    1. Emily May

      I think I saw this story on an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."Just as I’m about to give up, I see him. He watches me from under the hood of his jacket, reclining on a café chair. I know I should report this. He’s everywhere. And I mean everywhere. It almost seems like he knows where I’m going to be before I know."I swear I wasn't going to review this book. I'm actually reading a bunch of "dark" romance/erotica books as part of a project with my college book society - we [...]

      2 starsBeing honest sucks donkey balls. Okay I'm going to cut the sweet talk and just list what I didn't like.Numero Uno: Writing styleThere are some books that have the perfect plot, amazing characters, and dynamic chemistry, but I still don’t like. Why? If I can’t even read the book because of the way it’s styled, then I just can’t read the book. It’s not that the author’s style was bad, no. It’s just for me I can’t stand all the fuckin’, darlin’, and other words missing th [...]

      You can read my full review at Sinfully Sexy and enter to win ebooks and swag prizes.5 "I'M NOT SURE I'LL RECOVER" Stars“Raw and gritty, and dirty as hell.”I want to start by emphasizing that I almost never read books that are about a tragic love gone wrong. Nope. I am a wuss and my fragile heart simply can’t handle stories where it does not end in sunshine and butterflies. Therefore, when I discovered that Belle Aurora was writing another book I was beyond blissful. Then.Then.I find out t [...]

      DNF @ 15%Okay, sooooooois is awkward. But I'm gonna go ahead and just call this one here. Because otherwise, I would be ripping this thing to shreds. And as highly entertaining as that has the potential to bee only reason I would be finishing this would be so I could rate it and rip it to shreds. Which would make me an asshole. And mean. Verra mean. And while I am aware that my profile name contains the word "bitchy," because TRUTH, there is a huge difference between being bitchy and just plain [...]

      5 RAW stars!After reading Raw, thought to myself ‘Is this really the same author that wrote The Friend-Zoned series?’ Wow! Talk about diverse writing styles! Although it did have a touch of humor, this book was much more dark than her previous works. And I loved it! I wouldn’t call it a dark and disturbing read, although it did have its moments the words that come to mind when I think of this book are: intense, erotic, suspenseful, gritty and, well, RAW. It's not a happy love story. But he [...]

      4 STARS out of 5(spoilers are hidden and close to end of review)ReviewDAMN THAT ENDING TO ALLLLLL HELL. WHY? WHY? WHYYYYYYY?‘Some things in life are so sad that there are no words to describe the amount of sadness, grief, and sorrow a person is feeling. I assume this is why God allowed humans the simple act of crying. When a person cries, they feel the sadness slowly ease out of them. They feel as though they are justifiably respecting a person that has died through showing their grief. They a [...]

      “Monsters don't always lurk in the shadows. Sometimes they hide in plain sight.”Knowing how this book was going to end did not stop me from shedding tears, missing him hurts, it hurts like hell, but then I read the Epilogue and i’m like no no no non noo noo !! don’t end like that !!

      4 Consuming Stars!!!Raw and gritty, and dirty as hell.Before I carry on let me get this off my chest.Raw is not a dark read, it's exactly what the author says:***Author Note: This is not a love story. This is a story of love gone wrong.***Okay, I'm done!What a riveting and entertaining story! I really enjoyed this reading Raw, Twitch and Lexi were hilarious and infuriating at times, but I had to know their story and where it would go!She's a social worker who has a soft spot for kids who've been [...]

      Title: RawSeries: StandaloneAuthor: Belle AuroraRelease Date:January 3rd, 2014Rating: 4.5 starsCliffhanger: No HEA:(view spoiler)[ No(hide spoiler)]Sweet, heartwarming and hilarious Belle Aurora is officially gone and I’m not sure if I mourned her for a single second. As much as I adored her previous novels, this time she not only astounded me but also showed me how talented she truly is. In Raw she not only challenged herself, completely changing her usual style of writing from easygoing, sna [...]

      2.5 "IF ONLY" stars Sorry, folks I originally DNF @ 65% then managed to get to 72% and after a lot of I started skimming. Then I simply gave up and skipped to the last few paragraphs of the last chapter and then skimmed through an epilogueO, this is a perfect "IF ONLY" book IF ONLY Twitch's characater appeared in a different book IF ONLY Lexi didn't have an IQ of a rubber band IF ONLY this book wasn't written in first person IF ONLY it wasn't that obvious that Twitch (view spoiler)[is a boy fro [...]

    14. Amber Rose

      5 Twitch stole my heart stars Spoiler freeI feel like someone came and kicked me in my chest as hard as they could and leaving me there to care for myself. Honestly that is how I feel right now. It is so hard to come to terms with what I just read and type it down. All I know is that this is my first 5 star book I have read in 2014. I couldn't have asked for more of a perfect book, I couldn't. There is nothing I would have changed. Maybe something but when I think about it I am sad and happy at [...]

    15. JaHy☝Hold the Fairy Dust

      DNF at 50% I don't know if I got the April Fools addition or just a bad case of PMSing but this book wasNOT an entertaining read for me. I was excited to start RAW after seeing rave review after rave review on my feed for weeks . In fact, this nosey bitch did not open a single spoiler because I couldn't wait to cry and have an emotional breakdown of my very ownah, I'm weird like that. Unfortunately the only thing I felt was ABSOLUTE annoyance thanks to Lexi's absurd behavior, and you can think I [...]

