Kissing Week Contest!


In anticipation of the release of my latest book, The ABC’s of Kissing Boys, the Buzz Girls are doing a kissing week!

I'm up first...

I started working on this book in early 2007, and time-wise, it couldn’t have been better because in anticipation of Valentine’s Day, numerous bookstores had romance displays, featuring books about kissing and famous kisses.

I ate it all up. And over the next two years, accordingly, I paid more than the average attention to on-screen kisses.

So...for the purposes of this blog, I thought through them all (oh, how I suffer), and (ta-da), present the one that truly knocked my socks off:

Kate and Sawyer, from the TV Show, Lost.




Without giving much plot away, just know their desperate situation has brought her feelings for him to the surface, and not only is finally acting on them, but she is giving him the love and comfort he so needs at this time.

I mean, look at the head-hold, the power in that kiss!

Okay...

So what on-screen kisses have given you a big “awwww” or made you go weak in the knees? Tell us here in the comments and be entered to win a signed copy of my book! The contest starts NOW and closes at 6 pm PST on Thursday, January 15th. The winner will be announced by Stephanie Hale here on Friday’s blog.

Best of luck!

The first kiss between Jennifer Garner and Timothy Olyphant in Catch and Release. OK movie, but WOW!!! on the kiss. You have to see it for that moment. It was so explosive ... one of those really angry, desperate kisses.

Now I want to see LOST - never have.

And yay on the new book! Awesome cover!

Best,
Sharie

I don't watch many movies but let's see, it must be The kiss between Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams in the Notebook. It's so emotional and romantic, I love kisses in rain *squeals*

Congrats on your book release Tina, I think I said it thousands times here and there hehe. Oh and thanks for the giveaway too<3

Lindsay said...

I would say Kate & Leo (or Rose and Jack) in Titanic.

Janie Emaus said...

I guess I would have to say Kate and Leo in The Titanic and they were pretty explosive in Revolutionary Road.

Megan said...

So exciting about your book release, Tina!!! For me, Bridget Jones' Diary. Bridget and Colin Firth (aka Mark Darcy) at the end. Mmmmmm. :D

The Golfing Librarian said...

Even the "best" movie kiss doesn't hold a candle to your own "first" kiss! I just I could remember her name!
Big time props on the new release!!!

Anna R said...

My favorite movie for a long time has been "What a girl Wants"- the kiss between Daphne and Ian in the boat is sooo sweet.
The kiss between Bella and Edward is much better in my mind.

stephhale said...

I just knew that either Marky Mark or Sawyer would make it into your favorite kiss! ;) I don't watch LOST anymore so I missed that one but I would have loved to trade places with Kate that day at work! ;) Congrats, Tina!

TinaFerraro said...

I'm loving these answers--and totally agreeing with them! But can you believe I've never seen the Kate and Leo kiss because I've never watched Titanic? (Okay, running to Netflix...)

And yeah, Steph...it's always Sawyer or Marky for me, but in the romantic kiss-your-socks-off department? Sawyer is at the head of the class.

Congrats on the release...great cover. And how can you go wrong with either Marky Mark (he is my sister's favorite) or Sawyer (yum!).

There are lots of really great movie/TV kisses, but I am a fan of old movies and I would have to go with Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard in Breakfast at Tiffany's...the kiss in the rain. This one just really makes me go all warm and fuzzy...I know, I am old but I can remember watching this with my Mom and it is still one of my very favorite movies!

I watched just Pride and Prejudice (the Keira Knightley version)yesterday on the Oxygen channel for like nearly the 10th time, so the kiss at the very, very end of the movie between Lizzie and Mr. Darcy is fresh in my mind. It's so sweet and simple as he gives her little kisses before actually touching her lips.

stephanie said...

The Notebook! I don't remember the actors/actresses but that scene when they were old grown up and she was kissing him in the rain. soooo romatic! :]

Marie said...

Definitely the kiss in The Notebook! The kiss, the rain.. that scene is just perfect.

Marjolein said...

I love classic movies and Wesr Side story is my favorite. I love the kiss moment between Tony and Maria in the dance at the gym!

kaymf said...

I would have to say the kiss between Kate and Leo in Titantic!

Meredith said...

