Joy Mathers has spent the last three years numb. From her past, her present, and her inevitable future. She was supposed to escape the deadbeat town of Chancing, but now it’s her prison, and she couldn’t leave…even if she wanted to.
For the last two years, Dawson Spencer has been holed up in some of the worst corners of the world. He’s seen things no man should ever see, and thought nothing could ever shock him. Until he returns to Chancing and discovers everything has changed in the town he once called home.
He thought Joy was away pursuing her dreams. She thought Dawson was never coming back. And while their connection might still be there, Joy isn’t Dawson’s anymore, and it would be better—safer—for everyone if he walked away. But walking away isn’t an option for Dawson, not this time.
He gave up everything to protect her once … and he’ll do it again

Jenny Siegel writes contemporary romance. When she’s not writing (or entertaining two little terrors) Jenny is glued to her Kindle, or plotting (also known as daydreaming) about hot tattooed heroes that will sweep a girl off her feet.
I was so excited to read Deliverance, this is one of those books that made me count down the days until I got my hands on a copy. Sometimes there are dark stories that are just too much to cope with, and then there are the ones that get it right, the ones that hold the right balance between dark and healing. This hit that balance right on the head. While it was a darker romance, it wasn’t one that will bring you down. There was so much to love.
I loved Joy, she was such a strong character and I loved watching overcome her challenges throughout the book. She has easily become one of my favorites. I instantly loved Dawson. He was an amazingly well developed character. Watching them both deal with and overcome their past keeps you sucked in from the very first page.
This was an overall great read, the only reason I would give this 4 ½ stars instead of 5 stars is that there were a few gaps in the storyline that left me with more questions than answers. Regardless I would definitely recommend this to others and more than likely read it again.
