone we don't really like.

From the opening pages of this book, I became intrigued, and I found myself on his side. Pascal shares his thoughts and feelings with you, letting you see what he really thinks about his
Oh, Pascal, you evil Frenchman! You conquered me body and soul. This story is superb. And the best of the series in terms of drama and fulfillment. Wow.

A corrupt, lavish fashion dynasty in France, more secrets than a lost civilization, bad deeds to overflow Hell, and one villain to hate until he becomes the dark hero to right all the wrongs.

Beautiful redemption tale, the third and last in the Dumont empire series, it is full of tragedy, exciting romance, and a love that pushes the characters to

Disavow is the final book of The Dumont series and honestly, this one was my favorite out of the three. Pascal was always painted as the villain, a bad boy and exactly the same of his father, but he is so much more than that.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Disavow by Karina Halle is book Three in The Dumonts Seires. This is the story of Gabrielle Caron and Pascal Dumont. I have read the previous books, which did add to my enjoyment of this one. I have been waiting to see how they would play out Pascal who hasn't been so nice. I do think you could make this a standalone book but this is such a good series you might just want to read them in order. Gabrielle was once the daughter of the maid for the Dumont house hold. But when she was a teenager she ...more

If you have read the previous books in the series than the one thing that you do know is that Pascal is the man you love to hate. He is determined to achieve his goals and he has no regard for what he has to do or who gets caught in the crossfire whether you be friend, family or foe until a woman from his past will have him questioning everything.

Not only did Gabrielles mother work for the Dumont but they lived there as well. At her first opportunity she left and was determined to leave the

If someone checks my GR profile, they will find a (short) list of my 5 pet peeves. Number two is the following:

2. Sleeping with other people. I don't want to read about one of the MCs having sex with a person who is not the other MC.

Somewhere in this book, Pascal makes Gabrielle find a restaurant to take his date to and find out her name. After the date, he brings the other woman home and fucks her while she is leaning on the window and he hopes that Gabrielle is watching because he wanted to

Wowwwww this was a quick read with so much secrets, suspense and steamy chemistry. Pascal was intriguing from all the other books and so evil so I was waiting to see what his story would have been about. Gabrielle was the maids daughter that had returned and Pascal was intrigued by her. She clearly didnt put up with his bs but there was something about her that he just couldnt put together. Gabrielle had an agenda and it didnt include falling in love with Pascal. Pascal also didnt expect to fall ...more

Pascal was the perfect villain in the first 2 books so when I heard that the 3rd book was about him I was not only curious to see who his love interest would be but how Ms Halle could pull off his transformation

This book started off with a band and Ms Halle had me immediately wondering how Gabrielle and Pascal would survive Gabrielles truth about her past.

Needless to say I was cheering for this couple and was so happy that Pascal found his redemption and true love in Gabrielle.
