Review by Jackie: Hooked Up by Arianne Richmonde

I believed in sex, once upon a time. And passion. But now my life as a single, divorced career girl living alone in New York City was all about work. I hadn't had a date in years.

But then he came along . . . Alexandre Chevalier. The French CEO billionaire of HookedUp, the social media phenomenon that had taken the world by storm. 
He was the most beautiful man I'd ever seen, and with eyes so green they seared into my soul.
Like a flash of lighting he struck me down . . . his touch was electric, and I knew my life was irrevocably changed. I'd never be the same again.

He awakened every fiber of my being, ignited every cell in my body.
And just when I thought things couldn't be more perfect . . . 
It all came crashing down.
I'd had it with all the crazy women in my life: the models, the movie stars, even my power-hungry sister and business partner. If you'd had a past like mine, you'd understand. 
I just wanted a normal relationship with a normal woman . . . 

And then I met her . . . Pearl Robinson.
She was perfect for me.
Or so I thought.
But I was in for a shocking surprise when I found out the truth . . .
Of who she really was. 

HOOKED UP is a series of three, full-length novels averaging 300+ print pages each, to be released at intervals of one month and three weeks.

Disclaimer: If your e-reader should melt while reading this series, the author cannot be held responsible.

Pearl fans take note: this is a new, reedited version of the Pearl books, told in dual POV throughout. The series is primarily for NEW readers, or those who would like to immerse themselves, once again, in Pearl and Alexandre's passionate love story, so please do not expect a new storyline.

I was given this book for a honest review
Hooked Up is the retelling of The Pearl Series by Arianne Richmonde and this time the story is told in both Alexandre Chevalier and Pearl Robinson POV. I loved The Pearl Series and I could not believe Arianne would be able to better the story, boy was I wrong Hooked Up is brilliant, I felt like I was reading this story for the first time.....
Pearl is an older woman who has given up on relationships and decided to concentrate on her career and that means getting a meeting with Alexandre Chevalier and his sister Sophia so she can get them to agree to a documentary on there online social media sensation Hooked Up . This is easier said than done as these guys are very private people. Pearl misses the conference that they are speaking at but as luck would have it she bumps into Alexandre at a coffee shop. Sparks fly as soon as they two met and there is no doubting the chemistry between them. Alexandre has women in every country will he give them up for Pearl, Pearl does not believe in relationships will Alexandre be able to chance her mind but most importantly will they be able to get over why Pearl needed to meet Alexandre in the first place ...... A documentary.
I loved switching back and forth on the POV's and the sex in this book is hot as hell. It was a breath of fresh air to have a older woman experiencing and learning about sex and love from a man who knows his way around a bedroom well he is French .......
There is a cliffhanger but book 2 comes out in Jan so not long to wait.
Fantastic Job Arianne Richmonde once again you gave me another book I was up all night reading.

ARIANNE RICHMONDE is the USA TODAY bestselling author of the suspense novel STOLEN GRACE, and The Pearl Series books, which have sold over quarter of a million copies. SHADES OF PEARL, SHADOWS OF PEARL, SHIMMERS OF PEARL, PEARL, and BELLE PEARL. Also, THE GLASS TRILOGY, and THE STAR TRILOGY, both steamy, Hollywood romance series.
She lives in the French countryside amidst vineyards, with her wonderful French husband, two dogs, two cats, and other creatures that try to sneak their way into their old, stone farmhouse, which the couple restored themselves. On most days, you'll find Arianne cleaning sixteen paws worth of mud off the floors . . . that's when she's not immersed in creating lovable but dysfunctional characters for her novels (and a villain or two), while sipping Bordeaux paired with dark chocolate.
