There are three of them. Three boys. We’re friends, neighbors, our lives linked through disaster, fear and pain.
I love them all. Not sure I can live without them.
Can we just stay friends? Can we ignore the desire flaring when we’re around each other?
Can I kiss one and not the other?
I can’t choose. Don’t want to choose.
And I’m not sure they can, either.
This story will either end up in heartache, or as any story should: in a happy ending.

I liked it, well parts of it and didn't like it.
I am so on the fence with this book.
Three best friends, living in the same apartment block, Sydney, West, and Nate. Three teenagers who are from messed up homes. One has been abandoned and struggling to pay bills, one abused mentally and has OCD and one who is being deceived and abused in other ways.
Three teenagers in very messed up situations and the only thing that gives them sanity is their friendship with one another.
Then along comes Kash who becomes a tenant at Nate's home making the threesome friendship a four. Kash is running away from something and passing off as a 20-year-old when he is really much younger.
Three close friends but neither of them share they are struggling, what their secrets are and neither opens up to what is happening with each of them or what is happening once they are home behind closed doors, it's all cryptic.
The whole first part of this book gave me a headache, it was so cryptic it drove me mad and I nearly gave up more than once but struggled on.
Broken Compass is told in like in three parts, the first part is the friendships along with home and school life and the constant cryptic clues as to what each of them may be hiding. Second, the leaving home part and the drama's leading up to that and then lastly the development from friendship to more with all 4 of them and the sex scenes.
I have struggled with this and had to ponder on this plot.
This is my conclusion:
In previous books by this author you may have a male who is struggling with issues, he's broody, closed off and has obvious issues that others can see but they leave him to himself and support him however they can without knowing his problems or secrets that he clearly doesn't want to share and then the heroine comes along and slowly he begins and starts to open up, share parts of himself and this leads up to the relationship and the heroine helping him.
The author had to do this with 4 characters and near the end pull it all together so, in theory, it was 4 young person's struggles and their story's in one book.
I found this too much. It could have been broken down. It could have been done differently.
I enjoyed the end, it flowed better and I thought finally! and it was very hot but I still couldn't get over the fact these were teenagers in a foursome sex relationship?
I'm skeptical over this book, I didn't enjoy it and so it will have to be one of those books were other readers reach their own conclusions, but this is mine.
