Synopsis:

This contemporary, literary romance tells the story of Tara, a 38-year-old East European woman who falls in love with Adrian, a 25-year-old English boy. A psychological tale of mind and heart in a catastrophic collision. Struggles, pain, doubts, desire, guilt, shame, torment, you name it. All human emotions described in detail. But there is more, way more. A novel for soulful people only. Read it and rate it! 

Rating: 4-stars

Review:

Half My Age Plus Seven: A Sinful Confession by Cristina G. is an emotional rollercoaster. One that goes wildly crazy. Here, there are two protagonists that are not sure of what they want nor how to go about it. The whole story is surrounded by their weak attempts to make a go of a feeling of attraction. The man hardly puts any effort if at all into loving Tara. So, disappointing. Sad, too. Tara despite her age shouldn’t be so childlike in her responses to their relationship. I barely felt like they had anything to go on…was hoping for better outcomes. Other than that, the plot was believable. It felt real. Not a happily ever after tale like most books. It’s a good read for women. It shows how not to be. Standing up, taking action, knowing what you want and going for it…are lessons taught throughout this piece of literature.

Book Review: Schism by Armando Minutoli

Schism by Armando Minutoli is a fascinating novel unlike many others. It drives readers deep into a unique plot that takes them back to a time and different places with two characters whose cultures differ. I couldn’t believe how incredible this story was until after I started reading it. It’s the kind that is complex, full of adventure and leaves you thinking deep about everything. Once I began reading it, I couldn’t stop until I reached the ending. Readers will love this novel by this talented writer just as much as I did.

Schism, at first glance, may not seem like the novel readers are lured into reading. But, despite it’s title, Schism, is a very powerful read. It has a plot that has drama, adventure, action, and  much more.  It’s like a super novel, it comes with a little bit of everything. There are flashbacks in this novel so, if you’re a reader who doesn’t like flashbacks from characters then this might not be for you. But, I still highly recommend you to try it out because the characters are realistic and the story will tug you in like no other. Armando Minutoli’s words leave readers with a sense of what real faith is like. Evil may lurk everywhere and if there is a God then why does he let such horrible things happen? These questions and many more are not only told but shown to readers in an entertaining way. A way that gives readers a first seat glimpse into it all. So, the real question is… are you prepared for an adventure of a lifetime? If so, read this and enjoy!

Tony Romero is one of the two characters in this brilliantly well-written novel. Right away readers feel a tug towards Tony. I felt sympathy toward a man who thinks he lost everything, including God. Now, that is the hook that lures readers in right away… and makes us want to read further. I did. Tony, even though he made failures, was the kind of man who rushed to save a little girl whose parents didn’t know was in danger… Now, Tony’s life hangs in the balance. Will he make it or will he be lost to the world he knows?  His journey of faith with Obe leads hims into becoming a changed person. Readers will cry, laugh, and be amazed at this remarkable novel. Armando Minutoli has created a beautiful story that should be shared with the world and readers everywhere. It’s the kind one wants to read again and again. Overall, I rate Schism a five out of five stars.
