intro: laconic: sidereal book one


Taein Kim, affectionately known as "Blondie", is an incredibly talented young man and leader of the rookie K-Pop group Eclipse. Tae has his whole life and career in front of him, but it comes to a screeching halt when a standard meet and greet leads to him finding his soulmate, a foreign girl named after the goddess of love.


Venus Woods is the young heiress of the largest tech corporation in Southeastern America. Her life revolves around meaningless events and empty white walls, devoid of color and purpose. She never thought she would meet her favorite idol group, Eclipse, let alone form the incredibly rare soulmate bond with their leader. As if that’s not life-changing enough, her absent mother is determined to have the two married, using her daughter as a bargaining chip.


Separated by lifestyle, culture, and language, the teens have wall after wall between them. None of it stops the blossom of love that blooms in their hearts when they lock eyes under the cover of a thunderstorm.

"...Mother’s always been more interested in how I looked on paper. Good grades, good conduct, good at obeying rules. And because of it, I feel just like that - a piece of paper flat and covered in someone else’s notes."

"It’s already unusual enough that I’m the youngest and the leader, so I feel like I have to work even harder to prove myself. CEO Park saw something extra special in me and gave me this rare chance to be the leader of Eclipse. The last thing I want to do is let anyone down."

I would just like to say how much I loved this book. I read Mythomania and was very excited to read this book. I honestly loved Venus and Taein. Their love story was quite an interesting one considering all of the language and cultural barriers but seeming them push through and develop their relationship was amazing. Very excited for the next book in the series and I very much recommend reading this.

Amazon Reviewer

As one with a passion for reading and writing, I wholeheartedly recommend this book. I almost never re-read books, but I will gladly read this one over and over again. Intro: Laconic tapped into my emotions (happy, sad, and the ones in between) and left me completely awestruck and delighted. I absolutely cannot wait to read more.

Venus is not your average teenager. One thing that was apparent was how loney she is. Taein is a young man under a lot of pressure. Going in I thought this was going to be a cute boy meets girl but this author decides to hit me with a surprise.
This is a story where there may be cultural differences but our couple do have some things in common. As I was getting to know Taein and his friends, first group I thought of was BTS. I think that anyone that’s crushing on the group and their music may enjoy this story. There’s some fantasy to this so don’t expect everything to seem realistic.


Interlude: Peripeteia

sidereal book two


Venus thought that meeting her soulmate Taein would change her for the better. She never could have imagined uprooting her life and hiding their relationship once she moved across the world.

Upon returning to Korea, the spotlight is on Taein’s band Eclipse like never before. Fame and new opportunities should make him happy, but the harsh realities of his career are more draining than anything.


When old flames and family secrets start coming out of the shadows, the soulmates are pulled further and further apart, pushing their relationship to the brink of collapse.

"Once our relationship is public, will we be able to do those simple things? Will I have to worry about being mobbed? Will I have to worry about someone hurting Venus? I've always wanted Eclipse to be a bigger band than we are, but at what cost?"
