Veronica will tell you what goodre@ds will not

About

Hi! I’m Veronica from Queensland and you can find me in goodreads posting rants on books. I created this blog to provide information about books that prestigious sites such as Goodreads, Kirkus reviews and Common sense Media are not telling you regarding the erotic content of books marketed for underage readers and other problematic issues. I’ll mention Sarah J. Maas books because her Empire of Storms and the A court of Mist and Fury contain explicit scenes, (non-fade to black)  of fellatio and cunnilingus and still they are marketed as appropiate for under age readers. The information of erotic content on books marketed for underage readers isn’t widely known and I’ll lay the information out there so parents and readers can make informed decisions about reading or buying a certain book.

 

I might also rant about my biggest trigger in Romance books: Cheating.

 

This isn’t a call for authors to stop writing whatever they want.

This isn’t a call for you to attack authors whose works I really enjoy.

This is a call for honest reviews and precise information that serves us the readers and not the agenda of publishing companies.

 

I’ll praise the reviewers (booktubers or casual reviewers) who give people information that the publishing industry would prefer not let people know. Thank you for your honest reviews!

Re-read: Amazon sent me a letter to update the book. Love it EVEN more the second time.

First and foremost. I DON'T WANT IT TO END! I WANT MORE PLEASE!!!!!

Thank you Mya Roberts for writing this beautiful, epic LOVE STORY.

Now the theme itself is so HORRIFYING that for a while I debated whether I wanted to read the book or not. Usually rape is not something I want to read. In fact I read the reviews of the V girl first before reading and most of them were accurate, rape is not something that we get to see graphically . I can't stand rape. I just can't. But the INTELLIGENT, MATURE, ALMOST POETIC approach the author used to tackle this difficult topic was brilliant. There's rape, the blurb says as much but it's more than a menace, a threat to the people who live in this world. 90% of the book the story is more about the Heroine's fight, about her feelings, not about rape for the sake of bringing drama. Nothing like game of thrones style.

It's sad to think that The V girl society is very realistic. I think our own society has come to accept rape and abuse as something that can't be avoided. From where we stand as society where rape culture is fed on us daily to the moment a society like this becomes a reality...i'm sad to think about it but it may happen. it seems like whenever there's war there's crime. Looting, Murder, torture, rape, slavery. Honestly just see what Hitler did. I'm sure his high comanders had green card to do whatever they wanted to the people they oppressed. Countless of TV shows, movies and books talk about torture and murder during war. They never talk about rape and that's sadly the reality every women of every country that has been invaded has to live. For them or for someone they know.

There's PLOT

YOU HEAR ME PLOT

and subplots too. There's a good story here that made me cry, laugh, throw my kindle to the garbage (literally) swoon REPEATEDLY.

Swoon? why?

Because ALEKSEY FURST! A SOLDIER WHO DOES WHAT'S RIGHT! what the other soldiers should do. PROTECT PEOPLE and he wasn't expecting to fall in love with Lila but he did. It's a very difficult situation for this couple. On the one hand she FOR OBVIOUS REASONS hates soldiers. On the other hand IT'S PROHIBITED TO HAVE A FOREIGN AND AN AMERICAN getting married and the punishement is torture. (rape? no problem. Love? heaven forbid! how come?)

But aleksey fights his way to get Lila's heart, he changes for her, he risks everything for her, and little by little she'll find that Aleksey is not her enemy. He's there to LOVE HER not to take advantage of the situation.

Would he gain her heart and have the honor to be the one who deflowers the heroine?






There's plenty of sex. yes but it's portrayed in a way that fits the plot perfectly.

And when you reach the 85% mark you'll be ready to cry and soak your kindle. Its that dramatic. And what comes next is horrifying.

But thanks god there's something that Roberts had in store for us that we weren't expecting. A HEA just when things looked to be going for the worst, just when I thought happiness wasn't possible, I learned that there's hope and I ended up smiling. It was so beautiful.

Now a warning. The book is BRUTAL, HORRIFYING AND NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. It's super dark and for your sake if you're squimish I suggest you skim or even avoid chapters 53 and 54. I'll repeat AVOID CHAPTERS 53 AND 54 if you're squimish. They're brilliant but not for the faint of heart. Even so I think Roberts did a great job in presenting a scene like that only when was needed. She didn't overuse the horror of the situation to bring more drama. I think it was beautifully handled.
I'm a fan and I'm recommending this book to everyone on my list.
