Pearl by Arianne Richmonde ~ Blog Tour

Click the banner above for a complete tour schedule

We loved, loved, loved The Pearl Trilogy and now we get to see how things went down from Alexander's point of view.

 The book that Pearl Series fans have been asking for: the flip side of the tale. The story according to Alexander Chevalier.
At only twenty-five, Alexander Chevalier is a billionaire. His social media site, HookedUp, is more popular than Twitter, more global than Facebook. With his drop-dead gorgeous looks, alluring charm and wealth, he has women falling at his feet, desperate for his attention. But his heart is set on only one woman: Pearl Robinson.
Alexander's dark and dysfunctional past makes him crave stability and a normal relationship, but he soon finds out that Pearl is a bird with a broken wing. Why, he isn't sure.
Pearl, follows Arianne Richmonde's bestselling books in The Pearl Trilogy: Shades of Pearl, Shadows of Pearl and Shimmers of Pearl; the tumultuous and heart-rending love story between forty-year-old documentary producer, Pearl Robinson, and French Internet billionaire, Alexander Chavalier, fifteen years her junior.
Pearl is written from Alexander's point of view from the moment they first meet on a rainy summer's day in a coffee shop in New York City.
In any relationship details are hidden; things are left unsaid.
Not all conversations are remembered in the same way.
And not all actions are disclosed - especially to the one you love most.
This book (Part 1 of 2) is approximately 53,000 words long, just over 200 printed pages. Part 2 is scheduled for release in October.
Because of Alexander Chavalier's prowess in the bedroom, this novel contains erotic content and strong language.
Intended for readers age 18 and over.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*4.5 Stars*

There are two sides to every story and Alexander is telling his side...

A gem... as expected.

What a fantastic story. It was great to see Alexander's side.
I'm always a little apprehensive about books that are told by a different characters' POV because you just never know what you are going to get.
BUT... I didn't need to worry over this one because it was just great. We get to see the story through Alexander's eyes and let me tell you it is not what I was expecting AT ALL. It's so much better. I went completely crazy over Alexander in The Pearl Trilogy and I fell even more crazy in love with him in Pearl. His quirky sense of humor and determination were even more evident this time around. His sister was just as bitchy if not more in this book. And let me tell you a little something about Laura his ex-girlfriend... She is BATSHIT CRAZY!!! Yep totally certifiable in my opinion. So interesting to read. Once again I found myself thinking how interesting it is to see the two sides to the story. Things weren't happening as Pearl thought they were...

I LOVED the fact that Alexander was aware that there was a considerable age difference between them and he still very much wanted to pursue Pearl, it's so refreshing to read a story like that. You don't see that too often and it makes the story so original. Arianne is one heck of storyteller but we already knew that.

You don't necessarily have to read The Pearl Trilogy first, but I suggest that you do because you get a better sense of how things happen in perspective to both stories.

I can't wait to read Part Two of this story and see how the rest of the events unfold.
