The More Than Just a Kiss Bloghop Continues!

That's right, the More Than Just A Kiss Bloghop is still going strong, and I must say, I've read some excellent entries so far already! If I haven't got to your blog yet, I will get there soon, I promise! If you want to sign up, there's still time - details are here.

Today, I'm sharing another kissy scene from one of my books! Some of you will have seen this one before, but it comes from Blindsided, the second book in the Game On series. This kiss happens between Jesse Shaw, and Isabelle, who Jesse met while on vacation in London. It's their first kiss, and Isabelle's first kiss ever!

“You’re making me nervous,” Jesse said.
“Me?” I laughed. “How?”
“I just … this is a big thing. You have a million expectations of how this should be, and I don’t want to ruin them.”
Silly me. I hadn’t even considered that Jesse was under pressure too. But if he was a rubbish kisser, how would I know? It’s not like I had anything to compare it to.
“Could we try again now, please?” I asked. “I’m ready.”
His fear helped calm my own, and this time I reached for him. His waist was firm. Lean, but muscly and I couldn’t help but wonder how he’d look with his shirt off. I imagined a perfect six pack underneath his blue t-shirt, and I allowed myself an internal swoon at the idea.
Calm down! You haven’t even kissed yet, and you’re already undressing him in your mind!
“Are you sure?” he asked, looking down at me with concern in his green eyes.
I nodded, even though my heart was banging so hard I thought it might leap right out of my chest.
Jesse smiled, and this time when he leaned in, I didn’t run away. My eyes closed, and as his lips lightly touched mine, everything else faded away. I couldn’t hear the cars, or feel the cold. I only felt him, warming me with his kiss.


  1. So sweet (and hot)! Lovely. I'm such a big fan of Jesse. :)

  2. I sadly haven't read Blindsided yet. I have it—I just haven't read it yet.

    But this scene was fantastic. Very sweet.

  3. It's so refreshing to read a first kiss scene where the guy is just as nervous as the girl. Kudos to you, Kyra, for changing it up and nailing the emotion :-)

  4. I hope my wife undresses me with her mind. Wait, did I say that out loud...?

  5. Love this! The characterization comes through strong, and I like that both of them were nervous. That's realistic to me.

  6. Great snippet, Kyra! Love how it Displays their nervousness about expectations, then when they kiss at least, it's perfect !

  7. I almost forgot!! I really have to have better time management.

  8. Aww romantic! Loved the build up!

  9. This was sweet. Like Kelly I also enjoyed the build up. Her nervous behavior helped make it feel more real.

  10. Going to echo so many others here. A very sweet kiss.

  11. The nervous touch added credibility to the scene. A sweet moment!
