***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.
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.
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.
HOLY CRAP TWITCH!!!!
What the hell did I just read?
This book…I…I…I literally have no words.
First of all dammit Belle Aurora stop making me cry when I read your books. I get all invested and I’m oohing and ahhing and laughing and even fanning myself then BAM! You go and make something happen and I’m bawling.
Just STOP IT!!
So yea I love Twitch.
He’s scary. Maybe one of the scariest characters I’ve ever read. I don’t even want to know how Belle Aurora comes up with these characters. The woman is either a genius or needs serious help.
I mean how do you fall in like/love with a book character that’s covered from head to toe in tats. Runs around stalking people. Obviously does super shady stuff. Doesn’t give a damn and makes no apology for not giving a damn. Is cold oh so cold and brutal. The violence….he just exudes hate. He’s not kind. He’s not loving. He’s not even honest. On the outside there is absolutely nothing to like about him.
But I love him and I want to hug him and kiss those tattoos. Maybe make him cookies.
Belle also has amazing female leads in her books and I’m always so happy about that. They usually are super independent, smart, and strong. They’re witty and pretty and you just can’t help but like them. I’m starting to think that Belle puts a lot of her own personality in these ladies. Lexi is no exception. She’s been through her own struggles and came out on the other side with a good head on her shoulders. She’s not whiny. She’s not shallow. She’s just real.
That does not mean Twitch is perfect for her or vice versa. Well maybe not vice versa. I think Lexi is probably exactly what Twitch needs. But he doesn’t care so it doens’t matter.
Yes this is not your conventional love story. It has way more than one shocking moment. There are times you will squirm. There are times you will sit with your eyes bugging out of your head wondering what you just read. There are times you may feel mushy. But please don’t ever feel safe. Don’t ever let yourself get comfortable.
Twitch is not easily tamed. In fact he may never be tamed.
But I love him nonetheless. Just like I fine myself loving everything Belle Aurora writes.
