Summary:

One couple questioning their commitments. Another couple coloring outside the boundaries of sexuality in an open relationship.

Jennifer and Ryan Lambert have reached the very edge of their marital contentment, wondering if this is just what modern marriage looks like. When they meet the Shepards, they find Bruce and Paige so very sophisticated, witty...sexy. The Shepards don't seem to have any of the boredom that has creeped into their own marriage. They're at ease, they're funny, they're...flirty?

Everything makes more sense when Jennifer and Ryan find out the truth about Bruce and Paige. The Shepards are swingers, and the Lamberts want in.

The next several months of their lives will be a wild ride through the intense hedonistic world of the swinging lifestyle. Can Ryan and Jennifer's marriage survive living A Life Less Monogamous, an erotic journey of orgies, swingers parties, miscommunication, surprise attraction, and exploring sexuality.

    If ever there was a work meant to be an audiobook, this is it. The dual narration added to what is a very compelling story, filled with a wide range of emotions and themes. Ranging from funny, sad, provocative, overtly and covertly cautionary, this book gives what feels like a very real glimpse into what it would be like to enter the world of swinging. The characters feel both real and larger than life, expanding the narrative into almost an allegory, yet staying within the realms of total reliability. An excellent listen!
