#Review #NewRelease – Manipulate by Pam Godwin

Tula Gomez is in the most ruthless prison in Latin America.

She only drove to Mexico to help her sister. She did nothing wrong.

But her quiet life changed in an instant.

To survive the violent, cartel-controlled prison where men blend with women, she pledges her loyalty to the notorious leader in exchange for the one thing she needs most.

Protection.

When she agrees to seduce the suspicious new inmates, Martin Lockwood and Ricky Saldivar, she doesn’t expect to enjoy it. Sure, they’re gorgeous, irresistibly alpha, and insanely talented with their hands and mouths. But they’re the enemy. She can’t fall for them.

Torn between her cartel loyalties and two men who want her as deeply as they want each other, she questions who is manipulating whom. Her search for answers leads to a passionate ménage, a soul-crushing secret, and an impossible choice.

Genre → Dark Romance (anti-heroes, human sex trafficking, cartel)

Series → Each book is a different couple. No cliffhangers. Must be read in order.

MY REVIEW

Manipulate by Pam Godwin
Tula, Ricky, and Martin
I’VE BEEN TO HELL AND BACK
5 Stars

Holy freakin’ Moly!!! This was crazy hot! I’ve only read a handful of books like this, well not actually like this.. what I mean is like two dudes and a girl. I experienced just about every emotion a person can. It pulled on me, making me want more, and leaving me sated.

Tula is definitely one of the toughest female characters I’ve ever read. My God, the shit this woman went through and survived. Her heart is strong and huge.. she’s my hero in every way.

Ricky and Martin… bwahaha, funny “Ricky Martin” are such complex characters. They seemed to be polar opposites even though their past would dictate otherwise. I just love how Pam writes broken characters. She makes you feel like these characters are YOUR friends and you empathize for them like your caring actually matters and/or helps them. I just love these guys!

The supporting character cast was not very big.. just a few villains. Knowing Pam and how she writes the bad guy, I was shocked and some what satisfied with these characters and they’re turn of events.

Every time Pam sits down to write a book I wait patiently anticipating dark shockingly beautiful Stories. She never disappoints. She pours her heart and soul into every page, of every book, of every series. And they just keep getting better and better and better!!

It didn’t take me very long to read this book, probably because I couldn’t put it down! The pacing is perfect, the storyline is divine, and the writing style is impeccable as always. Loved it!!!

DELIVER SERIES

Each book is a different couple. No cliffhangers. Must be read in order.

DELIVER SERIES
•DELIVER #1 #FREE
•VANQUISH #2
•DISCLAIM #3
•DEVASTATE #4
•TAKE #5
MANIPULATE #6


DELIVER, Book 1: FREE on all retailers

His name was Joshua Carter. Now it’s whatever she wants it to be.

She is a Deliverer.

She lures young men and delivers them to be sold. She delivers the strikes that enforce their obedience. She delivers the sexual training that determines their purchase price.

As long as she delivers, the arrangement that protects her family will hold.

Delivering is all she knows.

The one thing she can’t deliver is a captive from slavery.

Until him.

And her stubborn slave thinks he can deliver her…from herself.


VANQUISH, Book 2

Her life is like a prison cell.
A self-made, to-hell-with-the-free-world existence that locks from the inside.
Stop judging. Her agoraphobia doesn’t define her. It simply keeps her safe.

He belongs in a prison cell.
The 6×8, make-me-your-bitch variety that locks from the outside.
But he’s free. To hunt. To take. To break.
And he just found a sexy new toy.

Capturing her is the easy part. Her fucked-up mind, however, makes him question everything he does next.
But he’s a determined bastard. If all goes his way, this will hurt like hell.


DISCLAIM, Book 3

Camila was seventeen when Van Quiso kidnapped her. Ten years after her escape, the shackles refuse to release her. Not while there are still slave traders preying on her city.
She will stop at nothing to end them.
Even if that means becoming a slave again.

Returning to chains is her worst fear—and only option. They won’t know who she is or what she intends to do. She’s prepared for every complication.
Except him.
The one who decimated her sixteen-year-old heart.

Matias is charming, gorgeous, and dangerously seductive. He’s also untrustworthy and enshrouded in secrets. After years of no contact, he finds her—on her knees, wrists bound, in the clutches of her enemy.
Will he sabotage her mission by needlessly saving her?
Or will he keep her in chains and never let her go?


DEVASTATE, Book 4

“What is the price you’re willing to pay?”
“Money isn’t an issue.”
“I’m not talking about money.”

Tate is on the hunt to find his best friend’s sister.
Eleven years ago, Lucia Dias was abducted. Presumed dead. He never met her, so why does he care?
Some might call his efforts noble, but his motivation is more perverse, bordering on obsession.

When he follows a chilling lead to Venezuela’s Kidnap Alley, what he finds is neither a corpse nor a captive.

Amid poisonous lies and crippling depravity, the price of love is devastation.
And he pays.
With his body, his blood, and her life.


TAKE, Book 5

He’s a notorious crime lord, a kidnapper, and an artist.
Scarification is his outlet, and he just captured a new canvas.
Kate refuses to surrender beneath his blade or the cruelty in his beautiful eyes.
But she’s drawn to the man inside the monster. A man who makes her ache with his touch. Who owns her with his kiss.
A man who worships her as deeply as he hurts her.
She can run, but there’s no escape from a bond carved in scars.
