When K Webster goes in for the kill, she slays you lifeless. Needless to say Webster nailed it with Little Hoodlum!

Let’s get those formalities out the way first.

If you have not been introduced to Hood River, what have you been doing with your life??? You need this series, you need this book!

Jordy, I fell for that big guy in Hood River Rat. You couldn’t not do it. His loyalty is one of the many qualities I admire from him. What he does to protect those he cares for still lea

"Little Hoodlum" is the second installment in the "Hood River Hoodlums" series and should be read in order. Told in dual POV, 1st person, it’s a friends-to-lovers story, angsty and emotional with dark elements. Although I enjoyed Jordy & Roux’s story, I’m saddened by what the author did in this book, with what happened to Gio & Sidney and especially with what happened at the end to one of the Hoodlums. It wasn’t fair and I liked him. It made me so mad at Char. I don’t know what will be ha

The end of May has brought with it strings of disappointments. After my last read, also disappointing, I was really hoping to love this book. That, unfortunately, did not happen.

This book takes place about 3 years after the events of Hood River Rat when Jordy, one of the Hoodlums and Roan’s friend, is released from the jail where he was kept for killing several men. Roux, Roan’s little sister, has always had a crush on Jordy and Jordy is attracted to Roux ever since she

Hoodlum for life!!! I wanted Jordy’s story when we met him in Hood River Rat and now I am totally smitten. Love him!!!

Jordy believes in family and loyalty. When Roan and Roux were threatened, he stepped in and saved them. Anything for family, including serving time.

It’s been three long years without him, now he’s back and his best friend’s little sister is all grown up. His Little Hoodlum is now a beautiful young woman. He’s always loved her, but now that love is more.

3.5 stars.

This one picks right up from book 1, so don't jump into this story if you haven't read book 1. It is NOT a standalone.
In the prior book, Jordy made a huge sacrifice to keep Roux and Roan, ending up in jail. But when he sees they are still endanger, Jordy works to regain his freedom. It's been 3 years and his best friend's little sister Roux isn't so little anymore. Jordy had been working so hard to keep her at arms length but as she is almost 18 years old, he is fighting a losing battl

NOTE: I don’t think this series is a standalone series. Yes, each book focuses on the journey of two distinct people, but the hoodlums are a unit. They are a brotherhood that stand together. Always. I think you will do yourself a disservice if you do not read all the books and, in the order they are published. Just my two cents. Do with them what you will …

You guys … these kids are addictive! Their friendship/bond is all consuming, not just to them, but to me. I am in deep and I do not want anyo

Waiting is torture. Hiding is killing us. All of it is necessary.


PLEASE NOTE: Although this is considered an interconnected stand-alone, it is better experienced after reading Hood River Rat since some key events throughout that story set this one in motion.

My first “true” introduction to K Webster was also coincidentally my first intro to a true MM romance in Hood River Rat, the first installment of this series. I fell in love with her writing style and the characters, most of all Jordy. I kne

I haven't found a book by K Webster, regardless of the genre, that I haven't thoroughly loved. Little Hoodlum lives up to my high expectations and continues the trend of fantastic books from K Webster. It's been a while since a book kept me up reading all night, but this one did!

Book two in the Hood River Hoodlums series. In Little Hoodlum we get Jordy and Roux's story. It has all the feels and is full of tension and forbidden love. Jordy has always protected Roux but while he has been away she

I picked up Hood River Rat by K webster a few weeks ago knowing only that it was m/m and not too dark.
As you know I prefer my books dark and dreadful but, hey, this is K webster we’re talking about so of course, I read it, lol.
And I’m so glad I did.

I often find that books with teenagers and high school are just way too gentle for me.

