3.5--Too Unrealistic--Stars!!

My biggest problem I think with this book was that it just wasn't believable...too much didn't add up.  

I didn't buy the connection between Josh and Liv.  I really struggled with Josh's character.  How he could go from a twenty-something virgin football star studying to be a minister

"Fulfilling their promise.  They'd made a deal with God.  If He gave them a child, they vowed to raise their miracle to be a servant of His church in Baptist ministry."
to willing taking a strap-on up the ass and wanting to be beat for pleasure.  

I will say, the writing was good...and the story was engaging and suspenseful.  I was never bored.  But I did roll my eyes at quite a few things throughout the book.

It's hard to say much without giving anything away....but Josh is Liv's latest "victim".  He is slave number eight that she is to kidnap and train for the latest buyer.  

"He represented purity, beauty, family, all of the things that had been taken from her.  He was a glimmer of goodness in her dark fucking world, a warm spark she could hold, if only for a fleeting span of time."

I thought the development of their "relationship" happened really quickly.  They went from Mistress and boy to Liv and Josh almost overnight...and all because Josh wouldn't kiss Van??  Because he was stubborn, disobedient and untrainable?

Van and Liv are a team of sorts.  Van's character was

They had a weird relationship to say the least.  Several things about Van didn't add up for me....the end especially.  

You didn't not just do that Liv....and then (view spoiler)

There were aspects I liked about this one, and aspects I didn't.  I think if you're a fan of captor type love stories you'll like this one.  You'll root for Josh and Liv to have a HEA despite everything else.

"You said you freed me, but freedom isn't defined by chains or walls.  You, alive, with me.  That's my freedom."

My Review
Deliver (Deliver, #1)Deliver by Pam Godwin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3 stars

Liv captures people, trains them and delivers them to their master. This time her target is Joshua. It was a nice change that the guy is the one captured for once. There was a few dark parts in the story that I liked.

However, I found the story drag a little at the beginning. The couple moved from captor&captive to "I'm yours" pretty quickly and I failed to find a connection. I ended this book feeling not entirely satisfied and a few things didnt make sense to me. Ive also noticed theres a book 2 based on one of the characters and I am interested to find out what exactly happened to that character as the story didn't feel complete.

I would give this a go if you like your dark sexy standalone romance.
