Raw by Belle Aurora

Book description from goodreads.com:

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.

My rating:

5 stars

My review:

I have a shit-ton of emotions swirling in my head about this book.  About 30% of my goodreads friends were reading it, so I had to see what it was all about.  This is one fucked up ride of a book.

Lexi grew up in a broken home.  She ran away when she was 16 and was put in foster care, following her foster mother from the US to Australia.  She educates herself and becomes a social worker, and she loves her job.  She has two best friends, but….

Lexi knows she is being stalked.

She doesn’t know by who.  Then one day, she is almost raped and rescued by her stalker.  She then begins a relationship with him.  His name is Twitch – and he is a BAD guy.  Twitch is a drug dealer with some major anger issues.  He has a thing for Lexi.  Why was kind of predictable, but interesting nonetheless.

There were some seriously major twists in this book that I didn’t see coming.  Which made this book even better than it already was.

This book was incredibly, incredibly good.  I really found myself really loving Twitch, despite him being a bad guy with some good in him.  This book made me mad, made me smile and made me sad all at the same time.  These characters, while incredibly flawed, were very endearing.

And, the end left me wanting more.  A lot more.  I’m seriously hoping for a sequel.

My recommendation:

Read it.
