Pam Godwin is at the top of my list of favorite authors. Her dark and thrilling stories are among my most treasured books so I was absolutely thrilled to read a copy of Dirty Ties. I loved the crime/thriller/revenge twists in this story. As with all of Ms. Godwin’s books, the characters are engaging, the story is twisted, and the steam factor is completely off the charts.
Kaci is highly educated, hard working and a loyal wife to Collin. Their unconventional marriage has led to a lonely life for Kaci and she is desperately seeking the intimacy that is missing from with her husband. Her fascination with the underground racing circuit in Chicago leads her to the mysterious “Evader”, a man who has plenty of secrets himself. These two become enmeshed in a dangerous game that will certainly leave one the of them broken.
I love how Ms. Godwin always writes very strong heroines who aren’t afraid to go after what they want. Her women are determined, smart and driven, and Kaci is no different. She might have met her match with a sexy man she meets one night, and these two together were absolute magic!
“She was a wild card, and that fucking terrified me.”
Lightening up this dark and sexy story are some humorous moments which were a welcome relief from the intense storyline. I especially loved Kaci and Collin’s interactions and Kaci’s internal debates, especially when it came to the hot new guy she meets:
“What about me?” The possessive hand on my thigh clenched. “Are you interested?”
Oh, let me count the ways. And each one led to heartbreak.”
There were lots of twists and turns in this one! Loved the story. Dirty Ties is another great book from Pam Godwin!
