"North of Need" [Hearts of the Anemoi Series, Book One] by Laura Kaye

My Book Summary : It's been two years since Megan's husband passed away, and she is still grieving for him along with dealing with the guilt she holds involving his death. This year Megan decides to stay at her cabin (that has always meant a lot to her husband and her) during the anniversary of his death (which happened on Christmas), thinking spending it there will give her some of the tranquility she lost since his death. However, tranquility is the last thing she gets, especially after building a snowman family in front of the cabin, everything that she went through bottles up, spills out, and she has a breakdown outside on her snowman.

Owen is a God of Winter who comes to earth to help Megan, which he does in flying colors. From their snow antics, to their igloo picnics, to their happy chatter with each other and more, Megan is the happiest she’s been in the past two years. Nevertheless, even with everything going so well for them, their time together is cut short when the snow starts to melt. Now Owen just has a few days left to prove to Megan that they need each other and that they are good together, before there is no snow left, because if Megan can't give her heart to Owen before the snow melts, then he won't be able to stay with her. However, is Megan willing to face her fears and give her heart to Owen before it's too late?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! After just reading a few chapters of North of Need it reminded me of the movie Jack Frost, even though this book has a different story line, I think it was the whole snowman-coming-to-life thing that made me think it. Anyway ...

This is a wonderful book!! Also, I say that while admitting that at first glance I was a bit skeptical of it but I am sooo happy that I choose to read it!! It's endearing, sizzling, and a fun novel! Not long after starting this book you get wrapped up in Megan's past and then even more so with Owen's happiness about everything!

There is only a few chapters about 3/4's of the way in when I wanted to smack Megan upside the head for how she acted. However, I did like the way the author took the storyline from that part and made the book even more interesting!!

I wonder if all the gods in this series will be as captivating?? Well, keep a lookout for West of Want in March 2012 and we'll both find out! =0)

Book Teaser(s) :
She smiled. "Well, come on."
He frowned, winced.
"You're going to join me, aren't you?"
He knelt down next to the tub and rested his arms on the edge. "I can't."
She scooted closer, the water carrying her weight to where he was. "Why?" Then it hit her. "It's too warm for you."
He nodded. "Yes, for now. It's cold showers for me." He winked. ~ within Chapter 14
