Monogamy, Victoria Sobolev

Nothing is as it seems at first sight. Feelings are laid bare. There is no black and white. There is no right. And the wrong feels too good to be trusted.

People think that Alex was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, not only rich, but blessed by luck. Men respect him, women dream of him, and Alex alone knows the strength it takes to conceal his tortured soul and devastating secrets.

But despite those powerful life lessons, he has always believed in his father’s words, ‘When you fall in love, you love forever – it’s in our family blood. Look for HER and you’ll find your happiness beyond thought…’

Valeria has never experienced actual romance (an early pregnancy, a hasty marriage, a life filled with work and study) and considers herself a pragmatist. She was taught to live by the rules: if you get married, then you love your husband; if you dream of a new home, then you work hard. But when, against all logic, she finds a beautiful stranger in her bed, her world turns upside down. After all, falling for the forbidden can be too sweet not to try… at least once.

They come from the opposite ends of the globe, but the collision of two soulmates is destined. Fate will send them on a lifelong journey from Eastern Europe to Spain, France, the United States, and back.

Their story is a mix of a beautiful fairy tale and a painful nightmare. It`s not something you`ve heard before: everything is too vivid, too honest, too emotional and too profound.

An attraction at first sight;

A passion that breaks all rules;

A hypnotic melody – it conquers all.

This is one love for life and beyond time,


Monogamy is an exceptional book written by Victoria Sobolev and wow, what a stellar book! Monogamy for me was moving, captivating and addictive right from the start and I felt this from beginning to end. Monogamy was captivating to me from the start thanks to the premise of the story and the bewitching literature courtesy of the author, Victoria Sobolev who from the start hooked me with her fantastic story. It is rare to find a novel that combines the themes this book does, and that is refreshing to me, and it is even more challenging to discover a story that does not rely on cheap romantic thrills! Monogamy does have thrilling romantic moments; however, they are tasteful and in no way gimmicky which is always fantastic in a book!

Monogamy is an exceptional novel that will introduce the reader to two main characters, Alex and Valeria. Valeria is a woman who has never experienced true romance, she got pregnant, quickly married and had no real fun in her life. However all of this changes when Valeria meets Alex and when they do, sparks fly! The reader will follow the pairing as they go on a journey like no other, all across the world and what follows is a moving and captivating story and this book lovers is the short premise of the incredible Monogamy!

The premise of Monogamy is exceptional and different from your typical romance tale. I loved the many themes and elements explored throughout the book, and all themes are explored by Sobolev wonderfully, and she does this by lacing these interesting themes throughout the text flawlessly and weaving them with the story. The result of this makes Monogamy a highly addictive and fascinating read that is never once lackluster or predictable!

Victoria Sobolev is a phenomenal writer who knows how to grasp her reader’s attention from the first page. Sobolev instead of writing long, drawn-out builds up which are commonly found in novels, decides to ditch this approach and thrust her reader into the heart of the story straight away so that the reader is instantly captivated and immersed. I personally love this approach, what is the point of having a long build-up with little excitement? This is only necessary if the author in question can’t develop the characters in the story quickly, but with Monogamy, the reader, will not encounter this issue because Sobolev instantly develops her characters and makes the reader invest in not only them but also their journey.

Overall Monogamy is a captivating, compelling and thought-provoking novel that will easily entertain readers for many days and nights and so I, of course, have to award this stellar gem of a book five stars! Be sure to have a read of the preview below book lovers, you won’t regret it!
