In the final installment, Ricky must deal with the mind blowing news his grandmother has just revealed to him. Feeling like he's all alone in being betrayed by people who were expected to be loyal to him, Ricky soon realizes that the person who can understand his situation completely has been right by his side all along. Draylah too has her own troubles to face, the main one dealing with someone she thought she'd lost but has been able to reunite with. However, there is a big block in her road to bliss, and Draylah is beyond ready to take it out. Will the couple be able to continue to keep that undying flame of love burning, despite their hefty issues? Or will things finally be too much for the troubled beauty and her heartless gangsta?
Also back for the final round are the other couples who are no strangers to difficulties and betrayal. With one couple seeking the ultimate revenge on those they feel have wronged them, another coming to an unfortunate and unforeseeable end, and the last finally realizing just what they have in one another, these unions will surely be tested one last time.
Seeing as this is my second, or third, time reading She Got It Bad for a Heartless Gangsta 4 by Shvonne Latrice I decided to place my focus elsewhere this time around. I focused more on Draylah and Ricky, and Bia and Kito simply because I felt that I didn’t give them enough of my attention with all of Qamar’s craziness.
With that being said though, I was able to FINALLY glean what Qamar’s purpose, in my opinion, was. After interacting with the author after each release for this series and seeing her own distaste for Qamar’s character I think I’m able to understanding Latrice’s genius behind the construction of his character. He was purposed to constantly make the other characters appear normal, sane, and well put together, especially RickyAK.
With all the craziness that has gone on in this series so far I’m glad the author chose to focus more on the closure of both Draylah and Ricky’s backgrounds. For Draylah it was getting custody of the her little girl who was stolen from her, and for Ricky it was avenging his mother’s death. The same could also be said for Bia and Kito’s storyline seeing as Bia was finally closing the chapter that she started in the first installment and starting fresh with Kito who also had a dangerous past but was living differently because of it.
The crazy thing about the entirety of the She Got It Bad for a Heartless Gangsta series has been the growth/maturity of Ricky’s character. The fact that his character has essentially stayed the same, but you can sense the maturity of his character really places him high on my favorite book bae list.
It’s awesome that the author chose to create a Christmas story continuation for this series because I truly wasn’t ready to say goodbye to everyone at the end of She Got It Bad for a Heartless Gangsta 4. In the moments when I’m extra petty I get to thinking that Mischief and co. deserve a Christmas story as well but sadly that’s not going to happen, *cries internally*.
