Raze was the book upon hearing the synopsis that I wasn’t sure if I actually wanted to read. I don’t always do dark. I have to be in the right mood. And when I started this book, I wasn’t in that mood. But I pushed through. Not because I made myself do it but because I needed to do it. It grabbed me. Pulled me in. Took me under. Deep down, I needed to read this book. And I am so glad I did.
This book did things to me. I know that I’m going to have an enormous book hangover from it. Even though it is dark and rough, it is a beautiful love story. A story about a second chance at love but like you’ve never read before. This book is so different. But in a such amazing way.
This beautiful love story includes one broken soul, Raze, and Kisa, a women who never gave up loving the one she lost. And I’m so afraid that I’m going to give away so much that I have to tell you just to read the synopsis.
Tillie Cole outdid herself with this book. She took me way outside of my comfort zone but made it ok. Because she can write anything. And is amazing at it. It blew me away with how well she wrote this with it being so totally different from any of her other books. She goes from writing about a curvy girl from England and a movie star to an English girl falling in love with a football star to writing about an MC and cult life to writing dark suspense about two souls torn away from each other. She is all over the place in what she writes but it works. Raze made me realize that I would read anything and everything Tillie writes because she can do it all and make it amazing.
“They were always meant to be together, one boy and one girl, two hearts split into two, sent to far-off lands on their own. For God wanted to see if true love could be tested. He wanted to see if two halves of one soul could find each other again, even against the odds.”
