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 Thoughts
Need was a book I devoured. I knew from the very first page that I would love it. The whole story line and everything was absolutely up to scratch.

I love Zara. I love her name. It's quite cliche how she moves to a new school and all but that didn't matter at all. The events that followed and the action that had occurred was indeed mind blowing.

Nick is just awesome. I love his personality and character. He's just really great! I just knew whilst reading about him that he would be the one and also his transformation in front of Zara and the moment and everything was so cute!

One thing that I absolutely loved was how Jones included phobias that Zara suffered from. I loved reading each and every one! It was great to learn more and understand more about Zara's character.

Jones created a world of suspense and drama as it kept me engaged and wanting to read more and more. It is a entertaining and quick read. I have to read more, and so I await for Captivate!

  8. Its so interesting to see the different perspectives of the same book. This was one that I absolutely did not like, yet I can understand how so many others, such as yourself, loved it. This is the great thing about blogging books, people get to hear so many different viewpoints.

  15. Loved this book! Was AMAZING! Can't wait to finish the series and read more from Carrie Jones!


  16. This author is amazing, loved the book and loved the main character

  17. This was not what I was expecting I must not have read the synopsis very well before I bought this book. I probably wouldnt have picked it up if I had know that it was about evil Pixies. I love supernatural books but Pixies just don't sound scary. I also ran into this problem when I read Rampant which is about venomous unicorns that kill really that's what its about lol. Anyways, the moral of this story it that this book was good. I have learned to give some of these crazy plots a chance and so far I have been pleasantly surprised.
