This month’s topic:

Favorite First Kisses

There are two moments I love the most when reading a contemporary romance: the first hand hold moment and the first kiss. There is something so magical about the first kiss scene that can leave a reader with butterflies. Here are six of my favorites:


  1. Anna and the French Kiss
  2. I’ll Meet You There
  3. All Broke Down
  4. Open Road Summer
  5. If I Stay
  6. The Sea of Tranquility

And since the first kiss is a huge thing for everyone, I wanted to get some other opinions in on the action. I asked on Twitter what were some of your favorites. Two of you loved The Deal.

If you have any questions, please email me ( . Also, make sure you follow me on Twitter (@andiabcs) for challenge updates and reminders! Don’t forget to use the hashtag #ContRom2017 to follow everyone’s challenge updates on Twitter!
