Ah..Sigh...Young Love

Hello everyone! How are you! I am so thrilled to be here today at Goddess Fish Party Pavilion to talk about my new release, Initiation, that has just come out with Decadent Publishing. For more information, you can find it here.

When I was writing this book, I spent a lot of time thinking about love. Young Love in particular because the protagonist of this book is sixteen years old. Is love real at 16? I think I might have a bit of a skewed opinion on this. My parents met when they were sixteen and have been in love ever since. So, although I didn't meet my husband until I was twenty-two, I do believe that people can meet when they're quite young and stay in love forever.

What do you think? Is love in Young Adults books real love?

Comment for a chance to win a copy of your choice of my back list!

I do think in some cases its love at age sixteen but now all 16 years olds know what that really want at that age. Times are different now then what they were when we were 16

I do think love is real at 16, in some cases more real than adult love. Though not together, I still love my 16 yr love and I believe he still loves me. As Virginia said, I didn't know what I want, but I knew we were in love, as flawed as it was at times. Many adults long for that kind of love.

I honestly believe a person can fall in love at sixteen too. We may grow and change as we age, but if the love is strong enough. IT will survive.

I think so. I was just commenting about this in another blog today. Young love is definitely real, though it may be difficult to detect at times what with hormones raging. But often young people can be just as emotionally in tune (if not more) than older adults.

Sadly, I don't think it is for most. Teenage years are more about exploring who you are and who you want to be, but it could happen and I imagine it does for those lucky enough to find it. Adults included.
