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: J.S.
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.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Technically, Scarlett Edwards did warn me:
“The full story of Lily (captive) and J.S. (captor) unfolds over multiple volumes of approximately 125 pages each, like serials. Each volume, though, is a FULL story with a climax and conclusion.”I knew you couldn’t fit the entire story in 125 pages. I knew it was serial-like. It’s not as if I thought Lily would be free by the end. But I didn’t realize just how little I’d get in the first edition. I mean, I wanted to experience J.S. at least. Ms. Edwards did say there’d be a FULL story with a climax and conclusion, after all. And okay, technically, I got it. It did have that. Just not at all in the way I was expecting. What I did get, though, was an extremely captivating story with an even more enticing ending that has me salivating for UNCOVERING YOU 2: SUBMISSION.
Lily wakes up with a collar around her neck—no idea where she is or how she got there. She is unable to leave and forced to choose between her life and her freedom. Lily is not new to difficult decisions. She’s never had an easy life and she’s worked hard for everything she’s ever received. So she’s not about to just roll over and take this lying down. But J.S. is not a man to be refused and he seems to have no limitations on how far he’s willing to go to get his way.
Told in a series of present time and flashbacks, Lily’s story is equal parts horrifying and mesmerizing. I was completely repulsed by the lengths J.S. went to in order to force Lily into submission, but when Lily finally realizes who J.S. really is, I was equally entranced by the person he was when she met him. I have no idea what I’ll think of him in SUBMISSION but I can guarantee I’ll be waiting excitedly to find out.
Bravo, Scarlett Edwards. You accomplished your goal. I’m mad you’re making me wait but I will wait. I just hope at the end of this series I will understand why you tortured me with tiny morsels instead of a few longer and more substantial books.
