Now, on to the reason you're here. I'm going to sneak my letter into the post, but don't worry, it will be in red and pretty easy to find. :) So, without further ado, don't forget to answer the question below and let's go hunting!
Summary from Goodreads
Fate is a twisted b*$#@, at least his was.
Was one soul worth the lives of millions? The quandary was one that Rydell King had no choice but to face. No matter the answer, the truth remained—innocence was created to destroy him. She was beautiful…extinguishing her to save his people seemed impossible, and maybe it was. As an immortal, his focus was to destroy the curse upon his people, as he devoured the emotion that bore him—exaltation, no matter the cost. She made him question everything.
Mercy had never been crueler.
Do you prefer the love stories where the couple don't like each other at first?
I'm going to answer this because it is a question that I am so prepared to give my opinion on. Plus I'm super fun :P
I really like the idea of hate-at-first-sight (or at least dislike) romances. They seem much more realistic to me as not everyone is willing to admit to that initial attraction when you meet someone. It's just so much easier to dislike someone than it is to tell the world you believe in love at first sight or fate or whatever.
Also, there is a fine line between love and hate (I'm just spouting cliches). It is so easy to not realise that the passionate Feelings you have for someone is attraction and not hate.
In the case where the couple actually don't like each other for one reason or another I think it adds more to the story as they have to overcome whatever obstacles all while butting heads or just ignoring each other and their love develops right in front of the readers' eyes which makes it so much more special. Sometimes having to work to like someone makes it all the better in the end.
I think that's enough from me. What are your opinions???
