    3 StarsSadly, this was just not my favorite Pam Godwin, which sucks, cause it started off really strong for me. Seriously, I was hooked by page one.This is an ARC, so I need to be vague - but I just didn't like the actions of one of the main characters. It didn't sit well with me, it didn't fit the characterization for that character up to that point (in my opinion), and it tainted the book for me from that point on. That said, this book was fuck...

    4.25 stars! OMG Pam Godwin- what have you done to me with this book? This story was unputdownable. Literally. I started it in the evening and did not put it down until I finished. It hooked me from the start and didn't let go till the very last page. I felt invested all the way through, and I love when that happens! Knotted is the story of brothers Jake and Jarret, along with siblings Conor and Lorne. Conor and Jake have been together for a whil...

    5 He's My Heaven Stars!(ARC provided by author) -There's something in that look of his I'll never find in another person. It's the bridge between us, the bond that cements us together. This is a story about four childhood friends who grew up together on a ranch in Oklahoma, and were inseparable. It's a brother and sister, Lorne & Conor, and twin brothers Jake & Jerret. The Julep Ranch was the center of their lives where their families shared a h...

    I absolutely loved Pam Godwin's "Deliver" series, and when I found out she was gonna write another dark romance series with cowboys.... I was all over that !!At first I figured this was gonna be a trilogy with cliffhangers, so imagine my relieve, when I found out that each book was gonna center around a different couple. They still need to be read in order, but they all have their own HEA ,and better yet NO cliffhanger!!If you have read some of...

    I've been eager to read a book by Pam Godwin for a long time, have had Dirty Ties on my Kindle for a while. Finally, finally I had the chance to find out what the rave is all about. I do have a couple of her books on my kindle but you know...#bloggerproblems. When I saw the blurb for Knotted I WAS SO IN. It promises angsty, heartbreak and a wicked cowboy. Yes. Yes. AAAAND YES, PLEASE!Despite knowing what the blurb was alluding to I was kept in a ...

    After only having read a couple of chapters of Knotted my heart was ripped open. It was brutal, it was beyond intense and excruciating. That was all it took for me to be captured by Pam Godwin’s new book and her characters Conor, Jake, Jarrett and Lorne.Knotted is all about loyalty and sacrifice. Love and losses. Forgiveness and acceptance. This group of people are family and best friends. They’ll do everything together and trust each other e...

  • Lana ❇✾Dirty Girl Romance❇✾
    3.5 STARS With a hand in my hair and the other on my hip, he bends me into his heat and sets fire to my world. No matter what she writes, Pam Godwin never fails to bring her signature grit to the stories that make them simply unputdownable. When I saw she'll be coming out with a brand new series revolving around kinky cowboys, I'm not even sure I took a moment to blink before adding these bad boys to my TBR. And while I should be used to her kn...

    4.5 “Tied Together” StarsWhat a start to a new series by one of my favorite authors! Emotional, sexy, captivating. Knotted is a second chance romance with a dark twist that exemplifies everything I‘ve come to expect and love from a Pam Godwin novel. Jake and Conor’s story was heartbreaking and yet so full of love. They knew from a very young age that they were meant to be but life got in the way and everything changed. Jake and Conor are ...

    ❝He's fire and ruthlessness, and I'm desperate to be burned and consumed. Together, we're a grunting, hungry battlefield, hunting and raiding, chasing and pillaging.❞ You guys! I read 'Knotted by Pam Godwin, throughout the night! I started at 10:00pm thinking I would read for an hour, at most, and then go to sleep. I last looked at the clock at 3:00am. I’m not sure when I fell asleep but I awoke at 7:30 with my book on my chest. I immedia...

    The high points can also be the darkest...***3.5 stars***I’ve been reading Knotted over the last couple of days. As a favour to you, I’m going to share a tip…DON’T START READING THIS ONE JUST BEFORE BEDTIME!!! Sorry for shouting, but I can tell you, this book messed with me a little. I tried to go to bed at my normal time after reading a few pages, then tossed and turned overthinking what I had just read. Two hours later (and a wee bit fr...
  • Deanna❤Pink Lady❤️
    This review is hard to write. I’m conflicted, so here it goes. The basis of this story revolves around a fateful, tragic, brutal, devastating night. The characters, twins(Jake and Jarret) and brother and sister(Lorne and Conor) , were just 16, 17, and 18 years old. Conor and Jake were childhood sweethearts. Always knowing that they were the one for each other. Even though they were young, the connection was intense and forever knowing. They gre...

