Review: Uncovered by Emily Snow

My name is Lizzie Connelly, and I have it all. The gorgeous apartment. The new job most women would rip out their own souls for—working for Margaret Emerson at Emerson & Taylor. I have one of those lives you’ve always dreamt about, the kind you only see on HBO. But, the thing is, that life is a lie. A façade.

It all started with one call. “Everything you know about your story—your father’s story—is a lie. It’s up to you to uncover everything.” One call, and I turned my world upside down to dig my way into Margaret’s life—the woman who I’d never laid eyes on until recently. My stepmother who took everything after my father died fourteen years ago.

The plan was simple—figure out what role she played in my father’s death and expose her to the world.

But here’s another thing: simplicity doesn’t exist, and my plans are flawed from the beginning because I never anticipated Oliver. Sexy, too smart for his own goddamn good, and infuriating, he’s the one person who could blow my plans to uncover Margaret. She’s his mother, and in another life, that would have made him my stepbrother.

I want to pretend that none of that matters, that I can simply finish what I came to do without sparing him a second glance and another thought.

Like I said, though, there’s no such thing as simplicity.

My real name is Gemma Emerson.

And this is my story.

I have been a huge Emily Snow fan for a few years now. Lucas Wolfe is one of my all time favorite rockers and book boyfriends. But move over Lucas because Oliver has arrived!

Gemma and Oliver’s story in Uncovered just moved into first place for Emily Snow books. I absolute LOVE Ms Snow’s writing style and read everything she puts publishes. This book had everything for me. Sexy man, strong powerful woman, hot sex, and my newest favorite a bit of a mystery.

Gemma’s father died years ago and left her with nothing. After her mother was killed, Gemma went to her looking for love and support. Only to be turned away. So Gemma struggled and made a life for herself as a high paid escort and phone sex operator. Then one night she gets a call suggesting that maybe there was more to her father’s death.

This book is Gemma’s journey to find out what happened to her father. While searching for answers, she finds love in the unusual place. This book had amazing twists and turns and kept me guessing throughout the whole thing. I figured some of the mystery out but not all of it and there were some pretty big shockers in there.

This book had me hooked from the very beginning and I never wanted to put it down.

Emily Snow is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the DEVOURED series (October 2012, January 2013) and TIDAL (December 2012). She loves books, sexy bad boys, and really loud rock music, so naturally, she writes stories about all three. Visit her blog at for news, teasers, and contests.
