The blurb

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.

  
The review

The Contract is the first installment of what promises to be an extraordinary series!
We meet Lilly as she wakes up in a unknown place, which she can not escape from. She is being held captive, but doesn’t know why or by whom. We follow her as she looks through the recent events in her life for reasons that could have lead her to this place.

 

That is when she is presented by her captor (that she still hasn’t seen and remains unknown) with a contract… which she can simply not accept.

 

At the bottom of the contract, I see a small written note:
In short… (I flip the page over)
YOU ARE MINE.

 

A trial of strength between Lilly and her captor then starts, and the consequences for her might be to give up her freedom, or pride… or even her life.

 

Lilly has everything I’m looking for in a female character. She is incredibly strong-minded, but remains realistic, which is why I could completely relate to her. I also loved the flashbacks and the glimpse of her childhood, that were definitely useful to understand her personality.

 

I am also completely intrigued by JS… I can not wait to learn more about him. I must say I already love to hate him!

 

I found this book really captivating, I could not put it down. It was short (as announced by the author, each book in the series should be about 125 pages), and felt to me like watching the first episode of a new TV series. There are lots of things that are left unexplained, but you just know that you loved this first episode, the characters, and that something really big is coming in the next part.

 

I definitely can not wait to read the next book… and obviously the wait shouldn’t be too long as the second part should be released on April, 20th!

About the author

scarlett_edwardsI’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!
