‘Waiting On’ Wednesday (13) WHAT IF EDITION: A Desire So Deadly (A Need So Beautiful #3) by Suzanne Young

July 11, 2012 A Desire So Deadly, A Need So Beautiful, A Want So Wicked, Balzer + Bray, HarperCollins, Suzanne Young, Waiting on Wednesday, What IF Edition 40

**Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.**

For this week’s WOW post I am doing something very different. This ‘Waiting On’ is for a book that is NOT currently being published but I WANT it to be! I am hoping and praying that the ‘powers that be’ will someday let it be so!

A Desire So Deadly (A Need So Beautiful #3) by Suzanne Young

Anticipated Publication Date: Someday in the Future

For those of you who may not know, the A Need So Beautiful series currently has 2 published books. Unfortunately, as of right now, this is all the publisher has picked up for the series. *cries*

So why, may you ask, is this picture here acting as a pretend cover for a book that does not exist? Well, Suzanne once told me she made a fake red cover for Harlin and the book she would love to write.

And no, your eyes are not deceiving you. That is Caleb Followill from the Kings of Leon. In a twitter chat with Suzanne on July 9th, hosted by Novel Novice and Epic Reads, she tweeted this picture and said she used this as an inspiration for Harlin. As a HUGE Kings of Leon fan AND A Need So Beautiful fan, this delighted me to no end.

What you may have missed from the chat is that there are many fans of this series who are hoping that one day this next book can be so. Jen @ Jenuine Cupcakes even suggested during the chat that we become Harlin’s Street Team! (I fully support this!) Suzanne has not only expressed interest on twitter, but also in an interview with Loretta @ Between the Pages where she states, “I would love a third book. It would be called A DESIRE SO DEADLY and it would be focused on Seers.” (Go read the rest of the interview. It is FAB!) Guys, Harlin is a seer! This means we would get LOTS of Harlin! She also told me there would be alot of kissing! More Harlin and more kissing. YES PLEASE!

But it isn’t just Harlin and the hopes for a lot of kissing that make me NEED another book. Even though A Want So Wicked ends in a good way, I feel like there is so much more to explore with the Forgotten, Shadows and Seers. I WANT to know more. I DESIRE more. (okay, sorry if that was cheesy. hehe) But in all seriousness, I feel like a deeper look into the Seers’ way of life will be heartbreakingly beautiful, with the potential to surpass the other books.

If anyone reading this post has not read this series yet, I implore you to go out and get a copy of both books! A Need So Beautiful was such a powerful and emotional read and the sequel, A Want So Wicked, was darker with the same emotions running high. The writing is beautiful with powerful endings that took my breath away. It is a very interesting take on angels and has easily become some of my favorite books. Oh, did I mention Harlin rides a motorcycle? *grins*

If you are a fan of the first book and have not had a chance to pick up the sequel, I truly hope you will give it a go and help spread the love and word of mouth of this series. You will want this book to happen!

So the moral of this… post, is that I will continue to ‘Wait On’ this novel until the publisher, *waves at Balzer and Bray and Harper Collins* hears my pleas and decides to green light this book. If anyone has any additional ideas to help promote this, I would love to hear them!

“I’ve missed you so much,” I whisper as he kisses my neck. “Even when I didn’t know you, my soul still missed you.”

By the way, have you guys read the super amazing Harlin POV Scene that Suzanne wrote over at A Good Addiction? (Will be spoilerish if you have not read A Need So Beautiful)

    HARLIN’S STREET TEAM FTW!! (We need a blog button for that – which I have no idea how to do – ha!) This is a GREAT post! Thanks for the shout-out too. 😉

  2. Netra21

    How can you say no to more Harlin?! Give me a button, a shirt,flyers or whatever, Harlin’s Street team has recruited me. Great post!

    Thanks for stopping by my WOW. This is a great WOW, more of us should do this for those books that have yet to be published that might never be.

    I have about 3 authors I wished the publisher would get this rheas out of the dirt and signed them for the next books.

  4. Nikki H

    Great WOW! I really like the concept of this What if… There’s a whole heap of books I could do for a WoW like this!

  5. Linny

    I haven’t read either of the books in this series yet, but I’ve been meaning to. That sucks that there isn’t a thrid book planned! 🙁 I hope it all works out and that she gets to write the thrid book. It always sucks BIG time when the publishers up and decide to stop running a series…

  6. Sam

    Ha I love this! I haven’t even read the first two books yet, but the fact that you want a third one tells me they’re good. 😉

  7. Ashley @ Book Labyrinth

    I definitely need to read the first book… I’ve actually been meaning to since the first book came out and everyone was talking about how good they were. Must get from the library as soon as I’ve read a few more review books.

  8. Kendra

    What a great idea for a WoW post. I hate it when I really love a series, and they stop after two books. So frustrating. I haven’t read the first two, but I might just have to check them out. I hope this book is published.

  9. Stephanie

    HOW IN THE WORLD OF THE STANDARD WRITING CONTRACT THAT COMES TO YA TRILOGIES IS THERE NO THIRD BOOK IN THIS SERIES??? I feel bad for her- it must be so disappointing to WANT to do another book and being told you CANT. Lets start a petition.

  10. Jessirae

    Aww! That makes me sad that there is no third book (yet)! I haven’t read A Need So Beautiful, but I was hoping to in the future. lol. I hope that third book comes out for all those die-hard fans, like you 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by!

    I’m in!!! Harlin is definitely one of my top “swoon-worthy” characters. BTW, that is so awesome you had that chat with her. She really seems like good people. Plus she loves Kings of Leon 🙂

  12. Annabelle Marie Veronica

    Okay, you have me! A Harlin street team? Hello, I’m so in! I love this series, and a third book would be like the best thing in the universe! And Caleb…mmm…

    Thanks for stopping by, and linking me up! One of my favorite WoWs ever 🙂

  13. Sel

    Most unique WoW that I’ve ever seen 😉

    Sorry for being confused here, but I’ve never read the A Need So Beautiful series *bows head in shame* Why didn’t the publishers sign for the publication of the third book? :O

    Continue your rally with passion! Maybe ask all the fans of the series to do a WoW post on this 🙂 I’m sure you’ll get to see the third book hit the shelves one day!

    Best of luck, dearie!
