Entangled Summer Carnival: Kissing Booth

 
Welcome to the Brazen & Scorched Kissing Booth! Brazen and Scorched are all about the sexy and we are talking favorite on-screen kiss of all time. Tessa Bailey, Cathryn Fox, Gina Maxwell and Katee Robert are here to share their favorites and we would love to hear some of yours. So be sure to leave a comment and don’t forget to enter the giveaway below.  
Until the end of time, I will maintain the kiss between Julia Ormond and Richard Gere in First Knight is the greatest kissing scene of all time. I think there might be sexier ones out there, but this one sparked my first official Lady Boner. Probably because it was forbidden and so damn angsty. Oh and the build up?? Yesssss please.
 
For years I just didn’t get ‘Matt Damon’ as a sexy guy. I thought he was a great actor, but when women swooned over him, it left me scratching my head—until I watched Bourne Identity. Matt Damon became a sex God to me that day, lol. I watched that kissing scene a few times, and it ‘gets’ me every time.  The way washes the girls, here, and cups the back of her head when he really gets into the kiss, oh my. Totally swoon worthy! 

One of my more recent fave on-screen kisses is between Oliver and Felicity on the CW show Arrow. I’m a huge Olicity shipper, which is why I made them character inspirations for my book Tempting her Best Friend. For two seasons, the writers completely tormented us with a will-they-won’t-they situation. Finally, in episode one of season three, they go on their very first date. The world suddenly feels right for Olicity fans everywhere. Birds are singing, the sun is shining, and unicorns are prancing around and farting out rainbows. But then bad guys ruin their happy bubble and make Oliver doubt his ability to lead a normal life while still being the Arrow. So this kiss was two years of hope colliding with two minutes of despair all at once. Passion and love, an apology and goodbye, heart-lifting and heart-wrenching. And on top of all of that, the artistic way it was shot was simply breathtaking. Oliver grabs her face and the camera spins counter to them until there’s a light directly behind them. As they pull away from each other, that light shines, almost blindingly so, for a few precious heart beats and it gives us hope…then it fades away as we realize this isn’t a beginning, it’s an end. *cue snot-nosed sobbing*

I know this is a little cliche, but I’m pretty sure my favorite onscreen kiss of all time to date is the one in the rain in The Notebook. It’s such a great scene. They’re both yelling at each other with years’s worth of pent up anger, and he just macks on her. She’s still in the process of telling him off and he’s like “YOU ARE WHAT I NEED, WOMAN.” And it was perfect.

Crashed Out by Tessa Bailey


About the Book:

His inspiration. His torment. And his temptation…

Jasmine Taveras is the reason Sarge Purcell grabbed his six-string and bailed the hell out of New Jersey four years ago. She’s the fuel for every song he’s ever written—each one laced with bitter, hard-edged, hungry lust. Now, with his hugely successful band on temporary hiatus, Sarge is determined to prove to Jasmine that this “kid” turned into every inch the man she’s always needed…

Men are slim pickings for a single factory girl in Hook, New Jersey…until tall, broad-shouldered hotness walks—or rather storms—into Jasmine’s life. Sarge’s return shouldn’t affect her this way. He’s her best friend’s much younger kid brother, and the kind of rough, gritty, sexiness Jasmine has no right to taste for herself. Even if he lets her.

But lust is a blinding, insatiable force. And when it crashes, it will take both Sarge and Jasmine down with it…

Hands On by Cathryn Fox

 

About the Book:

His sexy lessons are ones she’ll never forget…

When hot as hell Danielle Lang showed up and asked me to teach her about sex, I thought I was hallucinating. Turns out the beautiful psychologist needed an extra bit of schooling in all things sexual so she could teach a class.

I’m always up for helping a friend. I mean, it’s the least I can do. What I wasn’t expecting is for her to turn the tables and teach me a few things. Only this short-term promise of two weeks in her bed is going by a little too quickly. Not that I’m thinking forever or anything.

I’ve got a football career to get back to. And she doesn’t want to be a part of my world. There’s no way we can be together—so I’m going to make sure I enjoy every sexy second….

Shameless by Gina Maxwell

About the Book:

People say I’m shameless. They’re right.

I like my sex dirty. It takes a hell of a lot to tilt my moral compass, and I always follow when it’s pointing at something I want. That goes double when it points straight at the one girl in all of Chicago who’s not dying for a piece of me.

She’s all I can think about, and that’s a problem, because she wants nothing to do with me. But I’ve seen her deepest secrets, her darkest fantasies, and they match mine to a fucking T.

I want her. Bad.

Now I need to show her how good it can feel…to be shameless.

Foolproof Love by Katee Robert

About the Book:

The bad boy is back in town, and she needs him to pretend he’s hers…for now.

Bull rider Adam Meyer put Devil’s Falls in his rearview mirror years ago and hasn’t stopped running since. Now he’s back—temporarily, if he has any say about it. Restless, he finds himself kissing the sexiest girl in town…and agreeing to be the fake boyfriend in her little revenge scheme.

Jules Rodrigez isn’t interested in the role of town spinster. Being seen with a hell raiser like Adam is the perfect way to scandalize the residents, make her ex jealous, and prove she’s a sexy, desirable woman. And if their plan includes ridiculously hot sex—in public, of course—all the better.

But this thing between them has an expiration date. Putting down roots isn’t in Adam’s blood, and Jules’s roots in Devil’s Falls are bedrock deep. He’ll leave, even if it rips out his heart. But this time, he’s not sure he’ll survive it…
