Charlotte isn't Charlotte any more. She has a new life as Elise and doesn't remember anything of her other life. But, in this new life, she still can read what people need, and can't help but encourage them to do what's right. However, she's convinced she's going crazy.
The first "love interest" in this book is Abe. He's such a perfect catch. He seems to know exactly what Elise is thinking, and caters to her every wish. Or, is he making her wish for things? There's more to Abe than meets the eye...
Then, there's Harlin. As soon as Elise lays eyes on him, she's attracted to him. And this attraction doesn't make Abe happy.
There's an interesting character, Marceline, that helps Charlotte make sense of things. It turns out Charlotte is pretty special, even in this paranormal world.
I thought A Want So Wicked was darker than A Need So Beautiful, and I liked it. The sinister characters were even more evil. The climactic ending really had my heart pounding. And, I'm left wanting more -- Young does leave that door open, so yeah!
Young does a great job of reminding you what happened in A Need So Beautiful without a big recap or information dump. And I needed it. As I read those subtle reminders, it didn't take long for it all to come back. Remember Monroe? I really didn't -- but he's back in this one too.
If you enjoyed A Need So Beautiful, you will certainly want to read A Want So Wicked. And I recommend them both, if you haven't started this series yet.
