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

Excerpt:
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…

About the Author
I’m Scarlett Edwards. I wrote my first book as a college sophomore. After six months of edits, it made its debut as Yours to Savor.
 
That was at the start of 2013. I’ve written more books since then. You can find them all here.
 
It’s funny how quickly life changes. I used to think I’d need a degree to get a “Real Job.” Then I wrote a few books, they got somewhat popular, and now I’m living the life as a full-time romance author.
 
Thanks to all my readers for making my dreams come true!

My Review:
3 Stars

From the beginning, the synopsis grabbed my attention. I am finding I like the trend of these dark romances so the chance to preview a new one was not something I wanted to pass up. Right from the start the book takes you into the world of the heroine. It is dark and confusing and I was thrilled. I was eagerly devouring each page, ready to find out more about what was going on.

We are treated to flash backs as the heroine is trying to figure out where she is and how she got there. Then bam, the story ends. WHAT!? I literally shrieked when I turned the page and realized there was no more. I knew going in that this was just a first installment, but I really felt that we barely scratched the surface. I almost felt like I had just read the teaser at the back of a book. Even with this current and maddening trend of serials and cliffhangers, I really felt a little cheated with this book. The over all story was good and I was intrigued, however I felt like there wasn't enough of the story to call it a story. That is the only reason I am giving this one 3 stars. I am hoping the next installment will be just a tad more satisfying and I won't be left feeling like I only got a teaser of a book.
