    Description

    Lipstick. Bright, red lipstick. Nothing but lipstick.

    Even though it's against our faith to wear a color that screams of sexual promiscuity and deviant behavior, I'm not allowed to protest.

    But, I want to.

    So badly.

    You see, there's more to me than the braid that spills down my back.

    More to me than the layers of heavy fabric that maintain my modesty.

    And so much more than the oppressive wedding band that adorns my finger - the same band that each of my sister wives wear.

    So much more.

    To protest would be sinful.

    I must keep sweet, that is my duty.

    So I'll wear the lipstick. I'll do as I'm told.

    And I'll do my best to silence the resistance within me, to push him from my mind.

    If only my heart would do the same.

    Too much sexual content for my liking

    Brinley is ordered by the prophet to marry an older FLDS man while still a teen. She is wife number 7 and has no idea when she marries what awaits her in the marriage bed. Brinley thought all she ever had to so is kiss a man. She didn't like her assigned husband and didn't want to have his babies which is definitely expected of her. One day her purse gets snatched by a guy she recognizes as Porter, an ex FLDS. She goes and confronts him to get her purse back as it contains two very important, hidden items.

    This story is about Brinley, her relationships with some of the other wives. Brinley dispising her husband, her lust for another man, her hiding secrets from the entire family and her trying to decide if staying in the FLDS is right for her.

    This book has a lot of sexual scenes which go into detail. I didn't expect this in a book about any Mormon wives, especially the FLDS! Plus, I would very highly doubt any Mormon or FLDS woman would actually have a sexual affair while married. I live in a highly Mormon area and all the Mormons I know would certainly be too scared of losing their Celestial Kingdom or getting in trouble with the prophet, therefore NO adultery would be happening.

    The narrator was excellent. I felt sorry for her having to read the sex scenes. As a Christian, I would not recommend this book due to the high sexual content.

    A beautiful story, brought to life.

    This is crazy accurate with the details of polygamy life. I have always been intrigued by the Colorado City polygamists and this gave me a unique and beautiful story about following your heart despite the pressures of doing what you are supposed to.

    Bridget Haight was so perfect for this book. She had that innocent tone to her voice that made you adore the character even more.

    I hope to see the rest of The Compound Series on Audible soon!

    Love the audio!!

    I loved this book when I read it the first time around. I decided to listen as a reread before reading mother before wife, book two in the series. It's been almost a week, as I haven't had much listening time, but I'm so glad that I decided to see it through. I love remembering all of the things that I had forgotten about the compound. And Brinley and Porter. I think I'm even going to read the little nocella again before continuing on to mother before wife. Just for another refresher….
    Love everything about this series!!

    Just WOW!

    Was not expecting this from this story!
    First- stories about polygamy usually aren't my thing, but this entire story was just awesome.
    It dug really deep into polygamy, which is not what i was expecting.
    the narrator bought the story completely to life, she was perfect!
    Very well written, and very well narrated.
    I do wish the entire series was on audible though, but the story captivated me so much, that i read the ones that are not!

    Pleasantly surprised

    I didnt know what to expect but i always find polygamy novels interesting. The drug addiction aspect really added a different spin to the otdinary romance. Gonna continue the series:))

    Something Very Different but Beautiful

    This was a hard story to read and don't get me wrong, I LOVE my dark gritty, taboo reads; however, this one really delves deep into the world of polygamy. There are just so many feelings that come along with this story that I still need to process it. If you wish to hear my final thoughts check out the weekly wrap up (May 27 - Jun 2) on my YouTube Channel.

    This specific video review will be included in the May 2018 wrap-up.
