Bestselling and award winning author, Lydia Michaels, unleashes the “taboo” in a scorching psychological tale that breaks the rules of fidelity and redefines perfect in a Dominant/submissive, poly-amorous romance that delivers!
On the outside, our life looks perfect. Inside, I’m screaming.
I suffer from severe and profound OCD, triggered by a trauma I survived when I was a young girl. My husband saved me. I crave order, because chaos stirs the messy parts of my mind I’d rather keep tied down.
But when my husband’s ex-lover shows up unannounced–a man I had no idea existed from a secret part of my husband’s past he kept hidden from me–tension unfolds and our perfect life starts to unravel.
My compulsions come out to play. Only, our house guest isn’t like my tolerant husband. He doesn’t ask for control. He takes it.
And I surrender to this stranger’s will, because the twisted parts of me have become so rigid I sense my perfect life is about to break, and choosing to break seems the only choice left within my control.

I received this audiobook and exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Well, well, well. Another fantastic and favorite read of 2022! I was by no means expecting to love this book as much as I do. As most of you know, I am incredibly picky when it comes to reading and third person. Typically, I hate it. I don’t usually connect that well to the characters that are in the book if they’re written in third person. However, there are a few specific authors that can write in third person and it doesn’t phase me one bit. Lydia Michaels is now on that list of authors.. I was absolutely astounded from chapter 1 how much I really enjoyed this book. First of all, this book is only narrated by Lance West. Typically with romance books that are either first person point of view or in third person point of you it’s usually narrated by a female so listening to this audiobook immediately felt different but in a really good way. I surprisingly really enjoyed Lance West voicing all three main characters. It just fits so well with this book. Liberty, Mason, and Sean have such a wonderful dynamic. These three are really special. I think everything about this book was absolutely amazing. Writing, story, each and every character and their backstory. There is so much thought and detail put into this book, I certainly appreciated it. Liberty Mason and Sean have such fantastic chemistry. It was so steamy and undeniably hot. This is my first time ever reading a book from this author and it will definitely not be my last! This book will definitely be on my list of favorite reads of 2022 and is also a book I’m gonna have to add to my collection.
