DELIVER by Pam Godwin
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.
DELIVER by Pam Godwin
Wow, what a book! So many twists and turns!
So, this one had me from the first chapter where we met all three MC’s. And it just kept getting better from there.
It did drag a little from about 70-80% mark and I found myself flicking through the pages just scanning the text to get the gist of what was happening but overall it held my attention pretty well.
I had no problem picturing the world or characters, in fact, I may have pictured one or two of them a little too well if ya catch my drift.
- LIV – Liv is awesome sauce. This poor girl has been through the wringer and is somehow still sane. Kinda.
She was captured at 17 and trained to be a sex slave but, well, something went horribly wrong and now she is doing the training. That started seven years ago!. But don’t hate on her quite yet. The thing is, she has no choice. These people are forcing her to do this by threatening the lives of the only two people in the world she cares about.
A hellish position to be in, for sure.
This last male she scouted out to be a slave though? Well, there’s something about him that she just can’t help but be drawn to, however, she can’t show him any kindness at all because she only has ten weeks to train him up and pass him on to the buyer.
She is one tough cookie and I love her. She has been holding it all together for seven years in order to save the ones she loves but now, things are starting to crumble.
- VAN – For most of the book I’ve been hating on this ass hole. He’s an abusive, manipulative, raping arsehole of a man and I wanted him dead. HOWEVER! I don’t know how she did it, but Pam Godwin had me catchin’ feels for this fucker towards the end of the story!
He is everything that is wrong in Liv’s life and has more than a few “oddities” (mannequins and hair, y’all).
He’s her partner in crime and helps catch and train these men and women to become sex slaves to whoever pays enough.
He’s also freakin’ obsessed with Liv.
In his very own sick and twisted way he really does love her, but it’s not at all healthy and is extremely disturbing.
- JOSH – Poor Josh. He’s the all American good guy. He’s the college quarterback, helps his parents run the farm morning and night and is training to be a minister.
100% virgin. 100% innocent. Until he’s captured.
You would think he’d be easy to mold being so pure and stuff but he’s not. He’s strong-willed and stubborn…and it turns out this “good boy” has a thing for pain!
Yup, mister holier than thou is a pain slut (that’s what they call him in this book anyway. Is that a PC term?).
I liked him most of the time. He sounded pretty hot but I prefer my men to be dishin’ out the pain, yo, not taking it.
I wasn’t keen on him trying to sort of spout out bible shit when things were getting dark either. But again that’s my personal aversion to any “bible shit” at all, lol.
- SEX SCENES – All bible sayings aside, the sex was steamy! Mm-hmm. It sure was. I loved how he learned from Liv and discovered things that really worked for him.
FINAL THOUGHTS on DELIVER by Pam Godwin
Like I said before this book had a few twists and turns that I was just not expecting.
At one point I was sure the story was wrapped up, but no! Boom! There’s more, lol.
The ending was perfect and I may just get the next in series to see what happens.
