When I saw today’s topic I was all “Oh Hell” as I thought I had read few sci-fi stories. I did what any reader on Goodreads would do: look at my “read” shelf. Wonder of wonders I had read several sci-fi books and good ones at that!
So here below are my science fiction favorite couples!
In Young Adult I nominate:
Cara and L’heir in Alienated by Melissa Landers
Two years ago, the aliens made contact. Now Cara Sweeney is going to be sharing a bathroom with one of them.
Handpicked to host the first-ever L’eihr exchange student, Cara thinks her future is set. Not only does she get a free ride to her dream college, she’ll have inside information about the mysterious L’eihrs that every journalist would kill for. Cara’s blog following is about to skyrocket.
Still, Cara isn’t sure what to think when she meets Aelyx. Humans and L’eihrs have nearly identical DNA, but cold, infuriatingly brilliant Aelyx couldn’t seem more alien. She’s certain about one thing, though: no human boy is this good-looking.
But when Cara’s classmates get swept up by anti-L’eihr paranoia, Midtown High School suddenly isn’t safe anymore. Threatening notes appear in Cara’s locker, and a police officer has to escort her and Aelyx to class.
Cara finds support in the last person she expected. She realizes that Aelyx isn’t just her only friend; she’s fallen hard for him. But Aelyx has been hiding the truth about the purpose of his exchange, and its potentially deadly consequences. Soon Cara will be in for the fight of her life—not just for herself and the boy she loves, but for the future of her planet.

Daemon and Katy in the Lux series by Jennifer L Armentrout
Starting over sucks.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring… until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something… unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.
If I don’t kill him first, that is.
“Remind me,” he paused, drawing in a stuttered gasp, “to never piss you off again. Christ, are you secretly a ninja?”
Cassie and Evan in The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey
Here is an excerpt of what I wrote about them:
“Cassie is smart, strong, desperate but determined to keep her promise and save her brother.
Evan is by far my favorite. Torn between two worlds, trying to redeem himself and saved by love. All powerful love saving his humanity. He is like two sides of a coin. One calculating, cold and efficient and the other side is warm, loving, protective. A war rages in himself till he surrender to love.“
“Some things you can never leave behind. They don’t belong to the past. They belong to you.”
Kricket and Trey in Under Different Stars by Amy Bartol
Excerpt of what I wrote about this book:
“I can’t believe it. Amy Barthol has created a whole new universe with new words, like JK Rowling with Harry Potter. And that takes a very imaginative mind!
It’s like a cross between Star Wars, Greek Mythology (priestess and prophetess)and some of Kristin Cashore universe. I really have a hard time to give it justice.
All ingredients for a seriously great book are presents.
-Whole new fascinating universe;
-A quest to discover the potential of the heroine;
-A kickass heroine full of bravado and sarcasm;
-A gorgeous knight in shining armor mixed with super Navy warrior;
-Funny sidekicks teaching slang to the priestess;
-Action, action and more action.
So, I’m really, really happy to be so weak I can’t resist too good reviews for author I love…”
“I’m used to holding on to nothing as tight as I can.”
And my winner is an adult read!
Mia and Korum in The Krinar Chronicle by Anna Zaires
Here is what I wrote about the book:
“Soooo, you’ve got:
1) HOT, HOT aliens. Caveman style with a strong instinct to mate when they find their “other half”;
2) Nanotechnology who’ll help humans to live eternally (shoot me, just heard about it on the news. When science fiction meets reality);
3) A strong willed human female battling with the imposing and gorgeous alien;
4) Hot, hot sex scenes (I’ve read Anna’s hubs helps her with the writing process. If he helped with the steamy scenes let me tell you she is such a very, very lucky girl!);
5) Action and intrigues with nefarious plans designed by a mysterious guy;
6) We also see how the weaker human tamed the alien beast (Girl Power!);
7) An alien universe with inventive technology and original fauna and flora.
Cherry on top, it’s well written.
So cheers for Mia and Korum !”
“From the moment I saw you, I knew that I wanted you – more than anyone I’ve ever wanted in a very long time. And I grew to care about you, even though I knew it was foolish. With time, I hoped that you would feel the same way about me
Who is your favorite sci-fi couple?
Thanks for reading!
