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.

 

1thoughtsThis is more of a set-up short story for the series than an actual story in itself. Lilly has flashbacks of both her childhood and the time leading up to her capture. It’s with these flashbacks that she pieces together who her captor is.

Maybe now that that is out of the way the story will take off in the next book. You really don’t know anything about the two people yet. Just that Lilly is being held against her will and the only way to escape is to sign a contract saying that the willingly signed over her rights to JS.

I wish there was a little more meat to this book because nothing really happened. It was just a snippet of Lilly being in an unknown room as she goes in and out of consciousness with dreams of her past. I will keep an eye out for the next volume as I’m sure that’s where the real story begins.

Every aspect of my life was governed by a madman. He would continue feeding me, barely enough to live, while tempting me with the relief that would come when my signature scratched on the empty line of that filthy piece of paper.”
