The king in my world fell and a new one slid into place.
He wasn’t just.
He wasn’t FAIR.
He was cruel and hateful and twisted.
But I had this black king figured out.
Or so I thought.
The game became complicated because my black king had some new moves and one of those involved my heart. Hope trickled in for the briefest of moments.
That is, until my black king and my heart sided against me. Those two didn’t play FAIR. They used me as their pawn in a bigger game—a game I didn’t know how to play.
The laws changed. I didn’t play by their rules anymore, for the queen makes up her own.
I am not a pawn.
I am not theirs to use and abuse.
I belong to nobody.
There are new players on the board and they don’t play FAIR either. But the white king does know how to treat his queen. And together, they will make them pay.
All’s FAIR in love and war, right?
Definitely not this time.
This Isn’t Fair, Baby is a dark romance. Extreme sexual themes and violence, which could trigger emotional distress, are found in this story. If you are sensitive to dark themes, then this story is not for you.
Worldbuilding: This story takes place mainly in Columbia, in and around Diego’s home.
Characters: The main characters in this novel are Diego Gomez and Vienna
“Vee” Berkley. Vee is nothing more than a pawn to the people who kidnapped and tortured her, but little do they know, she is going to do everything in her power to triumph over them all. Vee has an inner strength that captivates even the most ruthless men but none are worthy of her until him. Being with him is like being alive for the first time. Even though he’s dark and twisted something inside of him calls to her and she is helpless to answer the call. But nothing is what it seems and the men from before will stop at nothing to get her back. Being pulled into two different directions would be tough for anyone but for Vee one side means life and the other means death. Choosing between the two is more difficult than she ever anticipated especially when one means the revenge she so desperately seeks. Can Vee carry out the retribution that these men deserve? Or will Vee get swept up in a game that is much more dangerous: love?
Plot: This story is about Vee and how she goes through so much devastation and heartache, that when she is able to make it through, she is a queen in her corner of the world. She may not want or need help but it doesn’t hurt when her so called captor becomes her protector.
Writing: This novel is written in first person points of view of Vee, Oscar, and Diego. It is the sixth novel in the War & Peace series, and the first five books must be read in order to understand this novel.
Curb Appeal: I love that each cover features one of the main characters on the front and it makes the story more real. The blurb barely gives anything away but after you read the novel the blurb makes way more sense and you can connect the ambiguous dots!!
Ultimately: I loved, loved, loved, this installment in the War & Peace series! Vee went through such betrayal and torture, that she really deserved her happily ever after! I cannot wait to read how this series ends with the novella coming out soon: This Is the End, Baby!! I really can’t believe how convoluted, crazy, and amazing this series is, and what an incredible ride it took me on! I wholly recommend reading this series and getting sucked into to all these characters’ stories and falling in love with them!!
I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
