I read The Pearl Trilogy and absolutely LOVED it. The Pearl Trilogy was written from the heroine's, Pearl, point of view. Arainne Richmonde decided to release this series from the hero's, Alexandra, point of view, and Pearl is the first installment of this two part story. This is the first time I've read a story that was re-told from the other main character's point of view. It was very interesting learning Alexandre's thoughts and feelings. This book grabbed me every bit as much as the books in The Pearl Trilogy. I loved hearing Alexandre's sexy thoughts and I felt it brought so much more sensuality to an already erotic read. We learned many more facts about him: how he became the man that he is, how all the other woman in his life acted and treated him and how much Pearl meant to him and why he fell so hard for her. I fell in love with him even more, because I KNEW what was on his mind. I have to say that Alexandre is one SEXY well-endowed man and he knows how to pleasure a woman. He goes beyond the normal to make sure she is pleasured in many ways before he takes his own release. This book is definitely a scorcher!
The ending left me anxious to find out how Alexandre is going to deal with all the woman who can't seem to get it through their thick skulls that he is spoken for. I'm happy that the wait for part two in this series won't be too long. It should be released sometime in October 2013.
If you love your erotic romances with an older heroine and a sexy younger male hero, with a REALLY good story line, fantastic characters, twists and turns to keep your interest, then I HIGHLY recommend you read these books.
Book 1 ~ Shades of Pearl
Book 2 ~ Shadows of Pearl
Book 3 ~ Shimmers of Pearl
Or, you can also buy The Pearl Trilogy, the entire series in one book. When you're done and find yourself wanting more like me, make sure you check out Pearl, part 1 of Alexandre's point of view. I guarantee that he will heat you up as much as he did me...YUM!
Alexandre is young, gorgeous and wealthy and isn't really looking for a relationship. Though he starts singing a different tune when he meets the beautiful and sweet Pearl at a coffee shop. Sparks fly immediately and their love story begins. Oh yeah, did I mention that Alexandre is 25 years old and Pearl is 40? The way Alexandre describes her, she looks barely 30 and is absolutely stunning. I mentioned in my review of The Pearl Trilogy how I loved how Richmonde wrote a story about a younger man and an older woman...it was quite refreshing to say the least :)
Alexandre is not only charming but he is the epitome of a true gentleman. Due to Richmonde's wonderful writing, I was able to see and feel just how much Alexandre loves and respects Pearl. Remembering what Pearl was thinking and feeling as well (from The Pearl Trilogy) made for a wonderful and exciting read. I honestly read this book in one sitting. I truly could not put it down.
Alexandre learned at an early age how a man should always treat a woman with the utmost respect. The only problem he has currently, is treating his sister with that same respect. She pushes him past his limits throughout the story and it was wonderful to see how he finally comes to blows with her. I have to say, I was pretty proud of him. But his sister is the LEAST of his concerns considering all the turmoil he has to deal with. No worries, I won't be given any spoilers away ;)
Should I even go into the hot and steamy sex scenes??? Umm...YES!!! I was absolutely melting while reading about all the wicked wicked things Alexandre was thinking and doing to Pearl. WOW!!!
So...I guess you can gather by my review that Pearl is a book that everyone should definitely read. I would suggest reading The Pearl Trilogy first but it is not a necessity. Trust me though, it really made for a more intense story knowing what Pearl was thinking and feeling while reading all the emotions that Alexandre was feeling. I came to realize that the two of them are just about perfect for one another. Oh and by the way....Richmonde leaves you waiting with bated breath for the second part of Pearl to be released! She is killing me....in a good way though ;)
Enjoy...I know I did!
