A few months ago I shared some of my favorite kissing scenes in books in the post you can read here. (from Gabriel’s Inferno and Gabriel’s Rapture by Sylvain Reynard, Easy by Tammara Webber, Sempre by JM Darhower, The Future of Our Past by Kahlen Aymes, and Paradise by Judith McNaught.) Today I want to share some other beautiful kisses from books I absolutely loved. Get ready to swoon!
Nocturne by Charles Sheehan Miles and Andrea Randall
“Before I could stop myself or think or do anything that made any sense at all, I spoke.
Then I stopped talking. She was so close to me, her slender fist bunched up in my shirt, her eyes huge, her lips so close I couldn’t stop myself from touching them, and I was compelled to know what those lips felt like again.
Her words were cut off when my lips touched hers, and I felt a wave of euphoria wash over me. This was no slow, gentle kiss. Our mouths opened immediately, and she gripped the back of my neck, pushing us together closer, a low moan like a growl rising from her throat as she pressed her body against mine, hard.”
The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski
“She leans in and places her lips over mine, slipping her warm tongue into my reluctant mouth. My tongue moves against hers slowly, tasting it first, feeling the warm wetness of it as it begins to tangle with mine. We breathe deeply into each other’s mouths and, unable to resist her or deny her this one kiss, I grab each side of her face and press her forcefully against me, locking my lips around hers with ravenous intent. She moans into my mouth and I kiss her harder, wrapping one arm around her back and pulling the rest of her body closer.”
The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay
” ‘Yes,’ I say, but it’s as if I’m saying a thousand yeses. Yes, I came back. Yes, I love you. Yes, I want you to love me. Yes, I will be okay. Maybe not today or tomorrow or next week. But yes, one day, I will wake up and I will be okay. Yes.
And then he kisses me. Tentatively at first, waiting for something, but there’s no need. I would kiss him forever. I will kiss him forever. I know it like I know my own name. His hands cradle my face, holding me there like he always has. And with every brush of his lips against mine, I know what he’s giving me and what I’m giving him and what it will cost us both. And, for once, I am not afraid.”
The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden by Jessica Sorensen
“His lips part, like he’s going to say something, but then he presses them together and rotates his hat backwards so the visor is behind his head. Inclining his body toward me, my back brushes the pole as his lips hover above mine. He deliberates, putting his hand on the pole next to my head, and then he kisses me. It starts off soft, a light brush of our lips, but then his other hand grabs the pole and his body moves in until it presses against mine. Our legs tangle, our chests collide, and the tip of his tongue runs along my lips until I open my mouth and let him in. A breathy noise escapes t he back of my throat and at first I’m mortified, but it seems to encourage him. Desire and heat radiates through the entwining of our tongues. One of his hands grips my waist, just beneath the bottom of my shirt and my nerves jumble. His other hand travels down my side, his thumb tracing my ribs, before resting on my hip. Tightening his fingers around me, he lifts me up. Gasping, I hook my legs around his waist in a vice-grip.”
Reckless by S.C. Stephens
“Kellan pressed me against the hallway wall, making me gasp. As his lips lowered to mine, his hands reached down and, scooping up my legs, wrapped them around his waist. Hungry and passionate, his mouth worked over mine. When he paused, we were both breathing heavier. We were both ready and aching for the other. ‘I love it when you beg,’ he husked, before stepping away from the wall and carrying me to our plush bedroom.”
Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover
“I dip my head and press my mouth to hers. We both inhale a deep breath the second our lips meet. She wraps her arms around my neck and pulls me to her, welcoming me back into her life. Our mouths are pressed desperately together but our lips are completely still and we’re both attempting to inhale another breath. I pull back slightly because the feel of her beneath me and having her mouth willingly pressed to mine is completely overwhelming me. In all my eighteen years, nothing has ever felt more perfect. As soon as my lips separate from hers, she looks up into my eyes and wraps her hands around my neck. She lifts up from the bed slightly, bringing her mouth back to mine. This time she kisses me, softly parting my lips with hers. When our tongues meet, she moans and I push her back against the mattress, kissing her t his time. For the next few minutes we’re completely lost in what feels like sheer perfection.”
So sweet and perfect! There will be more kissing scenes to come 😉 Have you read these books? Which are some of your favorite kissing scenes? Let me know in the comments 🙂
