About the Book:


Special Forces soldier and medic Walter River would give anything to snatch more than a few seconds of down time to see if he can rattle the no-nonsense and incredibly hot Dr. Lloyd he’s protecting, but dodging explosions, snipers, and student radicals who’ve unleashed a lethal bio-engineered microorganism have made that almost impossible. Maybe he’ll get a chance—if he can figure out how to keep them both alive.

CDC microbiologist Ava Lloyd races to find a cure for a bio-terrorism organism sweeping El Paso. The few stolen moments with her very hunky bodyguard River have been explosive, but no matter how alluring he is, she can’t afford to get distracted. The clock is ticking, people are dying by the hundreds, and once this crisis is solved, they’ll both be off on their next assignment, thousands of miles apart.

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Dark Romance

Purchase: Amazon | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AUS | Nook | Apple | Kobo

***This is the seventh and final book in the series. First six books must be read in order to fully understand this story line. THIS STORY IS A NOVELLA AND SHORTER THAN THE REST.***

They say the king is the most powerful piece on the board.
However, they haven’t met me.
This queen knows all the rules. She plays the game better than him.
In my game, the queen can knock the king right off the board.

Game over.
The END.

But, I love him.
The darkness threatens to make me lose sight of my strategy from time to time, but in the END, love always prevails.

Problem is, my black king is playing by a different set of rules. His END game is one he shields from me. It’s a game he plays closely with the white king, the most brilliant player of all. Together, they want to END my game.

They want to END me.

This queen doesn’t go down without a fight.
This queen makes her own rules.
This queen will outsmart those who play against her.

This is the END, baby.
In the END, I am going to win it all.

This is the End, 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.

Review by Paula:

K. Webster has done it again! The perfect ending to this series! Very emotional roller coaster and that extra kink like every book to this series does. No spoilers here so this book is hard to review without giving anything away but if you have read the other six books of this series it starts right off where the last one did. I’m really sad to have this series go. We dealt with heartache, shocking things, angst and messed up love and so much more. I fell in love with the crazy guys and even the crazy woman of this series that I’ll miss them deeply. This is the end baby, but in my eyes it’s never the end because these books are ones I’ll never forget. 5 cucumber stars

REAL SEXY by Meghan March

Real Sexy AMAZONIn Nashville, country stars are a dime a dozen.

I swore I’d never get caught up with one, but Boone Thrasher made a liar out of me.

I said I’d never put my heart on the line, but he didn’t ask before he stole it.

Now we’re facing my worst fears, and we’ll see if this country boy is tough enough to see it through.

Girls like me don’t get happily ever afters… but maybe he’ll prove that wrong too.

Review by Paula:

This is the conclusion to Boone and Ripley’s story. Boone is bound and determined to fight and prove to Ripley life can be a happy ever after. Ripley doesn’t think she deserves anything good in life but will Boone prove her wrong? Will Ripley finally realize she’s not like her family at all? Angst and drama in this book and shocking details near the end that make this book perfect end to there story. 4 Stars


Review by Candy:

Well it seems that Boone has worn down Ripley in this sequel. Things start becoming real for Ripley and she’s just not sure about her feelings for Boone yet because why, she’s scared that it’s all gonna end because that’s her luck. Boone is excited that Ripley is starting to feel for him the way he feels for her and willing to wait for her to catch up to where he is with them as a couple. Ripley’s troubled past comes back in way that makes her want answers that she may not want to know….. Other than Ripley’s past surprise there’s another but you’ll have to read to find out.
Meghan great duet series loved both the bad boy Boone and the kinda hard ass Ripley. When you brought these two together you made a complete set, each one is the opposite and that makes them click. Your writing flows from both sides and you still keep the reader very interested. A must read. 5 Stars


Real Dirty AMAZONI have everything a guy could want—a new single burning up the charts, more money than a simple country boy could spend, and a woman I’m planning to marry.

Until she doesn’t show up for my proposal.

The life I thought was so perfect, isn’t.

The guy who thought he had everything, doesn’t.

I’ve got my heart on lockdown, but life sends me straight into the path of a mouthy bartender who puts me in my place.

Now the only place I want to put her is under me.

I thought I was done with love, but maybe I’m just getting started.

Someone once told me to never live with regrets.

I tried.

In every piercing look, I saw the truth.

In every heartwarming smile, I found a friend.

With every kiss, I fell in love.

In every heartbreaking lie, I learned forgiveness.

In every shattering mistake, I achieved redemption.

With every moment of hate, I gained strength.

Every moment became a memory I will cherish forever.

But what if my One Regret

is being One Second too late?

Stuck in a dead-end relationship, Erica Bennett finds herself daydreaming of her first holiday romance. She was fifteen, it was exciting, new and full of possibilities…and Jack Lawson was hot as hell. That kind of thing leaves a mark.

So when her friends suggest a girls holiday to Luna Island, it’s exactly what she needs to take her mind off things. What she doesn’t expect is to spot Jack – a much older, hotter version of him – across the hotel lobby.

Their attraction is still there and it isn’t long before sparks fly, but fifteen years is a long time. They aren’t the same people they were back then and besides, it’s only a week, right?

Is it a second chance at something real or will their excess baggage ruin their shot at love after they leave Luna Island?

Review by Paula:

Erica is stuck in a relationship she doesn’t want and when her friends tell her they should all go for a getaway Erica agrees. What Erica didn’t plan on was seeing her first love there Jack. Erica met Jack when she was 15 her first love and heartache and now there both grown up! Will they reconnect or will Jack and Erica make it a just a getaway romance since they both have separate lives? Will they both tell each other how they feel? Great second hilarious chance romance that will have you laughing and swooning at the same time. 4 Stars
