Compulsive by @LiaFairchild Review

From Bestselling author, Lia Fairchild 

Lies hurt.

Lies destroy.

But some lies protect...and heal. At least that's what Gray Donovan had hoped for. She's a compulsive liar using it as a defense mechanism to survive life and her shattered past.

When she starts seeing therapist Daniel Harrison, she can no longer deny the truths that have haunted her for so many years. She must now stand and face them.

Opening up to Daniel leaves her exposed and vulnerable. When her soul is bared to him, she can't contain the attraction or the feelings he elicits.

Daniel feels drawn to his new patient, but knows he will have to fight it in order to resurrect Gray from her demons. His will and his judgment are tested when he must overcome his own doubts and face his own secrets.

**Content Warning: Due to language and sexual situations, this book is intended for 18+ Only**


Compulsive was my first read by Lia Fairchild and I can honestly say I was hooked from page one. I found the storyline interesting and unique and the characters complicated and flawed, but at the same time very likable. 

Gray has had a tough go of things and the coping mechanism she uses to deal with this trauma is compulsive lying. Gray lies about everything, even when it isn’t necessary. She lives a destructive lifestyle and is constantly trying to keep her past a bay. When her boss and friend have just about had enough, she gives her a choice, lose your job or get therapy to deal with your issues. 

Enter Dr. Daniel! When these two are in a room together the electricity is undeniable. Gray finds herself for the first time opening up and actually telling the truth. The sexual tension between these two is off the charts but both of these characters have their own issues not to mention the fact that he is her therapist! 

This is definitely not your typical romance so don’t go in thinking it’s going to follow that typical story arch. This book was emotional, sexy and very well written. I absolutely cannot wait to read the next book in this series and I highly recommend this one! Lia has a new fan!
