West of Want

Hearts of the Anemoi, #2

West of Want is the second book in Laura Kaye's addictive Hearts of Anemoi series. The two main characters Ella and Zeph were so down to earth that it was impossible not to like them. The fact that Owen from North of Need played a minor role in the events that took place in West of Want was an added bonus. I loved how despite every betrayal Ella and Zeph suffered they still managed to find their way back to each other. The character of Eurus brought tons of conflict to the overall story and kept me guessing as to what he would do next. The pace of West of Want was absolutely perfect and incredibly easy to follow.

Book Blurb for West of Want

Betrayal is all he's ever known, but in her, he'll find a love strong enough to be trusted...

When Marcella Raines' twin brother dies, she honors his request to be buried at sea, never expecting the violent storm that swamps her boat. Though she's gravely injured--and still emotionally damaged from her recent divorce--Ella fights to survive.

Zephyros Martius is the Supreme God of the West Wind and Spring, but being the strongest Anemoi hasn't protected him from betrayal and loss. Worse, he's sure his brother Eurus is behind it. When Zeph's heartbreak whips up a storm that shipwrecks a human, his guilt forces him to save her.

Ella is drawn to the vulnerability Zeph hides beneath his otherworldly masculinity and ancient blue eyes. And her honesty, empathy, and unique, calming influence leave Zeph wanting...everything. When Eurus threatens Ella, she and Zeph struggle to let go of the past, defend their future, and embrace what they most want--a love that can be trusted.
