Juliana’s Top 5 Imperfect Couples in Fiction
Hey, nice to be here! I’ve been doing blogs and interviews for several years now and I don’t think I’ve ever had this question before! So kudos for making me think. I’ll admit that my list will be varied as I read not only YA, but adult contemporary romance, paranormal romance and middle grade. The couples I’m going to name, to me, are imperfect but this is as much a reflection of their surroundings and the conflicts they face as they are for each other!
–Nick and Amy from Gillian Flynn’s, Gone Girl. They are just wrong period.
–R and Julie from Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion, because well, R is a zombie and Julie is not.
–Buffy and Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. How much more imperfect can you be? They can’t be together because Angel will lose his soul. Le sigh…
–Jonah and Brighton from Tiffany Schmidt’s Bright Before Sunrise. Total opposites pretty much does it for me.
–Alexander and Tatiana from The Bronze Horseman. These two are totally meant for each other, but their circumstance and World War 2 pretty much make things very inconvenient!

And everything changes.
For Monroe Blackwell, one small mistake has torn her family apart –leaving her empty and broken. There’s a hole in her heart that nothing can fill. That no one can fill. And a summer in Louisiana with her Grandma isn’t going to change that…
Nathan Everets knows heartache first-hand when a car accident leaves his best friend in a coma. And it’s his fault. He should be the one lying in the hospital. The one who will never play guitar again. He doesn’t deserve forgiveness, and a court-appointed job at the Blackwell B&B isn’t going to change that…
Captivating and hopeful, this achingly poignant novel brings together two lost souls struggling with grief and guilt – looking for acceptance, so they can find forgiveness.
