There are few people in this world I thought I could count on.
My brother. My two best friends. And him.
Problem is, Jordy thought protecting me was his sole mission in life.
He gave up everything for me and my brother, including his freedom.
Losing him left me hollow and empty.
But after three long years, I’ve learned to live without him.
Until I get mixed up with a guy who has dangerous connections in Hood River and everything begins to crash down around me just in time for my senior year of high school.
Possessive boyfriend with a penchant for violence.
Best friend turned enemy.
Fights with my big brother.
Everything’s a mess and I’m not sure there’s any fixing it.
I might just need that bully ex-convict who’ll do anything—again—to keep me safe.
All I want is peace, happiness, and love.
And I won’t go down without a fight in order to get it.
I’m a Hoodlum after all.
They call me Little Hoodlum, but I’m not so little anymore…
This is a full-length high school friends-to-lovers, forbidden, and new adult romance with high angst, suspense, and gutting emotion. It’s book two in the Hood River Hoodlum series that will have interlinking storylines. Little Hoodlum shouldn’t be read as a standalone and is the continuation of a four-book planned series that gives each Hoodlum a book. The first book in the series is the only MM story. The others, including this one, are MF.

So, I guess you could say that K Webster can do no wrong, in my eyes. She literally slays anything and everything that she touches! Little Hoodlum is absolutely no exception!
After book one, I was highly anticipating Roux and Jordy’s story! Little Hoodlum had me so excited and on the edge of my seat. I was turning the pages so quickly just trying to devour the story. It was wild and raw, it was heartbreaking and all consuming, and it was so painfully wonderful!
So, we all know Roux from the first book. *Seriously, if still haven’t read that book.. Go! Now!* Roan’s little sister, the one person (besides Hollis, of course) that he will go do anything for. There is literally nothing he wouldn’t do for his little sister. In fact, all of the hoodlums protect her with their lives. She’s the little hoodlum, after all! Roux has had a crush on Jordy since she was a little girl. She’s spent three long years without him, but now he’s home. She knows what she wants and she’s willing to wait to get it.
If Jordy would give me the time of day. I’d let him do whatever he wanted to me. With Jordy, it feels safe. Comfortable. Like home.
Jordy, Roan’s best friend and pretty much brother since he sacrificed his own freedom for him and Roux. He’s so fiercely loyal and protective over everyone that he’s close to, especially Roux. Even though he knows he can’t be with her, he’s starting to feel like him and Roux are a little more than just friends. Roux feels it too but she’s still only seventeen and his best friend’s little sister. Despite that, their connection continues to grow. Jordy can’t risk losing her all over and going back to jail for being with a minor. He loves her too much to lose her, again. He’s willing to wait a few months so that they can be together.
“You can’t run.” He turns me in his arms so we’re facing each other. “I’ll always find you.”
Sooo many obstacles for pretty much everyone in the friends group. Jordy is caught up in gang activities, as an unwilling participant. He’s trying to protect his best friend and his sister. Roux is struggling with her best friend who seems to be in a lot of trouble, and no one can actually figure out what is going on with her. Plus, an obsessed teacher and a boyfriend who is in a gang. Everyone in this group deserves their happily ever after!
“You’re here with me now,” he murmurs. “You’re mine. Don’t forget that, Roux. When all feels fucking overwhelming, remember us.”
The connection they have is real and forever. The love they have has no boundaries. Jordy is a tough guy who wears his heart on his sleeve for the ones he loves and it’s so easy to swoon over him. We got to catch up with Hollis and Roan because they appear throughout the book, as well as our other favorite hoodlums and side characters. I’m so invested in the hoodlums stories. I can not wait for book three, Campfire Chaos!