Another book that had me neglecting my chores and kept me up late reading! I love all of these characters; there’s something about them that has a hold on me!!! I have nothing but positive things to say about the story, my only complaint (as always) is the editing... In book #1 Roan was always cracking his neck, yet all the guys are doing it in this one, even characters Roan never met. It was so repetitive that I went back and counted: male characters cracked their necks 13 times!!! In addition, ...more

So this was a weird one. Up until 80% I really liked the story, and then it all went downhill. Jordy and Roux have always loved each other as family. When he went to prison she was 14 and he was 17, with the age difference they had never looked at each other romantically. Jordy killed someone (and went to prison) to protect her, and during that time he refuses to see her or her brother. When he gets out instantly that connection is romantic, but because she was seventeen and he was on parole
Life hasn’t been kind to Roux, her childhood was stolen by the woman who gave her life who also took her happiness away rather than providing for her. Thanks to her brother and Jordi she could find hope and some happiness. Roux had to grow up before her due time but for everyone she’s always little hoodlum.

Jordi would do anything to protect those he loves and when it comes to put his life and freedom on the line to protect Roux and Roan he doesn’t esitate. Little does he know while he’s wrongly
Jordy’s story is here. If you’ve read Hood River Rat then you’ve met both Jordy Martinez and Roan Hirsch’s little sister, Roux. These three were so close until Jordy changed all their lives with one action. Jordy always felt protective of his best friend’s little sister but when he comes home after getting into some trouble 3 years prior, he never thought his little hoodlum would have grown up so much. She is involved with some bad people. Can he protect her while keeping his hands to himself? H ...more
This was damn good. What I loved most was the pace. So many things happened at once. It was overwhelmingly interesting. Read this series.

Whoa...this baby got intense, not that I’m surprised considering all that happened in the first book, but man, lots goes on in this baby (Outside of Jordy and Roux’s relationship) that definitely kept me on my toes and turning those pages until the very end.

I loved Jordy and Roux. Jordy definitely frustrated me with some of his decisions, but he is a good man who protects those he loves, even if it could be detrimental to his own heart. Roux is a force. She loves hard and is l

There is so much going on in this book. This review might be all over the place.

Jordy just got out of prison for killing 4 people years ago. Why did he kill 4 people? He was protecting his best friend and his best friends little sister. He got out early because everyone knew what he did was the right thing. But Jordy has to be careful to not mess up again for he could go back to prison.

Jordy and Roux are everything 🥰

After Jordy goes to prison for killing four men to stop Roux from being raped in book 1, he refuses visitors for 3 years.

When he realises that Roux is dating the brother of a gang leader, he goes into overprotective mode and sends her a letter telling her to cut contact with her boyfriend.

When he gets out of prison, he realises that he’s being over protective because he’s attracted to her and has feelings and the book goes from there.

Little Hoodlum is book 2 in the Hood River Hoodlums series. This is the first book that I've read in a couple months. Typically I read daily so this has been a long break. What a great book to get me reading again though. This was the perfect choice, because Wow!! This book has it all. There is some romance, some suspense, a bit of a taboo relationship, some violence, lots of love, loyalty, mystery and more. Overall, I'd say this is contemporary romance with some dark undertones.

This book takes place 3 years after the last one, and there are a lot of things that have happened.

Roux is now 17, and she has a good friend who has just become her secret boyfriend. The problem is that he's not all that good a guy. Jordy, who went to jail for her, has written her a letter and told her to get away from him, but she doesn't want to.

I think that it was destined that Roux and Jordy were going to be together. I never thought that it would be an easy journey, because, well, this is

K Webster did a great job on this story. Little Hoodlum had a strong well written plot that was packed with so many emotions that'll take you on a rollercoaster. The plot was strong, so wasn't the characters. Nothing about Jordy and Roux's journey was easy, they had many ups and downs, their relationship may have been on the forbidden side but they were made for each other, they've always been drawn to each other. The connection, their attraction was strong and their chemistry was steamy. They w ...more

This series has made me cry made me mad among other feelings. With Jordy book I think he is one amazing guy. The guy has a heart of gold. For what he did for roax and roan. He's a protector.

Roux is in love with Jordy and he starts to see her in an all new light. However he can't be with her will she is underage.

The gangs are still in play in this book and give Jordy no choice but to be under their thumb again.
