About this ebook

"A perfect dark cowboy romance. I loved Jake's dominance and pure love for Conor. I loved the estate and ranch. I loved the swoony sexiness. 5 Stars." ~ Pepper Winters, New York Times Bestselling Author

I try to forget her. 

It’s impossible. 

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. 

She’s mine. 

Contains: dark cowboy, alpha, dark romance, dominance, country music, western, Oklahoma, rural, small town, ranch, contemporary romance, suspense, murder, abuse, musician, guitar, second chance, coming of age, country boy, country girl

5 I died so many times stars!!! Jake and Conor grew up together and fell in love. They vowed to be each other's firsts in every way. But one night Conor is violated in the worst of ways while Jake is forced to watch. The incident sets their life on dangerous paths these people never could have imagined. Fate might have torn them apart but Jake knows Conor is his and he'll do anything to bring her back to him. I have so many feelings for this book but I cannot scream and shout and cry like I want to cause *spoilers*. This book has some of the most brutal scenes I've read and guys I've read all kinds of stuff. It's brutal because it's no hold barrels, it makes your heart hurt and it makes you feel the fiercest kind of pain. THAT IS WHAT I loved most about this book. If a book makes my heart lurch with pain, relief, grief and excitement that is the kind of book that I'll always keep in my heart. KNOTTED will forever be a special place in my dark soul because it left such a significant mark there that I can't ever undo it. Not that I want to. I admired Conor's strength. I loved Jake's resolve. I freaking adore Jarret and Lorne's loyalty. The tact with which Pam Godwin handled such a delicate issue is awe inspiring. I just cannot get over how she channeled the right emotions through Conor as a victim and Jake as a witness. I just cannot wait for more from this series because i know it's going to be other-worldly good.

I loved it. It was suspenseful, edgy and romantic. I cannot agree with the one woman who rated it poorly because of the early rape trauma. This changes the path for all the main characters - but eventually that leads to the truth and ultimately justice. The writing was right and precise - a few editing/grammatical/spelling errors, but I've come to expect that from people who rely on spell-check and text in less than complete words or sentences. The most glaring error was "signal-minded" when I believe "single-minded" was what was meant. Find an editor who actually reads for content and clarity.

Knotted will definitely have you tied up. Pam Godwin starts you off with a fairytale love. She shows you tender and amazing. You will live in the beauty that is their story before it all gets ripped away. I was a jagged mess reading this book. Ms. Godwin spares no expense when taking the reader on this suspenseful ride. She clearly had no concern for my emotional well being while she dragged me along. (It's completely her fault I cried like a baby.) But absolutely respect her the most for the beautifully executed healing process. I loved Jake's tenacious and unyielding need to help. I loved his love and devotion. I may not have liked all his actions but Jake is an incredible man. I think this band of friends is going to become part of my book family. Reviewed for Sweet Spot Sisterhood
