Product Description

About the Author

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?

Format: Kindle Edition
I've been deliberating for days over what to say about this book and if I'm being honest, my brain is still something of a jumble, but I'm going to do my best to arrange them into some sort of coherent review.

The first thing to say is that I absolutely adored this book. Despite my sometimes slightly aggressive thoughts towards the author, I genuinely did love it.

The writing itself was what stood out to me more than anything. As a fan of Miss James' work, at this point I would probably read the phone book if she decided to write it. But I do feel that with Natexus, she has created something truly special. The words are crafted so perfectly, so poetically, that they seem to weave their way off the page and straight into the squishiest places in your heart usually reserved for Nicholas Sparks movies and repeat watchings of Titanic. Yes, this is an ugly crying sort of book. It's a Kleenex guzzling, twenty five (at least) Creme Egg scoffing, burying your head under the covers at 3am in case anybody catches you snot sobbing kind of book. It's a book with characters so real and so wonderfully written that you feel like they're truly a part of your life. It's a book where you read for hours and hours and when you look up, you find yourself surprised that the real world is still going on around you.

The characters are far from perfect, which is an automatic turn on for me in a book. They make mistakes, they fall down and ultimately rely on one another to pick them up again.

Natexus is, at its heart, a romance story. Boy meets girl, etc, etc, etc. But in fact, beyond that it is so much more. It deals with the sorts of very real issues that people have to live with day after day.

*I ordered a paperback copy of this book direct from the author*

I'm not really sure how to start to review a book like Natexus, but I'm going to do my utmost best to give this book the justice it deserves.

This book drags your heart through the dirt and pain of loss, first love and self discovery and all you can do is keep reading because you don't want the story to ever end.

I cried numerous times while reading the story of Alex and Nat and I think it's fair to warn other readers that you will need to consume your body weight in chocolate while reading.

The characters find a way to saturate not only your emotions, but also your memories of every first you've ever had. I'm not just talking about your memories from your teenage years, I mean every first your heart and body have encountered throughout your life.

You grow-up with Alex and Nat, you look back on the decisions you made and you sigh. It doesn't matter if the decisions/memories this book recounts for you are good or bad, this book just makes you glad you experienced them.

Victoria L James is a fantastic writer and this book is no different. Her style, storytelling and character building is flawless. She puts you right in the book, you live the story and you keep a little of it with you always. You learn lessons, but mostly you learn to look at life through optimistic eyes. No matter what pain you experience, after reading the work of this great writer you will always hold that bit of hope you need to believe greatness could slap you on the arse at any moment.

I cannot recommend this book or writer enough.

**Advanced copy given in an exchange for an honest review**

"I didn’t even hear him get on the bus that day, and in some strange way, it was like he knew how much I’d come to crave our routine, and he knew how much I would struggle without it that morning if I didn't get to see him at all."

“Why little? Why not something that could soar and be seen from miles away by hundreds of people?”
“Because I believe the bigger a person’s presence in the world, the lonelier they are.”

“What has happened to you, Alex?” I whispered.
“The same thing that ruins us all eventually.”
“And what’s that?”
“Grief.”

"You think that there’s just some door you walk through at eighteen that suddenly gives you all the answers on how to be an adult and deal with this stuff? Not even close. We are who we are, we’re all winging this growing up s***. The only way we really learn is by going through it all. The happy, the sad, the hurt, the pain…”

"You didn't look like them, they looked like you. Only cheap imitations."

"You want to know what real desperation is? It’s watching a good soul die too soon and clinging on to its fingertips for as long as you possibly can, just so you can still feel their warmth on your hands. Desperation is watching the rise and fall of their chest through the sea of tears in your eyes and begging – and I mean really, truly begging the afterlife to take you instead.”

Have you ever read a story that grips you from the start? That takes ahold of your heart and drags you onto a roller coaster of emotions, never once letting go, even long after you've turned that last page?

Well, Natexus did just that.

I went into this story not knowing the journey it would take me on.