    16. Allison ❤️Will Never Conquer Her TBR❤️

      Fan-freaking-tastic! I was shaking at that ending! After calming myself for 12 hours to decompress, here we goDo you like a book that's a little dirty? Ya know, where it's not all hearts and flowers, the sex isn't missionary with soothing music by Sinatra? Where the hero is really an anti-hero who starts out on a mission of revenge and ends up falling for his victim? Yes? Well, then Raw is the book for you!After reading Willing Captive by Belle Aurora, I knew I had to read this. Her writing styl [...]

      “Not everyone can be a fairy-tale hero, The world needs villains too.”. Did this book seriously end that way?LIKE SERIOUSLY?!????SO NOT COOL AUTHOR. LIKE OMFG; WORDS CAN'T DESCRIBE HOW FURIOUS I AM AT THE MOMENT.I hope their story continues. So many things were left unexplained. It feels unfinished. Like we still have business to settle.I am so furious, I am actually sobbing because of how ANGRY I am feeling, more than angry, I feel betrayed. I know I am a hypocrite, wanting authors to have [...]

    19. ⊱✿⊰ Alicia ⊱✿⊰

      2.5 Missed the mark starsOkay so I had a bit of a love/hate thing going with this one, I would be really enjoying it then there would be something said or done and I would be like.Then I would be hating it but it would pull me back in and I would start enjoying it again and the cycle would continue. I think there were two main issues for me:#1 AlexaShe spent most of the book contradicting herself, her inner dialogue saying one thing but she would do the opposite it just got over the top annoying [...]

    20. Jennifer Kyle

      4.5 RAW Stars”After all, the good girl always wants the bad boy. Doesn’t she?”Well that was entertaining! I have to say that although there were several plot holes and Twitch’s reasons for stalking and wanting to destroy Lexi were just flat out odd and my reaction was quite frankly this A LOT of the story…I still found this to be a very hot, fast paced read!The story is told in alternate pov which I love and although both characters behavior was cuckoo to me. Truthfully, this stranger [...]

    21. T.M. Frazier

      First of all when I got the message from Belle Aurora about the ARC I flipped my shit because I LOVED Willing Captive. But then there was this list attached to it of all the deplorable things I had to do to get the ARC and well…I did THEM ALL! Just kidding, just numbers one through six, and a little bit of number 12 for good measure. hehe.Secondly I want to say BRA-fucking-VO to Belle Aurora because this book is NOT a romance and she doesn't pretend that it's one either. It's a love story, jus [...]

    22. Jess-i-ca ~Sometimes a Gif Witch~

      My first thoughts when I finished this were:then I wondered how the eff am I going to review thisDid I like it? Did I hate it? Do I like the characters? Do I loathe them? Am I happy with the way it ended? Is this book just completely weird? Twitch is some kind of effed upI mean CRAZY “Monsters don't always lurk in the shadows. Sometimes they hide in plain sight.”and he has a little bit of an anger problem.Alexa must be crazy too since she's not creeped out by him being her stalkerInstead it [...]

    23. Stacia (the 2010 club)

      2.5 stars. I'm going soft. I can't believe I'm about to give a middling rating strictly based on some sort of connective emotion for a book which my brain is screaming at me to hate.Honestly, I can't figure it out. The writing was sloppy in places, so many generic terms and nicknames were used, and we even had a TSTL heroine. Any one of these things alone can cause me to 1 star a book, and this time it was as if the "Stacia hates it" trifecta was out in full force.Yet, here I am, not hating the [...]

      4.5 Hot Hooded stars“There’s something about Twitch. He’s just…raw. Everything about him is raw. And gritty. And unbound. He’s a raging fire. And I’m a fragile moth fluttering into the flame. Sooner or later, I’m going to get burned. I know this. Will I even survive the heat? How can I trust this man after everything we’ve been through in such a short time?”Well get me on the Belle bandwagon, this is the first book I have read by this author and I LOVED IT!This was a nonstop ad [...]

    25. Elise ✘ a.k.a Ryder's Pet ✘

      Re-read: 02.11.2016I think I liked this book more the second time aroundah, I really think I did. Twitch still does something to my obvious sick heart and while Alexa still annoys me at time, I don't mind her so much because Twitch makes up for it. The story is still sick, devastation, sexy and raw. And wild, even the second time around reading it. I'm also very sure I'll re-read this yet again in the future. Though after hearing a bit about book #2 in this series, I'm not feeling it to continue [...]

    26. Elizabeth

      "I’m so ashamed of myself for wanting this. His brand of sex comes with a warning label. That should make me want to run in the opposite direction.-Lexi"Raw is one sexy and dirty read! We have a sweet heroine who has overcome a challenging childhood. Lexi has devoted her life to helping others. As a case worker, she hands out love and strength like air. She has good friends and a good life. She also has a stalker.Twitch is hard, plays things dirty, and lives life on the wild side. He too has s [...]

      My emotions during this book: Either I was orthen againorandand in the end I was like What should I say about this book?After reading the blurb and some mixed reviewsI thought I would never come out there alive. But I have to say I really enjoyed this book in all it's dirty and raw ways. It was emotional, confusing and very intense. But what I liked the most is how Belle Aurora remained true to herself and managed to create very funny conversations and inner dialogues in this tragic story.And th [...]
