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?
Not always.

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.

 Book review: 6 “War + Peace” review


A huge part of my soul, heart and mind has just been stolen forever from me. And, honestly, I couldn’t be more happy. War and his Peace, Bay, worth every part of me simply because they are amazing and like nothing I have encountered before.

This Is War, Baby is the first installment in the War & Peace which tells the spectacular, heart-captivating and unique love of War and Bay, or his Peace as he calls her.

Everything starts when Baylee is stolen from her home and loved ones to be sold in a slave ring for the highest bidder. There is more to her situation though. Her captor is someone she knows really well and his plan just starts from selling her. While in his hands, Baylee starts to lose the girl she was and gets on the path to become a woman who is tough, determined and a fighter. And when she meets War, everything she knew about herself and thought she was, is getting upside down.

The connection they develop is instant and deep. Souls that were half and when they at last met, they recognized their soulmate to the other and reached out to it so they can be whole again. Both Bay and War, through the obstacles, difficulties and fears they are forced to go through, they get to experience True Love; the kind that is soul-sucking, absolute, powerful, magic and only a very small percentage of the people on this Earth has the luck to find and live. At the same time, they learn more about themselves and find the strength to overcome any fear, bad memory, injustice, etc that haunted them until now. You can’t get a more perfect couple and love than this.

He looked at me like I was the sun in his sky.

But, although I adored and devoured this book with my whole being, it also gave me one of the most gross, disgusting and hardcore scene that I have ever read. And I have to say that after that, my perception of the cucumbers have changed f o r e v e r! I will never see a cucumber again the same way and without a shiver and nausea run through me. I’m completely ruined after that specific moment.

And What. An. End! Damn! I felt a significant part of me die with that last sentence. I couldn’t believe my eyes on what I was reading and it was happening. I was knocking on heart attack’s door after that and now I am the proud owner of a quite strong book hangover. :p

Dark romance was always my favorite genre. It always was pulling me in deep into its hooks. And K. Webster definitely knows how to write one hell of a dark romance story. The darkness that she surrounded her story, combined with the powerful love of War and his Peace she created, made me unable to resist to it and thirsty for more and more. What they product when they are together is awesome and overwhelming. Webster’s writing is undoubtedly one of the best I have ever encountered.

I can’t recommend this book highly enough. It’s perfect for anyone who loves a love with a generous dose of darkness. Just bear un mind that this book – and definitely the This Is Love, Baby too – is for strong stomachs, minds and hearts. But whoever can take it, then you don’t want to pass this gem.
