Review of Raw: Rebirth by Belle Aurora

It had been six years since my world was turned upside down.
He exposed me to the darker side of life and I could never go back to the person I was.
I had been through more things the average person couldn’t even relate to.
If I had the chance to go back and do things differently though?
Not a chance.
I’d pick him a thousand times. A million times. For eternity.
I guess not much has changed.
My name is Alexa Ballentine, and I am still in love with my stalker.

When I got this book in my hands... When I realized that the story of Twitch and Lexi was finally going to see light again...


I won't even front. When this story landed on my kindle, I was scared. I wanted to read it so very badly, but I knew once I did, that that would be it. I think when I finally cracked this bad boy open, it ended up being my slowest read in a long time. That's not to say the story was slow. OH HELL NO!! It's because I was reading very slowly, trying to savor every hook, nook and cranny that these characters wanted to bless me with. I didn't want to let go so I made that goodbye drag on for the longest time.


I just couldn't help myself. It may have taken awhile to get here, but Belle Aurora gave me all I needed and more. This rebirth gave me what I expected, but then it took it up another notch. It was one hell of a send off and although I'm going to miss the freaking hell out of these characters, I'm content with our goodbyes.

You either rolled with the punches or got knocked the fuck out.


I'm not going to lie to you and say everything was perfection. While this story constantly hit me in the feels, I did get aggravated QUITE A BIT by Lexi. She worked my last nerve, but I guess it was necessary to push the plot. I guess. However, she did inspire me to write a post about single mothers and fathers rights. As a social worker, you'd think she'd know all of that. I'm just sayin'.


Is it weird that despite all of the deplorable, disgusting, demeaning, and downright dirty things Ling has done that I came to have a bit of sympathy for her character? It was literally the teeniest bit but I learned so much about her that it was hard NOT to see where she was coming from. I obviously didn't agree with her thoughts, behaviors or actions, although they did make me laugh my big butt off, but I felt like I got her. I think the author did an amazing job of humanizing this woman 👏👏

So we've reached the end of this incredible journey full of loss and love and pain and beauty and the joys that life has to offer and I'm an emotional wreck. However, the author introduced quite a few characters that I'm hoping will make another appearance in the future. I definitely wouldn't be opposed to getting more Twitch. That man is EVERYTHING!!
