RAW Review!!!!

Publication Date:  1/13/14


***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. 
That’s me. 
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. 
It’s unconventional. 
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. 

***This book includes situations that some may find uncomfortable.



My Review:

I actually walked into this book not knowing what to expect.  I didn't read the synopsis before I picked it up.  I saw the cover, and knew Belle Aurora wrote it, and that was enough for me!  WOW!  I was not let down!

We start with a young girl who hears her neighbor getting rough with his kid, and she goes out to help the kid after his stepfather is done pounding on him.  She helps a reluctant little boy with his wounds.  Even though she knows it could get her into trouble as well.

Flash forward several years and the little girl has grown up to be a social worker who is being stalked.  Lexi has become a savior of children so to speak.  She helps teens who had no future at home find a future within themselves, and she is good at it.  But she is curious about the man who follows her and watches her every day.  After nearly being raped, she gets to meet him up close and personal.

Twitch is fantastic!  He is completely twisted and deeply wounded, a lot of it seems to be more in his head than what has happened to him, but make no mistake, he is dangerous and sexy.  After a very rough childhood, Twitch has become a rather unusual success story.  But don't think of him as a CEO of a conventional company, because you would be off base.  He seems to be the leader of a group of people who have been put through the ringer, and they are all interesting characters.

I am not going to go into too much detail, but I will say this is a rollercoaster of awesome!  It is one of my favorite books so far this year!  What a great way for Ms. Aurora to start 2014!

I give this book 5 lipsticks!  It is hot, dangerous, intriguing, and downright intoxicating!  You must read this!
