4.5 Thug Life Stars

You know I am so Thug Life…NOT. I am the farthest thing from Thug Life. I am so white bread, teacher, married forever is it pathetic. I wear, or wore when my kids played ball, the shirts that said “Baseball Mom”. In rhinestones. With a baseball for the O in mom. Totally NOT Thug Life. More like Car Pool Life. But I can read Thug Life. And love it.

This book is not an example of how extremely talented K. Webster is! This is the least innovative book I've read by her so it was frustrating, knowing how much more she is capable of. Ignoring all of that, this was an entertaining read.

Read, read, read ... Oh no.... Ohh holy crap .... Ahhhhhh

This was a great read!

The characters were so strong and came to life right in front of your eyes. It's like watching a movie as you read the book. I love that feeling of sinking right in and seeing nothing around you or hearing anything but the words.

Love and Law by: K. Webster
Review by: Chelsea Carter
Rating: 5 stars!
K. Webster does it again with Love and Law! I have been reading Webster’s books since she first released Broken. Love and Law is the story of Maya and Ben, an undercover detective and a drug dealer. Maya had a rough childhood, after witnessing her father’s murder by drug dealers when she was nine, her mother leaves and she grows up with her aunt. Maya and her partner, Miguel are best friends and when Maya goes undercover alone

Holy book devour, Batman!

I'm already a fan of this author, but since I've only read darker style books from her and she's released a whole bunch that aren't quite that dark, I figured I'd dive straight in. I was no disappointed in the slightest!
If there was ever a book that was a forbidden love style book it was this one. On the one side you have the law, and the other, the criminal. When the law is sent undercover, the very last thing she expects to happen is to be swept away into one hell of a

K once again has written some pretty awesome characters. Maya, strong, fierce, independent, loyal, beautiful, smart ass, she's a female cop and she prides herself in being the best, even if the men don't like it. Miguel, he's sweet, sexy, and smooth, he's also Maya's partner... Sometimes he thinks in more ways then one.. In order to keep the great friendship they have she has to keep the line drawn in the sand and let him down easy when he crosses it. But when Maya is called to do under cover AL ...more

This was a pretty good book. There's danger, secrets and love.

Maya was nine years old when she hid under her bed as her father was murdered in her home. Seventeen years later, Maya and her partner Miquel are two of the top cops that play a major role in cleaning up Detroit's streets. She is now faced with her most challenging assignment so far. The plan is for Maya to go undercover and attempt to get in with the local drug dealers to catch the guy in charge. Maya never expected to fall head over

While I did enjoy reading this book it was not without its flaws. The h is supposedly one of the best detectives in the department but acts like a rookie cop. Her behavior right from the beginning was immature and unprofessional. There was no depth to this character. The H's grandmother was ridiculous. No one who goes to church as much as her and does not allow cursing will be ok with her grandson having sex with a woman in her house. Plus, her reaction to discovering the H's secret was pretty u ...more

You know when you find one of those authors that you buy everything they write and you keep waiting for the day that they will write something that you just don’t like…..well this is not that day for Kristi Webster!! Holy crap every time I read one of her books I swear that I couldn’t love her anymore but she just keeps making me more and more of a fan.

I really liked this forbidden romance concept! It was interesting and kept my attention. Also, reading about the undercover drama was intriguing. My only concern was that the romance happened really quick which just isn't my thing.
A Cop who fall in love with the criminal

I Love love love loveeeeee this book so much! It was unexpected from the start. I keep the wrong guessing and it so damn much fun about it!

Erin's Review
If you want a fast paced, hot book about a misunderstood drug dealer and the cop who falls for him, this is your book.
Maya is a ball of fire. She's feisty as hell and isn't afraid to tell everyone what's on her mind.
Ben means well, he really does. He's sexy, sweet and dangerous.
Ben and Maya together are HOT! They fall hard and they fall fast. Ben is hell bent on protecting Maya and Maya is hell bent on doing her job. She just never counted on falling in love.

Maya - after hearing her father being murdered as a little girl she knew she wanted vengeance. All grown up and a detective she gets handed a huge undercover case. Can she do it? Will she be able to bring down a drug ring or will someone make her forget all about her job and her vengeance?

Pac - Lost both his mother and father at a young age leaving him to live with his amazing grandma. Turning to a job that will guarantee money for him and his grandmother, can he continue along this path or will
Well written and edited stand-alone story with no cliffhanger. 3.5 stars.

A number of reviewers have commented on the weaknesses of this story -- namely the plot and the pacing, which left this story unrealistic. The technical details of this crime/suspense romance weren't handled in a sophisticated way.

The book needs to be longer so that tension and believability can build. That said, the characters were interesting, the story had good potential, there was legitimate heat, and comedic relief via

So good I read it all in one setting!

Love and Law drew me in from page one. Ben and Maya were perfect for each other and I completely related with both characters. Life on the streets selling drugs is not an easy life, not one I've ever experienced, but through Ben's eyes I did. I thought of Tupac when I read this and I was glad to see that K Webster used two of his quotes, they really fit this story especially since Ben's nickname is Pac. I loved that Maya was a kick pass detective and didn't t

Completely taken by surprise with this beauty! I'm not one for "gangsta" slang and such, I mean I don't even listen to rap, but this book was perfect. Grammy and her prayers just was the icing on the cake. Pac & Maya really were the definition of two wrongs that make a right and they fight perfectly together. Didn't give it 5 stars cause I wish the epilogue went a little further in the future. But it was a great book!!!

Guilty pleasure!

Loved it! Maya and Ben are HOT! The book was great, it had the action, the adventure, the pervy dirty cop, the double crossing best friend, the ultimate villain, and one steamy couple that shouldn't have fallen for each a loveable rolled magazine wielding granny that curses when she prays for outrageous things...So good!

Loved this little fast paced book, K Webster never disappoints with her books and this one was no exception.
There's scorching chemistry between the characters, aswell as a good dose of humour. I found Grammy hilarious, I laughed out loud at some of the things she said.
I'd recommend you give this book a try.
Great little read, couldn't put it down...loved it.

Favorite quote:

“Let’s just say if her prayers come true, you’ll stay in jail until you learn your lesson, Maya will have a miraculous recovery and be pregnant with your child, and I’ll ‘get married to some young thing that will produce lots of beautiful Mexican babies.’”

Love Grammy!!!!!

This is a more of a 3.75 star rating. I liked the idea, I liked the characters, but I felt that maybe more emphasis on the "case".. Maybe take a little more time for Mia and Ben to evolve into their relationship would have made it an even better book.

I was really hoping for interracial relationship in rhius story and was a but disappointed when I got something else. . .
Well, the story was still fresh and hot. A bit an insta-love for my taste, but still good reading.

This book was decent just a little too predictable. I would have given this 3.5 stars if I could. It's always nice to read about a woman in control only to lose some of that to love. SPOILER ALERT! I was disappointed that she didn't get to end Oculus' life since he killed her father.
