Can Charisma and Lamont be sent to another planet?
OK, I waited to answer this question after I posted Charisma’s profile. Lol. I thought I’d do a two-for and talk about both characters.
What can I say about Charisma and Lamont other than…like opposites attract, crazy can attract crazy.
Since For the Love of the Game, Charisma has been trying to bait Morgan into the battle of the century. But Morgan has graciously by-passed her cousin’s efforts to get a rise out of her at each turn. (The dinner party in The Blake Legacy.) Charisma is a great antagonist and spurs good character growth for everyone she comes in contact with except Lamont.
Lamont serves as a good mirror for Charisma. He is her antagonist disguised as a love interest. She’s got Lamont in her sights, despite his overly attentive behavior to Morgan in The Blake Legacy. Lamont’s interest in Morgan was noticed by many readers and I’d love to be a fly on the wall when Seth finally has a chat with Lamont…
This childhood rivalry of sorts between Charisma and Morgan has graduated to adulthood and will play out as they continue to find a way to coexist in the Reed family, if that’s possible. Oddly enough, Charisma is the only character, aside from Morgan and Seth that has popped up (in scenes and with dialogue) in each of The Blake Boys Series books. (She will be in Texas Heat.) This chick just won’t go away!
Keep those questions coming! I look forward to Q & A after the release of Texas Heat!
