Elise is a normal seventeen-year-old girl until the day she wakes up in a desert park, with no idea who she is.*A copy was provided by publisher for honest review*
After that episode, her life takes a bizarre turn. She’s experiencing unexpected flashes of insight into people’s lives—people she’s never met before. Strangers frighten her with warnings about the approaching Shadows. And although Elise has never had a boyfriend, she suddenly finds herself torn between two handsome but very different young men: Abe, the charming bad boy whose effect on her both seduces and frightens her, and the mysterious Harlin, who’s new to town but with whom Elise feels an urgent, elemental connection—almost as if they are soul mates.
Now Elise begins to question everything about her life. Why do these guys both want her so desperately? What are the Shadows? Why does the name Charlotte inspire a terrifying familiarity? And who is Elise, really?
Oh how I've been waiting for this one. If you haven't read A Need So Beautiful go grab it real quick like and get to it...at least you won't have to wait a billion days for the sequel to come out like I did.
A Want So Wicked picks up where Charlotte ended in A Need So Beautiful. Elise wakes up and in her reflection she swears she sees someone else. She starts having weird feelings, seeing things, and gets attacked by an old crazy woman. It has been forever, it seems, since I read A Need So Beautiful so I was glad that Suzanne threw in some things from it to kick start the memories and get the "oh yeah...." going again.
I love the plot line more in A Want so Wicked than I did in the first book, this is one hell of a sequel! The characters bring so much raw emotion that you even feel for the bad guys. When we are introduced to Abe I thought there might be an insta-something to happen but it didnt go in that direction, and for that, Suzanne I thank you!
The suspense kept me turning the pages to see what was going to happen, how things would turn out this time around. I loved that the questions I had about how this could even be possible were answered without me being left in the dark or left with questions about certain things.
I loved seeing the relationship between Elise and Harlin form and grow. The love that they have for one another is something else altogether, something that everyone wants to have. Even though it sometimes brings them pain they both know what lies ahead. I really hope that they announce that there will be a third book because I would love to have more.
If you are looking on a new take on things from the angel aspect of reading definitely pick these two up, you won't be disappointed.
