5 Stars
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.

ARC received from author for an honest review

It have been waiting for this book since I first found out about Twitch at the end of Dirty.

And wow, has Ms Aurora given us one heck of a comeback!

In fact, she had me at "Hey, Angel" right to the very last word.

There is so much going on in this story, however I feel it is one that you need to dive right in blind and experience it all for yourself.

We are taken on an emotional rollercoaster as the story progresses, and at times I didn't know whether to scream at my Kindle or cry big ugly tears.

Raw: Rebirth was everything. I can't wait for you all to read it.

Twitch is back!

You need to read Raw and Dirty before reading this last book in the series!
Do NOT read this review if you haven't yet read them!

Six years have gone by since Twitch 'died' and left Lexi and A.J. behind.
He's been watching them all this time, but it was/is just too dangerous to reveal himself. There are still some very bad people looking for him, and the law might also have something to say about his missing years and his business dealings before he died.

But now he's back - not yet all officially, but he's back.
And we can't wait to see how Lexi will react - will she be mega-mad? Or just über-happy?
And we can't wait for all those amazing daddy-son moments!

But of course there will also be some very exciting and dangerous moments until we can finally ride off into our happily ever after sunset with our three darlings!

EEEP!! Finally!


I already started crying in the first chapter/prologue. And I think I cried all through it until ... did we finally get a happy end??? I'm not telling you that of course!

This book was HUGE. I wanted to finish it in one day, because I just had to know how their story would end, but I also wanted to slow down to enjoy it for as long as possible! And it took a while to read, because it's just so long! I LOVED THAT!

The story was adorable, heartbreaking, sweet, dangerous, exciting, scary, frustrating, funny, sexy ... so full of emotions and heart and hope and ugh. Perfect finale for this amazing series.

The one tiny thing I still don't like and I don't really understand ... what was Ling's purpose in this series?? This could've been a great series without that woman. I know she's been through hell and mayyyyybe she deserves her own series - I can totally see her being a bit 'nicer' and getting a happy end with the Turk - but nobody needed her in this series - she could've been cut out of it and these books would've been so much better! BUT - she's in here and it wasn't all that bad ... some of her moments were really adorable even! LOL! I might've also shed a little tear for her ... plus also ... we might need a bad guy for those dangerous and exciting moments I mentioned before. ☺

I loved reading this book!
I cried a lot - Twitch coming back to his family and fighting for his happily ever after is giving the reader ALLLLL THE FEELS!

The only things other than Ling I didn't love in this story? The writing or rather the talking of the guys? Does it just now in this 3rd book sound like Belle is a huge Black Dagger Brotherhood fan? Or has it been like that in all three books? I can't remember. But the way Twitch talks? Straight out of a J.R. Ward book sometimes! ☺ Also - the leaving-out-the-first-word-in-a-sentence thing he does when talking? I hate that!!!!
And then toward the end? The suspensy part? If this were real life? How could they all be so stupid? DON'T READ THE NEXT LINES IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE SPOILED! How can they be so stupid to sit around the house waiting for Ling with 10 armed people and at the same time let A.J. and Molly go to school on their own? Ridiculous! Plus - if Twitch were real, he would've shot a GPS tracker somewhere under his son's skin! Jeez. The people in this book would probably run up the stairs in a horror movie or yell out who's there if they hear a sound from the kitchen! ☺
And Lexi got on my nerves a bit! She knows why he left and what he went through! Why is she so mean to him the whole first part of the book? Ugh! Women! ☺
Ha! Another thing I just remembered. I hate it when I read a book and there are people in it from previous books! This time it was Nox and Thiago - but his book is still coming. But why put all the people in a book when they're not part of the same series? At least call it a spin-off then. I really hate it when I have to go back to read a book that should've been read before the one I'm reading at the time. Authors need to make a note about shit like that somewhere! I'm too OCD about reading orders to overlook things like that.
Ugh, now I wrote a whole huge paragraph about what I didn't like - sounds like I hated the book!
But I didn't!!!!! I loved it - the story was really amazing! So emotional and fun and sweet and ugh. READ IT!!!!

RAW: REBIRTH was the perfect finale in this amazing series! Adorable, heartbreaking, sweet, sexy, exciting, beautiful. I loved it! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Twitch - he'll be sold out in no time!




Belle Aurora is thirty-something year old and was born in the land down under.
At an early age she fell in love with reading. Boredom one summer had her scouring the bookshelves at home. She stumbled across Sandra Brown’s Breath of Scandal and fell in love with romance.
Having been brought up in a loud and boisterous family of Croatian descent, she developed a natural love for dramatics and laughter. Only some years ago had she discovered a new love.
Humorous romance novels.
So many authors had opened a brand new world where she could lose herself yet feel safe and at home in their stories. Belle has been known to become a screeching banshee while anxiously awaiting their newest titles.
Belle never thought she would write. It had never interested her until recently. Friend-Zoned began to form and in February this year Belle typed the words Chapter One. And she fell in love.
With words.
With writing.
With a creative imagination she never knew she harbored.
