Pearl Robinson, is a beautiful and smart documentary producer. She’s forty, divorced and single and hasn’t even had a date for over two years. She has given up on love.
When she hears about Alexandre Chevalier, a young French, Internet billionaire, she assumes he’s a geek who wears a hoodie and keeps pet rats in his bedroom. How wrong she is! She bumps into him face to face and is stunned by his charm, beauty and sophistication, and startled by her strong feelings and desire for a man fifteen years her junior. His looks, wealth and worldwide triumph with his social media site, HookedUp, means he can get any woman he chooses, but there is something about Pearl he finds irresistible…
The couple begins a passionate affair and Pearl’s body is awakened in ways she never imagined possible. She is consumed by him and his magical touch. But dark secrets, jealous family members and other external forces are threatening to pull them apart.
Erotic Romance for readers 18+ contains adult situations and strong language – full-length novel (70,000 words – 278 pages). #1 of a trilogy – all books released.
A pleasant read about discovering love when it’s the last thing you are looking for. Alexandre is obsessed with Pearl (gave her priceless pearls as a gift after just seeing her a couple of times) and is jealous of her being interested in anyone else but is hurt when she wasn’t honest with him about her job. They get over that hurdle but his sister is trying to break them up. Regardless, he asks Pearl to marry him and she accepts. End. While I enjoyed the story I don’t feel invested enough to read any more of the series.
