Compulsion by Clare London



The past always catches up with you. Max Newman should know—he’s been running from his ever since he dropped out of Uni and made a disastrous move to the seedier side of London. Now he’s returned to Brighton to lick his wounds. Though Max believes the club scene is better left behind him, one night he lets his friends drag him out dancing. And suddenly the simple life he’s tried to lead gets complicated.

At Compulsion, the Medina Group’s newest hotspot, Max meets Seve Nunez, a member of the Medina management and a man used to taking what he wants. The sexual chemistry between Max and Seve immediately leads to an intimate encounter in the backyard of the club—just the kind of dangerous behavior Max tried to leave behind. Despite that, he can’t help but crave more, and Seve seems just as eager.

But Max soon suspects that Seve may not be the scrupulous businessman he claims. Max has seen the Medina Group at work before, and what he saw got a good friend killed. He’s not sure what future he has with Seve, but he’ll have to decide whether to trust in Seve’s innocence or keep running. The wrong choice could land them both in mortal danger.

My Review: 

Ugh so where do I start. This book had the makings to be a 5 or a 10 star with me. It had all the makings that I love in a book.




Bad boys

Male on Male hotness

But it just….fell short…. I don’t know.

It was fast paced…. and then really slow…. then fast… then slow….

SometimeI wanted to just do a DNF. I will give it to the author though, she made me want to see this book right to the very end. I wanted to know if Seve was shady, if he lied.

I’m all for public sex. The thrill, yup love it, the drive of anything illicit makes the juices flow but these 2 took that BEYOND. I should have been horny, I should have been…..but…. I wasn’t.

I don’t know. I didn’t feel a connection between the 2 MC’s AT ALL. And I’m all about connection. I need to feel exactly what they feel in those moments and I didn’t.

It’s obviously me. That happens sometimes.


2.5 stars

But the cover………MMMMMMM….. I could stare at it for hours 😉
