In this 50-page digital original novella, Suzanne Young extends the dazzling world of A Need So Beautiful and A Want So Wicked.

Eighteen-year-old Claire Becks leads a charmed life surrounded by her loving family, great friends, and sexy boyfriend, Ezra. Claire is known for her great advice—and for how easily she puts others at ease. And although she feels occasional bouts of sadness she can't quite place, she is otherwise happy.

Then one day a mysterious stranger walks into her family's bakery. Claire immediately senses something about Harlin—something tortured and dark. Even after he leaves, she can't stop thinking about him, inexplicably feeling like there is unfinished business between them.

When Lucy, the new girl in town, starts to draw Claire into her world of darkness, Harlin realizes who Claire really is. But Claire will have to realize it too if she hopes to escape the fate of the Shadows.

Let's be honest, Claire is an awesome character full of compassion and love, but Harlin is the reason I read this. His journey has been just as heartrending and thought provoking as Charlotte and Elise's were in the first two books and I was excited to see where his role as a Seer would take him next. As always, Suzanne Young gives us a creative, well-written story with smart, witty characters facing gut-wrenching choices a delicious romance that will not soon be forgotten.

One of the many things I love about Harlin (and sweet mini cupcakes there are so.very.many.things) is that he is a great example of what it means to love someone, really love them. Yes, outward appearance matters but it's what's inside that is most important. I wanted--no, NEEDED his story to have closure and this is ending is perfection.
