If I had to pick a book that sticks out from my stable like a sore thumb, I’d definitely go with Eve’s Wrath. It’s definitely different from anything I’ve ever written and frankly, I was a little scared going into it. Though I’ve tried writing Romantic Suspense before there’s usually a mystery being solved. In this case I was just going for straight-up revenge which is new to me.
As if that wasn’t hard enough to chew, I set the whole story within a business environment. So many things could have gone wrong and there was always the risk of the story being boring because the romance takes a backseat to the revenge. Thankfully, it all worked out and from the reviews, it seems like most readers liked it. If you haven’t read the book, you should grab your copy. Do that before reading the rest of this post because there will be spoilers.
Okay, now onto the tea.
1: SHARON HAS NO REMORSE
Some people wanted to know why Sharon never repented even after going to jail. She still remained as the bitter, evil monster that Eve speared. Why? Because sometimes that’s just how people are. They do not change. If even almost killing Carter (the person she claimed to love the most) didn’t make her rethink her actions, then going to jail was nothing in the grand scheme of things. She has no conscience and will not be getting one anytime soon.
2: CARTER HAD A BROTHER
You remember him, right? Aaron. I didn’t say much about him in the story other than that he was dead and Jackson was his step-son. Frankly, I wish I could’ve at least shown him before his death. He was a really good guy as evidenced by the fact that he was raising a child who wasn’t biologically his. Also, he wasn’t as blinded to Sharon’s faults as Carter was. I hate that he had to die but if he was alive, Eve’s story would never have happened and maybe Sharon could’ve been stopped before she completely crossed over to the dark side.
3: IT WAS INSPIRED BY K-DRAMA ‘SEARCH WWW’
If you’re into kdramas like I am, then I’m sure you know about Search WWW. It’s the story of three women who work in two competitive web portal companies. What impressed me about the whole series was how badass the women were. Bae Ta-mi, the female lead, was great on her own as was the volatile Scarlet. However, Ga-kyeong, Ta-mi’s former boss provided the most inspiration for Eve’s Wrath. She was a fascinating character. Sometimes she had morals, sometimes she had none. Her relationship with her husband and mother-in-law was quite interesting. I won’t lie, it hurt me when her and her husband’s marriage fell apart and I wanted to fix it with a book. So I did!
4: IT WAS WRITTEN ON WATTPAD
The book first came to life on Wattpad. The reason I like to write on Wattpad is because that’s where I started my career. Also, my followers there are awesome. While they read, there are always insightful and encouraging comments that help to guide the writing of the book. I really believe that those comments improved the overall quality of the book because I could see how certain characters were being received and how Eve and Carter’s actions were being perceived. Will I be writing another book on Wattpad? Definitely. If you’d love to read while I write instead of waiting until the book is published, make sure to follow my Wattpad profile.

5: I’M NOT DONE WITH CARTER & EVE
Not by a long shot. Though their relationship ended on a hopeful note it wasn’t quite what I want for them. After everything these two went through I think they deserve more than a quickie in a hotel room. Even if I don’t write a whole novel for them, expect at least a short story that gives them (and Jackson) an even happier ending.
6: ‘REWRITE THE STARS’ HELPED TO WRITE IT
Have you watched ‘The Greatest Showman’? No? Neither have I 😂. But I love the music that was used in the show. ‘Rewrite the Stars’ by Zac Efron and Zendaya caught my ear because of the lyrics of the song. They matched exactly what I was feeling when writing Carter and Eve’s scenes. Carter was hopeful that their relationship would work while Eve was sure that it wouldn’t. You should try listening to the song sometime. I think you’ll like it.
