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.
And her stubborn slave thinks he can deliver her…from herself.
STEPHANIE’S 5 BLUSH UP ALL NIGHT REVIEW
This is my second Pam Godwin book and I am blown away! I was literally freaking out through the first 25% of the book! I was on the edge of my seat and wasn’t sure if I’d be able to finish.
The writing is fantastic. The content is dark and at time uncomfortable. As I was reading I just kept thinking that I can’t imagine how this will turn out! Everything seems impossible! You will be pulled in like a vortex. It takes a lot to get this type of reaction out of me. There were times that I was yelling and times that I wanted to throw my kindle!
The story is unique as two people are thrown into an impossible situation. Liv Reed is a Deliverer. She lures young men and delivers them to be sold. This is necessary for her to protect her family. Joshua Carter is her prey. Her next target to be delivered. What happens will blow you away.
The relationship between Liv and Josh as Master and slave is intense and challenging. Josh has strength from within and never gives up.
“He was a man who loved selflessly and honestly, and she was taking him to a monster who would slice him open and fuck the incision.”
Liv has had so much heartache in her life. She is a dominant. A trainer. A deliverer. Not a choice that was made willingly. She faces so many challenges and obstacles. But she is strong and makes many many sacrifices.
“Don’t you see how wrong I am? I’m a kidnapper. A murderer. A fucking monster.”
“I see all of you.” He wrapped his arms around her and pressed his lips to her temple. “I claim every jagged piece of you.”
“He represented purity, beauty, family, all of the things that had been taken from her. He was a glimmer of goodness in her dark fucking world, a warm spark she could hold, if only for a fleeting span of time.”
There are twists, turns and complications. You will definitely be taken to the edge of your comfort zone. I’m glad I didn’t give up at 25%! Dark, raw, gritty, amazing! I can’t wait to read Vanquish next!
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-b*tch 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 f*cked-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.
STEPHANIE’S 4.5 BLUSH REVIEW
This review contains references to Deliver. If you have not read it I would suggest you do not read my review.
Vanquish is book two in the Deliver series. Reading Deliver (book one), sets the stage. As Pam Godwin states – Vanquish is a stand-alone, BUT if you intend to read the first book, Deliver, DO NOT read Vanquish first. There are numerous references in this book that will spoil the surprises in Deliver. If you don’t plan on reading Deliver, carry on.
If you survived Deliver then you are well aware of Van Quiso. I couldn’t imagine how Van’s story would be told. The depths of his cruelty seemed unredeemable. I was so surprised! His story was not at all what I expected.
Van Quiso has not led an easy life. Son of a former slave and drug addict. Abused in the worse ways from age nine only to be “rescued” by his father and made into a sex trafficking monster. He is truly a broken man. Life has given him nothing but cruelty.
“He was the worst combination of his parents, his very blood blackened with human slavery.”
Van is obsessed with two things; Liv, his former slave, and their daughter Livana. He wants an opportunity to meet his daughter. While spying on Liv he stumbles upon her next door neighbor Amber.
Amber Rosenfeld is also held captive. She has a form of agoraphobia that literally has her trapped in her own home. And she also has OCD. She is crippled by the combination. Unable to leave her own home. As the story unfolds Amber’s layers are peeled away until we get to her core.
Two very broken people meet in an unconventional way. Van, the hunter, sees Amber as his prey. He understands what it is like to be captive although Amber is a captive by choice. Van sees an opportunity to use Amber in his plan to meet his daughter.
“What was wrong with this girl? The intensity of her fear resonated deep within the depraved part of his being. It was as intoxicating as her beauty, but where did it come from?”
This was not the story that I expected. Honestly, I don’t think I could have taken another “Deliver”, lol. It was fascinating to watch both Van and Amber face their demons. There were a lot of “ah-ha” moments and a few twists I never saw coming. A big thumbs up to Pam Godwin who made my heart soften and sympathize toward Van. I was rooting hard for Amber! I love how she builds both Van and Amber back up and yet they are still not perfect. A great follow up to Deliver!
Looking forward to Disclaim!
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.
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?
STEPHANIE’S 5 BLUSH UP ALL NIGHT REVIEW
This review contains references to Deliver and Vanquish. If you have not read them I would suggest you do not read my review.
Disclaim is book three in the Deliver series. Once again Pam Godwin has told a story, one in which you cannot imagine a favorable outcome, and turned it around. It is brilliant the way she weaves the tale and connects the dots. Each book in the Deliver series has its own demons to slay.
We meet Camila Dias in Deliver. She was the first slave captured by Van & Liv. In a way, she helped to set things in motion by killing her would-be buyer and using his phone for the next referral/buyer who wanted to purchase a slave, starting her own brand of vigilantism. With the help of Liv, Camila was able to free all of the slaves that Liv & Van captured. Van & Liv join forces with Camila, helping her when needed.
Camila is ready for the next step. She feels the only way to really put a dent in the sex trafficking is to get to the cartel by any means possible. In this case, actually becoming a slave once again. She expects that things will be difficult and crue,l but she’s been there before and her drive and desire to stop human trafficking gives her the push to follow through with her plan.
What Camila never expected was to be delivered into the hands of her first love, Matias. For years he had been the one she called if things got too crazy and she needed a quick “clean up”. She always maintained her distance because of his lack of honesty, especially regarding his occupation….
“Eighteen year old Matias never kept secrets from her. But the man he’d become was a mysterious, unreachable black hole.”
“Maybe she was just as closed off as he was, but he at least knew what she was involved in. Since the day she escaped, she’d told him she was killing slave buyers while he told her absolutely nothing.”
And so it begins. The story is laid out. The questions. The answers (finally). The twists and turns that you will not see coming. Pam Godwin can lay a tale out and smack you upside the head with it in pure disbelief. Once again she makes the impossible – possible. Dark, raw, gritty. Fantastic story. Can’t wait for Devastate!
“Funny thing, trust. It was so hard to give, yet easy to rip away. He’d earn her trust through sixteen years of friendship. Then he’d lost it…..”
