***Author Note: This is not a love story. This is a story of love gone wrong.***
Growing up the way I did, you’d think I’d be more screwed up than what I actually am.
Soon as I turned sixteen, I left that bump in the road I called home and took my chances on the street.
Best decision I ever made.
Now, at the age of twenty six, I’m educated, employed and damn good at my job.
My friends have become my family. Like me, they know what it’s like to grow up unloved.
But the saying is true.
The world makes way for those who know where they are going.
I know where I’m going and I’ll get there eventually. On my own terms and at my own pace.
But then there’s him.
I feel his eyes on me. I see him hiding in plain sight. He watches me.
He makes me feel.
But it’s real.
I’m sure you’re wondering how a person falls in love with their stalker.
So am I.
This isn’t a story.
This is my life.
(Raw Family #1)
by Belle Aurora
Raw by Belle Aurora is a fast paced, mind boggling story of two characters who’ve been through hell and back in their youth. One turned to helping others and trying to save as many as she could, while the other threw himself into the underground drug ring and came out the leader. This book gripped me, shook me around a bit, and left me completely thrown for a loop.
The characters were intriguing and I connected with Lexi instantly. She’s strong in the way that she is vulnerable, and she gives with everything she has to the people she cares about most. Twitch is seriously messed up from his own home life as a youth, and the things he had to endure left its mark. He grew up fast and hard and that’s how he lives his life. He doesn’t care what the world thinks of him and he does things by his own set of moral codes.
Together these two are hot, hot, hot. I loved their chemistry and they way they couldn’t get enough of each other. They come from very similar upbringings but the way they handled their pasts has made them complete opposites of each other.
The plot is crazy good; you won’t want to put this book down until the end. Aurora goes balls to the wall with the story and takes you down roads you didn’t even think were possible. Rawis a completely different read than what I’m used to and her writing is addictive as heck.
Overall, I loved this story. It ends on a huge cliffhanger and in complete and utter sadness. Your heart will melt right out of your body and even then you’ll are wanting more.
