From the Back Cover
Elise is a normal seventeen-year-old girl until the day she wakes up in a desert park with no idea who she is.
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?

I fell in love with Suzanne Young's writing in A Need So Beautiful.
A Want So Wicked was amazing.. One thing is for sure. Young knows just how to create a beautifully, wicked story that also has hot swoon worthy guys!
So when I received A Want So Wicked in the mail from Suzanne herself, I was so very honored to read this book, find out what had come of A Need So Beautiful. I have to say that I am still left wanting more. So much more...I am hoping and wishing that there is a book 3 to complete this amazing series.
In A Want So Wicked we meet Elise Landon. Who lives with her sister, Lucy, who is the "wild child" always doing what she can to rebel, against her father. But there is something about Lucy that changes, her mood shifts, and she becomes way more rebellious! What is Lucy hiding? Their father is a pastor at the local church, and he is overbearing at times, but after he lost his wife, he just cannot fathom loosing his daughters as well.
They just moved to Thistle, Arizona from Colorado, and everything is just way different. They literally live in the land of nowhere, and this place includes tumbleweeds. Seriously.
Elise is really the calm one. Always tries to do the right thing. But lately there is something about Elise that is different. These dreams she has that feel so real, like she is actually living them, even though she doesn't know who or what she is dreaming about.Read more ›
A Want So Wicked was a fantastic follow up to A Need So Beautiful. Like its predecessor, I couldn't put it down and I started and finished it in one day. (I may have stayed up pretty late that night.) I didn't think I could get as attached to someone that wasn't Charlotte, but Elise, while different, was just as engaging. Her circumstances were different, of course, but the way that she is written will draw you in. What to say about Harlin? He is the same, but a little more damaged and still recovering from his loss several months earlier. However, he is as kind and appealing as he was before, and it was so great to have him back for this book. I think one of the most appealing things about this story was the fact that we met new people, but still felt like our friends from book one were with us. Suzanne Young has written a sequel that is emotional, adventurous and highly entertaining. Don't start this book too late at night because you will want to stay up way past your bedtime just to finish it!
