Pearl Lover - New Review

Happy Saturday :)
It's time for a new review. Kea Noli contacted me about her novel Pearl Lover. The first thing that got my attention was the fact that she told me it was an unconventional book. It is true that some might find it a bit difficult to accept some of the relationships in the book but for me was really fun to read about them. I like to think that as long as you are happy and the other person too, you can have any kind of relationship.


PEARL LOVER
by KEA NOLI
 
FROM GOODREADS.
 
A spoilt debutante. A manipulating mother. And a love triangle with a twist.
In this thrilling romance, Nixie Veidt is forced to choose between money and love. She must stay faithful to the bureaucrat she married to save her inheritance, but her love belongs to a Russian dancer. When she hires him for her company, she risks everything. Will she lose the money, or gain the man she loves?
Is it moral to love two men? Be prepared for an unconventional ending.
A debutante's conflicting love for two men, and  the struggling rebirth of Ballets Russes, a ballet company.


MY REVIEW.

My rating: 4.5/5

Pearl Lover is the story of Nixie, Morten and Kolya. A love triangle set in the ballet world. It might seem like a simple love triangle but it’s deeper than that. It’s a story about acceptance, about struggle to be the owner of your destiny and about what we are willing to do for those we love.

It all start when Nixie father’s die. Her mother (Maria) wants to control her and the inheritance until she turns at least 21. Maria, a former dancer, is the typical wealthy woman, who only cares money and what people think.

Nixie has to marry a man she doesn’t love in order to be able to control her money and start her own ballet company. Kolya the dancer she really loves is the head of the company. And then we had Morten, a former police officer, who believes in love at first sight and is willing to do anything just to make Nixie happy.

The book moves very fast between the start of the company, their travelling across Europa, their struggle to perform and then to survive to the final end which I will not spoil. It’s a well-developed background for all the romance.

It also has a magnificent description about ballet. I’m a ballet fan and the dances and movements of the ballerinas are so well written that you could almost feel like you were at the theatre watching a play.

And now about the love triangle. The story between the three characters is intense to say the least. The idea of been able to love more than one person at the time is something that reader as well as the characters will have to accept or at least try to understand. Their feelings, choices and their attempts to do the right thing are very fun to read.

The book takes you in a roller-coaster of emotions. I changed from hating Kolya to like him and the same with Nixie but I loved Morten all the time. As for Maria she is the bad-guy of the book, is really hard to feel anything good about her.

I really liked Pearl Lover and I recommend it to all romance lovers out there.
