The 'hero' of this book stalks the heroine, hires a sleazebag to molest her so the 'hero' can save her, then he slowly pulls her into his world. I was kinda enjoying the story up to this point, because it was clear who the hero was, and why he wanted to be close to the heroine. Also thought he genuinely saved her ... not that it was a sicko setup.
Then we learn he deals drugs for a living. Holy crapoly. Seriously? Call me old-fashioned, but I kinda like a hero I can admire at least a little bit! He also gouges eyes out when he's angry, takes one of the heroine's street kids in and turns him into a drug mule and gets him killed, beats up innocent people who demand he move his fancy car from the middle of an intersection ... yeah, he's soooo sexy. Not. Ick, ick, ick.
The heroine ... I think the author was trying to channel Kristen Ashley, as we get lots of 'breathy' utterances and the heroine suddenly getting 'cute' and 'funny' at weird moments, as well as being showered with bizarre amounts of new clothes and lingerie by the hero. She is a social worker, but thinks it is just fine that the hero deals the drugs that have brought her young clients to ruin. She also stops taking the pill so she'll get pregnant ... oh, Lord, the list goes on.
This is a train wreck in so many ways. I will be staying far, far away from anything else written by this author.
RAW. How I feel. Stripped bare. I started reading this story about Twitch and Alexa, (Lexi). A story that is dark in its conception and delivery but has the most awe-inspiring moments of light and love that it almost chokes you, making you yearn for a clarity that you don’t have. Two people who meet at a young age over an incident that brings Lexi to Twitch, an incident that should have had them running scared but no, they are strong enough to do what needs to be done and then part ways. Years later, across oceans, they meet again, well sort of. Twitch can’t keep Lexi from his mind, doing whatever it takes to get her, to destroy her, to posses her. Then you have Lexi, having no idea who Twitch is but knows he is hers, hers to trust, to want, to hate. When it comes time for Twitch to come to Lexi’s need that’s when the switch is flipped and there’s no going back.
Completely unaware of my surroundings, I heard nothing. I was taken for a ride that had me an emotional mess. I was sad for the innocence lost. I laughed at the absurdity of this story. I yelled at the horror. I was lost to the sensations of my own wants. I was surprised at how I loved the darkness of it. All the while I kept looking at my percentage on my kindle because I kept saying, “Am I done yet?!” Knowing full well that I didn’t want it to end! And when it did…. MIND BLOWN! One can only HOPE that there is more to this and coming soon! Because I am left pulling my hair still saying, “WHAT?! JUST! HAPPENED?!" Phenomenal! Yes, reflecting back and reading what I am writing, I LOVED Raw. I found a new BBF, Twitch, and it doesn’t hurt to have the visuals either! Have you seen the Muse!? Good Gawd in all things dark, dirty, tatted and sexy wrapped in a suit. Bang 5 STARS! Trust me; Belle Aurora has set the standard for new releases for 2014 with RAW. Let’s see what else she brings to the table, I will be waiting! Will you?
