Finally, it’s done. The book that took six long months to write. PLEASURE has finally been published. This is the fourth book in my ‘HEIRS’ series. To be honest when I planned it out, I expected it to be a fun, easy book. If you’ve read the other three books in the series, then you know that Logan is the fun guy in the group, the party animal. I was going to keep him that way, then Scottie walked in with her baggage. Things got serious real fast.
Despite how long it took to write it, I actually enjoyed the process especially because I was posting on Wattpad and getting your feedback as I went. If you haven’t read it, you should Grab Your Copy. Do that before you read the rest of this post because there will be major spoilers.
Okay, let’s get to it.
1: WHY DID IT TAKE SO LONG TO WRITE
You noticed, right? I started this book way, way back in January immediately after the holidays and only just finished it. No, there were no other projects in between, just life stuff. I’m telling you guys, this COVID-19 ish will play games with your mind. Add in a few relationship problems and you can say goodbye to your productivity. I’m actually shocked that the book is over given all the nonsense that was being thrown my way. Speaking of which; I hope you’re well wherever you are. Don’t forget to wear your mask and socially distance.
2: THIS IS ACTUALLY A REMAKE OF A PREVIOUS BOOK
If you’ve been with me for a while, I think you’ll remember my Trey Songz phase. That was back in 2013 when I was still an innocent college kid with crushes. I didn’t do much fan-fiction back then, but when I did it was his. There’s a short book I wrote back then called ‘Hurting Kind of Love’ that featured a girl who’d been raped then ditched by her boyfriend. This book was a remake of that story and I quite prefer it because the way I dealt with the assault back then was kind of childish. If you read the book, then you know what I mean.
3: I WAS GOING TO KEEP JACK ALIVE BUT MY INNER DEMON KILLED HIM
Jack! Jack! Jack. You met Vinny, the first deviant who scarred Scottie. Jack was just mentioned in passing as having died in a car crash. I was going to keep him alive and make him repent, but the thought of him and Scottie existing in the same space just annoyed the hell out of me. So I killed him. #SorryNotSorry.
4: LOGAN, LEX & THEIR MOTHER HAVE A COMPLICATED RELATIONSHIP
If you read Lex’s book along with Logan’s book then you already know why Logan was shocked that Bree, his mother, was calling Lex. However, it bears repeating for the late crowd. Bree was unfaithful in her first marriage. Lex was the product of that infidelity and the cause of her divorce from her first husband. Because she was going through ‘stuff’, Bree ditched Lex with his father’s family. Lex’s father was married at the time (and thus had also been unfaithful) so you can imagine the kind of welcome Lex received. He was hated and treated like an outsider in the Bishop family.
While ‘healing’ herself, Bree met Logan’s dad, Nick, and Logan was conceived. Given that she dumped him then promptly created a new family, one would understand why Lex can’t stand her. And of course it would be understandable if he hated Logan too. The reason he doesn’t is because Logan practically stalked him into liking him. Lex still hates Bree though.
5: LOGAN HAS ANOTHER SIBLING
Remember the marriage that Bree ruined, there was a child of that marriage too. Her name is Leona. The reason she was never mentioned is because she and her brothers have absolutely no relationship. She’s not as forgiving as Lex. So as you can see though Logan’s family seems perfect, it really isn’t. Families are complicated, man.
6: WHERE IS SCOTTIE’S FATHER?
Still nursing his pride! I don’t think any parent would love being estranged from their children. His pride and insistence that he’s right is what is keeping him apart from them. Will he try to reconcile with them now that Esther has made headway? Probably. But he’s the type who would try to pretend like the past never happened. An apology would never slip from his lips. If you were Scottie or Prince, would you let him back in your life?
7: ‘I BELONG TO YOU’ BY JACOB LEE WROTE THIS BOOK
I have no idea how I found this song but I did, and once I did I couldn’t unheard it. It’s a catchy tune, perfect for a wedding day or a roman. Listen to it sometime. You’ll like it.
