Synopsis
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

In the dark, I lose all sense of time.

My sleep is thin. My wakefulness is misery.

A vague longing grows deep inside me. The need for submission. A natural willingness ground into me by the madness taking hold of my mind. I feel it rising. The demonic form consumes me from the womb, sapping my strength, and breaking my resolve.

A cry—no, a scream—rings out in the cold furnace of the night. My head jerks toward the sound.

Is it even night? I don’t know.

I am so tired. I am so lonely. I am breaking, and madness is taking hold.

It’s times like this that the animalistic urge to give in becomes nigh insatiable…


Note: Uncovering You is a serial. This means the story will be revealed over the course of multiple short novels; approximately 125 pages each. Every novel contains a complete story with a climax and conclusion.

"A vague longing grows deep inside me. The need for submission. A natural willingness ground into me by the madness taking hold of my mind."
This first installment begins Lily's journey with a confused and a bit frightened state of being. She has been kidnapped and at first, she has no clue as to where she is, how she got there, and who exactly put her there.
She cannot remember a single thing about the events leading up to the present location.
Her mind slowly begins to piece things together in a series of flashbacks. 
Those flashbacks seem to be more prominent than the present. We get Lily's back story and we're able to solve the puzzle right alongside her.

We don't get to meet the kidnapper just yet, however Lily does receive letters from "J.S." and she realizes who he is by the end of the novel.

Aside from the mystery of who Lily's kidnapper is, there are also other things that are eyebrow-raising worthy. There are flashbacks to her childhood years which include odd moments that seem to be important. 

Time gaps and back & forth structuring between past and present can sometimes fail in the execution. The composition of this story however was done really well. I think due to the mystery that both the character and reader are trying to solve, it worked.
The only complaint I had was the beginning which was a scene from the future. Though it gives us an idea of how Lily and J.S.'s relationship will work out, it was simply confusing. In my opinion, it wasn't really necessary, because it's never mentioned again in this first part of the series.

While there are similar key points to other erotic reads such as: a contract, a handsome billionaire, etc. That didn't really bother me and it was due in large part to the fact that this is in serial form and it's broken up into several sections so that factor isn't major. I don't think your mind will be preoccupied comparing this book to others.

This story certainly manages to intrigue the reader and our heroine leaves us with some pretty powerful words that make me eager to continue this series. This woman is strong and resilient. She's going to make her kidnapper pay… although I'm not sure exactly how, but I can't wait to find out.

It's tough to read serials because the anticipation is weighing on the heart & mind for so long, but if you're a fan of them and don't mind cliffhangers, check this one out.
