A-Z Challenge: K is for Kissing!

I love to write kissing scenes and almost kissing scenes and awkward kissing scenes and lead up to the kissing scenes and I wish they would kiss already scenes and anything to do with kissing really. You can usually tell when I'm writing the kissing scenes because I blush and giggle and smile and all around act like a twelve-year-old and my kissing scenes aren't even all that racy. PG, PG-13 at most.                                                                                 
So I thought I'd post a short kissing scene excerpt. This comes from a sequel I wrote to a book I ended up shelving so this sequel has never passed the 1st draft stage.
“Jessica,” he whispered. I smiled at the sound of his voice and let out a little moan. “Jessica, open your eyes.”
     I opened my eyes. His face was before mine. I grabbed his head, curling my fingers in his hair and pulled his lips towards mine. I kissed him hungrily, as if he could somehow quench this thirst I had. A thirst for him.
     His lips had never felt so warm against mine. But they were slow, hesitant. So I pulled him closer, wanting more. My tongue slipped inside his mouth and he let out a gasp. I could feel his arms braced on either side of me. I wanted him to touch me. I wanted to feel his need for me like I had for him. I pulled back and opened my eyes.
     Alric squatted in front of me, his face a mixture of shock and distress. Not the Lord Alric of my dreams.
     “Oh, it’s you.”
Ah, I miss this story and characters something fierce. Anyway, I've got three K songs because I couldn't pick, all to do with kissing.
Kiss Me by Ed Sheeran. This song is super smoldery. Ed Sheeran doesn't have an "official music video" so I picked this one because I love the pictures.
Kiss You by One Direction. This song is super fun and so is the video! I'm not ashamed to say that I like to sing along at the TOP OF MY LUNGS.
Kiss You Inside Out by Hedley. This song is super sexy. Enough said.


  1. That is a intense passionate and interesting Kissing scene :)
    Thanks for the visit to my blog

  2. I love writing the first kiss scenes or the first hand-holding scenes. I feel like a teenager, too!

  3. Adorable! I want to watch you write a kissing scene now lol... New follower, Shawn from Laughing at Life 2

  4. Haha, wait, I'm not sure if I understood due to lack of context--did she think she was kissing someone different? Lol. Also, thanks for introducing me to another great Ed Sheeran song. :)

  5. I enjoy reading them, but do not enjoy writing them. I always feel like I'm going to veer into cheesy territory. Writers who write kissing well are well appreciated in my eyes.

  6. I enjoyed the scene in the book as well as the songs you chose. Have a nice day.
