Tula Gomez is in the most ruthless prison in Latin America.

She only drove to Mexico to help her sister. She did nothing wrong.
But her quiet life changed in an instant.

To survive the violent, cartel-controlled prison where men blend with women, she pledges her loyalty to the notorious leader in exchange for the one thing she needs most.

When she agrees to seduce the suspicious new inmates, Martin Lockwood and Ricky Saldivar, she doesn't expect to enjoy it. Sure, they're gorgeous, irresistibly alpha, and insanely talented with their hands and mouths. But they're the enemy. She can't fall for them.

Torn between her cartel loyalties and two men who want her as deeply as they want each other, she questions who is manipulating whom. Her search for answers leads to a passionate ménage, a soul-crushing secret, and an impossible choice.

About the Author

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, Pam Godwin, lives in the Midwest with her husband, their two children, and a foulmouthed parrot. When she ran away, she traveled fourteen countries across five continents, attended three universities, and married the vocalist of her favorite rock band.
Java, tobacco, and dark romance novels are her favorite indulgences, and might be considered more unhealthy than her aversion to sleeping, eating meat, and dolls with blinking eyes.

Hot AF mmf, my absolute FAV, and Ms. Godwin nailed it - the passion, the emotions - this one will keep you flipping pages until 2am even though you know the kids first day of school vaca begins in the morning and you'll be ripping your hair out before breakfast time. She slayed me with Joshua's story in Deliver, and every title since then in the Deliver Series, has left me salivating, trembling, and whimpering for more. A must read for anyone who loves the dark, the touch of horror, the gratification that comes from reading a consuming sex scene. Yeah. All that.

After being framed for drug smuggling, Tula Gomez was forced to accept her predicament. Being incarcerated in one of the worst prisons in Mexico has made her fierce and vigilant at all times. In two years time, she became one of the most trusted members of the La Rocha Cartel. Freedom Fighters' Ricky and Martin was assigned to infiltrate the La Rocha Cartel who are allegedly into sex/human trafficking. Their "arranged" imprisonment raised suspicion among the members of the cartel. That's why Hector, head of the cartel, asked Tula to charm the Americans to get intel on what's the real reason behind their imprisonment. Will Tula succeed in knowing it? Manipulate is completely engrossing and intense that will evoke a spine-tingling emotion when you meet these characters. Everyone has an agenda to outdo one another, the question is... who will manipulate who? So brace yourself for this is going to be one dark, twisted, and hot AF but enjoyable read. Tula, Ricky, and Martin are flawed by different circumstances but they find each other and the love they all deserved. If you wish to give this series a try, read the first book first. That has a background you’ll need to enjoy the series and also reading them in order for you to savor each character. This series is a dark romance that will push you out of your comfort zone. I have enjoyed them all and look forward to the next. A great series I highly recommend!

OMG!!! Never Manipulation felt so good!!! I know I already said that about the previous book, but this one is my new favorite of the series!  That's simple, there are stories you never want to reach the end of, and Manipulate is one of them. At turn dangerous, sensual, gruesome, raw and sweet, Ricky, Tula and Martin's story had my head spinning with the depth of their emotions.  I felt for everyone of them, hurting with them, sharing their heartache and their losses. I fought their demons and smiled at their intimacy.  Tula is such a resilient woman! Her metamorphosis  from the sweet English teacher she was into the confident, lethal and determined inmate was incredible. Between the intense damaged Martin and the charming and laid-back Ricky, she both stood her ground and submitted to their seduction. The author mastered the balance of this incredible trio. Their complicity, the longing and the frustration they dealt in their relationship is one I rarely felt.  What a book...dark, gritty, the atmosphere completely kept me on the edge of my seat whereas the expiration time had me biting my nails. Until I couldn't hold back the tears...

Another great book in this dark and gritty series! Scorching hot chemistry between Martin, Ricky and Tula will keep you turning the pages. As well as the twist and turns in this roller coaster ride of a storyline. How three souls can come together to heal and flourish. I highly recommend this gripping read.

