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.
Stand Alone (no cliff-hanger). The sequel is coming Summer 2014.
Content warning: Graphic sex, violence, and psychological abuse. Age 18+ only.
Liv is presented as a stone cold bitch. She pretends to be the damsel in distress, engaging her mark, and then closing them in. Like a venus fly trap almost. But Liv is not the bitch she presents herself to be, somewhere deep down locked away inside her is a strong, vibrant woman that is a victim of circumstance. She does what she is told in order to protect those she loves.
Josh is a down to earth genuinely nice guy. He's studying to become a minister, his mission in life is to help people. His inability to sense danger makes him the current victim of circumstance, or of Liv to be more precise. You see, Liv is a Deliverer. She lures the unsuspecting that fit the description her employer gives her. Sex and obedience are her specialty, until she captures Josh. Will he be the one to free her from this life she has become?
Oh my but this book was just raw sexuality wrapped up in chains! Godwin pushes the boundaries in this story both with the characters and the world they live in. The plot was anything but predictable, with several twists and turns throughout. In a unique twist, the guy is the one being held captive and the girl is calling the shots, literally. Even after finishing this book I couldn't say if Liv is the heroine or Josh the hero. Liv is strong and courageous to spite the life she is force to lead. Josh refuses to break or give in, period.
While there were some aspects to this story that were completely unrealistic, and some content that made me cringe, overall the writing was fantastic and I was engaged in the story throughout. I give this one 3.5/5 stars.