    *ARC provided by the author for an honest review*Wow I don't even know where to start with this book, it was amazing. The story had me addicted from the start to finish. Once I started the story I couldn't put down. The story had me heartbroken. Conor and Jake go through so much throughout this book.

    Wow...this was dark but in the end scorching hot! Jake is one hot, gorgeous, dominant cowboy and his protective side knows no bounds. Poor Conor has gone through hell. Basically the worst hell and then just when she thinks she might survive, gets kicked in the face and has to go through hell AGAIN. She's such a strong character and a survivor to actually pick herself up and still go after her goals. I'm in awe of her determination and strength. T...

    4.5 StarsThis book has everything; suspense, angst, romance, betrayal and a trigger scene or two so heed the warnings. Spanning the life and relationship of Connor and Jake between the age of 16 through roughly 24. If you enjoy alpha males, thrillers, badass heroines and a story line that will keep you on the edge then pick this one up. This is the first in a trilogy but may be read as a stand alone, I for one will be devouring them all as soon a...

    One  more amazing read from Godwin stable, lassoes your heart and hog ties your interest from the very first word !!! YeeeeeHaw!It's Dark and intense, sometimes ominous and dreadful, filled with cries from helpless heart, pain of broken soul, piercing and sharp. I swear it's embedded deep and I will be thinking about it for days. This story was supposed to be about kinky cowboys, sexy enough to soak your panties, not soak your eyes!! But Pam man...
  • ~ Stéphanie ~ Tied up in Romance ~
    I started reading Knotted on Saturday morning without reading the blurb. I didn’t remember what it was because let’s be honest Pam Godwin is an auto-buy author for me and I would read whatever she writes. After a few pages, I was quite surprised to see how sexy and sweet this was. I was starting to wonder if I read a Pam Godwin’s book until the moment where all goes to hell. It wasn’t that far… 10% maybe. But I was all in! I needed to k...
  • Helene Book Hoarder
    WOW!!! Pam Godwin... three days later and I'm still floating. I normally seek Happy Romance, I stay away from the dark.. but when it comes to Pam, I'm one to be the first on line. I was left shattered by the end of chapter one. By the end of chapter two I was screaming and full out snot crying, I literally felt pain... I was broken. Pam takes you to the left then to the right in seconds.. I went through the wheel of emotions, I started off with f...
  • Angela (Reading Frenzy Book Blog)
    Upon more reflection, I've updated my rating to 3.5 stars.Nobody does dark and dirty quite like Pam Godwin. Knotted is the first book in the Trails of Sin series, and if you like mysteries and sultry second chance romance, this book has you covered. Conor and Jake are childhood sweethearts in this story about four best friends who grow up together on a ranch. The pair are teenagers at the start of the story, and their attraction is already intens...
  • Arivanh
    My most anticipated book of the year and Ms. Godwin did not disappoint! It has been a long time since I read a cowboy romance; however Knotted is not your average cowboy romance it is a dark second romance. It is a story about survival, healing and taking the law into your own hands. Jake and Conor's story is highly emotional and heartbreaking. Be prepared because you will find yourself on an emotional rollercoaster with this one.
  • Kim BookJunkie
    ***ARC provided by the author in exchange for my review*** “We’re knotted together, and damn if he doesn’t know how to tie a knot that withstands the test of time” All I knew about this book before I started reading it was that it was about Cowboys, it was dark and that it was written by one of my favorite authors, Pam Godwin. I do not like country Western’s or Cowboys - I don’t even like country music - but I love Pam so I gave it a ...

    "He uncurls his hand and stares at the scar on his palm, his expression stark. I press my thumb against my own scar..........The blood oath hasn't changed. We both know it."Well fuck me sideways...Knotted was sooo much more than a Cowboy, the Cowgirl, the love story, the chase, the HAWT Alpha male. Yesss Knotted was sooo much more!!!
