Raw by Belle Aurora

Lexi's childhood was not easy but instead of making her angry as an adult, she decided to help the children and teenagers that grew in a home like hers.  She still remembers helping her young neighbor too.
Lately, she has noted someone following her and when the stranger/stalker saves her, for unknown reasons she feels safe with him.

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.”

Twich has wanted Lexi for a while. He is damaged.

“Monsters don't always lurk in the shadows. Sometimes they hide in plain sight.”

Angry is the best way to described him. At first it seems like he wants to hurt Lexi but soon his attachment to her is real.

“Not everyone can be a fairy-tale hero.” He pauses a moment, then adds, “The world needs villains too.”

I know I'm in the minority but I didn't love this book. I also didn't hate it, that's why this is a 3 Fangs for me. Some scenes are hard to read or to relate to.
Twitch is not a nice person.  His business is shady and he doesn't apologize about any of it. I also didn't understand why he blamed Lexi for the way he was.
Some of the things he did turned me off him.

I was mad at Lexi too for letting herself get involved in certain situations and acting irresponsible and her close friends didn't help either.

I did appreciate the ending. It was different and it leaves you guessing that maybe there is a Raw 2 or there should be one. If there is a second book I will read it too.

“You gotta promise to never leave me. I-I… you just gotta.” Her response is, “You have to promise to try to love me back. What you’re doing to me…that’s not how you treat a person you love, Twitch.” I’ve loved you since you were six. Kissing her once more, I tell her without hesitation, “If you promise to never leave me, I will love you. And be good to you. I’ll treat you like a queen.” My queen. I heard somewhere that a king only bows down to his queen. And I’m bowing down to Lexi. My chest aches. I don’t know if I like this love thing.”
