Release Day Blitz + Review: Devastate by Pam Godwin

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.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I've read the entire Deliver series almost back to back and now I think I'm going to suffer from withdrawal because how am I supposed to let this all go?
Pam Godwin continues to push over and over again! If you think Disclaim was dark, wait for Devastate! This is getting worse with each and every single book she writes! You think you've reach the darkest? Well not at all, Devastate is worse!

I was a little nervous when starting this one because I loved all the books in the series. I couldn't believe something could be better than what I felt with Disclaim or even Vanquish but I had the same vibes! Pam Godwin is really a queen when it comes to mix feelings and darkness. How she associate distress and hope is beyond me!

This is not a standalone, you have to read the other books because all of them are intertwined. Moreover I would strongly suggest reading The Tangled Lies series as well because one of the main characters makes an appearance here. If you want to read this trilogy read the Deliver series first, it'll spoil the entire trilogy if you don't which will be a real pity because the Tangled Lies series is one of the best I've read last year.

In Devastate, you have Tate who will do anything to find Camilla's sister, Lucia who's been missing for more than a decade.
I was so excited to get to know him because aside from being nice I didn't know how he was and how he could cope with what he has been through. I loved discovering where he was coming from, what was his life before his kidnapping and he became such an alpha man. I never could resist one and it was no different with him.

I had some concerns about Lucia when I first heard about her in Devastate. The picture described is far from encouraging. The mystery surrounding her was thick.

One more thing I was apprehensive about was how these two would fall in love for each other. How they would connect and how it would be believable... Well that's where Pam's magic happens. She makes it natural; she makes it spectacular even in the darkest of time.

Just a special mention to fans of Van because this man, he kinda stole the show for some parts. There wouldn't be Devastate without him! The parts he plays, the way he acts, the things he does are just him 100% and it made me love the man even more!

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?