The Notebook is a definite favorite. As is the scene at the end of the movie, Sweet Home Alabama. And the first kiss between Ross and Rachel on Friends. At least, I think it was the first kiss... It was the one where it was raining outside and Rachel was cleaning up the coffeehouse alone. They had just fought, Ross stormed out, Rachel locked the door behind him. Ross came back looking pathetic and Rachel unlocked most of the locks and couldn't get the door open. That is one of my favorites.

Ok, I just realized that most of my favorite on-screen kisses include rain. Strange...

TruBlu93 said...

I'd have to say Molly Shannon as Mary Katherine Gallagher on Superstar when she makes out with the Tree. and when the Nun sees her, she's like 'I was doing my part to save the rain forest.' That was priceless.

But the on screen kiss that has made me weak in the knee is Shia LaBeouf and Sarah Roemer from Disturbia.

Congrats on the book release!

TinaFerraro said...

I am loving all these answers!

And Meredith, you are right about the rain being a wonderfully romantic back-drop for perfect kisses.

Anyone have any thoughts why?

Book Spot said...

I'm going to have to go with Spike and Buffy from BtVS...maybe from the episode when they were 'married' as kiss-wise it was sweeter than most of the other episdoes. Though I do just love them in general... :D

Shalonda said...

Ok, I must agree with most of the posters and choose Leo-but not with Kate! My heart melts when Leo and Claire kiss in William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

Miss Annemarie said...

The kissing in the rain scene with Allie and Noah, from the Notebook. Also, Landon and Jamie from A Walk to Remember. Anything movie based on a Nicholas Sparks book melts my heart.

Oh yeah! And of course he one in Titanic!

Email me if I win!

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days! The real kiss right after their fun day out!

taytaybrit13 said...

The kiss that Kiera Knightly as Elizabeth Bennet in Pride & Prejudice, when her and Mr. Darcy almost kiss. I know they don't kiss but even though they didn't you could just fell how much they loved one another by how they looked in each others eyes. Also because that's my favorite Romance movie.

Tera Lynn Childs said...

Okay, I'm going off on my own to say Elizabeth Gaskell's NORTH AND SOUTH. It is an *amazing* movie. And the kiss finally--finally!--happens at the very end after almost four torturous hours of romantic and sensual tension. Whew!

If you haven't see it, rent it!

Peace, Love and ME! said...

Hmm...hottest on screen kiss...Okay, maybe it's because I am in love with Shia LaBeouf or maybe becuase I am just really excited about Transformers 2, I don't know...but the one that comes to mind is the one between Shia and Megan Fox at the end of Transformers. I mean, come on they were chilling on a very hot very animatable yellow car!!! I mean, wow right? Plus...Shia LaBeouf! Yummy!

Marley Gibson said...

Great post, Tina!!! I'm soooooo excited about your book!! = )

Janice said...

I don't know if it is THE hottest kiss ever, but the end of the Sweet Home Alabama movie with Reese Witherspoon and ?, on the beach in the storm.
All I can say is Mmmmmmmmmmm

Just as a ridiculous aside... is it only my guy who always chooses the kiss scene to either go to the bathroom, or go get popcorn?

Bunny B said...

Oh, man! I'm not good at this as I don't have one that I can remember. I did love the chemistry between Patrick Dempsey and Amy Adams in Enchanted!

biblauragraphy said...

The one near the end of Bull Durham where Crash pushes everything off the kitchen table and lays Annie down on it. With Sixty Minute Man playing loud. Guh.

What a Girl Reads said...

The first one that comes to my mind is the first kiss between Mick StJohn and Beth Turner in Moonlight. Do you know how long I had to wait for it? =P

holly cupala said...

I saw ABC's at my giant B&N - turned out! in all its glory! - and almost snapped a pic for you before You Know Who small child dragged me off to ride the escalator. Speaking of Baz Luhrmann movies, I loved the Romeo + Juliet first kiss. Sigh. First kisses are just the best.

danetteb said...

Hi Tina,

ongrats on your newest release!

The best on screen kiss is from the movie Ever After when Drew Barrymore kisses the prince in the old ruins.Sweet kiss!

Hugs, Danette

Heather Davis said...

Congratulations on the release, Tina! So excited to read this one. :)

Best kiss -- Bridget Jones's Diary where Mark Darcy and Bridget kiss in the snow. Loved it!
