Devastate, Book #4 in the Deliver Series
“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.
WOW!! What an amazing experience!
We had so many feels, surprises, darkness, suspense.... the intimacy was so HOT! I was really looking forward to Lucia and Tate’s story and I got so much more than I ever expected! Their connection is so dynamic and these characters are fleshed out so well, just like all the others, that it’s so easy to connect with them. I absolutely can not wait for Kate and Cole’s story! Sign me up!!

I have loved all the books in this series they have all pushed the boundaries but this one is my favourite.
This is Lucia and Tate’s story and of my goodness the feels .... this one has it all the drama and emotion, the suspense, the pain and love, the sex scenes woohoo.
I never imagined what a tight hold Tate would have on my heart and Lucia she was everything I expected her to be. The connection they have is undeniable and we get to know them both really well throughout the story.
One of my favourite series looking forward to the next book.

Incredibly talented and devastatingly diabolical...Pam Godwin is intimidating. Her mind, her world, and her characters are a dark and twisted place but it's amazing the amount of light that shines through.
Devastate is book 4 in the Deliver series and hopeful still just the beginning. These books are addictive and consuming. They are clever and so intriguing. It's not possible to be bored. You will never skim a passage, glance over a page, or skip ahead. No, you will be dragged through each sentence trying to capture the significance, haunted by thoughts of possibilities, and desperately patching together your own theories of what and where the story leads. From the catchy and very significant titles of the books and characters names to the unique landscape, everything has a purpose a reason and it's amazing- the feeling she gives to each and every thing.
Devastate is a relief. It's an insight into Tate but even more a bit of closure on his, Camila, and Mathias' back story. Answered questions of how it all came about...
My binge reading the series has been an incredible way to kick off Devastate but this book holds its own. So many things happened to get here and so many more happen in these pages. The build-up is incredible. The doubt, the unease, and the guilt weighing on the reader for a hope of something more is just awe-inducing. You will feel guilty for wanting more. You will feel shame, slight resentment, and disgust with yourself. It's incredible how well Ms. Godwin twists the knife of shame in the reader. How she gets your sympathy for her devils...
Devastate is a cleansing though. It's a second chance. But it's for all the wrong reasons- at first. It's a story of a growth. I know I'm gushing but damn it's a good book. If you want me to stop blabbering on, buy it. Read it. Experience it. But make sure you've read them in order...
and get this...
The next book (I cheated and read in the back of Devastate- where you just skimmed or even stopped reading before all those pages of stuff. You know, acknowledgements and stuff.) is called Take. Which if you noticed the naming pattern....

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?
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, Pam Godwin, lives in the Midwest with her husband, their two children, and a foul-mouthed parrot. When she ran away, she traveled fourteen countries across five continents, attended three universities, and married the vocalist of her favorite rock band.
Java, tobacco, and dark romance novels are her favorite indulgences, and might be considered more unhealthy than her aversion to sleeping, eating meat, and dolls with blinking eyes.
