My War was over and I had lost. My captor reminded me I was nothing more than his pawn.
His strategy never changed…it was always me.

But what he didn’t know was that LOVE always wins.

In my War, I’d found not only peace
but LOVE as well.

I’d been through a battlefield with my War and LOVE was what brought us to the other side.
Our LOVE was beautiful and pure. Undying.

After finishing 'This Is War, Baby', I couldn't wait to jump right into this one. I absolutely loved the first book and after that cliffhanger ending, there was no way I could've stayed away from this follow-up. Unfortunately, this time around, the story didn't have quite the same draw for me.

There were parts of this book that I absolutely loved, mainly those surrounding the evolving relationship between War and Baylee. I also appreciated that all my questions were answered and I was given some

I was super excited to jump into this sequel and find out what the heck is going on outside of the love bubble that War and Baylee have created for themselves that was brutally shot to smithereens by Gabe in the prior book. There are so many great quotes that I highlighted but sadly once the addition of one huge plot twist was incorporated I struggled to take the rest of the story seriously – change in a character over a four month course,

Well I really liked this book. So much more than I did the first one. Which surprises me because after the first one didn't meet my expectations I didn't have high hopes for this one. I only read it to see what happened thanks to the cliffhanger from book 1. I'm glad I read this one. It was so good and dark that I would have given it 5 stars but I took a star off for Brandon. I just couldn't buy into his trip to crazy town. It was just to out of character, too ov

Tears burn my already irritated and swollen eyes as memories from our time together flash by me. My heart has shut down and my brain has taken over. Memory after perfect memory of the man I loved flit by like a horrible slide show meant to mentally torture its victim. I’m that victim—a victim of my own memories. They slay and cut me with each passing thought.

Damn. This is gonna be hard to review without spoiling - and, well, I'm not sure how I feel about a few things - actually, I am pretty sure how I feel about it, I didn't like it - at all. The direction the author took a certain character in, did not work for me - not one bit. Maybe my expectations were way too high...

This is Love, Baby picks up where the previous book left off - War and Baylee are in both in dicey situations, and I was anxious to see how things played out. Unfortunately the

Wow, this book has been so difficult for me to review. I decided to sleep on it, and I'm still having a hard time getting my thoughts bare with me here. It was definitely different than what I thought it was going to be. I absolutely loved the first book, This is War, Baby. It is easily one of the best books I have read all year. It left me wanting more, and expecting so much. I couldn't wait to dive into the next book.

Originally, I wanna give 3-4 stars but SOMETHING happened that didn't live up my expectation and too bullshit. I didn't feel it like a plot twist. It was more like a shitty facts.

Time to show them I’m not a pawn. I’m the motherfucking queen. This is war, baby. And I will win.

I'd read This is War, Baby completely off a friend's recommendation and devoured it. After the mother of a cliffhanger, I was pleasantly surprised, and pleased, that K Webster wasn't going to string us along forever waiting for this dramatic conclusion. Luckily, I only had to wait a couple weeks- and this second book did not disappoint!

Answers will come, but before all the answers Baylee will have more questions.
Baylee will be lost in her despair, abducted once more by her worst nightmare while her true love is forever lost.

But Baylee is not a naïve kid anymore. Now, she is prepared:

I could give a full list as to why This is Love Baby flatlined, but I'm going to spare you the details. With that being said I give high props to the author and her amazing style of writing. This is one of those books you either love it or hate it, so I don't discourage anyone from reading. Your views may differ from mine, so by all means go ahead and give this a chance!

This is Love, Baby is the concluding story to the War & Peace series. This is series is the type of series that once you are finished reading, you want to reread again. It’s engaging, gripping and a mind-trip. It’s exactly the kind of suspenseful book I look for in a read.

This is Love, Baby begins where This is War, Baby ends. Baylee is kidnapped from Gabe again and we question if War is dead or alive. I’ll have to say this book is for the Gabe fans. I love Gabe. He’s the s
This second book was absolutely awesome! I was on the edge of my seat more than once! I said it in my last review and I will say it again... I’m so glad I have finally started this series! I’m dying to get started on book three! So away I go!

After that cruel ending in This is War, Baby, I couldn't wait to grab in my hands the continuation of the series. The moment This is Love, Baby landed on my device, I couldn't focus on anything else. I just needed to know. I just needed to read it!

With a big amount of suspense and mystery surrounding the events of the book, we slowly got to the end of the tunnel. Admittedly, I didn't expect the turn of events in this book. We had some surprises and some things that personally speaking I had tota

Jesus. I can’t remember a book that left me this speechless. After the way This is War, Baby ended, all I knew was that I needed this book. I can’t even tell you a single thing about this book – it has to be experienced. But I will tell you that I loved it. I loved how dark it got, how twisted it all was – but make no mistake this was a love story. The light in this book blinded the moments of pure darkness. It was consuming and once I started I could not stop.

This book drove me insane! I was so happy to continue on with Baylee and War's story, to find out what was going on and how it was all going to end. I needed answers to all of the questions the first book left me with. I loved parts of it, but thought other's parts were a bit over the top. Overall though, I was once again pulled into this book not able to stop reading until I reached the end.

I got an ARC for this bad boy, thank gawd because I was literally dying when I finished the first book, since it left me with many theories and questioning my sanity.

This is love, Baby, is just as fantastic as the previous one, but I have to say that This is War, Baby, is the one who owns my heart.

K Webster, did not disappoint. Being into the world she created for these characters was pure fucked up bliss. Once I started reading, I could not stop till I finished. And oh boy that ending, she jus
We start exactly where the previous cliffhanger left us. Baylee is once again in danger, and the bad guy has won. We all forgot about the player left injured on the field in the previous book, until he comes back with a vengeance. Once again we are left confused about who to root for.

The Good:
1. This installment is more action packed. Always something is happening.

2. Most of the questions about Baylee's family are answered in this installment.

3. The weird chemistry between Gabe and Baylee is sti
