*Review* True Souls by Michele Gantz

Genre: Erotic Romance
Published: March 14, 2017
Pages: 37


She's my everything, my true soul. My entire world was rocked by Belle. So young, so dumb, I didn't realize until that night… 
Three years later and she's finally all mine. Not just my girlfriend- no so much more. 

I wasn't supposed to fall in love with my best friend’s brother, but when you meet your true love, nothing can stop the fall. 
That's what happened with Jax and me. 
He's the one who holds my soul. And nothing can ever change that. 

God, I hope she's right.


I was hired to proofread this book. The only aspects of the story that I influenced were the spelling and grammar. If you feel that my connection to the book makes my review untrustworthy, so be it, but this is my honest review. 

First off, I have to say that I would highly recommend that you start reading the series with this prequel, even though it's the second book published (obviously if you've already started the series you can't do that, but for those of you that are new to it, start with this.) You see, I spent an obscene amount of time while reading this book reminding myself that the events happened before the ones I already knew about from Entwined Souls. It was really disconcerting for me, and detracted from the story a bit (because that is an aspect of the story that shouldn't make me work for it.) Now, the prequel doesn't have to be read for Entwined Souls to make sense, it seems largely irrelevant in fact, but if you're going to read it, read it first. 

I thought this book was an interesting look into what life might be like for a young YouTube star, particularly one whose videos are about fashion and make-up. The potential for jealousy amongst your peers would be HUGE, and the teen years are hard enough to navigate as it is. This really helped to set up Belle's character, and even sort of explained why she and Amia are best friends even though they seem so very different. 

So in spite of the fact that personality wise I'm far more like Amia than I am Belle, I was able to relate to Belle in this story, because in my youth, I desperately wanted to date one of my best friends' brother. I'm about 93.7% sure the feeling wasn't mutual, but it was in my daydreams, and that's what really counts right? My friend probably wouldn't have handled me dating her brother nearly as well as Amia did though. 

Overall I give True Souls 4.5 out of 5 stars. - Katie

About the Author

In my time on this Earth, I have always been intrigued by the written word. As a child, I was always a strong reader. As I grew older, I found other hobbies, that was until I was introduced to Edward Cullen, yes, I was a Twihard! I loved the Twilight Saga very much and opened my eyes back to the Young Adult book world. I was ravenous again, reading any YA book I could get my hands on.

This eventually lead to the inevitable right? Fifty Shades of Grey entered my world, and while I, like many, enjoyed it. But I was left thinking, wow, the romance genre really has changed, and I like it!! I began paging through Amazon desperately searching for books. Then I discovered book blogs and my world was done.

I eventually became a reviewer for a blog, and couldn’t have been more thrilled. I discovered a love within myself for dark, dangerous antiheroes that could be found within the pages of books. This amazing indie book world introduced me to some of my now best friends, opened my eyes to amazing authors, and has turned into a career that I know love.

After reviewing for another blog and helping with blogging duties, I craved running my own blog, and with the help of some of the most amazing women, we created #Minxes Love Books. Silly name as it may seem, we had fallen in love with Jaimie Roberts writing, and we were known for creating funny hashtags in her street team. She began calling us her #Minxes, so we KNEW when we started a blog, that it just had to be that! We have grown a following and love what we do!!

Now, join me as I enter into the world of authorship. I honestly cannot wait to share this story as these characters have been screaming in my head for years for me to tell their story.
