Welcome, folks! Today we're going to talk about my favorite literary kiss, and all the reasons why I love it so. Okay, I'm a huge fan of kissing scenes. I love them, can't get enough of them, need more, more, more! Honestly, how am I suppose to choose? There are so many books, characters, scenes...ahh!
One of my runner-up couples happen to be Karou and Akiva in DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE. An angel and a devil really did fall in love, and sadly, it did not end well. *TEAR*
Another one I loved was Isla and Josh's wintery Parisian kiss in ISLA AND THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER. If you've read it, you know the one. It's so crazy sweet and has so many feelings. I can't even!
The first runner-up, though, would have to be Mia and Ansel's restroom kiss in SWEET FILTH BOY. Sweet Filthy Boy indeed!
Alas, there must be one winner (And this kiss really is my favorite kiss, even if I wasn't a part of this tour). My absolutely favorite kiss was the one Kestrel and Arin shared in the kitchen in THE WINNER'S CURSE. Is it because delicious sounding pastries were involved? That's part of it, but it's mainly because these two people, who have every reason to hate each other, somehow found a way to fall for someone's soul rather than who they are or what they mean in whatever world. It was sweet, sexy, and offered so many promises. Too many feels but also not enough. Le siiiiigh.
Now, as part of the tour, we get to send a kiss to a friend. What does this mean? Well, today I'll be picking one of my friends to receive a copy of THE WINNER'S CURSE. It pains me that she hasn't read this book yet, but she had a baby and is busy, so I guess I have to be more understanding. Anywho, that person is my super awesome friend, whom I've known for years and adore, Karen S. from Karen's Addictions! KISSES TO YOU!!!
Be sure to check out the rest of the tour and the line-up, and definitely preorder THE WINNER'S KISS. I've already read it twice, and it left me with the absolute best book hangover ever. This is the last book in the trilogy, so there will be spoilers in the summary below.
STOP READING NOW IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE WINNER'S CURSE OR THE WINNER'S CRIME! SPOILERS AHEAD!
"War has begun. Arin is in the thick of it, with the East as his ally and the empire as his enemy. He’s finally managed to dismiss the memory of Kestrel, even if he can’t quite forget her. Kestrel turned into someone he could no longer recognize: someone who cared more for the empire than for the lives of innocent people—and certainly more than she cared for him. At least, that’s what he thinks.
But far north lies a work camp where Kestrel is a prisoner. Can she manage to escape before she loses herself? As the war intensifies, both Kestrel and Arin discover unexpected roles in battle, terrible secrets, and a fragile hope. The world is changing. The East is pitted against the West, and Kestrel and Arin are caught between. In a game like this, can anybody really win?"
