I try to forget her.
It’s impossible.

Growing up together, Conor and I shared all our firsts.
First love, first kiss, first…
Not all our firsts.

We were sixteen the night she was violently assaulted while I helplessly watched.
I’ll never forget the sounds of her suffering.
Or my inconsolable agony when she left Oklahoma.

Years later, she returns to honor our teenage pact.
Except the boy she loved is gone, replaced by a ruthless cattle rancher knotted with secrets.
She doesn’t know my dark cravings or the trails of sin that lead to her.

I don’t deserve her, but one truth remains.
She’s mine.

MY REVIEW

Knotted by Pam Godwin
Jake & Conor
I THINK I DIED A LITTLE ON THESE PAGES
5 Stars!

What a ride! I mean, holy hell in a hand basket… this one was unforgiving and exhilarating. Really folks, from the first chapter…THE FIRST CHAPTER I was shocked, hooked , and gearing up for 110% full on angst. I got it!

I wanted this book to go in so many directions, sometimes it did, other times it went the complete opposite and truly, I was ok with that. Julep Ranch is a place that feels like home even to me, the reader! Pam does a brilliant job (as usual) of unfolding the setting, the landscape, and the feel of emotions involved.

Conor Cassidy is a free spirited young woman who stares despair in the face and pushes past its clutches only to be thrust into another conundrum. She’s remarkable and strong, She’s honest and unique, and she’ll steal your heart, break it and put it back together again.

Jake Holsten is all in where Conor is concerned. He’s loved her his whole life and no one or thing will ultimately come between them, or so I thought. He’s honest to a fault, but has to bite his tongue to keep his girl safe.

There aren’t too many supporting characters or at least not ones I care to mention. There is of course Jarret (Jakes twin) and Lorne, Conor’s brother. These two cowboys are going to rock the pages of book 2 and book 3 and holy moly guacamole people, those books are going to be scorching.

I loved this story with my entire soul. It was captivating right away and the characters are genuine and likable and drew me in instantaneously. The dialogue flows easily and sounds natural. The storyline is irreplaceable and the pacing flawless. The tension is immediate and leads you to a path of destruction, refurbishing, love, and acceptance. What a breathtaking tale!

Review: Devastate (Deliver #4) by Pam Godwin

It’s LIVE!

Devastate, Book #4 in the Deliver Series

Amazon | Other Retailers | Goodreads

“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.

Devastate by Pam Godwin
Lucia & Tate
FUCK ME
5 Stars

So this is the 4th installment of Pam’s Deliver Series and I just can’t get over how crazy good these books keep getting. Sometimes in a series the first few books are rock solid but then start to decline as the books get added… Not this series… they keep getting hotter, dirtier, darker, and for the love of Gann, creepier. Jaysus Pam, what goes on in that pretty head of yours? If I could unzip myself for one day and become someone else, I’d want to be Pam Godwin! I want to know what makes her tick. I want to see what she sees, feel what she feels, and mostly I want to lay on her office floor and smooch on Goliath and Blitz!

This is really not a standalone although I guess it could be but you’d be doing yourself a HUGE disservice if you didn’t read, Deliver, Vanquish, and Disclaim first. So get yo ass over to Amazon or whatever and pick those bitches up first. I believe Deliver is free on Amazon… whadda ya got to lose??

So, to the story we go… Lucia has been missing for 11 yrs with no hope in sight of ever being found. Her last remaining family member believes she’s dead and not looking for her. Lucia endures countless hardships and destitution is her life. She’s come to grips with that as she believes she’s alone in this fucked up world with nothing and no one to live for.

Tate is as fucked up as they come. He was kidnapped, trained to be a sex slave, and now free still doesn’t really know where he belongs…. Until Lucia! Tate takes the unbelievable task of rescuing Lucia from Caracas, Venezuela the murder capitol of the world!

The supporting character cast is fairly large. Mostly from previous books and not necessarily from this series.. wink wink!! This is why you need to read the first three books first. I love how these tortured souls band together to help one another!

This book, this series is phenomenal. It will make you laugh through tears and cringe while your heart is racing. I seriously chain smoked through most of it! This book is dark and has many triggers so reader beware! The characters are endearing and horrifying all at the same time. The writing style is exceptional and satisfying. Too many highs and lows to mention, but the pacing is impeccable and moved at a good rate and the climax did the book justice. I loved it and can’t wait till #5 Take!

 


Deliver, Book #1

itunes-logo-300x180

Deliver2500x1563

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

itunes-logo-300x180

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

itunes-logo-300x180

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?

FROM USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR M. ROBINSON
COVER MODEL ENRICO RAVENNA
COVER DESIGN: THE FINAL WRAP
I didn’t know darkness and evil lurked inside me until I had to murder in order to survive. Forced to become my own worst enemy. With so much blood on my hands, I was surprised I could still see my own skin.
I killed. 
I tortured. 
I loved… 
I played God while I was rotting in Hell. Thriving on control and power was the only way I knew how to live. There were no other options. 
If you weren’t my friend, you were my foe.
If you weren’t with me, you were against me.
Traitors, as I called them. There were no imaginary lines. I’d crossed them all. No boundaries. No second chances. No redemption.
Not for me.
For them.
For anyone.
Only for her…
She loved me. Always convinced I was a saint, never believing I was just another sinner.
A fucking monster.
Until it was too late. 
Except, I didn’t choose this life. 
It. Chose. Me.
*STANDALONE CONTEMPORARY/NEW ADULT ROMANCE


 

FREE ON KINDLE UNLIMITED
 
I’m going to tell you a story.
It’s dark.
It’s brutal.
It’s fucking real.
In order to understand my present, who I am, and what I’ve
become…
You need to understand my past.
Evil doesn’t always hide in the shadows, in the darkness.
Most of the time, it’s out in the open, in plain fucking sight. Possessing the
man you’d least expect. You see, I never imagined another life until I made one
for myself. By that time, I was too far-gone, engulfed in nothing but pitch
black darkness. Exactly the way it was meant to be.
No one could touch me.
No one fucked with me.
I. Was. Invincible.
Nothing more…
Nothing less.
When I dreamed of true love—of soul mates, my other half, of
her—the cruelty of my life would snap me back into my reality, making it just
that, a dream. One that could easily turn into a nightmare.
My worst fucking nightmare.
Every memory, the good, the bad, the in between. All the I
love yous, every last I fucking hate you, her heart and soul that I’d broken,
shattered and destroyed along the years belonged to me.
Her pleasure.
Her pain.
It was all a part of me, carved so fucking deep into my skin
where she would forever be engraved. My story is going to make you fucking hate
me as much as she does, but I want you to.
I’m not looking for redemption.
I’m not looking for your forgiveness.
I don’t deserve yours like I don’t deserve hers.
I’m far from the hero in this story.
I’m closer to the villain.
You will think of me as the villain.
Except, I’m far worse.
I’m the fucking monster.
And, I’m perfectly alright with that.
I dare you to try to love me…
Like she did and probably still does.

Author Bio

I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts. My debut series, Ashes & Embers, follows the lives of rock band members as they find, and sometimes lose, the loves of their lives.

Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.
