Kissed Blog Tour: Guest Post by Kimberly Loth


Favorite YA Couples ~ A Guest Post by Kimberly Loth

Thanks for having me here today. I read almost exclusively YA novels, but I read a wide variety of genres within that. Today I’d like to share with you my favorite couples in YA lit.

Historical Fiction: 


Jacky Faber and Jamie Fletcher From Bloody Jack by L.A. Meyer. I could never write historical fiction and I’m not crazy about it as a genre but this is one of my all time favorite series. Currently there are nine or ten books in the series and I love every single one of them. Jacky is a feisty girl who pretends to be a boy so she can work as a ships boy in the early 19th century. She’s got serious spunk and attitude and poor Jamie can’t seem to hang on to her. In spite of the fact that they often end up on opposite sides of the globe, she still loves Jamie fiercely.

Contemporary: 


Alex and Brittany from Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkes. Poor sexy boy and rich popular girl, they are doomed from the very beginning. Full of tension and angst, their relationship leaves me on the edge of the seat for the whole book. Simone has written other books in this series using Alex’s brothers and they were very good, but Perfect Chemistry is magical.

Sci-Fi: 


Bree and Finn from Loop by Karen Akins. Technically this book isn’t released yet, but I managed to get my hands on an ARC. It comes out in October. I’m also not crazy about sci-fi, but this book is so fun to read. Bree is a time traveler from the 23rd century that meets Finn in a botched midterm to the 21st century. (Yep, she goes to time travel school, how cool is that?). Bree is fun snarky girl who has knack for getting herself into sticky situations and Finn just wants to keep her safe. He’s smokin’ hot and in spite of Bree’s reluctance he manages to win her over. Their first kiss is one of my all time favorites in YA lit.

Fantasy: 


Harry and Ginny from Harry Potter By JK Rowling. I don’t think I need to explain that one. Paranormal YA: Naomi and Kai from Kissed by me (Yep, shameless plug for my own book.) Wait, I meant to say Naomi and Puck. I love myself a love triangle. Naomi finds herself in middle of doozy in Kissed. Both are good guys, both have reasons for her to love them. Kai is broody and romantic, Puck is fun and crazy. Both are fantastic kissers. How is a girl supposed to pick???? If you want to read more about Naomi, Kai, and Puck, you can find the book here: http://amzn.to/1oeQAPf. It is only 99 cents.
