This was the most difficult giveaway I’ve ever done. It pitted favorite against favorite, one of my book babies against another book baby, and I hated it. I also loved it. I’m not sure what that says about me. After randomly choosing couples to face off, which I thought was stressful, watching vote after vote pour in over multiple rounds and seeing couples left behind while others moved on, was even more stressful.
Before the actual reveal, let’s get to a few bracket superlatives, shall we?
Biggest Cinderella Story (The one I didn’t see coming): Kinsley & Riley
I had those two losing in the first round to Ember & Eva from The Best Lines. I had no idea they would go to the Elite 8 and that people loved those two so much. They also beat Ember & Eva in one of the closest matchups – by 6 votes.
Most Obvious: Kenzie & Lennox
All the Love Songs holds a special place in the hearts of many, and I was glad to see it moving through round after round.
Most Difficult Face-Off: It’s a tie because they were all really hard.
Closest Race: Paisley & Trinity vs. Carter & Ryder
Only 3 votes decided this matchup.
Now, to the Results:
First up… the winner and first annual champion is Dani & Peyton!
And to thank everyone for your participation, I am making the winning couple's book, No After You, FREE in all markets for 1 day only, April 1st. (not an April Fools' joke!)
You can check out the actual percentage results below, where you can see how each couple fared against the other couples they faced. Maybe it’ll help in your predictions next year for those of you who like that sort of thing.
