Blog Tour: This is War, baby by K. Webster (@KristiWebster) Stacy's review & Giveaway! @IndieSagePromo
Well that was interesting. When I first started to read this book I was immediately turned off because pretty early on, you learn that there is a father figure that is the focal point of a young girl’s infatuation. I felt like I was reading with one eye open and one eye shut. And I knew I was going to be disturbed, but I kept going anyways. I just said to myself—as long as there is no “Daddy” talk going on I’ll be fine. And thank god for that being the case, because I really wanted to keep going.
I’m not gonna lie though, some parts were hard to read, and even harder to imagine. Baylee is only 17 years old and some of the things she goes through are truly devastating, but once again I kept going. And I felt a little guilty for wanting to go on, because this Gabe guy was not my favorite person. And if you are sensitive to abuse, rape, sodomy, human trafficking, and anything involving an older man with a younger girl, you might want to go in very open minded. Because I promise things get so much better.
Then we have War, or Warren who is just about the weirdest dude on the planet, but at the same time extremely endearing and you just want to figure him out because he isn’t just a little paranoid or have a slight ADD problem. He is full blown psychotic. I’m talking PTSD, Anxiety, OCD, Suicidal, and he’s also severely delusional, which might scare off some people, but Baylee finds him to be a puzzle of sorts and wants to help him. She quickly realizes that his problem isn’t just something that he’s had since birth, but that it was brought on by something extremely traumatic in his past. And slowly she begins to break him down.
This part of the story I really loved. This guy, this poor tortured soul, who has monsters in his head, just wants to be normal, he just wants the madness to stop. He feels so lost and alone and yet, with Baylee around he begins to see the light. And at this point I was completely falling for him, and I started to see him the way Baylee did. He’s a true gentleman, and a hot one at that.
And just when everything seems to be perfectly coming into place, BAM! Cliffhanger!! And I’m cool with cliffhangers but this just came out of nowhere, and I actually yelped out loud because I had no clue that was coming! And there are still SO many unanswered questions! When I was done I immediately went on a search to find out when the next book comes out, and PHEW, only a couple more weeks. I think I can hold out that long, hopefully. This book definitely took me by surprise, and It was just so different and unique and extremely entertaining, I could not put it down.
