A Want So Wicked by Suzanne Young

Genre:  YA Urban Fantasy
A Need So Beautiful Series, Book 2

Description (taken from Suzanne Young's website)
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?

The title is absolutely perfect for this book.  And like the first book, this one has such a bittersweet ending.  Beautiful!

The first book is from Charlotte's point of view while this one is from Elise's point of view.  But we're still going to see the same kind of storyline that we saw in the first book.  It's a light versus darkness kind of thing without seeming standoffish.  And there's some heavy romance.  My only drawback is that the book is too short, and I wish I could see more of the storyline from the various characters in the story.

Who do I recommend this book to?  Anyone who loved the first one, A Need So Beautiful.  And I'd tell anyone who loves romance and bittersweet things and has five hours to spare to pick the first one up and read it.
