BOOK SERIES REVIEW: The Pearl Trilogy (The Pearl Trilogy #1-3) by Arianne Richmonde
"The Pearl Trilogy" gives women in their forties (as well as any group age) who've lost all hope in finding love some light. It doesn't matter what age you are, you can still attain a great catch like sexy French business mogul, Alexandre Chevalier.
I loved the dynamics between Pearl and Alexandre since they are so different as night and day. Pearl is so posh and reserved whereas Alexandre is mature for his age but is also very dominant and alpha male when it comes to Pearl.
Reading this, I thought the big nemesis was this one person but in the end it was another. I figured with Pearl's presence in Alexandre's life that there would cause tensions and jealousies but by book three I never figured that Alexandre's past love could be so complicated. I literally wanted to slap Laura (who is she? well, you have to read to find out!).
As for the plot and it's pacing: everything well flowed and was great.
My main complaint was how the situation with the antagonist was solved. I mean, be reasonable. I can't see that happening just so that our heroine's can have their happily ever after. To me, that was a bit unethical and sloppy.
BUT, other than that no further complaints!!
Gah, I want to read "Pearl, Alexandre's Story" so bad now!! I love him!! He's one of my book boyfriends. Hehe. <3
