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 isn’t over, by a long shot! Before I start ranting and raving over This Isn’t Over, Baby, let me make it clear that is isn’t a standalone book. You REALLY should read This Is War and This is Love, the first 2 books in this freaking incredible series, War and Peace. This Isn’t Over, Baby is number 3 in the series. Okay, ranting and raving begins…. NOW!
Any book that comes with the warning: “This IS a love story. This IS a dark story. This IS a story about the villain. Villains need love too……” is a book I want to read. I love dark! It’s NOT for everyone. Not EVERYONE can handle dark. People who give poor reviews on dark books because they don’t like the subject matter, shouldn’t be allowed to read dark. You can’t handle it, bwahahaha! Luckily for us, K. Webster is one of the new Masters of Dark. I bow down to you! TIOB has surpassed the first 2 books in the series.
The story begins with the villain in Book 1, Gabe. He was such a hated, flawed character. We learn about his his past and why he turned out to be the obsessed, sick man he grew up to be. One almost feels sorry for Gabe. Almost.
Gabe has watched Balyee, War, and Hannah for years; living close by and obsessing, one might say, over the happy family. Hannah is growing up and spreading her wings. She’s still a teenager and very naive. She’s put in a very dangerous situation one evening and finds an unlikely hero in Gabe. As the story evolves, we find out that Hannah is not as innocent as she seems. She’s a very troubled young lady, with demons of her own. It doesn’t take long for them to realize they are kindred spirits.
“I love you, sweet girl, too much. A love like this will eventually kill one of us.” “I hope it’s me then. What a way to go…”
What happens when one is obsessed with someone and THAT person turns the table and becomes obsessed with THEM to the nth degree? This is a récipe for disaster. Oh, and what a delicious récipe it makes! Where Gabe was once so obsessed with Baylee, to the point of madness, he gets a taste of his own medicine with Hannah. Be warned, there is much to be shocked about; blood and mayhem is the least of it. And yes, there are cucumbers involved, again! Read the first 2 books to know what I mean. No spoilers, but you can imagine.
“Every second with you only binds my heart more intricately with yours. You’re the one who will want to run away in the end. I’m difficult and hard to handle. Just ask my parents.” “I’m difficult and hard to handle too. Seems we were meant to find each other.”
Make no mistake about it, This Isn’t Over, Baby is a love story, an out-of-control, flawed love story. No flowers and sweet walks on the beach or romantic gestures. These two were meant to be. Just when you think a Villian can’t be redeemed, there comes along someone who’s even more evil and twisted. I’ll be waiting for the conclustion anxiously. I really can’t say more, I don’t want to spoil it for you. This is a book to be savored, slowly. I’m a happy glutton, more please!
