  1. These are so gorgeous! Makes me wanna kiss somebody… LOL! You did a great job putting all of this together. Thanks, Allie! :) <3

  2. Oh gosh. So hard to pick just one favourite first kiss.

    Okay, here goes. From Outlander – Jamie and Claire. At their wedding, where it’s all awkward and uncertain and they’re getting married for reasons totally other than love. They have no idea at the time where it’s going to lead them.

  3. Hmm? I don’t know if i can pick one. I have so many. I guess it would be Hermione and Ron in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. So sweet.

  4. Ugh! This is too hard! Should I pick Obsidian? Beautiful Disaster?(I love me some Travis!) Anna and Kaidan from Sweet Evil? Mara and Noah from The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer? *sigh* That boy . . . Anna and Etienne St. Clair for Anna and the French Kiss. Diana and Matthew from Discovery of Witches. Or Nora and Patch from Hush, Hush. *fans self*

    *Book Overload*


    *gasp* . . . *MIND BLOWN*

    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

  5. It’s too hard to pick one, but I definitely *fistpump*ed when Ron and Hermoine kissed. My god. It was so perfect!
