Five Characters I Love to Hate

[Possible spoilers]

Last time, I wrote Five Characters I Love. This time, I will change it up and tell you the Characters I Love to Hate.

Before I get into my list, I thought I would give you an insight on why I picked them. I have a hard time with people who manipulate children into thinking they’re in control when in reality, they’re just doing what the person wants them to do. Nothing seems to get my dander up more than people taking advantage of the vulnerable.

So keeping that in mind, let’s get on with the blog.

Endless Change – Dakota

I loathe this woman because of the way she controls Parker. She leads him into a sense of the false security; Parker has no idea he is about to get his life turned upside down. She tugs and tugs until she pulls him in. You will despise her by the end of the book. I have a hard time finding even one trait in her that I admire.


By-Pass, Breaking the Pattern #3 – Katya

Another quality I loathe is child abandonment. There is nothing I hate than a mother who is too busy with her own life to show some compassion to her child.

Meet Katya. The only thing she cares for is herself. And keeping her daughter Xenia under her control. She has her own idea of how her children should behave, and if they step out of that little world, she squashes them like a bug. You continue to worry about Xenia’s welfare because Katya sure doesn’t. Reading this book makes me very grateful for the mother I have!

Deviation, Breaking the Pattern #1 – Henry

I almost get mad at Pamela herself for this character. Henry is a real piece of work as he cares for Bobby, yet has no compassion for his victims. He puts you through the wringer worrying about Sandy’s welfare. Can you imagine having someone like Henry close to you? How safe are you with this kind of person in the world?


Proxy Medical Kidnap files #3 – Leva

The mother from heck. Leva’s son Seth is constantly in the hospital. I mean — 48 times! It makes you really feel sorry for Leva. What is wrong with 14-year-old Seth? There is no way that she could be the reason he has been there 48 times. Can someone really be that sick? I could not put this book down.


Making Her Mark – Preston

Preston rejects her baby simply because it is not perfect. How could anyone do that to their own child? What exactly goes through a person’s mind in making such a despicable moral choice? This is the kind of person who needs to be stopped! A heart-warming book that will pull you in and never let you go.
