REVIEW – THIS ISN’T OVER, BABY (War and Peace, #3) by K. Webster

TIOB FRONT ONLY FINAL

SYNOPSIS:

They’d won the battle and I held up the white flag of defeat…
But the war wasn’t OVER.

I suffered the aching loss of what they had stolen from me.
OVER and OVER again, my heart broke.
The white Queen and the black King had taken OVER the game
and ruled for what seemed like eternity.

Until one day, eternity was finally OVER.

I was the dark knight who would rise again and conquer.
I was the man who would win OVER the most important piece on the board.

A slayer. A protector. A father.
A new king with the blackest of hearts.

And head OVER heels in love with…
The little princess who owned my twisted soul.

Sometimes the villains don’t just want their happy ending…
They demand it.

This isn’t OVER, baby.
This will never be OVER.

Warning: This Isn’t Over, Baby is a dark romance. Strong sexual themes and violence which could trigger emotional distress are found in this story. This story is NOT for everyone.

This was definitely the most f’d up installment of the series so far, and I absolutely LOVED it!! I enjoyed it so much and got turned on so many times I lost count. There may be a visit to a therapist in the near future for me because I don’t even know how I could actually have fallen for a completely deranged psychopath like Gabe, but I did!! K. Webster, again, had me seeing the villain in a different light. This book will give you insights into the man who has been a living nightmare in the previous two books.

We thought we had seen the last of Gabe towards the end of book two, but when we get to the last couple of pages we learn he had been saved by a doctor who lives just down the beach from War and Baylee. He’s been living with this lady for the past two years and all the while he’s also been spying on War, Baylee, and especially their daughter, Hannah. Gabe believes Hannah is his daughter and is biding his time until he can be a part of her life. Nearly seventeen years later he will get his chance.

Gabe may just have met his match. He even seems to be the more rational character as opposed to Hannah McPherson. She takes crazy to a whole other level! These two are a modern day psychotic version of Bonnie & Clyde! There were times I even felt kind of dirty for enjoying the very steamy bits of this story!!

What I didn’t expect was to develop a soft spot for Gabe, but this is his book and we are made privy to all that transpired during his horrific childhood. You’ll understand how the monster was born, and we learn that present day Gabe is motivated by his need for love. I found that I could forgive him for all his past sins and there will be some surprising alliances made.

Hannah, on the other hand, I wasn’t too big a fan of. She was definitely a very unstable young woman and I think that it was Baylee’s horrific experiences with Brandon and Gabe while being pregnant that doomed the life of Hannah. I’d blame that more than her having inherited anything from War since all of his idiosyncrasies developed after he witnessed a traumatic event. His problems were born from circumstances rather than being genetically inherited. I never really felt any pity for Hannah because the girl didn’t have one redeeming quality.

This is a seriously twisted and addictive series! I think it is simply a masterpiece!! After finishing this last book, I know I would read anything by K. Webster. She has brought me over to the dark side and I may never return!!

THIS ISN’T OVER, BABY is available now. If you crave a twisted dark read, then this is definitely one you will not want to miss!!

*****Dee’s Review*****

4.5 Dark Angel Stars*****

(ARC kindly provided by author in exchange for an honest review)

Disturbingly good. Be ready, because this book is not for the faint-hearted. This story will make you crazy with lust, dizzy with all the angst, and desperate for more.

I started falling dangerously in love with this author’s brilliance with the first book and by this third installment of the War and Peace series, I was craving the dark excitement she gives us readers, with every fiber in my body.

Because villains need love too, right?
Well in this book this statement is taken to a whole other level. Gabe who we know as the crazy, kidnapper from the previous books is the center of this new story. We learn more about Gabe’s past and about the events that happened in his childhood that shaped him into the man he is. I really enjoyed reading those chapters about his early life because while dark and brutal, they give his character humanity. The guy I had despised in the two prior books was a victim in his own right, and not that it excuses him from his foul behavior, but it certainly makes you understand the story better.

Gabe had been living close to his victim for years now, watching her family and especially the little girl he believes to be his, Hannah.

Years later Hannah is almost eighteen, her whole life she’s felt out of place and misunderstood by everyone around her. She’s not like other girls her age, she’s broken, unhinged, the chemicals in her brain make her think and act in very wicked ways.

If Gabe was her mother’s punisher in the past, now he becomes Hannah’s dark angel, one night saving her from a terrible situation. The brutality of this event bonded these two characters, in what will become the start of a very provoking relationship.

This book had me so twisted that I felt like if I should be reading it in secret, constantly looking over my shoulder, as if I was afraid I’d get caught doing something illicit. The things that happen in this book are very dark, bloody and downright sinful, yet I loved reading it so much.

It’s very impressive how this author made me love these crazy characters, especially Gabe. I had so much disdain for him, but the more I read, the more I craved his wicked ways.
I will crown author K. Webster the queen of the dark and wicked. Hail to the queen!!!
