Sam did imprint on her, but that doesn't give him immediate access to her likes and dislikes. He would have had to woo her, but with things such a mess it would have been way more difficult. What kinds of things do you think he did or have to do to win Emily? There must have been some redeeming traits he had in the first place to interest her, especially when she knew that getting into a relationship with him would break her cousin's heart.
To be honest, I'm not sure if there was anything else besides the whole "complete devotion" aspect of Sam that Emily liked. The way we hear the story was "Sam accidentaly injures Emily,"Sam's full of total grieve", "Emily ends up comforting him", "She loves him back." IMO complete devotion seems to be like the only thing that's attracted Emily to Sam. I guess this is due to lack of info.
