Why do we love the anti-hero? πŸ”ͺ

Oh, those bad boys and girls! Don't we love them?

There's just something about the rebellion and going against the grain character that we love. Perhaps it is the fact that these characters sometimes do what we wish we could in real life? Is it because we get a small thrill about 'sticking it to the man'? Is there something attractive or sexy about the character that thumbs their nose at the world? What is the draw to this character?

When most of us were children, we were often given the impression that there were 'good' and 'bad' guys in life. The good guys could be trusted. The bad guys should be avoided. It was pretty simple and to the point. Bad guys always had mustaches and looked shady, while good guys wore a suit of some kind of 'respectable' uniform (so, like, not the one from when you flipped burgers in college).

However, if life teaches us anything (especially now that the Internet sheds light on a lot of dark corners) it is that the lines in the sand aren't always so clear. Maybe the religious figure from your youth turned out to be a pedophile or you witnessed a cop beat the crap out of an innocent citizen. Whatever it was, you may now have a slight aversion to what you once viewed as the 'good guy' and find yourself slightly intrigued by the 'bad guy', therefore making you drawn to characters who don't exactly play by the rules.

Of course, I could be overanalyzing. Maybe we just like watching bombs blowing up everywhere and some devilish character pushing the button. What do you think? Why do you love the antihero (assuming you do)? Maybe the answer might surprise you.

The Jorge Hernandez BLOG πŸ™€

Jorge Hernandez checked into my seventh book, Always be a Wolf in 2017 and essentially took over. In fact, there was no way he couldn't have become the protagonist because his
presence was much too strong to simply be a secondary character. The Mexican-Canadian was charming, powerful and dangerous but unlike many of the antiheroes in books and television, we weren't just viewing his forceful side but getting a peek into his everyday life. As it turns out, even this was anything but boring.  

I decided to write a blog from this character's perspective because I wanted people to learn a little bit about what makes him tick. Granted, I've only written a few posts so far, but I plan to continue to add to it in the future. My hope is that it gives people an inside view of his life and unlike my books, it's written in a first-person perspective, hopefully creating a more personal connection between the reader and the character. 

We follow Jorge's journey through my last three books; The Devil is Smooth Like Honey, A Devil Named Hernandez and my latest, And the Devil Will Laugh. And what's next? Let's just say that the journey is far from over. πŸ˜‰

A Devil Named Hernandez by Mima 😈

If you've been following my work, you might already know that the last few books I've written somehow became a series (although, it wasn't on purpose....it just sort of happened ☺️) The latest book in this is series is about to be released and I'm super excited! I had a blast writing this book and hope you enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it. Check it out.




In the thrilling sequel to The Devil is Smooth Like Honey, Jorge Hernandez is muscling in on the Canadian marijuana industry, unleashing the same savagery that made him a big player in the Mexican drug cartel. Whether it’s controlling politicians and government officials or using intimidation and violence to get what he wants, few people dare stand in his way.
  
Although he takes on his enemies with a deceptive ease, it only takes a single threat to his family to bring out the demon inside of him. Fueled by blinding rage, he attacks with a relentless brutality, showing no remorse and offering no mercy.


In a world tainted by racism, corruption, and greed, he proves once again there is a devil and his name is Jorge Hernandez.



In this eye-opening look into the life of the silver-tongued Mexican fox, you find yourself rooting for the society's underbelly, as sex, drugs and death intermix with family, love, and friendship. 








Also, check out my latest YouTube video where I talk about this book in a little more detail.



And remembered how I mentioned that this book just sort of became a series? There are three books that precede it that you might like to check out too:




It started with a broken heart and it took no time for Chase Jacobs' world to spin out of control. An unwanted pregnancy allows his mother and obsessive future bride to manipulate and control his life, turning him bitter and resentful. His destiny becomes a dark road to misery and whenever he tries to take the wheel, temptation only leads him further astray.
When a provocative and sinister side of life introduces itself, Chase discovers there's an animal lurking inside each of us; a powerful creature that wants to take over. But will he let it win?












In the gripping sequel to We're All Animals, Chase Jacobs moves to Toronto with his Colombian bosses, Diego and Jolene Silva, where they expand their elite sex party business. The underground's best-kept secret is going legit, but just as Chase starts a brand new life, tragedy strikes.
The heartbreaking lessons ahead of him are the most difficult he's ever had to face, and Chase must rely on his new family to help him through. But will his blind faith in Diego and Jolene prove to be a mistake, and has he underestimated just how far they are willing to go to prove their loyalty?

He learns there are times when passion and anger cause you to throw away the rule book even in the face of deadly consequences. He learns that words have a great deal of power but not as much power as silence. But most of all, Chase learns that in a world full of sheep, one should always be a wolf.








El narco. A monster. Un diablo. Jorge Hernandez had been called many things, and it always made him laugh. If there was one word that could be used to describe him, it would be untouchable. Corrupt politicians combined with his charming disposition had contributed to Jorge's success, but it was often the underlying threats behind his handsome smile that sealed the deal. He was unstoppable.
In Paige Noel, he had met his match. She was a woman as dangerous and sadistic as she was soft and gentle. The last thing he expected was to propose after an explosive first meeting, but the intense fire between them was as addictive as the thrill of violence and power.
When some of his personal enemies turn up dead, Jorge shuffles his daughter into a Canadian school, deciding that things are getting a little too hot in Mexico; but does life ever slow down in this dark underground world?
The devil is smooth like honey, but is heaven ever far away?
