In Deadly Little Lessons, the fifth book in the Touch series by Laurie Faria Stolarz, Camelia has a lot on her plate. She’s a psychometric (she has powerful premonitions through touch), she’s trying to figure out what happened to a local missing girl, and, oh yeah, she’s involved in a crazy love triangle. She’s dating Adam but still has feelings for her ex, a fellow psychometric named Ben, and she has no idea what to do about it.
Love triangles are everywhere, in books, movies, and TV shows, but when done right, they can be seriously awesome. The Adam-Camelia-Ben relationship is one of those love triangles we can’t get enough of. Inspired by Deadly Little Lessons, here are some of our favorite love triangles. Which trio is best? Vote below!
The Hunger Games
To be fair, Katniss has a lot more to worry about than love: She’s pretty much fighting for her life throughout the whole series. But that doesn’t make choosing between Gale and Peeta any easier. She survives the Hunger Games with Peeta’s help, but Gale’s been her best friend for years. Yeah, her indecision is a little infuriating, but the triangle gets resolved . . . eventually.
The Vampire Diaries
Love triangles are complicated to begin with, but when they involve siblings, things can get kind of weird. Stefan and Damon Salvatore, two super-hot vampire brothers, fall in love with the same human girl, Elena. Should she choose good-guy Stefan or bad-boy Damon? Either way, it’s going to make the Salvatore family reunions more than a little awkward.
The Mortal Instruments
Simon and Clary are best friends. Simon loves Clary, but Clary loves Jace, a Shadowhunter. It sounds like pretty standard love triangle, but, oh yeah, we forgot to mention that Jace and Clary might actually be brother and sister. Remember that thing we said above about siblings and love triangles? Yeah, this one has quite the plot twist.
Pirates of the Caribbean
This one might not be a full-blown love triangle, but we still love the way the relationships between these three characters play out. Even though Will and Elizabeth are pretty much devoted to each other from day one, there’s some definite chemistry between Jack and Elizabeth, too. Seriously, it wouldn’t be a pirate movie without a LITTLE debauchery.
OK, so it’s introduced late in the game, and yeah, it only lasts for a chapter, but it’s SO GOOD! At first, Lily likes Snape and hates James. Then she dislikes Snape and sort of likes James. Then she marries James and has Harry. THEN Snape accidentally gets her whole family killed. Got it? Even though Lily and James get together, Snape keeps on loving Lily . . . always.
Pretty in Pink
Although Blaine and Andie are from different social circles, they really click. Unfortunately, Andie’s infatuation with Blaine prevents her from seeing that Duckie, her childhood BFF, is totally in love with her. There’s some prom night drama, and Andie has to decide between Blaine and Duckie while wearing the ugliest prom dress of all time.
The Twilight series is over now, but it’s hard to forget the intense debate that went on over this triangle. And seriously, Bella had her work cut out for her. Should she choose the hot 117-year-old vampire who literally has to stop himself from sucking her blood when they’re together? Or the hot, friendly werewolf who falls in love with her baby? It’s a tough decision!
