North of Need (Hearts of the Anemoi Book 1)
By Laura Kaye
My review: 3 of 5 stars
North of Need reads like an R-Rated Hallmark movie. It does offer something different in the form of Gods of the Seasons giving it a unique mythological twist. But, the author seemed to play fast and loose with that mythology, creating her own rules. She even brings in the subject of climate change. The story was playful and a quick, enjoyable read even though it was a bit sappy and corny. Not great, but not bad. If you’re looking for a different kind of romance, this may fit the bill.
“You know you’re going stir crazy when shoveling backbreaking wet snow counts as entertainment” (p. 2).
“Sometimes the label of ‘widow’ weighed a thousand pounds with all the things you felt you shouldn’t do” (p. 58).
