I've said it before, and I will say it again until the end of time: Pam Godwin is one of my very few go-to, auto-buy authors these days and I will basically read anything she publishes. She is a dark romance goddess and deserves to be worshiped. And I'm not just saying that because this was an ARC. I truly love and adore this series and Pam Godwin's story telling.

As always, Godwin nailed the attraction and chemistry between the two main leads...AND we got an awesome older woman/younge

Hell has no fury like a man deceived.

Dominate is the eighth book in Pam Godwin's Deliver series and I can't believe it's almost over. I've been reading these books since 2014 and it is by far my favorite dark romance series. I know I say this all the time, but I truly mean it... no one does dark romance as good as Pam Godwin. No one. Every book in this series is fantastic and this was no exception.

Dominate is book eight in the Deliver Series. Although each book can be read as a stand-alone, I highly recommend reading the series from the beginning in order to truly enjoy each character and the dynamics between the entire team. Tomas Dine has made a terrible mistake. After experiencing heartbreak and loss, he copes by writing his dead girlfriend emails. He has no idea that his emails are being read by another woman. Rylee Sutton discovered Tomas's emails at a time

Lethally gorgeous. Impossible to look away. He was violence and sex and salvation.
Salvation for trafficked women, not for her.
For her, he was corruption.
Death wasn’t off the table.

This series has quickly become an obsession for me. I live for Pam's dark and gritty words. Tommy's book has been a much anticipated one for me. Partly because it's an age gap with an older woman, and partly because I'm not THIS much closer to Cole's story.

Then she finds a lifeline in an email found in the pocket of a jacket she bought. Messages from a stranger meant for someone else bring her back to life. Over the next decade these emails speak to her soul, and she grows to care deeply about this boy who is now a man. She felt she knew Tomas
I have always loved Pam Godwin’s writing! Any book she puts out, I one click immediately! This series has been absolutely amazing, and if you enjoy really dark themes... then definitely pick this up! In saying all that though, this particular started off intriguing me like all of the others... but then towards the end, I became disappointed.

It all starts with a thrift store jacket and a note in the pocket. The girl ready to jump off the bridge reads it and BAM!! the first line punches you into the chest and a mad adrenaline rush of a story starts, it accelerates from 0 to 100 in mere seconds, gathering speed and legit the dizzying ride ends up with Rylee Sutton in Chihuahuan desert..a no man's land...full of scorpions and rattlesnakes...ALONE!!

When he was younger, Tomas Dine experienced a devastating loss and his bad luck continued on one fateful day, but in the present, he has a chosen family in the Freedom Fighters. While Tomas would never intentionally jeopardize his friends and the cause, he made a crucial mistake with Rylee Sutton that he must remedy. But Tomas doesn’t realize that Rylee is invested until he takes it too far.

Ten years ago, Rylee Sutton made a decision that changed her life. She cheered and cried along with Tomas Dine while he navigated his treacherous life, not even knowing she existed. Until one day, the situation changed and threw them in each other’s way where they potentially couldn’t recover from.

In her eighth opus of the Deliver series, Mrs Godwin embarks her readers on a breathtaking and scorching hot road. 

Dominate deals with Tomas' story. In the previous installment, we knew he was going to meet Rylee, whose life he (unknowingly) saved ten years ago.

At first, I was taken aback by Tomas' personality. He wasn't the man I recognized in the other books. Clearly, Rylee didn't either! Wow, who was this ruthless and cold-hearted man? Fortunately, the woman he had to deal with wasn't one to

“Everyone handles a broken heart differently. Some people only love once, and if they lose that love, they never look for it again. They find other things in life that stir their passions. Like their work. Their hobbies. Or throwing themselves behind an important cause”

Dominate was fantastic and truly deliciously dark because Pam Godwin is simply the Queen when it comes to the dark, filthy and delicious books. I love her writing and I love this series. I’m obsessed and invested. Dominate is Book 8 in this series, and while each book has a couple and an HEA, this should be read as a series to get the full experience. This was Tomas story. Tomas is one of the ex captives and a Freedom Fighter, also most recently has a big part in Luke’s book. I won’t rehash the ...more

I love, love Pam Godwin. She is an author that never disappoints me and this book was scorching hot!
I agree with some other reviewers that it is not as dark as the other books in the series.
This is Tommy 's story. Rylee takes the chance to meet with the man she had connected with for the last ten years through emails. But he has no idea who she is or that she has been spying on his private emails, all sent to his dead girlfriend.

This series sure knows how to give me a gut punch, like nothing else. Its so powerful. Some times it scares me.

So this was still a good book. I mean, Pam knows how to tell a story. But strangely... this was the hardest one to get behind the hero....

That sounds bonkers, given some of our heroes were Cartel King Pins and Capos and sex traffickers but.... Tomas went too far for me in his torture. For being someone who has been tortured before... it was too much.

This is the lowest rating I have given one of the books in this series.
The flow and pace is fantastic.
The mystery and suspense is pretty much spot on.
The darkness and the erotic adult sex scenes and beyond steamy.

So, why rate it the lowest of all the books in this series?
Well, a couple of reasons.

What a book!! This series has been brilliant from the start and its just been getting best with each book. This book is Tomas/Tommy and Rylee's book. After the way Unshackle ended i was dying to know how things were goin to work out with Tommy. After he found out about the emails he had written for his dead ex girlfriend were actually being read things weren't looking good for the person that had read them.

"Oh, Rylee." Laughing cruelly, he dodged her strikes and swatted away her fists. "You break my heart."
"You harden mine."

The eighth installment of the Deliver series gives us the elusive Tomas’s story. I’ve been curious about Tomas for a while just because he seems to be the quietest of the group, and then there was mention about how he hasn’t had sex in like 10 years… and let’s not forget the other mention about his 10 inch…(because I sure haven’t!) These are all the making

“It takes three seconds to make a life-or-death decision”

DOMINATE is a passionately intimate, combative, kinky and lethal love story with a fine line between love and hate that pushes the envelope in the most perversely delicious ways. It starts off unabashedly brutal and violent between two strangers who put the “Rule of Threes” to the test:

Well what can I say ... Pam did it again with another installment of the Deliver series. This one was hot and messed up just like all the other ones.

A message that he never,even in his wildest dreams,expected to get.

But while taking down the La Rocha cartel someone replied to his last email. Now he is on the hunt for the person who read his private thoughts.
