Arianne Richmonde blew me away ! What an ORIGINAL heartrending story! She has done it again with her amazing writing style. But what a plot! What a fabulous storyline! I loved Shadows of Pearl maybe even more than Forty Shades of Pearl. I wasn't sure how Alexandre's and Pearl's story would continue after the seemingly HEA in book 1 but she more than delivered with this heart-wrenching, nail-biting novel which has you on the edge of you seat. I couldn't put my iPad down! I have now read the whole trilogy and what I love so much is the way each book is different, each with its own journey and character development. You get to understand why the protagonists behave and think the way they do. Anyone who says that Pearl is an immature forty year-old has obviously not turned forty yet or is totally devoid of a sense of humor. Do we really want to be reading about some always do-and-say-the-right-thing heroine? Forty year-olds feel just as vulnerable as twenty year-olds when it comes to love; maybe even more so. They are just as sexy, just as beautiful. Forty year olds carry baggage, have wrinkles, have a past. Where are people getting this nonsensical idea that by the age of forty you should have your head completely sorted out? That's what makes Pearl so lovable. She is vulnerable, real and flawed. And she makes mistakes. Yet we are rooting for her all the way. I LOVE Pearl and her mad antics. She is one of the most believable heroines in a long time. Arianne Richmonde doesn't lay it all out on the table as with, for instance, Bared To You. E.g...letting readers know from the outset that they will be reading about two messed-up characters. Her writing is more subtle, more layered. You discover little by little that both Pearl and Alexandre are both unusual and yes, pretty screwed up. There is humor, too. Neither takes themselves too seriously which I love. In Shadows we see Pearl in a different light. As the title warns us the 'shadows' of her past' come back to haunt her and jeopardize her relationship with Alexandre. But the truth is, the way the novel is so cleverly structured and paced, we DON"T KNOW WHOSE SIDE WE"RE ON! There are so many twists and turns in this book that it elevates it to way more than just an erotic novel. At one point I didn't know WHO to believe. GREAT JOB Arianne Richmonde! I really think this trilogy should be on the New York Times Bestseller list. It is different, really well written (perfect grammar, no repetition, great dialogue). Anyone who skips this trilogy is really missing out.

I was just telling my daughter about your trilogy. Not since Harry Potter has a series affected me so much. Books are well written. Could not put this book down. Must read Forty Shades of Pearl first which is also awesome! You are a talented writer and I am glad to have found you

I could not even finish this book. The writing in ths book was horrible. The dialogue was not believable and was uncomfortable at times. Don't waste your money on this series.
