Product Description

"So amazingly written and absolutely heartbreaking." Maryse's Book Blog

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 he 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**

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreak, hope, and the possibility of love 29 June 2015

I cried more than once while reading this. I was fully absorbed in this story of a compulsive liar, who used lying to cope with so much sadness and grief.

Her name is Gray. She uses men, alcohol, and lies to cope with life. Nathan is her safety blanket, and she's not open with her shrink. But Alyssa, a neglected teen, allows her to bond. Then there is Dr. Harrison... Because of her trying to get him as her new shrink, there are unexpected developments. I cried, laughed, and enjoyed it all.

There are a couple of sex scenes, and there is much to do with death of loved ones. Just a heads up.

The story has many layers and storylines, all work well together. This is book 1 and ends in a bit of a cliffhanger. I'm ready for book 2!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read!!!! 28 February 2016

When I first started reading Compulsive, I wasn't sure what to expect. The story of Grey and her life sucked me in. I felt as if I was on this journey with her. Tears of joy when good things happened and tears of sadness when they didn't. Grey dealt with a lot of sadness and hurt at such a young age. The way she dealt with death, I can relate with Grey in so many ways. Sex, drugs , alcohol, and lying were some of the ways she dealt with her pain. Grey was so good at lying that she lied to herself. That was the way she coped with rejection and death. Grey was hurting and couldn't see the people closest to her were there when she needed them. Grey's biggest challenges were forgiving herself and her father for all the heartbreak in her life. In comes Daniel and his family. Grey learns she can trust Daniel and really opens up about her life. She learned lying was not getting her anywhere so she tried the truth. It helped her move on with her life. I can't wait to read more about Grey and Daniel.

I received this book as a gift from the author for an honest review.

This book was awesome!!! Definitely a taboo affair going on here!!! I loved that it wasn't all steam and unrealistic attraction. Gray and Daniel had issues that were handled and addressed. This is a story that makes you feel like there's a solid base to their relationship. It's definitely not all sunshine and fluffy bunnies!!! This story is full of heartbreak... realistic life issues... taboo relationships... coping mechanisms... and true friendship!!! Can't wait to see where this road leads all the characters!!!

A beautifully written story with everything, love/heartache/excitement. Gray is a compulsive liar, but loveable. Daniel is her therapist, very professional and very sexy. The slow burn of this story is awesome.
You're pulling for Gray through~out this whole book. She deserves to be happy as she's had such a crap life.
Leave it to Mr. Hottie psychiatrist to pull out all her demons and Make her whole again.
Everyone should read this book.
