Series: The Dumonts #3

In the Dumont fashion empire, no heir has a reputation as decadent, arrogant, and ruthless as that of Pascal Dumont. Every transgression, an indecent pleasure. Every woman, a conquest. And none is more challenging than his new personal assistant, Gabrielle Caron. She’s defiant, alluring, and a mystery Pascal can’t wait to solve.

A former family servant and daughter of the head maid, Gabrielle’s returned as suddenly as she left eight years ago. No longer an awkward teen, the ethereal young beauty has amassed a wealth of resolve. She’ll need it. In hire to the devilishly charming scion, she’s come back for one reason only. And she dare not whisper why.

But as the nights grow more intimate at the Dumont maison, Gabrielle realizes that the last man she believed in is the one man she can trust with her secrets. For Pascal, falling in love means more than his own redemption. It could mean saving Gabrielle’s very life as they confront a dark and scandalous past…together.

"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 good redemption story and I think Karina Halle did a great job with Pascal. He didn't have an easy life, even if he is a heir to the Dumont fashion empire. His father is just pure evil and his mother never showed him any love, so him turning out the way he did was to be expected. He is struggling internally with some of his actions and when he is finally coming face to face with the consequences he needs to decide on which side he's one. Will he follow his father's footsteps or break free like his cousins and brother. I really like anti-heroes so it didn't take me long to warm up to him in this series. I especially loved seeing him question everything after meeting Gabrielle and falling for her. He finally saw a different life he could have, but to get it he would have to make difficult decisions in his life.

"You have me, okay? You have me. This doesn't end here. It continues. I told you that you were mine, and I'm yours too. I'm not backing down. I'm not letting go."

Gabrielle comes from a complete different background and is the daughter of the head maid. She didn't have an easy life and after very horrific and traumatic incidents she leaves and doesn't come back for years. Why did she come back now? You'll have to read the book to find out. I really liked her character and I loved how fierce she was. She came back stronger than ever, but was still dealing with her trauma. The interaction between Pascal and Gabrielle was sensual and she didn't back down to him. I loved how their relationship progressed and I think they were a great fit with amazing chemistry. Pascal for the first time in his life felt like he was worth being loved. This being the last book in the series I was looking forward to the confrontation with Gautier (father of Pascal and villain of the series), which we have been moving closer to from the beginning of the series. I was expecting a bit more suspense in this book. Also there was one incident that I found unbelievable but I am not an expert so maybe it is possible, but I am not so sure (sorry for being vague, you'll know which scene I am talking about when you get to it). Overall this was a very satisfying conclusion to the series. I especially loved the epilogue which showed the whole family together. I am definitely going to miss these amazing characters.
