KNOTTED, Book #1 in the TRAILS OF SIN series
Genre: Dark Cowboy Romance
Series: HEAs with no cliffhangers. Each book is a different couple. Must be read in order.
I try to forget her.
Growing up together, Conor and I shared all our firsts.
First love, first kiss, first…
Not all our firsts.
We were sixteen the night she was violently assaulted while I helplessly watched.
I’ll never forget the sounds of her suffering.
Or my inconsolable agony when she left Oklahoma.
Years later, she returns to honor our teenage pact.
Except the boy she loved is gone, replaced by a ruthless cattle rancher knotted with secrets.
She doesn’t know my dark cravings or the trails of sin that lead to her.
I don’t deserve her, but one truth remains.
Review by Becky
Knotted by Pam Godwin
I was give a copy of the book for my honest review.
The four musketeers, Jake, Conor, Jarret, and Lorne, grew up together in a joint home with their fathers. Both of their mother’s were killed in an automobile accident when they were young. Jake and Conor were a couple. On Conor’s 16th birthday, Jake and Conor were going to take their relationship to the ultimate intimate level and Jarret and Lorne were going to be the look out team. Jake and Conor’s relationship was not condoned by the fathers. Jake had a bit of a bondage desire….hmmm….a cowboy with a liking to rope. That rope desire played in the special night of coming that Jake had planned. Someone had other plans….before Jake and Conor could become one, there were attacked. Conor was brutally raped while Jake had to endure by watching. Jarret and Lorne were able to get loose and get Jake loose and they chased down the abusers. During the chase, Lorne shot and killed a man. He was arrested and jailed for the murder.
Pam weaved the story of the after math of Conor’s rape and Lorne’s incarceration in the way Pam does best – twists and turns. When Jake has things in place, he brings Conor back to the ranch. The deep love Jake has for Conor is unmistakable. He has done his homework to help Conor address and work through her triggers from the rape and events following.
After the rape, the group make a pact to end any torment of Conor by her jailed rapist once he was released from prison.
I thoroughly enjoyed Jake and Conor’s story and look forward to reading about Jarret and Lorne’s stories.
Kudos Pam! Another written success!
