Twinsie Brenda is SOOO excited for this book!!! I read The Pearl Trilogy and fell in love with Alexandre!!!! He fell in love with an older woman!! (I'm an older woman!!) He's SOOOOO hot!!! Oh and the fireman scene!!! WOW OH WOW OH WOW!!!!
The book that Pearl Series fans have been asking for: the flip side of the tale.
The story according to Alexandre Chevalier.
At only twenty-five, Alexandre 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.
Alexandre’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, Alexandre Chevalier, fifteen years her junior.
Pearl is written from Alexandre’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 Alexandre Chevalier’s prowess in the bedroom, this novel contains erotic content and strong language.
Intended for readers aged 18 and over.
I read the Pearl Trilogy earlier this year and loved it. It was not at all what I was expecting and it was a great story!! If you haven't read it, I highly recommend it. This book is from Alexandre's point of view. Now Alexandre is one hot French man that I would LOVE to get to know better!!! Pearl is one lucky woman!! WOW!!! And my favorite scene from Pearl's POV was the Fireman's scene! and now to hear it from Alexandre's POV!!! EVEN HOTTER!!!
This is my favorite quote from Pearl............More men need to read these "rules"!! There would be a lot more happiness in the world! lol"You see I have a code:
a.) No woman is a ‘slut’. Ever. I do not use that word in my vocabulary. If a woman is sleeping around or being promiscuous it’s because she is searching: for love, for a good time, for a good orgasm, for an escape. Or maybe even for money. For whatever reason it may be, no man (or woman) has a right to judge her.
b.) Always call a woman after a date. Even if you never want to see her again. Why? Because it’s polite. Tell her you had a nice time. Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself, especially women.
c.) Don’t bullshit a woman. Don’t say, “I’ll call you,” if you don’t mean it. If you just want sex, make that clear from the beginning. Don’t make promises you can’t keep.
d.) Always walk her home at night, drive her home or call a cab. Pay for the cab yourself. Make sure she has unlocked her door before you drive away.
e.) Don’t invite yourself into her house. Like a vampire, let yourself be invited.
f.) Don’t fuck another man’s girl, no matter how tempting.
g.) The most important rule of all: When you fuck her, let her come first."
