Deliver 
By Pam Godwin
Our Rating: A Whole Bottle of Wine


Blurb:

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.

Romantic Thriller
Stand Alone (no cliff-hanger). The sequel is coming Summer 2014.
Content warning: Graphic sex, violence, and psychological abuse. Age 18+ only.


Ash's review:

Not to sound cheesy, but boy did Pam deliver!!!!!  My first encounter with Pam Godwin was her novel, Beneath the Burn and I absolutely LOVED it.  So when I found out that she had written another one I jumped at the chance to read it.  And I was NOT disappointed.  Deliver was amazing and it really snapped me out of my reading slump!  I read it in about 24 hours!!!!  Which is impressive considering I had been working on a different book for darn near 2 weeks!!!!

Deliver was not quite as dark as BTB, and I think it was because of Josh.  While he had a side to him that he had kept suppressed for 21 years, he was still a bright spot of hope in a deep, dark world.  A world that he was thrust in to against his will.

I loved Liv.  Even though she was supposed to be the 'bad guy', there was something about her, even from the beginning, that made me want to root for her.  Once you got further in to the story, you learned exactly what that reason was.  

Pam is a master at story telling.  She does a wonderful, amazing job thrusting you right in the middle of her story.  And her twists!!!!!  I literally gasped out loud when I realized what was really going on!!!  I promise, you will NOT be disappointed at the end of Deliver.

This blogger is giving Pam Godwin's 'Deliver' an entire BOTTLE  of sparkling grape juice...... Being 8 months pregnant really puts a damper on your white zin consumption!!!!  


Fall's review:

First and foremost....... HOLY SHIT! I bow to the greatness that is Pam Godwin. I spanked this book and made it my bitch...hahaha! No seriously, I read Deliver in less then 24 hours because it was THAT AMAZING!! 

Beneath the Burn was the first book I read by the angst master Pam. It was a book I raved about and told all my friends to read while atthe same time thinking, how does one write something so deep and dark with just a sliver of light coming through? When Aly (yes the Aly Martinez of the Wrecked and Ruined series) told Ash and I that Pam was at it again I thought to myself, how is she going to top Beneath the Burn? Well ladies, once again Pam does NOT disappoint. I agree with Ash, where Beneath the Burn was darker, Deliver was mentally dark but emotionally a little lighter. 

Josh is the All American boy. Sexy, smart, a killer smile and the star of the football team. With an amazing heart and personality to boot, what woman wouldn't want him? With his faith and his family by his side, Josh thinks he has his life planned out. Work hard, study hard, make mom and dad proud and be the good Christian son they raised and expect him to be. He never would have thought meeting the cute girl stranded on the side of the road would forever change his life and his beliefs. 

Liv looks sweet and innocent, until you get her behind closed doors. Having her virtue taken from her at a young age has hardened Liv's heart and soul. Raised and trained to act and feel a certain way takes a lot out of a girl.  But when Josh catches Liv's eye there is just something about him that she can't let go of. She knows that she's broken and tainted and no one will ever love her but it doesn't stop her from pulling Josh into her world of rules and pain. Can a broken heart be mended? Can love and pain exist to form balance? 

If you have never read BTB or Deliver by Pam Godwin I HIGHLY recommend you rectify that by going and buying her books immediately. You will thank me! However, be prepared for LOTS of angst, and twists and turns. Your heart will feel like its on the ride of is life. This avid reader gives Pam Godwin's Deliver a whole bottle of the strongest wine you can find. Trust me you're going to need it!!!  And some chocolate!!!


                                       
Meet The Author:

Pam Godwin lives in the Midwest with her husband, their two children, and a foulmouthed parrot. When she ran away, she traveled fourteen countries across five continents, attended three universities, and married the vocalist of her favorite rock band.


Java, tobacco, and dark romance novels are her favorite indulgences, and might be considered more unhealthy than her aversion to sleeping, eating meat, and dolls with blinking eyes.
