REVIEW – THIS IS ME, BABY (War & Peace #5) by K. Webster



The game was over and they stole the victory away from ME.
Cheating. Lies. Corruption. Death.
This pawn never stood a chance.
But then he came for ME.
He plucked ME from my nightmare and kept me safe.

My heart was in tatters and my soul was lost.
Until the beast in ME woke up.
She was hungry and furious and didn’t play by the rules of their game.
We were a vicious team. And we changed the game altogether. I took what was theirs because they took what was mine.
ME against them.

That is…until I had someone else with ME.
Someone who vowed to fight alongside ME until the very end.
I don’t want the love he has for ME.
But the beast in ME still craves to take everything she deserves.
He should run far away from ME.
Instead, he runs straight for ME.

This is ME, baby and I am going to ruin them all.

”What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. They may try to tear our hearts apart…”

“But they don’t understand, our hearts are made of steel. Women like us are unbreakable. Even when we’re shattered into a thousand bits. We just find a way to gather up what’s left, walk into the fire otherwise known as life, and weld our most precious piece back together again.”


The fifth installment of the ”War & Peace” series is the continuation of Gabe’s daughter, Brie’s story. The previous book ends with Brie’s world being turned upside down when a psychopath that had a demented fixation on her, ends up murdering her beloved husband Duvan right before her eyes. Gabe comes to her rescue and now they are on the run in Columbia. Brie is also pregnant and is looking to liquidate her husband’s assets so that she can return back to California and try to lead some semblance of a normal life for the sake of her unborn child. Unfortunately, she seems to have numerous unsavory characters who are after her and she is in constant danger.

Brie is still reeling from the loss of Duvan but when Ren McPherson, comes back into her life, he provides her the solace that she so desperately needs from her nightmares. Their friendship turns physical almost instantaneously and while at first, she seems to be using Ren to get over the emptiness she feels, soon enough old feelings of love are resurfacing. But the young lovers’ lives are not completely blissful as there is always the constant threat against Brie’s life. Duvan’s father, a Columbian drug-lord named Diego, and Ren’s psychotic sister Hannah, all mean to put an end to Brie.


There is a ton of violence throughout this story and it’s what we come to expect from this series. Also, the sexy times are in overabundance and definitely out of this world hot. But Brie constantly being in danger was almost tiring and a bit comical. She had Gabe and Ren as her protectors but those two no matter how strong and psychotic they were seemed to be the absolute WORST bodyguards! They never could keep her safe! At some point, I was over the damsel in distress theme that kept playing on repeat throughout this book. While the sexy times were incredible, I also felt like it was a bit of overkill.

While this was my least favorite of the five books I did enjoy the tender moments shared between Brie and Gabe. Gabe will always be my favorite and I love that he is such a multi-layered and complex character. Even Hannah showed a bit of her soft side in this one.