Gahhhhhhhhh! How do I start this commentary!?! Pam Godwin, I bow down to your masterful mind f@ckery! Manipulate gives me closure and get teases me to extremes. I have zero shame in admitting Ricky and Martin have been teasing my filthy brain since Pam first whispered their connection in our ears. Then she let us "see" it come alive and there was no stopping my NEED, my aching desire, to see these two work through everything. I won't even say that my fantasies played a part in my enjoyment because though I'm a dreamer about the MFM/MMF it was the intrinsic connection that had me sold! Manipulate me all you want. I was clearly putty in Pam Gordon's hands. I have no regrets. I have a new lady crush. And now I'm back to square one...I'm panting for the next installment. Trying not to hold my breath in anticipation for the next adventure... Reviewed for Sweet Spot Sisterhood

Manipulate is the 6th book and another phenomenal addition to the Deliver series. From page one, it was intense, shocking and had me hooked until the very end. This is Ricky, Martin and Tula's story. The characters were flawed and well-developed yet very likable and you will be invested in their story. The storyline was gritty and raw at times, filled with heart-racing action, gut-wrenching scenes, love and some of the most smoking hott M/M M/F/M scenes you will ever read. I think Pam out did herself with this novel. It will evoke so many emotions in you with all its different twists and turns, you won't know what to expect next. Without a doubt, now one of my favorite books in this series Manipulate is definitely worthy of a 5 star status. I loved it and would highly recommend it to all lovers of dark romances.

These three, this story, oh my heart! It broke, it cracked, it bled, and it didn’t want to let them go. Tula, Ricky, and Martin, poor, sweet Martin, they were innocents who knew evil. Ricky, the evil set him free, and he settled into his existence. Tula, the evil was always like a cloud hanging over her, and then it became real, and she resisted it. Martin knew evil too young, and it still darkened his heart, his soul, his being. And I knew, I knew they were too good and their story would hurt too much. As soon as I started the book, I sensed Tula’s inner heart and soul, and I cringed, because I knew it would be bad, and I would hurt for her. But I always got her strength, her ability to carry on, and her desire to survive. I wasn’t wrong, and she showed it at every turn, every twist, every pain inflicted upon her Ricky was who he was, and he was perfect. He had been set free and found himself from the wrongs done to him. He absorbed it, and became the man he was, but he still didn’t get what he wanted, a true relationship with his best friend Martin. Martin, who was still broken inside from events before, and after solidified that break. It takes Tula to show him his shadows, and it takes both her and Ricky to bring it out in the open. To have him start to heal, to start to feel, and to start to find who he is now

You better hold on because this read pulls out all the stops. The gripping story is jam-packed with muscle clenching tension and blistering heat. The darkness is thick; so thick sometimes it is just suffocating. Big twists will leave you stunned. Ricky, Tula and Martin's story will leave you breathless with their intensity and chemistry. A book that is definately not for all readers but if you are a fan of books with a sharp edge, sweltering scenes and content that will push you out of your comfort zone, I highly recommend grabbing this book.

Just the cover alone was enough to have me begging for this book. Please glet me this book. Please. Please. Pretty. Please. I finished it this morning. I read it on my usual commute on the bus, knowing at 85% done and Monday morning traffic I was likely to finish it. Arrived at the bus stop, 2 chapters to go. My whimpers of distress were largely ignored by my fellow bus passengers.. No one came to comfort the crying mad woman at the back of the bus. The only thing to do and the right thing to do was to go to my desk and finish it. Ok so the Head of Commercial department may have been sat a couple of desks away from me. Get thee gone my boss’s, boss’s, boss - Tula, Ricky and Martin need to get to the conclusion. Their lives depended on it. My life depended on it. Some 10 hours later, my heart has stopped racing, my breathing has returned to normal, I’ve messaged Pam Godwin and told her she is sick and twisted but my word, I loved, loved, loved this book. Threesomes are totally my jam (in books not in RL). This series just keeps getting better and better. Tula, Ricky and Martin are my new favourites. “This is love. It slays and conquers and never looks back.”

Manipulate had me strung out on emotions. It was a wild ride that is not for the faint hearted as it tackles issues, that may be triggering to some in graphic detail. The sex scenes are smoking hot, I think they might be the hottest of the series this far. I think what I loved most about was the dynamics between the main characters and their resilience. I loved that they didn't allow circumstances or their past experiences to dictate their future. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series and definitely recommend to those who love dark romance.

