Do you realize that most of this insta-love is in YA literature? I have seen it occasionally in Adult Fiction, but not nearly to the extent that I see it in YA. Maybe the reason authors do it is because the main characters in YA are teenagers and let's face it, teenagers have a tendency to think they are in love way too soon.
My question though is: does it ever work? Maybe there is a case where insta-love is part of the plot, but it is done really well or maybe the book is so damn good that you don't care. Or maybe the circumstances surrounding the plot allow you to make excuses for the insta-love.
Recently I read The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. This is actually one of the few cases of insta-love I have seen in Adult Fiction.
Another one that had the insta-love thing going on was Cress by Marissa Meyer.
So how do you feel about insta-love? Is there a book where that is part of the plot, but it was done in a way that you just didn't care?
