“We need each other, baby. We’re both two dysfunctional peas in the same pod. And we won’t be able to dis-function properly without one another, you’ll see. If you try and run away from me, from us, you’ll come back because we’re destined to be together.”
The good: Solid and interesting plot and story line; LOVED Alexandre!; good pacing.
In general: Normally, I analyze the book apart but due to this being an eARC review and the author’s wishes for there to be no spoilers, I will try to do my best in writing a non-spoiler review for all of you readers!
So here we go!
First things first, if you haven’t read the “Pearl Trilogy” and then “Pearl” then I strongly suggest you do so or else you won’t be able to follow along properly.
In “Belle Pearl,” we continue right after where “Pearl” had left off. I won’t spoil whether Laura succeeded in her evil scheme but we do get many answers within the book as to what’s going on in Alexandre’s head and what goes on behind the scenes in many of the scenes from the Pearl Trilogy that we don’t see.
Arianne also goes beyond and gives us readers of an insight of what goes beyond “Shimmers of Pearl,” which is the last book in the Pearl Trilogy, and we see life for Pearl and Alexandre after. I have to say that as the conclusion for this series, it was definitely a roller coaster ride! I was shocked, I was surprised, and I was ultimately floored with the turn of events! It was that interesting and unexpected!!
How will it all end for him and his precious Pearl? Will they ride on into the sunset and have their happily ever after? Read and you will find out!
My thoughts: I absolutely LOVED this book and devoured every minute that I got to be in Alexandre’s head and didn’t want to climb out!
If Arianne were to ever create like a spin off on this series for maybe Sophie or even his niece Elodie I would definitely be down to read any of those as well! Sophie has always sort of interested me with her secret double life; and Elodie, who had more of a story line in Belle Pearl, has made me very intrigued with her future.
Brava, Arianne!! I was very impressed!! And THANK YOU, THANK YOU for entrusting me to receive your eARC for an honest review! It really meant a lot to me! Xoxo.
