Q: Have you had a character that disappointed you? One that you fell in love with and then “broke up” with later on in either the series or a stand-alone book? Tell us about him or her.
Nash Hudson. What started off as a MAJOR crush and basically an all out love fest for Mr. Hudson during the first 2.5 Soul Screamers books, quickly turned sour in the wake of the following 2.5 books.

My Soul to Take (Soul Screamers, #1)Nash was seriously perfection. He was attractive and popular and charming. Humble. Sympathetic. Not an evil bone in his body. To say I was ‘Team Nash’ would be an understatement, for I would write, “I’d SCREAM for Nash ANY DAY!” on all of my school notebooks and bedroom walls. (seriously.)

But alas, like people, characters change, promises are broken and even heroes fall. Some might argue that this shows Nash’s human side, that not even the most ideal gent is safe from making mistakes.

That’s all fine and great. Plenty of characters have made mistakes—but did they learn from those mistakes? Did those mistakes ultimately make that character a better person? Would they repeat those same mistakes twice? Thrice? It may be too soon to tell with Nash Hudson, seeing as though the series still has two books to go. (HUZZAH!) 

But. He HAS made some pretty poor choices, done some pretty nasty things and has uttered a multitude of insulting remarks. I feel my view of him has been altered in a way in which I can never return to 'Team Nash."
(it was a very sad day when i came to this realization.) 

I’m not even sure if I like the boy right now, but as the very wise Jeri Smith-Ready tweeted once, Sometimes people screw up. It's what you do after you screw up that matters.And i'm eagerly awaiting to see what Nash Hudson will do. 


So. Who has disappointed you!? Leave a comment or link me up! :)
