About the book:
***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.
I've seen this around on Goodreads and I'm totally curious! I loved Willing Captive by this author, but that story had me cracking up, so it doesn't seem anything like RAW. I'm not normally one to pick up a book when the blurb clearly warns you that there is no HEA (In this one, anyhow. I hear there's a book 2!), but the plot seems to be calling my name. I know it's bad to be excited about a stalker, but I can't help it! I was completely sucked into The Dark Duet series by C.J.Roberts, although, I barely survived it, and this reminds me of that series a little. I've been told it's not near as dark. So, I say: "Bring on the pain!" I just bought it and loaded it on my Kindle, so I foresee some ugly crying in the near future.
I have to say I'm in the same boat as Rachel. I'm really curious about RAW and if I'm still in one piece after The Dark Duet series, I think I can handle this book. Now, the whole stalker thing should put me off, but considering most plot lines are starting to blend and become forgettable, I'm thinking this one will leave an impression. I'm really curious about this book, and I'm eager to give it a try.
