Blog Tour, Rachel's Review: This is War, Baby by K. Webster

This is War, Baby by K. Webster 
Publication Date: February 29, 2016
  Genres: Contemporary, Dark Romance

  This is War Baby FRONT ONLY

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.
Warning: 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.

Rachel's Review~
oh holy shit!
They say all's fair in love and war, but what would they say about kidnapping, rape and selling sex slaves?
This is War, Baby starts with a bang.  Baylee, a 17 year old high school student is all about sex.  She's come into her own and she loves to flaunt it.  She has a boyfriend Brandon, whom she loves, and she has a sexy neighbor, Gabe, who she flirts with and turns on.  Yeah, now come blatantly states in the synopsis that this is full of dubious consent, with strong sexual themes, what do you think is gonna happen?  Didn't you, as a randy teen, have that taboo crush on your teacher, neighbor, or family friend?  I can't be the only one, right!  Shoot, even now, at 44, I have that odd little flutter when I see one of our sexy customers at work.  Whew... I'm married, not dead!
So, Baylee is kidnapped, right from her house! Of course, she knows who it is, and boy, was she wrong about could he do this to his friends daughter?  While this was dark, and dubious consent? no, I'd say no freaking consent whatsoever...until it becomes about how good he makes her feel...and how she makes him feel.  Even though he is going to sell her he tells her repeatedly, that he will be back...Just as soon as he can, he'll come and get her and they will have their happily ever after (at least that's what he thinks).
Baylee, scared shitless, is walking on a stage, all nervous, counting her steps, which draws a particular persons eye.
I know I'm synopsising the book here, and I HATE doing that, but I just want to shout that it's not all dark and dangerous.  There is beauty found in the oddest places.  Love found amidst the scars and turmoil. And fear...just waiting for the other shoe to drop...
K. Webster writes a FANTASTIC story here.  I absolutely LOVE her dark books.  Her characters are so well thought out.  There's no wishy washy heroine here.  There's only abused, scared, nervous and strong. War is amazing. To continue to live amidst the savagery that his mind battles with EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY DAY is amazing.  And to WANT to be like he used to be..that's what love does to you.
But come ON!  To leave me hanging like that?  Thank GOD it's not for long...
The cliffhanger is AWESOME...I LOVE a well done cliffhanger and it can't get any better than this!
