Series: A Need So Beautiful #1
Release Date: June 21, 2011
Format: Hardcover - Signed
A Need So Beautiful was just, well, beautiful. The writing had such an easy flow that I finished it in one night. *CAUTION* Do not read while you're in the sun without sunscreen! This is a lesson learned.
This was different from my most recent paranormal reads. There was only a light touch to a darker feel to this book. The concept of the Forgotten had to be my favorite part. They are those who do random good deeds that change peoples lives. After each time, they lose a piece of their skin leaving behind a beautiful gold patch underneath. The whole story had this touch of lightness to it that made it very easy to read.
I've admitted this before that I'm a swooner. I LOVE the character Harlin. He's not just some guy, but someone who cares deeply about Charlotte. They understand each other and work through everything like a strong relationship instead of a high school relationship. Charlotte and Harlin go through so much that I'm just waiting for one of them to open up. They respect each other's problems and are just one of the most perfect couples. Charlotte was written in a way that I became emotionally attached to her. She's this strong heroine that you'll just have to love.
Following Charlotte through this struggle to stay with Harlin was quite a plot. The ending just killed me and now I'm not even sure where it will go. Now I'm waiting "patiently" for A Want So Wicked, which will be the sequel.
Go get this book because it's super original. Also get this book because the cover is gorgeous!
