Review: This is Me, Baby

This is Me, Baby This is Me, Baby by K. Webster
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love books by K. Webster. Really and truly, she is an automatic one-click author for me when I'm looking for a dark, twisted, mindfck of a read. That being said, this installment felt a little anti-climactic for me. Hey, people don't shoot me because as I said, I'm a super-fan. It just wasn't as twisted as I had expected. My brain didn't explode. I actually had very few "WTF" moments. Go figure. However, I particularly enjoyed everything to do with Daddy Diego. My fascination with him is so fcked up because he was nowhere near a good guy, but he definitely demands attention. I wonder what his role will be in the next book.

With Part One, I was still left devastated. What I had hoped was some sort of crazy dream sequence at the end of This Isn't You, Baby was unfortunately all too real. My heart was broken. You know you're fcked up when your heart hurts so bad over the loss of a fictional drug lord. Tee hee, call me nutso! Anyhoo, Brie has been trying to claw herself out of her despair and I loved how Gabe was there to offer his unconditional support. See, he does have a soul, at least for those he cares about. Unfortunately, as sympathetic as I was to Brie, I still didn't like her all that much. However, I can respect that she was perfect in Ren's eyes. For Ren I will continue to accept and respect her. Kinda.

I fell more in love with Ren in Part Two. It was impossible not to because he was that incredible. He was incredibly sexy, incredibly understanding and compassionate, incredibly protective, and incredibly loving. His inner thoughts drove me bananas because they were mostly about the "wonderful" virtues of Brie, which I really couldn't see. Then again, I'm blind when it comes to anything good about this girl ;) Half the time I just wanted to knock her out. As much as I adored the heck out of Duvan, he in no way compared to Ren. And yet the comparison was forever being made! Yes, Duvan loved her but the life he was offering her was in no way a good one. Not yet anyway. Besides, she knew and loved Ren for so much longer. And he was there first. WTH???!!! Annnnddd... I was really getting tired of her being referred to as "tigress". She ain't that fierce, bruh.

Part Three was as expected: a thrilling lead-in to what I expect will be much more mindfckery in the next book. I'm glad that everyone seems to be on the same page but I'm terrified of the unknown. WTH are Oscar and Esteban gonna do??? I can't hardly wait to find out!!
