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.
Six minutes after he’d vowed to love me forever and I was the happiest I’d ever been. He wasn’t meant to be with me at the start of my next adventure, but the other half of my soul — the man I’d been away from for far too long — had slammed back into my life with unashamed force all over again. With one look in his eyes, I was lost to all his promises, and I couldn’t find a single reason for us to spend another second apart.
Happiness became a dangerous addiction — one Alex Law was able to wrap me in with an ease no one else had ever done before. Yet no matter how high the clouds we rode upon climbed, the echoes of our pasts never seemed to be too far away.
Not all happily ever afters go the same way and ours was about to bring out sides of both of us that we never knew existed. All I could do was hold my breath and hope that whatever storms we passed through, they wouldn’t be strong enough to tear us apart for a second time.
Our eternity started with a kiss. Now it was up to me to prove that forever really could last a lifetime with nobody else but him.
That beautiful, breathtaking first love of mine.

Magic. Love. Heartache. Soul aching, breathtaking, beautiful. These are some words that come to mind after reading Natexus and its accompanying novella, All of Me. My heart. My stomach. Chills down my spine and goosebumps all over my entire body.
These are the kinds of books I live for. When I dove into Natexus, I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect. I had grabbed the sample and I couldn’t stop. I was lost in a love story that melted my heart and kept me glued to my kindle.
Victoria L. James is a new-to-me author and God, I love discovering these hidden gems. Her writing is fantastic—not only did she give you all the feels, she transported you to the city of Leeds where you are living and breathing this story.
A love story that spans over a decade. We meet Alex and Natalie—two broken souls who complete one another. Together they heal the other’s broken and shattered hearts. They are soul mates who meet and… fireworks!
“Alex Law had wings, even though he didn’t know it yet. He was born to fly and be seen by everyone. He was here to make the blank canvas of the sky more appealing for the rest of the world.”
We all know that feeling of first love. You soar, you complete each other in ways that you’ve only dreamt about.
“He was the dream I never knew I’d had, the spark that was always going to set me aflame and make me feel alive right before I burned to death.”
So many obstacles stand in their way of getting their fairly tale ending. There were moments I wanted to hug my kindle and others I wanted to throw it across the room!! BEST. FEELING. EVER.
“Real love, the love that seeps deep down into your bones, it’s awkward. It’s complicated and it’s raw. There’s no such thing as being swept off your feet and magical happily ever afters, as beautiful as those stories are. You have to learn to find a way to carry each other when it’s time, but also let each other wander when it’s needed, too.”
I know I’m not giving a lot away here, but you truly need to go in blind and just savor it all.
Ms. James’s words had me feel every emotion possible. I laughed, I cried, I bled. The amount of times I highlighted was crazy. Her words are that incredible.
If you’re looking for a love story for the record books, you have to grab Natexus and All of Me. Cancel all your plans, grab a glass of wine (maybe the whole bottle) and get ready to fall in love.

About Victoria L. James
Victoria L. James is a teenage girl stuck inside a thirty-something-year-old’s body. A Corona and nacho appreciator with a ridiculous obsession for all things Rocky Balboa, she currently lives in Yorkshire, England, with her husband and two baby boys. Having had a strong passion for words and stories going as far back as she can remember, she credits her love of literature to her Grandma Bess who taught her that you don’t need a lot of money to travel to different worlds, experience new places, and live a thousand lives. And so Victoria’s unexpected journey to writing began, one impressionable Sweet Valley High book and tragic diary entry at a time.
Wearing her heart on her sleeve and trying to lighten life with naff, and more often than not badly-timed, nineties jokes, she has yet to learn the art of knowing when to shut up. A firm believer in never quitting and a champion of every underdog that exists, she dreams of being able to write forever, hoping her stories will inspire at least one person out there to keep on pushing against the tide of their own struggles. Reading is always the ultimate escape.
