I'm a huge LA Cotton fan and I've not ready anything by Jenny Siegel before, but if this book is an example of what they write together, then I'm SOLD! This book was totally not what I've come to expect for Ms. Cotton and what a pleasure it was to read it.
The characters Dawson and Joy were high school sweethearts and had plans for the rest of their lives. However, something prevented that from happening and Dawson left town and he never planned on returning. He always thought Joy had left Chancing to pursue her dreams. Imagine his surprise when he returns three years later and runs into Joy. On the outside, for the most part, she looked like "his Joy" but there was definitely something missing.
What Dawson doesn't know is that Joy now belongs to another man and her life has been less than perfect. What Joy doesn't know is that Dawson still loves her and he's bound and determined to prove his love for her once and for all.
I loved how alpha Dawson was and how determined he was to get Joy back. Their love for each other never died and even though it would be best for him to turn around and leave town again because Joy's current boyfriend is not a nice man, Dawson doesn't listen. This was an intense read and there was plenty of suspense involved and I was captivated by the story.
This was well written and I couldn't tell which author was writing which portion which is always tricky when authors collaborate together. While there is no cliffhanger in the true sense of the word, I'm hoping the next book is Lex's story!
I want to do a quick trigger warning. Deliverance has some scenes that can trigger those who have suffered at the hands of domestic violence. While I have been in abusive relationships, normally I don’t have any triggers when reading books with it in them but this time I had some slightly more anxiety than I usually do when it comes to this subject. I just wanted to warn you all. Now on to my review.
Deliverance is a second chance romance that will bring tears to your eyes, knots in your stomach and a knife to your heart. It will also put a smile on your face, have you laugh out loud, and will repair the damage the knife to the heart causes. Joy and Dawson will have your emotions on a roller coaster ride, and once that ride starts you won’t want it to stop until the very end.
Deliverance is written by two authors and the writing is smooth so you can’t notice that it is coming from two separate people. I am going to be anxiously awaiting the next book in this series. Add this one to your TBR lists, I think you will like it.
Joy and Dawson made it through high school together and had huge plans to quit town and start their lives together somewhere else but what they want and what they get is two completely different things.
I liked the fact that they both got the opportunity to express themselves in this story, that eth authors gave them both a voice and let them tell their story in their own words, I find that it is the most comfortable way of reading story like this that is multi-facetted.
Life gets in their way and not only scuppers their plans but drive a wedge between the two of them and in they end they have no dreams to move forward with because they are not together anymore.
Now I was a little confused about some of the events that unfolded and about the fact that Dawson was so determined to keep his distance from Joy, no matter the fact that he had contact with family and friends.
I didn’t take to Donnie, although I am not sure why.
Joining Maverick Defence, may have been the smart move for Dawson but it wasn’t doing anything to bring him any closer to Joy, he is constant taking on tasks that put paid to any chance they may have had of getting what they had back.
There were so any secrets that I was at a loss as to how their journey was ever going to turn around.
I got the feeling that Joy was almost drowning with the enormity of the situation with her and Dawson but rather that remedy what is going on, mind you how can you address something when the man you need to talk to is never around?
And rather than completely retreat into her shell, she is wallows her way from day to day, struggling to find anything that can lift her despair, even her half-hearted relationship (of sorts) with Dawson’s best friend Donnie. I really wanted to give her a good hard shake, I really struggle with weak willed women and I thought she was selling herself short!
So what happens when Dawson finally gets his backside back into town, will they be able to handle being in the same town?
Will they be able to talk their issues through?
Can they see past the hurt and mistrust to put their friendship back on track and what about Donnie?
I had so many questions and I know I am leaving you with so many of them still unanswered but where would be the fun in me telling you what happens!
Overall I would say I liked the story but I think I liked the secondary characters more than the primary ones, not that I hated either Joy or Dawson but more that I loved Mikey, Sherri. Lex and of course Ari.
The book was well written and engaging, I definitely wanted to keep turning the pages but I am left waiting for the next book to discover whether the hopes that I have accumulated in my head for the characters will actually come to fruition.
