Cover Crush: Compulsion by Martina Boone
When you open up Goodreads and see that the first two reviews on a book are 5 star and by two of your favorite authors (Jennifer Armentrout and Wendy Higgins) you sit up and take notice. Beyond the book love, it was this luscious cover that really had me take notice of Compulsion. The golden hue so reminds me of fall and that sexy pose right in the middle of the book? Yes please! But don’t be lured in by this captivating cover alone, read on for all the details on this magical debut and better yet pick up a copy when it releases on October, 28th.
All her life, Barrie Watson has been a virtual prisoner in the house where she lives with her shut-in mother. When her mother dies, Barrie promises to put some mileage on her stiletto heels. But she finds a new kind of prison at her aunt’s South Carolina plantation instead–a prison guarded by an ancient spirit who long ago cursed one of the three founding families of Watson Island and gave the others magical gifts that became compulsions.
Stuck with the ghosts of a generations-old feud and hunted by forces she cannot see, Barrie must find a way to break free of the family legacy. With the help of sun-kissed Eight Beaufort, who knows what Barrie wants before she knows herself, the last Watson heir starts to unravel her family’s twisted secrets. What she finds is dangerous: a love she never expected, a river that turns to fire at midnight, a gorgeous cousin who isn’t what she seems, and very real enemies who want both Eight and Barrie dead.
