From GoodReads:
Zara White suspects there’s a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She’s also obsessed with phobias. And it’s true, she hasn’t exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane…but Zara’s pretty sure her mom just can’t deal with her right now.

She couldn’t be more wrong. Turns out the semi-stalker is not a figment of Zara’s overactive imagination. In fact, he’s still following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There’s something not right – not human – in this sleepy Maine town, and all signs point to Zara.

In this creepy, compelling breakout novel, Carrie Jones delivers romance, suspense, and a creature you never thought you’d have to fear.


My Review:
Need was a different take on the paranormal than what I’ve read before. While it did have weres, I don’t know that I’ve read a book specifically with pixies before. Blood-sucking pixies. Definitely different, and interesting.

So many secrets are revealed in this book. One after another, I was kept constantly guessing. The love interest, however, was obvious, but I’m happy with the way it ended up, even though I could have done with a little less of them mesmerized by each other.

I’ll definitely be reading Captivate soon. I’m interested in seeing where the story goes after this. Fans of the paranormal genre should definitely add this to their plan to read shelves!

    I’m glad you liked it as much as I did! Captivate was good as well. I agree with you on how different this book was. I never thought of Pixies and Weres in the same picture before. It made things more interesting I think. Thanks for the review!
