Book Review: Raw by Belle Aurora

Take everything that you know about romance books and love stories and just throw them out the damn window. Raw is unlike any book I have read before. It is erotic and emotional and fucked up and well...just raw. That is probably the most appropriate book title ever. Twitch is not a good guy in any way, but Lexi doesn't care. She's drawn to him and there is no way she can stop herself from indulging. And while his original goal was to hurt her - break her - he realizes he can't because he loves her. He has always loved her.

Nothing went down in this book as I expected it to. It kept me on my toes while also keeping me hot and bothered. To say there is a surprise ending is an understatement. It was just a pretty monumental shock for me. And while readers seem to be begging for a sequel, there won't be one. At first I was one of those people screaming "No way! It can't end like this! I need more!" But after taking some time to let it all sink in and reflect, I get it. I get why it ended the way it did and I get why there won't be more. It is truly and painfully brilliant and one of my favorite reads of 2014.

"'re so fucking hot when you get worked up that I would really like for you to suck my cock. And when I say I would really like that, I mean suck my cock, Lexi. Now."

"Not everyone can be a fairy-tale hero. The world needs villains too."

Marianna's Rating:

Title: Raw
Author: Belle Aurora
Genre: Dark Romance, Erotica, Contemporary Romance
***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.
