Deliver by Pam Godwin: Blog Tour and Giveaway

Thursday, March 27, 2014

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.

Romantic Thriller
Stand Alone (no cliff-hanger). The sequel is coming Summer 2014.
Content warning: Graphic sex, violence, and psychological abuse. Age 18+ only.

On his back, muscles bared, bound, and stretched the full length of the box, he was an erotic picture. She was a criminal, and as ashamed as she was by that, the disgusting, fucked-up part of her anticipated spending the next ten weeks touching every inch of this man.
She dragged her gaze from his body to his face, and guilt slammed into her.
He stared up at her with so much pain in his eyes. “Don’t hurt my parents.”
Her gut twisted. She knew that pain, lived it every day. She leaned in, lips hovering a breath away, and repeated what Mr. E had said to her. “That’s up to you.”
Resolve hardened his face. She knew that emotion, too. Her time in the box was permanently carved in memory, which had made Van’s threats of returning her there an effective form of control in her training.
Tendrils of resentment coiled around her throat. To dwell on her or the boy’s predicament would only bring irresponsible hesitation. So she did what she always did to distract her thoughts.
She reached into the cold place inside her, searching for something yearning she could sing with dispassion. The beginning verses of “What It Is” by Kodaline fell past her lips and shivered through the room. She sang with an icy pitch as she removed a blindfold from the trunk by the box and tied it over his wide, glaring eyes.
To deprive smell, a swimmer’s nose plug went on next. He could breathe through his mouth, and the cracks in the box allowed airflow, but it wouldn’t feel that way to him once she shut the lid.
The skin on his face was hot and damp, the muscles beneath jerking against her fingers. She continued to sing as she cuffed headphones over his ears, plugged them into the tablet outside of the box, and activated the timer. Twenty minutes of heart-hammering silence.
The music in her voice strangled, stopped. Twenty minutes alone with his thoughts. Then the misery would begin.
“It’s just the way it is,” she murmured with an ache in her throat.
His body was motionless, but she didn’t miss the goosebumps creeping across his skin or the slight tremor in his cheeks. The sudden desire to comfort him drew her closer, bending her at the waist, until her mouth brushed his, softly, unjustly. His lips pulled away in a quiver that she felt throughout her body.
She straightened and rubbed her breastbone, unable to soothe the ache beneath it. “I’m so sorry.” A whisper, too low to pass through the earphones.
Then she closed the lid.

Mona's Review

It's impossible to deliver a SPOILER free review...

**4.8 Delivered, Claimed & Worshiped Stars**
She was a deliverer, a killer,

a soulless captor.

Deliver, a story that will shock you, push the boundaries of your comfort and teach you not all love stories have a predictable happy ending. An impossible love, fighting for its survival, surrounded by strength and monsters looking to destroy it. A relationship built on pain, dominance and power...and the unforgettable journey of lost innocence.

Joshua Carter doesn't realize the drastic changes his life is about to experience...or the possibility of it changing, after helping a stranded stranger. His lured into his own imprisonment, where he's introduced to his new reality... where
"Joshua Carter no longer exists...For the next ten weeks, your name is whatever I want it to be."
A slave, trained to become obedient and ready to service his new master. Joshua is scared and angry, but has no choice but to follow the rules if he wishes to survive and keep his family safe.

"Mistress, I love your smile. If I could free it once a day, it might make the next ten weeks bearable.

She's the deliverer, who will take him to his new life, his trainer and his mistress for the next ten weeks. Liv Reed has a job to do. Twelve requirements to follow, to create the perfect slave, fit for a master. She's determined, harsh and not afraid to inflict pain on those who misbehave. Liv is a mistress and expects her dominance to be accepted... but is she really in charge of her fate and those under her training? Or is she a slave, trapped in a prison built by her own captors?

She was stolen innocence, following the rules of monsters. Somewhere along the way, she'd become one.

Hating his captor may seem easy, but Joshua believes he's glimpsed something more in Liv's eyes, that's beyond the tough mask she dons on during their sessions. He's determined to discover what she's hiding and break down the walls she's built to protect herself.
He looked at her like he thought he could save her. Maybe he could. Except he was supposed to despise her.

Through his eyes and thoughts, Joshua helps the reader understand Liv's choices and helps us grow to care for her. His strong mind and religious beliefs, empower him not to give up, and to fight for himself and the real Liv... the girl his discovered under hidden layers.

To win this, he'd play her game until, eventually, hopefully, they played on the same side.

Soon Liv realizes Joshua isn't like any slave she's trained before. His stubborn and weakening her defenses. His a risk to all she holds dear. A risk, that's tempting her to break all the rules keeping her family safe from the monsters she works for.

Liv and Joshua soon discover all the barriers in their way, preventing them from forming a relationship... a relationship beyond the roles played as mistress and slave. They face their challenges head on...shedding tears and blood along the way. But how can they possibly see a future together and move on from a horrible past, nipping at their heals every step of the way?

"Don't hide this from me." He tapped the spot over her heart. A noise hitched her throat. "It's ugly in there, decayed by lies and shame, endlessly bleeding for all the lives I've ruined."

A dark, thrilling and yes...beautiful love story, that must be shared, read and cherished by all. This story will amaze you, surprise you at every corner and have your heart racing all the way. It will consume you from the first punishment received, to the first kiss shared. This book is simply... brilliant .

Mates if you don't mind dark reads, with a mind blowing story line... then please gives this book a try xx
"I see all of you...
I claim every jagged piece of you."
