Uncovering You 2: Submission by Scarlett Edwards
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What kind of sick, masochistic torture is this? No really, I want to know. It’s bad enough that I’m experiencing Lilly’s torture as if it were my own. But I feel even more abused because I can’t just sit down and endure one night of abuse in order to find out what happens, I have to take it in small, spread out doses because this is part of a serial. If the goal is to make the reader feel more attuned to Lilly’s plight, then Scarlett Edwards has accomplished her goal. I really could feel Lilly’s despair. But seeing as how it’s only been a few weeks and I had to struggle to remember Lilly’s background story, I’m still inclined to think this would be better combined into one novel. (I have a feeling Lilly's past might end up being an important part of what's happening right now but I can’t recall the specific details anymore.)
In UNCOVERING YOU 2, Lilly has agreed to sign Jeremy Stonehart’s contract and is now learning exactly what that entails (only, of course, in Jeremy’s time and at his whim). Jeremy comes across as truly sadistic and I cringed at so many things he said and did. I completely empathized with Lilly’s actions and reactions. I was completely enthralled in the story despite the emotional pain I endured in reading it.
I gave UNCOVERING YOU 2: SUBMISSION 5 stars not because I loved it, because I kind of hated it in that *you took me to a really dark place and I hated being there but it was so well-written and so perfectly told that I couldn’t help but be sucked in* kind of way. So okay, maybe that sounds like I did love it; I was just so caught up in the story that I was repulsed by it’s darkness because it felt entirely too real. If you want a small piece of advice, I don’t recommend reading this as a bedtime story—you won’t like the dreams you have as a result! I don’t even want to know the darkness Ms. Edwards had to tap into to write this story or to create someone like Jeremy, but I’m dying to see what happens and more importantly, why. If you’re in the mood for a truly dark story, this serial is the one for you. I will be a glutton for punishment waiting impatiently for May 10th when UNCOVERING YOU #3 comes out.
**On a bright note, each subsequent book in the UNCOVERING YOU series is set to be released 20 days after the one before it, so at least the wait isn't too long between each book.
