I think, for both of them, there was this instant attraction. Curiosity, mystery, appeal, an unknown calling. There was everything that made blossom the love.
Lauren loved Bo from the second they met, meaning that everything since this moment, everything she felt, every hint, every glance, tended to confirm the truth behind : love.
So yes Lauren loved from the second they met.
And I think yes, so did Bo.
They felt something, at the same time. This thing between them that we can call a budding love.
It wasn’t an easy thing, because of the fae world/rules/challenges… But here they are. Sharing a love stronger than any.
