"Josh and Liv's love story gutted us, totally f'cked with our heads, and had us turned on in the most twisted way that only Pam Godwin can." - The Rock Stars of Romance
"I loved this unique story of Liv & Josh, I felt as if I'd been through a grueling experience of abuse, violence and darkness with a heartbreaking romance amongst it all." -Totallybooked Blog
"Deliver pulled out all the stops...left me twisted up in knots, my heart in my throat...never knowing which way was right or wrong...and then took me to new levels of love, hope, happiness and joy." - Lisa, True Story Book Blog
"There is just something about Pam's writing that holds me captive. I hang on every word. I feel every emotion. I love every moment. Captive... it's been done before. Sex slave... yep, it's been done too. Deliver is completely original." - The Real Housewives of Romance Book Blog
"Deliver is undeniably captivating, but what gripped me from the start is Pam Godwin's way with words. Her writing seduces readers out of their comfort zone and into dark corners of incredibly dimensional worlds. I was a slave to this book, and couldn't put it down until the very end, but, much like her characters, I want to come back for more! Five breathless stars." - Lydia Michaels, Author of the Surrender Trilogy

Yes, this is a sex slave story, so obviously vile. So why would I pick it up? It was on special price, and I was drawn in by the writing when I checked the “look inside” sneak-peek. Which is why I gave the decent number of stars I did. There’s no reason to punish an author for a story that I didn’t like, if she told it well. And she did. The writing was excellent.
The reason this wasn’t a 5-star read for me was because the author lacks the psychological chops to handle the subject-matter realistically. The relationship between Liv and Van was handled well—the heroine WOULD be very conflicted about that relationship. But the main relationship between Liv and Josh fell drastically short.
It takes a lot for someone to come back from *years* of abuse as a sex slave…a lot more than Godwin put in here. This is also where the hero really fell off for me. If Josh was such a good guy, then he wouldn’t have been hounding after Live so much for sex. Sure, he could want her inside his head—how can someone stop natural desires?—but when it came to his treatment of her, he should have been the soul of patience. He wasn’t, and thumbs down to that.
Case in point: him fingering her in the backseat of the car while his god-fearing parents are driving, and doing this to give Liv the message that “nothing is going to change between them.” This was so off the mark of what was appropriate (and what the poor girl needed) as to be out in geosynchronous orbit.
Nothing about that scene forwarded the plot—detracted from it, really. In fact, the entire last quarter of the book should have been about a loving, caring healing between Josh and Liv. Instead it was just more sex, and it played terribly. Don’t get me wrong, I like graphic sex in my stories, but it has to be right and *mean* something. At the end, the sex was wholly gratuitous—so here Goodwin was just throwing in sexual contact to make sure that the book didn’t go too many pages without there being sex. What a shame that such a worthy author fell into the unworthy trap of writing gratuitous sex.
Because of this, I was very ready for this book to be done before it was. I was also ready for the brutality of things done to the characters to be done before it was. In short, this book went on too long. The story would have been better told had about 40 pages been cut. It actually took me forever to finish reading it because I had to keep taking breaks.
Ultimately, however, if you like your stories full of dark and twisty subject-matter (hero and heroine sharing a kiss of ejaculated semen, a brutal anal rape—which Liv got over WAY too quickly, btw), then this should be right up your alley. If you like that kind of stuff, the story is for the most part well-written, so I can recommend it.
The good: The plot, I liked this change from my normal abducted GIRL story line.
I really liked the twists throughout. I was taken by surprise more than once.
The not so good: Hard to believe this GIANT man was not able to free himself from this TINY girl. I know they "explain" why but, I just didn't believe it. Also, too much God. Not sure if the author was anti-religion or what but, there was a lot of prayers and putting faith in Him. I have no problem with God but, it just felt forced and out of place.
I also didn't like the other men in the book, the M lead was okay, he had a good head on his shoulders and was not a hot head but, the rest of them were TERRIBLE. Even once they tried to redeem one of them it was not something I was able to swallow.
Overall, I liked it enough, at some points it was a book I couldn't put down. There were too many issues to really love it though.
She was stolen innocence, following the rules of monsters. Somewhere along the way, she’d become one.
I'm probably of the minority, but I absolutely hated Liv. HATED HER!! Usually I can hope that an author can redeem a character, but I didn't want to hope with this one. I didn't want to like her. For all of her problems and the facts of her circumstances, I felt no sympathy. She's a monster looking for what? Compassion? Understanding? Eff that!
I figure that she and Josh end up together although she spends a heck of a lot of sexual time with Van (whom I want to know more about), but if dreams really did come true, Josh would use her for survival and freedom and kill her.
“It’s ugly in there, decayed by lies and shame, endlessly bleeding for all the lives I’ve ruined. You’re the eighth reason I don’t deserve affection.”
