Book Review – Raw by Belle Aurora

There is so much to say about Raw! I am going to start with the two drawbacks for me:  a cleaner editing job and a graphic of Twitch would have been appreciated! I had a difficult time visualizing him in my head! The number and patterns of tattoos were a mystery, and unfortunately at the conclusion I still do not understand the “13” on his cheek, so if anyone has insight please share.

That being said, this book was GREAT! Twitch was an amazing character. He didn’t pretend to be anyone that he wasn’t. Lexi loved him for who he was to her and didn’t try to change him to the rest of the world. I also appreciated that he didn’t pretend to be better than he was. We knew exactly who and what he was and still found a reason to care about him. Lexi’s monologue says it all:

“I don’t want a knight in shining armor.
I want a knight in scuffed armor.
I want his helmet to have dents. I want my knight to be real, and dark, and savage. I want my knight to be a survivor.”

The relationship between Lexi and Twitch with solid. It was an interesting concept to have her feel safe around her stalker. This story was original. It made me cry and it gave me chuckles. I do have a tendency to love crime related romances, and I absolutely LOVE the ending! It was a surprise that I did not expect it and it gave me chills. Like most others I would enjoy seeing the story continue in a sequel, because I really do enjoy sequels. However, I just don’t know if you could tell the story any better than what it already is!

As for other extras, I love the skeleton logo. It added to the mystery. I appreciate the story being told by both Lexi and Twitch. I enjoyed both of their quirky friends. And I share their mutual attraction to chocolate. I hated finishing the story and already plan to read it again. Just wish I had the recipe for “cocoa à la Lexi” to enjoy with it!
