Raunchy is a heartbreaking story of failed mother and daughter relationship. This was the first book I read by Author T. Styles and definite would not be the last. This book was so good it was hard to put down.

Cornell Phillips is a well known drug dealer, married to Estelle along with their five year old daughter. They live in quiet estate at Concord Manor. When at the tender age of five, Harmony is abruptly taken away from her home by her scorned mother, her world is rocked. Without her father'

Wow T. Styles! Raunchy was...a jaw dropper! This book displays horrible parenting in many ways. Harmony was not only mentally but physically abused as a child, which caused her to abuse her own children. She was never showed how to love or really had anyone that showed her any affection, other than the men that she was involved with. All of these reasons allowed her to become the selfish, abusive, and raunchy person that she had become. I would have loved to see Harmony evolve in this book but h ...more

Raunchy is the story of Harmony Phillips. Harmony starts off as a sweet and innocent little girl who loses it all when her mother takes her away from the lap of luxury. From then on Harmony is introduced to a world of sex, lies, and alcohol. Suffering from the abuse her mother and Grandmother inflict on her, Harmony begins to spiral out of control.
I gave Raunchy by T.Styles a well deserved 5 stars. The story was heartbreaking with the stories of abuse, pain, and suffering.Can't wait to see wh

I love T.Styles writing!
This is my first T.Styles novel that I ever read and I enjoyed it. I loved that this story is told in different POVs so its very important that you pay attention to everyone mentioned through out the story.

Harmoney is the worst person ever, I understand that she had a hard life growing up but I feel she didnt have to take that out on her own children. Now her children have to pay the price for her bad parenting.

Kali is the worse of his kind, he is beyond evil and I felt

It was an okay read. I really didnt get into it like I thought I would. It never really takes me this long to read a book. My friends raved about it but it was just okay for me. I'm going to read part 2 but not really looking forward to it.

This was an exceptional urban story! I thought T. Styles provided a well written story with all the elements involved to make a true urban fiction tale. The storyline had a gripping, gritty spin & the characters, although horrific, seemed so real. I felt the abuse & misuse Harmony experienced as a child especially from her uncle & grandma was despicable & disgusting and only made her a more disturbed adult. Her actions--including having sex with a plethora of men to portraying he ...more

This is deep and don't judge the book by its cover. It is one of the most heart wrenching book I have ever read. You need to have an open mind to read this.

Couldn't get into it. I do not enjoy reading about child abuse. Also i prefere "cleaner" language. Guess it's too raunchy for me.

I need to look up the definition of raunchy! All I kept thinking is this book is very disturbing! But I couldn't stop reading to find out the why's, what's, who's and how's. It kept me intrigued. The first part of the book I didn't know if I'd make it through because of the level of disturbia it had me in but I figured it had to get some what less disturbing as the story carried on. I'll be reading the rest of the series to follow along on Harmony, Jace, Kali and the twin's lives. I know it will ...more

"Raunchy" was a good book. It seemed very rushed in the last ten pages. Alot of information to take in in a short amount of reading. I can't wait for the second book. I enjoyed all the twist and turns and the development of the twin sisters from the middle of the book until the end. Although, I knew 75% in that there would be a reason why the girls were soooo different and I was correct. T. Styles did an oustanding job with this story, IMO.

Kudos to T. Styles for a great read although entertaining, this book was a little to far fetched and over the top for me, but then again most fiction books are. My heart went out to some of the characters in this book but it was one that I hated which almost made me hate the I thought I'd humor myself and download part.2. It's just that I'm nosey like that and want to at least find out if there are any inspirational parts or ending.

I feel sick for actually liking this book lol It was sick, not for the weak stomach or overly-emotional. It was good though! I was hooked from the beginning. definitely a page turner. I wasn't feeling the ending though. I see Harmony as a victim more than a bad person so I am curious to see what is going to happen to her in part 2 and how she got to the mental hospital.
