Devastate (Deliver, #4) ~ Pam Godwin

It's LIVE!

Devastate, Book #4 in the Deliver Series

Amazon | Other Retailers | Goodreads

“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.




Just when I thought the previous book was my favorite, Ms. Godwin pulls out her brilliant & magical mind and gives me yet another story that blew me away. Devastate is a phenomenal read - masterfully written, beautifully executed. 

After finishing Disclaim, I could not wait for this book. I knew Tate’s story was going to be a good one, and Pam did not disappoint. Full of heart-pounding goodness, I was craving every page. 

Tate and Lucia are strong, badass characters that had sparks flying when they were together. I was already in love with Tate from before, and now I can add Lucia to the list of heroines I adore and respect. 

I absolutely loved reuniting with all of the characters from the previous books, especially Van. Oh my goodness, Van. He was a huge part of this book and I couldn’t be happier. I fell for him even more. 

When Pam Godwin writes a story, she makes sure the reader FEELS everything. And I sure felt it all with this one, deep down in my soul. 

This was full of action that had my heart racing. It’s packed with an intense energy that had me trembling with anticipation. And scorching hot scenes had me feeling red-hot desire. Raw, powerful, and intoxicating - I couldn’t help but devour these pages. 

This was an excellent addition to the Deliver series. Dark & delicious and gut-wrenchingly GOOD. 

I must add, the appearance of a certain someone from Pam’s Tangled Lies series was absolute perfection. He fit right in with this crazy, fucked up cast of characters. And my heart still aches for him. <3

5 out of 5 hearts!

Deliver, Book #1



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.

Until him.

And her stubborn slave thinks he can deliver her…from herself.

Vanquish, Book #2


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 6x8, 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.
Except him.
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?

Love You Through It
by Fabiola Francisco

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 23, 2018



After witnessing Bri Carmichael’s pain, Cole Burkely is determined to help her heal.

That home visit changed my life.

She is a shell of the person I knew. 

I just want each day to end so the night can swallow my pain.

She still has so much to give.

I’m empty.

I want to help her stand on her own again.

I’m not ready to let go.

She’s worth sticking around for.

My will to keep moving forward is stalled.

I want to make her smile again.

He has a good heart, but I can’t be the one to take care of it.

She doesn’t know that a long time ago I dreamed of her heart and soul.

My story has ended.

Our story is just beginning.

My fingers weave in my hair and tug hard. A loud yell escapes my lips, and my eyes land on the reason for the ruckus. An excruciating cry bubbles in my chest, slowly building as if adding to my pain. With another scream, the tornado within me explodes. It escapes angrily, as my body swooshes around my house, knocking things down as I come in contact with them. Glass shatters. Metal clacks against the tile. Cushions swoosh as they’re thrown through the air.

Uncontrollable and destructible fury burns within me until I melt into a pile of ashes on the cool tile. The water from my eyes extinguishes the burning heat as I sink further onto the floor. I curl into myself, fists hitting the hard surface.

I don’t know how long I stay like this for, but eventually I start to drift away, my mind numb and my heart slowing down. Before I completely fall asleep, I sit up. My head is pounding and my body is stiff from tension. I close my eyes for a few beats, and reassess the destruction around me when I reopen them.

I was okay a few days ago when Olivia came by. As okay as I could be in my situation. Today, I lost it. Something inside me triggered and I lost control. I tiptoe around the broken glass with my bare feet and grab the broken frame I launched across the living room.

I hug it to me, careless of shards of glass that could cut me. “I’m so sorry,” I whisper into the frame. “I’m such an asshole. Sorry.” I fight the urge to cry again. I pull the frame from my chest and stare at the picture of Josh and I. The glass scratched a bit of the gloss, but it’s still a beautiful picture of us. I shake off the excess glass, not even wincing when I get a small cut on my finger. The pain is welcomed.

After cleaning the mess, I sit cross-legged on the couch with a fresh glass of wine. Nothing will get rid of this headache, so I might as well fuel it with alcohol. Besides, I could use the disconnection alcohol offers. Another night of forgetting for a little while about the loss I’m grieving. Another night I sleep through most of it.

Copyright 2018, Fabiola Francisco



What an emotional and touching story this was! It’s full of pain & heartache, yet also full of healing, love, and second chances. 

The author did a great job with this. Her poetic writing style took a sensitive storyline and told about Bri and her heart-crushing loss and her experiences during the healing process. I felt all those heart-breaking moments, and kept turning the pages, wishing, and hoping Bri would finally open up her heart again to love. 

As the sexy drummer for the hot, country band, Rebel Desire, Cole been known to have his share of fun. But he’s ready for something else. Let me just say, Cole has stolen my heart. His patience, his persistence, all the while being a gentleman with a huge heart. Being the friend Bri needed. That song he wrote for her...gah...tears. It was beautiful. 

This was a great addition to the Rebel Desire series and I can’t wait for more!

Too Distracting by Bethany Lopez

(The Lewis Cousins, #3)
Contemporary Romance - Coming October 23

Add the book to Goodreads


As the successful and driven CEO of Lewis Sporting Goods, Dillon rarely has time to eat a home cooked meal, let alone put any time or effort into maintaining an actual relationship. He's been living on fumes and casual encounters for so long that finding love and starting a family never even crossed his mind, until his cousins Gabe and Reardon found women who gave them both.

Laurel has been in love with Dillon since she was nine years old. Unfortunately, he's always seen her as his little sister's pesky best friend. She can't stop her heart from beating frantically whenever he's near, but she's become an expert at keeping her feelings from everyone, especially Dillon. Her secret has been safe, until now...

When Laurel needs help with her business plan, her best friend urges her to seek help from Dillon. Determined to push her feelings aside and focus on her fledgling business, Laurel knows she needs to do whatever it takes to succeed, even if it means being treated to indifference and big brother teasing from the man she loves.

Can Laurel work with Dillon and still keep her heart intact, or will things get Too Distracting when Dillon realizes what a beautiful, kind, and generous woman she has become?
Too Distracting is the third in an all-new small-town romance series by Bethany Lopez. Follow the Lewis cousins as they learn about love and loss in Cherry Springs, the kind of place where there are festivals for every occasion and everyone knows your business.



I absolutely love Bethany's writing style. She can easily pull you into a story and make you fall in love with the characters immediately. Too Distracting is yet another example of that. 

I was really excited for Dillon's story. He is Jasmine’s twin brother. Laurel is Jasmine’s best friend since childhood. When they were kids, Laurel was that pesky girl who always played pranks and annoyed Dillon. A lot. There’s no way, many years later, Dillon can feel anything different toward her, other than annoyance. Right?

In this story, we get to see that relationship blossom into something more. More than just childhood irritations. We see Dillon look at Laurel in a different light. She’s now a beautiful woman who he can’t help but feel attracted to. One weekend is all it took for him to realize he can’t get enough. 

This group of cousins/friends is so dang lovable. You can't help but want to know everything about them. You wish you could hang out with them. I miss them already and need the next book like yesterday!

This story was fun, it was sexy, and left me with a smile on my face.

5/5 hearts!
