Making Up For Monday: Sucker Punch

What character in a book would you like to sucker punch in the face? 

I am not a violent person nor do I condone violence, but for the sake of this question let’s put that aside and I’ll share who I’d fictionally love to sucker punch in the face.

Wait…that would really be a lot, because so often there’s a character who wants to wreak havoc and cause the downfall of those couples I want to be together. I’ll share the three that came to mind first.

Christa Peterson from the Gabriel’s Inferno series by Sylvain Reynard is just a truly awful, despicable woman. She’s selfish, manipulative, and she’ll use anybody in any way she can think of to get what she wants. This is definitely someone who caused me endless teeth grinding, fist clenching moments whenever she was in a scene.

Elena Lincoln from the Fifty Shades series by E.L. James is another vile character that really deserved bad, bad things for all of her transgressions. I remember thinking many times while reading or rereading that I really, really wanted Ana to bitch slap her senseless. UGH! She evokes nothing but nasty emotions for me.

Laoghhaire MacKenzie from the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon was only mildly irritating to me in the first book, but as the series progresses so does my intense dislike of her. In fact, dislike is really too gentle a term for how I felt about her after book 3. I out and out hated her then.

What about you? Who are the characters you despise enough that you’d sucker punch them if you could?

    Charisma Warner in My Skylar – horrid, hurtful bitch. Mitch and Skylar had gone through so much pain and suffering and she almost destroyed them. And Sienna Sexton in Reckless by SC Stephens, the way she tries to get claws into Kellan and cause a rift between him and Kiera. I wanted to punch her lights out.

    Tawny from the Driven Triology, I wanted to reach into my kindle and slap her a number of times. She is a horrible person and wanted to make thimes hard for Rylee and Colton at every turn, thinking that he would always come back to her. Not bitch, he learned the truth.


  3. Ooooh this is a good one! I definitely pick Rochelle from Precise, by Rebecca Berto. She was a wretched excuse for a mother/grandmother.

    Christa Peterson was my first thought as well….followed by Simon and Natalie!
