While we spent last week with our favorite fictional love interests for Valentine’s Day, today’s Top Five Wednesday features five love interests who don’t make the cut as one of my book boyfriends.
Cooper from Love, Life, and the List by Kasie West- By no means do I not like Cooper as a character, because I do! I love the chemistry and humor between him and Abby throughout Kasie West’s Love, Life, and the List. However, somewhat like Abby, I would not be into Cooper’s mixed signals.
Luca from I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo- I never understood why Desi was so enchanted with Luca from Maurene Goo’s I Believe in a Thing Called Love. He most definitely fits the angsty-artsy teenager trope. If it weren’t for Desi’s K drama inspired scheming, I think they would have not gotten together.
Wolf from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer- I’m here to admit that as much I love Marissa Meyer’s The Lunar Chronicles and the ships within, Scarlet and Wolf are my least favorite. Maybe it will take a reread to change my mind, but give me Kai (especially Kai) or Thorne over Wolf any day.
Locke from The Cruel Prince by Holly Black- I still can’t figure out my feelings for him as person, but much like Jude, I wouldn’t trust him as my love interest. Cardan on the other hand…
Alex from the Alex and Eliza series by Melissa de la Cruz- Live love Hamilton but Eliza can do much better!
