While attempting to escape the agonizing memories she associates with Christmas, twenty-nine-year-old widow Megan Snow builds a snow family outside the mountain cabin she once shared with her husband-and collapses in tears against the snowman at the sight of what she’ll never have.
Called to life by the power of Megan’s tears, snow god Owen Winters appears unconscious on her doorstep in the midst of a raging blizzard. As she nurses him to health, Owen finds unexpected solace in her company and unimagined pleasure in the warmth of her body, and vows to win her heart for a chance at humanity.

Megan is drawn to Owen’s mismatched eyes, otherworldly masculinity, and enthusiasm for the littlest things, and her heart opens enough to believe he’s a Christmas miracle. But this miracle comes with an expiration-before the snow melts and the temperature rises, Megan must let go of her widow’s grief and learn to trust love again, or she’ll lose Owen forever.

It’s the second anniversary of her late husbands death. Megan is still grieving over the lost and that took place one Christmas evening two years ago. Owen’s been sent down from the Gods to answer a plea from her late husband. He has until the snow melts (4 days) to get her to fall in love with him, otherwise he will melt like the snow.

This was a sweet fairytale romance but it was way to instant for me. Considering that Megan has 4 days to get over her late husband, move on and fall in love with a complete stranger in the limited amount of time was too much for me. I believe in insta-attraction but not insta-love.

Regardless, I still found the story to be entertaining. I’m a fan of the authors writing style. She doesn’t bore the readers with a lot of inner dialogue and she keeps the story moving at a steady pace. Which for me, is what helped me enjoy the story and get over the 4 day progression.

“I’m man enough to admit that. I  like seeing you healthy and sated, and I like to have a hand in making you that way.” -Owen

2 Thoughts on “Review: North of Need by Laura Kaye

  1. Aw I loved this one. And yeah the 4 days thing was one that I had to just put out of my head. Other than that it was one of my faves. Probably because of Owen. I loved his junk food addiction and the whole ice cream for breakfast thing. LOL

  2. Great review, I love the sound of this series and it sounds like her writing style would be something I’d enjoy!
