This Isn’t Over, Baby
By K. Webster
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.
Oh, my, gosh. This is by far the most disturbing K. Webster book I have read to date. Maybe even out of all the books I’ve read this year. Definitely in the top ten most disturbing. Heed the warning, this is not a sweet happily ever after fairy tale. Oh no. It’s dark and demented and morbid. It’s a train wreck that you just can’t look away from.
** You definitely need to read books one (This Is War, Baby) and two (This Is Love, Baby) before reading any further. **
You know when the author makes you feel something for the villain of the story, makes you feel sorry for them and start to understand them when they don’t deserve it at all? Even when they’re a complete psychotic murdering lunatic…. THAT is good writing. THAT is what we have here, with Gabe. We met him and hated him in the previous books. This Isn’t Over, Baby dives straight into what makes him tick the way he does, why he has the issues he has. It’s brutal and heartbreaking.
Then there’s Hannah (Bailee’s daughter). And if she isn’t Gabe’s match made in heaven I don’t know what is. She is even more psychotic than he is. Yes that’s possible. She seriously needs to be locked up and the key thrown far far away. She kills and she likes it. She craves attention and sex like one breathes air to live.
“His words should disturb me. But you can’t disturb the disturbed.”
The two of them become so infatuated with each other in a really sick and disturbing, unhealthy way. It’s a father/daughter type relationship with a twist. You think you know what’s what, who’s who and K throws a curve ball at ya.
“Besides…” His lips quirk up into a wolfish grin. “Even a dream couldn’t keep me away from you. Some nightmares simply won’t die. Some nightmares will haunt you until your last breath.”
Words can’t describe some of the things these two do together. I was a little shocked at certain times and that’s hard to do in a book for me. K. Webster, you freak! But I loved it so much, it’s dark and way way out there. If you can go into it with an open mind and like stepping out of your comfort zone – here you go!
My rating: 5/5 stars
