When I wake up in a dark, unfamiliar room, I have no idea what's waiting for me in the shadows. My imagination conjures up demons of the worst kind.

Reality is much worse:

A collar with no leash. A prison with no walls. And a life stripped of meaning.

I am presented with a vile contract and asked to sign. It outlines the terms of my servitude. The only information I have about my captor are the two small letters inked at the bottom:  

Armed with only my memories, I must do everything I can to avoid becoming ensnared in his twisted mind games. But in the end, it all comes down to one choice:

Resist and die.
Or submit, and sign my life away.

Hmmmmm this is a bit hard to review. I liked what I read - I really really liked it. But I feel like I only got like the first few chapters of a book. The story will continue, there will be one in April and one every three weeks, per the author. However, I find myself wishing that it was a full book which I could rate on the merit of the whole instead of a few chapters. I’ve given this book a 4 because the story has HUGE potential.

The Author states “Uncovering You unfolds over multiple volumes of approximately 125 pages each. Each volume is a fully-contained story with a climax and conclusion.”

I didn’t feel that way at all. 125 pages was not near enough time to form a beginning, middle and end. There is definitely a very good beginning and I’m looking forward to reading the rest of this sort of “mini” series.

Lilly has been taken and even though she’s supposedly allowed to leave (so the letter states) that really is impossible to accomplish. She refuses to submit and therefore literally wastes away. During this process we get flashbacks into her past and what got her to this point. 

All she has to do is sign the contract. She has to choose between her life or her body. Which one will she choose? Will she realize who has taken her? Just exactly who is J.S.? 

The character development that Scarlett Edwards creates in 125 pages is amazing. She uses time wisely and moves the story forward with ease. The story goes from past to present but was very well written and not at all confusing.

The book ends at what I would consider the end of the beginning of a full-lenght book. The next “volume” will be available April 20, 2014, Uncovering You 2.

Scarlett Edwards: I live near beautiful Seattle, Washington. I grew up reading all types of fantasy books before discovering the wonderful world of romances in high school. Now, I spend most of my time writing about sexy men and the women who love them.
