Review: This is War, Baby by K. Webster
My life had a plan. Until he invaded it and stole it all away. My captor took me and I became a pawn.
His strategy changed and he sent me away to WAR, because money is everything in this world.
In my WAR, though, I found peace.
I couldn’t help but find love where I least expected it, with a man who lived a battle every day of his life
…all inside his head.
But then my captor came back for me.
Yet, this time, battle lines had been drawn and I was protected.
So we thought.
Even though my WAR was raging,
my captor would fight to the death.
The good guys always win, right?
All’s fair in love and WAR, right?
Not this time.
This is War, Baby is a dark romance. A really dark one. So dark you’re going to wish you had a flashlight to see yourself to the end and someone to hold your hand. Human trafficking, dubious consent, and strong sexual themes that could trigger emotional distress are found in this story. This story is NOT for everyone.
*** 3-Star Review ***
I was really looking forward to reading this book! I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. After reading K's last book, I knew I had to read this one. I live for dark and dirty books.
This book is definitely not a book for everyone. It's raw, dirty, twisted and deranged in the most delicious ways. It left me in such a messed up frame of mind, I wasn't sure if I really read what I had just read.
If you are looking for one of those reads that is so messed up it will leaving you staring at the wall considering a reread just to be able to devour it all over again. This book will definitely push your boundaries and make you question your own sanity.
The only downfall for me with this book was the dialog. Sometimes dialog runs smoothly between characters that you forget you are reading a book... and sometimes, it just doesn't. For me, there were a few parts in the book where the dialog was off and felt forced. This isn't normally an issue, but considering the plot and scenarios in this book, it made it harder for me to get the desired, full effect of what the author was telling me. However, I am a tougher one when it comes to books, so do not take this one little thing from me as a sign not to read. This is definitely a book I would hate for someone to not read.
