The ABC's of Kissing Boys by Tina Ferrero

Parker Stanhope has played soccer practically since she could walk. And now that she’s a high school junior, everything she’s worked for is finally coming together. She’s paid her dues on the field, and as an upperclassman, she’s a shoo-in for the varsity team. But that’s not what happens.

This year, Coach Hartley moved up every JV player but two—and one of those two was Parker. Now, she’s stuck with the freshmen, her friends are cutting her loose, and her love of the game is seriously beginning to fail. But Parker is determined to get her life back. She has to get on the varsity team, and she has the perfect plan. All she needs now is the right kind of coach.

AND

Invisible Touch by Kelly Parra

Kara Martinez has been trying to be "normal" ever since the accident that took her father's life when she was eleven years old. She's buried the caliente side of her Mexican heritage with her father and tried to be the girl her rigid mother wants her to be -- compliant and dressed in pink, and certainly not acting out like her older brother Jason. Not even Danielle, her best friend at Valdez High, has seen the real Kara; only those who read her anonymous blog know the deepest secrets of the Sign Seer.

Because Kara has a gift -- one that often feels like a curse. She sees signs, visions that are clues to a person's fate, if she can put together the pieces of the puzzle in time. So far, she's been able to solve the clues and avert disaster for those she's been warned about -- until she sees the flash of a gun on a fellow classmate, and the stakes are raised higher than ever before. Kara does her best to follow the signs, but it's her heart that wanders into new territory when she falls for a mysterious guy from the wrong side of town, taking her closer to answers she may not be able to handle. Will her forbidden romance help her solve the deadly puzzle before it's too late...or lead her even further into danger?

Special thanks to the girls of YA Fresh for making this contest possible!

Fresh breath and soft moist lips are always a plus! It's never fun kissing someone with sandpaper for lips! Also, for guys...if they have facial hair TRIM around the mouth a bit. :D

Kissing tip: it's nicer to kiss people you actually like.

Diana Dang said...

If you think there is a possible kissing moment coming up, make sure you eat minimal! Or rinse out after your done. You don't want to transfer your dinner to your partner!

TinaFerraro said...

Great tips! Fun contest!

Here's one I learned but didn't use in The ABC's of Kissing Boys: when you're bored in class, the car or at work, practice making closed mouth circles with your tongue. Never know when the work will pay off!

Polo.Pony said...

Hmmm, brush your teeth! Also, practice on your pillow at night. And, like Summer said, its best to only kiss someone you actually like :)

Thanks for the contest! It looks like a great book!

Lori T said...

Fresh breath is a must along with nice soft lips. I, also, have to agree with only kissing people that you really like.

Dominique said...

make sure the person you're kissing actually wants to be kissed! and if it's a first kiss, don't go too quickly; enjoy it, don't shove your tongue down your partner's throat right away!!

thanks for hosting this contest! :)

Don't have gum in your mouth! It might end up where it's not wanted.

The worst kind of kisser, is definitely the people who try to eat your face instead of kissing you. ^_^

Exfoliate those lips by gently scrubbing them with your toothbrush. Then apply lip gloss and voila, instant kissable lips!

Thanks!

susan said...

keep your lips soft! guys you can use chapstick too!

GirlforChrist said...

My comment probably won't win, and I'll probably sound like a freak. My in my opinion? Just wait for the right guy. Because your first kiss should be special. If it means waiting till you are 30? Then you just haven't found the right guy who deserves you..... Keep waiting!

malleycc said...

Nice soft lips not too wild!

What a Girl Reads said...

Hmm, well Relax, I think that's important, and try to have a fresh breath ;P

Great contest!

My best tip would be to forget everything else and just relax and go with it.

How about a kissing story rather than a tip? My first kiss was in a movie theatre with a blind date. I yawned and he leaned in & kissed me during my yawn. Pretty lame, haha!! Thanks for the contest!

Bunny B said...

Best kissing tip -- keeps your lips hydrated. Always have a lip gloss/balm in your purse. Dry, chapped lips are unsightly and won't even attract anyone to kiss them!

Both of those sound sooooo good! Enter me in to win!
