Reseña del editor
Her life is like a prison cell. A self-made, to-hell-with-the-free-world existence that locks from the inside. Stop judging. Her agoraphobia doesn’t define her. It simply keeps her safe. He belongs in a prison cell. The 6x8, make-me-your-b*tch variety that locks from the outside. But he’s free. To hunt. To take. To break. And he just found a sexy new toy. Capturing her is the easy part. Her f*cked-up mind, however, makes him question everything he does next. But he’s a determined bastard. If all goes his way, this will hurt like hell.

This is the second book in this series after Deliever. I guess it could be read as a standalone, but I wouldn't recommend it. You get way more out of it if you meet Van in his natural habitat first.
After Liv and Joshua escaped the slave trade and killed Mr. E, their boss and Van's father, they left Van thinking he'd died. Obviously he didn't but he has spent the last year doing what he does best, stalking Liv and Joshua trying to find out what connections they have and if he can find a opening to see the one thing Liv has that he doesn't. Their daughter Livana.
On a stake out of their house, Van starts to use the abandoned house next door. But things aren't as they seem because the house isn't abandoned, just shut up tight because Amber is agoraphobic and hasn't left the house in two years. She used the delivery man to get things from her house to the mailbox and also to relieve a little sexual tension. When she sees Van on her front porch, things get a little crazy.
You See Van is not normal. He had a terrible childhood and when his slave owning dad needed cover, he brought his son back to work as the face of his salve ring. Now even though that part of his life is over, Van still has tendencies toward terrible behavior and he decides that the way to get his daughter back is to have a character reference. In his twisted mind, if he can get Amber fixed she can tell Liv just how much he's changed. The only problem though is that to get he out of her house, he has to kidnap her. Thus begins the tug and pull of crazy behavior and brittle hearts.
Pam Godwin is a flipping genius. She's able to take these dark, gritty and clearly damaged characters and create light and love from all this broken pieces. Starting this book and knowing Van, I had hope for redemption but didn't see how it was possible. But by the end I had a silly grin on my face and was aweing over Van and his beautiful transformation.
Then there's Amber. Her tale was just as tragic but in a completely different way. She had not just one life changing mental illness but at least three. Watching her go through her transformation was not easy. Not just because I felt a soul deep crushing pain for her but because of Van's less than traditional means of pulling her out of her head.
There sexual tension was off the charts. Even as I cringed at some parts, I was still looking for the closest fan. Through the whole book I wished for their peace and hoped they'd find it in each other.
I was completely blown away once again with Pam's stellar writing, fabulous character building and her ability to create light out of the darkest recesses humans had to offer. She is the queen of the dark read and I can't wait for more.
Left for dead at the end of Deliver, he's back, and a year later, we finally get to meet the real Van Quiso. I honestly didn't hold out much hope that Pam Godwin could in any way redeem the harsh and twisted antihero, but I confess I closed my kindle happy that his demons were 'vanquished'.
A puppet, used in a cog of a human trafficking ring, Van is cruel and unfeeling, and after a year, still obsessed with Liv, I won't address that reference because you must read Deliver first, but Liv has something that Van wants, and he's determined to make her believe he's worthy enough to have it.
A surprise encounter with Amber and suddenly his path is clear, but is it? Amber is more broken than Van, but together....hmmm. Well, like I said, unexpected.
I've never encountered, or had to deal with anyone who's struggled with our MC's issues, but kudos to the author for the amount of research needed to even tell the stories in this series. After reading Deliver (book 1) I was reluctant to go straight into Vanquish, because Deliver was so difficult to read at times, but to anyone reading my review, do it, read Vanquish immediately after Deliver, I'm delighted to finally have Van's backstory and even happier to release all that pent up anger I was harboring for him! If you're not a Pam Godwin fan this series will change that, I highly recommend you take this journey with her!
