Instead of a top ten this week, I have a top two favourite couples and two romances that I wish happened.
Heartstone Series by Nicholas Rinth: Jack and Sylvie
Acquaintances forced together by dire circumstance equals slow burn goodness. I just love how these characters’ strengths and weaknesses balance each other out, their self-sufficiency, and how they can fight side by side one moment and argue with each other about whether that fight was necessary the next.
Spiderlily Chronicles by Nicole Martinsen: Silhouette and Alyon
The Ships that Canon Sank
The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo: Nikolai and Alina
Mal annoys the crap out of me; he’s a bleh pile of idiot with occasional highlights of mundane (although I must add that he has the best character arc over the series). The Darkling is an incredibly old creeper, a very sexy one, but a creeper nonetheless. Nikolai was just a far better choice overall in terms of romantic interests.
