I've been waiting for this book for what feels like forever. It was a great read, but it took me a long time to get through it. It's a long book with a lot of information, and I felt like sometimes the story had me hooked, other I felt like it stretched out a little. What I disliked the most were the many POVs I realized that I skimmed through a lot of them. And I have to say AJ POV confused me a little bit...because it was written in the third person.
But that being said, I loved the angst, I loved the action, I loved the small family that the story created and most of all, I loved Twitch, his hardcore exterior, his demands and most of all his devoted love to Alexa.
There was something about Lexi that bugged me, and I wonder if I went back to read the first book I would feel the same. I loved her strength and her maternal instincts. I didn't like all that much her apprehensions but that might be because I'm biased because Twitch is EVERYTHING 🖤🖤🖤🖤
There isn't much more to say aside from READ THE BOOK!!!!
Wow! I just finished reading Raw:Rebirth. It was definitely worth the wait. What a colossal amount of work. Well done Belle. I enjoyed every page and absolutely couldn't put it down. I'm really curious about the new characters introduced and I'll be looking to see if there is a story about the other ones. 10 stars!!!
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.
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!!
Oh, where to begin with this epic story. We have been waiting, it seems, in real time, for what happens when Twitch and Lexi are reunited. You won't be disappointed, and you won't be bored. This isn't the same relationship they had when they were together before. This is new, this is edgier, yes, edgier, and more volatile, yet more settled, then what they had, before Twitch died.
It isn't easy, for Twitch or Lexi, because the memories of before, the memories of the time apart, it has shaped them. More scars, more pain, more experience, and they are different people now. Their friends, same thing. Not everyone, or anyone, is happy with how things played out, but they did, and now they do. At the heart of it all, Twitch and Lexi can't deny their attraction, anymore now, then they could before.
As painful, and as heartbreaking as parts of the story are, there is the undeniable heat, the raw sexual attraction and tension between them. It still scorches, and comes off the pages at you. It is stronger now, the emotional bond between them, makes it even sexier, and dirtier.
Twitch and Lexi have been through a lot, and it isn't over yet, may never be over, but one thing is sure by the end of this book, whatever happens, they will face it together, strong than ever!
I don't think any review I could write would do justice to how I felt about this book. When I found out Belle was writing a third book I was like a kid at Christmas waiting for my special gift, I so so excited. I re read Raw before reading this one to reacquaint myself with the book and the characters; I had forgotten just how much I had enjoyed Raw and especially Twitch. So onward and forward and into Raw Rebirth I went, and WOW it was sooooo much more than I expected. I can honestly say I am in awe of this book, I'm in serious love with the man himself - Twitch and the whole scenario they find themselves in.
Twitch and Lexi finally get to finish their story but not without lots of drama and nail biting moments along the way. I adored how the relationship between Twitch and Lexi was explored and developed even more than Raw, this was a different Twitch; don't get me wrong he was still that sexy damaged bad boy we all came to love but with more heart this time round, he's developed more with Lexi's help, he grew a pair if you like, he is just a gorgeous man to read about. Lexi, well she's my girl. Strong, loyal, with a heart as big as the moon; if you would want anyone in your corner it would be Lexi. And then there was AJ, oh my this little boy stole my heart nearly as much as his Dad did. Such a sweetheart, he was a little man with a grown up head on his shoulders, so cute.
All in all we get all the characters from Raw on board; Julius, Happy, and the notorious bad girl Ling, and a few new faces as well. A fantastic story which will at times have you on the edge of your seat biting your nails down to the quick and hold your breath moments when your heart will literally skip a few beats and some of the most wonderful heartwarming moments that made my heart full. Add some of the most erotic sexiest scene's from the delicious Twitch and Lexi which will leave you fanning yourself and asking yourself where can I go get a Twitch; chapter 20 alone is worth its weight in gold, oh your so in for a treat !!! With endless excitement and anticipation like no other, with so many twists your head will spin, this book is the BOMB !!!
Thank you Bella Aurora so much for writing this book, it has given me so much pleasure, but truthfully I actually cried when it ended; I really didn't want to let them go.
Don't miss reading this phenomenal book but a word of advise - re read Raw again first and soak in it, then go and immerse yourself in this book next and if you haven't read either - what you waiting for, go one click NOW !!!
