Synopsis*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.

Mini TeaserStaring down at my chest, she takes a step closer to me and whispers miserably, “I’m here to let Brad fuck me.” My cheek ticks and head implodes. She steps closer to me to add, “He’s going to fuck me. Fuck me til I forget you. Til I forget I ever met you. He’s helping me drown you out and I like when I’m not thinkin’ about you.” She looks into my eyes and repeats on a whisper, “You’re poison.”
I started Raw the other night and next thing I know it’s the middle of the night and the last thing I want to do is put the book down and go to bed! No matter their attitude, I loved each character. That never happens to me. And even though one (Ling) is a raging b!tch, she is redeemed later.
Lexi has a stalker. She has felt him for a while, always seems to know when he is there. She’s never seen his face; he stays covered with a hood. When she gets home from work one day, Lexi is attacked outside her apartment. It’s her hooded stalker that ends up saving her. He takes her inside and tends to her wounds. Even though she probably shouldn’t, she feels safe with him there. And, since every time she closes her eyes she sees her attacker, she asks him to stay. He calls himself Twitch and he really doesn’t give her much more than that. Not his real name and nothing about him. Just enough that should scare her away but it’s too late. She feels protected, even though she shouldn’t. Even though he’s dangerous and knows he could hurt her, she wants him.
Twitch wants her too. And he wants her to submit to him. Then when she does, he wants to hurt her. She gave him hope. She made him think that at least one person cared about him but, that was a lie. No one cared about him and he was almost killed proving that. That night, changed him. He is angry and he wants to do something about it. So he’s lured her into his trap and the plan is set. And, along the way…something changes. A feeling he’s unfamiliar with starts seeping in. Love. She wants to help him. He knows he needs help but it’s too late for that. Nothing can help him, so there love will have to be enough.
But, there are things that even he can’t control and Lexi is caught in the middle. I’m going to stop here. I’m afraid that if I keep going, I’ll give it all away! I can’t begin to tell you how much I loved this story. It was a great way to end the year. And just like the title, it was Raw. It was dark, dirty, gritty, funny in places and frecking HOT! And, I LOVED every second of it; I can’t seem to say it enough. I hope you love it as much. If I could I would give it 10 stars but I’ll have to settle with 5 heart pounding, in your face stars!!