Manipulate is the 6th book in the Deliver series. I had to take a few days before I wrote my review. To digest what I had read. I love ménage romance books and there were some hot scenes. But I think the location (prison) was a little tough for me. By the way, I highly suggest you read the other books in the order that Pam Godwin has provided in her blurb for this book. This book is dark and for those that have triggers proceed with caution. While reading Manipulate I felt like I was reading it with my hands over my eyes with a little opening so that I could read the words. Manipulate was suspenseful, it was dark and dirty and I couldn’t put this book down. Now I am looking forward to Unshackle #7. It can’t come out fast enough!

How can life turn in such an unpredictable way? Tula Gomez enjoys her life as a school teacher in Arizona. The comforts of her quiet life bring a sense of peace and stability. The only chaos that barrel’s through Tula’s life, is the connection to her sister back in Mexico. Whenever Vera calls, Tula jumps into action. So it was no surprise that Tula found herself crossing the border into Mexico when her sister called needing money. Nothing could have prepared Tula for the way her life would change from that one phone call. After the inability to locate her sister, Tula finds herself arrested and charged with a crime that she didn’t commit. Facing incarceration at one of the country’s most dangerous prisons, Tula knows that she will have to be cunning and resourceful to stay alive. A little intervention from one of the biggest cartel leaders may be the answer that Tula is looking for. Cell Block 3 is Tula’s home for the duration of her incarceration. It is a lonely existence to stay out of harms way, so it is no surprise that the recent addition of two Americans to the prison would capture Tula’s attention. At the direction of the cartel, Tula is tasked with the job of discovering the reason these two prisoners are in essence ‘ghosts’. As Tula takes on the task of uncovering more about the American duo, she finds an attraction that will bring the two men closer in more ways than one. Secrets are swirling all around the prison, and this trio will find themselves in the center of all of the turmoil and tragedy. What a tragic and captivating novel!! Manipulate is the latest addition to the Deliver series by Pam Godwin. Don’t let the tagline of Dark Romance push you away. Pam is known for her twists and turns that you simply will not be able to pull yourself away from. Tula’s story is raw and full of shocking revelations. The addition of Martin and Ricky will add just the right touch to a trio that is sure to set your reader on fire!! Manipulate is dark, destructive, and full of unbridled passion! Make sure to read the previous books in the series so you don’t lose any elements of connection between the characters. Manipulate is definitely a must have for Pam Godwin fans!!

Tula Gomez thought her trip was going to be just another routine visit to her sister in Mexico. But her luck ran out and she ended up all alone in a notorious prison full of violent criminals. She did whatever it took to survive, until new inmates Ricky Saldivar and Martin Lockwood shook up her foundation and risked crumbling her future. Right from the beginning, this book set the tone for the rest of the story - dark, depraved, and violent. I was able to immerse myself in the oppressive ambiance by the characters’ experiences. I loved how Tula was such a tough character for having to go through those nightmares. Ricky was sexy and amusing but my heart went to Martin because I’m drawn to characters with a certain past. Tula and Martin were well developed but I wanted to know more about Ricky’s past. The sex scenes were hot and intense especially the ones that were on the verge or brutality. I enjoyed the overall storyline. However, a certain character’s turning point seemed too easy. I would have preferred more angst accompanying the decision. Also, I have to say that I really liked the villains. Yes both of them. Manipulate is a story survival and turning back to life. I would appeal to readers who enjoy a graphic dark erotic romance.

Holy moly this book was freaking good! What Tula went through in that prison was heartbreaking. But Martin’s trauma completely tore me apart. I loved his friendship with Ricky and how that trust and Tula’s nurturing started to break down his walls. Such a gritty and emotional journey throughout this story. So many twists and horrifying discoveries. I was shocked and then surprised I was shocked. The book was so well written with the way the plot unfolded and the build up to the next story. This series has been dark, delicious and one I will recommend to everyone.

Manipulation is book six in the Deliver series. This series must be read in order. This series is so good you won’t want to miss out on them. We now get Ricky and Martins story. They are planted in a notorious prison. There they meet Tula and their lives change forever. This is an epic series for dark lovers. Expect the unexpected with this author. Be warned there are triggers in this book. I’m so looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.
