Lex- Well-- This is another book I've wrote and so my review is going to be biased. But I must say. This book was probably my #1 labor of love thus far. Writing it has meant the world to me and the content, is not like any books I've ever read before. I've also been told that by many others as well.
Lex- What can I say about this book? As the author of this 140K word Novel, my opinion is biased. However I always post my own reviews. So everyone can get an insight into my POV of this book.
Ultimately this book was probably the most internally developed for me. Lex as become a huge part of me. A lot like Emily from my Stricken Series has.
I wrote this novel because it was important to me to encompass unique people. It's about loving who you are through all the trials and tribulations you face in life. It's about coming to terms and accepting yourself, no matter your own faults or differences. Lex has a mountain of internally and physical barriers to overcome. Even though she isn't weak, she still has baggage. Which I am sure many of us can relate to.
When I first decided to write this book many people I spoke to about it stood back and gave me a funny look. Like 'Stephanie you're sure you want to write something like THIS... do you know what you are opening yourself up to?' --- Yes I do know I basically handed bullies and judgmental people a book on a silver platter. Because it's just as my new series States. It's unconventional. Just as all the other books in this series will be. Unconventional.
In my opinion you can find millions of great romances, erotic romances, most of them relatively normal. If you've read my books before you know that I pride myself in NOT writing books like that. I don't want to write what other people do. I want to write things that ultimately either make you uncomfortable or open you up to new views in life.
Don't get me wrong I love books about Susy meeting Robbie in high school and they fell in love and lived happily ever after. That is wonderful. I commend any author for writing a good book. It's not as easy as some may think. I just don't want to write about Susy's and Robbie's --- I want to write about Emily's and Alexis's and Lex's ---
So back to Lex- this book takes place in a small city called Heartfair. It's cookie and family based. It's what you'd picture as a wholesome place to grow up. Lex, is a business owner. And she's strong, independent and has probably underwent more emotional turmoil than anybody I've ever heard of.
I don't want to give away too much. I just want you all to know that this book encompasses people from all walks of life. It brings many feeling, and situations to the forefront and makes you see them. It might make you mad, it might make you sick, want to cry, --- I don't know. All I do know is... I want to thank each and every one of you who does read this book. I can't wait to hear what you think.
Thanks- Much Love- S.K. Logsdon.
