Raw - Belle Aurora


[Raw + Belle Aurora + Jan 2014 + 4★]


[My Thoughts & Favorite Quotes]




"Monsters don't always lurk in the shadows. [...] Sometimes they hide in plain sight."


Alexa Ballentine - She's a sweet social worker. She has amazing friends and a stalker.
Twitch - He's an antihero. He's intense and damaged.


"...just Twitch. I can't really explain him to you. It's something you have to experience. He likes control and he's not afraid to let people know that. He can be so fucking arrogant and annoying one second, then the next second, he has you wanting to take orders from him. He's intense. And kind scary."


✳ I haven't read anything by Belle Aurora.
✳ Raw is not an usual romance.
✳ It made me step out of my comfort zone.
✳ I felt  discomfort and pain.
✳ This book made me laugh - surprise! - and cry.

✳ I don't completely agree with the reason Twitch used for wanting to "break" Alexa. I understand he’s lived a rough life, but she was just helping him...

✳ I love happily ever afters, but I think the ending was fitting for Alexa and Twitch.

"Raw and gritty, and dirty as hell. And it's not often you see your fantasies come to life. This fantasy though? It's scaring the shit out of me."



I will definitely be reading more of this author's work.
