Natexus by Victoria L. James with review by Tanya Rae @Victoria_LJames #TanyaRae’sReview


Natexus by Victoria L. James


Seven breaths left in her chest, yet I looked back at him. He wasn’t meant to be there on the darkest night of my life, but the mysterious Alex Law continued to make a habit of showing up when I least expected him. With one look in his eyes, everything I’d ever been before him drifted away, and everything I was about to become revolved around him.

Grief threatened to ruin me no matter how hard I fought, and Alex had demons of his own to deal with, yet we found a comfort in each other’s pain. We found ourselves alone, two people becoming one. Just us. Natalie and Alex. Natexus. As long as we had each other, we thought we could make it through anything.

We didn’t know there were things out there waiting to destroy us: people we couldn’t escape, fates we couldn’t outrun and regrets we couldn’t avoid. Not all love stories go the same way, and ours was about to take a turn neither one of us could have foreseen. All I could do was stand by and watch as my world fell apart for a second time.

I knew there had been life before Alex Law.

I just had to figure out if there was life after him…

That beautiful, tragic first love of mine.

– Natalie Vincent.

Tanya Rae’s rating: 5 of 5 stars

Have you ever started a book and put it down and then some time later (months later) pick it up again? Well I did. I started Natexus back in February 2016 and some 4 months later picked it up again because it was calling my name. Now that I started reading it again I just can’t stand putting this book down. But, I have to go to work. I guess the timing must just be right now.

I was so torn for my love of Alex Law and Marcus Anderson and I was really upset for Natalie Vincent. I don’t know how she could choose which one to love since, I loved them both how she made that choice I don’t know.

Natexus brought all kinds of emotions out, I laughed and I cried. Victoria you actually brought out the tears pretty early in this book.

As for the name of this book before I even read the 1st word I wondered what was Natexus? Well I found out and I love how you came up with the name of this book!

Victoria L. James you brought on my tears early on. Her dying sisters request. “Never let the end of one thing stop you from enjoying the beginning of another.” “Let him be here,” “Let him in”

And, 1 quote from the book that really meant so much to me was. “Never let the end of one thing stop you from enjoying the beginning of another.”

As you can tell I really loved this book and the timing was finally right for me to read it. I give Natexus 5 Stars and I would give it more if I could. Because I loved it that much.

Natexus was not an ARC. I actually had decided to read it originally in February after reading a couple of my bloggers reviews and I got it off Kindle Unlimited. To Victoria I am sorry it took me so long to have to the book from KU. I am just so happy that I finally read this great story.

About Victoria L. James

Victoria L James is a teenage girl stuck in a thirty-something year-old’s body. Living somewhere ‘oop north’ in England, she has had a strong passion for words and stories going as far back as she can remember, which she credits to her grandmother and her love of reading anything that was on sale and cheap from the local market stall. Never once did she think she would release a novel, though. At best, she thought her love of language and her ability to create stories in her mind would provide her with a ‘get out of jail free’ card whenever she messed up and her parents were mad at her during her teenage years… and when even that didn’t work out, she thought she was pretty much done for.

When an opportunity presented itself for her to take a back seat from paid working life for a few years, she knew straight away that she had to try and write about a few of these worlds she’d come up with along the way, and quieten all the voices in her head without racking up a heavy psychiatry bill for the pleasure.

Wearing her heart on her sleeve and trying to lighten her friends’ and family’s lives with naff, and more often than not, badly-timed, nineties jokes, she has yet to learn the art of knowing when to shut up. Which is another reason writing became a passion of hers. With pen and paper, there are no limits.

A firm believer in never quitting, with a ridiculous obsession for all things Rocky, she hopes that one day she writes a story that will inspire at least one person out there to keep on going if they’re struggling. Other than that, she’s just a regular old converse wearing, corona sipping, English version of Chandler Bing, who loves and adores her family more than life itself. Oh, and she also has two cats. Every writer has to mention their cats, right?
