Top 14 of 2014: Top 14 Favorite Couples

Hey everyone!  We are on day 4 of this wonderful Top 14 of 2014 event! And as you can see, today's topic is Top 14 Couples.

When I saw this category was on the list I got so excited. But I realized that I liked way more than just 14 couples. So this was definitely not an easy decision.

So here it goes, In no particular order because it would be way to hard to number them in  .

I give to you by Top 14 Couples of 2014! 

Juliette & Warner
Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

These two were probably my most unexpected couple out of the books I read in 2014. They gave a new meaning to the term opposites attract. Especially with how you are introduced to both characters. But the way the author wrote them you just had to root for them. Warner made Juliette feel so strong, confident, and not like a victim. The way she brought out the softer side of him was amazing to watch! I LOVE this couple! 


Sydney & Ridge
Maybe, Someday by Colleen Hoover

Oh Sydney and Ridge! How Colleen Hoover stirred up all the feels with this couple. Bringing them closer, then tearing them apart, and then bringing them closer again. Teasing you hoping that through all these obsticles in their way they would prevail because they were truly meant to be. It was hard not to loved this couple. They complimented each other so well.


Chloe & Drake
Torn by K.A. Robinson

What a beautiful disaster they are. When you look at them you would think they would never work together. The ultimate rocker bad boy with the girl who had a troubled past. They shouldn't fit. It's bad when they are together,  but it's also so good.  


Kalliope & Wilder
Inspire by Cora Carmack

I read three Cora Carmack book a this year and picking a couple out of her books is like picking a needle out of a haystack. All of her couples are amazing but I had to choose  Kallie and Wilder. The ultimate star crossed lovers. With her being a muse and him being a human. Watching their relationship blossom and grow just melted my heart. 


Cricket & Zack
Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland

This story of first love is one for the books (haha see what I did there). Following Zach and Crickets story was unexpected and I'm so glad that I found it.  Seeing them grow as individuals and towards each other. It's everything that first love should embody.  I was glad to a spectator.


Lily & Lo
Addicted to You by Krista & Becca Ritchie

Even with their problems you can't help but cheer them on. Hoping that they will be able to work through their addictions and come out on the other side stronger. They have both been through so much together. They both deserve happiness. With their final book in their story arc written I can't wait to see how it all ends.


Pixie & Levi
Best Kind of Broken by Chelsea Fine

With this being my first Chelsea Fine book, even though I've read all in this series. I just had to pick Pixie and Levi. This story of two broken souls brought together by tragedy. The way they care for each other and heal each other was just so beautifully written and believable.  I wanted them together from page one! 


Caroline & West
Deeper by Robin York

They met in college. West trying to escape the past and find a better life. Caroline was just trying to stay out of trouble. When they both find themselves pushed together due to the most unlikely of circumstances.  I loved the transformation of both the characters from bringing to end. 


Zoey Stark
Redeemed (House of Night series) by PC & Kristin Cast

Zoey and Stark the most unstoppable couple of them all. Together forever they will be, since they are both vampires. They have been through so much together. They have battled death and grieved together. They make you believe that no matter what the world throws at you love can conquer and heal all. 


Mia & Adam
If I Stay by Gayle Foreman

Oh young love,  you just have to love it. Even though they have two completely different personalities. Brought together by a love of music. They just got each other. 


Trace & Nixon
Elite by Rachel Van Dyken 

These two seemed like they would be enemies from the beginning. Him with his need to control everything, and her stubbornness. Ultimately being thrown together for each others safety. I loved their witty banter.


Skylar & Josh
I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios

I just finished this book and this couple caught me by surprise but I am absolutely in love with them. Bonding over their jobs and getting out of their crummy town for good.  They became so in tune with each other. I was routing for them from the moment they met and in my head they will be together forever.


Nadia & Ty
I Want It That Way by Ann Aguirre

How could anyone not love this couple. From their first balcony meeting to Ty's interaction with his son Sam, Ann Aguirre had me hooked.  I never thought that a story about a single dad and a college student would create so many feels. Filled with passion and some angst. This story shows,  Sometimes love happens when your not even looking. 


Avery & Cameron
Wait For You  by J . Lynn ( Jennifer L. Armentrout)

This couple was just so cute! The way Cam was so patient with Avery knowing that something had happened in her past. Avery helping Cam to forgive himself for some of his past actions. Making him realize that he isn't a bad person. Each growing strong with the help of the other. 

There ya go! My Top 14 couple of 2014!  Let me know what ya'll think. Also please share some of your favorite couples in the comments below. I would love to see them!

So here it goes! 

My Top 14 Quotes of 2014 Everyone

"I don’t give a fuck about genius. But I’ll take madness if it gives me you first.”  - Wilder (Inspire by Cora Carmack)


"I think the key to the start of any good relationship is to remember how the other person likes their coffee." -  Cam (Wait for You by J. Lynn)


"It'll take my chances against your fickle heart if it means it’s mine." - Cade (Faking It by Cora Carmack)


"Sometimes you make choices in life and sometimes choices make you." - Mia (If I Stay by Gayle Foreman)


"Sexual tension is like a ruthless pigeon. Feed it once and it will follow you around forever. It never tires or goes on vacation. It just lingers." - Pixie (BKoB by Chelsea Fine)


"Sometimes you meet your partner too soon, but love persuades you to leap, trusting that he’ll catch you. Life is real and it’s right now. Life is fireflies in your palm, gleaming gold, and then setting them free. In the best moments, life is fireworks. Sometimes life is having the rug pulled out from under you and the one you love helping you up. But most of all, life is what happens when you open the door and let beauty in, even if it doesn’t fit according to your plans." - Nadia (IWITW by Ann Aguirre)


"One week? One week was your limit? You said as long as it takes, so where are you?” She swallowed around the tightness in her throat. “You said I was your pain in the ass. Well, get your ass over here so I can be a pain in it. Maybe you gave up after one week, but I haven’t. I miss you, okay? I miss you, and you’re supposed to be outside.” 

" Ruby,” he broke in. “Look out your window.” She spun around in time to see him pull up at the curb and get out of his car, still holding the phone to his ear. “I just hit a little traffic."  - Ruby And Troy (His Risk to Take by Tessa Bailey)


"Never in all my life and in all my years of living in a world of silence have I wanted to hear something as much as I want to hear her sing right now. I want to hear her so bad it physically hurts." - Ridge (Maybe, Someday by Colleen Hoover)


"Scars are just a treasure map for pain you've buried too deep to remember." - Cara (Lone Wolf by Jodi Piccoult)


If we’d never met, I think I would have known that my life wasn’t complete. And I would have wandered the world in search of you, even if I didn’t know who I was" - Ira (The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks) 


"When you've got a shot at deeper, you have to fist your hands in its T-shirt and pull it closer. Tug until fabric rips. Yank at it, reel it in until it's naked up against your belly and you're starving and full, desperate and satiated, dizzy and grounded." - Caroline (Deeper by Robin York)


"It's the kind of kiss that inspires stars to climb into the sky and light up the world." - Juliette (Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi)


"I would have kissed you harder. I would have fought for you more. I don't know. I would have stolen you away, taken your virtue, made myself so permanently etched on your person that every time you took a breath it was my scent that was permeating the air." - Nixon (Elite by Rachel Van Dyken)


"He was worst kind of wrong. He was so wrong it felt right, and that made me feel completely out of control." - Nora (Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick)
