I’ll be honest, folks. Love triangles in romance aren’t my thing. Typically, if I catch even a whiff of a love triangle when I’m reading a blurb, I back away from that book slowly. Very, very slowly. As if it might jump up and smack me in the face if I move too quickly. But even I have to admit that there are some authors who can quite simply pull off anything—even making me like a book featuring a trope I hate. So, this week’s best of list is for those authors who can move mountains and work miracles (i.e.: make me read and like something that I don’t want to read or like). Without further ado, here are our picks for the top 10 best love triangles in romance today (and no, Bella and Jacob and Edward DIDN’T make the cut)
Over perilously balanced dining hall trays, and video games, the two cope with disappointments that nobody else understands.
They’re just friends, of course, until one night when things fall apart. Or fall together. All Corey knows is that she’s falling. Hard.
But will Hartley set aside his trophy girl to love someone as broken as Corey? If he won’t, she will need to find the courage to make a life for herself at Harkness — one which does not revolve around the sport she can no longer play, or the brown-eyed boy who’s afraid to love her back.
Ryder Ashcroft, a blue-eyed, tattooed, and pierced bad boy, turns Amber off immediately—that is, until he kisses her, stealing a piece of her heart, her soul.
They were as opposite as fire and ice, yet I ached for them equally.
Never knowing she could be broken down in so many unexpectedly beautiful yet petrifying ways, Amber finds herself falling for both men.
Immoral? Maybe. I say undeniable. Uncontained.
But one devastating event changes everything, shattering each of their lives...and Amber isn’t sure she can recover from it.
Wasted Lust is a standalone book, BUT, you have to be willing to go along for the ride. The Sasha character has a long history in all my other books (she was twelve in those books, now she's grown up). And it's a parallel book to 321, so new story, new characters, but same timeline and the plots converge in the middle. No spoilers for 321 in Wasted Lust.
Because even though I saw Manning first, that didn't matter. My older sister saw him next.
But lately he's been distracted by the one woman he can't have. Lovely to look at and even sweeter to know, Kerris is the soul mate Walsh never thought he would find. The problem is, his best friend found her first . . .
Even if their families want them together, James’s brother Miles does not. Dogged by a rabid media who are fascinated by their love triangle, as well as Belle’s hidden demons, James and Belle find they have yet another problem to solve. The Point is haunted by the ghosts of two children murdered in the castle. Their murderer will stop at nothing to keep their souls tethered to The Point instead of letting them live eternity with their mother and father.
Belle is determined to find her courage and help them and she enlists her loopy mother, loopier grandmother, James’s even loopier ex-girlfriend and the dubious (but talented) team of rock 'n’ roll witch Cassandra McNabb and Scottish ghost hunter extraordinaire Angus McPherson to help the children find their way back home.
As she begins to explore her feelings, the conflict between brothers she’d hoped to avoid erupts. She has to choose.
When Brady finally reveals his secrets, Tori makes her decision; one that may leave them all Irreparably Broken.
