New Release: TAKE by Pam Godwin
TAKE is book 5 in the DELIVER Series
Dark Romance – Anti-heroes – Sex Trafficking – Cartel
He’s a notorious crime lord, a kidnapper, and an artist.
Scarification is his outlet, and he just captured a new canvas.
Kate refuses to surrender beneath his blade or the cruelty in his beautiful eyes.
But she’s drawn to the man inside the monster. A man who makes her ache with his touch. Who owns her with his kiss.
A man who worships her as deeply as he hurts her.
She can run, but there’s no escape from a bond carved in scars.
My ARC Review:
OMG this series just gets better!!! Pam writes the best dark, anti-hero and often disturbing reads, but they are well worth it if this is your thing – this one like the others in this series will push your limits – it is dark, violent and dirty, a captor/captive read that that will push and pull you along the love to hate line – it is so very wrong but oh so very right.
Don’t read this as a standalone, ideally the whole series must be read in order to fully appreciate what is going on in here.
Kate is back in hell after being captured again. She knows that Tiago Badell, the infamous crime lord, has her. She hates him with a passion, at the same time she is terrified of him and even worse finds him outrageously handsome. But she will not submit to him, she fights him at every turn, she is a spitfire.
Tiago has taken Kate as payment for something that was taken from him. She is not what he expected, she fights him at everything he does, and he loves it! As they come to get to know one another a bond develops, she starts to have feelings for the monster, or maybe its just Stockholm syndrome….
This is not a conventional romance, it is very brutal in parts, yet even so there is also some humor in here keeping it balanced. Tiago is the anti hero you will love to hate, he is very badly broken from his past and is the way he is because of this. Yet even so there are soft and swoony moments in here with him, he has some redeeming qualities even though he is bad to the bone.
I loved Kate and her strength of character, even after everything she has been through she still had the ability to look beyond that which you could only see on the surface and look deeper at the meaning behind it all. She saw the worth in Tiago hiding behind the monster that he was.
A fantastic read, one of the best dark romances I’ve read, I love this series and can’t wait for more!
Each book is a different couple. No cliffhangers. Must be read in order.
DELIVER, Book 1: FREE on all retailers
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.
VANQUISH, Book 2
He belongs in a prison cell.
The 6×8, make-me-your-bitch 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 fucked-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.
DISCLAIM, Book 3
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?
DEVASTATE, Book 4
“What is the price you’re willing to pay?”
“Money isn’t an issue.”
“I’m not talking about money.”
Tate is on the hunt to find his best friend’s sister.
Eleven years ago, Lucia Dias was abducted. Presumed dead. He never met her, so why does he care?
Some might call his efforts noble, but his motivation is more perverse, bordering on obsession.
When he follows a chilling lead to Venezuela’s Kidnap Alley, what he finds is neither a corpse nor a captive.
Amid poisonous lies and crippling depravity, the price of love is devastation.
And he pays.
With his body, his blood, and her life.
