Me and Kimberly Krey: Dishing our favorite Kissing Scenes!

On tour with Prism Book Tours... 

Welcome to... The Kissin' Tour!

Ooh, you are going to LOVE this!  Today Kimberly and I are going to dish some of our top, favorite kissing moments from movies, TV and books.  This is, after all, a Kissin' Tour.  :)  

Kimberly asked me to review her newest book, Cassie's Cowboy Crave before this tour was organized so I've already done my review and you can read it HERE.  Kimberly and I have exchanged quite a few emails and smiles but this was, by far the most fun we've had so far.  I love our top kissing scenes and I really hope you do too.  :)  It's all about the kissin'.

Aimee:  This one is a little cheesy but it's from the Sound of Music.  The two young love birds (Leisl & Rolf)
 are outside singing "I am Sixteen" and they are dancing around in the rain.  It's sweet and romantic and then at the end the boy gives the girl an innocent kiss and runs away.  She is all dreamy and then she lets out a squee!  I love that because it's a sweet, innocent first kiss that makes my heart do a little sigh.  (this clip gets a little ridiculous repeating it, but it's all I could find.)

Kimberly:  That’s a super cute one! One of my favorite Movie Kisses would have to be from A Walk In The Clouds ~ Keanu Reeves & Aitana Sánchez-Gijón. They’re not really married but everyone thinks they are. They’ve just “smashed the grapes” in the vineyard, and when they come inside, passion erupts between them in a slow and sizzling kiss! I love it! Of course, I have several favorites. But this is definitely up there on the list. Here’s a link if you’d like to see it for yourself: (if you want to skip right to it, you’ll have to go 2 min into the video)

Aimee:  I LOVE that movie and that is one good kiss scene.  Okay so how about from TV?  I'm going with one from last season's Bachelorette show and Drew.  Here my heart does a bigger sigh.  It's when he and Dez are having a romantic dinner and he stands up and drags her outside into an alley, pushes her up against the wall and kisses her.  Um, hello.  Yum.

Okay, I watched yours. I loved it. You’re right. Something about that whole set up is wonderful! I’m posting a link so others may enjoy it too! (sorry I couldn't get this one to link up to youtube to embed it in the post!  

One of my favorite TV kisses is from a show called My So-called Life. Claire Danes (LOVE HER!) and Jared Leto (love him) experience what I think is such a sweet first kiss! I also love the cute little dance she does on the way up to her house afterward; adorable! 

Aimee:  Aw!  See, that why I love the Sound of Music one.  Both have that innocent feel about them and the excitement after the first kiss.  That one is perfect.

Kimberly:  I do have to add one more because I simply can’t help myself. It’s from Lost. A kiss between Sawyer and Kate. Whether you watched this show or not, you must experience this one! Warning: Watching this might make you want to kiss a man while he’s tied up to a tree. Just sayin’.

Aimee:  Oh yeah.  We are awesome at this kissin' picking!  I wonder how long we could go on?!

Picking one stand alone kissing scene from a book is hard to do.  There are so many! So, my next pick is sort of a multi book theme, but the hottest place to kiss, I guess.  The Pantry!  Who knew?!  Anyway, in Cassie's Cowboy Crave, there is some hot kissing in the pantry which was particularly inspiring for me.  (See what I have to say on that in my review and interview with Kimberly HERE)  I LOVED this scene.  It reminded me a little bit of the pantry scene from Kissing in the Dark by Marcia Lynn McClure.  A couple is thrown together during a party game for 11 minutes in the pantry together.  They do some steamy makin' out.  There is also a pantry kissing scene in a Jaclyn Hawkes book I read.  I'm telling you, kissing in the pantry is HOT.  I'm going to be making a sign for above my pantry that says, "The hottest place to kiss"  What?!  I'm not kidding.  My husband doesn't know this yet but he's going love this new idea.  I think I'll give it to him for his birthday coming up in October.  :)
Kimberly:  Haha! Yes, the pantry; you’ve got to love it. And great birthday idea, by the way. How about making two of those signs; my hubby has a birthday coming up as well. ;)

So I have multiple book favorites as well. But I’ve narrowed it down to one incredible kiss from Marcia Lynn McClure’s novel, The Visions of Ransom Lake. In one particular scene, Ransom, upon scolding Vaden for letting “worm boy” kiss her, shows her just how a real man should deliver a kiss. And boy, does he know what he’s talking about. Very yummy scene! Will always be at the top of my list. 

And that is it!  Our first kissin' list!  We hope you enjoyed it, were inspired by it and we especially hope it made you smile.  

Ooh, so now you must tell us YOUR favorite kissing scene!  Share, share, share!

Kimberly Krey honestly does know how to write up a great kissing scene and you won't be disappointed if you pick up her latest book, Cassie's Cowboy Crave.  Kimberly is an awesome sport to do this with me.  It takes such time and I'm not the only one on this tour with something special going on.  Check out all the stops and leave some love where you can.

Twenty-four-year-old Cassie Lovell has a great job, good friends, and an apartment with a killer view. That is, until life is turned upside down. Without the chance to say goodbye, Cassie is forced into a witness protection program on Emerson Ranch. Just when she fears life is doomed, Cassie meets Shane Emerson, the stunningly handsome cowboy who’ll be posing as her newlywed groom. 

Shane Emerson is determined not to fall for the woman he’s agreed to harbor. Especially since the whole thing was his family’s way of trying to get him hitched. So why is it when he takes Cassie into his home, Shane wants nothing more than to turn their make-believe marriage into more than just a sham? 

In a moment of weakness, Shane steals a kiss. 
In return, Cassie steals his heart. 
Yet before they confess their undying love, 
a hidden danger threatens to tear them apart.

  1. I love the first kiss in the movie North and South based on Elizabeth Gaskell's book.

    1. I need to watch that. I'm sure if I can't remember it, I haven't seen it! I've heard other people say that though. I have the book sitting in my tbr pile, waiting to be read. That's probably why I haven't watched the movie. I like the read the books first. Sounds like i have some catching up to do!
