Raw by Belle Aurora Release Day Review & Giveaway

Title: Raw
Author: Belle Aurora
Genre: New Adult Dark Romance
Release Date: January 3, 2014
Hosted by: Love Between the Sheets Promotions

*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.

Kindle Crack Book Reviews Spoiler Free Thoughts:
RawRaw by Belle Aurora
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided in exchange for a fair and honest review. Spoiler- free.  4.75- 5.00 stars.

How do you fall in love with your stalker?    If I had a stalker…  I would be calling 911. Alexa (Lexi) Ballentine…. not so much.  Twitch (Lexi’s stalker) is like a snot at the end of her finger that she just can’t shake off.

My spoiler free take: Belle Aurora’s synopsis of Raw is dead on -- this is a love story gone wrong.  Twitch and Lexi’s story is raw, dark and bit demented like Twitch. This is definitely not a hearts and flowers type of book that makes you think of love songs.  If you are looking for a sweet romance…this is not it.

Lexi and Twitch’s world’s collide and they finally meet.  Lexi is a social worker who wants to help heal her hot stalker from his tortured past.  She doesn’t know much about the moody tattooed control freak…but she knows his past wasn’t pretty.  The “13” tat on his face is a dead giveaway.   Lexi slowly extracts little nuggets of information about his twisted past.  What Lexi doesn’t know is Twitch is hell bent on hurting her…controlling her… and making sure she never forgets him again.

At times I thought that certain aspects of their relationship didn’t carry over from the beginning to the end of the story.  I was wrong…it all made sense. Twitch’s ever changing behavior becomes crystal clear towards the end.  Belle did a fantastic job unraveling this story from alternating POV.   I have to give her huge props for her character development.  Holy hell the stuff in Twitch’s head alone could be its own novella (hint hint).  There were a few times that I wanted to reach in my Kindle and smack Lexi for some of her baddddd judgment calls.    I love that Belle’s writing got under my skin.  By the way Willing Captive fans will love Nox’s storyline integration. BOOM…the end.  The ending is insane!!!  There has to be a Raw (Book #2). That’s all I’m going to say because I am not going to give this crazy story away.  One-click this one.  More Aussie Kindle Crack!

Staring down at my chest, she takes a step closer to me and whispers miserably, “I’m
here to let Brad fuck me.” My cheek ticks and head implodes. She steps closer to me
to add, “He’s going to fuck me. Fuck me til I forget you. Til I forget I ever met you.
He’s helping me drown you out and I like when I’m not thinkin’ about you.”
She looks into my eyes and repeats on a whisper, “You’re poison.”
