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 bee

Never thought I’d 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 an

I enjoyed the first book in this series so I was looking forward to reading Disavow. I love all things France so I may be partial to the fact that this book is set in France.
I didn't like Pascal in book 1 and to be honest, I have a love/hate relationship with the whole "redeeming" aspect of characters because let's be real here for a second, when you start to really hate a character from the previous book, are you seriously telling me that you're going into the book with an open mind? NOPE! But

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 pe

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, it’s 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 he’s got everythin

"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, I’m a sucker for a happy ending. I’m 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. I’m 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

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.

I love the redemption of a conniving, devious and morally questionable hero, one of my favorite tropes. I also love it when the villain get his!

A nice conclusion to the series.

Disavow is the third book in Karina Halle’s Dumonts series, and it’s my favourite of the series. Although I have enjoyed the entire series, I will be honest and say it’s 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 didn’t quite amaze me as much as it could. However, my

***4 ‘Sprite’ Stars***

Ever since meeting Pascal in Discretion I’ve been fascinated by him and just how he can do all that he does and I gotta say, I thoroughly enjoyed getting inside his head and watching him brought to his knees by his sprite, Gabrielle.

I loved Pascal and Gabrielle. While I was fascinated by Pascal, I didn’t necessarily like him. But watching as Gabrielle gets under his skin and things start to shift in him, well the man that comes out of that experience is one I wouldn’t m

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 w

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

4.5 stars!!!

Each book in this series just got better and BETTER. So of course, Pascal has become my favorite Dumont!!! I was wondering how Karina was going to make me fall for him, especially considering I didn't like him at all in the previous books, but it didn't take me very long at all to love him.

In Disavow, all of my questions were answered. We were introduced to Gabrielle. She was a great heroine and the perfect counterpart for Pascal. By the time I got to the end I was in TEARS because

Disavow is the third book in Dumont trilogy. If you’re a sucker for villains, this is the book for you. It has some darker subjects. It’s 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 couldn’t. 😳 Not a bad conclusion to the series.

I voluntarily read an early copy.

He’s the man I shouldn’t want, the son of the devil. And he’s staring at me like I’m 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, we’ve seen how diabolic Pascal Dumont can be. He’s the absolute worst. While book one (Discretion – Sadie and Olivier) was okay, I couldn’t wait for book two, Seraphine’s and Blaise’s story (Disarm); but it has always been Pascal that has had my interest to

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

Through the series we've seen what a ruthless, heartless piece of work Pascal Dumont can be so how the hell has Karina turned him into one hot, loveable rouge?

Uhm. Karina Halle said she'd make us fall in love with Pascal? How?!

Update: Dammit. How did Karina Halle do it? I literally started reading this book with laser beams shooting from my pupils. I could swear that it would make tiny, burning holes in the back of Pascal's head.

Buuut I genuinely enjoyed Disavow. Boy, he is not perfect by a long shot but if you want a redemption arch, then you got one here. The whole series was one gloriously wicked soap opera with added intrigue from a bunch of rich

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 a

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 it’s Disavow that had the biggest impact on me because I could feel that Pascal's story would be something shocking and mind-changing.

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
