Title: Dirty
Series: RAW Family #2
Author: Belle Aurora

My marriage seemed perfect from the outside looking in.
People envied me. They wanted my life, wanted to be me.

Mrs Alejandra Gambino.
Wife of Dino Gambino. Daughter of Eduardo Castillo.
Respected. Loved. Mob royalty.

They had no idea of the horrors that lurked behind closed doors.
They didn't know I was at the lowest point a person could reach.

Enter Julius Carter.
Aloof, handsome, blue-eyed Julius Carter.

He saved me.
I screwed him over.

Now everybody was after me. My life was forfeit.
It was only a matter of time. I was a dead woman walking.

The question was, who would get to me first?




You know what I hate? I hate reading a book and stumbling on something that is a trigger for some people. I didn't have a problem reading that the heroine and another woman were raped more than once in this book, but I know some people will mind. I got mad because I know things liked that should always be mentioned and I feel like it's my duty to say so. I don't want anyone to go blindly and read the book. Plenty of people die, but that is to be expected.

I thought I had read RAW. Turns out that I didn't. It didn't have an effect on me though. I am glad I didn't because I would have cried a lot. Also, I would have had to wait 2 years to find out what happened to Twitch. No thank you. I was disappointed to find out in the end that this book has finished, but the story would continue in a third novel. So in a couple of years I will find out if these characters will get their happy ending. I hope Ling (I hope that's her name at least, I didn't care enough to memorize it ) doesn't. I hated that woman and I never got her. I feel a little bad about her because she went through some very rough situations, but I would have expected her to be on Alejandra's side.

Twitch is a part of this book. Some chapters are from his point of view and he is trying to fix things in order to go home and to Lexi. I wanted to see that reunion, but I will have to wait. I didn't know him, but I yearned for him to go back to his family.

I didn't know what to think about Alejandra. She was putting on too many masks. The only thing I know about her for certain is the fact that she is a fighter and a survivor. Julius might be killing people, but he had a big heart when it comes to family. I liked that about him.

I will read the third and final book in the series because I want to see what happened to Alejandra and Julius and also because I would like to see how much hell Lexi will give to Twitch before he manages to fix things and convinces her to give him a second chance. If you have read and loved RAW then I would recommend the book. For the people who haven't read RAW I would say that you should proceed with caution.


Belle Aurora is twenty seven years 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 humor. Only some years ago had she discovered a new love.

Humorous romance novels.

Kristen Ashley and R.L. Mathewson 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 2013 Belle typed the words Chapter One. And she fell in love.

With words.
With writing.
With a creative imagination she never knew she harbored.

Friend-Zoned is the first in the Friend-Zoned series. Keep an eye out for this cheeky author.