I'm glad that Liv and I could agree on something. Josh was everything! I loved how easily he acknowledged his love of pain and how it forged a connection to this captor. I didn't love how easily he fell for her, but this IS a romance, so what did I really expect? It was a bit different reading a captive/captor story with the captive being male, but I think the author did an incredible job with it. I had the same capacity for compassion for Josh as I would for a female captive.
“Gives me chills, Liv. Every damned time. Your beauty isn’t just an experience for the eyes. It breathes through the ears and evokes a reaction so consummating it claims the soul.”
At 52%, even with all of the revelations about Liv, I had more sympathy for Van than for her. I'm not saying Van is a nice guy or anything, obviously, but I can tell he's only made the best choices with horrific options. With the amount of information we receive by the end of the book, I'm even more eager to find out more details about this dude. Part of me wishes that he and Liv could have worked things out, but I understand why it's impossible. It's just that they've both done horrible things and deserve each other. Knowing that Van survived the gun shot wound inflicted by Liv made my day. I need to know how he survived and how he achieves his own happy ending. This broken man needs some redemption!
And then there's Josh... the man who definitely owned my heart in this story, right from the beginning.
“I can feel you.” He leaned back, inhaled deeply. “Inside me. Everywhere. You own me. You will always own me, and I will walk through hell to keep it that way.” Eyes on the road, her breath shivered from her lungs, cracking her voice. “You own me, too.” “I know.” He pinned her with those mesmerizing pale eyes.
“I stand here without rope or chains, Liv, tethered to you by my own will.” His blood beat with the ferocity of his words. “I won’t be free until you are.”
I have no idea if my hopes and dreams will ever be realized, but I want to see more of these people in the books to come. I know I'll be getting more Van (WOO HOO!!), but I want everyone together. I want Van to get his forgiveness from Liv, that these two work through everything and settle into some sort of friendship. I'd love to see them with their daughter, in a future of peace. I want, I want, I want. Now let's see if anything I want is out there.

Liv is a Deliverer, she captures, breaks and trains kids to be sex slaves. She's been doing this for 7 yrs, having been a slave herself, she is now the trainer. She has her sights set on Josh, but he's different from her usual slaves, he has a family and is the star of the local football team, but she goes after him anyway. She has 10 wks to train him for his new buyer.
Josh may be a virgin and raised a christian by his parents, whom he helps on their farm, but he has some naughty dark and dirty thoughts, which Liv finds out as she tries to train him. The problem being Liv and Josh have this connection, they are attracted to each other, even with the situation Josh is in. But he's not submissive, he's assertive, not a rule follower, and likes pain. He sees beneath Liv's masks at the woman underneath and feels he can help her out of a bad situation.
A very gripping, angsty read, very unusual with a woman domme as the 'master' and not a male, with the male victim being subjected to sexual abuse and training from her. Hot, dark, sexy, dirty, a very different read from the norm, and I really enjoyed it and can't wait to read the rest.
The relationship between Liv (who i liked) and Van (who is the baddy that we all love to hate) is complex and has been built on a bed of fear, pain and lies yet they only have each other until Josh comes along. He is the opposite of Van in every way. He is good, he is pure and he is set on figuring out what makes Liv tick and getting under her skin.
Every page brings a new twist and turn and causes you to feel a different emotion. In fact, even the end brings surprises. This is the type of book you love or cant stomach but for me i could not put it down! It blew me away. On to book 2 but with some reservations as i really disliked Van and cant see how my opinion will change - it is either going to worsen or have a total 360.
I simply loved every dark delicious twisted minute and every word. These are my favourite types of read and this one made me deliriously, insanely happy.
The characters were strong, I love a strong hero and heroine, the book invokes all the emotions you'd expect from the great writing skills, that show's a unique plot filled with self sacrificing.
Liv is such a strong willed heroine that refuses to be broken, she a deliverer of slaves for their cruel new lives, one of which she's currently living, until she enslaves Joshua Carter,a young man who also refuses to be broken and trained, what Josh hopes is he can free himself and Liv too, from the torment.
Things are never simple, but this is a breathtaking story about delivering freedom and finding one,happiness and true love in the most unexpected places.
I really cannot recommend this book highly enough.
And that's what i did, dived right in, but i felt like I'd dived into a pool with no water in.
The first 60 ish % of this book was slow and fairly uneventful. Id read maybe 2 or 3 pages and be nearly asleep. There was nothing to grab my attention. I just didn't feel the draw, couldn't connect with the characters, didn't really understand Josh. It was all just a bit like going through the motions.
Once we got to the turning point though I absolutely sped through the remainder of the book. There were a few good twists, quite a bit of angst and the chatacters seemed to come alive more.
Not sure I'll carry on with the rest of the series, although i did quite like Van and am intrigued about his situation so maybe when I'm at a loose end, i might invest in his story.
Liv's character and actions are slow to unfold, but what an incredible journey they take us on. And Van! I need to find out more about him!
An exciting, well developed book that I could not put down!🖤❤️🖤❤️🖤❤️🖤❤️🖤❤️
