I race to finance it.
I evade to protect it.
I kill to attain it.
I planned everything.

Except her.
The alluring, curvaceous blonde at the finish line.
With sapphire eyes that cheat and lie.
Whose powerful family murdered mine.

I hate her.
I want her.

I know she’s hiding something.
But so am I.

The strongest love begins from a place of conflict…

Dirty Ties is one of those books that keeps you on the edge of your seat. It starts fast paced and never slows. I loved all the twists, turns, secrets and surprises. Pam Godwin is one of those authors I can always count on to be consistently good. Her books are always original, gritty and well written. She never disappoints. This book was no exception. Although very different from her other books, it was fantastic. I tho

The strongest love begins from a place of conflict. It's a volatile journey of committing and fighting and recommitting, but the effort is resolute and evolves into something so consuming the heart aches just thinking about it.

It's official, Pam Godwin is completely incapable of writing a book that I not only devour in one sitting, but I book I have yet to not absolutely love. And Dirty Ties was definitely no exception. It was different from her other books since it wasn't dar

3.5-4 stars!


This book was one helluva ride! It kept me on my toes, had numerous twists and reveals I didn’t see coming and most of all, was so steamy I was sure my iPad was going to combust. But at the same time I also felt a wee bit underwhelmed by it all and part of the reason is because of this misconception I had, so I do want to emphasize that this book is a contemporary erotic romance with suspense elements. I don’t know why I thought it was dark – probably because everything else I’ve rea

Wow! That was one hell of a sexy mysterious ride! Kaci Baskel is married to her gay best friend and they are being blackmailed by not only her evil stepfather but her own parents. You see, Trenchant Media is run by Collin and Kaci’s evil parents and our couple has been stuck following their rule for many years.

Kaci is so much more than what she seems in the corporate world. She is a Ducanti rider and has been having hot crazy fant

"No matter what happens or how volatile the journey, there will be no room for emptiness. I promise."

He was the only man who could arouse me and scare me in the same breath, who could make my pulse thunder so ferociously I felt carelessly drunk."

She was a dangerous distraction, exactly what I didn't want. Yet she was everything I never knew I was searching for.

Lies. Blackmail. Deceit. Control. Power.

Another stellar book to add to my every growing “I love Ms. Godwin shelf.” Dirty Ties was a STEAMY read!!!

I'm going to avoid discussing the majority of the plot so not spoil anything for the upcoming readers. However, I will share the blurb that outlines the essence of the book.

This is my first book by Pam Godwin, but it definitely won’t be my last. I loved this one about revenge and self-discovery. Our two main characters are on two different paths, but are highly motivated: one driven by revenge and the other by desire for freedom.

Every decision Logan has made for years has been driven by his need for revenge. When his mother was killed it forever altered his life and he wants the family behind her death to pay. As part of his plan Logan begi

Kaci is the daughter of one of the most two powerful business families. She has an arranged and fake marriage with Collin, her best-friend and the son of the other power family. They are both completely controlled by their families.
Logan seeks revenge for his mother’s homicide. In order to do that, he wants to kill the person who did it, Collin’s father and Kaci father in law. He needs to use Kaci in order to do that, and in the beginning he has no problem doing so.

The plot was a little contrived and too damned interwoven for my liking, still, it was well written and the pacing kept the reader engaged from start to finish.

So, why the 2 stars? Everyone was so gd old. Yes, I said it. I never knew I was an ageist but gosh darn it, they were all so old. The parents, Kaci, Logan/Evader, Collins, and on and on. Furthermore, Kaci was frigging unlikeable and for a woman in her late 30s who was also VP at a Fortune five O O company, she was plain ignorant and sill

This was really good. Pam Godwin is one seriously talented author chick.


This is the third book by her that I have read and all three have been quite original, something that is becoming increasingly difficult to achieve these days it seems.

All the plots have been different.
All the environments have been different.
All the characters have been different.

Kaci Baskel is a 37 yr. old beautiful woman living in Chicago who is controlled by her powerful, wealthy family. She lives a lavish lifestyle with her husband Collin who has been her best friend since she was a child. I must say I adored Collin! He is major swoon worthy, but her marriage is very unconventional, and nothing is what it seems. Most of her life she's tried to play a role and be what everyone else wa

Talk about hard, fast and dirty! Pam Godwin surely delivered one helluva read here that nearly made my Kindle spontaneously combust. It's official that Pam writes some of the best smut out there and being a fan of her dark reads, I'm not sure if I can possibly love this woman enough already.

Oh yes, that elevator scene lived up to its expectations and the brooding mystery of the notorious Evader surely got me hooked onto

“The strongest love begins from a place of conflict.”

Let me just start off by saying this was exactly what I needed after all the drama and mystery I had before. Something light and sexy and with a little danger on top. Perfect weekend read. Thanks to all my friends here who read this over the last week and who basically spammed my timeline with the most fabulous reviews. You just can't escape this book right now.

Anyway let’s get down to business…I was so looking forward to read this book since it had been raved about plus I never read anything from this author before so with full enthusiasm I picked ‘Dirty Ties’ for our BR. But….. I didn’t really enjoy it as much as I hoped!

Suspenseful. Mysterious. Hot as hell!

This was a captivating story about revenge, loyalty and love. I always look forward to Ms. Godwin's books because of the unique and well-developed characters and storylines. She always seems to put a different spin on things that makes her work stand out from others. I am constantly reevaluating my boundaries and stepping outside of my comfort zone when I read a story of hers. The content isn't the darkest or most shocking, it's in the subtle way

Dirty Ties is a masterpiece in the world of bikers. The story is different, unique with full of twist and surprises. Pam had me glued from page one till the end. I must have I felt so good to give this 5 stars rating. Been really awhile I was able to do that!

Here I go...a bit against popular opinion again. I'm not gonna lie...there's things I really loved about this book and things that just didn't connect well for me. Dirty Lies centers around Kaci and Collin, married because their parents essentially blackmailed them into it...with a contract. Collin is gay and his parents run a ruthless multi-media conglomerate. Both Kaci and Collin are pawns in their parent's sick, twisted, unlawful business dealings.

I have to be completely honest and admit that until 23% of Dirty Ties, I was almost sure that I'd DNF this book. Luckily, things turned around and new Pam Godwin novel ended as quite decent read. As in naughty fluff of awesomeness.

What I liked?

Revenge wasn’t an emotion. It was my inheritance, the acting force that lived in my blood and sustained my balance. It was my equilibrium.

What an incredible first read of the new year!!! Once I picked up Dirty Ties by Pam Godwin, I couldn't put it down. There were times when I tried to stop reading to get some sleep because I had to work the next day but ended up picking my Kindle right back up and finished the book around 2:30 AM. The lack of sleep was totally worth it!
