***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. ***This book includes situations that some may find uncomfortable.
Quote: There’s something about Twitch. He’s just … raw. Everything about him is raw. And Gritty. And Unbound.
I have to be honest, this is the fourth time I have read this book – Twitch will cut you apart, break your heart and fracture your soul. Alexa and Twitch have such an incredible journey to travel and it’s not over by a long shot.
I first read Raw in 2014, then twice in 2015 whilst I patiently waited for the next instalment of the Raw Family. I am sorry, I was not prepared to share my thoughts, I was not prepared to review until Dirty (Raw Family #2) was going to be released. Once you finish this book you will understand, try being me like so many other readers and waiting since 2014. The author has received such passionate pleas for the next instalment, you will understand when again you turn that last page.
Raw is one book that has simply stayed with me forever. I have now read Raw again in preparation for Dirty (Raw Family #2) and I still am emotionally shattered upon finishing this story, it is not over by a long shot. You will pick up Dirty (Raw Family #2) in the hope that you are given more.
Fair warning, you are not given a HEA however you are given hope.
Alexa and Twitch are explosive, passionate and sensual, you know when you read a book and you get that tingly feeling in your belly, you feel a little bit sick because you just know it is going be hard. Raw is definitely gritty and will devastate your soul but in the end you will love it – Life is not easy, Love is not easy but sometimes the journey is what makes you appreciate what you have.
