Review: Unshackle by Pam Godwin (Deliver #7)
Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.
No one does dark romance quite like Pam Godwin, and I know I'm not the only one who thinks that way. Here's the thing: I'm extremely picky when it comes to tropes that aren't my go-tos, and yes, dark romance happens to be one of them. That being said, Godwin happens to be a go-to author for me, and yes, I know very well that she's a dark romance-writing goddess. So, while it may sound weird that I love to read her books even though they fall under a trope that isn't one of my top picks, it's her writing that entices me to dive in blind almost every single time she has a new release (I'm only missing one title of hers from about three years ago!). And now, she's just published the seventh (!) addition to her equal parts intriguing and enticing Deliver series, and Unshackle totally delivered.
Unshackle is the story of Luke Sanch, who is no stranger to readers who are familiar with the Deliver series. When he infiltrates the La Rocha Cartel, he faces a quandary with regard to Vera Gomez. Is she a victim...or something insidious? This is where a female captive comes into play, and she is every bit the fighter who captures Luke's attention...and his heart. Just like the first six novels, it's difficult to go into detail without giving something away, and I don't want to spoil the book for anyone who has yet to pick it up. What I will say is that it's always personally benefited me going into each book in this series blind because my sole expectation is for the amazing storytelling I've always come to expect from Pam Godwin. That's exactly what I got alongside the fantastic chemistry between the main characters and palpable tension throughout. Unshackle gets 4.5 stars, and with two books left, I cannot wait to see how Godwin wraps this series up.
