Book Review ARC: Uncover Me by Linda Barlow

~ Categories ~ Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, BDSM

~ Blurb ~ 

All I did was take a few pictures. I didn't realize I was witnessing a crime.

I was hoping for a kick-ass adventure when I set off on my dream vacation. Instead, I've fallen in with a ruthless band of thieves.

Kidnapped, bound, and ordered to submit, I'm stuck on a yacht with a sun-bronzed pirate who caught me photographing his antiquities-smuggling operation. He doesn't want me tagging along any more than I want to be here. But that hasn't stopped him from finding a use for me.


She thinks I'm hard-assed. Dominating. Cruel. But I've got a dirty job to do. It has required months of scheming, a billionaire's yacht, and a shitload of priceless stolen artifacts.

I'm not about to be distracted by one inconvenient redhead. Even if she is supremely fuckable and oh-so-sweet when I have her on her knees.

She probably doesn't realize it, but I'm doing my best to protect her. There are guys here a lot badder than me. But I can't allow her to mess up my plans. There's no place in my life for softer emotions, and no space in my body for a heart.

I was given this ARC for an honest opinion.
~ My Review ~
This story is full of suspense, intrigue and some mild violence that keeps you on your toes till the very end. The author does a great job in the twists and turns of the plot so that you can’t see an obvious end of story. The hero is also not clear but we all want the hero to be the main man, Nick.

The scenery and background in the writing is done extremely well. I felt that I was on the ship and island with them and it was believable.

Young fiery Ellie is a photographer out taking pictures in Turkey and she ends up kidnapped by hot, hot Nick who is not a nice guy. She gets confused and wonders if the Stockholm Syndrome is effecting her. I really like Ellie for her strong stand she takes in standing up for herself even when her captor dominates her in all areas. This does cause issues when Nick wants her to be submissive.

Nick’s character was written so well that I actually wanted to be his captive and not resist him.  He showed compassion and cruel toughness in the blink of an eye. Honestly I just want him to be the good guy but you will have to read the book to see if I got my wish.

I recommend this book for people who love intrigue, love, BDSM and can handle a little bit of roughness.
